    It’s very generous of you Jeff to educate young businesses that you know would only dream of being able to use your services. But, actually an awesome business move because you are teaching people to get themselves into a position to need you.

      Thanks for the comment Tricia. Yes, education and also inspiring people to realize that they “can” do it, is what I love to share.

    Hey Jeff,

    I’m actually following these steps now. When I first started, I also felt naked LOL… but as time progress, you learn more, do more, give more, and receive more. The best part of it are those “aha” moments you get. But yes this is right on key! I’ve seen a big difference this year compared to last year, and it would be great for those beginners that are just getting started! Thanks for the share!

      Yes, there are steps along the way where the light bulb moment occurs!

    Hi Jeff,

    Love it man. I too was being stalked by creditors….and actually went bankrupt when I started the blogging thing. Yet through earned marketing, by writing content, and tweaking, and connecting with successful folks, a few years later I’m writing these words from a beach front home in Savusavu, Fiji, through blogging.

    Crazy, when you think about it for a minute. If you’re willing to work, and learn, and trade your time in for something bigger than you, something truly special, you can start a successful blogging business by marketing on a shoestring budget.

    Your post is spot on, your earned traffic note, well I resonate so much with that. There’s where the success is, because when you pay in terms of time, mastering a craft, you’ll build your name up, and Google, nor any paid ad stream, nor any channel can take your name and knowledge and brand away from you, unless you stop being true to you.

    I’m a fan of using free marketing methods. 5 years after starting the blogging bit I still only pay for hosting, and a domain. All else is organic for me, and thank goodness it was because it forced me to learn my craft and hone my skills inside out to drive targeted traffic to my blog.

    Awesome insight Jeff. Thanks once again for the helpful, inspiring share.

    Ryan

    This is great. I’m just starting a blog. I never really expected to do this. I began a homeschooling journey due to an illness that was going to require my daughter to miss a lot of school. It began with me posting info I thought others could use on Facebook. Those posts grew longer over time and I unintentionally built an audience of homeschool moms and teachers. They have encouraged me to move my longer posts to a blog. I have a lot of info to share, but no idea how to blog. I just continue to follow your advice and take it one step at a time. So thankful that Kim Garst suggested your ebooks to me.

    Hi Jeff,

    As usual, I have found your blog post very informative and helpful. It is great to know that it is possible to make headway without the need of a huge investment of cash. Like others have posted, I am only really at the beginning of my blogging journey and find that motivation and the ability to set aside time to concentrate on writing is the biggest hurdles I face. I also should always carry a notebook, as I often have ideas when I am out and about but have forgotten them by the time I am in a position to capture them.

    Thanks again for sharing this information.

    Regards,

    Michael

    As always, your article is both insightful and very useful. As a new blogger, I am taking it slow, yet simple with some of the steps you just laid out. Because this is a personal blog, (and especially talking about a cause of people that have aphasia, a language disorder,) I am very passionate to learn as much as I can about blogging. As always, your helpfulness is appreciated.

    (By the way, if you’d like to see what aphasia is, not only go to my blog but also the National Aphasia Association at http://www.aphasia.org.)

    Wonderful blog post Jeff! Really informative with a ton of useful tips – especially around building up an email list, which is something I see many bloggers sadly overlooking.

    I’d add that in my experience, once you’ve built up some raving fans of your blog that you shouldn’t be afraid to occasionally share content with them directly. You’d hope that all your blog fans read all your new content, but in reality people are busy so it’s worth directly drawing their attention to articles they may find relevant and interesting and, in turn, share with others.
