In this guide I’ll walk you through my step-by-step process for starting and growing a profitable blog.
Good day! My name is Brent Hale and I’m the guy behind Income Addon. But, of course, we’re not here to talk about me or this website… we’re here to talk about you.
If you’ve found your way onto this page then I’m guessing that at some point the thought of starting a blog or making money online has crossed your mind.
No doubt, too, that along with that thought has come some disbelief and doubt that you—or anyone else for that matter—can actually make money blogging.
In fact, a lot of people compare building a profitable blog to being some kind of impossible task…
I’m here to tell you that you can make money blogging, though. I know you can, because I’ve done it. And, I’ve done it with multiple blogs & websites, in multiple niches.
It has changed my life…
Through blogging, I have been able to make enough money so that my wife can stay home with our son (and we have another boy on the way!), take my family on multiple vacations, have the flexibility of a schedule I create, and create financial freedom for my family.
And, if I can do it, so can you…
So, this page was made by me, for you, in order to provide you with a complete step-by-step process of building a profitable blog.
I. Picking a Topic & Setting Up Your Blog
A lot of people go out and start a random blog on a free blogging platform like Blogger, or Tumblr, or the free version of WordPress and, if you’re just looking to start a blog for fun, that’s okay.
However, if you want to make money as a blogger, you need to A) focus on a certain topic (preferably one you enjoy and are familiar with), and B) own your own domain name.
In this first section, I will walk you through how to setup a profitable blog. Then, once you’re blog is setup correctly, in the next section I will take you through the steps you need to take in order to start making a monthly income from your blog.
II. Content Creation & Content Promotion
Now that your blog is setup correctly, the real work begins. In order to make money with your blog, you need to have excellent content.
However, the concept that “Content is King” is somewhat flawed in that it convinces some that all you need to do is produce great content.
That, of course, isn’t true. Along with great content, you need to be able to promote it well.
The better you promote your content the more people you will get and the more earning potential your blog will have.
In this section I’ll walk you through how to come up with a content strategy, how to create a social media strategy, how to produce high quality content, and how to promote your content well.
