Blogging is easy! Blogging is fun! Blogging is a great way to earn passive income!
- I didn’t mean to make that rhyme.
- This is the bullshit that everyone tries to feed you.
Blogging is easy is misleading and passive income is kind of a fairy tale.
It’s not easy to build a money-making blog and if you aren’t working to maintain a successful blog, well, you won’t have much passive income for very long.
Don’t get me started on “passive income”…anyways…
Blogging is fun is mostly true, but it’s not always fun.
I’ve been on the roller coaster that comes with chasing pageviews to earn ad money.
I’ve also watched our 2,000+ members go through the drastic ups and downs of Pinterest changes and Google changes. It’s painful to watch and I know it’s painful to go through.
Imagine the frustration of working for months on end to make it into a premium ad network only to miss that 30-day pageviews requirement by a couple of thousand pageviews and then having to wait another 30 days.
And maybe another.
That feeling of knowing that you’re close to FINALLY making money with this thing that your friends and family aren’t sure about only to have that money slip through your fingers.
I have 3 blogs in AdThrive right now which requires 100,000 pageviews per month to get in and then 50,000 pageviews per month for other sites that you wish to get in.
None of them are in the how to make money niche.
So I understand the time it takes to build a blog up and get it into a premium ad network.
Every day of your analytics going up or down is jarring. Your mood becomes affected by it.
It’s really not a fun experience at all.
I understand why people quit, and in fact, I don’t understand why more don’t.
But here’s the thing…
I don’t want you to quit. I don’t want you to get whiplash from looking at Google Analytics.
I’m going to teach you how to build a blog that puts you in control of the money you make.
Not the ad companies. Not the Google. Not the Pinterest.
(Yes, I said “the Google” and “the Pinterest” on purpose because it sounds funnier.)
You’re going to treat your blog as a business and when business is open that means you should be trying to make money.
Do you know what sucks?
Being excited about your blog, telling your friends and family, and then having them ask how things are going months later and you just don’t want to talk about it.
It’s embarrassing. It’s devastating. It’s not how you want to feel.
Oh, if you’re here and you really don’t know my story and how the Blog Simple Framework came to be then take a break from this page and go check it out.
Don’t worry, it will lead you right back here.
You know my story now. At least I’m going to assume you do since you read the thing above.
I conquered the Keto niche and had all of the traffic and money I could have ever wanted ($180,000 in 7 months) from just ONE site.
I assumed I had nothing to worry about.
But Google and Pinterest made changes that pulled the rug right out from under me.
I could have fought my way back to the top of Google search results. I could have kept working at Pinterest.
But I knew I would be constantly waiting for the next algorithm change to hit and take it all away.
I didn’t want to live like that. I’d almost rather get a regular job than find myself trying to compete neck and neck with large media companies that have TEAMS dedicated to content creation and SEO.
I want a business that I’m in control of.
Where I don’t stress about how many people are coming to the site every day because I know that I’m doing the things that will make more and more of the right people come every single day.
I know this is what you want, too.
The New Blog Model
SEO and Pinterest are still part of the game plan. Don’t worry, I’ll teach you how to do both of those REALLY well.
In fact, I’ll show you how to get the most out of a number of different platforms.
But more importantly, I’m going to teach you how to build a business that is sustainable regardless of what Google and Pinterest do.
When I stopped focusing on ALL of the pageviews and started focusing on getting the right people to the site and onto my email list, I started to take control back.
And I started making money. It was like money was just attracted to me.
This is What Happens with Most Bloggers
They believe that the first tier of earning money is to get enough pageviews to get into an ad network.
They believe that once they get there, then they’ll start thinking about affiliate sales and maybe even their own product.
There are two major problems with this thinking:
- It takes time to build up traffic that you get consistently enough to get you into one of the premium ad networks
- When you only focus on writing about the big topics you start to bring in people that won’t care about clicking on affiliate links or purchasing your offers so once you get into an ad network it’s almost like you have to start over again with a new strategy to bring in the right people
The idea of switching gears makes you panic because you have this ad money now and you want it to grow every month, right?
