You Could Blog

How To Become A Successful Blogger

We started You Could Travel in April 2016 and little we knew at the time that our blog will become one of our main sources of income. Back then, we started our travel blog as a way to document our journeys and share our stories with like-minded individuals. Nowadays, we are making a full-time income from our blog and work in partnership with leading global brands who rely on our expertise to better target their audience and create tailored content which goes viral, and ultimately, sells.

Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Francis of Assisi

You Could Travel has been our way of discovering how to blend the art and science of running a successful business. As we learned, nothing happens overnight. You need to be patient and most importantly, you need to have a solid business plan. Worry not, that’s why we are here, to help you transition from “I want to start a blog” to “I can’t believe I can make a full-time income out of it”.

It took us almost two years to get to 120,000 monthly page views. But what is traffic without having a clue on how to monetise it? Last year, we decided to invest time and energy into transforming You Could Travel, from a casual travel website, into a strategic money making business.

It’s not an easy task, but everyone can do it. Most importantly, if we did it, so can you. We’re here to guide you on how to get to the financial freedom you’ve always dreamed out. So let’s put your dreams into action!

Success is where preparation and opportunity meet

Day 1 - How to pick a winning domain and niche for your blog

Have you ever stop to wonder why some brands have such good names which stick? There is no coincidence. It’s just the result of creative marketing and clever entrepreneurs who understood the role of picking a winning niche and name for their brand. Learn their secret and apply the techniques to your winning business.

Day 2 - How to find your target audience

Wondering how come that certain people are loyal to specific brands? That’s because leading brands employ intelligent people to match perfect customers who are interested in their product. In today’s modern day and age, marketers are the matchmakers between products and the right audience. Learn how to target your best audience and how to transform your readers into loyal buyers.

Day 3 - How to develop a leading brand

Apple started in 1976. Do you reckon anyone knew who Steve Jobs was back then? Of course, not! All successful brands have two things in common: they started from nothing, but employed creative strategies on how to differentiate themselves from the crowd. Not only you need a unique product, but you also need that added value which your specific target audience needs. That’s where your brand comes into play. Learn how to create a leading brand from day one, and how to avoid the most common mistakes most people do when they start a new blog.

Day 4 - How to utilise SEO and social media to your advantage

Everyone tells you that content is most important on your blog. True, but nobody tells you how to utilise it to your advantage. Learn the importance of SEO and social media promotion and find out exactly how to craft your articles in order to attract the traffic you need. In this chapter, you will understand how to target keywords and how to create titles which are clickable but NOT click bait.  

Day 5 - How to make money blogging (plus winning links to get you started)

You have a blog, a brand and a crazy appetite for success. But leads are what’s missing. In this chapter, you will learn how to actually monetise your blog and what are the easiest and fastest ways you can start making money immediately (with no investment from you).

Bonus lesson (plus free business plan template)
