If you have been blogging for any amount of time you have probably run across Jane Sheeba’s site Pro Blogging Success. If you haven’t you should go there to help you learn the ins and outs of blogging and being successful online! She was kind enough to send me an early release copy of her latest Special Report/e-Book on how to make money blogging. This is my review of Jane Sheeba’s “Can I Really Make Money Blogging?” – is it worth it? You’ll have to read on to find out!
Pro Blogging Success
As I stated before Jane Sheeba’s has been online for 7+ years now. She has dealt with the ups and downs of the internet and over that time has managed to come out on top. So when I was offered a chance to review her book I took it! Her current site Pro Blogging Success works with you (and me) on how to become successful with your own blog.
Can I Really Make Money Blogging?
Then I saw the title and groaned. Yet another “HOW TO MAKE MONEY BLOGGING” report! I was crestfallen at first. But then I hadn’t even opened it up yet! So I withheld my final judgement until I read the book and I spent the time poking through its pages with a fine toothed comb.
What I Liked About the Report
I thought the book had great overall structure. It is very clearly laid out and easy to read. At no point did I feel like it had lost focus or wasn’t working toward the next subject. Jane presents the information in a very human approach without being berating or “preachy” either.
This book is mainly aimed for someone who wants to start a blog or those new to blogging. But whether you are new or have been around for a bit (like me) you will still learn some great tips in this book. I just wish I could share them all with you! You’ll just have to purchase the book to find out! I do know that I will be implementing them here ASAP!
Relevant Material to Today’s Internet
What I really enjoyed the most? Is how it is relevant to today’s Internet and not the techniques that worked say 10 years ago when I first was building websites on the internet. And she doesn’t bullshit you or in any way promise you huge riches. She does lay out a very clear plan of action and how to go about it to get your own project off the ground and do it right from the start. Some of the topics that are covered that I think EVERY blogger should be doing:
- Build a Model that Converts – Creating a Business Plan for your new (or existing) Blog
- The Working Income Model – What works and what doesn’t for making money online.
- List Building – How to correctly build your email list.
She has a TON of great information and goes into some awesome detail. For me personally I really enjoyed the whole List Building as Jane goes into great detail how she has her Aweber setup – which I have yet to see anywhere else. This alone makes the book worth it!
I just wish I had this book a year ago. It would have saved me so much time!
Do you need more info? Still on the fence about this book? I would suggest going to the link below to read an excerpt article that is in the report. Its a great article and has a link to her new book in there.
No Overkill on the Affiliate Links
You know when you get an e-book or a report like this you will see affiliate links. Although this book is no different I did appreciate the fact that they weren’t EVERYWHERE or shoved down my throat. Nothing is worse than a pushy sales person.
What I Didn’t Like
The only thing I didn’t like was Jane’s use of Grammar and Sentence Structure. Don’t get me wrong now. Jane is able to clearly talk to you about the subject matter. But at some points it made me cringe inwardly the waysome phrases were used and how sentences were put together. Now this doesn’t take away from the book at all. This is a pet peeve of mine being an avid reader and I tend to be overly judgmental about these types of things.
I’m my own worst critic BTW. If you have read enough of my articles you will soon realize I’m no Shakespeare myself!
Would I Recommend It?
But – like any book - it is ultimately just a tool – it is up to you the reader on how well you work to implement it!
I highly suggest that you get this book! You can get it either by clicking on the picture to the right or the link below:
I can tell you personally that I enjoyed reading it and will be using it for my own site here. Thanks Jane again for lending me an early copy of the report!
