Three and a half years ago, I found myself $238,000 in debt without a means of income. I had to turn my life around and figure out how to keep my home.
I decided to adapt and monetize my existing home décor blog. SEO has been the key to my success and I was able to couple this with affiliate marketing to generate over $20,000 a month in a bit over 2 years.
Over 80% of my affiliate income comes from SEO traffic. I have been consistently making over $20K per month for the last 15 months. Now, I’m down to just $18,000 in debt (yes, I’ve paid off $220,000 in debt…and I’m almost there).
SEO has been the key. SEO traffic is much easier to monetize (and to grow an email list) and it has a compounding effect over time. It is much more stable (and profitable) vs Pinterest and other social media (although a combo is ideal).
I started my blog on a shoe string budget (as all of my money was going to pay my mortgage and my debt), so I had to be clever about how to grow, and SEO has been the ticket.
