Make Money Blogging In 2019

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2019_01_07_10-ways-to-make-money-blogging_ (1)You’ve been putting in the hard work every single day. Pinning on Pinterest, being engaged on Facebook and Instagram, writing quality content…but you still feel like you’re not making what you deserve. No worries, we can fix that.

Making money blogging is not something that’s far fetched, normal people like me are making it happen everyday and so can you. I bet you’re thinking, “how am I to get started if I have no clue what I’m doing or I’m a beginner at this?” No worries, we can fix that too.

Today I’m going to go over how you can make $100k+ per year as a blogger

(If you’re still wondering if this is possible for you, it absolutely is! If you believe in Santa Clause for 8 years, you can believe in your self for like 5 minutes.)

Last week I received a $1,348 from an affiliate through a blog post that I haven’t edited in months.

When it came through I was sitting next to my brother which I shared the news with. He was shocked, because he didn’t think blogging was something people actually made money from. If you’re still thinking about starting a blog in 2019, here’s a good place to start.

He honestly thought that I just sit and play around on the computer all day. His exact words were “how do you make money blogging?”

To be honest, it was so hard to sum it up into just one answer. Then I figured that he may not be the only one wondering “how do all of these people make money blogging?”

I used to sit online all day doing surveys and transcribing, which don’t get me wrong you can make money with those options. However, I knew I deserved more for my hard work and I believe that you do too!

So today, I’m going to give you legit ways you can make money blogging! If you already have an idea, you can check out actionable steps here.

Here is how to make $100,000+ per year online

>> JUST A HEADS UP: there are only 7 spots left open in the Six-Figure Sales Funnel for May, (this my course that teaches how to build your sales funnel, and my exact formula I use to make $10,000 per month blogging) and because there are a few spots left open I decided to offer 50% off for the last few of you who want to join the course making it only $19 the discount is auto applied at checkout.

A few times throughout this post I mention The Six-Figure Sales Funnel because I am super passionate about it, and it’s my way to truly help people not be confused like I was when I started my blog. The spots will probably fill up in the next few hours so if you are interested you can learn more / join the course by clicking here

If you enroll you will get immediate life-time access.

After the spots fill up I’ll remove this part from the post, and you won’t be able to join again until the next launch in June so if you are seeing this, there are still a few spots open.

This blog post gives some great guidance but not as much as I give in the video tutorials in my course.

(On to the juicy part of this post)

1. Start by setting realistic goals

At first, it will be hard setting goals about how much money you plan to make because you may not have anything to base your set amount off of. Just keep that in mind when you are getting started. Your goals will become more head on as you go.

When setting your initial goals earning $10,000+ a month when you have no products to sell and no followers may not be ideal. Starting small with $100-$500 is a good place to start.

My first month blogging goals were:

  • Earn: $100 I planned on using it to invest back into my site being that I spent $49 on hosting
  • Pinterest Followers: 100

Now my goals look much more like this:

  • Earn: $20,000 per month. Currently saving for a new home.
  • Schedule 100+ pins a day (using Tailwind once a week)
  • Write 1 Weekly Newsletter using MailChimp.
  • Grow my Pinterest Following 500 a month.

GOALS ARE SO IMPORTANT!

Thinking about the amount of money you want to make for the things you want in life makes it so much easier to want to wake up and work for your goals everyday.

Thinking about being able to create the freedom you deserve because of the blogging business you created started to pay off.

Start your own money making blog

Before you can make money blogging or online, you need to actually build a site right? Starting a blog or building a site can be a lot to take on. There is so much you need to know, and it can seem hard if you’re a one man show.

I get a lot of emails from people who want to start their own blogs or build their own site.

I figured the best way to answer all these questions would be to create a FREE ( did I mention it’s free?) 7 Day email course.

Which will teach you all of the basics on to completely kick-starting your money making blogging/online success.

I totally suggest taking it if you don’t already have a blog (or if you do already have a blog and want the advice) because I really want to help you live the life you and I both know you deserve. Here is a more detailed guide of what we go over in it!

