If you're tired of struggling to monetize your blog…
...Sick of not making any money while blogging
...Burned out on constantly having to hustle for even the slightest gains,
I will show you the exact system successful bloggers use to make money online.
1.Establish Your Own Brand
Yap, that’s right. You must brand yourself. People know you by your brand. Your brand can be your name.
Branding is the key to success for major corporations and small companies. Bloggers are no different. Your brand is your business.
Understanding the fundamentals of branding will help you attain your blog monetization goals.
Let’s start with the basics of what branding is and why it’s important.
Take a minute to think about a major company or corporation – whether it’s a big box retailer or a soft drink company, the company brand is synonymous with the company itself.
Chances are a few things spring to mind that you instantly associate with that corporation, including things like:
- Company logo
- Commercials that stand out
- Company philosophy
In short, each company has its own unique identity that they’ve spent years, sometimes decades, creating.
This is their brand. Pour a soft drink into a red cup or blue cup, and someone will instantly associate it with either Coke or Pepsi, right?
That’s the foundation of branding
Why Is Branding important?
So why is branding so important?
To put it plainly, branding is what helps you stand out from the crowd.
Customers in today’s market have a lot of different options no matter what field you’re in. Your blog readers will become your customers.
Your brand is your opportunity to capture their attention and let them know who they’re doing business with.
When your brand identity is strong, customers will associate it with different principles ranging from trustworthiness to effectiveness to value.
Branding can help build blog loyalty as well.
Basically, it’s what gives your readers a reason to choose you over your competition.

In this day of the internet, your brand must have a central command station and that command station is your blog.
It doesn’t matter how big is social media following is, you must have a blog to establish your brand.
Once people interact with you; be it on social media or in person, you must somewhere to send them so that you can continue the process of KNOW, LIKE, TRUST
2.Build A Beautiful Blog
Relax, it’s not as difficult as you think.
You do not have to be a techie.
In this age of the Internet, you need to engage your readers by choosing a well laid out blog and using the right colors.
The key is to have a blog that is mobile ready and SEO friendly.
Over 90% of internet users are accessing it via mobile. That means your blog readers are reading on their cell phones.
A blog that is not mobile optimised will lead to poor user experience and the readers will not stay for long on your blog. You want them to spent time on your blog soo that they can click on the funnels, lead magnets, membership sites etc so that you can monetize those clicks.
You want your readers to get to know you, to like you and to trust you.
When I started blogging, I started on a Wordpress blog. I quickly learnt that I needed many plugins and other platforms for email marketing, funnel building, lead pages etc.
The expenses add up very quickly.
Wordpress costs about $396 per yr, in addition to that, you will need an autoresponder email system about $29/month, funnel builder such as Clickfunnels $97/month, Webinar Platfrom $67/month , Landing page builder $47/month.
You can see how the costs add up very quickly. I recommend learning from someone who has walked this road before. I teach about blogging and digital marketing in my course; Punch of Pink

3. Create Sales Funnels
Funnels are a series of steps that a lreader walks through so that they can be prequalified.
You want people that are interested in your business.
A funnel sorts out the people for you. Wouldn’t be nice to have people who are interested in a business of product be prequalified, such that you can tell who the true customers are and encourage them to buy?
You can offer upsells and downsells using funnels. Meaning, if someone has bought a product from you, before they check out, you are able to offer them a product or service of a higher value(upsell) or lower value(downsell).
Yap, funnels will do that for you.
They do 90% of the work on autodrive
These are the tidbits that successful bloggers don’t share.
Creating funnels requires a certain level of expertise and the right platform..
Punch Of Pink has premade funnels that you can easily incorporate into your blog without paying for an additional fees to a funnel builder.
I use funnels to market clean living products to over 40 countries around the world. If you are interested in learning more about this, schedule a phone call with me by choosing a time slot below.
4.Record Engaging Webinars
A webinar is an online presentation that can be live or recorded.
Webinars help people learn about your business opportunity and your product..
If you are in the crotchet niche, you can record yourself making various crotchet designs and show people what they would be getting if they enrolled in your crotcheting course.
They are almost like Facebook lives, the only difference is that you have control because these are located in your central post i.e your blog
As we know, the Facebook algorithm keeps changing and very few people will see your lives.
Can you imagine having a worldwide audience on the internet? That is what a webinar hosted on your blog will offer.
You can have a webinar playing even when you are asleep. These are called EverGreen Webinars. Imagine having a sales person explain the benefits or uses of your product or service to your readers. Anytime, all the time.
That is what a webinar does.
Top bloggers utilize this strategy to give information to thousands of readers at a go. It is literally like having a TV commercial hosted on your blog. I teach how to record webinars on Punch Of Pink
5.Talk With Your Readers Via Email
It takes about 7 to 8 exposures before somebody buys something from you.
The key is to figure out how to deliver the same information on different days.
This is where email marketing comes in.
When people visit your central command station i.e your blog, have them sign up for an email list.
They could sign up for the email list by way of a funnel or at lead magnet on your blog.
Once they sign up for email, you can send them emails giving the more information about your products, services, their uses and benefits and any new offers that your company may have.
Email marketing can get very expensive.
Most platforms will charge you based on how many emails you send.
The cheapest I have seen so far is about $29 a month and they only let you send 1000 emails and thereafter you are charged per email.
The money is in the email list , start to build your email list today.
6.Analyse Your Data Using Powerful Analytics
Anytime you do something, you want to make sure that you are getting results.
On the internet, the way to know you are getting results is to use powerful analytics such as the Facebook Pixel, Pinterest Tag or Google Tag to collect data.
Add Pixels to your website so that you trackk track progress.
That way, you can tell how many people visited a certain page of your blog or watched a webinar or opted into one of your funnels.
This will help you keep track of the visitors on your blogand make changes so as to monetize your blog. You can promote the pages or topics that are getting more blog visitors and hence increase the revenue from your blog.
7.Use Chatbots To Engage With Your Readers Online
Chatbots are those little boxes that you see pop up on a website or on Facebook whereby you put in a question and get an instant response.
The truth is, you will not be awake at 3am to talk to the customer from Australia who wants to make buy your homemade soap but has a question that needs to be answered before she makes up her mind to click on the buy option.
Again, the top bloggers know and use all the above tactics to monetize their blogs.
8.Create Online Courses
Online courses are one of the easiest ways to make money via blogging.
You have a talent.
Your blog is in a certain niche, write about the niche and show your mastery.
Creating an online course is as easy as recording videos on your computer and uploading them to a membership site.
A membership site is a part of your blog that is created to be access only after a reader has made an online payment.
Membership sites that allow you to intergrate payment processors so that you can sell online courses usually start at $67/month.
I love that Builderall incoporates a membership are in the $49/month plan.Start your free trial here.
