Do People Make Money Blogging
Is Blogging Still A Thing?
I’ve seen a lot of chatter online asking if blogging still works, Do People really make money blogging? I have to say yes, people really do make money blogging and I’m proof that blogging is still a thing. Affiliate Marketers really benefit the most by blogging because they are able to strategically place their offers throughout the content they create, earning them a pretty good income every month
The problem is, most people think they’re just going to buy a domain and some hosting, start a blog and just make money with sponsorship and advertising. Yes these are ways you can make money blogging but unless you know the proper way to monetize your content and have a good understanding of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) then you are really just spinning your wheels.
Honestly that doesn’t have to be the case for you because you wound up here and I am going to show you the same exact training I used to create a consistent income online and how I achieved success in just under a year. I know a year sounds like a long time but when your talking about how to make money blogging and starting a business online it’s really not that long.
Think about it like building a skyscraper. Without a good foundation your building is probably going to topple over once it gets to a certain level. The same thing applies to building a business online. A proper foundation is required to make the business lasting and sustainable and that’s what I am here to teach you.
How To Get Started Blogging
Blogging is just one of the ways an affiliate marketer can make money online and probably the most common. Once you’ve established some content and traffic you can think about sponsorship and Advertising space but the first thing you need to do is pick a niche and start adding unique and helpful content to your website. Some of my colleagues embed their You Tube content into their blogs as well, which has had a very positive impact on the success of their websites.
There are only 4 steps that every successful affiliate marketer needs to get started and I’m going to talk about each step in detail. I will also be talking about some Free ways for you to get started so you can bootstrap your affiliate marketing business and ultimately make some money.

Imagine making a full time income just by sharing content about something you are passionate about. Your interest is called a niche and the possibilities are endless. Do you like gardening? How about going to the beach, Traveling, or how about sports, maybe Golf or health and wellness? The possibilities are endless and the market is wide open, if you can think of it and have knowledge about it then you can build a business around it.
I run 3 websites in various niches and the training I offer can teach you to do the same. Not only do the same but conquer that niche and get page 1 rankings consistently without having to pay for your position in the search engines.
