I've been blogging since 2004, with modest success. While I knew quite a bit about blogging and WordPress, I managed to pick up some tips and tricks in the first six chapters. Chapter 7 covered what I felt that I needed help the most - how to write online content that attracts and keeps readers. I also learned a lot from Chapters 8 through 13 and will refer to them once I nail down the principles in the seventh chapter.
This book is such an easy read that I plowed through it this morning, highlighting almost every page. If you have just launched blog (or are planning to) and want a solid blueprint on how to make it successful, Make Money Online is a must-read. If you've been blogging for 6+ months and find yourself struggling to build your readership and/or earn a full-time living, Make Money Online is a must-read.
I didn't expect anyone to read my 'blog' but my husband and daughter...but on about day 2 of blogging...I noticed that a friend had clicked 'like' after I posted my blog. I was so excited I called Kim at work...and since I never bothered her at work...SHE thought there was a family emergency...She answered in a panic...and I yelled..."RACHEL JUST READ MY BLOG AND CLICKED LIKE!!!" She laughed for 3 minutes......
After that day...my readers quickly grew and grew....and now my blog is read all over the world. I'd never given any thought to making money blogging...until one day...I ran across something online that just said, "Make Money With Your Blog" :-) So I thought...well for goodness sakes....I DO this every morning ANYWAY...why not make some money...?
So I began researching....making money with a personal blog. I didn't really find anything that sounded 'real' to me...and we're retired and I didn't especially need any extra money....Everything "I" found...was just written by people SELLING THEIR IDEA of making money with a blog......But one day last week...I feel the Lord just led me....to this book...I can't even remember how it happened...But I do a lot of giving and helping of homeless and very destitute families...and I felt the LORD KNEW that if I made some good money blogging....that money would be put to good use to help families in dire need.....
We were going away for the weekend this past weekend...so I ordered Johns book and had it overnighted...in fact...I ordered 2 of this same book..because our daughter is still my computer tech and when I need help with my blog she's there........I read it over the weekend with a pen and highlighter in hand....The pen...to write my own thoughts in margins...and the highlighter to highlight anything I thought was crucial in the book....I always do this when reading anyway......But when I finished Johns book....I showed it to my husband and we laughed and laughed....because I had almost the whole book....highlighted.....Kind of defeated my own purpose....
But this is WITHOUT A DOUBT...the best book out there on making money with a blog...personal blog or otherwise....He tells you exactly how he got his start....what websites helped him....other blogs to check out to let us physically SEE... what he is trying to tell us....EVERYTHING we would need to know...is in this book...with very detailed explanations...I really think this book is going to make my blog one of the big money making blogs...and do so...fairly quickly beCAUSE it's already a well read blog with good solid content.
Now just reading Johns book....is NOT going to help you...You will have to read and study and highlight the book to refer back to as you work your blog...
My blog is a simple personal blog on living life to the fullest...savoring moments...improving relationships...spreading peace and love...and it's inspirational, motivational, humorous, uplifting and thought provoking...I share some of my favorite recipes as an old fashioned cook and we do projects together...the readers and I...like the "29 Days Of Giving" project...I have so many readers tell me they can't start their day until they've read my blog.
I hope this review inspires you to order this book....It's worth every single penny and more.....
There's everything you need to begin explained in each chapter of this book and I recommend it for beginners in blogging and thos who would want to monetize their blogs as viable business assets. Find out who John Chow is and become inspired by his opening story at the beginning of the book.
There are subtle differences though.
- it's more professional in tone, so you won't hear John the internet marketer but the educator
- it's autobiographical whereas the ebook consisted more of lists
- there are updated strategies
- there aren't any illustrations
- goes into details about off-line strategies for promoting your online efforts
- goes more into branding which the ebook didn't cover
- no mention of affiliate marketing
- talks about setting up private ad sales in depth
The sections above alone makes the book worth the purchase. It's John's system from one viewpoint. While I found the branding chapter valuable alone, the way Michael has put together this version together takes you from 0 to know. You're led step-by-step through the ropes of online blogging for profit. The rest will need your actionable sweat.
