How to Make Money With Zero Site Traffic

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_03_16_how-to-start-a-profitable-blog-from-scratch_ (2)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!giphy

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 shit 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 ass 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 do however have a program that’s currently in beta launch mode which someone recently told me that I was a scam artist for charging $$$ for a beta program. 

Looks to me like the true scam artist are those bloggers with a ton of traffic, selling newbie bloggers courses on making money with affiliate links, ads, or sponsored post. (Which is kind of impossible without site traffic – these “big name bloggers” know that!)

If I’m offering a realistic solution for newbie bloggers to actually make a consistent income, then it’s going to be a price paid for my hard work and their problem being solved. (Beta program or not!)

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 ideal client.

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 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!

giphy (1)With that being said, we only want to offer your high ticket 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 everyone and their moma, we’re only going to market it to 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 blogging 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!

Let me know in the comments below all the things you’ve tried doing to make money as a blogger that didn’t really work for you?

How To Be Extremely Productive & Get More Done Each Day

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_09_08_how-to-be-extremely-productive-get-more-done-each-day_

Today, I’m going to lay out my entire game plan for you guys and then, I’m going to show you exactly how you can do the same exact thing.

I used to be one of those people who thought I had my entire life together that I didn’t need a planner or set schedule until one day, I realized that my life was in complete chaos. Well, not complete chaos, but I wasn’t getting really anything done. 

I was trying to juggle so many task at once that I just got overwhelmed thinking about it, which resulted in me doing hardly anything to move towards my goals.

The day I realized that my life was all over the place, I didn’t want to put myself or my business through it anymore. So, I sat down and started looking for planners on Pinterest. I must’ve looked at about 50 planners or workbooks and some of them were inspiring but none of them was exactly what I needed.

Finally, I said the heck with it and created the perfect planner/schedule for myself. Here’s a look at what the average day for me is like:

Wake up at 7, make coffee, eat breakfast – As soon as I wake up, I head towards the kitchen to make coffee. Without coffee, I will be a walking, talking zombie for the entire day. Normally while the coffee is brewing, I’ll have a snack. If I eat too heavy in the morning, I’ll feel stuffed and lazy for half the day and I always try to start my day off great so it can continue throughout the entire day.

Walking, work day job, relax –  Even though I work remotely, I still consider it a day job. With that being said, I reserve walking for the mornings of my off days which normally totals out to be around 4-5 miles weekly. If it’s a normal work day, I like to take a few hours to relax as soon as I get off work. Relaxation time for me means…taking a mid-day shower, watching Netflix, pinning on Pinterest, running errands or eating a snack.

Work on business, read, prepare for next day – Usually, when it’s time for me to work on UYS, I already have planned out exactly what needs to be done for the day so I’m not sitting in front of the computer completely clueless and procrastinating. When I’m done working on UYS task, I prepare for the next day by setting all my alarms and adding any extra last minute task to the schedule. Once I’m in bed for the night, I try to end the day with continuing to read whichever book I’m working my way through at the moment. Key word is “try”.

After scheduling out everything day by day, I realized that my assumed “busy” life, is actually pretty manageable. I work in IT remotely for 8 hrs a day so I don’t have to get dressed for work (thank God), and then I spend about 2-4 hrs working on my business in the afternoon.

So, you really want to know how I have the time to run 2 blogs, 2 Pinterest accounts, 2 Instagram accounts, 1 Youtube channel, & work an 8 hour day job?

The key is to plan, plan, plan. Schedule out even the slightest detail of your day and stick to it. Here’s a couple of things you can do to be your most productive self every single day:

  • Kick procrastination to the curb. Time is extremely valuable, once you lose it you’ll never get it back. Recognize whatever it is that’s wasting your time, and kick it to the curb.
  • Set alarms for everything. Lets be honest, your phone is one you at least 90% of the day. Setting an alarm at least 30 mins before you have to start a task is the best way to hold yourself accountable.
  • Be realistic with yourself. You know what you’re capable of taking on, only place on your schedule what you know you’ll be able to do, otherwise it can become easy to get overwhelmed and not complete anything you set out to do.
  • Last but not least, grab the Extreme Productivity Workbook to start getting your life in order today.

Top 10 Oprah Quotes The Internet Can’t Get Enough Of

ten famous oprah quotes

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most richest and influential women in the United States with a net worth of over $3.1 billion. Need some motivation? Here’s Oprah Winfrey’s most empowering top 10 quotes that the internet cannot get enough of.

