My Blogging Story
If you want to learn how to make money blogging you are in the right place. I have been teaching people how to make money blogging for some time now and the process of learning this skill is super easy.
My recommendation before you start your blog is to find your niche! When, I started blogging some time ago I didn’t even know what I wanted to write and share about with the world.
It took me some time to get it done and finally decided to go with affiliate marketing and teaching others how to start a blog and make money online.
It’s also important to find a mentor who helps you get the initial part of this blogging journey and grab you by the hand just like I did in the past with Wealthy Affiliates and up to this date, I still do.
How Much Money Can You Make Blogging?
The income that you could make blogging to be honest is unlimited but, it does take some time for the content to rank. Unless you use paid advertising and promote your content using Facebook, Bing ads, Google Ads, etc just like I learned with Wealthy Affiliates.
To reach a substantial good amount of money from your blog is not imposible at all. I was in your shoes at one point of my life trying to grow this blog and monetize it. It took some time but, it’s totally worth it.
So with all that in mind there is no limit for the amount of money you could make blogging! I have seen people inside of Wealthy Affiliate making thousands a day.
Here is at least one example of a success story.
Now here are some good information on how to be successful blogging and keep in mind that you don’t have to be perfect at all. All you have to do is start.
Truth Bomb #1: You don’t have to be a great writer.
As you can see in this blog post, I’m sure you will find different mistakes with spelling maybe missing commas and so on. Your focus is not finding perfection to start! Your goal should be just start!
Just take action and let the content and your strategies do the rest for you.
Now, once you get some money coming to your blog then hire a writer to do the content for you if you want to have some more time for yourself and focus on the strategy for your blog and maybe writing is not your “thing.”
I do both! I write some content like this one and I also hire writers and I tell them what I want so they could deliver for me and that way my strategy for this blog stay on track.
The success will come! All you have to do one more time is just start!
Truth Bomb #2: You don’t have to be an “expert” on your topic.
When it comes to become an expert on any topic is not necessary because, in this days we have so many options and access to content that is insane. Most of us know a very good friend called “Google” the biggest search engine in the world.
When I try to write about a topic I just find other articles around the same topic and use that as I guide (I don’t copy content) and create my own “BETTER” version of that same content. As you can see is not that complicated at all and you don’t have too scared of not knowing what to write about.
Also you don’t have to worry about any new ideas because, if you really like your niche and you really love the niche, just right about it and be you!
For me affiliate marketing is my niche and blogging are my niches and I really love to write about these two. Plus, I love to help people make money online and also show my audience that not everything is a scam online. There are legit ways to make money like Wealthy Affiliates and other things like this FREE Training that I created on how to make money using Facebook ads.
Truth Bomb #3: It (usually) takes some time to make money blogging.
This is extremely important to know because, for some people this is very frustrating! Creating a blog and monetizing the blog takes some time unless you run paid ads. But, it could take at least some months until you start getting traffic from search engines and you start monetizing your blog.
But, once the traffic start coming from search engines is a “DONE” deal because, content is something that stays forever working for you 24/7.
Something you write today, it will stay forever and more and more people will find you content each day once you have the traffic coming to your blog.
That’s exactly what happened to me when I started this blog and it took some time to get my traffic but, now is paying me each day! I’m glad, I never quit with my dream of having my own blog and start making money from it.
This blog and your blog once you start is something you “OWN” and no one have rules over your website “Asset” and you have full control. Is not like Facebook and other social media that maybe you created a profile or a group and what would happen if Facebook decides to close their social media platform?
Your content will be vanished forever!
Now with a blog like this one. No one has control over my content and it can’t be shutdown unless, I quit and that will never happen!
Trust me blogging is very lucrative and once you have the right tools, community and sponsor to help you there is not way you could fail. With Wealthy Affiliates you have all you need from a community, tools like Jaaxy to find the right keywords, and training.
Truth Bomb #4: Blogging is not easy — it takes a lot of work.
I kind of cover this above but, I want to reinforce this and it really takes a lot of work to make your blog successful but, is not impossible at all. All you need is dedication and the strive to get it done.
The reason why is because, it takes time to get everything done from scratch like getting the domain, hosting, SEO, and write a lots of content. Just start and keep it going!
Truth Bomb #5: It’s not about you, it’s about the reader.
Now this is a good one! Look how I write this article sharing my experience with my blog but, my goal here is not about me and it’s all about you reading this and to help you start your own blog.
Here I’m sharing my struggles so you don’t have to go thru them at all or at least know what’s coming to you and you have a better idea on how to start and make your own blog profitable faster than mine.
Make sure your content is all about your audience and show them the way to improve their life, learn more about what you have to write and the most important one is that, just be you. When I write my content, I focus on my audience and I’m me all the time. I write just like, I’m talking to a friend or family member on each of my content.
Make sure your content is full of value and focus on your audience at least 80% of the time.
Truth Bomb #6: You need a plan if you want to succeed.
Plan your way for your blog to be successful and there is a step by step process and full support with Wealthy Affiliates. This is essential for your blog to take it to the next level.
My plan in the beginning was just to write a blog and I had no plan in the beginning. But, after a month of writing with no goal and switching from one niche to another I finally came up with my plan to stay focused with one niche and one blog only for at least the first year.
I really suggest you to have a plan but, make sure you don’t look for perfection to start! Just start and plan this out as you go and stick to it.
The Top 4 Ways to Make Money Blogging.
- Advertising – This is the fastest way to get some traffic to your blog and maybe start monetizing by sending readers to your blog maybe using Facebook Ads, Google, Bing or native advertising.
- Affiliate Marketing – This is what, I’m currently doing right now with this blog. I’m writing content and help people start but, at the same time, I do have affiliate links inside my blog and make money from those links once people buy or sign up for an offer that I have in this blog. You should do the same once you start creating your own content.
- Digital Products – This way of making money with your blog is by creating your own digital products or promoting other digital products in your blog related to your niche. The best part of promoting digital products is that there is not inventory to worry about. Digital products are always available and they could be delivered super fast to your leads or audience.
- Services – This are things that you have created or know about. For example if you are a coach, you could create content for your audience and let your audience know that you do provide coaching services and make a profit out of that. At least for me I do provide coaching for those who want to start their own blog one on one or send them to Wealthy Affiliates who are also a premium training about blogging and affiliate marketing; that is exactly how I started some time ago (Wealthy Affiliates)
