Who This Book Is For?
I have been blogging actively since around 2006. Whilst I’m known for building and selling successful blogs, I have also found a lot of success through blogging for others.
Most people are unaware of the money that can be made through freelance blogging. I need to be honest – I didn’t know either. I had been making money through the internet for around 10 years before I started actively writing for other blogs. The penny dropped when I started making more money blogging for other blogs than I was making through my existing blogs.
There are a lot of self-professed “Gurus” online who profess to be making a killing through affiliate marketing. What may surprise you is that there are many low-key bloggers making much more money than them, simply by writing every day for commercial blogs.
The Art of Freelance Blogging was written for people who:
- Are looking to make a living online.
- Want the flexibility that an online career provides so that they can work their own hours, travel and spend more time with familar and friends.
- Are williing to work hard to become successful.
I’m not going to lie to you and tell you that everyone who buys this book will make money. They won’t. In fact, from my experience, a large percentage of people who buy books don’t even finish them. This book details exactly what you need to do make thousands of dollars every month blogging for others, however it is up to you to implement the steps detailed in this book. No one else can do that for you. If you want to enjoy the same success that I have had through blogging, you’re going to have to work for it.
If you want to learn new skills and are motivated to work hard every day, I guarantee that you will become a successful freelance blogger.
