What Is A Million Dollar Blog Business?
First let’s set a few ground rules here.
Next, I need to tell you that this is the 30,000-foot view of how it’s done.
If this were packed with every single one of the details, then this blog post would be over 200 pages long.
I have courses that teach you all the secret details you need to know. Just get on my list and you’ll see everything you need. You can join my list here.
3rd, this is not a post about how to build a blog, how to launch a blog or how to set up wordpress.
I’m going to presume you know those things, or if you don’t just search YouTube for videos on how to do them, you’ll find tons.
The Big Picture: How To Turn Your Blog Into A Million Dollar Business
I’m going to keep this as simple and straight forward as possible, keeping it on track with the big picture of how it all works.
With that, let’s get right into what it takes to accomplish this.
Do What You Love And What Makes Money
If you do already have a niche or maybe even a blog started, you still have to subject it to the same criteria as someone exploring a new niche to go into.
A). Do you love this niche? I mean do you REALLY love this niche?
You had better be passionate about your niche because you’re going to be working in it every day for years to come.
There is absolutely NO sense in being in a niche that you don’t like when there are tons of fantastic niches out there that you could really enjoy.
B). You need to pick a niche that can make you a lot of money.
This may seem like a no brainer, but, as you follow along with the rest of what I have to say in this post, you may have your mind changed about what that means.
In the writings below, you’ll come to a much better understanding of what a real money making niche is.
People ask all the time: How do I make money blogging?
Well, you can make pocket change with nearly any blog. But, to make a lot of money you need a very specific plan.
So, to answer the first question…
What Is A Million Dollar Blog?
You can define it two ways.
If yes, then that would satisfy most peoples criteria for what a million dollar blog is.
Flippa is a site where you can sell your website to the highest bidder.
B). Does your blog make you a million dollars per annum?
If your blog has a million dollars per year in total revenue (sales and earnings), then that would satisfy ANYONE’S criteria for saying you have a million dollar blog.
What I’ll show you below is how to satisfy both criteria if you’d like too.
I say, if you’d like too because, many people are afraid of building a large business, or don’t believe they can.
Well, there’s no reason you can’t, that’s for sure.
The Mechanics Of Building A Million Dollar Blog Business
Now we will start to get into the mechanics of how to turn your blog into a million dollar business.
Choose A Niche Where You Can Develop Products
The best niches are those where you can be both an affiliate and a product creator.
The reason is simple.
The latter of course.
Plus, when you own the products all your affiliates are sending you buyers for you to build your list from.
Think about it.
If you’re an affiliate, you’re sending the product owner all your best buyers. They can sit back and let an army of affiliates send them nothing but buyers and build their list with them as well.
When you become the product creator, you are the one getting sent all the buyers to sell to and build your email list from.
Which Products Work Best?
Digital products tend to work really well, however, you can just as easily use physical products.
You’ll generally need more investment capital for physical products and you’ll need to handle logistics like shipping as well.
The method is simple really.
You find great products in your niche and become an affiliate for them.
Once they are selling well, then you simply buy the top 3 to 5 products in the niche to study them.
Let’s say that it’s an eBook on puppy training as an example.
You’ve been selling it very successfully for 3 months or more.
So, you go buy a copy of the top 5 selling puppy training books for sale anywhere in your country.
You read all of them.
Then, without copying or plagiarism of ANY KIND! You recreate all of their best parts and leave all of their worst parts behind.
Be sure that you’re using them for inspiration only and that all of your work is 100% original.
You also take all of your knowledge on the subject and mix it with the best from those top product rewrites and create the puppy training super manual!
Now, there are a LOT more parts and pieces to doing this than what I’ve just discussed with you here.
This is just a general overview.
Then, there are whole sets of criteria you must know while affiliating the product in the first place so that you chose the right product to begin with.
Plus, there are different rules for different types of digital products in different niches and a whole other set of rules for physical products.
There are complete sets of criteria that I’ve developed to ensure you pick a winner and don’t just waste all your money and time backing a looser. That can be both costly and embarrassing.
So, as I said before, get on my list and you’ll be introduced to my courses that go over everything you need to know. Plus, you get a great free eBook for signing up: Click here to get on my list and get your free eBook, you’ll love it!
Then You Start Building Your Magic Blog Funnel
This is where it gets really interesting!!!
Here is your blog funnel overview
The best way to show you what you’ll really be doing is to just put it into a list format.
This way you can see it all laid out step by step.
Always remember, for each step, there are many moving pieces.
I’m not going to get into them at this time, because as I said this would be a 200 page blog post.
But, you can rest easy, it’s all in the courses.
Here is the list of how it all goes together.
- Your opt in – this is your lead page where you give away a free eBook, video, app or 30 day free trial etc.
- They join your list – now you send them great free content that is insanely valuable where they can learn a ton for free. This content will be on your blog.
- You offer them an inexpensive product – this is something that they all need to solve, one of their biggest problems.
This builds trust with them as they see that you completely over deliver. You give them many times their money’s worth. Really provide value. You want them to get so much for such a fair price they think you’re nuts.
- They stay on your list – you keep sending them fantastic free information that is insanely valuable to them, that really helps them move closer to their goals.
- Your main product – now you let them acquire your main product that solves their biggest problem or allows them to discover how to build their own million dollar blog business as an example.
You ensure that they get so much value that they can’t believe their eyes. When you deliver it, it’s so good that their eyes nearly pop out of their heads.
This will be easy to do once you discover the secrets to doing it in my main course.
With what I’ll show you, product creation will become one of your favorite tasks.
- They remain on your list. By this time only a fool would get off your list. They have received so much value whether they’ve bought your products or not that they can’t believe it. So, why would they ever leave?
The answer is, they won’t.
They see that you’re constantly over delivering on value for free.
- You allow them to join your monthly membership. Here you have your academy where you continue all the great information that you had in your courses by taking over where they left off.
A daily tip in their email, super in-depth content, industry specific news that they can’t get anywhere else and more.
- You continue with your list – providing them with amazing free content that they would be happy to pay for.
- You can add additional products as they make sense.
There you have it.
The devil is in the details of course. Without them you’ll have a heck of a time and most likely run into some serious challenges.
Just get on my list and you’ll go through the exact steps I’ve listed above, and you’ll be able to build your million dollar blog business in no time flat.
With your main benefit being that you’ll not only know what your doing, but why you’re doing it.
