Now that we’ve debunked some myths about making money online lets dive into what thing you need to make money online. It doesn’t make sense to try and make money if you don’t have these things.
1. A Blog
Hopefully, this one was obvious to you. You aren’t going to make money blogging if you don’t have a blog.
If you don’t have a blog then here is a nice little post for you about how to start a blog. You can get one set up in just a couple of minutes which is pretty awesome.
However, don’t mistake the easy setup with easy results. Getting a blog up and running is easy but getting content that people love and finding the right audience are going to take a bit of work.
2. Content That Rocks
Getting a blog is simple and that is where most people stop. They think that simply having a blog is enough to start making some extra money, but it isn’t. The hard work begins when you start writing content. You can’t just fill your blog up with the hope that people will find it magically and read it.
The content needs to be good. The content needs to provide value to your reader. If it doesn’t provide any value then you will see that people visit your site and never return.
3. Relationships With Influencers
I’m a very independent person.
I truly believe that I can do anything on my own if I put my mind to it. However, that doesn’t mean I should be doing everything on my own. No matter what topic you decide to blog about there will be others blogging about it as well. You might see them as competition, but you shouldn’t.
In fact, you should treat them as allies. A rising tide raises all ships.
To run a successful blog that makes money you will need to create relationships with other bloggers and grow your tribe. These relationships will help your brand and increase your traffic.
Don’t be scared to reach out to people when you write a new post. If you include another blogger in one of your posts then let them know.
I wrote a post on Tailwind vs BoardBooster and let Summer Tannhauser know because I thought it pertained to her audience. She enjoyed it, commented on it, and tweeted it out.
That opened Obstacle.co to a whole new audience and why is that important? Well, take a look at the graph to see:
What’s going on here? You are looking at a graph of pageviews for the month of June (the orange line) and the first four days of July (the blue line). In four days, July’s pageviews have already surpassed all of June’s.
This doesn’t happen without networking.
Build relationships on social media, comment on other people’s sites and participate in forums and groups. You are not building a dynasty in a vacuum.
One of the great things about the Billionaire Blog Club is the relationships that are being formed by members.
4. Authority Status
Your blog is your platform. It’s where you share your knowledge and create a brand. Over time you want people to think of your blog when they think of a specific topic.
Authority status is a term you will see me throw around a lot on this site. What does it mean? It means that when someone thinks of a topic and they have a question, they think of going to you for the answer.
Whatever topic you write about, you want people to think that you are making complete sense because you are an authority on the subject.
5. A Tribe
This is probably the most important thing you will need to make money. Your Tribe is similar to your audience, but they go deeper. Your Tribe is the people that buy everything you create, open every email you send, and tell the world about everything you do.
They are your True Fans and the people that will help your empire grow.
It is important that you are always in communication with your tribe. The best way to do this is through an email list.
But isn’t email old-fashioned? It is, but it’s also the best way to keep in touch with your tribe. Not everyone is on Twitter or Facebook and those that are probably won’t see your message.
Everybody has email and everybody checks their email constantly.
If you want to really make money with your blog, you need to create a mailing list using one of the billions of email service providers out there.
