Financial Freedom Through Blogging
How to & Grow a Blog That Gets 100K Monthly Page Views and Makes $5,000/Month (Without Being an Internet Guru) and Use That Income to Live Your Best Life
What if you could find a way to work from home and make a full-time income doing something you enjoy?
What if that side hustle pays you enough to quit your 9 to 5 a year or two from now, and live life on your own terms thanks to your new income stream?
What if that income stream was mostly passive, and it was as easy as ing a blog?
What if the blog you today earns you $5K/month for the rest of your life, even during recession?
Hey, I’m Lidiya
And here’s how blogging changed my life:
I was once living a life I wanted to escape from. I had no direction, nothing to hustle for, and wasn’t financially independent.
What I had, however, was a desire to learn, to grow, to use my skills and time in a better way. Also, I wanted to live on my own terms instead of being limited by the country I lived in, the 9 to 5 world, the expectations of others, the financial barriers to exploring the world, etc.
It wasn’t until I realized how much I enjoy writing and that I was so passionate about personal development, that I combined these two and found ways to make something out of it.
So I began freelance writing. That was my first income online and earning my first $1K gave me the confidence that this Internet thing could really help me change my life.
But I was exchanging time for money and had to be on the laptop to actually do the work. Not to mention meeting client expectations was a nightmare, finding new clients involved a lot of insecurity, and I was still stressed, just while I was making money online.
So clearly that wasn’t the solution.
Luckily, during that time I had also ed a blog called Let’s Reach Success. I was publishing content for fun and also used it as my portfolio to show potential freelance clients what articles I can create for them.
I fell in love with blogging not long after so I learned more about it. Turned out, that was a side hustle that had much more potential than freelancing and so many bloggers out there had quit their jobs to blog full-time.
Fast forward to now, this blog earns $50K, gets over 1 million page views a year, and is the foundation of my brand, allowing me to help people a business and transform their life.
It’s also what has given me the chance to travel, leave my home country (Bulgaria) and relocate to my ideal destination (Amsterdam, Netherlands), wake up whenever I want to every day and work from home.
The first years were about research, making mistakes, understanding the whole idea behind setting up a WordPress site, blogging, publishing content, providing value, monetizing a site, building traffic to a blog, working with sponsors, designing a website, etc.
I wasted a ton of time, but all this has now allowed me to help others cut the learning curve in half and make money blogging much sooner.
ing a blog today can mean owning your time, earning potential, and future a year from now.
Most People Don’t a Blog or Make Money Online. Here’s Why
There’s just too much info out there.
I can’t tell you how often I get an email from a reader saying something like this:
I’m Ayo. I’ve been thinking about ing a blog for almost a month now. So much so, it’s caused me a lot of stress. ”
“I’m confused about my blogging carrier. I’m doing blogging from 7 months. But I’m not getting success.
What do I do now?
I’m really frustrated.”
“I want to make a source of passive income and I am interested in technology. But don’t know where to .”
It doesn’t need to be like that.
There are things that work every time. The problem is that every expert you learn from is trying to help you achieve a different goal and sharing their unique experience with you.
Buying many books or following many bloggers might be overwhelming and can lead to never taking action and setting up a site.
It’s hard to know who to trust.
That’s why when I was learning from others over the years, I followed their journey from day one and knew exactly how they earned their money and grew their online business.
I too try to be transparent. On my About page, I shared my whole story. Occasionally, I write articles where I talk about my experiences that led to moving to another country, doubling my income, becoming a freelancer and then a full-time blogger.
I also publish detailed income reports, which means I calculate my blog earnings and expenses and share them with anyone interested to learn how I make money blogging from home. In addition, I put a ton of free content out there for anyone wanting to a business on the side, change their habits, become productive, learn about digital marketing and money management, etc. I have free articles, eBooks, courses, and more.
That builds enough trust. Now, I’ve gathered MY BEST knowledge and experience and bundled it into this epic course you’re about to check out.
The technical side of blogging turns most people off. ️
Do you often hear about WordPress, hosting, domain, SSL, and SEO and decide blogging is not for you simply because you aren’t familiar with these?
Or maybe you’ve ed a blog in the past but then had to understand Google Analytics, email automation, permalinks, domain authority, GDPR, and ad networks?
My readers email me all the time to ask basic questions about blogging, others simply wonder where to .
Sadly, most assume making money blogging is out of the question as they can’t build a website, design it, or promote it.
I’ve got you covered. All that is something you need no experience with. I will show you what you need to know and the exact steps to follow to set up your blog, optimize it, make it fast and secure, and turn it into a money-making machine.
