STEP 1 – CHOOSE A BLOG TOPIC
Find a topic you are passionate about or something you want to learn more about. Your blog can be a way to either share your expertise or grow your expertise. Blogging can be a way to share your knowledge or share your journey! Here’s help to choose what to blog about and how to decide on a blog name! Blogging is not hard, it just takes time and effort – kind of like a new exercise routine. But if you stay consistent, you’ll see results and your life will change!
STEP 2 – BE UNIQUE AND BE YOURSELF
Decide what will make you unique. Many moms never start a blog because they fear there are already too many blogs. If you allow your unique personality to shine through you will grow a following. Just like people have multiple friends, they also follow multiple blogs.
STEP 3 – START YOUR BLOG
Here you can learn how to start a mom blog and make money by using the super popular and powerful WordPress platform to build your website. Or you can follow the step by step videos in the Blog by Number course, taken by over 5,000 moms to start their blogs and make money from home.
STEP 4 – BUILD YOUR PROFESSIONAL BLOG
It’s important to build a professional blog from the beginning. Because there are so many blogs out there, you do need to create a professional looking blog and set yourself apart. With today’s technology this is super easy. And my step by step blogging course for moms walks you through it. You do not need to pay hundreds of dollars for a professional blog, I will teach you how to do it yourself!
STEP 5 – BUILD A FOLLOWING AND GET TRAFFIC
Decide one 2 or 3 social media platforms maximum to grow your blog’s following. Do not overexert yourself trying to be on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, SEO, Twitter etc. Take one platform at a time and grow your following there.
STEP 6 – BUILD YOUR EMAIL LIST
Build your email list from day one. Decide on an amazing freebie that is completely focused on your reader. A checklist, a how to guide, or a printable are all great ideas! If you help your reader solve a problem, they will gladly join your email list. Your subscribers will become your future customers, treat them with lots of love! My email list has grown from 0 to over 14,000 in my first year of blogging, you can do this too! I’ll show you how in this free post on how to build your email list for beginners!
STEP 7 – NETWORK WITH OTHER BLOGGERS
Blogging is a great way to network and connect with other amazing mom bloggers on the internet. Share ideas, build friendships and help each other grow your blog. I recently did a collaboration with a fellow mom blogger and together we published this amazing ebook on how to make money with affiliate marketing!
STEP 8 – MAKE MONEY
There are five main ways to make money with a mom blog. You can sell products, services, do sponsored posts, have ads on your blog, or use affiliate marketing. Use multiple methods to make money with your blog and do not rely on just one money making method. I’ve personally had amazing success with my products and affiliate marketing. In less than a year I grew my blog to over $6,000 a month! It’s amazing to even be able to type those words. Our lives have completely changed, we are no longer in debt, and we can provide a better future for our kids. I want you to experience this too!
STEP 9 – WRITE CONSISTENTLY
You don’t have to publish a blog post every single day. That is putting too much pressure on yourself and it’s unreasonable as a new blogger. Start with once every two weeks, then once a week, and slowly get into a consistent rhythm. And if you miss a week you can always post a quick video, image or Facebook post letting your readers know you’re uber busy. Allowing yourself to be real on your blog will attract more loyal followers.
STEP 10 – FOCUS ON THE 20%
When you are first learning how to start a mom blog you can become overwhelmed very quickly. That is why I highly recommend going through a step by step course to save you hours of anxiety and overwhelm. You can also use my super easy trick of prioritizing your life so you can focus on the right things! Focus on the 20% of actions that bring in 80% of your desired results.
