Why EVERY Aspiring Writer Should Write a Blog

(Yes, That Includes You!)

Do it right and you’ll not only become a better writer faster…

You’ll be tapping into the SINGLE BIGGEST MARKETING TREND of our lifetime… setting yourself up for a five- or six-figure income… writing 3.5 hours a day on average…

Here’s How to Start Yours Today!

Dear Fellow Writer,

If you haven’t yet considered writing a blog…

You’re missing out on one of the most powerful skill-building exercises any writer can undertake.

Writing a blog is like a “daily stretch” for your brain and your writing muscles.

Even 15 to 20 minutes of writing each day helps you sharpen your writing skills… focus your thinking… develop your own unique writing style…

All, while building up a body of work you can be proud of and use to advance your writing career.

And most importantly — it gets you in the very positive habit of writing every day.

But that’s just half of it.

Businesses NEED You…

By learning the very simple secrets to writing your own blog… you’ll be developing one of the most in-demand skills in the copywriting world today…

A writing skill that could put you on the receiving end of a veritable “river of money.”

You see, a very recent study by ResearchNow showed that 84% of Internet users make buying decisions based on information they get from blogs …

Over 1.7 billion people!

They’re more influential than opinions found on Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, in forums or in online magazines.

Naturally, businesses have taken notice.

Which is why they’re willing to pay writers thousands of dollars in the form of retainers and writing fees every month to write them …

And that’s in addition to the thousands of dollars more you could be generating in the form of passive income — just from your own writing!

Hi…

My name is Rebecca Matter.

Rebecca Matter President, AWAI

As President of AWAI, it’s my goal to help aspiring writers like you find the best path to becoming a well-paid writer FAST.

And for those people who love to write but aren’t quite sure what they want to write about yet…

Writing a blog is the very best thing you can do for your writing career…

Both in terms of your professional development… AND learning a highly marketable and very-much-in-demand writing skill.

Best of all…

You’re likely already very familiar with this style of writing.

That’s because, if you’re like most people, you not only read blogs at least once a week, but you’ve taken some kind of action based on what you read!

And because this type of writing is typically short and very direct — it’s one of the easiest forms of well-paid writing to learn

Which means, once you know the very simple structure to writing them, you can be up and running as a professional writer in a matter of days, not months.

Either writing a blog of your own…

Or as a “hired gun” to write blogs for the tens, even hundreds of thousands of businesses who desperately need help keeping their blogs fresh, up-to-date and relevant.

Now, there are some people out there who think blogging is “old news.”

I’m here to tell you — that’s absolutely false.

In fact, the polar opposite is true:

Blogging is the “now” and the future!

Especially for businesses.

That’s because more sales, and more brand and loyalty-building is done through GREAT CONTENT today than ever before…

And “great content” is what blogging is all about.

That’s terrific news for anyone who wants to make excellent money as a writer… but isn’t ready to tackle the “hard selling” that sales letters and other online marketing requires.

Blog writing boils down to two very simple things:

  1. A desire to write…
  2. A desire to HELP people, by delivering to them the knowledge and information they need to solve a problem or improve their lives.

Now, the very fact you’re with AWAI and here to learn about blog writing with me today suggests you’ve got #1 covered.

With regard to point #2 — how cool is that?!

To be able to make a great living writing to people who WANT to hear what you have to say… who respect your insights, opinions, and suggestions… and who will use the information YOU give them to make their lives better in some way…

As far a “job satisfaction” goes — it doesn’t get much better!

Your blog is your gift to the world.

It’s like a “work of art” that is ongoing. Everyday you’re thinking about it, tending to it, building it up.

And watching it grow day-by-day is incredibly rewarding…

Which is why the most successful blog writers I know are so passionate about what they’re writing about that they can’t wait to jump out of bed each morning and tend to it!

Bloggers, like all writers, are naturally curious as well.

We’re excited to learn new things, explore new ideas.

Whether writing our own blog or writing blogs for clients — top blog writers are forever understanding what their readers want to know…

And then “digging in” to find the answer.

That’s what being a blog writer is all about.

It’s why starting a blog today is the VERY BEST thing you can do to jump-start your writing career.

It’s also the best and fastest way to build up the writing skills you need… and quickly create an impressive body of work you can use to wow any potential client.

In this special report, I’ll show you how to set up and start your very own blog TODAY.

And then I’m going to do something that can change your life…

I’m going to show you all the ways you can turn your newfound blog-writing skills into a fun, high-paying writer’s income and lifestyle

Writing a few hours each week…

About the things you LOVE to write about.

Sounds great, right?

