There is a much better way than blogging.

I think most of us want passive income and
traffic, right?

Is blogging passive?

No!

Because you have to write those blog posts. But I don't
want to write everyday or twice a week. I don't even
want to write once a month!

And I don't :)

Because when you write articles that are going to
be relevant and fresh even 10 years later, then
THAT IS the way to get passive traffic and passive
income.


The last blog post that I wrote was 3 years ago. I have
approx. 35 articles which I wrote 3 years ago.

And they bring about 160,000 unique visitors per month.

Yeah, 35 articles=160,000 unique visitors (my website has
a total of 70 pages approx.)

And I haven't written any new articles in the last 3 years.

And they still bring in traffic.

Even 10 years after those articles will be valuable and
fresh. And Google knows this. As years pass by, those
articles get more and more traffic.


So "you need fresh content, you have to write 100 posts
per day" is not 100% true.

And blogging is a bad idea, because you have to
actually write stuff on a regular basis.

I don't want to write stuff on a regular basis. It's HARD WORK.

I don't like hard work.

I want to write a few articles, and then I want them to
bring a ton of traffic and I don't want to write anymore.

So, in order to do that, all you have to do is do a really
really really good keyword research about evergreen
topics and then write those evergreen articles and
create a GREAT PRODUCT and then maintain the
system.

And do whatever you want after that. Create
other products, or go travel or get out of the
house, go to a club, and meet new people
using this line:

"Hey guys, I'm stupid, wanna be my friend? :)"

Yeah, I actually used to do this, and it works.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is this:

You don't have to write lots of blog posts, you
can find the evergreen keywords and then
write articles that are going to be fresh
15 years from now.

So now, you won't have to write regularly.

But you have to do a really good keyword
research. And be smart when writing
articles.

You shouldn't write about a topic that will
be out of date a few years later.
I had to look up what evergreen topics are haha. But good post. Would you suggest writing your posts in your own words/ format and then paying someone to edit it for SEO?

There is a difference between properly run and niched down blogs like the ones you talk about and the 99999999th iteration of a guy spitting out personal development, dating and fitness advice on his new wordpress install, which are the ones we usually get here in the forum and rightly discourage from wasting their time.
What if the personal development, dating, and fitness advice is unique, powerful, or more useful that the rest? Like Boldanddetermined.com and goodlookingloser.com?

My hunch is that the best blogs grow out of a purist with expertise in an area, or at least an interesting personality that can attract other people because they are funny, interesting, or knowledgeable. If I set out to do a blog on investing in penny stocks, it would crash and burn as I have no idea what I am talking about. If I set out to do a blog on eating right, it would crash and burn as nobody would give a shit.

I think you have to bring to the table a blend of expertise, strong articulation skills, marketing skills, and in general you have to be someone that has something to say that people want to hear.

Blogging for the sake of blogging still doesn't work. Blogging for money doesn't work. The cat and the tuna analogy still applies.
This is what bothers me when I consider my blog's future. It's definitely the nth iteration of some guy talking about eating right.

BUT...

I started working out in my garage when I was 14, chugging 48 oz gainer smoothies as mid-day snacks.

When I was 18 I got access to my first gym (at university), and spent the 3-4 hrs a day busting my a$$ in there for the next 4 years of my life. I commuted to school and was the guy that walked around with a giant bag of veggies and proteins, eating whenever I could.

When I graduated at 22, I started competing in powerlifting. I would not eat one calorie that wasn't prepared by me and did not fit my diet plan. I competed in the lowest weight classes I possibly could while maintaining my strength.

Now, at 26, I've picked up rock climbing and plan to compete next year. In rock climbing, being both light and strong is a huge boon, which is what I've spent the last 8 years mastering.

My point is: no matter where life has taken me, fitness and nutrition have been my constant. It's the only subject I feel I have authority over. There are plenty - and I mean PLENTY - of other subjects I've dabbled in but would not feel comfortable trying to provide value with my limited knowledge. How can I provide value through my knowledge (and make a living) when it's such an overcrowded and dead horse beaten market? To make matters worse, I spent my time at university learning something trivial like chemical engineering. I have no degree in nutritional science, no dietitian certifications, etc. No credibility other than my own results (which is what everyone else has and more).

Yet... there are still soooo many misconceptions and misinformation about nutrition that so many people still have. I see this is a problem that needs solving. Still need to figure out how I can make a real impact in that regard. Anyways, end of rant.

Reading this forum is both incredibly inspiring and incredibly disparaging. What a bipole!

I went back and highlighted every time you said "I" or "my" to illustrate a point: you are in a consumption mindset. You are a consumer. You need to shift your mindset to that of a producer.

@Vigilante nailed it: the market does not care who you are. The market does not care about what you've done. All the market cares about is themselves. What can you DO for them?

