How young Blogger Michael Dunlop Earn Millions by Blogging at the age of 20 - Part II

With an aim to become a successful entrepreneur, Michael Dunlop started his first profitable website at the age of 16. What marked him as one of the youngest and adventurous online entrepreneurs in his time are his unique tips on how to make online money in his own websites, motivating others to start earning money from blogging and write something about which they are fond of. It’s the competition that inspires him to stand up and fight it back.  

Initial start up

With an urgent need of money, Michael just wanted to have a CMS which finally got programmed and the blogging platform was built. But that time he was only 15 years old and was totally unaware of the concept of blogging. But luckily it went off well and he found it easier and less stressful to earn online money than actually selling a product.

Michael’s first website was WebDesignDey, where he did the whole tutorial scene and has progressed with step by step on how to proceed with several things rather than giving just a general idea. Delivering his content in a tutorial like method brought him good results. Later his site Retire At 21 came for which WebDesignDey was set aside but later he re-did it. With the advent of the thought of doing very mediocre work like others, Michael Dunlop decided to take interview of those people who were really doing well that time.

 Not only that would provide him with good advice but also make connections with these successful entrepreneurs which may help him in future. He thinks once you know people personally it becomes easier to sell your products. He used to send emails first and then request them to give an interview. But he thinks that the first email should be an impressive one and must make you feel personal.

His website Retire At 21 started to attract 1000 visitors a day which finally got over 50,000 visitors.

Turning point in his career of blogging

The launching of his most successful website called Income Diary was a turning point that changed his career a lot. With an idea that came before a week and spending two full days to install the blog, Michael Dunlop started his blog Income Diary. Once he launched the site he was looking for someone to interview for it. From the very beginning he was aiming to earn more from the site. He thought unless he could earn more he can’t afford on advertising. So without earning $1000 a month he aimed to make $10,000 a month and making it higher and higher.

Idea behind creating

When people started asking him about how to create a blog, how to earn online money etc., the idea of delivering these contents in the best way possible through e-course clicked his mind. Michael has always been very inventive and thus he started off with his new blog, where he used to find a problem, create the solution and finally build them. This principle of him, hit a huge success and he was quite appreciated by many.

Business strategies followed by Michael Dunlop

Michael thinks that to start with the work initially, it is important that at every step you have to be careful to write something different from others. If everyone has the same content then where lays your specialty? You have to supply different contents with a new style to stand out in the crowd.

Michael thinks that, one of the most important issues while starting a website with links to other sites is that people visiting your website should not go to other blogs instead of clicking your ads or affiliate links or signing up your newsletter. To stop this, he started playing Crazy Egg, software which tells where people are clicking and what is happening. He added a green stop sign which brought those visitors into his list until he provides something to them. This strategy brought a huge difference in his business.

He thinks people putting advertising on your websites must earn from your site as it promotes an affiliate offer. And it’s always better to go with the affiliate group.

A good content will surely make your site well-known and people will start sharing it on social networking sites. And once you get the traffic you have to monetize it and or affiliate marketing. If you are new blogger affiliate marketing will earn you money.
He thinks earning money from blogging is not as easy as people think. You have to really word hard to make it a success and also have to be passionate in what you are writing. Enjoying the hard work is the key to become a successful online entrepreneur.

Aspects of blogging
Michael always feels like doing things whatever and whenever he likes. So when he feels to work hard he works or else sometimes he takes a leave for about a week also. But obviously not working for a week may lower your income as he thinks posting every day brings loads of traffic.
Michael’s principles

Michael thinks that attending seminars and workshops could make you learn a lot. He himself used to attend one seminar each year. Hearing from different speakers could make you more knowledgeable than buying more products. Not only that, attending seminars and all could build your contacts to help your business grow larger.

Michael’s favorites

He likes to eat roasted chicken and orange juice is his favorite drink. Apart from staying on keyboard, Michael like sports because it keeps you fit and active as also helps in blood circulation of your body.
If he was not a blogger then today Michael would be doing some business or the other because he has always thought of doing something entrepreneurial. He might have started with a market store. But this young online entrepreneur is now a source of motivation to many housewives and students to earn extra cash while working from home.
