We went from $1,000 blogging to making over $20,000 per month from our blogs… in just 3 months!
And now we make over $50,000/month blogging...
It might sound insane, but Lauren and I started in the exact same seat as many of you are sitting in now.
We had a blog and were making some money from it using affiliate marketing and other methods, but we were not close to our goal of living the dream as full-time bloggers.
Many of you are
probably feeling like
there’s some sort of ceiling preventing you from earning
serious money from your blog.
I get it.
As a blogger, there are two problems you face when
trying to scale your blog and what you do.
Ironically, they have very little to do with overall traffic
and much more to do with
how you monetize that traffic.
But more on that in a minute.
In our first year of blogging, we were able to progress into this...
Those are snapshots from our first year blogging. where we made over $103,457.98 with our health and wellness blog.
I know that might be frustrating for some of you to hear if you’ve been blogging for a few years and are still trying to break out of the $500 - $5k per month range, but hear me out...
Our health and fitness blog, Avocadu.com, was registered on Sep 25, 2015, and a year later on Sep 25, 2016, that’s how much money we had earned! Over 90% of the total sales volume came from sales of our digital products and services.
We figured that we’d rather sell our own products than affiliate products.
This process led to massive increases in revenue.
...and it didn’t stop there!
Actually, it got wayyyy better over time... These are the monthly reports from our health and fitness blog, Avocadu, for just ONE month (March 2017).
We are currently making over $20,000/month with our health and wellness blog, and the income that we make on Create and Go puts us over the $50,000/month mark, which is just mind-boggling to us!
Plus, more importantly than making money is what the money has done for us and the experiences it has allowed us to have! The life it has shown us…
We’ve gotten to travel to Machu Picchu, Bali, and all over the world because of blogging. It has allowed us incredible time and life freedom that we really never dreamed of.
But again, I (Alex) need to emphasize to you the fact that we were exactly where you were in February of 2016…
Maybe some of these feelings will resonate with you…
Overwhelmed about making the correct next step.
Webinars, launches, email funnels, ads, etc. What’s the right next step? If you’ve been blogging for more than a moment, you know it can be a bit frustrating trying to figure out what direction you should go in. The sad truth is that it can also turn out to be overwhelming and disappointing when you find out most “strategies” and “guru tricks” out there don’t actually work without buying some $2,000 course.
Everyone is now an expert about being an expert.
Launches about launching. Blogging about blogging. Webinars about webinars. I can’t scroll through my Facebook feed these days without some new “guru” popping up trying to sell me their webinar system for $1,000+. From personal experience, we know how different it is making money from our health blog than it is from our make money blog at Create and Go. That why we share the lessons from Avocadu (our health blog) because we don’t want to be those people who only blog about blogging.
Spending a lot of time working for little money.
If you’re a little more seasoned blogger, this can be a very real feeling. You just don’t understand why some bloggers can make so much while you hustle your butt off and hardly make anything. You constantly feel like they know something you don’t.
Losing your motivation.
You know you are a smart person and able to be a full-time blogger, but some of the doubts are starting to creep in. “Will I ever make this work?” or “Are the people who make it just lucky??”
Sick of working your job and ready to become a full-time blogger.
It can be so draining waking up and working at a job you don’t like to build someone else’s dream. You want to be a full-time blogger, but you need a formula for making a full-time income!
If you’re feeling ANY of these, you are in the right place, my friend.
You can successfully sell thousands of digital products and services through your blog, while being honest and never scammy!
We do it everyday.
I know when we started blogging in Sep. 25th of 2015, we had no idea if we would ever make the whole blogging thing work. The only thing we knew is that it would be worth trying.
Seeing dozens of people not only making a living, but making hundreds of thousands of dollars blogging, sounded like a dream to us. So, we went for it...
We spent a couple months trying things out and then decided to go all-in blogging on January 7th of 2016 when we quit our full-time jobs, sold our cars, moved back in with our parents' home, and decided we would give ourselves 1 year to succeed with this whole “internet blogging thing.”
And at that time, we were not making ANY money. Not a single cent. It was crazy, but we decided to make some sacrifices to give blogging an honest effort.
In January in 2016, we had made our first little bit of income off the Amazon Associates program ($85 for the month). This was proof that it was possible to actually make money with our blog!
But we were still nervous to try selling digital products again...You see, we had created a digital product before (back in November 2015), and it failed. Big time. We had ONE person buy it.
Perhaps it was the confidence from the Amazon sales that pushed us to keep moving forward, but we decided to try selling affiliate products FIRST before spending any more time creating another product.
After a LOT of trial and error trying to sell an inexpensive affiliate product about yoga, we stumbled upon one of the major lessons found in this course. And everything started working…
We started to making $20 a day, then $50 a day, then over then next month we had our first $100 day!
We couldn’t believe it. We would scream with excitement over those first few sales and high five and hug like we had won the Super Bowl. I will never forget it.
This was because every digital product sold pushed us one step closer to our dream. Many late nights we spent hunched over our computers drinking copious amounts of wine trying to figure it all out were starting to actually pay off.
More importantly, we felt like we were going to make it. Despite our parents, friends, and family all doubting us and thinking we were crazy, we would prove them wrong.
We would make it as full-time bloggers and live life on our terms.
You can have all of this and more with the brand new system we have created...
Our lives have done a complete 180 from those long days of work in Seattle.
We’ve even made it up to $50,000 a month now, which was another milestone for us! And if it was not for blogging, it would have never happened for us.
There are lots of bloggers out there that are frustrated and searching for the process that will take their blog to the next level.
This is how you do it. Our product is a step-by-step walkthrough of how to make an incredible income selling digital products and services with your blog.
But before we show you the product, let’s look at the common mistakes you are probably making (we know, because we've made them all!) ….
7 Common Mistakes You’re Probably Making As a Blogger
1. You don’t know how to create sales-centered content.
Creating content that is sales “centered” may seem simple enough, but it’s the difference between what made our blog thrive and just survive in the beginning.
2. You think quantity of visitors matters more than quality.
There are blogs with low visitors that make six figures in a single month, and there are blogs with millions of visitors that hardly make any money. It’s all about the quality of the visitor you are bringing in to your blog.
3. You don’t understand how to build an email trust funnel.
You may be using email, but chances are you’re not using it right. The right way both creates an amazing connection with your audience AND provides immediate sales after subscribing.
4. You don’t believe you’re good enough.
Hahahahaha, no. Let’s get this out of the way. You absolutely awesome just as you are. Being a bad-ass blogger is something you can and will accomplish. Don’t ever let those doubts drown out your dreams.
5. You don’t know the stupidly insane importance of building a high-converting sales page.
You know the difference between a sales page that converts at 1% vs. 3% - Triple the profits. If you get 100 visitors to that page, you will sell 3 products instead of 1. That difference ALONE is why many bloggers fail, but you’ll have the EXACT formula.
6. You think building a product sounds scary.
It’s not. It just sounds scary when haven't done it yet. After completing 5+ successful digital products, we know the exact formula for making sure it’s a success every time.
7. You don’t have proper guidance.
Yes, you can be a professional “value” hunter on the internet, scouring for information on how to make money blogging, but it will leave you with a bunch of fragmented advice that won’t fit together. The key is understanding how everything works, A-Z, for your blog.
Take a second an image a world where you could…
Sell digital products that actually change the lives of your customers.
You can not only sell things, but when you truly learn the art of helping solve people’s problems, your customers will not only thank you but LOVE YOU for selling to them.
Here is a testimonial from the online weight loss program that we created:
Make thousands of dollars every month on autopilot.
Wake up every morning, check your email with a warm cup of coffee in hand, and see new sales being deposited into your bank account. Yes, it’s a real thing…
Have supreme confidence around the products you sell.
It’s easy to sell products you love. You may not consider yourself a salesperson, but there’s no need when you are simply helping other people find solutions to their problems.
Never be scammy or feel weird about selling.
You’ll have the firm confidence and ultimate belief in the products you recommend to your readers. Selling will never be weird for you, because you’ll actually be helping other people.
Turn your blogging business into your full-time career.
You’ve achieved what most people in this industry dream about. You’ll get to wake up everyday working on something you care about.
Make blogging not only your career, but your lifestyle.
The final step is when blogging takes over your life. You have complete freedom and control over the direction you’re headed, thanks to your blog.

