Is It Really Possible To Make $20k Per Month As A Blogger?

Is It Really Possible To Make $20k Per Month As A Blogger?

Hi, everyone!

Another dreary ‘spring' day here in Cincy – I laugh every time I use the word SPRING and CINCY in the same sentence…but I digress…

Today's newsletter is on a topic that is near and dear to my hearty: free traffic πŸ˜‰

Now, in truth, there is really no such thing as ‘free' traffic, because you will still be paying for those visitors with your time and work BUT once you get your website set up correctly, you benefit from your work for months and sometimes, years, to come. πŸ˜‰

There is no way that we can discuss every aspect of optimizing your website for the Search Engines in this article, but there are still many steps that even the most novice of website owners can take to optimize their website for Google and Bing, including simple steps such as:

1) Having a clear category structure or silo, for both your products and written content. This makes it easier for both your customers and Google to find what they are looking for

2) Keyword Selection & inclusion versus human readers…Yes, keyword or phrase selection IS important – but Google wants the user/visitor to have a great experience on the sites it recommends, so stuffing your blog post with your primary keyword and related keywords will not help you rank better! Your writing will rank better if the article reads and flows well for humans first and foremost! πŸ˜‰

3) Length of your blog post – for many years, the ‘standard' blog post was 350 to 750 words, then along came the truly overwhelming ‘Pillar' post – a tome that Homer would have been proud of, and which seemed to put successful blogging out of reach for most normal humanoids. But in reality – the Big G would rather see consistency, so you are likely to get just as good results by posting more realistic articles 3 times a week than one humongous post once a month.

4) Don't use the same keywords or phrases over and over in your posts – this confuses Google! Yes, I know that can be challenging when your site is focused on one main type of product, such as journals, so try writing posts that focus on 3 to 5-word phrases (Long-tail keywords) that describe different types of journals. Ideally, the article should include the phrase in the first sentence, again mid-way through and at the end – but generally the exact phrase should only be used 2 or 3 times in the standard length blog post. Use variations on the phrase another 2 or 3 times.

5) Use your keywords in the title (h1 tags) and then again as a paragraph title (h2 tags) and be sure to make it bold at least once in the article.

There are so many free SEO courses online but one of my faves is by Debbit Gartner, aka  The Flooring Girl. Over a period of 2 years, she built her blog up to $20k per month in affiliate revenue – all through SEO!! Yep she is my hero!!

You can find her free Beginner's Guide to SEO HERE and when you are ready to move on – her other courses are some of the best I have found so far and certainly the most reasonably proced by far! I have almost everything she has produced including Easy on Page SEO for Beginners, and 45 Not So Obvious Lessons I Learned On The Way To Making $20k Per Month (priceless!!)

And if you don't believe me – happy to show the receipts!! I really like to learn from the people that are doing this on a daily basis. Debbie has actually responded to my emails, and is a real person!! Her blog is not a corporate-made story – she is the real deal and a real person! Totally recommend her!

And regarding the registration for the Homepreneur Adventure: Part 2…

Look for it to go live Monday as I decided to make some changes to the registration process, based on discussions in the Kitchen Sink Zoom Thursday, and I will have the forms ready Monday at the latest…all great ideas that just needed some extra time to implement πŸ˜‰

This is going to be a ‘curated' event, meaning that every submission for either the Premium or the Swag Bag giveaway will be reviewed and scored by a committee of 5 to 7 members, so that we have the highest quality of products for the event!!

April 18, 2021 – Check Out These Bonuses & How You Can Get Them!

Hi, everyone!

We have beautiful blue skies today but it is nippy and there and the weather forecast for most of the week is looking at the possibility of SNOW FLURRIES, but that is a good thing since my week “off” is really to get caught up on work, and that would be tough to do with warm weather beckoning me to come and play outside!!

