How to Run a Profitable Freelance Business Through Your Blog 1068

’m extremely excited to finally be able to share with you my first book, The Blog Business Funnel. Written and refined over 6 months (since June 2009), it’s an outpouring of knowledge on everything I know and have learned about how to run a thriving freelance business supported only by your blog.

In July 2008 I was studying full-time and freelancing part-time as a writer, copywriter and consultant. In that month, I earned more than $8,000 through my own Blog Business Funnel. Every single cent was earned through jobs that came through my blog.

Was I a veteran freelancer? Nope. I took my first ever client in September 2007, only eleven months earlier—a freelance blogging job. I figured I would start with what I knew!

When I added up my earnings and stared in shock at the final figure, I knew I had stumbled across something incredible.

If I’d known then what I know now, I’m confident I could have cracked the $10,000 mark that month.

The book was borne out of the question: Why do bloggers struggle so much with advertising and affiliate programs, when there is clearly a better way?

While others have written brief articles on the topic of using blogging as the foundation for a freelance business, nobody else has outlined a complete blueprint in book form, sharing everything there is to know. If you don’t have a freelance business yet, you’ll learn how to create one.

Whether you’re a blogger, freelancer, or neither, you’ll learn everything you need to create a Blog Business Funnel system.

It’s More Affordable Than You Think

Most eBooks that teach you ways to run a business online require a serious investment. $97 for one eBook is considered cheap. And for other products, the price keeps climbing. $199. $247. $499!

This product is different – I want it to be accessible to as many people as possible, so that the book isn’t out of reach of anyone. If you walked down the aisles of any bookstore you’d never pay $100 or more for a single book. Why should an eBook be different?

The Blog Business Funnel is $29 USD if you buy it now.

If you do one single hour of billable work as a result of reading this book, it has paid for itself.

Of course, it’s my hope that the book will help you land thousands of dollars worth of clients, all while doing what you love.

This book shows you how to do work that makes you happy, and earn a great, independent living in the process.
