I was attracted to this post, for two reasons...
1) It is written by Tracy Walker, who I have followed since being here on Betternetworker
2) it is about Wordpress and how to monetize your blog.
There are variety of different answers to the question how to monetize your blog. What I can say is, that having set mine up, now that it is fully optimised ( which takes a bit of time, but is pretty straight forward when time is taken) and you start filling it with content, quite simply only one thing happens &... On a regular basis~ You get leads and quite a lot of them!
I have been following my leads increase today and while my blog is nothing special, it contains a lot of very useful 'How to' information which cover a lot of areas, such as Articles, blogging, empower network and the one thing you need to do with Empower Network, to ensure that you make a lot of money ( even if you are not all in!)
So endorsing what Tracy says, learning the art of blogging, article writitng and video making on a regular basis, you can earn a significant amount of money, potentially in half the time it would take you now
Applied Education is the difference
