First things first let’s address the myth that ‘no one reads blogs anymore’ since this couldn’t be further from the truth. Blogging is very much still an incredibly profitable industry and career choice so if you were having doubts on this advice from others, I hope that gives you peace of mind.
You can absolutely monetise your blog and make several figures monthly if you do it right. I am not saying this is easy or a quick process by any means but it is very possible with the right strategies, mindset and work from you.
it also doesn’t have to take years, like some people say. I believe with anything it’s all about where you put your focus and time and how quickly you can scale something when you have the right strategy and information to start with. I spend a lot of years and a lot of time with my attention in the wrong places, not focused in income producing tasks and a lot of time was wasted on small details that could have been figures out at a much later stage. But hey, we all have to start somewhere right and we learn along the way.
When you have the right tools, teachers and knowledge from the start you will be setup for success which is why I want to share a story with you from one of the best bloggers you can learn from as early as you can.
Please note some of the links in this email may be affiliate links meaning I will earn a commission if you decide to purchase any products or services, I always only promote things that I love and completely stand by.
I want to share with you the story of Michelle, a fellow blogger who I have been lucky to learn from recently. You might know her from her amazing blog Making Sense of Cents.
Michelle started out blogging in 2011 as a hobby, not expecting it to ever make money. It was a way of journaling her own personal story for herself which I think a lot of us can relate to. Fast-forward a few years later she was still blogging but now she decided to look into affiliate marketing.
That’s when everything changed.
She had skipped over this before because she thought her blog was too small but decided to give it a go anyway and saw her income increase month after month and now her blog regularly makes over $100,000 a month. (say whaaaaat)
The truth is, many bloggers and online influencers skip over affiliate marketing. They either think it’s too hard, that it’s a waste of time, that they will turn followers away, or that their followers just won’t be interested.
However, as Michelle always says: “if you’re not earning money through affiliate marketing, then you are leaving money on the table.”
Perhaps you’ve tried affiliate marketing in the past, but nothing seemed to work and now, you just feel like it’s not possible for you.
Trust me, I know how you feel. When I started out blogging, I shared about all the things I loved from clothes to beauty products and most of the time linked directly to the companies website because I was so clueless. I just wanted to help people find the best things for them.
Which is a lot of what affiliate marketing is, only now you need a strong strategy to implement and make recurring income that you can build up over time.
I had been reading Michelle’s blog for years already and so when I came across her course about how she makes 6-figures with affiliate marketing I was interested right away, I knew she was making a lot of money through blogging and I just wanted to find out her ways of doing it. I wanted to know the exact steps she took to create financial freedom for herself and how I can implement her teachings to do the same.
In short: I am so glad I purchased her course.
Michelle earns over $50,000 a month through affiliate marketing, and she shares all of her best tips in this course.
Within the course, there are 6 modules, over 30 lessons, over 20 worksheets, bonuses, an exclusive Facebook group and more. She goes through everything when it comes to affiliate marketing, such as:
You already know how I always only recommend things I truly love and stand by and this course is no exception. I really enjoyed learning from Michelle, the course was easy to follow and it is self-paced meaning you can go through one lesson, implement it and then continue to the next.
I still go back to the course now whenever I need to.
When I went through the course I realised that everyone needs a strong affiliate marketing strategy to really make this work for you, it’s not as simple as slapping affiliate links all over your website and hoping to make some money from them. You need to create a system and put some time and effort into your strategy and approach and then, that’s when you will start to see results.
If you have the budget for it I would say yes absolutely. Can you find the information online yourself? Only with hours and hours of skimming through articles trying to get the best information. I know a lot of people ask this before purchasing courses but for me, a course is about the whole package wrapped up and handed over to me. It’s the course creator’s trial and errors and years of experience figuring out the best strategies and sharing this with the rest of us. It saves you a ton of time and I think when you learn something you should learn from the best, right?

I promise you won’t regret it!