And if, at the end of it all, you think you’ll need more guided help — I’m excited to announce a brand-new program we’ve just put together…

Our first-ever program on becoming a highly skilled blog writer.

And we’ll be offering it at a price anyone can afford…

And it’s all because we want to get you writing — TODAY.

More on that later. But first…

Just What Is a “Blog” Anyway?

You hear about “blogs” all the time.

And a lot of people think they’re like a “journal” you write every day, with random thoughts about whatever happens to be on your mind that day.

When you hear about the more 600 million blogs populating the internet today — many of them are just that:

Random posts and rambling thoughts that are of zero interest to most readers.

To be clear — that’s NOT what we’re talking about here.

The blogs we’ll teach you how to write deliver information people can use

Information that helps them understand things better… accomplish their goals… make their lives better.

Simply put, a blog is all about useful content on a very specific topic.

By “useful” I mean:

Anything that answers a reader’s questions…

Anything that helps to solve a problem…

Anything that supports a shared viewpoint…

Anything that helps someone make a more informed buying decision…

Anything that educates, informs, enlightens…

And by “specific,” I’m talking about a very particular and defined subject matter.

For instance — instead of having a blog about a very broad subject like “cars” — you’re far better off writing about a particular model of car… or antique cars… or “muscle” cars… or auto restoration.

That way, you’re more likely to attract targeted readers who are more likely to follow you and buy the products and services you might recommend.

Which brings is to the next question:

Who Reads a Blog?

In short… pretty much everyone!

YOU read blogs.

More importantly, you trust blogs.

According to WordPress, roughly 409 million people view more than 20 million pages of blog content each and every month!

Why?

Because studies show that 70% of people would rather learn about new ideas or products through articles than traditional “paid” advertisements.

Online research firm ResearchNow reports that 84% of online buyers have bought products based on information and descriptions they read in blogs.

Which means when it comes to making more informed decisions — whether it’s the quickest way to safely lose 20 pounds… how to fix squeaky brakes on a BMW M5… or what technology the next television they buy should have…

Consumers turn to blog posts containing useful content companies are more than happy to pay expert blog writers — like you — to write! 

And considering 2.14 billion people buy online — the number of people who find blogs while searching online is MASSIVE! 

Which brings us to the other crucial reader of blogs besides you…

Google Reads Blogs!

You see, Google’s all about giving its customers what they want.

In fact, according AWAI Advisory Board Member and Google expert Russ Henneberry, Google’s algorithms have gotten so smart that even Google doesn’t know how Google works anymore.

It’s impossible to “trick” Google with anything but great content.

So, let’s say you have pets, like my family does. And you’re tired of paying over a thousand dollars a year to have them groomed. But you’re not sure the best way to bathe and groom them at home.

If we search, say “What’s the proper way to bathe our dogs”…

Pet Bathing Google Search Screenshot

Google’s algorithms will “read” through the tens of millions of web pages in about a half second to identify articles that best answer that question.

And the first article to appear?

This incredibly thorough “how-to” blog post on “Tips for Grooming a Dog at Home” housed on the website of a pet company called Preventive Vet:

Pet Bathing Blog Screenshot 1 Pet Bathing Blog Screenshot 2 Pet Bathing Blog Screenshot 3 Pet Bathing Blog Screenshot 4

It features loads of information on technique, the brushes, clippers, scissors, shears, and other tools you’ll need to do an expert job…

Along with everything else you could ever want and need to know about grooming your pet like an expert.

And because this blog contained so much great information, it landed smack-dab, high up on page one of Google’s search results so I could easily find it.

So, what just happened here?

I got the information I wanted.

And what did Preventative Vet get?

Not only did this article draw me to their website where I might buy some of the items I might need to make grooming our dogs easier…

They gained a level of credibility by positioning themselves as experts in caring for our dogs.

In other words, they gained — in us — a potential customer.

And you can see, throughout this article…

Pet Care Newsletter Signup Screenshot 4

Plenty of opportunities to sign up to get their newsletter with even more tips on how to better care for our pets.

So, it’s very much a win-win…

Which brings us to…

Who Needs a Blog?

This is where it gets very exciting for you:

Virtually any business with a product or service that helps customers and potential customers get what they want or solve a problem will benefit from publishing a regular blog…

Just like Preventative Vet — who landed a new potential customer when I found its blog.

We’re talking literally hundreds of thousands of entities…

From the biggest multinational corporations… to online retailers and service companies… to nonprofits and professional associations… to smaller companies in your hometown!

They ALL benefit from having blogs with content their customers or followers need.

Millions of Businesses NEED You!

But…

These folks are busy running their businesses.

They don’t always have the time, know-how, or resources to write blog content themselves…

So, what do savvy business owners do?

