On June 30th thehappyflammily.com will officially be nine-years-old. It's hard to believe I've kept this thing running for that long, and it's seen a lot of variations throughout the years. I had originally started the blog as a family journal and had another food blog called The Flammily Kitchen. Sometime around 2012 I merged the two sites and have been blogging here exclusively ever since.

I made a goal this year to start making a consistent full-time income blogging, and to do that I had to implement a lot of strategies that I haven't done the previous eight years on the internet. I've learned so much about how to make money blogging, and how to market your blog in 2020 that I've been able to hit some huge milestones, the biggest was signing onto a new ad network that has dramatically increased my ad revenue by over 2200%! Crazy right? Here are three things I'm doing to make money blogging in 2020.

Use Pinterest to Increase Blog Traffic:

I've had the biggest love-hate relationship with Pinterest since it's creation 10+ years ago. Every blogger I know says this is their number one traffic source and I just couldn't get it to work. This year I finally cracked the code on Pinterest and have taken my account form 100K monthly views, to over 2.6 million monthly views on my Pinterest account. This has led to a dramatic increase in traffic, and is the main reason behind me signing onto a new ad network. You can read all about my Pinterest strategy here.

Russell Brunson 30 Day Challenge:

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you might have seen that I'm participating in a 30 Day Challenge. Russell Brunson recently published Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook For Filling Your Websites and Funnels With Your Dream Customers. I've been reading this book the last several weeks and have been implementing it's teachings to help build my site. It's all about identifying who your dream customers or visitors are, figuring out where they're hanging out online, and then being able to convert them to your site and business. By completing the 30-day challenge, you'll learn key strategies to increase your site traffic.

The biggest problem most entrepreneurs have isn't creating content for blogs, or amazing goods and services for business owners, it's getting their customers to discover that they even exist. Businesses start and fail each year because business owners don't understand the science behind getting customers or website visitors to find them.

It's honestly helped me really focus and identify where I want my blog to go in the future, and has given me tangible, actionable steps, that are evergreen and can be carried over to any platform, no matter what algorithm changes or social media platforms rise up in the future. If you're a business owner or blogger, you need to get your hands on a copy of Traffic Secrets.

Learning The Basics Behind SEO:

SEO (search engine optimization) has been an illusive obstacle for me for ages. It's all about identifying the best keywords that people will search for on google, and then incorporating them into your content to make your page rank and have people see your site when they're searching online. Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook For Filling Your Websites and Funnels With Your Dream Customers, has a lot of great hands on activities that you can work through to help you identify what your keywords are so that you can implement this in your own business. I'm currently attempting to go through my old blog posts and re-write them to be more SEO friendly to increase my passive google traffic, which is pathetically almost existent currently.
