Make $100 a Day From Your Blog
Making $100 a day from your blog is really easy. In fact, you should feel very dumb if you’re not.
A successful person makes reasonable goals and achieves them.
If you want to be successful in anything you have to make short-term and long-term goals. The same thing goes for making money from your blog. You have to force yourself to create the goals and do everything you can to achieve them. Sometimes, that might mean staying up an extra few hours at night or even missing sleep entirely.
A list of reasonable daily blog goals (you can decide how many days a week)
By the end of today I will have……
1. Written at least two blog posts
2. Responded to all comments left on my blog
3. Visited the websites of the people who left comments on my blog and will have posted a comment on theirs.
4. Visited other blogs in my niche, will have left appropriate comments and will have built a relationship.
5. Started an email relationship with at least one other blogger.
6. Met my monetary goal for the day
7. Found a way to add at least 10 subscribers to my newsletter list. (This is a very important step if you are going to leave stage 1)
8. Found some way to get at least 1 – 2 backlinks to my site.
Reasonable daily monetary goals
In the beginning it is reasonable to set a low monetary goal. But as time goes by, $100 a day is not hard at all. Below I am going to list the different stages of monetization.
Stage 1: Between $1 – $5 a day
Most of your money is going to be made through pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. This would include programs such as AdSense and AuctionAds.
Stage 2: Between $5 – $20 a day
At this point, you should be consistently making a few dollars a day from advertising programs on your blog. If you are following the above daily steps, you should have a consistent readership of your blog. This means that your Alexa ranking and your Search Engine rankings are getting you to a point where you can start to get paid to write reviews of products or websites.
There are a few ways to get money by doing reviews. The easiest way is to post in forums a lot and use a signature. Your signature can say something like “I will review your site on my blog, PM for details.
When you first start doing reviews, you might have to do a few for free. Then you can start charging $5 – $10 per review. If your customer is satisfied, they will probably pay you to review their other websites. (In the beginning it might be worthwhile to exchange reviews).
Stage 3: Between $20 – $50 a day
By this time, your Alexa ranking should be 100,000 or lower and your Google PR should be at 5. If this is true about your site, you can start charging people for putting links on your site. A link on a PR5 site should run about $5/month. A review on a high traffic blog can cost anywhere from $10 – $20 Your blog is also at a stage where you can start selling banner ads.
In stage 3 you are going to have a pretty good following. This is a following that is now starting to trust you. This is a good time to start promoting affiliate programs. As long as the affiliate programs you are promoting are in your niche, you should be making a lot of money. Don’t forget to advertise your affiliates in your newsletter.
Stage 4: Between $50 – $100 a day
You have probably been following the above steps for at least 7 months to a year. Your Google PR is at 6, your Alexa ranking is lower than 50,000 and you are ranking pretty high on some keywords in the search engines.
In stage 4 you are making decent money. You have become a professional blogger and a trusted member of your community. You are ready to create an ebook on how you make $50 – $100 a day. At this point, people are ready to pay you for consultations and will definitely pay you more money for reviews and advertising space.
It is time to write information products on “tips and secrets” in your niche.
Stage 5: $100 and over a day
You are now almost a Guru in your field. You have finished your information products and have submitted them to affiliate sites like Clickbank. You now have people selling your products for you and visiting your blog on a daily basis.
Because of your success medium size websites and podcasters want to interview you. You are on your way to being able to quit your day job. You are ready to start other blogs and start making a “killing”.
Your Short-Term Goals
Your short-term goals are the 5 stages I listed above. Once you have reached a particular stage, you need to write in the exact date you expect to reach the next stage. Not only do you have to write the date, you have to achieve the goal by that date.