They find writers — like you — to write blog content for them.

So, once you establish yourself as a “blog expert”…

That’s a virtually never-ending stream of paying clients who need you.

Think about the small businesses in your hometown — from the local nursery who can set themselves apart from the competition by offering timely planting tips…

To the specialty wine and cheese shop writing about new vintages and perfect food and drink pairings…

Or the kitchen store offering cooking and other household tips.

Once you know the secrets to writing a successful blog, you’ll be an invaluable resource for them!

But the opportunity extends far beyond businesses in your hometown.

Hundreds of thousands of B2B companies need blogs — content that helps other companies be more efficient, save money, grow their sales.

The biggest corporations need blogs. Walmart, Coca Cola, Allstate Insurance, Whole Foods, Best Buy, Home Depot, and Disney have some of the best-read blog content on the internet!

Hundreds of thousands of online service companies whose businesses depend on great content to such an extent that they literally have entire teams of bloggers churning out articles.

Virtually any and every business with a story to tell can benefit from a blog!

And with the average blog article paying anywhere from $250 to $1,000 for a few hours to a day of writing, depending on the length and research involved…

This is not only “fun” writing — it pays incredibly well too.

And remember…

Businesses NEVER need just one blog post.

Most often they’ll post weekly, sometimes two or three times per week… week after week, month after month.

You can see very quickly how as a skilled blog writer you can keep very busy — and be very well-paid — with just a handful of regular writing clients.

And that’s just writing blogs for OTHER people…

Your Own Blog Can Generate Healthy Income as Well!

We haven’t even talked about writing your own blog yet — which you can easily set up to deliver an amazing passive income…

Money that comes to you all hours of the day — even while you sleep!

So, imagine as part of your morning ritual… pouring a cup of coffee… logging on to your payment management software… and seeing hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in NEW money!

Money you earned writing about subjects you’re interested in and passionate about.

Not sure what to write about? It can be ANYTHING you’re excited or curious about.

If you love the outdoors, you can write about backpacking along the world’s greatest hiking trails…

If you’re an avid golfer, you can write about what it’s like to play legendary golf courses, offer tips for getting tee times…

You can focus your blog on specific aspects of gardening (tomatoes)… cars (restoration)… cycling (mountain biking)… pets (poodles)… finance (working women)… cooking (Northern Italian)… wine (collecting)… and so on.

Even if you don’t have a particular “passion,” you can still write a successful blog.

Some of the most successful bloggers are people who knew nothing about a topic… but wanted to learn. So, they started a blog that chronicled their learning experience so others could learn alongside them. 

One example you might know is a woman by the name of Julie Powell who blogged about cooking all 524 recipes from Julia Child’s famous Mastering the Art of French Cooking in 365 days.

After gaining a huge following, she went on to write a book that was later made into the movie Julie & Julia starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams.

As college students, Declan Wilson and his girlfriend were tired of living on cafeteria food and wanted to learn how to cook nutritious meals at a decent price.

So they started a blog that chronicled the two of them learning to cook so other college kids who wanted to learn how to cook could follow them…

Declan calls this approach “learning out loud.”

I’ve seen people write blogs about their experiences in downsizing and preparing for retirement… losing weight and getting into shape… becoming a first-time parent… training for a marathon… restoring an old house — all told “as it’s happening.”

And that’s the beautiful thing about writing blogs…

You can write about virtually anything — so long as you deliver valuable and useful information to your reader.

People blog about books, TV shows, movies, their favorite sports teams…

AWAI Advisory Board Member and one of the experts we interviewed for our brand-new program, Nick Usborne blogs about one of his passions, coffee.

He pockets as much as $4,000 a month from his coffee blog by recommending coffee-related products — money that comes on top of what he makes as a copywriter and consultant.

Neil Patel, who shows internet businesses and entrepreneurs how to drive more traffic to their websites, is a great example of what can happen when you take a blog to the next level.

He’s gained such a huge following with the great content he delivers that he generates as much as $380,000 in a single month from his blog. 

And if you really want to dream big…

Blogs that began as one-person “kitchen table” operations like Engadget and Mashable have gone on to generate several million dollars per month and be acquired by the likes of AOL for tens, sometimes hundreds of millions of dollars. 

But here’s the thing…

No one blog is like the other.

And there’s no “formula” that’s better than the next.

There are MANY approaches to blogging that can be successful.

That’s why we didn’t limit our new blog promo to just one expert…

Instead, we reached out to 10 of the best, most successful bloggers working today and spent hours interviewing them…

With the sole purpose of distilling the knowledge they shared about writing and the “money-making” side of blogging into a clear, easy-to-follow program that any writer can use to build their own successful blog.

