How To Start A Profitable Blog Right Here In SA

How To Start Your Own Money-Making Blog That Brings In A Consistent Monthly Income.....Even If You're Deathly Afraid Of Technology & Don't Know Anything About Online Business! 

It's Become Easier Than Ever To Generate a Full-Time Income By Blogging In Your Spare Time.

With all the amazing tools and technology available today, it's easier than ever to start and launch a money-making blog on a topic that you're passionate about than it has ever been, even if you live in South Africa!

The problem is that, even with all these amazing tools and resources that are available, it's difficult to know what to do or even where to start.

There's so much conflicting information abut blogging online that many people are just tempted to quit. And most of the information isn't aimed at South Africans, so a lot of it does not apply to us. 

But it doesn't have to be that way. Because there is a solution and I'm going to share it with you right here.  

But before I do that, I first want to share with you why I believe  NOW is the perfect time for South Africans like you and me to start blogging. 

10 Reasons Why It's The Perfect Time For South Africans To Jump On The Blogging Bandwagon.

Here are 10 Compelling Reasons To Start Blogging Right Now. 

Reason #1: You Can Turn Your Knowledge or Passion Into Income. 

You can take practically any topic that you're knowledgeable or passionate about and turn it into a steady income stream. 

Whether it's a sport like golf or fishing, a hobby like scrap-booking or a passion for a particular topic like personal development or fitness. Even "weird" topics like beekeeping or raising pet goats can all be turned into profitable blogs. 

 

Reason # 2: To Share Your Knowledge & Expertise With Others. 

Blogging gives you a platform to share your knowledge and expertise on a topic with the world. 

Before the advent of the Internet, you had to publish a book in order to share your knowledge with the world. That was time consuming, difficult and frankly, out of the reach of most people. 

Now, you can publish your blog and be sharing your knowledge with nothing more than a few clicks of your mouse. 

And because of the global nature of the Internet, you can not only influence people in South Africa, but around the world as well. 

 

Reason # 3: You Will Be Regarded As An Expert On Your Topic. 

If you start a blog on a particular topic and write great content, people will naturally come to see you as a subject-matter expert. 

Your blog can position you as a global expert on whatever topic you choose. 

 

Reason # 4: You Can Make Money.

A lot of money, in fact. Depending on your topic and the way you choose to monetize your blog, it's not all that uncommon to make a six-figure income from your blog.

 

Reason # 5: You Can Earn In USD Whilst Living In Sunny SA.

And, as a South African, you have the added advantage of being able to earn in USD as well, if you wish. 

This is super exciting especially when you consider the rand-dollar exchange rate.

And it means you don't need to earn a lot in dollars for it to add up to a substantial amount of money when converted. 

 

Reason # 6: You'll Be Building A Location Independent Business. 

Isn't it awesome to know that you can run your business from anywhere in the world. All you need is a laptop and an Internet connection? 

So whether you decide to immigrate to another country or decide to move to another province, you don't have to worry about what you're going to do to make a living when you get there. 

Not only that, you can work and earn an income whilst you're traveling the world, visiting exotic locations and living the life you truly want to. 

How cool is that? 

 

Reason # 7: You'll Inspire Others & Make A Positive Difference In People's Lives.

It's such a rush to get comments from people and know that you've made a positive difference in their lives. This is a sense of satisfaction that goes beyond money and gives meaning and purpose to your life and your work. 

 

Reason # 8: Blogging Improves Your Writing & Communication Skills. 

And that's always a good thing, especially in this age of digital communication. 

 

Reason # 9: It's Fun.

Especially when you blog about a topic that you're passionate about and that you enjoy. 

 

Reason # 10: It's never been easier to start a blog! 

With the tools and technology available today, it's never been easier to start a blog. In fact, you can have a fully functional, beautiful looking blog in less than 30 minutes......once you know how. 

 

The Problem Is Most Blogging Advice Is Outdated Or Not Applicable To South Africa

Look, I know there's a ton of free information out there on how to start a blog. 

