Welcome to Blog Income Boot Camp! In this course, I'm going to walk you through what you need to know to master the art of affiliate marketing, along with some other ways to earn money as a blogger. These are the exact strategies that I used to take my blog from Zero to earn over 5 figures in the first year.
I'm a visual learner so many of the lessons include video tutorials (in addition to the text) to help you understand it better. The course is broken down into 6 modules:
- Rules and Legal Stuff
- What is Affiliate Marketing
- How to Find and Apply to Affiliate Programs
- How to Promote Affiliate Links
- Strategies to Boost Conversions
- Beyond Affiliate Marketing - Other Ways to Earn
A little about me:
I was medically retired (early) from the military in 2011 and really struggled with finding a job after the service. My medical issues kept getting in the way of me working a regular 9-5 job and I was trying to figure out how to continue to provide for my kids (I'm a single mom). I had bought a house before I knew I was being retired early so keeping my home was a big concern.
I didn't even know what a blog was until I came across a Pinterest pin (of all places) that talked about earning money with a blog (and from Pinterest). I was so intrigued! I began reading as much as I could in hopes that this could be the answer I was looking for to my money troubles.
I started my first blog around 2 1/2 years ago and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. After much trial and error (and taking a few really expensive courses), I finally understood where I went wrong. When I launched my second blog, I got it right from the start and managed to earn over 5 figures by the end of the first year!
Blogging has providing me the freedom to actually spend time with my kids. I didn't get a lot of that while I was still serving in the military. It has also forced me to challenge myself into learning things I never thought I could learn. I've never taken any formal courses on web design or anything like that. I've learned all of this blogging stuff from following other bloggers.
I do want to make sure you understand - earning money from your blog is not going to happen overnight!! You may read other bloggers' posts about making tons of money in the first month. That may or may not be true. What I do know is that it takes time to build a loyal and interested audience - which is what you need to covert your links to sales. Some niches ARE easier to earn from more quickly than others. But regardless, you CAN earn a living as a blogger with affiliate marketing and other methods that I'll cover in this course.
Enjoy the course!
