Check out how to make money blogging with little to no traffic by only implementing 3 simple but powerful steps. 3 Powerful Steps to Make Money Blogging Starting From Scratch #bloggingforbusiness #makemoneyblogging

Okay guys, I’ve been pondering on the thought of writing this post for a while now because it is a touchy topic and a lot of people get offensive – especially if they make money off the very fact that they have a ton of traffic to their site monthly.

The conversation always goes a little like this with those people…you tell them “you can make money as a blogger without a lot of site traffic.” they say “it’s not possible because that is the only way I’ve been able to make money.”

And here’s what I say to that…”people can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you, you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period” Oh yeah, I’m going there!Make money blogging -Blogging for Business - How to make money blogging - How to make money from a blog

Here’s a little back story on me, I started my blog 2 years ago as a hobby. Nothing serious and I honestly didn’t even think I would get this far which is still mind blowing to me.

For a really long time, I didn’t make any money. Then, after joining a few courses…buying a few info products here…going to a few webinars there…and downloading a crap ton of freebies…I started making money (nothing consistent) but it was way more than I did before which was nothing. I was making a decent part time income. However, it took me a long time to get there and here’s why…

Everyone and their mama was pushing affiliate links and ads. No one (and I really mean NO ONE) had a step by step guide or strategy to help newbie bloggers who had pretty much been working their butt off to get traffic so that they had the volume to start making real money. Here’s a shocker (not really) – you need a crap load of traffic for affiliate links or ads to start making consistent money.

If you’re a new blogger, you probably don’t have the traffic needed to make a consistent income with affiliate links, ads, or even a course…unless, you go another route.

Imagine a world where bloggers didn’t  have to make money off of ads or sponsored post…

That world totally exist. As a beginner at anything, it’s so easy to get sucked into the rabbit hole of doing what everyone else tells you to do because as a beginner, you really don’t know anything.

As a blogger who has went through the beginner “struggle phase” I’m not going to sell you a course on how to make money with sponsored post, affiliate links, or ads because honestly, it’s pretty much impossible without the needed traffic coming to your site.

Side note: I go way more in depth on topics similar to this inside the Free Unlock Your Biz community. 

I’m all about offering realistic solutions for newbie bloggers to actually make a consistent income.

So, let’s get on to the actual solution shall we…

How to make a consistent income with zero traffic

***WARNING***  This strategy is only for those who are serious about making money as a newbie blogger and are willing to do the work!

Is it easy in the beginning…no. But nothing worth having comes easy! It’s a lot of heavy work in the beginning but then later turns into a snow ball effect.

Get crystal clear on the problem that you solve. You cannot (I repeat) YOU CANNOT make a consistent income without knowing the exact problem you are solving for your target audience.

When there’s a problem at hand, there’s a pain point attached to it and people will pay just about anything to make their pain go away – hence, why specialized doctors get paid millions.

Target market research – do some deep digging in FB groups, on pinterest, on google, youtube or anywhere else you can find. Look for people having the problem that you have a solution to. Is it a lot of people (like millions) or is it a few?

That brings me to my next point…become so specialized in what  you do that there’s pretty much no one out there (or very few people) that do exactly what you do. This creates scarcity and will give you the valid reason to charge high prices because it will place you in high demand.

Create one product/program/ or service – pack it down with value that will get your ideal customer results. Make sure it has been proven to get results either by you or someone else.

Sell, sell, sell – sell that one product/service/program over and over and over again. Repackage it into another product. (for an example: if you wrote an eBook on cooking, repackage it into a course and sell it again)

You’re only going to be selling this to people who need what you have to offer and who will get results.

Getting specific people to pay you their hard earned money

Lets face it, people are very protective over their hard earned money…rightfully so!

Make money blogging -Blogging for Business - How to make money blogging - How to make money from a blogWith that being said, we only want to offer your product/service to people who need what you have to offer and who you’re almost certain will get results.

Instead of marketing your product to serve everyone and their moma, we’re only going to create it for specific people through transactional content. If you want a little more insight into what transactional content is, check out this free roadmap HERE. (I promise you it will get you on the right track ASAP!)

