About Cloud Living
Helping you start, grow & monetize profitable websites - and fund the lifestyle that you dream of
Hey, I’m Tung Tran, the founder of Cloud Living.
And if you have ANY of the following questions running through your brain:
- "Can I actually earn a full time living from a website...or is it just a ‘fad’?”
- "Keyword research is a pain (and I've never done this before) - how can I easily find profitable & easy-to-rank keywords?"
- “I suck at writing...plus how can I create content for a niche that I know nothing about?”
- “How can I drive traffic to my website...when I don’t have the slightest clue about how any of this ‘marketing’ stuff works?”
- “Does SEO still work in 2017? And how can I use it to achieve high rankings on Google?”
- “I’m scared I won’t have enough time to build an ‘online business’ - can I work on this part-time while still working a regular job?”
- “I’m sick and tired of my 9-5 job. How can I make a full time living off my websites - and is it even possible?”...
… You’re in the RIGHT place!
For the past 5 years, I’ve built and grown dozens of profitable websites from scratch.
My success story has been featured on credible industry-leading sites like Flippa, Empire Flippers, Niche Pursuits, and more.
I was also honoured to be featured as one of the 8 Successful Online Entrepreneurs You Should Be Following by Entrepreneur.com
But that’s not all...
I’ve also helped thousands of CloudLiving readers achieve incredible success - allowing them to escape the 9-5 rat race and finally live the life they always dreamed about.
And now I want to help you do the same.
How can I be so confident?
Simply because after years of trial and error, I've learned a lot about what works and what doesn't when it comes to building and growing a successful website.
Now I want to share with you everything I know through this blog - to hopefully help you achieve the same kind of success that allows me and my students to lead a life full of freedom and happiness.
If that’s what you want, then...
Here’s How Cloud Living Helps You
Be More Successful Online
I started Cloud Living in February 2013 mainly as a place to document my entrepreneurial journey and share my lessons learned while building different online business ventures.
Since then, the tiny little blog I started has grown into a thriving online community of hundreds of thousands of content creators and web publishers from all over the world.
It is now one of the most trusted places where you can learn practical, field-tested strategies and tactics from industry experts and fellow community members to help you earn a full-time living from your websites.
At Cloud Living, our mission is to help people earn a full-time living from the internet by teaching them how to start, grow and monetize profitable websites.
We do this by providing straightforward, step-by-step training, articles, case studies and tools to simplify the technical demands of building an online business. Together these minimize the barriers to entry, and put a profitable website within the reach of anyone, regardless of skill or experience.
But we don’’t stop there. Our content also includes valuable growth lessons to help you scale your site to earn even more and potentially become a 6 or even 7 figure business 3 to 5 years down the road.
Here's Why We're Different...
#1 - We're Practitioners, Not Researchers
Unlike loads of mediocre online marketing blogs out there, you won’t find any boring and theoretical business advice here.
What sets us different from the crowd is…
... We actually DO THIS STUFF!! (And we’re pretty dang good at it.)
In fact, in the last 12 months the Cloud Living team has:
- Served over 3,200,000 unique visitors across our web properties
- Generated SIX figures in profits from affiliate marketing and selling our own products
- Tried and tested dozen of new SEO and promotion strategies
- Expanded our team from just 1 to 5 full time members
- Hired and worked with dozens of part-time contractors and freelancers…
... all through our own, internal projects in different niche markets.
And along the way we have perfected a large number of strategies and tactics. More importantly, like any good scientist, we DOCUMENT each strategy in step-by-step process so our best ideas could be repeated and rolled out across all our different businesses.
Best of all, we make these step-by-step processes and well kept secrets available to members of our Cloud Living Academy, so if you’re looking for the ULTIMATE SHORTCUT to online success…sign up below.
#2 - We Pride Ourselves On Being 100% Transparent
At Cloud Living, we pull back the curtains and share the exacts lessons we learn while starting and growing our online businesses.
You get the good and the bad. We share both our successes and our failures too.
The truth is:
- Every business has ups and downs. No one is crushing it all the time.
- Far too often, people share only the highlights of their business via social media or blog posts, painting an inaccurate picture of entrepreneurship.
But we don’t do that. We’re the real deal.
That’s why we expose it all -- from the extreme highs to the darkest of lows.
We do this so you’re mentally prepared for the entrepreneurial roller coaster. You deserve to know the truth. Entrepreneurship isn’t easy. Most of the time we’re working relentlessly with no promise of ever receiving any gains.
On the other hand, entrepreneurship also brings joys and rewards the average person will never come to enjoy.
In short, if you can push through the pains of the entrepreneurial grind -- the rewards are well worth the struggle.
#3 - We Strive To Be Better Everyday
We don’t know it all. Far from it.
In fact, even though we’ve done a lot and achieved more than most online entrepreneurs, we don’t consider ourselves experts.
Instead, we’re constantly focused on becoming the strongest version of ourselves. Constant and continuous learning is one of our strongest priorities for becoming all that we can be.
Here’s the proof:
Every single year, we tally up our expenses and discover that we have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on the best courses, tools, networking events and coaching sessions in order to further our knowledge and expand our skillsets.
The end result? We’re able to use our learnings to make at least 10x more than the ‘price’ we paid.
That’s why we regularly consult with industry experts -- people who have built very lucrative 7 or 8 figure online businesses and have much more experience than we do.
The best part?
We share exactly what we’re taught so you can get in on the fun too, and become a true entrepreneurial success story
What Our Readers and Customers are Saying...
What I love most about Cloud Living is that Tung always backs up theory with actual case studies. Regardless of where I am at with my online business I always learn from Tung’s posts.
I found Cloud Living few months back and that really fueled my online journey. Now I have few niche sites up and running, which were created by exactly following Tung’s method and I am making around $900 a month now. His unique and up-to-date content keep luring me to his blog, again and again and again. Complete Awesomeness!”
I stumbled on your blog yesterday, you write really quality articles especially for beginners and I didn’t stop until I was finished reading all posts. I wouldn’t call myself a beginner (been reading for long time) but your blog push me that inch to actually start doing. Thank you for that!