Those pretty papers above are part of the 20 new papers that are the bonus for Kristie and Becky's Pinning Keywords Course.Β The papers are pretty well split between florals and more contemporary designs, so something for everyone!

If you purchased the course you will find them in your account at WarriorPlus, but you can also get them as a bonus for the other following products that I did NOT offer a bonus for originally:

 

β€’ From Coach Glue: Automation & Systems

β€’ From Cindy Bidar:Β The Money Maker's Bundle

β€’Β From Piggy Makes Bank: Is the Fear of Success Holding You Back?
β€’ And ANY of the SEO courses from Debbie Gartner (see below!)

 

Or if you would rather have the recent Zodiac Bonus bundle – I am happy to substitute that one for you! Just let me know which one you want!

Β 

Want to learn SEO and Drive REAL traffic to your website?

If you have not picked up Debbie Gartner's FREE Beginner's Guide to SEO HERE yet, I strongly recommend it!! Debbie truly is a real success story! Over a period of 2 years, she built her blog up to $20k per month in affiliate revenue – all through SEO!! Yep she is my hero!!

Pick up any of her courses from the links below and send me your receipt to bonus@plrofthemonth.club to get your bonus:

Now About Backlinking…..

Getting legit backlinks can be a VERY powerful way to increase your visibility in the Search Engines – but ONLY if done correctly! A great example is the extra keywords that we are now ranking for in Google since getting on AppSumo! It's amazing what one really powerful link can do for you – but the truth is, LOTS of links from other blogs that are not as strong can do just as much because it says to the Big G (or B or Y) that somebody likes you enough to point their readers in your direction πŸ˜‰

 

This is a strong argument for posting your newsletter on your website every day, too, because Google ALSO likes to see OUTBOUND links from your site to related topic websites, as this indicates a positive user experience in most cases. (And yes, I need to get back to doing this, too!)

 

The one thing NOT to do? Do not comment on blog posts unless you are making a comment that is relevant, and real – anything else is seen as spam by Google, and not appreciated by any blog owner. I can pretty much promise you that if you hire someone on Fiverr to create backlinks for you – they will never get indexed by Google and will do you no good. In fact, Google judges you by the company you keep – so if your links are junk sites that are only used for spammy link posting – you are very likely to actually be penalized for your backlinking efforts.

 

And a word of warning: Every week lately, it seems that someone on WarriorPlus launches a new software to increase your traffic through backlinking or commenting ‘on autopilot'. You might see some initial burst of traffic but these things are pretty much always short-lived unless you want to get into very high-end and technical VPN set-ups etc.Β 

 

Yes, the search engines do change their algorithms from time to time, but good solid content rarely is affected for long, because Google wants their customers to have a good experience. As long as you remember that – you will be fine.

D’vorah’s Sale Ends In Just A Few Hours!!

Hi, everyone!

Another very brief newsletter – today was packed from beginning to end, and gotta call Mom in Florida yet tonight so I can get her grocery order! LOL She is 87, lives on her own, and is caring for her little furry companion, a rescue Yorkie mix named Murray, who just had surgery, so it's back to grocery delivery for the next couple of weeks! And of course, she hates computers so guess who has to take of the order from Cincinnati for her? arrgghhh…..

Today was our first session of the Digital Planner Workshop for the folks that purchased the Homepreneur's Adventure Premium Bundle. We had a great turnout, and a LOT of great questions – and my little orange kittie thought she should be front and center during the Zoom…sigh…the joys of being a Homepreneur!

And…the promised templates are uploaded, with more to come before the next session, April 30th! DO play with them between now and then, and come ready with more questions. You can access them via the same link for the Planner templates.

And the next session we will get to dig into some of the FUN stuff πŸ˜‰

And I promise a good beefy newsletter tomorrow as I get back to some traffic stuff – we will look at how to do a bit of basic SEO planning for your blog that will increase your organic traffic, which is ALWAYS a good thing because it is truly TARGETED visitors πŸ˜‰

August 9, 2020: My Outrageous Goals for 2020 – It’s Not Over Yet!

