I'm looking for feedback on blogging in this new year.
I love blogging and have found success with it. It is my number one recommendation to any newbie online looking to build a passive income.
The formula is very simple. And the steps are easy to understand.
1 - Pick a profitable niche you are passionate about.
2 - Build your own self-hosted blog site.
3 - Fully optimize your blog for email marketing.
4 - Publish in-depth articles for your niche audience.
5 - Work daily to build up the traffic flow.
6 - Improve conversions and user-experience as you grow.
7 - Focus on building your subscribers list.
8 - Survey your list to learn what they actually need.
9 - Follow up and build rapport with your list.
10 - Solve specific problems and sell your products or affiliate products.
11 - Be consistent with what actually works.
If I were to put successful blogging in simple steps, this is it.
It's not rocket science, and anybody can build a profitable niche blog. Of course, not everyone will, and that is because not everyone wants it bad enough to put in the necessary work consistently.
Blogging is an investment. It is now a legit business model. If you are looking to get-rich-quick with blogging, you are already starting on the wrong foot and you are not going to make it far. But, if you are ambitiously lazy, and want to build a passive income, blogging is where it's at.
It does take time and effort to build an income with a niche blog - just like with any other business online or offline. It is all well worth it at the end, trust me. Be smart and build your online assets. This is the real way to build a passive income using the power of the internet, in my honest opinion. And it does not take a lot of money to start.
Running your own blog online also gives you tremendous authority in your niche. You can recommend tools and products with more confidence when you are a well-established blogger.
What are you thoughts on blogging?
I'd love to hear what you think of this method to build an online income and live the dot com lifestyle.
Thank you so much!