We’re talking world-class bloggers like…

Emma Johnson Author and blogger who makes a great living from her blog aimed at helping the hundreds of thousands of professional single mothers live fuller and richer lives…

These experts have transformed their blog writing skills into six and seven-figure careers… simply by giving their readers the information they’re looking for.

And you’ll get the benefit of all their experience — including how they monetize their writing, sometimes to the tune of millions — in our first-ever “soup-to-nuts” program for new bloggers — How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients: A Step-by-Step Guide to Blogging Success.

You’ll Never Know Where Your Blog Will Take You… Until You Start Writing!

Again, I’ll share all the details on this exciting new program in a moment…

But first…

Now that you see the MASSIVE opportunity for skilled bloggers…

Both in terms of steady flow of income you can make “ghostwriting” blogs for companies…

And the unlimited income potential having your own money-generating blog can lead to…

Not to mention all the high-paying clients you could attract as a topical expert… the potential book deals that can come your way… the multimillion-dollar online business that can spring from your blog…

The question becomes:

How do you get started?

Well, it’s easier than you think:

You simply start writing!

Because remember what I said at the beginning…

The reason you want to start writing a blog first and foremost is to “kick-start” your writing career…

By getting in the habit of writing every day…

Ratcheting up your writing skills…

Building a solid portfolio of writing that you can be proud to show potential clients.

And the very best way to do that is to start a blog for yourself…

Not next week, or even tomorrow.

Right NOW!

Because — once you know how blogs work and how to write one for yourself — writing a blog for others will be like a walk in the park!

So, first things first: You need a subject for your blog — something to write about.

Step 1: Come Up with an Idea for Your Blog

Maybe you already have an idea…

If that’s the case — congratulations! You’re more than halfway to becoming a successful blog writer!

If you’re not sure what to write about — start by thinking about your interests.. or things you’ve always been interested in learning more about.

As top blogger Neil Patel says, your idea does NOT have to be revolutionary. No blog in the world is truly unique. But you are unique. Your voice… your personality — and that’s what will draw people to your writing.

So, here’s a short “litmus test” that will help you decide on a topic to write about.

Simply ask yourself these two questions:

  • Is this a topic I’m excited about and want to learn more about?
  • Are there others interested in the same things?

If you’re not fascinated by what you’re writing about, writing won’t be “fun” for you.

Your writing likely won’t have the energy and passion it needs, and like a lot of people who start blogs, you’ll lose interest and quit.

One writer I know thought about writing a blog for first-time home buyers. I said to him, “I didn’t realize real estate was a passion for you!” His answer was “It’s not — but it’s “hot” right now.”

In another conversation, I discovered he was a HUGE fan of Scotch whisky. He knew everything about blends, malted barelys, the special yeasts, the regions they come from, the different barrels for aging, how they get their distinct flavors.

I told him — “Forget about a blog on houses. Go with your passion, which is obviously Scotch!”

The big lesson here? Don’t write what you think other people are interested in. Write what YOU are interested.

Maybe you fear your passion is too “narrow” to attract readers — that not enough people share your excitement.

Fortunately, finding out is very easy.  Just do a quick Google search!

Here’s one for “scotch whiskey…”

Scotch Whisky Google Search Screenshot

… There you see… over 55 million web pages dedicated to this one topic!

That’s very real data-backed confirmation that you are NOT the only one still interested in scotch whiskey!

You may find your idea is, in fact, too broad — in which case you’ll want to be more specific with your topic…

So maybe instead of “scotch whiskey” — you might want to focus your blog on “single malt scotch whiskey”.

Again — Google the term “single malt scotch whiskey”…

Single Malt Scotch Whisky Google Search Screenshot

And there you see — over 30 million results.

Narrow it down again — “single malt scotch whiskey from Islay,” a famous scotch-producing region off the west coat of Scotland:

Single Malt Islay Scotch Whisky Google Search Screenshot

Now we’re down to 7 million results — still a potentially large audience… but with fewer people writing about it.

Because, remember what we said about narrowing your subject:

It not only focuses your writing and makes you more of an expert, it’s more likely to attract passionate readers who are more likely to be more loyal readers of your blog and better buyers as well.

So, first step — think of a topic and put it to the “Google test.”

And if you can’t think of an idea — not to worry!

Our brand-new program How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients dedicates an entire section on laying the groundwork for your blog, which includes helping you choose the best topics to write about — both in terms of the demand for content, and the ease with which you can monetize your blog.

