How To Make Money With Your Blog From Anywhere in the World

george-addair-2

So, I was talking to really close friend today, and she really wants to CHANGE, as in…her

job..her house…her location and someone who knows her work background gave her a game-changing thought…

 

Do you want to know what it was? I mean, to REALLY rock her world…to REALLY figure out

where to begin?

 

It was something so SIMPLE, you might not think of it, or even worse..

 

It was to do this one simple task: offer a service online and scale it up!
Okay, I hear ya…you may not think that is so earth-shattering, but have you ever been

completely overwhelmed as in feeling like you are WAY in over your head?

 

Maybe you’re going through a divorce, or you just REALLY need a job-change like my friend?

 

What if?

 

You could change your LIFE and work ANYWHERE in the world..and I mean anywhere in the world

that you have an internet connection?

 

Would that be life-changing for you? It would for most folks…and it was for me, because that is exactly

what I’m able to do and I thank God that I can.

 

I want you to have this kind of freedom too!

 

If I could whisper in your ear, I would say this…..

 

“Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming!”

Don’t you dare give up!  If you think you can, you can!

 

If you like to blog at all whatsoever, you should, and you should start right now.

 

What is so awesome about blogging?  There are no rules about time or place.

 

You can blog anytime or any place you are, like right now…we’re trying to sell our house and my

husband’s job is moving further north, so for right now, we are temporarily living in an apartment with

a few things from home.  Right now, we “set-up” house and I’m using my iPhone as a “hot spot” so I

can work from home.  I LOVE being able to go wherever.

 

In between running back and forth to the washing machine/dryer, grabbing a bowl of cereal for a

quick supper, and watching old reruns of Little House on the Prairie, I’m writing this to you…

 

That’s what I love about the internet lifestyle.  It is the freedom to work at 7:00 am or 7 pm, like it

is now.  Wouldn’t you rather work on your clock, than someone else’s?

 

Now, I have been working on my journey online since 2009 when I was newly single after a 25 year-

old- marriage ended abruptly and in a way your nightmares couldn’t imagine…but GOD!

 

I found God in a new way that I had not known before, and I want you to know that Jesus Christ is

real, and if you are reading this and are desperate, know this, hang your hat on it and tell yourself over

and over one of God’s promises that kept me sane in those dark days, “Jesus said, I will never leave

you nor forsake you.”  People will come and go out of your life your entire life, but once you’ve invited

Him in, He never will.  You can bank on it.  That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

 

And that brings me to my next point, you can be yourself online.  You can brand yourself, and be as

unique as you are.  You are gifted and talented in ways you can’t even imagine.  Just think about a

starfish.  There are no two alike.  That’s how unique you are as well.  So, don’t overthink and

overanalyze and “get ready to get ready.”

 

Start tonight.  Start when you’re doing the laundry and waiting on the dryer

to stop.  Start when you’re at Starbucks and having a latte or mocha.  Start on your lunch break and

type your heart out for 30 minutes.  You can change YOUR world in just a few minutes a day.  How?

 

Because you’re building a business and that takes a journey.  Your journey will be different than

everyone else’s online.

 

Why not You? Why not Now?

 

Plus, you don’t have to be a “me-too” kind-of-a-blog.  Be yourself and brand

yourself the way you’ve always dreamed.

 

Use others’  blog for pure downright inspiration, but be your own brand.

 

What is it that excited you?  What draws you?  Then, build a blog around that and build a subscriber

list and attract people who LIKE the same things you do.  It works. It flat out works.

 

Now, I know you want to know how to make money with your blog.  I have been a part-time blogger

for some time, but recently decided that I would spend more time on my blog to reach a larger

audience.

 

And I’m TOTALLY stoked about it!  Enthusiasm is a light to your blogging and financial fire. Feed it!

 

Find those graphics, sayings, and bloggers that you think are “all that” and study their success, so you

can follow.  You don’t have to copy them.  Just learn from them and study hard.

 

I love what Will Smith said in one of his movies, “Don’t let ANYONE tell you that you can’t fulfill your

dreams you can’t, not even me.”  Don’t let anyone set your agenda.  You are your own woman, or your

own man.  Forge your own path.  Build your own dream, and never let go of it.  Hold on to it with both

mental fists and don’t let defeat, someone else’s opinion of what you’re doing, or your OWN brain

think you out of it.  Be unstoppable.  Write down a specific goal.

 

Now, I’ve studied a lot of self-improvement in the form of books/videos and blogs in the last few years

to improve my mindset to believe I could..and it worked.  I now truly believe that what your mind can

conceive, you can achieve.

 

One exercise that has worked for so many successful people is this:

 

Imagine that you are ALREADY where you want to be.  What does that dream day look like?

What are you wearing? What are you doing? What are you blogging? What are you saying on your

cell phone? How much money are you making from your blog?  I know, I know, this all sounds

a bit “woo-woo,” but it works if you combine it with hard work and lots of action…consistently!

 

Do you want to make $10,000 a month? Then work your way backwards.

 

How many products would you have to sell to make $10K a month?

