It’s time for me to share one of my best-kept secrets with you: blogging and affiliate marketing challenges. I have participated in several and am even creating my own top-secret challenge for my readers. One of the reasons I love these is because they’re all about baby steps. You do this day one, then that day two, etc.
I can usually get a LOT done in this manner all by myself but sometimes I like being challenged to get out of my comfort zone and grow my online income.
Which is the other part I’m writing this post today…
Good grief, that’s a scary thing to put out there.
As you know, my online income allows me to work from home, be there for my son, cover bills, and have fun going to dinner, the movies, amusement parks, visit family out of town, etc.
BUT I want more freedom and flexibility. I have some grand visions of buying a new home, a new car, vacations…and they require money. So since I live the freedom-based lifestyle with an online business, I’m going to give myself a raise.

Circling back to challenges, I purchased this blogging and affiliate marketing challenge package deal at 80% off and here’s how I’ve decided to level up in my biz:
I’m going to launch a PLR business.
That’s pretty scary to say, too. I’ve gotten pretty far in my business and it’s still scary to do new things and put myself out there (and one of my mentors assures me that’ll never change, no matter how far along I get, so I might as well get used to it.)
I’ve been thinking about doing this for awhile now. Maybe 6 months or more. I used to write content and will still occasionally take on clients but the return on that is quite low and, frankly, I’m not willing to do what it takes to market myself as a premium web content writer. My heart’s not in it.
But I can write amazing content and I can do it quickly. I know what kind of content niche sites need (and one of the challenges even goes into how to find topics, so I’m covered there.)
Why I’m Using Blogging and Affiliate Marketing Challenges and Not Just Building More Content
First of all, I’m still going to be blogging and building content on my niche sites. But I know from experience that it takes time to find the right keywords, get more traffic, etc., and I’m looking to increase my online income fast.
Second, I don’t want to increase my income with services – at least, not right this minute. I’m brainstorming potential services I can offer but I haven’t settled on these yet. I am working on this behind-the-scenes, though, so services could be another way I grow my income down the road.
Third, I like the hand-holding and variety these challenges provide. One challenge is all about blogging and another is an affiliate marketing challenge. Another is about list-building. Another goes into writing for Kindle (some are making 5-figures a month selling inexpensive Kindle books! Whaaaaaaat?!?)
And then there’s the PLR challenges – one for how to use the PLR you buy, one for how to launch a PLR business.
It’s my intention to supplement my online income with PLR, not replace anything.
Which, really, is just smart business these days. I have my ad and affiliate income, I’m working on creating my own products (maybe services, too), and now I’m going to expand into a sort of service/product hybrid.
And bloggers always need content, so if I can network and get myself out there, I might have a good chance of meeting my goal. After all, the two fastest ways to bring in income online is with services and products and you can make really good money selling PLR.
So I figure, why not?

What’s In It for You?
This post has been all about me and I don’t like starting off that way, but I wanted you to know what my plans were. It’s going to keep me accountable to you guys. If I haven’t launched my PLR biz in 2 months, I want you guys asking me what’s up!
Now that I have that out of the way, I want you to think about snapping up this pack of blogging and affiliate marketing challenges and doing them with me! If I get enough interest, I might even start a private group for us where we can network, get ideas, and help one another.
What do you think?
Ask yourself where you could level up in your business.
- Could you use some help being consistent with blogging?
- Could you use some help growing your affiliate marketing skills?
- Could you expand into another branch of business and level up that way – maybe PLR or Kindle books?
Let me tell you this: I was going to pick up just the PLR launch challenge for $67 but with this special offer, I get ALL the CHALLENGES for a little more.
I’ve already picked up the pack of challenges. I’m already working my way through one of them and will start working on the PLR launch challenge this week.
If I want to increase my monthly income in the next couple of months, I need to hustle.
What could you accomplish in the next couple of months to grow your business? What if you could get out of your comfort zone, increase your income, and do it all in a pretty easy way?
Try an affiliate marketing challenge. Or join me in launching your own PLR side hustle. Think outside the box and find a way to grow your own business…there are lots of opportunities here for you to do just that!