Plus, we’ve included an amazing “Bonus Report” that not only helps you zero in on the best blog subject for you…

It lists over 340 blog topic ideas you can write about — ideas that millions of people around the world are passionate about and want to hear what YOU have to say about them in your unique voice!

Step 2: Choose a Name for Your Blog…

With a subject in mind, it must be time to write your first blog post, right?

Not quite!

There are few “logistics” you have to cover first, such as:

What’s the name of your blog going to be?

You want to pick a name that’s unique, interesting, but also makes it very clear what your blog is about.

You also want to make sure nobody else is using it — and that the “.com” Domain name is still available, which is a simple as logging on to any domain name registration site like GoDaddy and entering it.

… and a Publishing Platform

Once you have a name for your blog and a domain name you own, you need to choose a blogging platform.

Again, very simple. Most bloggers choose WordPress because it’s easy to use… easy to set up… and best of all — it’s free!

Plus, you can choose from thousands of design themes to give your blog a unique look. And if you don’t like any of WordPress’s free design themes, for a nominal fee you can purchase others from places like StudioPress or Themeforest and they’ll work with WordPress.

Later you can add all kinds of “plugins” as you need them — like forums, a comments section where you can interact with your readers — even a shopping cart should you decide to sell products directly, as opposed to affiliate product links where you get paid when a reader buys a product you recommend.

Again, don’t be intimidated by this part.

Setting up WordPress is very simple — pretty much all “point and click.”

And if you need guidance, the “Getting Ready to Launch” section of How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients will help you make the right decisions and find all the great resources you’ll need to launch and grow your blog.

Plus — we’ve created an entire special report that’s not only dedicated to all the technical aspects of taking your blog “live”…

We even show you how to kick-start the process of letting Google know you’re “open for business” using a very simple but powerful plugin called Yoast SEO.

Step 3: Start “Banking” Ideas to Write About

With a blog topic you’re excited about…

Your blog name chosen and your “.com” name registered…

WordPress all set up and your “blank writing canvas” waiting…

There’s one more bit of planning you’ll want to do before you start writing…

And that’s create an Editorial Calendar that’s jam-packed with ideas to write about!

In How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients, we share with you all the tips, tricks, and techniques top bloggers use to make certain they have months and months of great ideas waiting in the hopper at all times…

Ideas they’re excited to jump out of bed and write about.

Here’s one I love…

Every now and then you’ll hear on the news that today is “National Secretaries Day, or “World Cat Month,” or “National Ice Cream Day.”

Well, it turns out that every day is a National “Something” Day.

In fact, there’s an entire calendar that tracks over 1,500 national days, weeks, and months.

So, let’s say your blog is about chocolate. Well, January 27th is National Chocolate Cake Day, so why not write a blog around that, where you offer tips for baking especially moist chocolate cake and offer a recipe?

Then you learn July 7th is World Chocolate Day — a great day to write about the top 10 chocolate producing countries in the world.

November 4th is National Candy Day and November 5th is National Donut Day — more fodder for your blog.

Even days that aren’t seemingly connected to your blog’s subject matter can lead to great content. For example, November 1st is National “Cook for Your Pet Day” — which is a great time to write about why you should NEVER feed chocolate to your dog.

The “National Day” Calendar is an excellent source for fun, interesting, and unique blogging ideas, which is why every blogger should have a copy and study it…

And it’s just one of many tricks top bloggers use to fill up their Editorial Calendar that we’ll reveal in How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients…

You’ll learn powerful brainstorming techniques… how to drill down and “thin slice” one Big Idea into dozens of articles… ways to use Google to come up with all the articles you’ll ever need… how to get ideas from your readers and fellow bloggers… and much, much more.

You’ll also learn Jon Morrow’s very powerful “Zone of Magic” technique that makes sure your articles are hitting the sweet spot in terms of what your audience wants to hear with every article you write.

So, if you’d love to start a blog but — like most people — you worry you won’t have enough to write about…

The tips and secrets you’ll discover How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients will put that fear to rest for good.

Step 4: Start Writing!

With your blog set up and a calendar brimming with writing ideas…

It’s finally time to write!

And here’s where How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients is worth its weight in gold.

Read any great blog and it looks…

Effortless.

There’s incredible clarity. You instantly know what the article is about.

The promise of what you’re going to get out of the article is very apparent — and it delivers.

The writing flows beautifully, too.

It’s easy to read… with short sentences, simple words, very conversational.

It’s even inviting visually: no “big blocks” of copy… instead it’s got lots of white space on the page and great imagery. Nothing that suggests “heavy reading.”

And the tone?

