Have you ever thought of working from home or starting a side hustle for an extra stream of income? I’ve been doing it for years! Read my story.
How it all started
I went to college when I was 18, like most of my friends, and I always assumed I’d work a regular job. I picked music teaching because I love music, and I loved the idea of summers off. Who doesn’t want to have some time off and structure their own day? I graduated, got married, and lived that life for a couple years until I got pregnant with my first daughter. Did you know that daycare is EXPENSIVE? I would be handing over my entire teaching paycheck in exchange for childcare. No thank you.
I had started blogging as a hobby before having kids and eventually realized it was taking up enough of my time that I should learn to monetize it, or throw in the towel. Over the span of many years I learned that other people were making money working from home too. It’s definitely possible to turn your hobby into a money making machine.
How can you make money blogging?
People ask me me all the time how I create a monthly income from my side hustle. The answer? Have MANY forms of income going if you want to blog for a living.
- Sponsored posts- Seek out companies that will pay you to write about the things you already love.
- Affiliate links- Make a percentage of the sale of products you link to on your website.
- Ad networks- Have ads placed on your site that pay you based on traffic and clicks.
- Sell something- Create your own product or get involved in network marketing to build a business from products you use and love.
Is your head hurting just reading about these different ways of making money? Mine did too for a long time, but I learned all about it and wrote the basics down for you.
I have two free resources for you! No strings attached, I would love to share with you how I have gone from being a SAHM to a WAHM and am making great money doing so, using the four methods for making money above.
What are your resources?
My first resource
My first free resource is a 50 page eBook detailing my experience with making money blogging. I’ve been blogging for 7 years, and blogging with intention to make money for 3 years. I make an average of $1,000 a month and that number rises all the time. I know what I’m doing and I’m glad to share that information with you for free. I’ve bought so many eBooks for hundreds of dollars over the years, and I’ll be honest…mine is at least as informative as those are. I cover everything you need to know AFTER you’ve nailed down your URL. I get straight to the point on how to nail down sponsored posts by reverse pitching and cold pitching, with real life examples.
My second resource
My second resource details 50 tips on how you can integrate an MLM into your blog or brand in a completely non-spammy way. I wrote a post once that MLM moms needed to stop trying to sell me diet shit on Facebook. I even covered a section on selling things in my eBook above and talked about how most people actually LOSE money when they sign up for this type of business. I still stand by those statements, but when done the smart way, network marketing can be an amazing source of income for your business.
In this free resource, I offer you access to a Facebook group where you can listen to an hour long Zoom call where other bloggers who have incorporated network marketing into their business plans detail how they’re making amazing income. I’m talking $15k, $30k, even $100k a year just from this one residual income stream. If you’ve joined an MLM before and it’s not for you…give this call a listen and see what you think of this opportunity.
