Make Money Blogging in 2017
Make money blogging.
For the person who:
- hates traffic
- enjoys the company of his wife and children more than most
- does not desire to have someone set his daily priorities for him.
- looks at those online reports of how no one is coming to save you or give you anything and chuckles
- hates cubicles
…the idea of learning to make money blogging is a bright light of hope. They understand that they are not their job. Their job does not define them.
A job is how you eat. It is how you take care of your family. Nothing else. To the extent your job defines who you are, you are defined by another human being and not yourself.
So, what is the plan?
What Do I Sell?
You can sell:
- Your own products if have them or plan to produce them.
- Products and services of others you either like and use or think folks will benefit from.
- Include Google Adsense and such. Small change but when you blog becomes popular that income can be significant.
How Long Does It Take To Make Money?
First, understand that you are going to have to be patient. Blogging is planting, like a farmer plants seeds.
You plant at the beginning of spring.
You collect the fruits of your labors as the end of the summer.
Remember that old soap opera, ‘Days of Our Lives?’ Well…
Like seeds in the ground, so also are the blog posts on our websites.
Your First 90 Days
Breaking your year into 90 day segments is a good way to organize your work. It gives you a time frame long enough that you can do some serious work as well as be able to observe the results.
Once you know what you want to do, you decide how far along in the process you feel like you can get in that time period. It is okay if you want to start out with small expectations for your first 90.
That is not because I don’t believe you can accomplish great things; just exactly the opposite.
It is precisely because I believe that you, a human, an offspring of Deity, can accomplish anything that sits within the boundaries of your imagination.
We just want to stretch the perceived boundaries imposed by your imagination. Every 90 days expand your borders a little bit.
You will do this until you realize that the boundaries are set by you.
Then they disappear.
Then you get rich.
Another 90 Day Plan
All the big, six figure+ earners in the online marketing space agree that one can be independent in 90 days. You can make money blogging in your first 90 days. Lots of folks do.
Yes, that is something that is agreed upon. As with all things, the devil is in the details. Also, let me be clear, overtly so, that there are no guarantees in this or any other business. If there were guarantees, they would pay you minimum wage because they, not you, are taking all the risk.
But, back to making money in your first 90 days. When I got started in this last go round, I make my first $125.00 commission in about three weeks. So, I know without a doubt it can be done because I did it.
I did not even work particularly hard at it. The purchase was made through a blog post I had set up.
You get me? Here is what you are going to do in order to repeat it:
- Set up your blog.
- Pick something you want to sell.
- Write a blog post
- Post it.
- Promote it.
You do this. People will see your post. Those who:
- Like what they read
- Think you can help them
- Who and find the articles, videos and free training that you provide helpful
will then spend money with you to solve their other problems.
What do you do if your 90 days does not get you to where you want to go?
Make another 90 day plan based on what your learned in your first.
Is this an oversimplification? Yep.
You will have to develop your own style and understand that as you read, learn, observe and study your own style will emerge. As your style emerges, so, too, will your native audience.
I bought it. I learned a lot, therefore I am recommending it to you.