  • Day 1: Finding your Niche
  • Day 2: Building your brand
  • Day 3: Deciding on your product
  • Day 4: How you’re going to deliver your product
  • Day 5: Building your posting schedule
  • Day 6: Starting and building your mailing list
  • Day 7: Describing a sales funnel (if you want the exact sales funnel myself and others have used to make a profit and up to $100,000+ per year, you can learn more here.)

2. Focus on one marketing platform

Currently, I focus on Pinterest being that it is my #1 source for traffic.

Side note: If you are new to blogging, but really want to increase the money you make blogging there are a few things that I recommend

Tailwind: Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduler I use daily.

With Tailwind you can find new things to pin by using group boards called Tribes, or searching within Tailwind.

By using Tailwind I have increased the amount of views I get on Pinterest drastically. Tailwind has changed my life. If you want to find out more you can sign up for a free tailwind account here.

3. I Make Most of My Money from my Sales Funnel

Having a sales funnel in place is SO important as a blogger. Not having or making enough money is so disappointing, especially when you so desperately want blogging to become your job like I did in the beginning.

For months I was unsatisfied with my income because I thought I didn’t need a sales funnel and I was making it out to be this impossible really hard thing to put in place.

After months of research and trial and error I finally figured out how to build a sales funnel and properly funnel people into it. This is KEY if you want to make money blogging.

The key to having a bomb sales funnel that works:

  • Knowing what your product is
  • Knowing who your audience is
  • Automation in place
  • Email list
  • Knowing how to target your audience
  • Knowing how and where and what times to post your products and opt-ins

If you want the specifics like:

  • What to send to your email list – exact scripting
  •  How and where and what times to post your products and opt-ins
  • How to funnel traffic into your sales funnel
  • How to pull money out of a small email list
  • How to grow your income to $100,000+ per year

Then I highly recommend taking my digital course The Six-Figure Sales Funnel which is currently available until the last 7 spots for May fill up, then I will take it down for a while to help the people who enroll start profitable blogs.

If you didn’t know The Six-Figure Sales Funnel is a course I created to:

  • Give you my exact break down on how to build your sales funnel and then get people into it like yesterday.

  • Teach you how to get people onto your mailing list.

  • Teach you how to pull money out of a small list because YES the money is in the list.

  • Teach you how to drive targeted traffic to your opt-ins.

  • Teach you how to learn who your audience is.

  • Teach you exactly when to send your sales emails and exactly what to say to make the sale.

Did I mention that: there are only 7 spots left open in The Six-Figure Sales Funnel for May, and the spots are 50% off for the last few of you who want to join the course making it only $19 and no worries, the code is auto applied at checkout.

After the spots fill up I’ll remove this part from the post, and you won’t be able to join again until the next launch in June so if you are seeing this, there are still a few spots open.

If you enroll you will get immediate life-time access.

Below are 10 avenues you can use to make money blogging or in your online business

Affiliate Links

Affiliate links are looked over all the time by digital entrepreneurs looking to monetize their business.

I’ve made tons of money over the years with affiliate links without really trying. I just kind of said “hey, here’s this really cool thing that has worked for me and maybe it’ll work for you too.”

Depending on which company you’re working with, you can profit thousands of dollars, I’ve seen it happen!

eBooks

eBooks are a great way to make money with your digital business. We are in the era of information, where there’s a lot of it floating around and it’s really easy to get. Why not become apart of that to leverage your income?

I’ve created a couple of eBooks one of which gained the audience of hundreds of readers. You can check them out here.

If you’ve been thinking about creating an eBook but you’re not exactly sure how, or where to start, click here to gain access to the free resource library containing the perfect guide that will walk you through the process step by step.

I use Shoptly and Kindle Direct to upload and sell all of my eBooks.

Virtual Assistant

Becoming a virtual assistant is one of the best ways to make money digitally. Especially if you’re someone who runs a blog being that you can market your services to your already engaged audience.

Many bloggers have become virtual assistants as a way to work in their field, gain flexibility, and still support themselves financially while building their business.

