Dear Newbie Blogger, does any of the following resonate with you?
1. You just started your blogging career.
Congrats, by the way! Blogging took Lauren and I from young professionals living every second for the weekend to making over $50,000 per month and traveling the world in our twenties! Most people never get started, so it’s awesome that you’ve made the first move!
2. You’re feeling excited and a bit nervous.
Maybe you recently published your first set of blog posts or took our Launch Your Blog Course. You're probably excited, nervous, and ready to make this whole “blogging” thing start working for you!
3. You want to make your first bit of money online but are feeling overwhelmed by the process.
You’re likely swimming up to your eyeballs in “how to make money blogging” posts, but are still lost of where to start and what works.
4. You hear words like “funnels,” “email marketing,” and “sponsored posts” but have no clue what those mean or how to get started using them.
You might be worried that there is so much information to learn that you’ll never be able to find what works for you.
5. You’re sick of working a regular job.
You know you want to quit, but don’t have 24 hours a day to work on your blog. You need fast strategies that can work with a life balance of a day job or possibly kiddos.
6. You’re unsure of how to what to sell to make money.
You weren't born “sales person” and don't intuitively just get how that process works. We get it. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a sales guru to make money online. Far from it.
Lauren and I went from right where you are now to…
TWO GROWN ADULTS JUMPING UP AND DOWN LIKE OVERGROWN CHILDREN IN THE LIVING ROOM
I, Alex, remember it like it was yesterday.
Lauren and I had just launched our brand new strategy and we were looking at our first $172.82 in blogging income (from affiliate sales).
Amazon Associates: $85.62
Clickbank Marketplace: $87.20
While other bloggers might not think of that as much, that first income meant the world to us.
$10 a day is an extra $300 per month. That equates to gas, groceries, and possibly an electricity bill if it’s not the middle of summer in Texas.
From October 2015 – December 2015, after 4 months of blogging, we had made $0 from our blog and were getting discouraged. In fact, it was only a few months before that when we started our first blog that failed miserably.
Because we had no help or guidance, Lauren and I just had to wing it based on the jumbled amount of free information (95% of which completely wasted our time) that we found online.
Crazy enough, Lauren and I had just figured out the first piece of the puzzle that eventually led us to becoming six-figure bloggers.
The $173 we ended up making in January of 2016 was shockingly life-altering.
It let us know that this whole “make money blogging” thing was fo’ real.
Even more crazy was what happened next…
Our income started doubling EVERY MONTH.
In February, we made $924 (a 525% increase!)
This was the month that I accidently stumbled on how to build a really bad version of an email “trust funnel” and it actually worked!
We started to sell other people’s products (through affiliate marketing) every single day - consistently.
We would wake up every morning, hop out of bed, and run to check the affiliate marketplace we were using to check for new sales. And most days, we were making sales overnight while we were sleeping!
But it didn’t stop there…
In March, we made $2,353 (that’s $28,236 per year blogging!)
95% of this income all came from free traffic sources and affiliate marketing.
What happened??? Why was everything growing so quickly for you guys?
Well, the short answer is that we learned a few skills and were just beginning to figure out how to put them together properly.
The longer answer is...
1. We learned how to get free traffic to our blog using social media.
We started to become the masters of Pinterest and driving organic traffic to our website.
2. We started pairing other people’s successful products with this free traffic.
We began the process of sharing products we liked to our audience (also called affiliate marketing).
3. We quickly figured out why 99% of people suck at affiliate marketing.
Like, really suck. Most of the articles we read online are pretty lame and unhelpful. They basically tell people to just throw links all over their website and pray the sales fall from the sky. Big shocker – that doesn’t work very well.
4. We learned how to sell affiliate products consistently with an automated system.
This led to passive income on our blog, which was crucial for us to continue growing. Because we could set things and forget them, we could focus more on creating content.
5. It was from selling these products and learning this process that set us up for amazing future success.
We didn’t realize it at the time, but because selling affiliate products was no easy task, we learned how to sell pretty much anything online. It was the main reason we have been able to take two separate blogs to over $20,000 per month profit each - on average.
Please take a second to imagine a world where...
You are making your first $1,000/month from your blog.
Take a moment to imagine how that kind of money would impact your life. Like seriously, just pause for a second.
That’s an extra $12,000 per year.
You start your blogging career off with a HOT START!
You’re sizzling… you’re hot to touch… you’re on fire!
A fast start helps you build momentum and success breeds success. You don’t waste your time anymore trying to be a professional “value hunter” on the internet and get results FAST.
You are building the foundation for your blog to grow and eventually THRIVE.
These are the lessons you need to understand not only how to take your blog to $1,000 per month quickly but also to $10,000 per month and BEYOND.
You have built a list of raving fans and subscribers - on autopilot.
These people open your emails, talk about you in community groups, and love the products you recommend. They follow your blogging journey eagerly and share your posts.
The best part is, this happens automatically without a ton of additional work.
You learn all of this and more from six-figure bloggers who don’t just blog about blogging.
Our first six-figure blog, Avocadu.com, is a health and wellness blog that has made over $200,000 this year already. No, we don’t just blog about blogging.
This is why our information WORKS.
It’s not just fluff to build up your ego, it’s results-based information that can change your life.
And we WANT to change your life…
It’s now your turn to make your first $1,000/month from your blog!
"I just started making money through my blog for the first time.
IS THIS REAL LIFE???
This is proof Lauren and Alex KNOW what they are talking about!
Their "Basic Trust Funnel Email Template" is worth the price of the whole course. I would have paid DOUBLE the price for the course for what you get on Day 5 in the template."