So while you know that it is smart to be thinking about creating some type of an offer, you’re also at the same time terrified of taking your eye off the ad money prize!
You’re chained to one revenue stream. You’re stuck no matter what else you try.
So I decided to flip it.
Rather than ads being your first goal, you should be thinking about how you can start to make money with every person that comes to your site the day that you launch it.
I am in no way saying that you should never try to put ads on your site. It’s nice money when you can get it and and I have nothing at all against it.
I have multiple blogs that are in AdThrive and I’m not complaining about the monthly paycheck!
What I’m saying is that if you want water, you shouldn’t have to wait 6 months until it rains. Go bring the water to you!
And what you’ll learn with Blog Simple Framework will get you there. I know this because I just spent 10 months testing all of it with our home decor site Bogoten.
And That Test Is Important
I’m going to call out all of the big time bloggers right now that are telling you about the amazing traffic they are getting from Pinterest or from Google and offering to teach you how to do it just like they did.
There’s one problem with what they are telling you.
It doesn’t really work the same way anymore.
I don’t start or restart new businesses for fun (Ok, it’s a little bit fun), I do it to put ourselves (yep, the whole team has to restart with me) back in your shoes and make sure that what I am teaching you still works.
It’s why I have completely changed our approach to blogging.
As dreadful as the ups and downs of traffic are, it was relatively simple back in the day to get into a good ad network. It made perfect sense to then start up another site and get it into an ad network, too.
And then maybe another.
But Pinterest doesn’t work the same anymore. You don’t get the same traffic there. And Google takes months before you’ll start to see traffic.
The steps to be really good at Pinterest and Google are easy to follow and they don’t change very much.
The execution is not as easy and the outcome is never really in your control.
No one wants to feel out of control, certainly not when it comes to their business.
You saw what happened to me when all I thought about was pageviews.
My wife asking for grocery money? My brother going home to Florida to live with our parents? Me asking to borrow money from a friend?
If I’d been thinking from the beginning about how to make money before we got into that ad company I would have saved myself from some seriously low points.
I could have been focusing on affiliate sales. I could have been planning an offer for that massive audience I was building.
And that’s why blogging has to change.
How Does It Work?
That’s a good question.
But let me ask you another question first.
How do you create a blog that is flexible enough to allow you to make money with ads, affiliate marketing, services, or products? Or maybe all of them?!
That means a blog that gets a lot of traffic over time if you want it to and one that brings in the right people?
It’s possible and the Blog Simple Framework will show you how. The key is understanding what you want to do and what kind of content to create to make it happen.
This is a complete blogging system that will get you set up for gaining traffic month after month, selling affiliate products or your own offers, and building an audience that loves you.
Now, it’s quite possible to think that this must be pretty complex and that you will get overwhelmed. Nobody wants to buy a course only to feel like it’s too much for them.
If the goal is to build a successful blog then that means you need a lot of tiny wins along the way and that’s what the Blog Simple Framework will provide for you.
In fact, it’s just 6 modules.
We’ve created courses with 100s of lessons trying to be as thorough as possible.
With the Blog Simple Framework we’ve taken our knowledge of building successful blog businesses and distilled everything into the stuff that you need to know.
There are a total of 6 modules in the Blog Simple Framework.
Module 1: Choosing the Right Niche and Understanding It
You might not know what niche you want to start a blog in but this module will help you.
You might know what niche you’re going to start a blog in and this module will make sure you truly understand it meaning you know exactly what type of content you should avoid.
Or maybe you already have a blog and you’ve got the ball rolling. In that case, don’t skip this module! It will help you tighten things up to ensure you’re getting the most out of your niche.
Module 2: Finding Affiliate Products and Offer Opportunities
How do you give yourself the best chance of making money with your blog from the very start?
