Could it be possible that you don’t need skills or experience to build a money-making blog?
What if you could build a money-making blog without any experience or skills? Believe it or not, some bloggers are killing it with their blogs and they started out knowing nothing about starting, building, and marketing a blog. Nothing!
They have the same challenges as you. They are:
- Busy with family/kids, work, school, friends, chores, and more.
- Have no technical skills.
- Don’t know how to write, let alone know what they would write about on a daily basis.
- Have numerous distractions pulling them different directions.
- Don’t know what they would do even if they could get started.
These challenges hold people back from doing something that could change their lives.
Why Start Blogging?
The main reason you should start blogging is because it’s FUN! It’s also a way to be of service to others. And when you start a blog and have the right growth strategy in place, you can make great money, too!
That’s why I’m such a strong advocate for you to make money by blogging. I recommend treating your blog as a business from day one, which sets you up with a great mindset, allowing for more opportunity to create a solid asset that helps others.
Blogging is a way to truly love what you do and even though it takes work to blog as a business, you’ll be surprised at how effortless it feels.
The Right Stuff
That’s not to say that you can slap up a blog and a couple of posts and rake in the dough. Hardly. Blogging is easy, but you do need a strategy in place. Otherwise, everyone that put up a free blog and journaled their lives would be millionaires.
I don’t say this to sound harsh or cynical. I’m trying to get across to you that you need to create a high-quality blog with high-quality content. You need to be committed and consistent.
This is where people either get stuck or give up on blogging altogether.
They don’t realize that while they don’t need to be a tech wizard or have a business degree in internet marketing, they do need to take the right steps. And for this, I recommend these budget-friendly blogging and affiliate marketing courses and this 60-day plan for building a profitable blog. Either one – or both! – will walk you through the process with baby steps you can complete on your schedule.
How Long Will it Take Me to Make Money by Blogging?
This is one of the first questions people ask when you start talking about blogging for income. The good news is that if you do it right, you can make money within days. Definitely within your first 30 days.
But there is a LOT of variables that can affect how much money you make and how fast.
You need to choose the right niche, one that is profitable. Not all niches have money-making potential.
It’s also important to write the right kind of content. You need to write high-value content that solves a problem or eases someone’s pain. Basically, a reader is always wondering “What’s in it for me?” and you have to deliver.
Building a full-time income with your blog is a long game. Be prepared to dig your heels in and work as long as it takes to get to where you want to be.
Create a high-quality blog and you will make money. No joke.
What is the Best Way to Make Money with a Blog?
You may be starting from scratch as you build a money-making blog (or, you may not) but what’s great is that there are several ways you can make money with a blog!
My top pick for making money with your blog is by becoming an affiliate and promoting affiliate products. If you’re not familiar with this monetization model, you simply apply to be an affiliate with a company like Amazon or an aggregator like Commission Junction. Once you’re approved to promote products, you include your link in blog posts, sharing products you know, like, and love.
You can also include ads on your site, offer up spots for sponsors to purchase ad space, create your own products, or offer services. I go into more detail about each monetization method here.
What if I Hate to Write or Get Stuck for Blog Post Ideas?
Here’s the thing, though: when you find a niche that you love, one that you are truly passionate about, you’ll find you can’t wait to write your next blog post.
When you realize that you get to wake up and write about something you love and help people, you have found freedom. You are on the verge of creating a life you don’t need a vacation from!
And if you ever do get stuck thinking up what to write or how to write as you build a money-making blog, this 60-day self-paced blogging course has 15 templates to jumpstart your writing. That’s 15 post types that you don’t even have to think about! Just pick a template, fill in the blanks, publish and promote. It could not be simpler than that.
