How I Made Money My First Month Blogging

How I Made Money My First Month Blogging

Every time I saw an Instagram post of some influencer in some tropical place, or on the mountain vacation of a lifetime.

I was that girl sitting by my phone snickering "I wish I could travel" out of pure jealousness that they were doing somethingI wanted to but couldn't.

I realized a few days before my one year marriage anniversary that I only get one life with my little family so I need to stop wasting time hating other peoples lives and figure out a way to make money how I want to. 

So one day after begging my husband to let me use his card to buy a blog, he finally let me.

He was right to be skeptical he had never heard of Pinterest, and wasn't blogging something that was popular in like 2004?

Plus every blogger was saying "It will take you years to make enough money to make it your full-time job".

As soon as I typed in the numbers to his Visa on Bluehost I knew I had to be successful. I couldn't waste our money we were poor newlyweds. However, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I had never designed a website, I didn't have money to pay anyone to do it, I also had no idea how to make money.

Within that first month I had made $300. 4 Months later I made enough to leave my stinky job behind and quit the corporate world for good. Now as I write this post I been making $9,000+ per month just a little over one year after quitting my job.

The number one question I get is how did I make money so quickly, and how can you make money so quickly with a blog.

Here is how I made money so quickly blogging.

IF YOU AREN'T ALREADY A BLOGGER HERE IS MY BEST ADVICE.

Have you ever uttered the words (or thought to yourself) "I am totally gonna do that" or "go there when I have money".

Or maybe you have just found yourself not going on a family vacation this summer, or not buying something because well?

You just cannot afford it.

I know first hand how it feels to live on a single income that is not large enough, and even two income that are STILL not large enough.

With a combination of my first hand experience, and tips I just couldn't go without sharing. I created something that will change your financial, and future blogging life.

I created 30 Days to Blog Success an e-book that will help you:

  • Learn how to turn your MINUTES of free time into thousands of dollars a month by blogging.

  • Teach you how to get your blog ready in minutes.

Oh and after today it will no longer be available so that I can work with the people who get it and help them.

Here Is How I Made Money My First Month Blogging:

   1.Good Solid Content

By good solid content I mean content like my How To Start A Blog or How To Increase Your Blog Traffic posts.

These posts contain information that a reader can actually take away. They learn something. I have realized people are much more  interested in content that teaches them something other than just content that gives them something to read.

I spent so much time before I started Smart and Simplistic researching. The information I learned along the way has made it easier for me to create solid content and attract readers. I recommend writing about something you have a lot of knowledge on if you want to make money from the start it makes the process much easier.

2. A Few Affiliates

Affiliate marketing is SOO important as a blogger. Not having or making enough money is so disappointing, especially when you so desperately want blogging to become your job.

I remember when I was un happy with my affiliate income. It was when I first first started my blog and I also worked a terrible job with a terrible boss. I so desperately wanted to quit to travel with my family. 

Then after hours and hours of research I finally figured out a method of affiliate marketing that worked. 

(thankfully now affiliate income brings me$4,000+ per month, so I quit that job and can now travel with my family)

Because I don't want you to struggle with affiliate marketing like I did I created something I know will help.

30 Days to Blog Success is an e-book I created to:

  • Give you my day-by-day guide to figuring out affiliate marketing and making money blogging.
  • Teach you the skills you need to start making a good income blogging in just one month.
  • Teach you how to stop doubting that you can become a successful blogger, and how to actually become one.
  • Give you the helpful hand you need by telling you exactly what to do every day with your blog to make money.
  • Learn how to successfully use affiliate marketing, Pinterest, and Facebook to make money blogging in just 30 Days.
  • Learn how to make money than you ever thought you could with a small audience.
  • Teach you how to create a practical side hustle that will allow you to shop and vacation like you have always dreamed of.

after today it will no longer be available so that I can work with the people who get it and help them.

If you aren't loving your current income, or your work I created a free 7-day email course to teach you how to start a profitable blog. If you want to join my free how to start a profitable blog email course here is what we go over in it:

  • Day 1: How to start a blog for beginners. (with a 50% off discount on your blog + a free .com just for my readers)
  • Day 2: How to install your first theme and create a free logo.
  • Day 3: Planning out your content.
  • Day 4: Monetizing your website as a beginner.
  • Day 5: Increasing your website's traffic to make more money.
  • Day 6: Planning out your long-term goals.
  • Day 7: Wrap up & Guide to follow for the future to maximize profit.

3. A Few Ads

Now this month I did not make much from advertising but that is okay. I do not plan to make ads my main source of income.

I am going to offer services, and write about what I am doing here on this blog. I do not want ads to take away from that so I only have two.

Whatever those bring in they bring in. I will eventually even remove them.

If your blog is full of advertisements it takes away from what you are saying and your products or content. You are getting paid because people are leaving your blog to go somewhere else. I don’t want that

4. Opt-In Freebies

I found that offering an opt-in freebie gets people to join your email list. The people who join your email list will return to your website time after time. Every time I sent out a newsletter people would click through and come back to my blog. That builds trust. those are the same people who bought things through my Amazon links or signed up for hosting through Bluehost.

However, you want to give away a freebie that is actually helpful and on topic. You do not want to giveaway just useless nothing, you don't want to give away a calendar of prettiest flower that month to a group of men looking for tips on building a car that won't make them opt-in. You want to help your readers so that they want to keep coming back.

5. Learning

Blogging is something that is nearly impossible to figure out all on your own, without hours of research, months of work, and tons of confusion.

You have to stay educated on blogging in order to be successful. Many of the most successful bloggers claim that constant reading, and learning is crucial to their ability to be successful. 

30 Days to Blog Success is a great way to figure out how you can create a sustainable blog income that will allow you to buy those things you used to put back, and go on trips you use to think you couldn't afford.

30 Days to Blog Success will teach you:

  • How to affiliate market like a six-figure blogger.
  • What to day-to-day on social media and Pinterest in order to run a successful blog.
  • How the heck bloggers become successful.
  • What you need to do to increase your blog traffic.
  • When it comes to branding what is important, and how to do it yourself for free.

After today it will no longer be available so that I can work with the people who get it and help them.
