How to Monetize Your Blog (In 3 Easy Steps!)

  1. Do really awesome stuff.
  2. Show people what you’ve done, and teach them how to do it, too.
  3. Repeat.

That’s right. No Google ads or paid ebooks or lucrative speaking engagements. Just real, hard work.

If you follow those three steps, you’ll connect with people you otherwise never would have. You’ll also learn about amazing opportunities you otherwise never would have heard about. Opportunities to actually do things that people pay you for. Maybe that will mean a lucrative speaking engagement. Probably not, though.

Go make things. Then tell people about it.
