How to Make Money Blogging and a 750+ Advertising List

By Nico @atravellersday

Starting a blog is one of the best things that I’ve done in the last five years. In my first year of blogging I earned more than $20,000 from A Travellers Journey and I learnt a lot. I learnt how to run a website (really simple), basic programming (incredibly difficult), work with advertisers (easy once you know how) and a lot more besides. Today I want to share some of the things that I’ve learnt and tell you a bit about my journey…

“Blogging was my springboard into the world of online commerce.”

A Travellers Journey was my springboard into the world of online commerce. It’s not my only site (I run a number of different travel sites). Still the travel niche doesn’t really interest me at the moment and over the last six months I have started to branch out in different directions. One of the big things I’ve been focusing on is software development and affiliate marketing. This has been another steep learning curve and I’m weeks away from launching my first premium WordPress plugin (I’ll share it with you once it launches).

What can you learn from my journey?

To anyone who has followed this blog, this might sound like a new direction for me, but it’s actually a continuation. I’ll be honest, the reason I started blogging was because I wanted to work online. I knew from experience that blogging is profitable and it seemed a lot easier (with zero knowledge of running a website) than directly launching an online business.

Looking back, I’ve decided that in a lot of ways blogging is one of the easiest ways to start out making money online. It gives you the space to learn about how to run a website without needing to focus on affiliate marketing or product development. The truth is though that it’s not as profitable as actually running a business and this is why I’m making the changeover.

Why I’m Focusing on Software

To give you a good example, my friend started a software company the same month I started blogging. His company has cleared seven-figures in sales, I’ve made less than six. You can understand why I want to make the change, but here’s the thing… My friend spent six years developing websites, working in affiliate marketing and learning about software development before he launched his company. He needed that time to grow and learn about how to make money online and manage a business before he could successfully launch a business. In the same way, I have needed that time and space to learn and grow.

So I Want to Share My Knowledge

I know there are a lot of people who were in the same position that I was in two years ago. There are people like me who are searching for a change of direction. Blogging could be that opportunity that lets you earn money while learning about how to work online. If this is you, then I want to help.

I’ve created an online course to help people make money from blogging. I call it Instant Blogging Success. The course reveals everything I have learnt about making money from blogging through direct advertising (which remains one of the most profitable ways of making money online). In three books, I’ll teach you how to set up a blog and grow your site. I’ll show you how to set your advertising rates, contact advertising agencies and grow your advertising email list. I’ll even teach you how to make money using this method without even running your own blog. To give you real value added, I’m also including my complete list of over 750 advertising contacts that I have spent the last two years collecting. The great thing is that I’m even including the contact details of advertising agencies that run Google friendly advertising campaigns.

In the very best wantrepeneur style, I created the course that I wish I had been offered when I started blogging online (really, I started with just 20 advertising contacts and made thousands of dollars of mistakes along the way). While I can’t guarantee you my results, I can say that this is one course where you will make a 100% return on your investment and then some. Month after month, year after year, for as long as you want to continue blogging…

Check out the Instant Blogging Success blogging course and find out if it’s right for you. Hope to see you on the inside.
