How to make money blogging

Learn how to really make money from your blog with Zac Johnson

In-between recording audio for my new content marketing course, I've managed to put together an excellent new episode of the Content Champion podcast – and it's an entertaining show with Zac Johnson on how to make good money blogging in 2015.

We're learning from the master here folks, because Zac has been making real money online for over 18 years, and has been a successful affiliate blogger and product creator since 1997.

Founder of multiple businesses including, and – Zac also runs the highly popular podcast ‘Rise of The Entreprenuer'.

Most Bloggers Make Zip, Nadda, Zilch

It's a sad truth that most people don't make much or indeed anything from their blog – whether they're blogging for a business or blogging as a business.

So given his experience, Zac's advice on monetization is really worth listening to and his proven techniques will definitely help you see the wood for the trees in terms of what's currently working.

Zac's a lucid speaker and imparts killer strategic and tactical know-how for nearly half an hour during the course of this call – and he was very generous with his time in sharing such priceless information. So get yourself a coffee and make sure you get comfortable – as this one's not to be missed.

We covered the following subjects in this fascinating episode:

  • Zac's backstory and how he got started in online marketing
  • Why most people don't make any money blogging and what they're doing wrong
  • An overview of the best montetization models that are currently working
  • The affiliate blogging model or the blog product funnel model – which one Zac would go with and why
  • The importance of creating and promoting epic content if you want to successfully monetize your blog
  • How different types of blog posts and content achieve different things
  • Which traffic tactics are working best for Zac in driving targeted visitors to his sites
  • Why your email list is essential to most blog monetization models – and how to run one
  • Where we can find Zac online and connect with his work

Plus! The PS Question! Zac shares some great advice here that's worth the price of admission alone!

    I have watched Zac work online for years now, as we have worked together for about 3 on Blog Engage. He has had such great success and I hope it keeps growing for him. Anyone who works that hard deserves to be a success.
