Blog to Make Money – How Much Money Can One Make From Blogging?
Interested in learning the ins and outs of how to blog to make money? For most people looking to start an online business, blogging seems like an easy option, but just how much revenue can one expect from a blog?
Well it’s like most any business, you will get out of it what you put into it. If you are a dedicated and hard-working blogger you can actually make more than enough to make a full-time living. On the other hand, if you are one who plans to put up a blog, add a few posts, and then ignore it for the most part, only blogging here and there when you feel like it, then you will be making little if any money.
The thing is, your blog can be a “golden goose” for you if you are willing to do the work necessary. If you are, your blog can make you quite a bit of money. And I am not talking sweaty back-breaking manual labor here, I am only referring to writing daily and updating your blog very frequently, once a day if possible.
The reason you need to constantly update is a blog is not like a regular website, and the search engines expect to see new content added very frequently. If they don’t see this it will affect the amount of traffic, or readers, who come to your blog. If you don’t have readers then you will have no way of making sales or clicks or any money with whatever way you choose to monetize your blog.
As far as actual amounts of how much you can make, well anywhere from pennies a day to thousands a day.
Really? Thousands per day? It’s true. There is huge money that can be made from a blog. The key is to pick a subject that is searched for and that has a way to monetize. This simply means the niche you choose should have something the readers want to buy. You also need to make sure this is something you have enough interest in to write a lot about because there is quite a bit of writing involved.
So make a list of things you might be interested in blogging about and then ask yourself how many people would be interested in reading about such a thing. If you think there is a big market, jot that down on your list. Now look at your list of possibilities and, with those in mind, visit your local bookstore. How many books and magazines are there about your chosen niche? A lot? A few? If there are a lot of books written on the subject you can bet you have made a good choice.
