Full-Time Blog was created to help people make a full-time living by building content websites aka "blogging".
Fulltimeblog.com is a run by Brock McGoff and Shane Dutka, two successful bloggers making passive income of 5-figures per months from their portfolio of websites.
Both Brock and Shane believe blogging is simply the BEST business model out there allowing people to build passive income machines that can be sold for 5-figure and 6-figure exits!
They've joined forces to help you build your blog and escape the 9-5 to achieve financial freedom.
Here's a little bit about each of them.
Hey Shane here to tell you a little bit about my story... and why I think building a blog is one of the best business models around right now...
So, I started my career out as an accountant, miserable, going thought he 9 - 5 slog putting in those "face time" hours by being in the office but not actually doing anything... you know what I mean.
I finally get fed up around 2015 and started to do something about it by building websites on the side eventually quitting after they started earning more than my day job.
Fast forward to 2019, one of my websites now makes a passive income of $50,000 - $60,000 per month... Below is a screenshot from Amazon Associates dashboard, which is a popular program website owners enroll in to make money from visitors coming to their site.
Here are some of those earnings being deposited month after month straight into my bank account. It's exciting when Amazon is paying YOU money rather than the usual shopping sprees most of us go on when browsing Amazon.
Below is that $14.5k earned in March 2019 being deposited on May 29th, 2019. The deposit happened 2 months later because Amazon has a 60 day waiting period before depositing your earnings.
In addition to making money as an affiliate, where you upsell and promote other people's products, I also have ads on my sites (as most websites tend to do), which helps me make even MORE money passively. Here's a screenshot from the program I'm enrolled in with Media Vine.
Even one of my other websites, which is more of an e-commerce website that I consider a "failure" still makes about $1,500 each month... passively.
Below is a screenshot from Stripe, which is a popular payment processor used on a lot of websites around the internet. I use stripe to collect payments for this website.
Right now I have 6 websites in my portfolio, right now. As a member of our training program you get exclusive access to all of them and the strategies I'm using today to build them up and them sell them later as assets.
I really mean it when I say that building a blog is one of, if not the best business model out there for people who are looking to start a side hustle while working full time.
Hey, Brock here to tell you a little bit about me...
My name is Brock McGoff, and I’m a men’s fashion blogger. This still sounds weird to me -- I never used to care about my appearance until I got a promotion at work (first job out of college) and had to step up my game.
As a shorter guy, I couldn’t find clothes that fit, so I started blogging about fashion for short men, teaching others what I was learning as I improved my appearance.
The best part is it’s mostly passive income from display ads and affiliate marketing, although I can very easily secure 4 and 5 figure sponsorship deals with brands. If I need more money in a given money, I’ll do a couple of these brand deals.
I’ve been featured in publications like Huff Post, Men’s Health and Forbes, and I’ve shared my entrepreneurial journey on podcasts like Side Hustle Nation and The Distilled Man.
I run The Modest Man part time now, and I love helping other people who want to escape the rat race develop their own websites.
Like Shane above, I have very similar revenue streams. Although not as focused as driving revenue through Amazon, I promote other offers through affiliate programs like rewardStyle that make sense for a website in the men's lifestyle and fashion niche like The Modest Man.
Below you can see the breakdown between products, sponsorships (another method of earnings), ads, and affiliate earnings. In 2018, you'll notice I migrated more toward a "passive" model doing less sponsorships (yellow bar) and relying more on ad revenue (red bar).
The Modest Man reaches millions of people each month and generates six figures profit for me each year from the blog and from my dedicated YouTube channel (screenshots below).
And here are some of the earnings...
Moving toward passive income was 100% intentional and what Shane and I teach in our training.
Also, my partnership with Peter Manning NYC takes some of the financial burden off of TMM to keep the lights on, so don't have to do sponsorships. It's a great feeling!
