how to turn your blog into a business with natalie lue

Many people dream of creating a online business that will allow them to ditch the 9-5 and work from home – or anywhere in the world.

Natalie Lue has done exactly that – turning a personal blog into profitable business with multiple income streams, including books, workshops and online training.

In this episode, she shares her tips and strategies for turning a blog into a business.

Here’s what’s covered in this episode:

  • Why Natalie believes there is no such thing as overnight sucess (and her own ten-year journey)
  • How she has published, promoted and sold over 100,000 books – without an agent or publisher
  • Natalie’s tips on building a community around your brand – including how to set boundaries to protect your time and energy
  • How Natalie uses free content to encourage people to opt-in to her email list
  • Natalie’s income streams, including ebooks, online training, live workshops, a membership community and products e.g. branded stationery
  • How Natalie has landed coverage in high-profile media outlets like the Sun, Red magazine, BBC and Sky – despite never having pitched a story to an editor
