Welcome back, blogging ladies! Today on the Boss Lady Bloggers podcast, I’m diving into how I could have accelerated my blogging income and what you can learn from my journey.

Back in 2018, I started with nothing but an old MacBook in my aunt’s basement. Despite the cold and the outdated tech, I was determined to start a blog. For two years, I poured my heart into a lifestyle blog, focusing on affiliate marketing and ads, but I didn’t make a single dollar. It was disheartening, and I nearly quit until I hired a blogging business coach who changed everything.

The Turning Point

My coach wasn’t just any coach; she was featured in Forbes and ran a successful travel blog. She opened my eyes to the true aspects of building a successful blogging business. She helped me see the gaps in my knowledge and the importance of investing in learning more than just free articles online.

Blogging Mistakes and Lessons Learned

I started with a broad lifestyle blog that lacked focus. The struggle with WordPress, SEO, branding, and marketing was real. But as a newbie, I didn’t even know what I needed to know. I took the first scary but exciting steps, driven by the desire to build something of my own.

Investing in Growth

Realizing the gaps in my knowledge, I invested in a coach. Free articles only got me so far, and I needed guidance to navigate the complexities of blogging as a business. This investment led to a significant change in my approach and results.

Niche Down and Get Technical

I learned the hard way that monetization requires traffic, and SEO is more than just writing—it’s about optimizing your entire website. I also discovered the importance of having a clear business strategy beyond just affiliate marketing and ads.

Creating My Own Products

With my coach’s help, I shifted from promoting other products to creating and selling my own offers. This pivot was crucial in earning more than just a few extra bucks—it was about building a thriving business.

Marketing Simplified

I adopted a straightforward marketing strategy using Pinterest and Instagram, which were simpler platforms back then. This simplicity in marketing helped me land my first three clients and set the stage for consistent growth.

Blogging Results That Speak Volumes

From making $32,000 during the pandemic in 2020 to hitting six figures in 2023, my earnings increased each year. This growth was a testament to the power of persistence, continuous learning, and taking action.

Key Takeaways for You:

  1. Start with what you have: Don’t wait for the perfect setup.
  2. Persistence is key: Keep pushing through the tough times.
  3. Fill knowledge gaps: Invest in learning to avoid common pitfalls.
  4. Simple marketing works: Focus on one or two platforms that work best for you.
  5. Create your own products: Offer unique value to your audience.
  6. Target a specific audience: Solve problems for an ideal customer.
  7. Rebrand and redesign if necessary: A professional look can drive sales.
  8. Offer services: High-ticket services can provide a significant initial income.
  9. Quick action leads to results: Implement changes and strategies swiftly.
  10. Growth is possible: Your earnings can increase each year with improvement.