August 9, 2020: My Outrageous Goals for 2020 – It's Not Over Yet!

Hi Everyone!

It's Sunday evening, and I have to admit, I kinda played hooky this weekend! We had a very unexpected cookout when my youngest ‘faux' son, his fiancee, her brother, and his girlfriend brought burgers and other goodies over, and we had a lovely day together. Add to that 2 gorgeous huskies (one of whom is my grandpuppy), and it was quite a crowd here! They brought a ton of food, cooked a wonderful meal, and it was a much-needed break for everyone. No hugs, and lots of hand sanitizer was used, but it so much fun to see everyone. Amazing how good a simply burger tastes with the right company πŸ˜‰

Then I slept 9 hours last night – which is about 2.5X my usual night, but in my defense – I was exhausted. I set some outrageous goals for the summer, and in spite of COVID – I am going to come awfully close to hitting them! My biggest goal was in list growth as opposed to an increase in revenue.

I know, I know. Most people set monetary goals, but list growth is actually more important because if you build – and nurture – your list, the revenue will follow

Over the last year, I have spent – and wasted – a lot of time and money on list-building courses, challenges, masterminds, and group coaching. One so-called ‘expert', a name most of you would recognize, actually told us to add our friends and family to our newsletter list, and then had the audacity to say “See? I told you – list building is EASY!” And no, he was not kidding, that was pretty much all he taught you about building a list! And, yes, it was a PAID course.

But two methods have done VERY well for me this summer – Pinterest and Online Events – Bundles & Giveaways!!

From June through August, I will have participated in 9 events. 2 were paid bundles, and the other 7 were free giveaways. BC Stack and Ruthie's Birthday Bash were both paid bundle events that are referred to as ‘juried', meaning your product has to be reviewed and approved for submission. I had great results from both, and continue to gain new subscribers every day as the buyers download their products from my site.

The other events are all giveaways, some with list size qualifications and some without. One event, JVology, not only has some serious promotion requirements but also a pretty steep entry fee. I bit the bullet, and paid the fee as a birthday present to myself!!

And now, as I can see my goal getting closer – I have joined forces with a couple of friends, Ruthie Bowers and Chrissy Salus, and we are taking the next step….look for the full details this coming week as we announce the dates for The Start Your Side Hustle Giveaway!!

We want to make this a viable list building event for everyone, so start getting your products ready – the doors will open for submission no later than September 1, and the event begins September 10!!

In the meantime…
we are scheduling dates for all of
those Zoom Sessions!!

These sessions were bonuses for many of you that purchased these bundles through my affiliate link (thank you!) – I can't wait to get started! 

  • For The Ruthies Birthday Bash Bundle Bonus:
    August 18, 2:00 PM EST – Zoom details to be sent to Group list
    Second Q & A session to be scheduled based on group feedback
  • BC Stack Implementation Sessions
    August 25, 2:00 PM EST – Zoom details to be sent to Group list
    September 1, 2:00 PM EST
    September 11, 2:00 PM EST

    Implementation Topic: All About Blogging
    Based on the group survey, we will cover all aspects of blogging, from setting up your WordPress blog (including working with CPanel), installing your theme, best plugins to use, keyword research, and then moving on to traffic and monetization.
     

And don't forget these giveaways!!

1) The Annual Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Giveaway

5) The Start Your Side Hustle Giveaway:
WOOT WOOT!! This is our very own event that we will be hosting shortly after Labor Day (mid-September). Watch for details on this one – we promise you will NOT want to miss our inaugural event – or any of the ones to follow!!

Have an amazing week and stay safe!!!

August 7, 2020: Font Pairs: What Are They & Why Should You Care?

August 7, 2020: Font Pairs: What Are They & Why Should You Care?

It's Friday and that means….FREEBIES!!

