Halden Zimmermann’s Guide to High Impact Blogs for Life Changing Income

I recently read the Guide to High Impact Blogs for Life Changing Income by Halden Zimmermann. This is a very fast read at around 40 pages. I enjoy the honesty of what it takes to create a successful blog. As a blog coach myself, I find all too many people trying to turn their diaries into high profit machines. Zimmermann does a great job of breaking down a step by step blueprint to get started. 4 stars – not five – because I feel there is so much that it lacks. This is not comprehensive, but a starting place with out an actionable second step. For the price and the time commitment, there is a lot of information worth having.

In his newest book release, Halden Zimmerman, a successful blogger with a wealth of professional experience in mechanical engineering and corporate leadership, discusses the methods and techniques aspiring bloggers can apply as they seek to achieve long-term financial security through their blogging career. With the release of “Halden Zimmermann’s Guide to High-Impact Blogs for Life-Changing Income,” beginner and veteran bloggers alike are able to benefit from the unique and data-driven approach developed by Mr. Zimmerman with the explicit goal of creating a stable source of life-changing income.

Unlike other blogging guides and programs, Mr. Zimmerman’s “high-impact” approach is based on the concept that increased income cannot be truly life changing if the income increase comes with greater responsibilities or increased demands on time. The goal of high-impact blogging is to generate a significant source of income that only requires an initial investment of time during the planning and implementation stages.

Once the blog debuts and begins to earn income, an effective high-impact blog will consistently generate revenue without demanding a continued time commitment. Through practical advice and personal insight gleaned from his first-hand experience as a blogger, Mr. Zimmerman espouses a step-by-step approach that begins with the pre-planning stages and concludes with the explanation of several strategies for expansion to platforms beyond blogging. Detailed explanations of commonly overlooked technical aspects abound, and Mr. Zimmerman outlines a strategy that clearly values the establishment of a strong foundation based on a thorough planning process.

The attention to detail recommended by Mr. Zimmerman throughout the planning stages is critical for bloggers seeking to create a passive source of income through their blogging platform. Created with beginners in mind, Mr. Zimmerman’s book does not overlook the needs of veteran bloggers in the process. The information provided in “Halden Zimmermann’s Guide to High-Impact Blogs for Life-Changing Income” is presented in a simple and straightforward manner so blogging neophytes will have little trouble understanding and implementing the recommended strategies, but the concepts are such that they can benefit even the most seasoned blogging professional.

Brandon Colker’s How to Make Big Bucks from Big Blogs

I love a good non-fiction book, no seriously, they are my favorite. I have too little time for random stories with fictional characters. Reading Brandon Colker‘s How to Make Big Bucks from Big Blogs was right up my alley as I prep the launch of Brand Dot Blog.

“Brandon Colker is a blogging expert who specializes in educating aspiring bloggers how to go about generating passive income online. With years of experience as a blogger but little to show for it in terms of income, Mr. Colker began developing the passive income program that has now helped countless others achieve a sense of financial security through blogging. Mr. Colker’s initial goal was to create a website that delivered valuable information, products and services to generate income but did not require constant oversight. After accomplishing his goal with several different websites, Mr. Colker recognized that he had created the ideal blueprint for passive income blogging.

Mr. Colker continues to run several different blogs, including one featuring his unique strategies for generating passive income through blogging. The passive income blog is his most popular site, as Mr. Colker offers sound advice along with actionable strategies for achieving financial independence through blogging. The goal, according to Mr. Colker, is to do the overwhelming majority of the work up front so that it can become a source of revenue that is without limit.

This is the strategy that has led to Mr. Colker’s impressive success through blogging, providing him with time to use however he sees fit. Mr. Colker often uses that time to work on creating new passive income blogs and to update his current blogs, but he also makes sure to get the most out of the free time he has created through a variety of recreational pursuits that serve as a constant reminder why passive income is such a wonderful thing.”

I received this book for my unbiased and honest review. As a reviewer, I tend to be very harsh on self published books as they typically do not put the time and effort into crafting them to the level and expertise I expect from a printed book. As a profitable full time blogger…I know what needs to be done to make money using a blog and what just flat out doesn’t work. I expected very little from this book and was amazed at the content and its delivery!

In this concise and to the point novella by Brandon Colker, he explains the many ways to make real, long term money utilizing the blogging platform. This is not the get rich quick and easy, rather the tried and true built up success. He covers very particular points, gives examples and points out potential pitfalls. If you want a daily diary that brings in millions passively, this is not for you (and neither is reality), but if you are looking to make income online and willing to put in the effort, this is a great primer and starting point to your journey through blogging.
