Bloggers: I Won’t Read Your Ad-Filled Blog Posts

Before we go too far please note that I write this with the highest respect for the work and art that goes into writing. This post is meant to present an opinion from the view of a reader, a blogger and a marketer.

I totally get it that you have to earn a living for your work.

Please allow me to present another, very viable option, from my own experiences and observations.

Let’s get to it: I Can’t Stand Reading Blogs with Ads

There I said it.

I’m reading your great post and scrolling down and noticing myself skipping over the ads without even looking but then scrolling back up to make sure I didn’t skip over something that is part of the content. OR I’m reading and I acknowledge the ad and get confused… is it part of the content? No? Ok… keep reading. OR I see the ad, get annoyed because it’s the tenth one and I’m only partway down the post and I leave, even though I really wanted to read your post.

Recently I’ve been trying hard to quit social media. So instead I have been going to Pinterest to search on various topics of interest to me to read blog posts on those topics – things I want to learn, do, have, etc.

This is where I’m finding almost ALL blogs are filled with ads.

It just makes your post unreadable to me.

I’m a blogger, too.

Now I’m no professional blogger but I did write my first post in 2005. I get how personal they are to you when you put your heart and soul into it.

Did Someone Tell You This is The Only Way?

It’s not.

I can 100% tell you it’s not.

At the beginning of last year (2021) I purchased a blog that was once one of the top blogs in the industry it speaks for. It still gets a decent amount of traffic and has tens of thousands of followers on social media.

When I bought this blog I had a choice – become a pro-blogger (which I had no real idea how to do) OR continue on in my skills as an email marketer.

I choose Email Marketer.

This is the option I’m proposing to you.

You can keep your blog posts CLEAN and CLEAR of ads and drive your traffic to an email list.

You probably have build a list already. I’m just saying you could build it bigger, focus on it AND send them emails – a lot of emails.

The brand I bought was used to not that many emails. They weren’t used to being sold via email, either. I wasn’t worried. I jumped right in, started sending emails with HIGH value and put in offers that were highly relevant, didn’t break up my content and were really just more ways to HELP my audience with the reason they were there – not distract them and interrupt them with ads that were of no relevance to what they were reading my emails for.

I had to say it.

I wish you to know the power of email marketing.

Business Model: How to Sell a Workshop a Month

Hey… I just meant to record a short video showing you how I use Coach Glue content but I ended up recording a pretty thorough explanation of how I make money selling workshops & downloads. 

How to Sell a Workshop a Month & Build a Recurring Income Business:

It’s only 22 minutes long but I think it’s so useful you’ll want to watch it twice. Maybe put it on double-time the first time so it takes 11 mins, then watch again and take notes on regular speed for a total of 33mins. 

I think that 33 mins could give you a business model you can take and create lifestyle freedom with, a recurring income base, a live you love, even! 

If you happen to grab it and go for it I’d LOVE to hear how it goes. Please do check in. 

Nothing to sell here, not really.

I do mention how I use Coach glue.
I tell you the business model in full detail.
I also share how my Brand Takeovers and Brand Builds work.

I know this because my members tell me this as a direct result of their membership (You can scroll down to the bottom of this page to read their own words).

With Commitment you CAN Build Freedom, Crack the Overwhelm & Claim the Laptop Lifestyle

With commitment, you’ll get there and I’m determined to help you do so.
In my efforts to woo you into what some say IS the best business group online, here are my 13 best reasons to join the Laptop Lifestyle YOUniversity:

  1. Training Library, Fast-Action Plans and Challenges to give you big wins and small wins and get your business in motion.The training library contains programs I sell from $27 – $97 or more each that are included in your membership. 

  2. Bonus Gifts for Members from Time to Time! It’s important to me to reward my members for taking action in the membership and from time to time I’ll just randomly award a gift here and there to community members I see taking the time to contribute and participate in the community.

  3. Massive 50% discount on all other products I create and coaching programs. Honestly I include MOST of what else I create but some things are outside the LL YOU, like my signature program MEconomy which currently is regularly priced at $397 and will be going up to $597 before the end of the year. Annual members will get a 50% discount on that program! 

  4. A Leader (Me, Angela Wills) who REALLY CARES about your success. >>> It is so important to me and it makes me cry happy tears when my peeps tell me I truly helped them.

  5. You Won’t Be Alone. >>> We know for a fact that working from home is isolating. It can get into some seriously concerning issues like depression and SAD (seasonal affective disorder), because the nature of our work is that we don’t leave the house. Connecting with others is essential and in this group, you won’t be alone.

  6. Accountability. >>> You want us to hold you responsible for something? You need to get work done? Come post it in the group and be accountable to get it completed.

  7. Get Answers to Questions as they Come Up. >>> We have members in many ranges of businesses from Writers to Yoga Instructors to Parenting Experts to Virtual Assistants and more. Most of us build some sort of online offerings from written reports to group coaching courses to services and more. With the variety and a focus on a freedom business using online marketing methods, you’re very likely to get help from a few of close to 200 members in the club!

  8. Friends! >>> Some of the BEST, best, best friends I’ve ever made have been through an online membership group just like the one I run and it’s a large part of the reason I run it. Join us and make really awesome friends, because we have awesome members.

  9. Member’s Only Perks & Freebies >>> I’m working with partners to offer member’s only perks and freebies. 

  10. Member Spotlights to highlight the awesome things our members are doing.

  11. A Member Special Offers permanent section where you can advertise your business via a special offer you make just for us. This is a great way to make your money back from being a member. We LIKE to buy from each other! 

  12. Regular Weekly Strategy & Business Meetings so we can talk what is happening in our businesses and the actions we need to take to grow. These start up again in September and run all year long (with breaks from time to time). 

  13. AND THE BIG ONE – We do a member collaboration every three months. Our September collaboration is a bundle sale where all annual members (or 60 day alumni) are invited to participate. What you do is offer a real, true-value PRODUCT as part of the sale. We sell the bundle for $27 and there usually about 40+ products included. This create HUGE VALUE for our community while allowing you to potentially add dozens or hundreds of new people to your email list. We have had members regularly add over 100 people to their list. PLUS you can promote the sale ($27) and earn 75% of the sale as an affiliate. So you could end up end up with a finished product, a built list AND money… by working with our community. 

I am a VERY PROUD Membership Mama!

I am so, so proud of my club! I’m proud of my members! Heck, I’m proud of me. I had the vision of this club in 2015. I worked at it until it hit just the right sweet spot and now I’m hitting the momentum with it where we’ve got awesome content, awesome meetings and awesome members. LOVE IT.

It is perfect? Are WE perfect? HECK NO! We’re regular ol’ Joe’s (as in Joanne’s as we’re mostly women, though men ARE welcome, too!)… We’re real people. We’re working on our ACTIVE, PASSIVE & RECURRING income to build a true laptop lifestyle with complete business lifestyle freedom.
