At the end of June, I decided to try something new. Something that I’d heard a lot of buzz about on the internet and something people I know seem to be making a lot of money from!
Now if you’re anything like me, you might be a bit “Oh yeah! the latest, greatest thing” and I would completely understand that. I’ve been working online for over two years now, and believe you me, I’ve seen a lot of those! I’ve listened to lots of self styled gurus, who really are no better off than you and I and have a lot less scruples!
So, I thought I’d give it a go, optimistically because it looked good – actually – it looked great! and, nobody was claiming to be a guru AND, it didn’t require me to pretend to be anything I’m not.
So, if you’d like to know how to blog for money online, then read on! This is a summary of my first months results with the Empower Network. If you’ve already heard about it and just want to know more or to get right in, click here for the fast track!
Here’s what I’ve found….
Doing a blog daily is challenging and fun!
I’ve found myself thinking a lot about what to write about, which in turn has made me be even more vigilant for the positive things in life. I refuse to write negative blogs, I do my best to remove negativity from my life so I’m certainly not going to blog about it! I haven’t missed a day yet and that’s given me a sense of satisfaction too. Bonus no 1!
The people in Empower Networkers are nice!
I do my best to surround myself, even in a virtual sense, by great people so that’s an unexpected bonus – it’s not that I didn’t expect them to be other than great, just that I hadn’t figured it in my reasons for joining Empower Network.
I like audio learning
I never expected that either! I know my best learning mode and it’s not auditory so I didn’t expect to enjoy the recommended daily audio sessions. I listen at times that would otherwise be unproductive and I’ve picked up some good tips and felt really motivated after listening to them too. Another bonus.
I’ve had loads of traffic!
Compared to my Self Help Bible blog, which I’ve put a lot of work into and have been using for over a year, I’ve had 73% more visits to this new Empower Network blog over the same period. Might be something to do with their Alexa ranking which is in the top 500 worldwide lol!
It’s been doubly effective in that I’ve seen a 71% increase in traffic month on month to my original blog and the second best source of referrals to my Self Help Bible blog has been my Empower Network daily blog!
Great results for a mere $25 investment I think you’d have to agree.
Less is sometimes more.
I’ve spent hundreds of hours working on the look of my other sites. Honestly, hundreds even if you think it doesn’t look like it!. I started from scratch on them and the fact that I don’t have to do that on my Empower Network blog has meant I have been able to use all my work time productively this month. That’s a massive bonus there and a big learn as clearly you don’t need bells and whistles, just a good system!
The Empower Network is believable.
I’ve tried lots of things in the two years or so I’ve been working online and only one or two have paid off. I really think that Empower Network may be the game changer. I know I’ll only get out what I put in so I need to keep up the blogging, but the support and training here are the best I’ve seen so far……….. and there’s air of BS either! Not a single hint of ‘fake it till you make it’. No’gurus’, no ‘wide boys’ which is a huge relief after some of the muppets I’ve met online!
All in all, I’m delighted with my first month 1 in Empower Network. I’ll post an update again next month and compare month on month results. And if you want to know how to blog for money online, it seems Empower Network may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

I just wanted to share a great post I’ve read this morning about how you can get your blog on Kindle.
It was shared on Facebook by my FB friend Lilach Bullock, who is always sharing great info on how to do Internet Marketing with integrity, and written by another lady called Sarah Arrow.
If you have a blog, particularly a niche blog which is not as saturated as wider niches such as Internet Marketing, then this might be a great way to get your content out to a bigger audience.
Here’s the link to the article on how to Blog on Kindle!
Email marketing, or e-marketing, is one of the easiest and most efficient ways of marketing online, if it is done correctly. Effective email campaigns will attract your reader’s attention and with an eye catching subject line, sustain it, with interesting, well written text, leading them to follow your call to action. By using a few simple email marketing strategies and effective email management, you can save yourself time and effort and ensure that more of your emails will be opened, read and responded to.

As discussed on the Six Figure Mentors coffee call this morning, a great way to save yourself some valuable time for a small outlay, is to have a Pixelpipe account set for you.
This gives you 100 accounts where you can submit all the articles, videos and slideshows you create to from one place. Great for getting your stuff out there and driving some free traffic to your sites.
We did it through Fiverr.com, which if you haven’t seen before, is a site where you can get just about anything done for $5. It is quite amazing what people will do for $5!
We used a company called SEO5rr, through Fiverr.comyou and they set up a Pixelpipe account for $40. It’s $20 to have the 100 accounts opened and a further $20 if you want to them to put profile info and a picture etc. Here’s a link to one of their ‘gigs’ if you want to have a look. They also offer backlinks and other SEO things so check them out.
Imagine how long it would take you to log into 100 sites, create an account, upload a photo, add a bio etc then confirm it through an email link… We thought it was a very good value for $40 and they were very quick and efficient.
Last night we watched a webinar with Stuart Ross talking about the upcoming launch of the Six Figure Mentors 2.0. This has become the fastest growing on line business system and community that there is today.
Stuart and Daniel (Wagner) have been telling us for weeks that it was going to be big and great and jam packed full of value and whilst we didn’t disbelieve them, to be honest we’ve seen a few launches since we’ve been working online, and they all say that!
However, what we didn’t anticipate, was just how much there would be in the forthcoming system and we were blown away!
If you were to make a list of all the problems faced by online newbies, it would be a pretty big list and most of the issues encountered would be common to most people. Lack of technical know how, feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information available, feeling isolated and even ostracised, lack of direction and focus, not knowing where to start and in what order to do things, not knowing where to get help from etc etc etc and that was just our list!
The new SFM system is going to deal with all these issues and more besides! With ready made web pages that a complete beginner can personalise, an uncomplicated and comprehensive back office system with web hosting, support and autoresponders built in and all the training and guidance you’ll need, at whatever stage of your journey you’re at, I wish it had been available when we started!
The launch is imminent and access is only possible through a founding member, so register your interest with us today!
The Six Figure Mentors are an online community, set up to help like minded entrepreneurs build successful online businesses. They do this in a number of ways, each designed to minimise risk and investment and make the most of whatever time you have available to devote to your business.
Membership of the Six Figure Community is on a sponsorship basis, meaning you have to be invited by an existing founder member in order to join. This helps ensure that new members are guided through the system and given the support, which is critical in the early stages of any business.
Email is one of the most widely used mediums in communication today, both in the business and personal worlds. The best thing about it is that unlike letters or flyers, it can be a two way conversation that is easily built upon. Of course, if the recipient fails to open your message, then email is of no use whatsoever. So, what can you do to ensure that your message gets read? Well, luckily there are a number of things that you can easily do, to improve your chances.
Everybody who’s anybody has a blog these days. You could type just about any subject into Google and find someone who has written a blog about it! So what is all the fuss about? Is it all just hype or is there some substance behind it? What is a blog and do you need one?
Well, if you are looking at promoting anything online; be that a product, service or an idea; then you would be well advised to have a go at blogging in one form or another, or you risk getting left behind and missing out on some free traffic in the process. More >
Another uplifting video for you. The messages are important ones, you have to be in it to win it, dare to make your life the success you deserve!