Instead of asking yourself what the market needs, you are looking within yourself with your current, limited experience. This is a very limiting belief that will lead you down a road of "blogging" which will probably get you nowhere.

Yes, there are counter examples of blogs making money: Bold and Determined, Perez Hilton, etc. But they are very in millions of blogs that simply do nothing. You're basically claiming to be the needle in the haystack, or a winning lottery ticket. I'm not going to spend my time or chase after something where my chances of succeeding are so slim.

You tell me there are misconceptions about nutrition, which I will agree with you, is mostly true. However, there are literally hundreds of thousands of blogs and books that cover this topic. I've read many of them. Most recently, Mark Sisson's book. It changed my life.

So is this NEED really underserved? No, it's hyper competitive. Would I ready our blog? No, I already don't have enough time to read the ONE nutrition and fitness blog I want to read.

Have you read the millionaire fastlane? It's pretty much a prerequisite to joining the forum (well, at least it should be).

Start shifting your mindset from consumer to producer, and focus on what NEEDS, WANTS, DESIRES the market has (there are MILLIONS of them), instead of looking inward at your own experiences.

Every single Entrepreneur that I know did not succeed until they had significant mindset changes that put them way outside their comfort zone. MJ learned to code, Bio learned how to import and sell online, Vig learned how to source from China, this list is endless.

Become a REAL producer: your mindset will change, but it takes time. Give it time.

I wonder, in one year, when you look back at this post, what you will think of becoming a "blogger for profit."

Since you only have to write a few very good
articles, I would suggest writing the articles
yourself.

And since you are the expert on that topic,
only you can write those high quality articles.

Those articles need to be the best ones
in google search results.

Thanks bro. I came up with a response and scrapped it. Three times.

The only thing I can say is you are right, and I will reflect on this. Oh, and also, Mark Sisson is the man.

I (and many others) have also spent trials and much time and commitment learning how to optimize nutrition for health, body, performance, etc. I (and many others) seem to know that my way (or their way) is the most optimal. I was taught by 3DMuscleJourney (You can't argue with their results) and have done body recomposition, powerlifting, jiu jitsu, endurance. I could probably talk about their methods but there is already so many other people doing it and not getting views while sub-optimal diets continue to be popular.

Maybe they are better at marketing/ seo/ or their diets seem easier to follow than IIFYM.

What if your optimal diet/ nutrition contradicts mine? If you are a firm believer in your way of nutrition you will have to convince your readers that your way is the best AND you have to show them what your way is.

A big problem is people don't know how to tell who is right.

I think your problem is not believing that you can do anyways. You can do it but is the amount of effort and time and frustration really going to be worth it to climb to the top of such a saturated market?

You mentioned that you have dabbled into other subjects? If you read through this forum post again you'll find an explanation saying your blog shouldn't be as narrow as one topic. You should cover a variety of topics. That variety of topics that you have dabbled in can be your niche. No one else would be blogging for that specific combination therefore you'd be eliminating all competition.

I promise i had a point but I came back the next day to finish this post and lost my train of thought so i'll just post it anyways lol

What in gods name are you talking about...

Build the blog while you do everything else.

1 Article a day, properly.

It's not hard people.
[HASHTAG]#landfill[/HASHTAG]

"1 article a day."
"1 video a week."
"1000 products per store."
"10000 cold calls per month."

This is what road to mediocrity looks like.

I've been trying to do a video a day. It certainly helped me improve my processes, and get over myself.

I'm not talking about doing stuff for yourself. I talk about doing it as your business.

Content should be rare, of great quality, pursue a certain goal and have a strong spotlight.
Otherwise it's waste.

1 great article will do better than 100 average articles.
1 great video will do better than 100 average videos.
1 great product will do better than 100 average products.

Very good information in here, and not just for "only bloggers".

A lot of it is very relevant to what I'm doing right now. I think the biggest takeaway for me was creating evergreen content. Stuff that is going to be just as helpful in 2, 5, 15 years as it is right now.

That's what I've been doing, but I had also read about those who suggest you use Google Trends, etc, to determine what to create content about. And while some of those subjects that are currently popular might be interesting to website visitors in a few years, a lot of them won't be.

The second biggest takeaway was having a lot of different types of media available on each post. I've already been doing writing, video, and downloadable resource files on each post. Someone recently recommended adding audio (which would actually be extremely helpful to my visitors), and after reading this thread, I'm 100% sure that I need to do so.

So I'll keep to my strategy of having each post on my website be the end-all be-all resource on each topic, but just up my game a tad.

Thanks to all contributors, especially @Vigilante, @Yoda, and @Andy Black for some spot-on insights, and @Greg Rutkowski for putting himself out there to keep the learning and discussion going.

@Greg Rutkowski do you have a progress thread yet?

