By now, you have a plan and a target market. It’s finally time to decide what to blog about and what products you will sell on your blog. Now, we’re getting to the fun part of blogging. This is where we dig into how to make money with your blog.
Let’s look at this 2-step system:
Step 1: Identify a Problem
As a blogger, you need insight into the wants and needs of your perfect follower. You chat with her on Facebook, answer her email questions, respond to the comments she leaves on your blog, and might work with her one-on-one.
What is their biggest problem or challenge?
What is it they need the most help with right now?
This is what you should blog about, as well as create a product to solve that problem. By now, you already have a built-in audience. It’s a simple step on how to make money with your blog.
Step 2: Create the Solution
I recommend writing blog posts about the problem. This includes stories you have, as well as solutions. When you blog, only give partial solutions. The products you create will give detailed, complete solutions.
It’s now time to put your complete solutions together in a way that will make sense to your audience. Will you…
- Write an ebook?
This is one of my favorite entry-level options for my readers.
- Create an online course?
Online courses allow you to offer comprehensive, step-by-step solutions for your perfect follower.
- Will you offer a membership site?
When you include your ebooks and online courses, you can’t beat the flexibility of a membership site.
- Offer a group coaching program?
Add personal time with you to your membership site and you’ve got an instant group coaching program. Not only that but you’ve dramatically upped the value (and cost) as well.
Your choice will depend largely on the scope of the solution. Is it a simple answer that can be explained in a few pages or is it a complex issue that requires several weeks of work?
In review, you need to find out your perfect follower’s problem and create a solution. It’s really that simple. Just follow the 2-step system on how to make money with your blog.

Is anyone opening your emails? Seriously! If no one’s opening your email, then no one is reading your emails.

There’s good reason for it, too. If your subscribers aren’t

What do super-successful business owners all have in common? Wondering what it takes … how to be a successful entrepreneur? It’s not experience. It’s not extraordinary skills.

The problem with information in books at the bookstore is that many times it is not specific enough. I don’t want to know everything there is to