You won’t need any code, design knowledge or understanding of how the digital world works for that matter.
WordPress - the free open-source content management system that powers most of the blogs on the Web - is at your disposal and I will show you how to master it in no time.
I ed with zero experience but was able to grow Let’s Reach Success to over 100K monthly page views.
Here’s a screenshot of my traffic from Google Analytics for July 2019:
They don’t know how to sell online.
Another reason why most people don’t become bloggers is that they don’t know how to sell…
Neither did I. When I was just ing out with blogging, I didn’t want to send emails to my audience (I thought it was annoying.). I didn’t want to promote the products I created and ask for people’s money. I didn’t want to charge a lot for sponsored posts even though brands were contacting me to ask for my rates and were interested in Let’s Reach Success.
A few years went by and I learned this:
It’s okay to ask people for money but only after you’ve offered them enough value for free.
People will gladly pay you if you can truly help them with your product.
With a great blog and the right monetization method, you don’t need to sell actively.
Instead, you can have a system that brings you money passively each day, week or month (thanks to having ads on your site, a sales funnel to sell your products, or by creating epic content and recommending other people’s products in it, which is the foundation of affiliate marketing).
You don’t need to appear salesy even when you write a review of a product or service. Once you learn more about affiliate marketing within this course, you will see how to choose products you believe in, include the links naturally, tell people why it’s worth buying this and how it has helped you, and write content that sells but without pushing the reader to do anything they don’t want to.
This can bring you hundreds or thousands of dollars in passive income each month in just a year.
Here’s a screenshot (from PayPal) of my earnings from January till September 2019.
So, selling as a blogger isn’t hard or wrong or unprofessional. Once you build your site, gain traffic and get to know your audience a bit better, you can simply monetize their attention by giving them what they want and helping them solve their problems (while still providing a ton of value).
Now that you know most of the things stopping you from building a blogging business are not true, are you ready to become a blogger?
Introducing Financial Freedom Through Blogging
ing a blog today might mean crushing it a year from now with your side hustle, and getting to $5K a year later only so you can quit your job, reclaim your time, and blogging full-time (from home or while traveling).
That’s why I created the roadmap for you - to save you the need for tens of hours of research, the mistakes, the confusion, the unanswered questions, the moments of wanting to give up.
Financial Freedom Through Blogging is for new, intermediate and even advanced bloggers and it covers it ALL! From outlining your blogging strategy and building discipline as a blogger, launching the website with the best tools out there and designing it, to mastering marketing, blog traffic, content creation and sales.
You get 10 modules with over 100 lectures, tech tutorials, video lessons, step-by-step guides, and a whole bunch of bonus materials included.
“The course is THOROUGH. Lidiya holds nothing back!!
Right now, I am very happy with the progress of my blog: TheSuccessfulBrand.com. It is shaping up quite nicely. I still need to add a few more blog posts, my freebie and continue working on the about me page but overall I am so excited because I know that I am building a solid foundation because of the way the course is structured. PS.
I’ve already recommended it to three previous clients. (They’d be silly not to buy it.)”
- April Gregory, Brand & Marketing Strategist Business Coach
This Course Will Teach You 4 Key Things
1. How to a Blog The Right Way, Fast and on a Budget
It’s okay if you aren’t tech-savvy, don’t have experience, aren’t sure how blogging works, don’t know what platform to use to create a website or how to run it once it’s live.
Don’t worry. I will walk you through this step by step and give you only the information you need to actually create a blogging strategy, find your niche, set goals, find the right hosting provider and install WordPress on it so you can launch your blog.
Together with that, I’ll show you how to design it professionally with a few clicks, what pages to add first, what steps to take to have a great platform ready to welcome your first visitors and earn you money down the road.
In fact, I’ll even build a whole new blog myself so you can see how the process works and simply follow my steps.
2. How to Drive Huge Traffic to Your New Blog and Build an Audience
The next modules of the course are all about building your brand, growing your email list, and driving a ton of traffic to your site.
You’ll learn how to a newsletter (because the money is in the email list) with a free email marketing provider as well as with a more professional tool that will help you take things to the next level. You’ll see exactly how to get your first email subscribers, create opt-in forms that get noticed and give people the content they want so they can subscribe to your newsletter.
In addition, you’ll learn how to turn readers into subscribers and nurture your email list, create welcome email series and sell your products to your subscribers.
Module 5 and 6 are where the magic happens in terms of SEO, as you’ll learn all you need to optimize every single page on your blog as well as your whole website so that search engines can love it and rank it high.
I show you how I write content that ranks on top of Google for certain keywords, how I choose blog topics and outline the articles that are the cornerstone content of my blog, and more.
