How to Catapult Yourself from Diddly Squat to a Booming Online Career

How to Catapult Yourself from Diddly Squat to a Booming Online Career

*Sigh*

Soul-destroying, isn’t it?

You look at popular bloggers.

With thousands of Twitter followers.

Hundreds of blog comments.

And digital products selling like hot cakes. At premium prices too.

Webinar? Sold out.

New infographic? Gone viral.

And then …

You look at your own online presence. A handful of comments. A few hundred Twitter followers. And a faint presence on Google+.

Does it make you feel down? Overwhelmed?

Does earning a living online feel impossible? Like an insurmountable task?

In October 2012,  I felt the same way.

The Sneaky Way to Create Products that Sell Like Crazy… from Day One

The Sneaky Way to Create Products that Sell Like Crazy… from Day One

Deep down, you know it’s true.

Creating a product is a natural next step for you as a blogger.

(It’s your best chance of making some real money from your blog too.)

But building a product is scary.

Not just because it means putting yourself out there for the world to judge – though that can be pretty terrifying. No, it’s scary because of all the things that can go wrong.

What if you spend hundreds of hours to build your product, and nobody likes it?

What if you invest hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars, and nobody ends up buying?

What if you pour your heart and soul into it, and the handful of customers who do buy end up asking for refunds because they never get the results you promised them?

These fears are more than justified; this is what happens to *most* people who set out to build a product.

But it doesn’t have to be that way…

The Shocking Cost of Running a Blog (and How to Create a Realistic Budget)

The Shocking Cost of Running a Blog (and How to Create a Realistic Budget)

Ever wondered how much it really costs to run a successful blog?

Get ready for a shock.

I spend $285 per month to run my website and podcast.

(Cue the collective gasp.)

Of course, whether you need to spend that kind of money depends on your goals.

If you’re running a blog purely for fun, you can get most of what you need for free.

But if you’re trying to earn a living from your blog – or if you’re simply serious about building a popular blog – you can’t do it on freebies alone.

Too many bloggers, though, refuse to invest in their efforts at all – even to buy their own domain name – and then wonder why they can’t grow their following or struggle to get taken seriously.

Others sporadically invest in their blogs, but fail to track what they spend, leaving no financial barometer by which to measure their return on investment.

But whatever your goals as a blogger, you’d be smart to get some clarity around what it’ll cost to achieve them.

So here’s the big question:

How much should you spend, and what should you spend your money on?

The Guilt-Free Guide to Earning an Honest Buck from Your Blog

The Guilt-Free Guide to Earning an Honest Buck from Your Blog

You’re in conflict.

I know because I’ve been there myself.

You love blogging and you see how a thriving blog can help people all over the world solve problems, connect with others, and get closer to their dreams.

But at the same time, you have a sneaking suspicion you’re not giving your own blog the best possible chance to succeed.

The problem is time. Or more precisely, lack of it.

Because in the real world, blogging has to fit in around other “more important” things. Like a full-time job, for example.

So you end up doing what any smart blogger would do and you make the best of the time available.

You seek out motivational tips, blogging tricks and productivity hacks to help you squeeze the most out of every precious blogging hour.

But deep down you know it’s not enough.

The answer isn’t greater efficiency. No, all the productivity tips in the world won’t turn a few spare hours into 20 hours. That’s nuts.

You need more time. Because one thing’s for sure – you’re not doing your blog justice right now.

Now, if you could make some money from your blog, that would give you a little more freedom.

If you could get paid to blog, then maybe you could build some serious momentum and make a real difference.

But realistically, you just can’t see how that’ll ever happen.

So, what’s a conflicted blogger to do?

Serious Bloggers Only is Live! (Grab Your Free Membership)

Serious Bloggers Only is Live! (Grab Your Free Membership)

Drumroll, please.

Today, we’re announcing a new community built specifically for serious bloggers – people who aren’t just tinkering around with blogging for a hobby, but expect to get actual results from it. Maybe you want to become a full-time writer or get a book deal or land a high-paying client that does everything you say.

Serious Bloggers Only will teach you how. Inside, you’ll learn everything you need to know about getting traffic, improving your writing, and even monetizing your blog.

Because I’ll be teaching you.

Over the past five years, the blogs I’ve helped build have generated over 200 million page views and over $50 million in revenue. I’m taking all that experience and condensing it into a series of cheat sheets and checklists that’ll enable you to take the web by storm.

And I’m doing it for a shockingly cheap price. To reach critical mass, we’re giving a free month of membership to the first 1,000 people who join.

Click here to get the details.

The bad news?

Just over the past few days, 413 “early birds” have already snuck inside. There are only 587 spots left, and today, I’m sending this announcement out to over 40,000 people.

So, get in while you can. :-)

Fair warning: right now, the whole site is still a little plain. We’re in the process of sprucing up the design and adding new content, so you’ll see lots of changes over the next few weeks.

Once we reach critical mass, we’re also thinking about starting a forum, holding some live events, and maybe even doing a post of the week that’ll be featured here on Boost Blog Traffic. Exciting stuff. :-)

For right now though, you’ll have access to The Six-Figure Roadmap – an 8,000 word report about how to take your blog from zero to six figures. We also have a list of recommended books and an execution checklist outlining everything you need to do. We’ll be adding more over the next few days, but it’s plenty to keep you busy for now.

So, head on over and take a look. We’ll see you inside.
