Almost a year ago, I posted about experiencing information overload while trying to figure out this Internet marketing thing. Well the other day, it dawned on me that I no longer felt information overload. I no longer felt like a newbie. I can actually understand all the Internet marketing jargon. And whenever I receive an E-mail trying to sell me yet another Internet marketing product, I could easily tell if it was something worth my time, effort and money. I am now confidently deleting those E-mails rather than getting seduced by the gurus’ slick copywriting and bonuses.
I can credit my newfound confidence and focus to finding the right teachers. One of them is Amy Bass, a homeschooling Mom of 4 who recently launched a membership site to teach others how to make money from blogs. Amy blogged herself out of a $72,000 debt and is now earning $5,000 a month.
I signed up for the Niche Blogger because Amy promised to teach her system step by step through daily lessons, which you can do at your own pace. She also answers your questions via a blog — that’s something you will almost never get from any other Internet marketing expert.
Of course, the fact that Amy is a stay at home Mom like me was a big plus. It meant that she knew my constraints and challenges, that she faced them herself and could understand my limitations.
I found the case to be the same for me as well. The first lessons – involving signing up for hosting and registering a domain name – were too basic for me. But after that, everything was pretty much new. I like Amy’s system for promoting a blog so that it gets indexed (and ranking) by Google fast. In fact, I used this same system for a non-profit blog that I put up. The site was indexed by Google overnight and it is now number 1 for its target keywords.
Following the Niche Blogger‘s formula for marketing a blog, I have managed to slowly increase traffic to an old blog and the new one, which I developed from the beginning using Niche Blogger’s blueprint, is beginning to pick up traffic as well.
Amy is the first to say that her system takes time. It is not a get-rich-quick scheme. You will have to do a lot of work before you can earn a full-time income with this system. It involves a lot of market research and writing – so much in fact that I almost got sick of writing myself.
If you hate writing, the members share their own discoveries through the Niche Blogger forum. You will find out where to get good-enough articles written at $1.50 each. Even though I write for a living, I just might use that route for my next niche blog.
Although the lessons are written daily, you can go at your own pace. I found myself logging into the membership site whenever I had some free time, eager to see what the day’s lesson was. Sometimes, it would take me a few minutes to implement the lesson; sometimes it took days. Sometimes, the rest of my life took over and I wouldn’t be able to log in for days on end. I never felt like I was being left behind or anything. And I always looked forward to what new skill or strategy was in store for me. Amy made learning Internet marketing fun
There’s a lot of good content to learn in Niche Blogger. As a regular member, you get access month to month. When you sign up for lifetime membership (I did; it was the most cost-effective option), you get access to all the content at once. And Amy continues to add content indefinitely. Right now, there are 5 months of content and I am in month 4.
Is the Niche Blogger for you? If you want to make money by running a number of websites and your Internet marketing skills are from complete beginner up to intermediate, then this is for you. Again, this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. If you’re willing to put in the time and effort, then this will work.Home business ideas, Recommended, Resources | Tags: niche blogger, niche blogger review | Comment (1)
