How to Make Money With Your Blog
WORK ANYWHERE, MAKE MONEY, DO ANYTHING
Wouldn’t it be great if you could make a living from your blog? Wouldn’t it be great if you could work less and have more time for what you want? Want to run a website that brings in money while you lay on the beach or play golf?
I used to think that it wasn’t possible to make money online unless you were unscrupulous or got really lucky and invented something like Facebook.
I’m not going to lie – it’s not easy to make a living from your blog. But with the right skills and technique (ones anyone can learn), you can create something awesome that helps people and earn a living doing so.
I started this website in hopes of traveling more, sharing my passion for travel with others, and becoming a freelance writer. I had no website knowledge. No clue was to what SEO was, how to gain traffic, or make money with a blog. I had no “marketing” skills or any clue as to where to begin. It was all a mystery to me.
But now I make a full-time living through my website and have been able to help people travel more. I understand websites, coding, SEO, and online marketing. And I did it without selling out or compromising my values.
There’s a lot of “shiny” marketing courses that will “teach you” how to make money online. I took many when I started and they were awful. They never related to me the beginner and they made promises they couldn’t keep. Moreover, they were full of slimy sales tactics I wasn’t comfortable doing.
If you’re looking for a way to take your hobby website to the next level, share your knowledge with more people, and make a living without being a slimly sales person, then my book is for you.
Everything I tell you in my book I do myself. That’s why I know this stuff works. I don’t promise you millions. I am simply going to give you honest, practical, and tested strategies that worked for me (and all my students) so you can become your own boss, make money with your blog, and do what makes you happy. You don’t need any prior knowledge either. This book is for beginners and advanced bloggers. It’s the expertise that gotten me featured in all the below publications because it works:
HOW THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU?
With this book, you’ll learn the skills you need to become successful and follow in the footsteps of the over 1,000 other people who have bought this book. This book will help you:
Break through the clutter of the web and let your story be heard
With so many blogs out there, it can be hard to know where to start or break through the clutter. With this book and my help, I’ll help you pick an area of expertise so you can rise to the top and break through the crowd and get a large and global following.
Learn how to make money ANYWHERE
The core of this book teaches you how to make money with newsletters, book deals, affiliate marketing, creating courses or books, sponsorships, direct advertising, Google Adsense, and more from anywhere you want in the world. I spend my days on the beach doing what I want by using the strategies outlined here. You’ll develop a stream of income that allows you to live the life you want, on terms you want, from anywhere in the world.
Get tens of thousands of visitors each month by learning the best practices in audience building
You set up a blog, you write a post, and the traffic comes right? Wrong. It takes a lot of work to build traffic and awareness of your blog. And with so many different social networks out there, it’s easy to misuse your time. This book will show you the most time efficient strategies to put your energies so you can get thousands of readers to your blog per month through Stumble Upon, Twitter and Facebook, guest posts, and viral content.
Get big name media attention to your blog
Within this book are the tips and secrets I use to get mentioned in big name media outlets (BBC, Time, CNN, NYT, and more) and how you can leverage your unique story and expertise to land interviews and quotes in large publications thereby increasing your audience and establishing yourself as an expert in your field.
Find out how simple Search Engine Optimization is – and outrank your peers in Google
I’m going to tell you a secret. SEO isn’t that hard. If you know a few basic principles about how search engines work and follow those principles, you can get lots of traffic. Buying this book will show you the basics of how search engines work, what you can do to rank high in them, where to get links, and what’s good SEO vs. bad SEO. I hardly spend anytime on SEO and I average 70,000 visits per month from Google. Why? Because once you do a few things, the rest falls into place which means you can spend more time on what is important – connecting with your audience and gaining readers.
Create a long term road map to help you reach your goals
Most bloggers fail because they don’t know what they want or where they want to go. You can’t become successful if you don’t know what you want. When you buy this book, I’ll help focus your attention, create a list of goals, and help you develop a plan for monetary success. Because the most successful bloggers and business have clear goals and plans how to reach them.
Become a success no matter your field
My main experience is building travel websites but I’ve built websites in other niches. I’ve built music websites, bartending websites, home improvement, and pet websites. I’ve used the same tips in this book on the other websites too. The same principles that apply for travel blogging apply in every other topic. While much of this book is focused on travel, the same principles that create a successful travel blog also create a successful blog in any other niche. Promise.
