I know Everyone Says They’ve Come Up the Hard Way… but We Really Have!

Blogging is a great way to share your thoughts, ideas, and opinions with others. It’s a great way to start or grow your business or brand.

It’s a good way to stay connected with family and friends. With the advent of social media, blogging has become easier than ever. Whether you are just starting out or are already established, there are many different ways to blog.

There are those who blog from their own website, those who blog on popular platforms such as Instagram, and those who blog on blogs they come across on the internet. However, in order to be successful at blogging, you need to take a personal approach to it. 

Blogging is more than just putting your thoughts on paper; it’s about connecting with people through words. But as with anything else, there are good and bad ways of setting up your Blog.

We made that mistake a year ago… and had to scrap most everything and start again, as we had structured things so badly, it was an even bigger job to put it right.

So please don’t start off on the wrong foot like we did and feel free to read the 11.000 word article starting below and then visit our Teachable site… to find out how things truly operate (don’t worry, there’s a lot of free material there).

Would you try rock climbing without knowing how the safety gear worked and expect to survive? Certainly not, so why should learning a new skill be any different? This is why we think it’s important to learn the basics before diving headfirst into any kind of online business.

Somebody clever once said to me, “If your Blog isn’t making money, it’s a hobby”… and he was dead right. While not everyone wants to monetise their Blog, the choice is yours, but we think you should seriously think about getting some return for all the hard work you’re putting in so…

We want to make it easy for you to explore your options before committing to one specific method of making money online, which is why we’ve compiled roughly a thousand video lessons covering most aspects of digital online marketing, including Blogging, and made the first video lesson in each course available for free.

Section 1: What Does It Take to Be a Top Blogger?  

No matter what you end up doing, working online is a fantastic opportunity and a great way to enjoy more freedom and potentially higher earnings. 

If you work online, that means you can work from anywhere in the world, that you can set your own pace to work at and that you can choose your own salary. 

But while working online is always great, there are a lot of different forms that this can take many different forms, and not all of them are created equal. In other words, some online businesses are more profitable and more enjoyable than others and if you’re working to provide a service such as web design,  

If you’re doing copywriting or coding, then essentially you won’t be doing anything all that different  from working for an employer. 

Clients mean deadlines, and they’re essentially very similar to bosses! 

And then there are those hustles that you can get into online. Things like selling  waysways, they represent the very best of both worlds, and they’re an ideal choice for those looking to earn money quickly. 

But let’s face it, these business models don’t have all that much ambition attached. Selling an ebook is not exactly changing the world, especially if it’s not even an  ebook that you made yourself! What’s more, is that selling ebooks isn’t going to  get you all that rich. 

There’s definitely a cutoff point at which these “get rich quick” schemes stop  being profitable. There’s a ceiling that limits how much you can earn, and it’s also  not particularly exciting or rewarding. 

To be honest, a lot of people who make money online using these sorts of methods  aren’t all that likely to actually believe in the products they sell. Essentially, this  feels like scamming people in order to make money, which isn’t a great feeling. 

This is why I firmly believe that becoming a top blogger is THE best way to earn a lot  of money online. In this post, I’ll be looking at what that entails and how you can get there. But first, let’s take a look at why blogging is the perfect way to make money online. 

The Reality of Blogging 

Firstly, being a top blogger means generating a passive income. You’ll have a website that will earn money for you, but you won’t need to put in a lot of daily work in order for that to happen. This isn’t like writing or  web design where you are getting paid for the time you put in. 

Here, you have done your work up front, and so you can kick back and relax while the money comes in from advertisements, digital product sales, and sponsors. 

That’s not to say that there’s no ongoing work mind you; you will still need to write the occasional blog post and do some promotion – it’s just that it’s up to you how  and when you do this. 

And the best part is that this is a highly rewarding way to work and make money  online. You’ll find that you don’t dread doing it because you’ll be writing about a  topic that you really enjoy and you’ll be doing things that you’re really proud of. 

Imagine if your day’s work involved stopping off at a coffee shop somewhere, getting yourself a nice hot drink, and then leaning back in your chair while you type up an article on a subject you find fascinating. 

Then there’s the fans and the adulation. Being a top blogger is effectively like being a celebrity: people will read what you write, and they’ll leave comments and respond. 

It’s an amazing feeling when you write a post that you’re really proud of and that  you poured your heart into, and then you get emails from people who read it and  found it fascinating. 

It’s an even better feeling when you stumble onto a forum where people  are discussing your ideas or recommending your posts! 

You’ll be an authority on the niche, and you’ll get to spend all your time  reading and writing about it! 

And the potential earnings for a top blogger are huge. Really, the only limit is your  ambition. 

Take a look at someone like Pat Flynn, Tim Ferriss, or Mario Popova, and you’ll  see that you can become really very wealthy from a big blog by selling products,  working with sponsors, or even just from Google AdSense. 

What’s more, a blog can serve as a platform for something else. This can be a tool that you use to become a published author, to get your own TV show, or to launch another business. That might sound unbelievable, but I’m absolutely serious! 

Just take a look at someone like Aaron Marino (Alpha M), who started out with a  style blog and now runs his own line of men’s grooming products! 

I can also attest to this myself. I have a (fairly) big blog and, thanks to that, I got  contacted by a large YouTube channel and asked to make videos with them. 

I now get sent expensive electronic gadgets to review and get to keep them, while  the videos I make for them get hundreds of thousands of views on the first day! 

I even got a book contract and am currently on my way to becoming a published  author. 

Being a big blogger is an entirely different thing from other forms of making  money online. It’s a chance to get rich, yes, but also to get famous for doing  something you love, to make a big difference in a given community or niche, and  generally to do something that actually matters. 

If you like the sound of that and you think the blogging lifestyle is for you, then keep  reading. This book is going to show you how to make it happen and we’re going to  go to some completely different places than most other books on this subject…
