Ever wondered how to start a blog and make enough money to quit your job?
You can do it. Tons of people already have.
Want definitive proof?
The blog you’re reading right now gets over 2,436,100 unique visitors a year and generates well over a million dollars in annual revenue.
Just look at my revenue stats for a 30 day period:
$381,772 a month is a lot of money… especially for a blog. Now you aren’t going to generate that much money, but it is realistic for you to make 1/100th of what I am making.
That’s why I’m going to show you how to make $3817 a month.
Making $300,000 per month is REALLY hard. Making $3000 per month is a lot easier.
And for most folks, an extra $3000 per month would change their life.
So, yes. Blocks of text and a handful of images can generate life-changing amounts of money.
Want to know something else?
I started from the same place you’re at right now. The only difference between you and me is that I’ve already been doing this for a decade.
Look, I stumbled a LOT along the way. Fell flat on my face. Had tons of terrible ideas.
This guide shows you how to avoid the same mistakes I did. Not only will your path be easier, you’ll get there a lot quicker.
Let’s dive in.
Your 2-minute quickstart cheat sheet
Looking for a barebones, quickstart guide to get started as fast as possible? In this section, we won’t cover everything, only the essential steps.
First, you need an idea and a name for your blog.
From there, head to Bluehost and sign up for the Basic Plan. It’s $2.95 per month if you sign up for three years in advance—I highly recommend it to get the best deal.
Next, follow the instructions to set up your account. Skip all the package extras except for domain privacy + protection. The extra privacy is worth the investment.
Finish setting up your account, and now you officially have your own little piece of the internet. Congrats!
But, don’t celebrate too hard just yet—we’re not quite finished. From there, you need to:
- Install WordPress (your blogging platform)
- Choose and install a cheap/affordable theme
- Customize your new theme
- Write and publish your first blog post
- Stick to a regular publishing schedule
After you have your first few posts under your belt and traffic starts to flow in, you can start thinking about how you want to make your first $1.
From selling ad space to digital/physical product offerings and affiliate marketing, there are dozens of monetization methods you can explore.
Now let’s go through the whole process in detail.
Step 1. Unleash ideas within you
If you want to create a blog, you don’t need a revolutionary idea. But, your blog should be focused on something specific.
Remember that no idea, no matter how good, is truly unique.
But, you have unique experiences. You have a distinct voice. And, you probably have a vibrant personality that will attract others, like your family and friends.
