“How can I make money with my blog?” is a question I get over and over again.
You may be stuck at your cubicle right now and looking for a way out. Blogging seems to be the doorway to passive income and freedom, but you don’t know where to start.
Or you have been blogging for a while and developed a small audience, but you don’t know how to scale up and make your first dollar online.
“Start blogging and they will come.”
You’ve heard it before, the biggest myth on the Internet. They will not come unless you make them.

But you didn’t know how. You got overwhelmed after you researched ‘blogging tips’ on Google. SEO is too technical. WordPress is too technical. I am not a designer. I am not on social media. I don’t know any bloggers. I cannot manage multiple different social media networks. I cannot blog every day.
Excuses pile up. There must be a shortcut!
And then you might have come across ads on the Web selling blueprints on how to get rich on the Internet quickly. You didn’t want to go through the grind of writing posts every day, reaching out (what if you get rejected?), and learning SEO; rather, you bought into the ‘get rich quickly on the Internet’ myth. But there is no free lunch.
You might have watched a 60-minute video from a guru who spoke to you just right at the time, pushing your emotional buttons with a well written sales copy. You set up an affiliate marketing landing page and bought Facebook ads, but nothing happened. You gave up.
Yet, you keep hearing on the news abut these pro bloggers and social media influencers, who were just like you when they got started, and today they work from home, travel around the world, and live a happy Internet lifestyle.
And they get the spotlight: media features them, companies hire them as consultants, and brands want to work with them. They attract wealth. But…
