Rochelle Greayer is a landscape designer and gardening expert who grew her email list to over 15K and was named a Top 5 Garden Blog by Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.
And I’m happy to feature her.
No matter what type of skill you have, whether it’s something digital (like web design or online marketing) or something tangible (like landscape design, real estate, clothing), you have an opportunity to share what you know on a blog…
…and the opportunity to turn that blog into a real business.
Thus proving, no matter what type of skill you have, it’s possible to turn that skill into a popular blog – and that popular blog into a business.
Why You Don’t Need Connections To Build An Audience ( And Sell Stuff)
To kick this off, let’s make one thing clear: there are different ways you can make money through blogging. And as you’ll soon see, many of the most successful bloggers don’t resort to just one revenue stream.
Instead, they have MANY revenue streams.
That’s why I want you to watch this short video here where Rochelle shares how she actually makes money from her blog…
…and I want you to pay close attention to the fact that she started with almost no connections.
Towards the end of the video, Rochelle mentions that one of the best things that came out of blogging was how many people she has met because of blogging.
This is a great insight for many reasons: people often think you need connections for this to work, but in reality, building a successful blog (and audience) can help you make those connections.

When you have an audience, yes, you can sell them stuff…
…But you can also promote important things like crowd-funding campaigns, book launches, and more.
And that’s why I wanted Rochelle to talk about her crowd-funding campaign. She beat her goal by 42% (she raised $17,041 when she only wanted $12,000).
