Rob Benwell is perhaps the most successful blogger on the internet today. The proof is that Blogging to the Bank is up to it’s 3rd version in only two years. Rob really does update his information to ensure his customers are getting the latest techniques to make money online.
The great aspect of Blogging to the Bank is that it is for everyone. If you already have blogs that are struggling to earn even a few dollars a month, or if you are just starting out you can pick up Rob Benwell’s program and fast track your way to generating traffic and income.
The guide contains perhaps the most comprehensive techniques to specifically generate traffic to your site. But that is just the start Rob goes through the complete road map and calls it “The BluePrint of a Blogging Millionaire.”
Perhaps the best aspect I liked about this guide is that Rob not only shows you how to make ongoing money with a blog, but importantly shows you once you have a successful blog up and running that you also have the option to SELL the blog for six figures or more! A lot of other guides I have reviewed missed this aspect.
Selling your blog is a fantastic way to make money. Some people do not always like the aspect of having to constantly update their blog sites. But are experts in setting up blogs to ensure maximum revenue and traffic. While not a comprehensive guide Rob has specific detail about this little known technique of ‘site flipping’.
Think of it as building a basic a house and reselling. You create the site and sell it for huge profits. You can even purchase other people’s blogs that have done a poor job, fix them with the techniques you learn in this guide and re-sell for massive profits! You need to think of you blog as an online asset.
Another aspect that is missed by blogging guides is the importance of email list building. Most guides fail to understand why list building is still a key aspect to make money EVEN when you have a blog. Most people assume that since I have a blog site and update regularly and has an RSS feed I do not need to have an opt-in strategy. Blogging to the Bank goes into detail as to why this is important and a key source of your income.
What about if you do not have a blog and don’t know where to get started? Don’t worry, Blogging to the Bank really caters to the novice with specific strategies on selecting the correct niche that will ensure you can make money. It is important however to understand that you need a niche that YOU are interested in. I think that is one aspect Rob misses in this guide.
If you have no interest in the niche that you are blogging about it is going to eventually turn into a grind and this will come across in the content that you produce. This aspect of blogging can be a whole topic in itself, perhaps Rob will update it in Blogging to the Bank 4! It is important to have a passion about your blogs topic. As someone that has followed Rob Benwell’s techniques, where I have had a personal interest in that niche my income has been 2-3 times greater. Simply because I did more, created more content, worked harder to get traffic and generally enjoyed blogging more.
Result, I got greater rewards. It is not just about selecting profitable niches. The key is a niche that is profitable AND you have an interest in.
For people that are also new, or even for those that already have blogs, Rob goes into specific SEO (Search Engine Optimization) techniques to generate traffic and ensure you have high rankings in search engines. Updated for version 3, Rob explores specific Web 2.0 traffic generating techniques. I had not really thought much of social bookmarking and social sites as a method of generating traffic and stuck mainly to article marketing.
But Rob really opened my eyes to what I was missing out on. Think more then MySpace or Facebook here. I came across sites that I had never heard of that now generate 100’s of visitors to my blogs AND have implemented the techniques to many other standard websites.
The basics of creating your blog. While this seems like a trivial point, it is perhaps one of the keys to ensuring your success. Sites such as Blogger and Typepad are great platforms and allow novice users that simply want a personal blog to get up and running very quickly.
But if you want to make money blogging, Rob goes into the specifics why owning your blog with your OWN domain name is a key to success. Rob even walks through the basics of how to register a domain and select a host provider. It is much easier then you think and only takes a few minutes to set-up.
These are the main points that I personally appreciated from Blogging to the Bank, Rob Benwell is thanked on a daily basis for the assistance and techniques he teaches people on how to make money online. If this is something you have struggled with or are looking to start a blog then Blogging to the Bank is a complete comprehensive guide.
