Becoming a Blogger

Everything You Need to Know About Becoming a Successful Blogger (in Six Months or Less)!

What does it really take to become a successful blogger that actually makes money? And how long does it take to get there?

That's the exact question I asked myself back in 2015 when I started my blog. I wanted to make a living writing, working from home, and raising my own babies. I also wanted to spend more time lounging on the beach and drinking margaritas. Is there a job opening for professional "beach loungers"? There should be...

If you have given any thought to starting a blog, then you probably already know there's more to this blogging business than most people realize. And, if you're trying to earn more income from a blog that you already have, you probably know that's not an easy task either.

Sadly, most bloggers give up on their goals before they even have the chance to earn a couple bucks from their blog. They give up because they don't have the strategic plan, the proper tools, or the knowledge about what it takes to actually make money blogging.

Well, the "giving up" ends today.

I personally designed this online training course to help every new blogger and hobby blogger take control of your plans and goals, and turn your blog into a money-maker this year!

I'm going to show you the exact system that I used to create my blog, start my business, and start making money from my blog (in less than 6 months).

Here are just a few topics that my 21-day course includes:

  • How to set up your blog the right way. We’ll go over my step-by-step guide for getting your blog set up to make money from day one. It's actually not difficult or expensive, not at all.
  • How to write content that attracts readers to your blog. More readers can mean more income and more business opportunities, so it’s important to write attractive content.

  • How to optimize your posts for search engines. SEO (search engine optimization) is a big part of blogging success. We all need to stay on Google’s good side, so I'll give you my best SEO tips to help you do that.

  • The top 10 systems that bloggers use to make money online. Most people don’t even know what a blogger really does to make money. I’ll show you the top 10 ways that you can make money from your blog, and help you figure out what income strategies you want to focus on.

  • Making money through affiliate marketing. How it works, how to join affiliate networks, and how to write content that actually makes you money through your affiliate programs.

  • Creating and selling digital products. We'll go over some great tools for creating profitable digital products.

  • How to use email marketing to grow your blog. I’ll show you how to start collecting email addresses on your blog (for free), how to write emails that people will open and read, how to design an automated email series, and how to use your email list to make money.

  • How to optimize your social media channels to grow your blog. You should be somewhat active on ALL of the big social media networks: Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Our focus is going to be on setting up your blog the right way, making money from your blog, and filling your blogging "toolbox" with the right tools for success.

You don't need a huge investment to set up your blog and start making money. You can set up your blog for under $100 and you can start publishing content TODAY. It is seriously that simple.

If you truly want to do this, I'm going to show you that it's possible.

Now, you're probably asking yourself, is this course right for me?

  • If you are interested in making money from your blog, but you don’t know where to start, then this course is for you. I designed this course for beginners and hobby bloggers that want to start making money (or increasing their income) from their blog.

  • If you’re looking for specific, strategic steps to build up a profitable blog, then this course is for you. I'm all about providing an insane amount of value for a reasonable price. This course is deep, detailed, and very specific. I'm going to shoot you straight from day one and show you the exact steps I took to build my blog into a business.

  • If you’re okay with putting in the time and effort that it takes to become a successful blogger, then this course is for you. Nothing works unless you do. You can buy a hundred courses just like this one, but you won't get anywhere if you don't put in the work.

And I'm not going to sugar coat this: there will be hard work involved.

Blogging is a fun and flexible field of work, but it's still work. Especially in the beginning. I will help you with the strategic plan and the blogging tools, but you'll have to put in the time and effort. And you absolutely CAN do this.

This course is designed to help you get to where I am today. I'm getting paid to do what I love (write and teach), try fun products, go on family adventures, and enjoy my kids every day.

And we do lots of beach lounging, so that part is totally going on my résumé! It's absolutely possible, and it's within your reach right now.

I'm here to give you all of my tried and true secrets for turning your blog into a business. And this course will show you the exact system that I used to walk away from my day job and become a full-time blogger.

Some things to consider before signing up for my course:

1. I recommend starting your blog on a self-hosted site, and the content in this course will reflect this recommendation. I will explain the step-by-step process of starting your self-hosted website using Siteground and Wordpress.org (it's not hard at all).

I do not have a lot of guidance to provide with regard to free blogging platforms, like WIX, Weebly, or Blogger. In fact, I don't recommend them if your desire is to build a profitable blog.

There is nothing wrong with using those platforms as a starting point, but in my experience, Wordpress.org is the only way to go if you're building a successful blogging business. Of course, you can always start off using one of these free sites and then switch later, but if you can swing the small investment, go with a self-hosted site from day one. I even have a few tricks up my sleeve to save money on hosting!

2. I recommend treating your blog like a real business, starting today. It will take time, patience, and investment for your business to grow. You are not going to get rich overnight just because you purchased this course. So please, don't expect such a miracle.

This course will cover the essential parts of my personal business strategy, the pitfalls to avoid, and my top tips for building your blog into a profitable business. I will teach you how to build up your fanbase, your email list, and how to start making money. But all of this content means nothing if you don't put in the work, every single day, and turn your blog into your career.

There is nothing wrong with having a hobby blog, but if you really want to become a career blogger and make a lot of money doing it, you have to treat this like a real business. And you're not alone. This course is going to take you through the essential steps and show you how to do exactly what I have done.
