I went from band director to full-time blogger making nearly $200,000 per year in just two years.
If there's one thing that any blogger (or anyone that's about to jump into the game) finds out, it's that monetizing a blog isn't nearly as easy as all of the income reports out there make it seem.
At least, that's the way it is in the beginning. There are tons of great ways to make money blogging, and strategies like affiliate income, ad revenue, and sponsorships really do work...but there's a catch.
If you don't have massive amounts of traffic, it's hard to make a full-time living as a blogger.
You may be able to make money here and there, but the reality is that you have to have a lot of eyeballs looking at your site to drive significant revenue from your efforts.
That's where this course comes in. Make Money Marketing takes a different approach to blog monetization than anything else out there. It contains the exact strategies that I used early on in my blogging career to make a full-time income, all while still growing my blog at the same time.
Now, I make nearly $200,000 per year with my online blogging and marketing business, and my site reached over 1,000,000 people in 2017 alone.
Providing digital marketing services through your blog is the fastest way to make significant income as a blogger.
I started my personal finance blog, Millennial Money Man, back in 2015 after I had finished paying off $40,000 of student loan debt on my teaching salary in 18 months.
Like a lot of bloggers, I quickly found out that there were a lot of people out there who had done similar things...and now they were blogging about it and working from their computer full-time.
At the time, I was a band director who wasn't very happy with my career choice. My site didn't have much traffic at all, but I still felt like I could do it full-time.
I was that passionate about blogging.
So, I did something crazy...and quit my teaching job just six months starting Millennial Money Man.
Everyone thought I was making a huge mistake, but I believed in myself and thought I could make money quickly as a blogger.
Then, reality set in.
After three months of struggling to bring in any income from my site, I realized that I had to do something else to bring in money. The problem was - I didn't want to give up on my dream.
That's when I had my "lightbulb moment."
I was in the process of purchasing an engagement ring for my wife, and decided to go with a local, family-owned jeweler in my area.
As I was looking through their site for a contact page, I realized that they had a blog.
The best part? It sucked. They had no idea what they were doing!
When I started poking around a little more, I noticed that they were doing all of the same things that I was doing with Millennial Money Man.
They were producing content, driving people to specific places on their site, and trying to reach people through social media. But I could tell that they didn't have someone running their site that actually knew what they were doing.
I contacted them to see if they need any help, and after some back and forth and a few weeks of trying to stay on their radar, they gave me a shot.
Within six months, I had picked up more local business clients and had matched my former teaching salary. I was able to do this work on the side while I grew my blog, and the rest is history.
Now, I run Millennial Money Man full-time, and also manage a small digital marketing agency. I make more money than I ever thought I would in my twenties, and I work from my laptop every single day.
In the Make Money Marketing course, I teach the exact skills and strategies that I learned from running a blog to help small businesses thrive online.
Most small businesses need help reaching customers online, but they don't have someone on their team that knows how to make it happen.
That's exactly what this course is going to teach you how to do.

An in-depth strategy that will teach you how to actually make money through your blog quickly.
The "Make Money Marketing" course is hands down the best web course I have taken in quite sometime. I was able to learn how to run my digital marketing company efficiently and effectively in just a few hours. The videos and resources Bobby provides are both high quality and easy to use. I was able to procure a client just four days after finishing the course. Thanks Bobby!

Does this sound familiar?...
You're trying so hard to grow your blog, but not seeing results. You're spending so much time creating content, growing your social media following, and doing everything that the "pros" seem to do without the same results.
New bloggers seem to be passing you up. You're seeing income report after income report from bloggers that have figured out the key to success. As hard as you try, you just aren't seeing the same results.
Losing your motivation. You keep hearing the advice to "push through" and "keep going", and you're wondering if you're wasting your time with this blogging thing. Will it ever really happen for you?
You're tired of your day job but don't see a way out. You keep seeing other people make full-time income online, but you're worried that you'll never figure out how to do it and stay trapped in a job you hate.
Were you nodding your head to anything you just read? Cool. You've found the right course.
If you keep trying the same things that aren't bringing you success, you're spinning your wheels.
I went through all of the same struggles that most bloggers do, until I decided to do something DIFFERENT.
I wasn't going to wait for blogging success to come to me. I went out and took it, and you can too.
Take a second and imagine a world where you...
...start bringing in significant income from your computer. People pay you to help them, using skills that you already learned from blogging
...have money to reinvest into your blog. You are finally able to pay for a nicer website, get the coaching you've wanted, and grow your blog faster using income that you make from marketing.
...aren't struggling to make extra money. Now you can invest more, pay off debt faster, and worry less every day.
...turn your blogging passion into a legitimate full-time job. Most people wish they could get to the point where their blog actually supports them financially, and you're actually doing it.
It happened for me through digital marketing. Now it's your turn.
It's all right there in front of you. If you can run a blog, you have the skills to make this all happen. Now you just have to reach out and take it.

“Make Money Marketing” isn’t just for bloggers. I took the course without owning a blog and found the content to be incredibly informative, practical, and put me in position to go find clients! Step-by-step guidance on every topic you need is right at your fingerprints in basic terms that a non-blogger can easily understand and implement.
Many courses seem to leave important information out such as how to actually set your business up for taxes or protections, but Bobby covers this and so much more! I highly recommend “Make Money Marketing.”
So who is the blogger behind the Make Money Marketing Course?
Hi there! My name is Bobby Hoyt and I run Millennial Money Man, a personal finance blog that reaches over 1 million people a year. Previously I was a high school band director, but then quit my job to run my site after blogging for only 6 months!
Now I make nearly $200,000 per year online running Millennial Money Man and my local marketing business.
I've been seen and featured on CNBC, Business Insider, Yahoo Finance, Forbes, Reuters, Huffington Post, and many more.
When I'm not blogging or working online, my passions are boating and hanging out with my wife Coral and dog Strider!
The Make Money Marketing Course delivers easy, straight-forward step-by-step instructions for managing the online presence of local businesses. Bobby lays out exactly how he built up his marketing business and how to tackle your own local market. Within a day of enrolling in the course I’d gotten started on the first step to landing a client – a local coffee shop that my wife and I love. This course will easily pay for itself many times over and is perfect for bloggers.
