This is our space to get real with you and share our best strategies for starting a blog, building an audience, and earning a full-time income online.
As we often do here, we’re first sharing what did NOT work out for us before we share what did...
You can set up your business in a way so that the money that you make is pretty passive.
If you have any kind of online biz, you need an email list and you need to understand how to connect with your audience through email.
The very first step that you need to take to start earning some money from your blog is to get some people in the door.
The kind of content that makes people remember you and want to read, listen, or watch everything you have to say.
You could probably say that Alex and I took that leap a little prematurely and it was definitely based more on feelings and desires rather than serious logic and rational decision-making.
I don’t want to use the term “wasted,” because ultimately everything that we spent and every failed lesson learned led to our successful path today.
Our first blog was born from passion, but we ultimately decided to pivot towards popularity, which then translated into profits
But despite this motivation and willingness to do whatever it took, our first blog still flopped.
I can tell that they think I just take some photos and write some stuff about them and put them on the internet.
The reasons why you are doing this are what will continue to propel you forward through the tough times.
Because podcasts provide a platform for us to really get real with you -- in ways we’ve been unable to before.
