The Two Resources That You NEED To Make Money As a New Blogger!
I am here to assure you that you CAN make money from your blog! That you CAN be successful at this, and that it WON’T take you months and months to make money!
And it doesn’t require lots of resources! I have made money on my blog using the information provided in only TWO amazing resources!
The ecourse that got me started!
The first resource that taught me how to make money from my blog was an ecourse. It is a course created by Suzi Whitford from Start a Mom Blog. If you haven’t met Suzi yet, you are going to love her! She is super sweet, and an awesome mom who is trying to help others to create and monetize their own blogs!
This ecourse teaches you everything from starting your blog to making money on your blog. By the time you have finished the course you will:
Have a beautiful blog
You will have learned how to get traffic to your blog
You will know how to make money from your blog!
The course contains:
step by step tutorial videos
35 free stock images!
Suzi will also teach you how to edit pictures in the course as well!
It is an excellent resource for a very reasonable price!
And, (as if that’s not enough awesomeness) Suzi also gives you the option to add on a personal video review of your blog!
Yes, you heard me right! A personal review of your blog!
After you complete the course, Suzi will go through your blog and create a video sharing her recommendations for how you can improve and optimize your blog!
The review was the selling point for me when I bought the course. I mean, the whole course was awesome, but before I purchased it I didn’t know that! As a new blogger I really wanted someone experienced to look through my blog to catch any mistakes. Suzi was so helpful! And after sending me the video, she helped me with any questions that I had in implementing her suggestions.
Suzi’s blog review really gave me the confidence and help that I needed to make my blog presentable and to increase traffic.
Trust me, this is definitely a resource that you NEED as a new blogger!
Resource number 2: The ebook that made me hundreds of dollars almost immediately!
No, I am not exaggerating! Within a month and a half of implementing the lessons taught in this book I made hundreds of dollars! And it was only my third month blogging! I’m also confident that if I had had this book a month earlier, I would have made that much money in my second month.
The ebook is written by Victoria Pruett from A Modern Homestead.
Victoria starts by showing you how to get yourself and your blog ready to make money. This is very helpful, and between Suzi’s course and this book I was able to get my site exactly where it needed to be!
Next, Victoria shares all of the income sources that you can pursue based on the size of your blog. So, do you only have a thousand page views per month? No problem, you can make money! Do you have a hundred thousand page views per month? Then there is additional ways for you to make money! It doesn’t matter how big or small your blog is, this book is for you!
Also, she will teach you how to reach out to companies for sponsorship opportunities as well as help you decide what to charge. This has been huge for me! I was so nervous to do this until Victoria laid it all out. She taught me exactly what I needed to do! And it was sooo easy! It doesn’t matter how big your blog is, you can make money from this!
And, last but not least, Victoria will teach you how to keep your blog profitable for years to come!
I honestly don’t even know where my blog would be if I hadn’t used these resources! Probably still at less than a thousand page views per month and making only a couple of dollars!
