Start a blog
“You can’t find readers without them having something to read, and you can’t build a platform if you’re not standing on one already,” says Montgomery. “So even if you have zero readers, and you just have your best friend logging on, you’re going to blog.”
And, adds Montgomery, you shouldn’t worry about the already crowded blogosphere. There’s still ample opportunity for you to make your voice heard – and your bank account grow.
“When you’re asking, ‘What do [I] blog about?’ [or] ‘Do [I] add on something to an already saturated market?,’ the answer is yes, because when you talk like yourself, you are in a league of your own,” explains Montgomery. “I talk and I act on my blog like I would with a girlfriend on the phone. There are plenty of people that are teaching about self-confidence and motivation and how to make money with blogs, but the reason why I’m so successful with it is because I have my own authentic voice.”
