If you have decided that blogging is your preferred Alternative Income route, then one of the fastest ways to learn is with Yaro Starak who runs www.entrepreneurs-journey.com. He gives you so much information in an easy to follow format, that literally takes you step by step from wondering what the hell you could possibly write about that makes money, to building up a successful blog.
Yaro has been blogging successfully for years and has created a massive amount of information on his blog, which he has put together one page - Step by Step Guide to Make Money Blogging - so you know exactly where to go to find the information you need.
I like his style. He is what some might call an ´internet guru´ and he is certainly a blogging guru, but he does it in a way that provides lots of value to readers without using the hard sell. Of course he uses marketing tactics and copywriting triggers to get you to enroll in his programs (he is running a business after all),but not before providing you with a ridiculous amount of information for free.
His case studies of students from his programs will certainly be an inspiration and are well worth a read. The different examples show you how people, from all walks of life and blogging about topics in very different markets, can be so successful.
WARNING: If you decide to read his website, you won´t have any excuse to prevent you from starting your own blog. Everything you need is on this page as he directs you to all the resources you need. Make the most of it. Usually you get a trickle of information and are left wandering in the online jungle to figure out the rest for yourself.
I bet you think I must be an affiliate of his because I am gushing over this one page. Wrong. This is not an affiliate link and I am not in his mastermind group. I just get excited when I find something so useful and I know it can help you too!
