Your Blog & Website: Build Multiple Income Streams

l be sharing my best resources from my 9 years in online media. 

It's not a big secret that bloggers make money, its just not always obvious to know what you should be doing to set yourself up for success. I am sharing all the details I've learned over the years and few case studies of other successful bloggers willing to share all the details on how they earn income from their blogs.  

We will be examining common income methods, and resources from bloggers/influencers who are making money online. We will be reviewing in detail the tried and true methods to help support your site. 

1. Create Content that solves a problem in your verticle. 

2. Attract readers with your content and promote it into other channels, not just your blog. 
3. Build engagement with your readers, ask questions, answer everyone.
4. How blogs make money. Start making money from your conversations with your readers from one or more income methods noted below.

The Design Blogger Conference 2017: Last year I wrote a full report on what happened at conference 2017 ( here ).  One of my favorite speakers was
Laurel Bern, who knocked it out of the park with her talk sharing the steps that she took to take her blog from underperforming, with no connections to creating highly profitable site selling products and a robust readership that has allowed her to become a full-time blogger.  Whether growing your design business or online presence the formula and principals are the same. " Make 100k + A Year Selling Interior Design"

Creating Income from your blog is always the pressing question on any blogger's consciousness.  Having a site is expensive.  You need a professional site that is designed aesthetically and for function, you also need a reliable host, and all the tools and time that go into maintaining a Blog, this costs money. You want to be able to offset the costs.  

I love how some bloggers/ influencers have been publishing their earnings every month for us to see what works best and what doesn't. I pour over the information like a box of chocolates.  I just love the transparency and the willingness to help others by the bloggers who prepare and share these reports. Read and learn from them when you find them.

If you are an Influencer/  blogger, I wanted to share with you a partial Tool Box of potential websites and networks for you that I have found helpful for creating income.  You don't have to spend money to initiate some of these resources. Most have minimum balances before payout, but they are great programs to get started, and some will even pay for just clicks and not just for purchases.  I am no expert, but I want to share with you a few that are tried and true.

We're going to take a deep dive into AFFILIATE MARKETING, SPONSORED CONTENT,  how to acquire these opportunities, and ADVERTISING best practices.

This just the tip of the iceberg.  Attend our workshop at the  Design Bloggers Conference this March 4-6th in Los Angeles, California. You will walk away with an action plan and tips for the new year, new blog, and your continued online success. 

Hearing the words " passive income " is also a little misleading.  It takes a lot of work to develop a large amount of traffic needed to be successful at earning money from your site. But with a little planning and focus, you can increase your traffic, newsletter subscriptions, social following and ideally, your earnings through sponsored content, advertising, and affiliate marketing today.
