Blogging – How Much Can You Really Make From Your Blog?
So How Much Money Can You Actually Make With Your Blog?
Whilst it is fairly easy to set up your own blog about something that interests you, or on a topic that you are knowledgeable about, it is another thing generating a decent income from it.
It is also fairly common knowledge that some bloggers are making in excess of $10,000 a month and some are making in the region of $100,000.
Furthermore, it can also be assumed that most of us would be more than satisfied if our blogs were earning in the region of the former figure, however the reality is that most bloggers are not even making enough to cover their blog hosting costs.
2 Things That Could Influence the Earning Potential of Your Blog
Let’s face it – without traffic your blog, no matter how great it looks and works, will not generate much money.
Targeted traffic therefore plays a significant role in the earning potential of your blog.
2. Niche or Theme
The niche or topic of your blog is the other significant factor.
For instance, if the niche you have targeted for your blog does not have much of a following or interest you probably won’t get much traffic but on the other hand if your theme is in an extremely hot niche the competition could be too high and you would be competing against the big guns for little traffic.
So the trick is to position yourself in a less competitive niche that has a strong demand which will provide highly targeted traffic to your blog.
Niche targeted traffic and site visitors are also more likely to take some sort of action, by either making a purchase or clicking an ad, once they are on your blog.
So Just How Much Are Bloggers Earning From Their Blogs?
In a poll done to determine bloggers’ earnings, whilst 29% made less than $10 a month, almost 10% were earning in excess of $20,000 a month just from their blogs.
So for those whose earnings are not exactly where they should be, hopefully you will get some inspiration by knowing that it is totally possible to make decent money with your blog by finding out exactly what tweaks you need to make to your blog and blogging activities.