Just Google "How to start a blog" and you will have enough information to keep you busy for days, if not weeks. 

The problem with most of the courses out there, free or paid, is that the advice is tailored to the International market and not to South Africa. 

So a lot of it, especially the traffic generation methods and the ways to earn money from your blog don't work as well locally, simply because we do not all have all the tools and resources that are available in these other countries. 

Does this mean that it's not possible to start a profitable blog in South Africa? 

Not at all. What you need is help and guidance from a fellow South African who has been making money blogging and can show you the ropes. 

That's where I come in. 

 

Who Am I & Why You Should Listen To Me

 

My name is Sa'Diyya Patel and I'm a lifestyle entrepreneur, blogger and Online Marketing Expert. 

But more importantly than that, I've been earning an income online for over a decade now, all from sunny South Africa. 

I started my online journey with a website/blog on ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). This is something both my husband and son have, so I learned a lot about how to manage it through diet and various other lifestyle interventions.

I sold that website two years later, but building that website was one of the best things I have ever done because it enabled me to find my true passion which is Internet Marketing. I live, eat and breathe the subject. Give me a choice between a new piece of jewelry or a new item of clothing and a new Internet Marketing course and I'm taking the course, hands down, no questions asked.

I then decided to create a website/blog to share what I had learned and to help other moms to build successful online businesses. That website is at www.MompreneurBusinessSchool.com 

After doing this for a while, I noticed a huge void in the South Africa Market. No one was teaching South Africans how to make an income online. That's when I decided to step in and fill the void and www.DitchThe9To5.com was born.

I'm also the founder of LifeCoachTrainingAcademy.co.za  - an online life coach training and certification program for South Africans as well as being a certified life coach and life coach trainer. 

People are always surprised that I'm able to earn an income online, from the comfort of my own home and I want to teach you how to do the same. 

 

My Other Qualifications

These are some of the qualifications I have earned over time.

But my greatest qualification is that I am able to earn a consistent monthly income from my online business and I can show you how to do the same with your blog. 

Imagine How Different Your Life Would Be If The Same Were True For You

Imagine getting up, strolling down to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee and then switching on your computer only to discover that you've made money while you were sleeping. 

Imagine getting up in the morning eager and excited to start you day, instead of feeling the sense of dread you feel right now.

Imagine getting paid to share your gifts and talents with the world. 

Imagine having enough money to go on exotic vacations or to buy a better home or a nicer car.

Or even enough for the little luxuries in life like a pedicure, a new handbag or for that perfect vase for your entrance hall that you've been eyeing for some time. 

  • No more getting up early every morning to go to a job that you hate.
  • No more worrying about how to pay the bills. 
  • No more being at the mercy of an annoying boss that you can't tolerate. 
  • No more doing work you find dull and meaningless. 

Because now you, yes you, can earn an income online, from the comfort of your own home, by starting your very own blog on practically any topic you choose. 

Let me show you how...

 

Introducing The Blogging Blueprint Program

The Only Blogging Program Created For South African Bloggers!

 Blogging Blueprint is a multimedia program where I lay out, step-by-step how to start and run a profitable blog right here from South Africa.

There are 8 modules, broken down into bite-sized lessons that you can easily complete in under 30 minutes. One Module is released each week (except for Module One and Two which you will have access to immediately upon enrollment).

All lessons are accessible on your computer, smart phone or tablet. The entire course is focused on how to start and run a profitable blog, with detailed step-by-step instructions. At the end of each lesson, there's an assignment to complete, so that you not only learn, you take action and get real results.

Unlike other blogging courses, where you're left to figure things out for yourself or where you have to pay thousands of dollars to get feedback from the instructor, you get feedback from me every step of the way. 

Here's a detailed breakdown of what's included in each module of this comprehensive training program:

Module 1

Module 1 is an Introductory Module where you will learn how to get the most out of the course as well as how to adopt the mindset of a successful blogger. Mindset is where it all starts and this is what this module focuses on.