How to flip your first $5k or $10K

The reason I chose the specific price points of $5k and $10K is because those numbers tend to be what people initially need to make to quit their job. (It can totally fluctuate depending on your situation) Once you’ve made a comfortable amount of money to quit your job…something that’s going to give you enough cushion to take a breather for a bit…there needs to be system put in place to continue bringing in that $5k, $10k or more.

This is the point at which you can start running ads, doing sponsored post to pull in more traffic, and even posting affiliate links if that’s your thing.

You don’t have to run ads, but at this point in your business, there needs to be some automated system put in place to bring you consistent targeted traffic so that you can continue making your $5k or $10k months.

A few examples could be: Pinterest automated posting or ads, a facebook group, Weekly IG lives or ads, monthly collaborations…something!

How to SEO a Blog Post and Website

Tired of pouring your heart and soul into your website, writing valuable content and hearing crickets?

No worries, you’re in the right place. I’m going to help you go from hearing crickets to having a community of raving fans so that you can start making the income you know you deserve and start truly living the “laptop lifestyle”.

There’s truly only three key things you need to know and learn to master SEO:

  • How to niche down effectively
  • Keyword and key phrase research
  • How to write 2,000+ word articles that keep your audience informed and engaged

If you’re wanting to boost your website ranking in search results across the board, SEO is the way to go. Actually, to increase your ranking in search results, it is vital! If you’re not sure what exactly SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is as of yet, here is the textbook definition:

Search Engine Optimization:

The process of increasing the number of visitors to a website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.

To sum things up for you, it makes your website closer to the top of the page which means more views and clicks for you.

If you knew you could learn one skill that would in return help you generate thousands of traffic and would later result in thousands of dollars so that you could start living out your “laptop lifestyle”…wouldn’t you want to learn that skill?

Just a heads up in case you’re interested: 

Right now, my powerful SEO course on how to attract your target audience, 10X your traffic and blog income in the next 90 days is 75% off. I wont be offering it for much longer so if you’re really serious about growing your traffic, head on over there now and snag this amazing deal!

 

The Before Math

Before looking into SEO and how you can increase your traffic, we want to make sure the people that are viewing your content actually need what you’re offering, otherwise all of your hard work would be done in vain and I don’t want that for you.

All it takes is a bit of quick target market research to be sure you’re targeting the right people with your content.

When targeting the right people, search engine optimization will not only become a lot easier for you but you’ll find that it’s also a lot easier to monetize your blog too because then you’d have a target audience full of people who need what you have to offer and are willing to buy.

I bet you’re now wondering “perfect, how do I do the market research”.

It’s pretty simple. There are many different ways to conduct target market research but the easiest way to find out what content you should be creating to attract the right kind of people to you is to simply ask them.

You would be surprised how many people would be willing to openly tell you what they’d like to see on your blog. Compile a list and use that list to pull from whenever you’re creating content.

Now that you know for sure you are creating content that your audience wants and needs…it’s time to dig into search engine optimization so that you can start attracting them to you in droves by the thousands.

Think, thousands of raving fans looking to you as the “go to” person!

This is the most powerful part because it’s what allowed me to make over $10,000 alone in the last few months.

Search engine optimization basics:

The most important tip everyone should know when it comes to search engine optimization and how to make it work for you is to learn the power of keywords and key phrases.

When I say “key words” and “key phrases” I mean little pieces of gold. It’s the basis of how search engines (yep including Google) organizes each piece of content. Once you master using the right keywords within the right context, it’s only a matter of time before your website lands first page.

There’s many different ways to find key words that work for you and your niche, the first step is putting yourself inside your target audiences shoes. If you were them, what would you be typing into Google?

Think of different words and phrases your target audience would use or questions they would ask and then use that to attract them.

If you want specifics like:

  • Where do I look for my target audience to ask them questions
  • What specific questions do I ask them to get the answers I need
  • How do I know if a keyword will perform well
  • In what context should I be using the keyword/phrase for it to perform it’s best

Then I highly recommend taking my course Search Engine Optimization 101, which is currently available for 75% off. Enrollment wont stay open for long being that I have to take it down soon to help those who have already enrolled.