 

Top 10 Oprah Quotes The Internet Can’t Get Enough Of

 

Best/Great Oprah Quotes“When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.”

This really hits home for me. I’m constantly thinking my best isn’t good enough when it’s the best I can do. Because of this, I under value myself and it shows in my prices. This quote also reminds me of one of my other favorite things to say “know your worth and then add tax.”

 

“Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.”

One of the greatest set backs for many is thinking that they’ll have more time to do it later when there’s no way to know that for sure. What we do know for sure is that time is not promised to anyone. If you live each day like it’s your last, you’ll start to notice that you’re getting more done because you’ll be sure that you’re doing exactly what you want and need to do each day.

 

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

If you had everything you thought you wanted and needed, there will still come a time where you’ll want and need something else. I’m a strong believer in appreciating what you do have because that bring happiness. Even if you have a little, you’ll find joy in that and appreciate each stage in your life along the way.

 

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.”

This is one of my favorite quotes by Oprah. Mainly because we’re all human, and life isn’t easy for anyone living an adult life. We all have to go through the fire and when we come out we’re either stronger or so burnt out we’re ready to throw in the towel. Don’t throw in the towel, stand tall and keep pushing you will see the light on the other end. Turn your wounds into wisdom!

 

“You can have it all. Just not all at once.”

Great quote! I never understood what this meant until I started writing my first book “The Key“. It’s impossible to give something your all when you’re also trying to give another thing your all. I had to make a decision to stop all of my other projects to finish writing and publishing my book. It wouldn’t have been my best if I didn’t do so. It is possible to have it all, just something that you have to work at one project at a time.

 

“Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.”

 

It’s a great feeling knowing that you did the right thing even when no one is watching. I make it my duty to do random acts of kindness daily. If you’re someone who doesn’t get out much like myself, Care2 Petitions is a great way to contribute to a great cause daily.

 

“One of the hardest things in life to learn are which bridges to cross and which bridges to burn.”

I wholeheartedly agree with Oprah on this one. You’ve got to find a balance between standing up for yourself and what you deserve, and just saving your fight for another day.

 

“Challenges are gifts that force us to search for a new center of gravity. Don’t fight them. Just find a new way to stand.”

This quote by Oprah has carried me through so many bumps in the road. It was my HP wallpaper for many months. When you face different challenges in life it can very easily seem like your stuck and there’s no way out when that’s actually not the case. There is a way out, it’s up. It reminds me of another favorite quote, “life doesn’t get easier, you get stronger.”

I hope you guys could take something from these 10 Great quotes by Opah Winfrey!

How To Create The Best Images For Your Website

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_06_01_how-to-create-the-best-images-for-your-website_After using almost every graphic design website out there, I just recently struck GOLD. If you’re not sure what a graphic design website is…in short, it is the answer to all your prayers regarding imagery for your website!

I’m going to be totally honest with you guys, I suck at photography. I don’t even know how some bloggers do it. If you handed me a professional camera I would literally just stare at it, and even if I knew how to operate it I’d still take a crappy looking picture. If you’re anything like me (a busy bee), then you’ve resulted to an easier alternative, like the use of a graphic design website with templates already made for you.

However, in the past few months I started to notice something quite interesting in the blogging community. There are a ton of bloggers using the same images, and if they’re not using the same images then their designs look extremely similar. If you’re deep in the blogging world, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I figured out what’s happening here, EVERYONE is using Canva and PicMonkey. There’s a ton of hype behind those two platforms and everyone new just seems to hop on the bandwagon.

However, I’ve never been the kind of person to follow trends. I love to stand out in a good way, and if you’re anything like me you do too!

I recently started using another platform to design the imagery for my website, PixTeller. And no, that is not an affiliate link. I come across cool new things and I like to share it with like minded individuals. This image was created with PixTellerI also noticed something really cool about PixTeller, that I haven’t found on any other platform which made me fall more in love with it. If you type in key words in the search bar, it will bring up A TON of templates for that key word.

For an example, in the image above I typed “business” in the search bar which then presented me with a bunch of cool/cute business savvy looking photos. By the way, all of their photos look extremely fresh. 

Here’s a few other cool things that I love about PixTeller :

  • the option to use it for FREE forever
  • 400+ fonts to choose from (this has always been a struggle for me but not anymore!)
  • live chat with the creators who respond within 25 mins
  • AMAZING images

Those are just a few things that I personally love about PixTeller. However, you can totally sign up for FREE and check it out for yourself.