One of the really fun aspects of doing design work is staying on top of design trends, and over the last couple of years, ‘font pairing' has been a very popular trend, primarily in logos and headers, but also for blog post titles and content.

In case you are not familiar with the term – font pairs are two different font styles that are used together to create a more stylish or contemporary look than a single font used alone would. 

Unfortunately, very few fonts that you can purchase have rights that will allow you to pass the font on to your PLR buyer, and some even have limits as to how many products you can sell using the font.

As a PLR creator, this can often be a challenge finding stylish, attractive fonts that are free for commercial use today…and tomorrow!

I have had this happen on more than one occasion: I create a design using a lovely new ‘free' font, only to have it be a PAID font 2 months later when the customer wants to edit the file. This happens, unless you want to limit your designs to the handful of boring fonts that everyone has access to on their OS. 

Blech…

So, instead of doing the bland & boring, every few weeks, I go through all of the usual places for free fonts, and I update our list of readily available fonts that can be easily substituted in our planners – whether by necessity or choice!

And if you have never added new fonts to your system – here's how ya do it:

Mac IOS

iPad

Windows 10

I promise it is very, very easy, and once you learn how, you will become a font-a-holic like the rest of us!

Here's this month's font update

Script:

Abuget

Rembank

Wintersoul

Nouradilla

Cloudy Night

Bad Script

Standard But Fun Fonts πŸ˜‰

Oswald

Shadows Into Light

Chilanka

Architect's Daughter

Baloo2

Unica One

August 6, 2020: Thursday Treats: Not. One. Thing. For. Sale. Today!!

Hi, Everyone!

Oh, yeah! This is how I end every day. NEVER. But hey! Hope springs eternal, right?

Quick Reminder: We have our 3pm EST  Zoom session today. We have now merged the Thursday and Tuesday calls, as we begin to move into our next phase of List Building. If you registered but have not received the call details, please reply to this and I will send the Zoom details to you asap – please put ZOOM in the subject line!

Today is a totally ad-free zone – there is NOTHING for sale in today's newsletter. There are so many FREE bundle giveaways that I thought I would highlight a few of them for you today – and then explain a bit about the POWER of free!

1) The Annual Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Giveaway
This has more than 30+ gifts, across multiple niches. A nice mix of gifts from folks that you don't usually see in giveaways. Yes, we have one of our digital planners in this one.

WOOT WOOT!! This is our very own event that we will be hosting shortly after Labor Day (mid-September). Watch for details on this one – we promise you will NOT want to miss our inaugural event – or any of the ones to follow!!

And now to explain about the “Power of Free”….

All of these events are offering ‘free' gifts – but the truth is that the cost of the gift is the person's email address. In the beginning, I hesitated to participate in these events because I had heard that too often people used bogus email addresses or they unsubscribed immediately.

And of course – freebie seekers are never buyers, right? WRONG!!! I have added hundreds and hundreds of new CUSTOMERS to my lists with giveaway events like the ones above!

Thanks to the MANY events that I have participated in over the last year – I have a real business now. I am on leaderboards. I make sales. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

I am still stunned with every notification πŸ˜‰

So I recommend that you check these out, download some of the gifts and….

• Take careful note as to which registration and delivery sequences you AS A CUSTOMER like

• Add these sequences to your own swipe file (You do have one of those, right?).

• Track the full email/autoresponder sequence(how long is it? Any additional offers?)

• And most importantly – which ones did you find especially obnoxious or annoying and why?

Many people complain that they are buried in emails after an event and just delete every one that comes in!

PLEASE do not do this! Every event is a potential Berlitz course in online marketing, and you can learn SO MUCH by actually paying attention to the steps you are put through both during the optin process and in the follow-up.

You don't need to spend thousands. You don't need a huge budget.

So start thinking about what YOU can giveaway when we announce the details of our very first GIVEAWAY event in just a few days!! You have a whole month to get ready and yes, we will be there to hold your hand.
