Can you really get paid to answer questions?

That’s exactly what Debbie Gartner from TheFlooringGirl.com does - and her answers are earning her $20,000 a month.

Debbie used to run a local hardwood flooring consultation business. She’d estimate jobs, make recommendations, and match homeowners with reliable installers.

In her spare time, she started her blog with the goal of showing up in some local search results to generate some more business.

“I wrote blog posts that were questions that my customers would have,” Debbie told me.

But as you might have guessed, the site soon started to reach an audience well outside her local area. A couple of years later Debbie got out of the brick and mortar flooring business and decided to monetize her blog.

She was already pulling in more than 100,000 visitors and by simply turning on ads she made $1,100 in her first month.

From there she continued to grow her traffic numbers, added affiliate posts, created her own products, and is now making more than $20,000 a month.

Tune in to hear how Debbie is driving traffic, how her site earns money, and how you may be able to replicate some of Debbie’s tactics in your own niche.

Note: If you don't have a blog of your own yet, my free video series will show you how to get up and running quickly and affordably.