I hope some of you guys make a killing blogging. I started one once before and managed to get to page 2 of Bing well before I could even find my blog on Google. It's been a few years, but definitely look into some of the other search engines. Bing used to hold something like 30% of the market which is more than enough for you to do well while you work your way up the Google algorithm. I gave up blogging a long time ago though. Engaging an audience just isn't my thing.

This is really cool, one of my first business ventures were blogging. I think JasonR hit the nail on the head.

I was spinning my wheels getting no where because it was centered around me and not the market.

I was spending hours and hours learning SEO knowing that the algorithm will continue to change. It didn't make sense to me but I did it because I guess everyone else was doing it. I eventually stopped because well.. to create an audience through blogs takes a really long time.. and I wanted more money.. xD

Also I think its also really important that you try not to create a blog in a super saturated market unless you can definitely differentiate yourself to the market. (or unless you know copy).

Think about leangains. Super saturated market but his ideas were completely different that the norm. Like a 180.

-Staying lean while bulking,
-eating whenever you want in how many meals you want,
-super minimalist workout.

It went against everything the mainstream was telling you.

Anyways, sorry. Just my two cents

My personal blog/website income to date is around 1/40th of my content marketing income to date. And I've been working on my personal sites it for for around 5x as long!

It's doable, but being a good digital marketer is only part of it. You have to be very driven IMO. I love writing, but writing for my blog is painful!
Hey! I was just wondering something. Blogging and content marketing can go hand in hand can it not? I'm actually curious about your thoughts on this since this is the approach I'm currently undergoing. Build a blog with content based on products you attend to sell. Or is there a huge difference between your content marketing strategy and your blog? Thanks in advance for your time! Cheers.

@mjblackwood honestly, as someone that sells digital marketing, it's semantics. To some, content marketing and blogging are the same. To others blogging is blogging and content is used on blogs, social, emails, etc.

Call it whatever makes sense to you. If you sell these services, your clients will have their own names for it anyway - use the names they are familiar with.

Also I think it is worth mentioning that you don't want to just create quality content for your audience. You also need to create quality content for the people who will actually link to it. Your audience, most likely, doesn't have a website that they can link to you from. So you need to think about creating content that other websites will link to too. The easiest way to do that is to analyse what is already out there in your market and what is getting lots of links/social shares etc. They work out what you can do.

Of course this requires actively outreaching as well...which I always find difficult. But if your content provides value to them and their audience...you should do ok.

I think I'm mostly caught up on this thread. Tried to quickly go through it this morning. Lot's of great info, so thanks to everyone who contributed valuable posts.

I started a niche blog recently -- around a month or so ago. The approach was different from what others have posted here, but maybe you'll find something valuable in it.

It began after I started working with a client who asked me to help her deal with a specific problem (copywriting related). This is my biggest client, and as I focused on solving this problem for her, I realized it's actually a HUGE problem that a LOT of people in her sphere have.

So I set out to solve the problem...not just for her, but for everyone.

At first I set up the blog. It's not a personal blog. It's an aggregator to accept user-submissions over time. I got content rolling to fill up the pages (valuable content) so it doesn't look like shit.

Meanwhile I focused on moving deeper into my client's network. As a result, within a couple of weeks I was positioned as an expert under her (bestowed credibility + authority) and soon had a network of 50,000+ in the niche, which has since grown to around 100,000+.

After that I let a couple of writers take over some of the content (paid, though one refuses to accept it) to ease some of that burden from me.

Now I've also opened it up for contributor submissions. They get to tell their story - they help other people going through the same stuff they are - and they get to link back to their programs/websites/etc.

The blog isn't monetized (yet), but it's getting attention, eyes, and an audience organically. No paid advertising so far. I just made something to solve a problem in the niche, then reached out to my network and said, "hey, I've got this thing...solves this problem...you're invited."

There's very little social media promotion. Almost the entire audience comes from an insider network that grew out of solving one specific problem.

First I solved the problem for people in my client's Facebook Group, then they let their own private groups know about the solution and even offer personal introductions. The pattern repeats from there and soon I had the attention of influencers with groups ranging from 50 people to 30,000 or more.

Anyway, that's pretty much where it's at right now. I have numerous people writing personal stories to contribute this week and beyond, high-value content getting posted from my writers, and a blog that's growing pretty fast without funneling much cash into it so far.

I haven't decided how to monetize it yet. This whole thing grew out of a need -- not a desire to create a blog, and it's clear there's a lot of opportunity. Just gotta decide which way to grow.

So I guess my point is...

Network. Solve problems. Create value. Get... [ I'll fill in this space once I figure it out :) ]

What first occured to me - was the idea of creating a blog (commonly enough). Not for money purposes, but for learning purposes. To get me active. To perhaps connect with people and share (something?). Heck I just want to START - I'm forcing something to happen when I'm lacking creativity. I'm one week in the forum and all I do is lurk and educate myself with books.
