Your information is wonderful, congratulations on your success! I’m so new at blogging that I am still writing content. I haven’t published yet, and really need some guidance on what the next steps should be. I’m nervous about it all, but am confident that I have a winning idea. I have my theme, domain name, and just feel like I need more help. Do you have time to answer some questions or can you direct me in terms of getting more help on this? I work a full-time job and only have limited time on weekends to get my blog going. Like you, I want to earn enough to be able to quit my job! Thanks very much for your information and for your help!!!!
Excellent article and very true points! I love spending some time on blog and making sure it is organized, as this will make it easier for visitors to follow. Mine is about creative stories and thoughts of mine and includes a store and chat people can spend some time on as well.
Facebook – Depending on your niche you can expect to pay about $1 per click to your blog, but there are many variables that can influence how much you will pay. Depending on the nature of your business this can provide some excellent ROI in terms of initial sales, but the main focus of this ad campaign is to get people to your blog. Wow them with your content and get them to opt-in to your email list for more updates.
Connections definitely matter, but I don’t think meeting the right people is a matter of luck. When I was a beginner, I made a list of all the people I wanted to know, and I mapped out a strategy for building a relationship with each of them. It’s no coincidence that, years later, all of them are friends. I made sure of it.
Allow readers to purchase your own products or donate to your cause through your blog. If you have an online store for selling arts and crafts, or you create T-shirt designs available through a clothing website, provide links to those sites. Including a PayPal button for quick, safe purchases or donations is a common way to monetize creative blogs, or blogs that provide free advice or assistance to those who can’t afford it.
WOW Jon! great post, Only read it quickly so I will go over it again later! Lesson 9 is the eye opener! I find it really difficult to give away great content that I have just spent hours writing, but as you say, it’s got to be done!!
I would suggest you one thing. It would be better to post the income reports each month. After few months, you would have a considerable post and when someone will need to see the income proof, he or she will come to your site. You may get linking to your posts.
This goes against the grain of 90% of what I’ve learned from the”experts” in the last 9 months of blogging. But man it feels right. I’m so worried about short term gains that I’m not building a long term foundation. I’m thinking so small! These lessons are profound, Jon. Thanks!
Thank you for your advice. I’m definitely interested in applying these techniques to my make money online blog. I currently have Google Adsense on my blog and I offer advertising banner spots on my website through micro job sites. But $100k a month is awesome! I’ll even be happy with $100k a year. If I can get my blog on that level, I could quit my job and work from home. I’m re-reading these techniques tonight and applying them to my blog. Thank you so much!
earn with blogging
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!
Wow! Great list – I never thought blogging could be so lucrative! I would like to see how the personal finance blogs compare to the bloggers this list. Still trying to figure out what these guys do to earn that kind of monthly income…
Loved this article. I do get caught up with wasting time sharing to Twitter and Facebook and not seeing the traffic. I had my 1st Blogiversary in Nov 2014 and am getting a lot of positive feedback but not seeing the traffic. How do you get on some guest blog spots? We have an 1820 Farmhouse and do most of the work restoring the house and also I have a passion for cooking so I do a lot of food presentation and recipes. Love to hear what you think at BeFedAgain.com
What a great article sir, the information is well organized and very comprehensive. I can imagine the effort you put into this and especially appreciate you sharing it. Anyone starting a blog should make this their go to place to start.
Posts like this have reminded me that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and more than one way to be successful (as opposed to the 9-5 grind). Hard work really does pay off and I can’t wait to see the fruits of my (upcoming) labor!
Initially, we placed ads for our own products in each of the three spots, and we tracked all the sales resulting from someone clicking on the ad. I don’t remember the precise numbers, but we had something like $50,000 in product sales over 30 days. Not too shabby.
Thank you very much for posting an honest post about your first earnings with the blog. It took me a long time and I don’t earn monthly income on my blog. I earn so much from Adsense per month (not alot) and the odd referral. I guess if I added some affiliate marketing I could maybe make more. Either way I enjoyed reading this and I know its an old post but it is nice to see people giving positive and honest insights.
I now believe financial report of your site is among its propellers. Simply put, it motivates ametuers to dare. Someone somewhere feels like to start something too. Something of their own and be proud of. And that someone is ME!
You can manage a WordPress blog from mobile browser. However, this will be difficult as many features on your screen would appear different or may not be visible. Plugins will be unable to adjust their settings page to your device size. In short, it is not practical in the long run.
Hey can you help me? I am all new to this and is very interested in becoming a blogger. I mainly want to write about life in Hawai’i. I have been searching and watching videos all day. Im just stuck on where to start? and how to get things going? i really would like your help please
I was gonna start a blog again. However, I feel it would be better to start an art website instead. Had a personal blog from 2011-2014. Most of the visitors were from traffic exchanges or purchased clicks. In other words, they were robot views. I found some good free domains for anyone to get started and they’re also top ranked!
In January 2015, I bought my blog and decided to get serious and treat it more like a business. I really wanted to make blogging a side hustle that earned me money! While I loved the idea of blogging as a hobby, I really wanted to earn income from it!
Granted, it’s not really a fair comparison. With your own products, you have to consider the cost of development, support, and other miscellaneous expenses, but even factoring those in, advertising our products was still more profitable by far.
I am a very successful entrepreneur and wish to blog about how to build success thru proper moral business ethics; things like Honesty, integrity and moral vigor are things that are quickly becoming the “past”.
My affiliate revenue fluctuates a lot month to month, but I’m going to try and make it more consistent and grow it in 2018. Most, but not all of the affiliates I work with are listed on my best money tools page. I am in the process of scaling a few of my affiliate relationships that align well with Millennial Money. I also run display ads through the AdThrive network and work with MyFinance – both have solid payouts per pageview, but I’ve been scaling them back a little bit to make the reading experience cleaner.
You are not going to make any money from your blog if people don’t read it. After all, your readers are the ones who are going to make you money, whether they’re clicking on your ads or buying your products. Always put your readers first.
It can guide future product creation. If one affiliate product sells 10X better than all the others you promote, you might want to think about developing your own version of the product, because you have proof your audience wants it.
Great content. Just what I have been looking for. I realized that I have been spending lots of hours creating content for my blog but doing nothing when it comes to outreaching and promiting my content.
On this page I want to walk you through the process of how to make money blogging. It’s perfect for those who already have a blog but if you don’t I recommend you check out our guide to starting a blog (it’s step 1).
Instead of a job board, you could create an event calendar where you charge people to advertise their events. This also works well if you already have an established audience, because businesses will be willing to pay to reach your audience.
Hey! I really want to thank you for providing these tips for someone who is just starting out. Sometime its difficult to know where to start. With your post, it has given me a clear focus and motivation. Thanks so much Jamie
thanks for sharing the info,as a newbie blogger i am always interesting in knowing what is earning potential of blogs and when i see that kind of figures then feel happy that there is enough potential which i want to earn.
Several years ago I realized bloggers were making money. In some cases, they were making good money! And many of them seemed like regular people, just like me. How exactly were they doing it? And could I make money blogging too?
