How to Make Money Blogging in 2020 ($200k+ in Year One)

If you want to learn how to make money blogging in 2020, you need to ditch the cookie-cutter advice you’ve been reading.

“Expert” bloggers tend to give you generic advice like write about your passions, stay consistent, form good writing habits, and create great content.

Then, a few years from now, you’ll finally have enough website traffic to monetize your blog with affiliate programs, Google AdSense, online courses, podcasting, or selling digital products.

The hard truth is, it doesn’t have to take you years – there’s just a lot of bad advice out there.

To make life-changing money from your blog as fast as possible, you need to start thinking like a CEO and developing systems to scale your blog like a startup, not a hobby.

I’ve worked for high growth startups, and some of the best CMOs, VPs, and Growth Marketers out there. And what did I learn?

Most blogging advice is harmful, not helpful.

You’re sold the dream of passive income and the ability to make money online while you sleep, all while 95% of bloggers still fail. And yet, these “experts” that started over 10 years ago are the only ones profiting the most from blogging.

So I started this blog in January 2019 to track my progress as a brand new blogger using everything I learned in the startup world.

Here’s the first thing I learned – you need to focus less on writing and more on creating systems to scale your blog at startup speed.

Remember, you’re a business owner, not just a blogger.

There are a lot of things I wish I knew before I started my blog. I hope this post helps give you some fresh ideas.

Using the tactics I outline below, I started generating $35k/month by month nine.

And as you can see from my Blog Income Reports, I’m currently making over $80k from this blog. 

This guide covers SEO, keyword research, content marketing, WordPress, and affiliate marketing so that you can make more money blogging this year.
