Discover the Key to Earning Money as a Blogger:
Your Blog's Business Plan
Nina Amir, Certified High Performance coach and bestselling author and author coach/trainer
Looking for new ways to subsidize your writing and blogging efforts, increase your exposure online, and solidify your platform? A blog provides one of the most efficient and productive ways for authors and entrepreneurs to achieve all three of these results.
You also can earn more money by increasing your expert status and building a business around your blog and your fiction and nonfiction blogged book—or any type of book. Creating a blog and using it as your business’ address on the Internet will increase your discoverability in search engines as well.
If you want to build your blog into more than just a jumble of blog posts—if you want to make some money as a blogger, you need a plan. In fact, you need to treat your blog like a business and create an actual business plan for your blog.
Of course, you might make money from your blog with advertising if you have enough readers, but many niche blogs do not have that kind of traffic or enough subscribers. You could try selling affiliate products—ones that aren’t your own, but again, you need to have enough readers to make this strategy work well.

I’ve always had a passion for writing so blogging was a natural extension for me. It wasn’t until I participated in Nina Amir’s “How to Build a Business Around Your Blog” course that I realized that I can find real success with my writing – by treating it not just as a passion, but as a BUSINESS.
Nina showed me exactly how I can take control of my future by integrating my dream of living the writer life and integrating it into today’s world. Thanks to Nina, I now know the exact steps I need to take for achieving success with my writing through my blog.
