We all know starting a blog is daunting enough. After you fight all the negative voices telling you NOT to do it and jump in, there’s a gazillion things on your mind to accomplish. If you’ve started this journey as a side hustle, at the top of your list is probably getting that revenue stream flowing. Well, the simplest way to do that is shown below:


Monetized Content + Traffic to your Blog = Income

Lucky for us, there are experts who’ve been down the road and can save you the trial and error, fall and get up again strategy. And because we newlymoms are all about efficiency, you can trust we’ve researched the best resources on the topics at hand.

Step #1 – Monetize Your Content

To monetize your content – the go-to all around the blogging world is Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing. This course, created by Michelle Schroeder-Gardner of Making Sense of Cents goes through step-by-step what affiliate marketing is, how to implement it effectively on your site and how to build trust and community around your recommendations. This course can take you from 0 to 60 in 3.5 when it comes to monetizing your content.

Step #2 – Funnel Your Traffic

If you haven’t heard – Pinterest is the golden egg of funneling free traffic to your website. The only downside is that you can spend way too much time going through a trial and error phase of what pins work and which don’t, the best times to pin and in what order and how to grow your following consistently and effectively. This coursePinterest Traffic Avalanche, created by Alex & Lauren of Create and Go – gives you the low-down on ALL of these things so you can hit the ground running with funneling your traffic.

Pinterest Traffic Avalanche Pinterest Course

In our humble opinion,

these courses — Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing and Pinterest Traffic Avalanche are way undervalued for the amount you’ll get out of them – if you put in the work. And let me say this – the call to action is not for the faint of heart. If you want to build a business around your platform and actually develop community – not just customers – you’ll need to be up for the undertaking. You’re embarking on something grand, much more than your typical 9-5 job. And it doesn’t always come easily. But with the right tools, it doesn’t need to be 9-5 hours either.

These courses come with lifetime access to updates that the creators will incorporate when topics like SEO, Algorithms, etc. change.
