The Basics of Blogging

Blogging is a way for people to express how they feel on the internet but it can also be a great way to make money. Though you may not see it as a way to make money, it is still something that you can do as a fun hobby. Here are some of the blogging basics and how you can get started with your blog.

Find A Niche

Before you make a blog, you will need to know what your niche is. A niche is basically what your blog is going to be about and it is important that you choose a niche that will get some traffic. You have to find a niche that is not too saturated but also not too unknown. Choosing a niche like baseball can be very common but it is a better idea to try and get specific by choosing an actual baseball team. You will need to find a niche that you can constantly write about and something that you truly have a passion for.

Stay Consistent

Choose a day of the week where you will release your next post so that you will be able to let your readers know when to expect a new post. You will need to stay consistent because you will most likely not have readers to begin with but you will need to remember that they will come. Do not base your success off of comments and views and base it off of how consistent you are.

If you are able to get these blogging basics down, then you will be able to start blogging. Starting and running a blog is really not that tough and as long as you choose a niche that you have a passion for, you will never get sick of making blog posts.

The Ultimate Traffic Hack: How To Get Unlimited Free Traffic From Social Media

I know I talk a lot about paid traffic in here. But I actually went from 0-$500/month in affiliate income with only organic (free) traffic.

Here’s a complete breakdown of the exact process that got me my first $500/month in affiliate income in just 45 days.

Strategy: $600/month affiliate income – Giving massive value in groups / Messenger Voice Message Drops

Step 1 – Clean up Facebook profile, and get a professional headshot for profile pic

Step 2 – Set Facebook profile privacy settings wide open

Step 3 – Join a handful of large niche-specific Facebook groups

Step 4 – Consistently give massive value in the groups, and try to offer the first and best solution to people’s business challenges and problems

Step 5 – Accept all friend requests that come in (unless their profile pic is bowl of fruit, they have 6 friends and joined Facebook 3 days ago) – You’ll attract a ton of friend requests, and won’t need to do any spammy cold sales outreach

Step 6 – Within 10 minutes of accepting all friend requests, send the new friend a personalized voice message (I call these ‘Messenger Voice Message Drops’)

Messenger Voice Message Drop (MVMD) Script:

‘Hey {first name}, I just wanted to take a second to reach out to you, and say thanks for connecting. I really appreciate it.. Feel free to hit me up on Messenger anytime, if there’s anything I can ever do for you, or any way I can help you out’

Step 7 – Receive a reply to your MVMD within 24-48 hours (Rarely will you ever get a reply within first 24 hours, but don’t worry that’s normal) thanking you for connecting with them also, and opening to you up about 1 or 2 their biggest business challenges and frustrations)

Step 8 – Spend 5-10 minutes giving even more value on Messenger (through voice messages) without expecting any thing in return (you’ll be able to add a ton of value here very easily, and without spending much of your time, because you’re now communicating in a 1 to 1 context, instead of a one to many context in a group)

Step 9 – Provide an affiliate link as a solution to their business problem if relevant

Step 10 – Send a MVMD once a week or so to stay in touch

Step 11 – Now that there is a relationship built, close sales of multiple affiliates offers related to the first affiliate product you sold them, using voice messages. If they bought ClickFunnels, sell them FunnelU and FunnelScripts) – These additional sales will be incredibly easy to close..

The great thing about this community, is that we have folks at every different stage of the affiliate marketing journey (every level from $0 to 7 figures)

Hopefully, if you’re among the folks trying to get from $0-$500/month, this post gave you value, by showing you a raw, transparent and realistic look at how I did it in roughly 6 weeks
