Are you struggling to get traction with your blog?

Is your niche too competitive? Are you starting too late?

If so, you’re going to come away from this episode with loads of actionable tips to put those questions to the side.

“I have learned, it is never literally too late to ever start anything,” today’s guest Jennifer Marx from JenniferMaker.com told me.

Jennifer has taken her DIY/crafting site from a part-time hobby blog earning $33/mo to bringing in more than 6-figures every month in just a few years.

She knows a thing or two about entering a competitive niche, finding, and cultivating an audience.

First, she mastered Pinterest, then Facebook, and just over a year ago she entered YouTube and already has an audience of more than 225k subscribers!

Dominating a source of traffic and growing an audience is something Jennifer excels at, and in the blogging world, there’s huge profit in doing so.

Tune in to hear how Jennifer found her initial traction in a competitive niche, what’s driving traffic for her today, how her site makes money, and how she’s built an email list that’s almost the population of Cleveland!

  2. I dropped by to say that I’ve saved and listened to this episode at least three times in the past two months. It’s been unbelievably helpful as I’ve been working to launch a blog and utilize Pinterest effectively. Jennifer does such a great job of distilling her journey and her strategy into easily understood action steps.

    This episode has so much valuable information in it that I’m sure I’ll keep on repeating it. Thanks Nick and Jennifer for putting it together. It really has helped me so much.