Module 2

Module Two is all about choosing your topic and getting to know your audience. You will learn my proven formula for choosing a topic that you're both interested in and one that has money making potential as well.

Module 3

In Module Three, I'll walk you through setting up your blog step-by-step. By the time you complete this Module, you'll have your blog live on the Internet.

Module 4

Module Four is all about creating compelling content that keeps readers coming back for more. The content is going to be the cornerstone of your blogging empire, so it's vitally important that you do it right. You'll learn what pillar content is, why it's so important, the different types of pillar content you can create and detailed tutorials on exactly how to write these key pieces.

You'll also learn how to use other people's content to build your brand.

Module 5

Module 5 is all about how to make money from your blog. We will be exploring the pros and cons of several different monetization methods including Adsense, promoting affiliate products, creating your own products, accepting advertisers, sponsored posts and more.....so that you can choose the methods best suited to you, your topic and your income goals....all methods that work right here in SA. 

Module 6

Module Six focuses on creating a high converting blog. The key to building a long-term sustainable blogging business is to build your email list. This lesson shows you how to turn your readers into subscribers and subscribers into customers.

Module 7

Module Seven is all about establishing your credibility as an authority blogger. You'll learn how to be seen as the go-to expert in your niche.

Module 8

Now that all the systems are in place, it's time to turn on the traffic. Module Eight will teach you the latest traffic generation strategies that will send a flood of traffic to your site.....but not just any traffic.....but readers that are truly interested in your topic and very likely to purchase whatever it is you're selling.

Sounds Absolutely Amazing! But How Much Is It Going To Cost?

So by now, you're probably wondering how much the program costs right?

A program of this size and scope costs around $2,000 in the International Market. That amount to around R27,000 with the current exchange rate. But you're not going to pay anywhere near that. 

I currently have a blogging program  that sells to the International market for $497 which is around R6900 with the current exchange rate. 

I've priced the Blogging Blueprint Program at a ridiculously affordable R2,999! 

Not only that I've included payment terms as well which means you can get started for just R599 TODAY!

FAQ

Q: This course looks like an ideal fit. But how do I know if it's really right for me? 

A: Blogging Blueprint is for you if….

You are a South African who wants to start their own blog and actually make money from it. 

You have basic computer skills. If you’re able to type an email, I can teach you the rest.

You’re able to follow simple instructions and you’re willing to devote 30 minutes a day for the next eight weeks.


Q: I'm not technically inclined. I barely understand what a blog is or how it's different from a website. Can I still do this? 

Yes. Of course you can.

Anyone can do this, as long as they are able to follow simple step-by-step instructions.

If blogging is totally new to you, then allow me to clarify some key points for you…

Blogs are actually “websites,” but unlike regular websites they’re easier to set up and maintain.

Most blogs are built on the WordPress platform. WordPress has a very easy-to-use, beginner friendly interface.

It’s actually very easy to set up a blog. I  can set up a blog in less than 10 minutes. That’s because I’ve done it many times before.

A total newbie can set up a blog in less than 30 minutes from start to finish using the illustrated paint-by-numbers tutorials that show you exactly what to do.

Module 1 is entirely dedicated to setting your blog up. There’s a downloadable, illustrated step-by-step tutorial that you can print out and leave on your desk as you follow the steps.

And, if you still can’t manage to do it, I’ll show you to get someone to install your blog for less than $5.


Q: Is this a get-rich-quick scheme?

A:  No.  Blogging Blueprint is a 100% ethical, legal, proven system to make money online.

Will you be a millionaire by the time you complete this program? No, probably not.

I am making no such claims. In fact, it’s the exact opposite.

Actually, I’d like to be the first one to tell you that you will not get rich overnight by taking this course.

What it can do, provided you follow the system and take consistent action, is create a reliable source of income that can grow into a very profitable business (generating R5,000 – R60,000+ per month) over time.

