The truth about how people make money with blogs

MiniGuide 7: Make Money Blogging:  The Blog Profits Cheatsheet

Make money blogging. Exciting.Is it really possible to make money with a blog?

Yes, my friend, you most certainly can make money with a blog. As a matter of fact, there are thousands of people around the world who are not only earning a living by blogging, but some of them are making a small fortune.

But before you get too excited, hoping to create a blog today and quit your day job tomorrow, there are a few things you should first keep in mind…

1 Blogging is a four letter word…

While yes, many of the blogs we stumble upon are for the most part, total sh*t, that’s not the four letter word I’m referring to. I’m talking about this one: Work. 

Blogging can be work. Coming up with ideas, writing articles, creating or locating images, spreading the word… these tasks can sometimes be tedious and tiresome.

And while it certainly isn’t digging ditches in the rain, the bottom line is this: Blogging isn’t always easy or fun.

Can you handle that? If not, you should just stop right here.

But if you’re not afraid of little hard work…

If you have a knack for painting pictures with words. Or if you like to create, share and publish, then this could be a profitable path for you. And if you follow the suggestions I give you in my Blog Profits Cheatsheet (more below), your work will seem more like play. Well, at least some of the time.

And speaking of time…

2 It takes time…

To do all of these things I mentioned above. And it takes time to build up a loyal following, and to get quality incoming links and traffic to your blog.

If you want to make a lot of money ASAP from your blogging, the best time to start is three years ago. The next best time to start is today.

But if you’re patient, persistent, and you apply some of what I share in Blog Profits, then the process and learning curve will be much smoother, with the income rewards not far behind.

And finally…

3 Don’t try to make money blogging…

WHAT!!??

Yes, you heard me right.

If your primary goal is to earn income from a blog, two important things to remember are:

  1. Try not to focus on making money online; and,
  2. Don’t label yourself simply as a “blogger.”

If you’re focusing on trying to make money, or you see yourself strictly as a “blogger,” the only thing you’ll be making is a big mistake.If you were to take this misguided approach, not only would you severely be limiting your options, but you’d also likely fail to do that one important thing which every successful entrepreneur and profitable business does so well: create value.

Money is a result, a natural byproduct of value creation…

If you focus on creating value, you’re thinking about how you can serve others. But if your primary concern is making money, you’re mostly thinking about yourself. This turns out to be is short-sighted recipe for disaster, not a long-term strategy for success. I explain this in greater detail in my…

“Blog Profits Cheatsheet”

This is a condensed summary of what I’ve learned about making money online these past 18 years. Just the important stuff. If I only had five to ten minutes to spend with a friend who needed my help, this is what I would tell him. (I know… only giving him a few minutes would make me a pretty lousy friend, but I think you get my point.)

For example, you’ll learn…

  • The single most important thing you need to do if you want to have a money-making web site.
  • The biggest reason why beginning bloggers fail when trying to monetize their web sites (and a simple way to prevent it).
  • How to create a blog that not only makes you money, but makes you happy at the same time.
  • My “Secret 7 Word Success Formula” I’ve been using for the past 9 years. OK, I know that sounds a bit cheesy — but it works. And when I remember to apply it, I find success nearly every time I create a new web site, product or business. And you will, too…
