Blogging can be really difficult, especially if you are trying to make money from your blog.
Many bloggers and online influencers skip over affiliate marketing. They either think it’s too hard, that it’s a waste of time, that they will turn followers away, or that their followers just won’t be interested.
However, if you’re not earning money through affiliate marketing, then you are leaving money on the table.
If you are a technophobe and dread the thought of having to learn yet another tech-based app or programme then fear not! This list of 12 great tools are specifically chosen because they are easy to use, and in most cases, they are free too.

The “Quick Start” Programme is a training programme that I developed for my business customers a couple of years ago to help them promote their new businesses successfully online.
Or, to put it another way, to help them to build an automated, systemised business that attracts customers directly to them every day and on auto-pilot.
But not in a sleazy or slimey salesy way. I hate that and I don’t teach those tactics.
I want you to have the blogging business you want and the lifestyle you hanker after, (being able to work from anywhere, no more boss, no more 9 – 5, and customers that actually want to buy from you). In other words, I want you to have a hugely successful blogging business that you can be proud of.
Here’s a quick overview of the programme. Think of it as your complete roadmap to success.
Welcome: We kick things off with a warm welcome and a short message from me. I then let you know what you need to do first, and set you off on the right path whether it’s getting your blog started, or getting to the next level.
Chapter 1: Branding that connects.
Your marketing strategy all depends on your visibility online. In this module I will teach you how to create your branding if you don’t already have any, how to create social media headers that act as lead magnets and it also includes a workbook to make sure you stay on track.
Chapter 2: Creating your hook.
Having a way to attract customers to your business is crucial if you are going to grow. This chapter is going to teach you how to create a hook that will attract leads and customers to your business on autopilot. It comes with a workbook to show you exactly what steps to take and how to implement it on your website or blog. Your marketing system sorted.
Chapter 3: Creating your Lead Magnet.
Once you have got the attention of prospective customers with your hook, you are going to need a way of enticing them to try one of your offers. The lead magnet will collect their email address and automatically send them whatever your offer is on autopilot. They will receive everything within minutes of signing up. Your onboarding and education systems sorted.
Chapter 4: Creating your Sales Funnel.
Now that you have a way of attracting leads, following up with them, educating them and nurturing them, you are going to need some things to sell to them. This is where you sales funnel starts working for you. I will teach you how to create a sales funnel that converts your leads into paying customers and encourages further sales from those existing customers. Your conversion and sales systems sorted.
Bonuses: I’m also throwing in over £2,000 worth of bonuses, yes I really am.

Time waits for no man (or woman). Never a truer word spoken. How are you using the time you have left to you?
Do you spend it wishing that you had more money?
Do you spend it moaning about your job or boss?
Can you see these are “desperate” behaviours?
Are you ready to start attracting customers?
I hope you said yes because in this post I am going to be talking about the different ways of learning the business side of blogging. It is this knowledge and the skills that you develop as a result that will help you to build a really successful blog and start making a living as a blogger.
But, before we start talking about business matters and how to attract customers to your blog, I want to talk to you about something that involves you personally that might affect your chances of becoming the successful blogger that you want to be and have the business that you love.

This is a bit of a lengthy post so you might want to go and grab yourself a cuppa. It’s worth it though, so make sure you come back…
Okay, so you thought you’d become a blogger. You’ve done loads of research, read lots of different blogs from lots of different bloggers and learnt one lesson from all of them – you can turn your blog into a business and make money from it.
You’d be mad not to then right?
Please don’t listen to your friends for blogging advice and here’s why. Have you ever had your friends telling you that you should maybe give up, or that you probably won’t make it as a blogger because it’s really hard to make money online, or any other advice that is downright negative?
Welcome to the club. It’s difficult isn’t it to know what to do. You don’t want to offend your friends by asking them to shut up, but you don’t want to listen to them either because they haven’t a clue what they’re talking about when it comes to what you do.
I was in exactly that situation. My family and friends didn’t really have the first idea what a blog was or what you could potentially achieve with one. And yet they felt they were adequately qualified to give me advice on mine.
The sad part is though that I had started to listen to them and started to think that they might be right. But in my heart I knew that they were wrong.
It was because of this that I looked around for someone who actually knew what they were talking about to help me. Relying on my friends and family for advice had been the wrong thing to do. After all, what did they know? (with the greatest of respect).
Have you ever wondered why most new bloggers fail?
What I’m going to talk about in this post will probably make you feel a little uncomfortable, and maybe a little annoyed, as it will definitely make creating a successful blog a longer process for you. But I guarantee that if you take the advice within it, you will have a successful blog that is both attracting new viewers AND making money for you much faster!
Okay, let’s explore some of the reasons why most brilliant new bloggers fail.
Can you relate to any of this?…