If you’ve ever had a conversation with someone who has a “natural way” with people — that’s how a great blog reads. Yes, you’re getting great information — but you somehow feel more assured, more confident…

Like someone has lifted a big weight off your shoulder by solving a problem, answering a question you had, or somehow making your life just a little more enjoyable with a great suggestion.

Plus, all great blogs have a distinct “personality” or voice to them — one that’s “in tune” with the subject matter. For instance, a blog about mothering will have a more “maternal” voice than one about, say, antique car restoration.

And on top of everything — a great blog is all about the reader — NOT the writer.

These are some of the hallmarks of a great blog…

And one of the many great things about How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients is you’re not getting just AWAI’s insights on writing great blog copy…

You’re getting insights from some of the best blog writers in the world.

Bloggers who not only deliver great and useful content virtually every day… but do so in a way that’s engaging and fun to read.

No Stone Left Unturned

You can have ZERO knowledge about blogs and blog writing and be an expert by the end of How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients.

This is a “soup-to-nuts” program if there ever was one…

It’s starts with six of the most popular blog post formats and structures — and when to use them.

There’s the “news” format, which is a great method for attracting readers because it ties your blog’s topic to something that’s “top of mind” and newsworthy with your readers.

There’s the ever popular “how-to” — which is essentially an instructional article presented in an engaging and entertaining way…

You’ll learn the incredible power of using personal stories in your blog.

No reader can resist the intrigue that’s created by skillful use of the curiosity gap — the technique that exploits that “space” between what we know and what we want or need to know. Mastering this technique will be one of the most powerful writing skills you will ever learn.

Heather will also teach you the proper techniques for introducing and writing “list-based” blogs, also known as “listicles.”  

There’s also the popular “product review” format — another favorite of readers and Google…

You’ll learn the secret structure and copy techniques to writing all six of these tried, tested, and proven blog structures — with up-to-the-minute illustrations of how they’re executed using actual blogs from the experts.

And mastering these formats is just Lesson One of our “Writing a Great Blog Post” section of the program!

From there’s it’s a “deep dive” into everything you need to know to write these blog formats skillfully.

You’ll learn the six proven formulas for writing great headlines for your blog — another MUST for attracting readers and getting the attention of Google and other search engines.

There an entire lesson on “story writing” that’s easily worth the price of the course all by itself!

That’s because in any kind of writing you’ll do — whether it’s writing a blog, copywriting, or writing a novel — nothing is more powerful than a skillfully-told story.

Stories connect and are memorable. Studies show 5% of people will recall information delivered with fact and statistics, while 63% will recall information delivered via a story.

Best of all — anyone who loves to write can learn great storytelling…

And we show you the very simple formula, starting with the six elements of a good story — like the “sympathetic hero” approach… the “relatable conflict…” the “worthwhile goal” approach… and more.

Heather brings you the best storytelling secrets from the masters she interviewed — simple yet powerful tips like the power of metaphors… the importance of specificity… the importance of not overestimating what your readers already know… and more.

Seeing It All… “In Action”

But we don’t just “teach” you these writing secrets…

We show you — by breaking down actual blogs — how top blog writers from around the world have incorporated these high-level secrets into their writing…

It’s like an “ultimate Swipe File” for bloggers…

You’ll see examples of great headlines and powerful leads written by top bloggers…

You’ll be able to see real-life examples of story-driven blogs, listicles, reviews, news based, how-to’s, and more…

You’ll see firsthand how the best writers use short sentences, short paragraphs, and inject sensory words to bring their writing to life.

You’ll see and be able to mimic how writers keep their blogs relevant… use warm, engaging conversational language… and inject “personality” into their writing…

You’ll get to see, firsthand, how virtually every successful blog you’ll see is built on a simple four-part structure we’ll teach you — and you’ll know exactly how and when to mimic it in every blog post you write.   

And remember…

The writing techniques you’ll learn in How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients will not only help you write your own great blogs…

You’ll also be mastering high-level writing skills you’ll be able to take to any client.

It goes back to what I told you earlier…

Marketing success these days is all about getting relevant and engaging content to their prospective customers…

And one of the surest, simplest, and cost-effective ways of doing that is through a regular, skillfully written blog.

The numbers don’t lie:

One study reported by Optinmonster says businesses that prioritize blogging get 97% MORE LINKS to their website than businesses that don’t!

But remember…

Business owners are NOT blog experts.

They’re great at running their company but most don’t know the secrets to writing engaging copy that their customers and Google love.

Which is why over half of all businesses — and 64% of B2B marketers specifically, according to that same report — outsource their blog writing to skilled writers like you.

Also, businesses don’t write just one blog and call it a day.

In order to stay relevant in their industry, they need to be blogging once, twice, five times, even 10 times a month…

They use these posts on their websites, send them to customers via email, publish them in company news and e-letters.

