Here's some food for thought...
 
Can I Make Over $1000 a Month Consistently From a Blog?

[Written Exclusively for the Copywriter's Collective Community]

This is a question that gets asked quite frequently. However, making money with a blog and getting traffic from it are not all they seem.

Let me explain...

A lot of newbs to the blogging world think that if they start blogging like crazy they'll get a ton of traffic and eventually make a ton of money.

They'll start using Google Adsense ads, or try their hand at affiliate marketing and start making money.

To be honest with you, the process is a lot harder than that.

First, you have to decide on what niche you are going to focus on and how you are going to monetize your blog. That's obvious. But how will you determine your success?

If you go off of how much money you make from your blog, you won't get very far, because chances are you can make spurts of money that won't last as a long term revenue stream that you can count on.

THE WAY TO MAKE IT CONSISTENT:

So how are you going to be able to determine your success on your blog?

Well, you are going to want to gain long-term trust that'll get people to come back to you again and again. That way, you'll be able to make money consistently and have posts that will draw traffic for years on end.

How?

1. You need to map out a sales funnel. And in that sales funnel you will weed out all of the people that aren't interested in what you have to offer with your content. You only want the folks that are interested in your business. That's a quality list you can market to.

2. Once you get those people into your funnel or landing on your page, you'll want to keep them with awesome content. You need write and produce material that will want them to stay with you. You will then ask the prospect to take the next step. You can see an example of that at several places on this blog post about building an email list linked below.

3. You will then need to assess where in your process you lost your readers and followers. If you don't get prospects to take the next step in your funnel, then you need to figure out why they aren't taking that next step.

Once you clearly understand how to get and retain readers, customers and clients long term, you can then start to depend on the money that comes in.

On Instagram, people follow celebrities, get DIY inspiration and are visually transported to new places - while on Facebook, the primary appeal is connecting with family and friends.

According to Facebook IQ Researcher Vicki Molina-Estolano, the main finding of the report was that Facebook better satisfies people’s need for empowerment, recognition and connection, while Instagram more strongly fulfills their desire for fun, relaxation and discovery.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO BUILD AN ONLINE LANGUAGE COURSE - WELL, HERE'S HOW TO DO IT...

Since I’m an online teacher and I have my Master’s in Education Technology, I have some valuable insights as to how you can do this.
First, find out if there is a definite crowd of people that want to learn the language you desire to teach. If you know where these people hang out, you might want to ask them what their particular needs are.

While you are doing that, you’ll probably find out who your competition is and how well developed their education system is and method of delivery. This will tell you how much of a battle you’re going to have to fight to gain your market share.

After you’ve done a lot of research, you need to figure out things like how you are going to deliver your course material to your students. There are a couple of online delivery systems you can get and they will charge you per person that signs up for your course.

You can get a lot of information on educational delivery systems here:
http://www.learningrevolution.net/sell-online-courses/
You will want an interactive site that charges you a little per month per person. I’ve stumbled across some great education delivery systems just by surfing the Internet. There are more and more of them every day and they are quite affordable.

Once you figure that out you’ll want to design the course. If you are in a hurry, get a couple of text books from Amazon and see how the language is taught. If you aren’t an educator that understands Instructional Design, this would be the best way to go.

At any rate, you’ll need to design your course and materials before you start teaching. (Yep, there’s a reason why teachers do lesson planning 1 to 2 weeks ahead of schedule.)

However, when you design a course, you’ll also want to outline the entire thing before you start creating the content, video lessons, etc.
Despite all of the course delivery systems you see online like Lynda and Udemy, it is not easy to create courses on every subject. Language follows a certain syntax and you have to be sensitive to the pedagogy (fancy educator word for “method”) involved in the process.

Do not be deceived by a lot of the information type products you see out there. I have seen some video courses and online products that were great (like Jon Morrow’s Guest Blogger course) and I have seen some expensive courses that really sucked.

Anyway, I hope you haven’t been discouraged by this, but there is a pant-load of work to be done on the front end if you really want to do this.

God Bless, and Happy New Year!

While the majority of protestors are peaceful, seems there are some groups who are purposefully escalating — just like when civil rights leaders MLK Jr. and Gandhi held to nonviolence while other activists escalated beyond their vision. The goal of this post is discussion. :)