If you made an affiliate sales of $5 an item for a dress, or a toy, it would like this:

2000 x $5 = $10,000

1000 x $10 – $10,000

100 x $100 = $10,000

 

So, now it’s looking better and easier at the same time.  If you can find a product, (or down the road

create a new product), that pays you $100 a sale, you would only have to sell 100 courses or

services to make $10,000 a month.

 

I make my income from two ways:

#1  Affiliate marketing – sending product recommendations to my subscribers through email

newsletters.

$2  Creating quick guides that teach some helpful principles of making money online.

 

#1 You can go to Fiverr.com and hire someone to put up your WordPress site.  The blogger platform is

great, but you can’t really go as far as you like to until you get a self-hosted WordPress blog.

 

#2 Get an autoresponder.  I have used Aweber for years and made thousands of dollars emailing my

list.

but I’ve also found one recently that is more geared for bloggers called MadMimi that I absolutely love.  

You can find that here, and sign up for a free account.

 

I now create courses that help to solve a problem.  But I started (and still do), will affiliate marketing.

 

If you’re new to this an “affiliate” is someone who promoted other people’s products.  You can simply

sign up and get your link from the company.

 

You don’t have to talk to anyone.

You simple fill out a form and then get your link.

 

I started with Clickbank which is virtual instantly downloadable ebooks, and then branched out to

promoting physical products on Amazon, which some people love to do that.  If you do that, I would

suggest that you pick a niche, and then a sub-niche, such as:

 

Niche: Toys

Subniche – Sponge Bob Toys only

 

 

Do this every single day and you should start to see success.  Be sure at the end of every post to leave

what we call a “call to action” so that they sign up to your newsletter.

I use Leadpages.  I LOVE Leadpages.

Just get it started.

 

Your second biggest tip is to build a subscriber list!

 

With that in mind, please take a moment and sign up to my newsletter so that you don’t miss any

goodies on this blog (wink, wink).

 

Until next time – Kristie

What your Moma didn’t tell you about Clickfunnels CAN hurt

you…because it is one of the most in-depth sites I’ve ever seen for

building sales pages, hosting webinars, and good ‘ol optin pages to build

your subscriber list.

 

I also use SumoMe for some of my sites, but Clickfunnels has its own set

of assets that for the price can’t be beat. The basic package is

$97/month, but as you can see in this income shot, it does pay for itself.

 

When I launch a new product or service, I count on Clickfunnels to do

all the “techie” and professional design details, and I love it.

It does have a bit of a learning curve, but the Customer Support will take

you by the hand to make sure you jump any techie hurdles. I’m a Baby

Boomer, and if I can do it, I feel assured you can too.

Clickfunnels? Is that hmmmm like Funnel Cake?

This particular sales funnel sold 26,187 books in 30 days for Russell Brunson.

 

You may or may not have heard of Clickfunnels…I heard about it about

a year ago..and wondered what all the fuss was really about? =).

 

But fast forward to right now, and I LOVE Clickfunnels. In fact, I’ve

been getting emails this week about the owner, Russell, being featured

on the TV Show “The Profit.” Pretty impressive!

But, what does this mean for you and me as a bloggers and internet

marketers? It means that we can use professional-looking graphics

without paying expensive graphic designers’ fees, which you are boot-

strapping your blog, or any type of internet business, that’s a pretty

sweet deal.

 

When did my life change from dreading my cell phone to ring at 9 or 10

PM every night to working from my laptop from wherever I happen to

be? Using an autoresponder in combination with Clickfunnels to ask for

emails and build a subscriber list. Simple. That’s it.

They offer a 14-Day Trial period click here, that is so totally worth it.

That gives you a chance to try it out and see it in action.  My biggest tip

is NOT to get overwhelmed.  Start with one type of funnel such as the

Opt-In to build your first list of subscribers.

 

Then, when you get stuck or in techie overwhelm, hit the conversation

cloud and someone will answer you pretty quickly.  The one reason I’ve

stuck with Clickfunnels over some of the other lead pages builders is

because their customer service.  They WILL answer you and figure out

your problem, and if you disappear from their site before they do, they

will email and follow-up with you to make sure you found a solution to

your problem.  In fact, I’ve gotten to know some of them so well, that

they are like “online friends.” They’re friendly, helpful and won’t leave

you stranded and world-class customer support like that is rare.

 

So, how can YOU use this to make money with your blog or your offline

business.  How can YOU advertise your offers?

 

You can have to build a list of subscribers.

 

So, let’s talk about that first step, shall we?

 

Here’s a screenshot inside to build your first Clickfunnel funnel to ask for your visitor’s emails:

Let’s pause a moment, and make sure you have an autoresponder to

connect this to…I use Aweber and you can get a Free Trial here.

Next, just add your own text and giveaway information. You can add a

download page..just go through the tutorials within Clickfunnels on how

to add your Free Guide or Free Ebook in exchange for your visitor’s

email. Simple!

 

You’ll love Clickfunnels…it’s sort of like a new pair of shoes. You have to

WEAR them, before they feel “just right.” So, don’t get in overwhelm.

Keep plugging away until you get your Clickfunnels optin page just like

you like it (short and sweet)..and then share it on Pinterest. You’ll be

surprised how fast your list of subscribers will grow. I did this and

within 7 days, I had a list of 300 people!