Who is Six-Figure Blogger For?
This course is not suitable for brand new bloggers. If you've started a blog and have made your first bit of income ($0-$1,000) but are looking to expand that growth, this course is for you! If you've just launched your blog and don't have any traffic yet, this course is going to be a bit too advanced for you!

If you want to create some slimy product and trick people into buying using our methods, this ain't for you, holmes. This is about creating real and honest products that truly help people reach their goals. These methods are powerful and you don’t get to 6 figures being a jerk.
Those interested in creating your own products or learning how to sell to your audience better.
Both are covered extensively. There is some more advanced affiliate marketing training in this course, because there is a lot of crossover between selling ANY digital product. There is also TONS of sales page and email marketing training in this course as well that can really make a huge difference to your bottom line.
We know many of you still have full-time jobs, so we do our best to break down everything in as simple of a manner as possible. There’s a ton of content in the course (there’s no way around it), but we included only what’s absolutely needed and left out the fluff.
Who is Six-Figure Blogger Not For?
People looking to get rich quick.
You won’t buy this course and wake up a millionaire. If that’s your expectation or desire, this course is not for you, my friend. It takes time to become a successful blogger, but this course is designed to cut down that time drastically for you!
Anyone who has JUST started their blog and hasn't started driving traffic yet.

Personal blogs that don’t really want to make money.
Blogging as a hobby is fine, and there’s nothing wrong with it, but this course is about making actual money from your blog. If you’re just blogging for fun and have no real vision for a future, this course is not for you.
Anyone scared of rolling up their sleeves and doing some work.
No, you don’t become a six-figure blogger or become elite at ANYTHING without putting in work. Welcome to life.