Even if you can’t find work as a virtual assistant, there’s a ton of WAH jobs out there just waiting for you to snatch them up. Check out 20 of them here.

Advertising

This is another major source that many people overlook when trying to monetize their blog.

For many bloggers, ads have become a main source of income. I will be realistic with you to give you some kind of idea on how much you can make and what you need to do to make a certain amount. In order to make anywhere from $800-$1600/month you would need to bring in around at least 100k page views per month.

I know that can seem like a lot however, if you check out this article on how to gain thousands of viewers through Pinterest in a couple of days, you’ll be there in no time!

Promotion

One of the main things I absolutely love about Instagram and Youtube, is that there’s promo everywhere!

It’s a win-win for both parties, the company gains exposure, popularity, and sales from referrals while the blogger earns actual cash from the company.

It’s an exchange process.

Normally how it works is either a company will reach out to you or you’ll reach out to a company to market/review their product to your audience in exchange for profit.

Passive Income

>>> DON’T FORGET there are only 7 spots left open in The Six-Figure Sales Funnel for May, and the spots are 50% off. The code is auto applied at checkout.

After the spots fill up I’ll remove this part from the post, and you won’t be able to join again until the next launch in June.

If you enroll you will get immediate life-time access.

Passive income, means literally to make money in your sleep. This is the ultimate goal for most people.

If you’re someone whose wanting to some day wake up to random deposits in your account that you can actually live off of, working towards passive income is what you want to do.

This can be done  in many different ways. A great example would be creating a course or or workshop similar to these.

You want your content to be something that your viewers can access and gain from year-round. A great example would be this article. I published it almost a year ago, however I’m still profiting from it today.

The amazing part about passive income is that you get to choose what you want to create and then profit from your own creation.

Online Store

I’ve seen many bloggers attach an online store to their blog. It’s almost as if it’s expected for bloggers to have some kind of store or “shop” tab within their blog.

What you choose to sell within that store is totally up to you.

I’ve known others to make thousands of dollars off drop shipping alone, and then sell a course on how others can do the same.

Freelance

Recently, there’s been a plethora of bloggers and just overall digital content creators turning to freelancing as a source of full time income.

I myself have freelanced in the past and I still do some freelance work occasionally.

It is not wrong to use your audience to market your services. With them being already primed with your personality type and way of life, they are more susceptible to trust you with their money in exchange for your services.

Amazing platforms that others have seen major profit from within the freelance community are Fiverr and Upwork.

Paid Memberships 

Paid memberships, are something that many bloggers don’t think about doing.

For an example, when you’re paying $9/month for Netflix to continue steaming amazing tv shows every week it doesn’t seem like much right? It’s way cheaper than cable and you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck.

On the flip side, imagine 1,000,000 people using Netflix all paying the same $9/month fee, well that’s $9,000,000/month for one company!

You can take that same concept and apply it to your blog! Actually, I hope that you do!

Donations

Depending on what kind of blog you’re running and what kind of community you’ve built, it may be perfectly okay to ask for donations.

If you’re someone like me who doesn’t like to be too pushy, just leave a “donate” link at the end of each article or create a specific page where your audience can go to donate.

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.

I would love to know what you’ve done in the past that may or may not have worked for you.

6 Tips For Success Online

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_08_27_6-tips-for-success-online_

The fact that you’re reading this blog post say’s a lot about your character. You’re someone whose willing to do the leg work to get to where you want to be online and I can respect you for that.

Before I unload this amazing list of extremely helpful tips on you, I want you to know and remember something important. Whenever you’re feeling like you can’t succeed digitally please remember this next paragraph…

It is 2018, exactly 20 years ago the world wide web was created and it has advanced into the most powerful tool in the world today. There is NO reason why you should not become successful online. All of the tools for you to succeed exist (& here’s a secret, if you’re willing to dig around long enough, you can find all the tools online for FREE. Anything that anyone is selling online is out there for free if you’re willing to look hard enough for it.) 

Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s jump right into these MAJOR tips for your success online:

Have a Purpose

You may not know what your purpose in life is, but as an online business owner what you should know for sure is the purpose of your website/blog. I cannot stress this enough which is why it’s number one on the list.

