Before that Let me clarify what actually Pro-Blogger term was? It’s not Professional Blogger, Its Profitable Blogger.
Yes. But be clear about the term “Profit”. This term has not a standard value. Am I boring you //? Cool…
LET me come to the point. To achieve in Pro-Blogging, let’s assume blogging as a game more than as a business.
Every Level has 21-days (30days). You can take remaining days off. (Haha)
But the Level has to be continued. It’s your game buddy. There are several stages in the Pro-Blogging game.
Now coming back … Why I mentioned 21-days //? It’s a Psychological fact buddy. What-ever new thing we practice doing in our daily routine we become a master level of at least 7% in 21days.
Then if you do it consistently by Learning, Implementing & marketing consistently. You can achieve your financial goal in 70days possibly. I mean you can see a consistent income like 1000$/month if you are skilled with the things mentioned below & if you follow the 21-Day game plan (I will write a specific article about the 21day game plan on another article)

Absolutely yes. So Let’s understand the basic difference between sales & marketing.
Marketing is what transforming the emotions to the customers. Sales is just one-step ahead by insisting to feel them the emotion via our product/ service.