Whilst blogging isn’t going to make you rich overnight, you can start generating an income within a few short weeks. And I will show you how to turn that tiny stream of income into something more significant over time.

And I promise you that once you experience the amazing feeling of earning money from blogging, you will never look back.

And I can guarantee that you’ll wake up each morning eager to work on your blog so that you can increase your earnings and expand your reach and your influence.


Q: I'm not a good writer. Can I still start a blog? 

A: Yes. But if you absolutely hate writing, then blogging is probably not the best choice for you.

At the same time, you don’t have to be Hemmingway in order to start a successful blog. Take a look at the top-ranking blogs on practically any given topic (except perhaps Nuclear Physics) and you’ll see that they’re written in a simple, conversational tone.

Forget all about what your English teacher taught you about complex rules and just write like you speak.

Rest assured, I have an entire module dedicated to helping you to hone and develop this skill.

If you’re really worried about your writing, then a great book is The Elements Of Style by Strunk & White can help.

And finally, don’t just restrict yourself to the written word. You can create other forms of content such as video, podcasts, infographics etc.


Q: Do you make money by teaching other people to make money? 

A:  When I started out online in 2008 I had a website on ADHD. I ran a website/blog for two years before I sold it. That website generated a consistent income of $3,000 – $4,500 per month.

But in running that business, I discovered my true passion, Internet Marketing.

That led me to create a website to help Moms to start their own online businesses. That website is at www.MompreneurBusinessSchool.com

I also have my own Life Coach Certification Program for Muslims at www.LifeCoachTrainingAcademy.co.za

I’m not the only one making money from topics other than making money online. There are thousands of bloggers making money on topics such as parenting, natural health, cars, beauty, fashion, cooking and more.


Q: I already have a blog. Can I still benefit from your course?

A: Whilst I do start at the very beginning, the Blogging Blueprint Program has something to offer you if you have a blog as well.

The most important question you need to ask yourself is “Are you making a full-time income from blogging?”

If not, then try to figure out why.

  • Is it because you have no clear idea of what to do next?
  • Or is there something holding you back?
  • Are you doing the same things over and over again and have little or nothing to show for it?
    Then chances are that The Beginner Blogging Blueprint Program has the answers you’ve been looking for and can help you to finally piece together the income puzzle that has eluded you for so long.

Let me ask you some specific questions?

  • Is your blog hosted on your own domain or a free one such as blogger.com?
  • Are you earning a consistent income from your blog? 
  • Are you using Guest Posting to your advantage?
  • Do you know how to get high traffic websites to send you traffic?
  • Are you making money promoting affiliate products?
  • Do you know where to find affiliate products that are okay for South Africans?
  • Are you capturing names and emails and building your list?
  • Are you at a loss for what to write about?

 


If you’d like to know more about any of these more “advanced” topics that I’ve mentioned above, then the Blogging Blueprint Program is probably for you.

I can almost guarantee that there is something in the course – a golden nugget of information, a technique or strategy you didn’t know before – that can dramatically improve the results you’re currently getting from 20% up to 100%.

Just pause and take a moment to consider this…..

What if one technique you learn inside Blogging Blueprint Program increases your income by a mere 20%?

What if you learn several new techniques or strategies like this?

You could easily double or triple your income over the next few months.

The Blogging Blueprint Program is not just for the newbie. If you’re not making  a full-time income from your blog, then I can help you to change that.


Q: I'm afraid that I'll run out of ideas to blog about. Will your course help me?

A: If you’ve chosen a topic according to the guidelines I give you, then you won’t ever run out of topic ideas.

Running out of ideas comes from choosing a niche that’s too narrow or from a lack of knowledge about a topic.

I show you how to avoid these errors.

In addition, I share some strategies that will help you to always have a bank of fabulous ideas that you can draw from as well as dozens of blog post prompts.

