You Can Build a Hobby or You Can Build a Business. You Won’t Find Any Hobbyists Here.
Pssst, before we get started if you haven’t read the Blogging Handbook yet then you definitely should. It explains how we got here with the Blog Simple Framework and it’s a quick read.
You want a blog but not just any blog.
A blog that makes money but not just any money.
A blog that makes GOOD money.
Basically you want a blog business.
You don’t want to tell people you’re a blogger. Bloggers don’t make money.
You want to tell people you’re an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs make money.
Entrepreneurs have impact.
Entrepreneurs help to change the world.
The Blog Simple Framework was created to teach you how to build a business around a blog, not just teach you how to start a blog.
This is about building something that is relevant 5-10 years from now. This is about building something that is flexible and will provide you with options as you continue to grow.
This is the framework used by over 1,600 entrepreneurs.
But what is it?
The Blog Simple Framework 2.0
I’ll be honest. I used to love to teach people how to get the most out of blogging by picking one of seven niches and then using Pinterest to get a lot of traffic.
I can’t teach that anymore because it no longer works.
So if that’s what you’re hoping to get here then this is the wrong place. Maybe someone else can sell you that dream.
Don’t worry, we’ll still be here when you get back.
If you decided to stick around then it’s important that you know that people often start blogs with the dream of getting a lot of people to their site in a short period of time.
This never happens.
Instead, what they find is that they work for months and months with not much to show to the people who ask, “how is that blog thing going?“
Is that really how this is supposed to play out?
What happens if you get 1,000 people to visit your blog in a month. Does that mean something?
Not if you’re trying to make money with ads. However, it’s still 1,000 people.
You should be figuring out how to make money with what you got.
And that’s the approach the Blog Simple Framework 2.0 takes.
It answers a very important question that all entrepreneurs should ask themselves.
How do you make money starting from the day that you launch?
If I were to start a blog today I would pick a niche, understand my Hero, write content specific to them, and promote the content in the places where they are at.
The goal would be to either sell affiliate products or my own offers, but that would only be possible if I write the right content for the right person.
But what about ads?
Here’s the thing, if I follow this plan then over time I’ll get enough pageviews to get into the ad networks of my choice if I decide to, but I shouldn’t have to wait until that day arrives to make money.
The Blog Simple Framework 2.0 is broken down into 8 phases.
As you move through the framework you’ll begin to see how your new online business is being shaped.
Every phase will bring you closer to making money as you actually get to see your progress.
By the end, you’ll not only have your blog setup, but you’ll have the perfect roadmap to continue to grow your business.
Remember, the goal is to have an online business setup that is ready to make money the day that it launches.
I don’t have much patience to wait on making money. I have the feeling you’re the exact same.
Does this mean you’ll make money on day 1? No, I’m not going to pretend that happens for most people.
That’s going to depend on your writing, your understanding of the Hero, and who comes to your site.
However, you will be confident in knowing that things are set up for you to make money on the 1st day and the 100th.
