The Truth About Blogging 

Here’s the truth about 6-figure blogging: While blogging can be automated (eventually), you shouldn’t expect income to be passive from the get-go. You’ll have to work at it, especially when you are launching your blog and building a platform that you want to be recognized in your market.

When I first started blogging I was spending 30-50 hours a month creating content, converting visitors into email subscribers, and selling products and services (none of which I created myself – I focused entirely on affiliate marketing. More on that later). 

While I eventually outsourced most of my content to skilled writers, I still spend time evaluating advertising options, reviewing products that I can promote, building my mailing list and creating ad campaigns to boost traffic and keep my blogs in the forefront. While you can delegate many tasks to a team, such as content creation and even marketing, you will want to be directly involved in the initial building phase. This is your brand, after all. 

You need to make sure every piece of content has your voice, carries your message and represents your business in the best possible way.

The 5-Step Formula

While there are countless reports and articles that overcomplicated the
process of making money with blogging, here’s a basic overview of how
it’s done:

1: Create a blog and register a memorable domain. Avoid remotely
hosted options. You need to be in full control of your website so you
can take advantage of all the different revenue options with no
limitations (or other people’s advertisements).

2: Write (or outsource) killer content that will generate traffic and drive
visitors in. This content needs to be extremely high-quality, targeted
and informative. All meat, no veggies.

3: Convert your visitors into email subscribers so you can build your
list. A newsletter is key in building a successful blog online. Scratch
that; a newsletter is essential to be successful in nearly ANY market
online. You will never make as much money without one.

4: Communicate with those subscribers regularly so your lists don’t run
cold. Build rapport and trust. Nurture relationships with your market.
This is where you can build a recognized brand as an authority in your
market and set yourself apart from the competition (especially those
bloggers who aren’t doing this!).

5: Sell products and services to your audience via your blog and
through your newly cultivated newsletter.
Sounds easy enough, right? It is. But it will take time. Let’s dig into each
of these steps a bit deeper so you better understand how it works.
