The Most Profitable Way To Monetize A New Blog (And How I Made $9000 The First Time I Tried It)

By Chris Lee 70 comments

This is Part 3 of 3 in my guide on how to build a profitable blog in competitive niches.

The final part is on monetization. It’s very important that you read Parts 1 and 2 first to fully grasp everything you’re going to read. If you haven’t done so, here are the links.

Part 1: Content
Part 2: Traffic

Every part is connected with the others, so it’s essential you understand everything from the beginning rather than jumping in at the end.

When your blog is brand new (under a year old), things are usually going to be pretty slow. You won’t have much content, you won’t be driving too much traffic, and your presence in the search engines will be minimal.

So then how do you make money? In this post, you’ll learn how to generate up to 5 figures in revenue in the first year with a new blog without having to have a ton of traffic.

The Blog Content Strategy That Builds Traffic, Attracts Links, And Crushes Competitive Niches

A VERY LONG DISCLAIMER: This content plan is for those who are willing to invest the time, money, and effort into building a premium content business. This isn’t a guide on how to put up something quickly and make money as fast as you can by taking short cuts and getting by on “just enough” work. This isn’t a guide on how to put up a $100/month site, or even a $1000/month site. If you’re looking for that, you’re going to waste your time reading this, and you don’t even really need to get into a competitive niche in the first place. This is an in-depth guide on how to build an online publication with the goal of possibly selling it for 7-figures in the future. To do that, we need to do things a little bit differently. Everything about your new site/brand has to be of premium quality – especially content. You need to build a strong brand, grow the right (targeted) audience of readers (and customers), and have the potential to be scaled to multiple times your size given additional resources. If that’s something that interests you, continue reading… 🙂

This is the story of how I turned an investment of a few hundred dollars into over $100,000 of consultancy work – and got to work with one of the most famous people in the world as a result.

Before I get into the story, though, let me make it clear that I have no connection to Chris or RankXL except as a satisfied customer.
