To get you motivated and excited, let me give you some screenshots and daily income reports of very successful blogs.
Just take a LOOK below, and use it as your ‘super juice” to get you going on creating your blog and building your list.

Notice the Daily Income, not monthly incomes of these blogs.
As you study this list, you will notice that advertising banners make up the main income from some of these top performing blogs which means that the more visitors you have to your site with good content, it is possible to make a full-time living online just from putting simple ads on your site! Now, I call that a win-win.
Others, make their daily/monthly income from affiliate links, which is the model I follow, although I do use Google Adsense as well and have already made a small amount of money the first week on the 1 Google ad at the bottom of this blog, starting out. As time goes on, that income will grow naturally.
My full-time income comes from mailing affiliate offers to my subscriber list, product offers that I create and this membership blog.
You can model after me and create the same thing =).
Where do you begin? Let’s start by building your list and then in the next lesson, I’ll show you how to begin right away to write a blog post and include an affiliate link to share all over the internet.
Why should you build a list again? If every single one of your multiple streams of income all dry up, but you still have your list, you can start over and fill up your Paypal account with one simple email. That’s the wonderful thing about owning your own list.
If you are worried about what to say to your subscribers, we will cover that in later lessons. For now, you need to build that list.
Don’t you agree that can be life-changing? I agree. It’s what I do and it is what I want you do and I want you to stick to it every day because this is can change your life, if you do it consistently.
Now, let’s build your blog around your most important asset…your subscriber list.
To begin, you need 2 Things:
- An autoresponder
- A lead capture box to collect names and emails
First, sign up at Aweber with a trial account.
I’m going to show you two ways TO DO THIS:
Option #1 There is a FREE way which you
can put on your blog or in your Youtube Description underneath your
video using the Capture Form from Aweber.
(You can read how to do this with screenshots step-by-step in this
Pages 1 – 20 in the WSO I wrote here):
Option #2 This is what I use now that is more effective. If you can afford it this service, it is well-worth it.
Here is a screenshot of how many people are opting in to my lists (that means giving you their name and email into the form you provide) using this service called LeadPages:
It’s really exciting when you see your first subscriber come into your email box. Just put in your email inside your first campaign, and you will receive notification when your first subscriber signs up =).
Here’s how you start:
First, Go to this link and order their basic package or the more advanced level. The more advanced package will let you promote Leadpages as an affiliate link, which you can do later, if you are short on cash.
Second, Choose from the drop-down box called LeadBoxes that looks like this:
CUSTOMIZE THIS FORM:
Next, choose Aweber, and Using: Name of your list in Aweber, hit OKAY, SAVE, & PUBLISH
Now, you can have an image made at Fiverr.com, upload a Master Reseller Product that you can offer as your Freebie offer, or use a free image from Pixabay.com. It’s that simple!
Now, off to your build your first opt-in form, and then we will talk about building your blog and sharing your content. As you can see from the Top Blogs above, this is a very lucrative business. Why isn’t everyone doing it? They don’t know what you KNOW.
- Sign up at Aweber
- Sign up at LeadPages
It’s time to build your list!