And, contrary to the popular notion that you have to write daily, I will show you how to create a fabulously profitable blog with only 2-3 blog posts per month. In fact, doing it any other way is a recipe for failure & burnout. (Read the question on writing for more information on this topic)


Q: I already have a blog, but I'm not making any money from it. I'm beginning to feel that blogging doesn't work. Am I correct?

A: Blogging works very well when it’s done correctly. The reason most people struggle with it is because they’re spending their time on the wrong things.

Successful bloggers spend 20% of their time creating content and 80% of the time promoting that content.

Unsuccessful bloggers do the opposite. They spend 80% of the time creating content and then only 20% of the time promoting that content.

In fact, some don’t spend any time actively promoting their content. They have a “build it and they will come” mentality. Then they wonder why they’re failing. That’s a recipe for failure.

Derek Halpern, from the successful Social Triggers blog says “It’s not about creation, it’s about promotion.” And I couldn’t agree more with that.

In the Blogging Blueprint Program I will share the most effective strategies with you.

Creating a successful blog (one that earns you a full-time income) is not about creating an endless amount of content.

A common question I get when I share this 80/20 rule with readers is “Aren’t people going to get fed up of promoting my content?”

Let me put it this way. If you have a new blog and 300 people read your article don’t you think that there are at least another 5,000 (or 5,000,000) people that can benefit from reading your content? Especially if you’re writing valuable content like I will show you how to do.


Q: Blogging sounds like just the thing for me. But I have no idea what topic I'm going to blog about. Will your course be able to help me?

A: If this is the case, then Blogging Blueprint is just for you. We dive deep into choosing the perfect topic for you in Module One of the course.

To be able to make money from your blog you have to choose a topic that has two elements:

It is something that you’re interested in.
It has money-making potential.
In the Blogging Blueprint Program we will be going into depth about how to uncover topics you’re passionate about (even if you have no clue right now) and then how to test if that topic has any money-making potential.


Q: What's the time commitment needed to complete the course? Can I complete it at my own pace?

A: You need to set aside around 1-2 hours a week to work on the program and then apply what you've learned. 

The course is self-paced so you can work at a pace that feels right for you.


Q: Aside from the cost of the course, how much money do I need to get started?

A: You will need to set aside around R500-R750 to pay for some basic tools you will need. 

Where else can you start a business that has the potential to earn you thousands of dollars a month for less than R1,000 investment?

Wanna Be Like Firoza?

Firoza signed up for the pilot version of the blogging blueprint program and in a few short weeks, she had chosen a topic and was up and running with her very own blog, the GlutenFreeHalalFoodie, based on her own experiences with being gluten intolerant and her own healing journey. What I love about Firoza’s blog is that she stands out in the sea of food blogs because she has chosen her niche so well – not only gluten free, but halal and inspired by her multi-cultural ethnic background as well.

Firoza is soon set to release some courses on her blog and I can’t wait to see where she takes this.

What really marvels me is that she was able to achieve this in a very short time span of only a few weeks, all whilst having a job and taking care of her family.

For those of you who would like to be like Firoza and take it further and really accelerate your journey to blogging success, then the Blogging Blueprint Program is just for you.

Here's what Firoza had to say about the blogging blueprint program.

Here's What Some Of Our Beta Testers Had To Say

Before launching, we offered the course to a small, select group of students. Here's what they had to say.

"This is THE most complete blogging program I have ever been through. It takes you all the way from finding a profitable idea for your blog to actually making money from it. Highly recommended!"

Ruquayyah M Jeena

"After searching high and low for information applicable to South African bloggers, I finally stumbled across this program. I finally know what it takes to make money from blogging right here in SA. Thanks a million!"

Steven Chowke

"The level of feedback and support I have received inside of the Blogging Blueprint course has been incredible. Sadiyya is so approachable and is always there to clarify things and help me when I am stuck. As a complete newbie, this was incredibly helpful to me. "

Hina Saeed

How Blogging Blueprint Is Different From Everything Out There!