Which is why many businesses will pay copywriters like you a retainer to write their blogs — anywhere from $1,000 a month to $3,000 a month, depending on how many blogs they need written.

Which means, with as few as three clients where you might spend a few hours a day writing blog content, you could have as much as $9,000 in regular revenue coming in the door…

Become an In-Demand Blog Specialist

Or you may decide to become a blog-writing specialist — and take on even more clients.

Given the average blog comes in at 1,000 words — and can take as little as three hours to write (including research) once you know the structure and secrets to writing a great blog…

You could easily handle as many as six clients who need five blogs a month… and at $2,000 a pop, pocket as much as $12,000 a month in retainers…

That’s $144,000 writing an average of one blog per day

And these dollar amounts aren’t just pulled out of thin air…

They’re based on actual fees a cross-section of copywriters surveyed were recently paid to write blogs for businesses — numbers published earlier this year in AWAI’s exclusive 2020 State of the Industry and Copywriter Pricing Guide.

Plus — writing one blog per day still gives you plenty of time for yourself…

You can take on other copywriting assignments that can pay you more money…

And still have an hour or so a day to write and operate your own blog that can earn you passive income 24/7! 

Which is why How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients doesn’t stop with its Master Class on writing great blog posts…

You Get the “How to Make Money” Part as Well!

By offering good, useful, and relevant information to people who love a subject as much as you do…

You’re writing to a HUNGRY audience…

People who are EAGER TO BUY THINGS related to their hobbies or interests.

Products and services that solve a problem…

Products and services that make performing a task easier and faster…

Products and services that enhance the enjoyment of an activity.

And through the goodwill and trust you build through delivering them the information they crave — you can make money by offering them access to products and services you love most — and would be happy to recommend!

And the money you can make here is… well, it’s unlimited!

In our comprehensive seven-part section on monetizing your blog, How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients shows you all the ways you can build a thriving list using your blog… and then convert that list into a money-making machine.

We’ll teach you all about working with Ad Networks — how to choose the right ones for your audience…  why “looks” matter when it comes to ads on your site… how many ads are “too many”… and how to maximize this free source of money for your site.

You’ll learn all about Sponsored Content — blog articles that are relevant to your audience but clearly are promoting a product or service that will help your readers.

We’ll show you how to attract ideal sponsors for your blog… how to collaborate on a topic or a theme for the article… why YOU should write the content and NOT the advertiser… key questions to ask sponsors before you make a deal or write… tips for writing an effective paid post… and much, much more.

Sponsored content is great because, done properly, you’re providing a valuable service to your reader — AND you’re getting paid as much as $500 (and often a share of the sale) for an hour or two of writing!

Of course, Ad Networks and Sponsored Content are just two ways to monetize your blog…

We’ll also show you how to set up Affiliate Deals to generate income.

Bloggers love affiliate deals because they can be very lucrative… they’re easy to line up… you can control what you’re selling… and everyone wins, including you, the affiliate you’re working with, AND your reader.

Top blogger Michelle Schroeder-Gardner — one of the experts we interviewed for the program — earns over $50,000 per month using her blog to promote affiliate products she loves and uses herself:

“With affiliate marketing, I can enjoy life more and know that I’m still able to earn a great living promoting products that I use and enjoy.”

We’ll show you how to line up potentially lucrative joint ventures, where you team up with one (usually larger) business partner to promote one or an entire line of products related to your audience.

Remember, as a blogger you’re viewed as an EXPERT in your niche.

So not only does your endorsement of other people’s products and services carry weight — so do any books, guides, courses, coaching, or advisory products you create.

We’ll also show you how to create your own products and services you can sell where ALL the revenue is yours to keep.

Imagine, taking a weekend to write a special report… promoting it through your blog to your readers for $29, $39, or even $49…

Then waking up the next day to find thousands of dollars waiting in your account…

Every penny of it yours to keep!

You’ll learn how to create your very own line of products…

Everything from figuring out what you can offer your readers… to planning and outlining your special report or course… to writing and marketing it to your readers AND to your list.

And remember — all the money you earn from your own products is in addition to what you could be making from the Ad Networks, Affiliates, Partnerships, and Sponsored Content!

We’ll Help You GROW Your Readership, Too!

When it comes to making money from your blog, it’s truly a numbers game. The more readers, the more money you can make.

That’s why we’ve dedicated an entire section of How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients to building up your readership over time.

It starts with a crash course in SEO — optimizing your blog for search engines like Google.

