This concept can also be applied to services in all types of industries. For instance, if you offered electronic repair services as opposed to physical products, you could still use the same blogging concept to increase brand awareness and convert more clients.
You are man of kind. I do blogging since 7 years ago. I didn’t earn much like others. The reason behind i didn’t gave readers value. I pushed them to click my advertising. That’s silly. But, now, i understand that readers need something useful for their life. I called it human to human approach. Not human to machine, like the way i did. E Since months ago, i read your blog everyday. Just like a breakfast at Tiffany.
1. Get a squeeze page. 2. Drive traffic through ads 3.Get an autoresponder. 4. Collect leads. 5. Market to the leads. What I don’t see mentioned is “choosing your niche” the niche that you are passionate about.
Wow, this is so inspiring to see how great you are doing from beginning to now. To see that the little bit of money I am making on my blogging has the possibility to increase like yours did. Thank you for sharing this!!
There’s loads of up-sell opportunities from offering training courses and it can easily be scaled if it is mainly self-teaching materials. Not only this, but you can start gathering email addresses from your trainees and start marketing new courses to them.
To get started, it’s a good idea to put together a one-page media kit that details your traffic stats, social media following, audience demographics, and any other data that will make your site more appealing to advertisers. Then, you can approach companies to negotiate a sponsorship deal.

Sort and sweet: how do I know if I can monetize what I know? I’m a widower…married again with five kids…and the death of my first wife taught me more than I ever wanted to know. Can this turn into money? (I fear your answer…or lack of one.). Peace off.
I also like the fact you made it very clear that bloggers are growing a business, and that it is hard, not easy. Although I have a couple of blogs now, I see blogging as just one of the elements in an overarching strategy.
Man 100k per month from just a single blog is absolutely Awesome. You are really an All-In-One Internet guider. I am starting out with my new blog, we are at setup stage, we are preparing free courses for email optins.
I signed my first direct brand partnership with Fannie Mae in late 2017 to help bust the myths of homeownership. I also sold 14 SEO clients directly from the website (or more specifically, this one post on the best SEO tips and this Rockstar Finance thread on SEO). Of those 14, four of them were very profitable SEO engagements. In 2017, I also had the opportunity to help four of the top 20 finance bloggers in the world with SEO issues, so I was both able to add some value and peek under the hood of some really successful money blogs (win-win). Finally, two finance companies also hired me for consulting gigs that took very little of my time but were a lot of fun. In total, I have really scaled back my consulting work and plan to only work with a few brands and other bloggers in 2018, not because I’m not interested, but because it takes so much of my time. Stay tuned for an SEO for bloggers course dropping soon.
Great article Jamie! I’ve only ever used affiliate links on my blog but recently I’ve been getting a lot of text-link offers. A typical email will ask a link to be put into one of my articles (relating to the content or website they want to link back to) and they offer anywhere between $50-$150 per link. Given the nature of your article, I just wanted to check your thoughts on such offers. Are they legitimate or should I have red flags go up as I’d hate to think they increase spam or worse yet affect google ranking or break basic rules of website T&Cs. Again, I’m not familiar in monetizing via such offers and googling about it didn’t give me much info. Thanking you in advance.
That’s one hell of a promise. Just to put a dollar value on it, you could probably sell a blog with 10,000 subscribers for at least $100,000 in most markets. So, I was essentially promising them $100,000 of value in exchange for only $10,000.
Hey Dena! Just hit publish!! I was scared like you too when I first started this blog. But the more you publish and write, the easier it gets and the more comfortable you will be finding your voice. What are your goals for starting a blog? Mine was to share my journey, help others and monetize. You could read this post too – it’s how I worked full time but was a part time blogger and outlines my schedule (warning – it was a little crazy!)
As long as you add the copyright to the bottom of your blog (like in the footer) you should be good to go for protecting your content on your site. With that being said, I know some businesses and bloggers do have tiny watermarks on their logos to protect them, so it’s up to you!
You can gain readers by posting content that wasn’t previously available online, such as scans of obscure or pre-20th century books and artwork. You should still add your own commentary around this content, however.
Wow, what an amazing story! I felt like that for a long time until I decided to do something about it recently. I am really small right now and so far I have zero subscribers. Yet that only means there is work to do! I am definitely checking your blog or website, too. Thanks!
#16 – The Busy Budgeter – $12,484 in March of 2016 – This is another income report from Rosemarie. Her income is mostly split down the middle between affiliates and ad networks, with some income from sponsored posts.
Nanda! Thanks for the words of encouragement. I got lucky this month (august) and had a post go viral. Well it was viral in my opinion and because of that huge boost, I was able to surpass all my numbers from July. Ill be posting my August stats in a week or two. Will be exciting!
Thank you so much for adding me and for compiling these! I love reading income reports. I can’t wait to look at everyone’s numbers. If I remember next month I’ll link to this from my income report and share with everyone 🙂
I feel skeptical writing blogs again as i never had a good experience earlier. Had some blogs and no traffic. Going by your narrative and very useful blog, i hope that i will succeed in my blogging deeds:)
Hey Charlotte! Totally agree – there’s a ton to learn and I am still learning new things all the time ha! You should see how many bookmarks I have on my laptop of websites that I have marked for later reading 🙂
Keeping your day job as you grow your blog will let your grow your blog with less pressure to succeed. If you quit your job and wanted to make a living off your blog.. it would get very stressful, and your blog would suffer in the end.
earn with blogging
If you are interested in covering a broad topic that many people already write about, create multiple specialized blogs instead and link between them when the subjects overlap. For instance, if you are a nutrition expert, write one blog about healthy weight management, another one about child nutrition, and another about growing your own vegetables.
If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s a business model where you endorse other people’s products or services in exchange for a commission. On software and information products, affiliates typically earn a 50% commission or sometimes even more, so it can be quite lucrative.
My understanding is that you have to subscribe/pay for the business version of Word Press in order to use any of the monetizing functions. I think you should clearly state this in this article at the beginning. I think there is a degree of bait and switch here if people are just signing up for the free subscription and then finding out they have to pay for a subscription to make money. I am ok with that, it just needs to be stated up front everywhere.
I’m impressed about the depth of insight you seem to command in this area. It is true there are lots of sites that means opposite of what they say or write but yours is different. Keep on doing a good job out there.
I have been meaning to tell you thanks for including me! I need to get back to publishing these reports, I have been on a blogging sabbatical and have not published anything for a while now so need to get back to it!
