Being a successful blogger doesn’t happen overnight. There are a lot of things you need to do and learn before gaining a large audience and making thousands of dollars per month.
Our very own Bobby Hoyt is on his fifth year in the blogging industry. He definitely comes a long way from when he started, and everything isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. There were mistakes made, but what matters is that he learned from them.
On our 85th episode, we decided to impart some nuggets of wisdom about the things we, especially Bobby, have learned in the blogging world. If you want to know more about what Bobby wishes he had known before he started blogging then hit that play button!
“This all takes a long time. My thinking on how all this works as far as a blog, how you bring traffic and what you do with that traffic and kind of like the journey. I guess that’s where I’m at now with this, I’m thinking more about what is the journey of the Millennial Money Man reader that comes in through a Facebook Ad and gets into the private group in Facebook or that comes in through search query… I guess I just care a lot more about what do user goes through now instead of just going, “here’s the information, here’s my personality,” and I hope the user likes it. It’s more of like how can I make this a good experience for them. Eventually, raise more sales and more revenue over time. But it all takes a freaking long time to figure all this stuff out.” – Bobby Hoyt