If you were completely in the dark about it till now, Search Engine Optimization 101, is a course I created to:

  • Give you my day to day guide on exactly how I do powerful market research to attract my target audience to me on a regular basis
  • Teach you everything you need to know about search engine optimization
  • Teach you exactly how/where to find powerful keywords/phrases
  • Teach you exactly how to structure your post so that your audience see’s it’s value so that you’re able to help them by selling to them

Sharing this with you because I just don’t want you to miss out…I always get a ton of emails after I close a course and this one is powerful! With this special link, I’m offering 75% off to those who read my blog. There’s no code needed. 

How many Keywords or phrases do I use on one page?

The sky is the limit. Of course, there’s a right and a wrong way to go about this which we will dig deep into.

Now, I’m not saying to go and plaster a lot of words that mean the same thing into one post or on one page to rank in search engines.

The algorithm will eventually pick up on that especially if the keywords/phrases are not related to the actual content.

You want to use as many related key words and phrases as possible in a way that it fits into the content of your article or website copy.

The best way to go about this is to use long tailed key phrases: instead of a simple keyword, a long tailed key phrase is more than one word put together to either almost or fully form a sentence.

Again, we want to put ourselves in our target audiences shoes. Imagine what they’re typing into Google and use it as inspiration. (This is why doing market research the right way is so important.)

Example of a long tailed key phrase: “How to rank first page in Google”

I go way more in depth with you on this in Search Engine Optimization 101 so that you’re completely in the loop about what to do and what not to do. I’ve saved hundreds of bloggers from years of trial and error.

I’m super passionate about this because I was there at one point and I completely understand what it’s like to feel like you’re doing everything right but at the same time still feel like you’re not doing enough.

It can be super discouraging and I want to be the bringer of good news! There’s another way for you, an easier way.

Do I need an SEO Plugin?

This might trigger some people but no. I know a lot of bloggers will read this and cringe a little bit but the truth is, with or without an SEO plugin, with the right strategy you can rank in the same amount of time.

I’m sharing this from a place of love. I’ve had many clients express to me that they’ve tried everything to gain traffic and then they go on to say “I even installed Yoast SEO”. It’s not harming your traffic but it’s not making much of a difference either.

The same goes for any SEO plugin. Myself and many of my clients are living proof that you don’t need a plugin to boost your ranking. In fact, I don’t suggest it…because you can gain so much more powerful results with only a simple system put in place once staying consistent.

My strategies are based on what Google 100% tells us works.

How long does it take to rank first page?

How long does it take to rank first page on Google is the most famous question I’ve received from those who enroll in Search Engine Optimization 101 and I love answering this question because it allows me to help you set realistic expectations.

It takes Google between four days and six weeks to crawl (or index) a new site. There are a few people who have claimed their site has been indexed in less than four days but the average time period is around four days to six weeks.

Once Google crawls your site, you’ll then be searchable through the search engine. This means that you’ll be in the results but may not be on the first page just yet. Once your SEO results start to truly kick in, it’s averaged at about four to six months before you’ll start ranking first page.

This is all assuming you’ve found your flow and started implementing SEO effectively on your site and blog post.

What to do if SEO seems overwhelming?

If you just started studying search engine optimization or you’ve been working with it for a while…I completely understand how it can seem overwhelming.

A quick reminder: I was there!

For an entire year, I avoided search engine optimization like the plague. It confused me and every time I sat down to try and figure it out I got confused even more.

After many months of trial and error I found a simple strategy that has worked for many of my clients and myself included.

I designed Search Engine Optimization 101 so that the only overwhelming feeling you might get is how you’re going to organize all of your amazing content ideas that are 100% certain to rank high in search engines once published…and even then, I created an organizational system for that!

The offer will be expiring soon!

What to takeaway from this:

Anyone can learn how to make search engine optimization work for them. I’m not special, I truly mean that. I have helped so many people from so many backgrounds grow and monetize their blog so I know first hand that YOU CAN TOO!

When I first started, it was from absolute scratch with zero experience. I had no idea what I was doing and now I secure $8,000 – $10,000 each month with my blog.

I say this not to brag but to show you that it’s possible for you too!
