Nature is neutral. If you do the same things that other successful people have done, you will inevitably enjoy the same success they have.
Today I will find people who make money online, learn how exactly they make money, and what is most important, we will scrutinize their income reports in order to implement their strategies and to create our own income streams. Let’s go!
What is good is that we don’t need to reinvent the wheel (everything has already been invented). So, let’s find people who have already done what we want to do.
- Pat Flynn – SmartPassiveIncome.Com
Pat Flynn is a famous and well-known blogger. Last month he made
What is this blog about?
Pat has a lot of blog posts on making money online:
Generally speaking, what he does is he writes posts, makes videos, podcasts, helps other people to learn how to make money online. But how did he make $127,787 in one month?
Let’s see his income report!
As we see, he tells people how to make money online, and makes money by promoting other people’s products and services related to this niche. Pat makes most of his money by promoting Bluehost.
(By the way, I know that Bluehost is a reliable web hosting company, I’m personally using it for my websites, and if you want to start a blog with Bluehost- go here). Maybe, you will make more money than Pat!
A year ago I was reading Pat’s blog, I got inspired, and decided to start my own blog. I clicked his affiliate link, bought web hosting from Bluehost, and Pat made, I think, $100 from one click. I am happy, Pat is happy. I hope, you understand how it works.
Thank you, Pat! You inspired us a lot! It’s time to go further!
2. Matthew Woodward – http://matthewwoodward.co.uk
Matthew is a well-known internet marketing blogger. He writes about SEO, Youtube marketing, starting a blog,
Matthew has already made $736,608 from his blog, and he’s making $20-30 thousands every month:
How? By promoting other people’s products and services:
Logos, articles, SEO services, web hosting offers, and so on!
Comparing to Pat, Matthew is using a little bit different strategy. He preferes to promote a lot of different affiliate offers, and Pat makes most of his money by promoting Bluehost.
Ok, that’s fine. These guys are professional marketers. Good for them! But what if your passion is, let’s say, cooking. Can you turn your passion into business? Of course! You can start a blog about cooking!
3) PinchOfYum.Com – Lindsey and Bjork.
Pinch of Yum is a food blog. They write, they cook, and they take pictures of delicious food.
There are a lot of recipes for different needs – gluten free, superfoods, lightened up, vegan and others:
What we, the marketers, are interested in, is income reports:
Not bad, right? Most is the income comes from AdThrive. AdThrive is similar to Google AdSense. In order to monetize your blog with AdThrive or Goolge AdSense and to make $20,000 you have to have tons of traffic.
I am the subscriber of their e-mail list, and they are using an interesting strategy. Take a good look at this screenshot:
It’s pretty interesting, isn’t it? What messages would you send to your subscribers if you were in cooking niche? Recipes with affiliate links to Amazon? Or reviews of kitchen devices?
You see, they send me messages about blogging, marketing, growing traffic and so on.
Do you get it? Even if your blog is in cooking, fitness, or parenting niche, you still can make tons of money by referring people to your “How To Start A Blog” page and by promoting your favorite web hosting company.
It seems that if you have a passion in life, you can turn it into a successful online business.
Let’s say, you are passionate about cooking. Let’s go to Amazon and search for “cooking”:
There are a lot of kitchen devices, books related to this niche. And if you have a blog you can join Amazon affiliate program (it’s free), and you can make money online as an affiliate marketer.
Or maybe, you know how to get rid of depression? Why not to start a blog, and why not to help other people? Are there products and services related to this niche? Let’s go to Google and search for “depression affiliate program”:
I hope, now you understand how it works.
If you have a passion in life, you can start your own blog, you can start a Youtube channel, and you can start promoting other people’s products and services.
I hope, you got inspired, and you believe that what other successful people have done, YOU WILL do as well. All that’s left is to do the same things, they did.
