Have you been blogging for several months now or even more than a year but still unfortunate in making money on your blog? Perhaps, you have tried placing PPC advertisements like Adsense, but still only earning cents and can’t even reach the threshold for earning payout. Maybe you also have just started your blog a few months ago and you’re still figuring it out how to earn income through your blog. Whatever your situation is, whether you’ve been blogging for years now or you will just start launching your blog in the coming days, you have to learn how to surely make money online on your blog.
There is an old saying that to achieve your goals, you have to make your move slowly but surely. But I somehow tend to disagree. For me, we have to move at the right speed to achieve certainty. In other words, we need to make money online, neither too slow nor too quick. Remember that timing is an important element of success.
Making money online
Let’s admit it… we need money. We need to pay our domain name’s annual registration, monthly web hosting, and even compensate the precious time we spent on creating our blog posts and promoting them everywhere. There’s nothing wrong with making money as long as we are doing it the good way. Money isn’t the root of all evil, but it is the “love of money” that is the cause of all evil. So let’s start making money the right and surely way. Here are some important tips and guide to ensure that you will make profit on your blog.
Get a lot of traffic
Traffic converts to profit. Without visitors to your blog, it won’t generate income. How many traffic do you need to start making money online? The answer depends on the quantity and quality of your traffic. Are they targeted to your niche? Are they organic, meaning are they coming from search engines? There are many factors which define your traffic as profitable or not. But to ensure that you will make money online, you have to consider both quality and quantity.
How to drive massive traffic?
The more audience you have, the more revenue potential you will have. For example if you wish to earn money from Google’s Adsense, a hundred visitors a day might not be enough for you to cash out and receive a penny from Google every month. You might need to earn more than a thousand unique visitors daily to finally enjoy cashing out bucks from Google in a monthly basis. But how can you achieve a thousand or more visitors every day?
This blog is already receiving more than 3,000 unique visitors daily as of today. And yes, it’s earning passive income from different sources. Now, how do I drive such number of people to this blog every day? The answer lies in my blog posts. I currently have 475 blog posts on this blog, including this one. Some of these posts are attracting a significant percentage of my entire traffic every day. They are the posts that went viral, went on top of the search engine result pages, or bookmarked by many people.
The level of traffic I have now is brought by both the quality and quantity of my blog posts. This means that I had lesser traffic when I had fewer numbers of posts and I will have higher traffic if I will publish more posts. Just imagine if I will reach 1,000 blog posts in the future, how many visitors would I earn for that?
Now, if you only have 100 blog posts in your blog right now, then it’s time to increase them to 400, to 1,000, or even more. If you already have 500 blog posts but still receiving fewer visitors than I do, then it’s time to increase the quality of you blog posts. As I said, you have to have both quality and quantity on your blog posts.
The certainty in making money online
If we will ask ourselves, can a blogger surely make money online on his blog? Of course yes! I ask you… can you surely publish 500 quality blog posts in your blog? Yes you can! You just need time and dedication. Make the 500 quality blog posts as you core mission. Focus on it. If you will write at least one blog post a day, then you can achieve it in 500 days or 1 year and almost 5 months. If you can’t write at least one blog post a day, then you can extend your time to 2 years. You may also hire quality writers to help you achieve your goal faster.
Remember that 500 quality blog posts is already a higher goal. You can actually start making money online even if you only reach half of it. Thus, you can actually make money online in less than a year, or even in less than six months if you know how to promote your posts, stories, articles, and links on social media (social media marketing) and in search engines (search engine optimization).
Making money online fast
Well, there’s of course some ways to make money only quickly. For example, you can develop a blog for a month then sell it for profit. There are also other bloggers who use techniques, like spamming and cheating to earn quick cash. However, these will not give you passive income. They won’t give you lasting profit. With those tactics, you will also risk your online reputation. And when you are penalized, your goal to make money online might only be replaced with losing money and integrity online. I hope you get it.
Making money online on your blog can be a simple math equation. Do you want to increase your profit? Increase your traffic. Do you want to boost your traffic? Increase the quality and quantity of your blog posts. Do you want to increase the quality and quantity of your blog posts? Then power up yourself – increase your time, energy, hard work, patience, and dedication. Don’t forget to be consistent and persistent too.