You have something available that people can buy.
In this module, you’ll learn how to find the best affiliate products for your niche and also the keys to finding the right offer ideas you can create when you are ready to.
Module 3: Your New No Backlink SEO + Content Strategy
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is very important but it’s way too easy to get lost in the weeds.
In this module, you’ll put together the perfect SEO and content strategy for your blog.
You’ll understand how to find the perfect keywords that give you the best chance of ranking quickly along with planning out how to tackle the 3 content types:
- Big Net
- Small Net
Module 4: Mastering the Content Triad
This refers to the 3 content types right above.
There is no point in wasting your time writing any other type of content that won’t benefit your blog.
In this module, you’ll not only gain a better understanding of each of the content types, but you’ll see how to actually write them so people read AND share them.
Module 5: Your New Blogging Routine – Promotion, Promotion, Promotion
Traffic is the name of the game, right?
While you’ve already mastered the necessary SEO to rank in Google you still want to get people to your blog sooner rather than later.
That means you need to get out into the world and promote your content.
In this module, you’ll learn how to get the most out of platforms such as Pinterest, Reddit, Quora, and YouTube so that you are focusing on getting traffic from day 1.
Module 6: Learning How to Change Your Own Oil
Things don’t always go smoothly and every journey is unique. That means you need to be able to see trends within your business and understand the necessary adjustments you should make.
In this module, you’ll learn what to do when things don’t seem to be going your way and what you should focus on when things are really starting to pick up.
Running a business shouldn’t be filled with guesswork.
Giving You Only What You Need
I honestly tried to come up with more but when we sat down and looked at the core of what was needed to build a successful blog for ads and affiliate marketing, this was it.
And remember, when the time comes that you want to create your own offers, your blog will be ready for that as well.
And, I almost forgot the best part!
You’ll also get access to our legendary community of thousands of bloggers who are all on the same path as you are. And I’m there, too, answering questions and posing thought-provoking scenarios when I’m feeling philosophical.
Why the Bloggers that Fail ALWAYS Fail
The sad truth is that more bloggers fail than succeed.
The reason why the ones that fail do fail is because they don’t have the right structure in place.
They blog randomly hoping that eventually it will get them to the goal, but it doesn’t have to be like that.
When you know exactly what you are doing and exactly what to expect then doesn’t that make the job easier?
Instead of hoping that things are going to work, you’ll know that you’re doing the right thing and can easily make adjustments when needed.
The Blog Simple Framework sets you up with not only the structure but the tools to help you make the right decisions as your site grows.

The Usual Questions
Here are the answers to the most common questions that we receive. If you don’t see your question here and you need an answer do not hesitate to email me (email@example.com).
Will this really work for me?
There are two answers to this question.
The first answer is that yes, this will work for you. You’ll be given the tools to discover the right niche for you, find the right keywords, create the right content, and promote your blog in the right way.
The second answer is a question. Will you work for yourself?
The question isn’t if the Blog Simple Framework works or not. It’s been proven 100s of times by our students.
The question is how much are you willing to invest in yourself and make it happen?
How long until I start making money?
Excellent question and one that should be asked with a course like this. There is no definitive answer but just know that the Blog Simple Framework was built around a simple question:
What would I need to do to get my blog ready to make money on day 1?
Go back and look at the modules in the course. Notice how they don’t start with “first go find some web hosting“? The reason why is because I want you to start thinking about how this blog is going to make money from the second you have an idea.
I want you to see the possibilities in front of you so you can plan around them.
Can I ask you questions? Am I in this alone?
Yes, you can ask me and anyone else in the Pocket Business community a question and we are all happy to help.
And hell no you aren’t in this alone. The goal is to see you succeed so that means I live inside the community.
This is not the last time we talk and then you get handed off to some account managers.
I’m going to greet you at the door, walk you to your table, cook your food, serve your food, and then thank you for coming in. I also happen to own the place.
