A friend, AF, wants to make money in his spare-time on the Internet.
He asked me about making money with a blog. I told him: “Forget it.”
Instead, I recommended to AF that he do what I do: sell how-to information products online.
(The method I used is explained on my site www.theinternetmarketingretirementplan.com.)
It has certainly worked out well for me.
I earn a six-figure income online “working” only a few hours a week.
But now that I think about it, maybe I didn’t give AF the right advice.
It’s my feeling that other than the occasional blogger who gets a lucky break — e.g., a book deal, a huge following, or makes money speaking and consulting — most bloggers make little or no money from their blogs.
Am I wrong?
If I am … and you are a blogger who makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in your spare time blogging … can you let me (and AF) know what you did and how you did it?
After all, he could use the extra income (who couldn’t?) and I would hate for him to miss out on an opportunity for blogging profits because of my advice.
Can bloggers get rich online from blogging? What say you?