I share with you ALL you need to know about SEO as a blogger so you can get 100K page views per month and increase the earning potential of your blog.
But that traffic won’t be coming just from Google. There’s another magical place for bloggers and that’s Pinterest. After dedicating a whole year to master it, get half a million page views there and bring thousands of Pinners to my blog on a monthly basis, I now want to share the exact steps with you.
Many successful bloggers get 90% of their traffic from Pinterest. And it’s indeed easy to get to 50K monthly page views on your blog simply thanks to having great Pins and pinning strategically.
However, the rest of your traffic should come from SEO as you should never rely on a social media channel to bring all of your site’s traffic. If you combine long-term results (organic traffic from Google) and the quick weekly spikes in traffic thanks to Pinterest, you can be sure your blog will be getting 100K page views a month and earning you enough to be able to call yourself a full-time blogger.
I added Module 10 of the course (which is all about Pinterest) just recently. First, I wanted to make sure I learn all I can about using Pinterest for bloggers from different sources. Now, I combine my best tips, share my exact results and give you clear steps on how to master Pinterest, create viral Pins, and get tens of thousands of people to your blog.
This is what I saw in my Google Analytics when I had one of my first viral Pins back in the days (this image shows only traffic from social media):
You can easily get 1,000 visitors from Pinterest per day even if you have a new blog with just a few articles on it. But for that, you need to have the right content and topic, the right Pin design, the right boards to add it to, an optimized Pinterest profile, and more.
Once I ed using Pinterest smarter and my Pins went viral, I analyzed exactly why that happened and replicated the process. Now, my Pinterest traffic is consistent month after month and when organic traffic goes down (which happens naturally some months), I still get enough people to my blog.
3. How to Make Your First Money Blogging
Many of the aspiring bloggers who reach out to me are confused about the possible ways to monetize a website. Some don’t a blog because they don’t believe it can earn them money, while others have been blogging for a while but can’t monetize strategically so they are leaving money on the table.
With the next modules in Financial Freedom through Blogging, I aim at clarifying the best ways to make money from your blog and turn that into a recurring income.
Once your site is set up and you’ve included the main elements, you can think about the most practical way for you to earn your first dollars blogging.
In Module 7, you’ll learn all you need about the 2 income streams you should with - advertising and affiliate marketing.
Advertising is based on traffic so once you have content on your site and promote it on Pinterest following the strategies I’ve shared, you can gain traffic to your blog in the first weeks and months. Then you can partner with a professional ad network and earn a few hundred dollars a month.
The more page views you get, the more your ad revenue will increase. That’s also going to be your first passive income stream.
Here’s a screenshot of my ad revenue from Mediavine in July 2019:
Affiliate marketing comes next. You’ll see lessons on how to choose your top affiliate products and promoting them on your blog in multiple ways, how to write affiliate content and avoid some major mistakes bloggers make.
Affiliate marketing isn’t easy to get ed with. Once you get the hang of it, though, you’ll be amazed at the results.
For example, here are my sales of the courses of other popular bloggers in my niche (I’ve taken these courses myself, enjoyed them, become an affiliate and now recommend them to my audience).
You can see there’s more than 1 sale through my affiliate links almost every month, commissions are high, and sometimes my earnings are over $250 (as shown in the last column).
And that’s only for the products of 2 people online. There are so many others you can learn from and become an affiliate for so you can share their resources with your blog readers.
That too is passive income as the sales happen once someone clicks on your affiliate links, which can continue for years after you’ve published a good post containing these links.
4. How to Turn Your Blog into a 5-Figure Business
Many newbie bloggers a blog only to give up a few months after that. They lack consistency and discipline because they never had a strategy in mind and weren’t really sure about the ‘why’ behind all this.
I will help you define these before you even your blog. Once you do make some money each month, it’s time to get to the next level.
That means understanding how to write content that drives visitors but also sales, how to encourage Google to rank your site higher, how to negotiate prices with sponsors and earn hundreds of dollars for one article on your blog, how to choose what digital product to build first (and make sure it will be profitable), and much more.
I cover all this because it’s what I’ve personally been through. You’ll get access to all the information in detail but also in an easy to digest way.
Module 8 is all about sponsored posts, which is where the biggest part of my monthly income is coming from.
With Module 9, you’ll be able to create your eBook and online course (just like this one) and earning the big bucks. Here is where the income can double once you add these 2 income streams to your blogging strategy.
Every month, I receive earnings from sales of my products (which I sell via Teachable, this website):
You won’t just become a full-time blogger after completing this course. Follow all the steps and you will earn enough and be able to call yourself a business owner.
