Get great potential earnings for a top blogger. The only limit is your ambition.
And the list goes on.

Becoming an Authority Blogger is a highly rewarding way to work and earn money online.

Blogging for money, yes we said it.

How to make money Blogging?
We are often asked how to make money blogging so want in this course to lay out some necessary steps that we see most bloggers who earn a living from blogging go over.

Here is how to make money starting a blog.

  1. Set up your blog
  2. Start creating useful content
  3. Get off your blog and start finding readers
  4. Build engagement with the readers that come
  5. Start making money from the readership you have by one or more of a mixture of income streams

Sounds easy, doesn’t it! On some levels the method is simple – but you need to know up front that there’s a lot of each step and below we are going to give you some pointers on each.

Here is how to make money starting a blog.

1. Start a Blog
To make money blogging, you’re going to need to have one. While this is pretty clear, it is also a stumbling block for various Blogging Beginners who come to the idea of blogging with limited or no technical background.

If that’s you – don’t worry! It was our story too, and most bloggers start out feeling a little overwhelmed by the process of starting their blog.

2. Create Useful Content
A blog is never a blog without content, so once you’ve set it up, you need to focus your attention on creating valuable content. What you choose to create will depend a little on the subject that you decide to write about (most successful bloggers have some of their focus to their blogging whether that be a niche or a demographic that they write for).

The key to creating content is to have it as useful as possible. Focus upon creating content that changes people’s lives in any way will be the type of material that people will value the most and it will encourage people to know, like and trust you, which is essential if you later want to make money from your blog.

3. Leave your blog and start finding readers
As you create the most valuable content that you possibly can, it is easy to get very insular with your focus and waste most of your time looking at building your blog. Several bloggers have a ‘build it, and they will come comprehension’ with their blogging, but this is a bit of a trap.

If you need to make money from your blog, you need to not only focus on building a magnificent blog, but it is also necessary to get off your blog and to begin promoting it.

There are many ways to experiment with building your blog’s audience, but it is essential to enter into all these strategies remembering that you should not just be searching for ‘traffic’ but ‘readers’.

Start by thinking strictly about the type of reader you’d like to have read your blog. You might want to design an avatar of that reader (sometimes called a reader profile or persona) to help you work out who you’re trying to attract.

Once you know who you’re hoping to have read your blog, ask yourself where that type of person might already be hanging out online. Begin to list where they might be gathering:

Are they reading specific blogs? List the top 3
Are they participating in particular forums? List the top 3
Are they listening to podcasts? List the top 3
Are they engaging in particular social networks? List the top 3
Which accounts are they following on each of these social networks? List the top 3

Each of these places that you readers might already be gathering has opportunities to develop a presence whether that be by leaving good comments, offering to create guest posts or just by being helpful and answering questions.

With such a list of blogs, focus, podcasts, social media accounts in hand you will have some good places to begin to hang out and create value.

The core is to build authority, to add value, to foster relationships – not to engage in spammy practices.

4. Engage with the readers that come
With a maintained focus on creating extraordinary content and finding readers, you’ll start noticing more people visiting your blog and engaging with the content.

At this point, you will need to turn your focus to engaging with your audience and building a community.

Respond to reader's comments, reach out to them and do everything that you can to keep them coming back again and again.

Look after your readers well, and you’ll find they spread the word of your blog for you and support make your blog even more widely read.

Having an engaged reader is also much easier to make money from.

5. Begin making money from the readership you have using one or more of a diversity of income streams
OK – the first four steps of beginning a blog, creating content, finding readers and building engagement with those readers are important foundations that you do need to get in place before you can build long-term income for your blog.

There’s no doubt that what we’ve covered is a lot of work though if you do it well, you’ll be setting yourself up properly and giving yourself every opportunity of being able to make money from your blog.

With these foundations in place, you’re now set to start attempting to make money from your blog, but you do need to be conscious that just because you have set up your blog, have content and have engaged readers that the money won’t just automatically flow.

It takes continued work and experimentation to make money from your blog.

To make it easy to learn about the best methods for becoming a Top Blogger, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide that will teach you exactly how to do it.

Who this course is for:
  • You have noticed some online home businesses are more successful and more fun than others, and you’re struggling to determine which one to join.
  • You’re struggling with selling eBooks or promoting someone else’s eBook as an affiliate.
  • You make strenuous efforts to get away from bosses, or even from Clients with deadlines, which is pretty much similar or even worse than bosses!

Once you know your niche and your target audience, you should be starting to get a feel for what your blog is. This is what will now motivate your brand.

Creating Your Brand

This is a good time for us to discuss how you go about creating your top blog. We just discussed the importance of creating something that is every bit as professional as your inspiration for your logo. Now it’s time to take the same approach to creating your own website.

Building a Top Blog

Okay, so now we’re going to talk a bit more about the interesting stuff – the differentiating factors that will help you to become a top blogger rather than just… a blogger.

Creating a Personal Brand

Now you have your blog and your brand and you know the kind of personality that you want to portray. Everything is in place for you to start filling your site and your social media accounts with content.

Creating Content

If you want to be a successful blogger, then you should highly consider becoming a successful blogger. This is absolutely one of the most effective ways to help people discover your brand, to communicate with them what you’re all about and even to make sales.


Unfortunately, blogging is not as simple as ‘build it and they will come’ (although regularly posting on Instagram and on YouTube will help this!).

Promoting Your Blog and Videos

After all this work, you’ll probably find you want to start earning some profit. If you’re going to make blogging your full-time job and really ‘live the dream’ then this is really pretty crucial.