If you don’t know the purpose of your website/blog and you start to build your audience, it is very likely that majority of the content you present to them wont be tailored specifically for them. If this is the case, your engagement will suffer.

I highly suggest finding the purpose of your website/blog first and the rest will follow.

Have a Strategy

All of the top dogs have a clear strategy. I personally suffered with this for half a year when I first started UYS. Everyday, I would just wake up and wing it and eventually I found myself getting frustrated. I would sit in front of the computer for hours completely uninspired.

With a bomb strategy in place, you hit the ground running! Every single day, I know exactly what I should be working on.

You’ll be much more productive with a strategy than without one.

This is the #1 thing majority of suffering online entrepreneurs are missing. VALUABLE CONSISTENT CONTENT! (I myself still struggle with being consistent from time to time.)

They focus on the sale more often then the value of the actual content.

Have you ever came across an extremely boring looking blog or site and the owner is making a full-time income off their business? I can guarantee you 100% that the content they’re producing is valuable and consistent.

Focus on the value and consistency of your content and the funds will follow.

Most entrepreneurs gain fast success online by being present every-single-day! Remind your audience everyday that you’re still here rooting for them and to help.

Have a Marketing Strategy

This may seem like a no brainer to some, but a lot of digital entrepreneurs (especially beginners) don’t have any kind of marketing strategy in place and even worse, they’re not using SEO. 

If you’re someone who has yet to put a marketing strategy in place, I highly encourage you to check out the Six Figure Sales Funnel Course! It is short, sweet, and to the point. There’s a killer sales funnel included that others have used to make six figures a year! (I myself have used the exact same sales funnel to make a profit & gain 100+ email subscribers in 2 weeks)

If you’re looking to turn your success online into a full-time job, you need a marketing strategy!

Focus on the Numbers

Most people don’t like numbers, I used to be like most people until I learned something really cool about numbers that I’m going to share with you today…

If you start to like numbers, they’ll start to like you back. I hated dealing with numbers all the way up until I built UYS. If I wanted UYS to be successful I needed to focus on the facts and there’s no easier way to do that than focusing on analytics.

It doesn’t matter how many platforms you’re using to run your digital business, (fyi, wordpress is the best place to start.) you need track your analytics to see how you’re doing daily, weekly, and on a monthly basis. The numbers don’t lie!

Educate Yourself

This is another one that some may think is a no brainer but it’s actually pretty common for online entrepreneurs to give up after the 6 month mark. One of the main reasons is because there’s no more inspiration or creativity left.

When we come up with cool, new and creative idea’s, our brain is pulling it from something that we’ve already seen, read, or tried before.

If you’re not constantly exposing yourself to new cool things, your brain will run out of things to pull from. (In other words, the well will run dry.)

It is said that most successful business owners read about 40 books a year, and most successful bloggers read new articles weekly!

If you haven’t been educating yourself as much lately, I challenge you to learn something new related to your success online daily!

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_07_28_7-day-blog-money-making-guide_Why I created the 7-DAY money making guide:

A year ago, I had no idea what I was doing with Unlocking Your Success. My ideas, thoughts, and goals were all over the place.

And to make matters worse, I actually expected to make a profit because I was working so hard.

I later found out that just because I was working hard, doesn’t mean that I was doing the right things or working smart.

It took me 8 months to finally start making a profit from blogging and when I finally figured out everything that needed to be done in order to make things happen, I realized that it wasn’t so hard after all.

I know how frustrating it can be to read other bloggers income reports and wonder how the hell are they bringing in 5-figures each month, I created a guide for people like you and me who are damn tired of bloggers posting income reports with watered down guides of how they actually do it.

What’s inside the FREE 7-DAY GUIDE?

This guide is beginner friendly. With that being said it’s extremely easy to follow and very detailed.

I totally suggest implementing it if you don’t already have a blog (or if you do already have a blog and want the advice) because I really want to help you live the life you and I both know you deserve.

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!