Now, I realize…

Just the thought of that can be intimidating. But don’t worry…

A HUGE part of having a “Google-friendly” blog is delivering precise, useful content — which is the primary focus of How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients.

The other part is keywords — those words and phrases your target readers are likely to use when searching for information your blog can help them with.

The good news is there are online tools you can use that will do much of the heavy-lifting when it comes to identifying keywords suited to your blog’s subject matter.

We’ll show you how to use them…

How to interpret the data…

And how to compile those keywords and phrases and “seed” them throughout your blog…

So readers who can benefit most from your content will have the BEST chance of finding you.

But that’s not all…

Heather asked each of the experts she interviewed about their experiences with SEO and she shares their often ignored ‘tricks” for gaining favor with Google…

Like making sure any images you use in your blog are “optimized” in the format, size, and dimension Google prefers… how to write the ideal “meta description” for your blog… and more.

SEO is a great skill to have — and How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients is the perfect “crash course” for writers new to it…

But SEO is just one way to get your blog in front of more and more readers…

Heather digs into how to effectively use the many social media platforms to attract new readers. The experts she interviewed had plenty to say on the topic…

You’ll learn how to create intriguing “must read” social media posts using the content you’ve written in your blog…

How to turn any blog article you write into a vibrant YouTube video with the potential to attract an entirely new category of readers…

The best ways to repurpose blog articles for Medium and LinkedIn as yet another distribution channel for your writing.

Another way to take your blog to the next level is to build successful relationships with industry influencers, publishers, niche experts, academics, readers… even your fellow bloggers!

We show you how to identify them…

How to reach out to them…

How to nurture those relationships…

All the ways you can “give” to them, so you build optimum trust, respect, and a sense of reciprocity among the people who can help you most…

Just think about it…

Reaching out the right way to even a dozen bloggers or industry influencers with just 5,000 readers — that’s a potential 60,000 people you can attract to your blog with a simple “guest post.”

Between simple SEO techniques, social media, and strategic relationship building — you’ll see your readership expand in no time.

If you’re NOT interested in having your own income-generating blog… and would rather simply write blogs for the hundreds of thousands of businesses who NEED BLOG WRITERS…

Here’s more great news!

We’ve capped off How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients program with two crucial tutorials:

How to Write a Blog for Paying Clients

We’ll show you everything you’ll need to become a well-respected, in-demand blog-writing specialist. You’ll learn…

  • How to work with clients…
  • Questions to ask so you have a clear understanding of the goals of their blog…
  • How to do audience research — and get the client to help you…
  • How to plan blog topics that coordinate with marketing campaigns…
  • How to add value (and charge more) using the SEO and social media distribution skills you’ll learn in the program…
  • How to do research for your client’s blog — including how to get most of what you’ll need directly from your client…
  • The draft submission and revision process…
  • How much to charge… when to negotiate retainer deals… and much, much, more.

And don’t forget…

Offering blogging services is a great “foot in the door” to clients who may need additional copywriting, whether it’s writing for their website… a special lead generator report… testimonials and case studies… simple sales letters and emails…

Once you understand the structure and persuasion techniques used in blog writing, you can apply the same techniques to many other projects as well…

Projects you can use to double and triple your monthly fees to clients who are only too happy to pay you for your expertise!

Of course, you can’t write for clients unless you have clients… which is why we’ve dedicated yet another tutorial to:

Landing Blogging Clients

One of the great things about blogging is it’s one of the easiest writing niches to break into — simply because it’s “low risk” for both parties.

Writing a blog is “quick and easy” — a few hours to half a day, tops.

A short, one-time blog article might cost a company $300 to $500.

If they like the work you do and you like working with them, it can lead to a thriving and lucrative relationship for both of you.

If it turns out it’s not the best fit for one or both of you — very little in terms of money and time is lost. Both parties simply move on.

In the “Getting Clients” section of How to Write Blogs for Yourself and Clients, we’ll show you all the best ways for reaching out to companies in your niche.  

One method is to simply do a search for companies that have blogs in your area(s) of interest, identify companies that haven’t posted in several months — and ask them if they’d like you to help them “catch up” on posts.

Chances are that “gap” in posts has been on the business owner’s mind and your offer will be welcomed.

We’ll even show you what to say in an email to ensure the company sees you as an expert… understands the importance freshening their blog posts… so that “first connection” goes off without a hitch and leads to an assignment.

But there’s an even better way to land clients…

And that’s having them find you!

How?

By becoming an expert in a niche you’re interested in… writing a blog about it… and then making sure the hundreds, perhaps thousands of companies who are potential clients see your writing.

It’s an easier process than you might think… extremely effective… and we’ll show you how to position your blog and get it in front of the people who need to see it.
