Are you wondering how fast can you make money blogging? If so, welcome to Internet of Business. I am glad you have made it here. Who doesn’t want to make money quick right? It seems as if the slogan “get rich quick” is see as scammy. Well, would you rather get rich quick or get rich slow? What do we have more of? Money or time?

My advice is to work smart. There are plenty of resources available to you here at Internet of Business that will set you up for success. The trick is taking action or just skimming over the details. How fast can you make money blogging depends entirely on you. Do you want to start a blog as a mean to start earning income online? If so, it requires consistent work.

What is your why? Are you sick of trading time for money? Are you tired of office politics and being told when you can go home for the day? Do you despise having to ask permission to take a vacation? What about evaluation reports and constantly being measured up against your peers.

Work Smarter not Harder

We weren’t taught this in our school systems. Of course, there is honor working a full-time or part-time job. Make no mistake about this. Businesses need employees in order to survive. We need truckers to deliver goods to corporations. That being said, linear income requires ones’ time. What happens to your paycheck the moment you cannot work or get sick? Will your employer continue to pay you regardless if you work or not?

No. The paycheck stops coming in the moment you stop showing up for work. So, the goal here is to provide some tips to help you to start building residual income. I highly recommend reading the post I wrote about digital entrepreneurship. The idea of producing a digital product once and continuing to get paid for years to come after making it is working smart. Passive income is unique. How fast can you make money blogging? It depends on the value you are producing.

I have another website called rundreamachieve. I have created running courses using the Podia software. The idea there was to use create written content on my blog but also create courses I could link to in my blog posts. So, when creating your blog don’t just think specifically about blog posts. Also, think of additional income-generating assets you can create to add to it.

How quickly can you make money with a blog?

A good guesstimate is 6 months to a year. Of course, your tenacity will play a part in how fast can you make money blogging. Yes, you can start making money in a matter of a few weeks with enough ingenuity. As mentioned above, creating a course using Podia is one way to start making sales. Is your blog brand new? If so, you may need to start running Facebook or Google ads to it so you can get some traffic to your product or blog post.

So, there are ways to get eye balls to your blog or website. Do you have an aged-website? If so, the hard facts are you need to continue to create quality content. There are so many ways to build income online with a blog. Below are just a few…

  • Network marketing.
  • Affiliate marketing.
  • Create a course to help solve someone else’s problem
  • Add a consulting service to your blog i.e. create a PayPal button and add your dollar amount to it
  • Build a list of subscribers to your blog you can e-mail

Can you realistically make money blogging?

Yes, it is very much feasible to do this. You simply have to think outside the box. Digital entrepreneurs are not going about their income generation in the normal way. Remember, there are only 24 hours in a day. I don’t care how much you love your job there is only so much service you can provide in a day. You and I need sleep and rest.

Well, your blog doesn’t. So, it is essential that you are creating valuable content and producing products that can help others. Your focus always needs to be on solving other people’s problems. Do you have expertise in any specific topic? Why not create a course revolved around your speciality that offers a solution to a problem others have?

You don’t necessarily have to create a product to make money with a blog. You can be an affiliate and earn income.

Sign Up as an Affiliate

Affiliate marketing is where you share a product someone else created and earn a commission when someone purchases that product. For example, it is free to sign up to be a RunDreamAchieve affiliate.

I offer my affiliates a 40 percent commission on each sale they make of any of my running courses. My Sub 3 Hour Marathon Pro course sells for $197. My affiliates earn $78.80 USD every time someone purchases one of my courses using their affiliate link. So, you can write a blog post about my or someone else’s product and place your affiliate link into your post.

Someone may be interested in running or fitness, click your link and purchase. You, in return, earn a commission. Again, this is working smart. That being said, you have to first create the content via a blog post. You could also…

Start Your Own YouTube Channel

There are many people who ask how fast can you make money blogging. One additional way you can start making money blogging is starting your own YouTube channel. I usually post my YouTube videos in my blog posts. You can do the same with your website. Again, focus first on answering the needs that other people have.

Worry about the welfare of other people before your own. You will be much more successful if you do. A major mistake bloggers make is wondering what is in it for me? How much money can I make is the wrong answer. The better question is how much value can I produce? The more of this you can produce the higher your income is going to go.

I have been blogging since 2011 and have numerous websites. No, I didn’t start making money overnight. It has been a process. That being said, the tips I am sharing in this post are what has helped me to make thousands of dollars per month now, passively. I could stop creating content now and still continue to earn. Of course, I won’t because I enjoy what I am doing.

Is blogging still profitable in 2022?

It doesn’t cost any money to start a YouTube channel. You do need to get 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time in order to be accepted into the YouTube partner program. Once you have achieved this you can start running ads on your videos and earn passive income this way. Yes, blogging is still very much profitable in 2022.

Starting a YouTube channel is just one of many ways to get your brand to more people. You can always sign up for Facebook, Instagram or TikTok. In addition, share your blog posts and products on your social media outlets. Vlogging is just one additional way to get more eyeballs to your blog.

Closing Thoughts

I hope that this blog post has been helpful. Again, make sure to check out the resources that I mentioned throughout this post. Take action. I know it isn’t easy and you will definitely need to be consistent. So, don’t give up. Blogging takes work and consistent action to start earning residual (passive) income. Yes, it can be done.

Make sure you don’t write about anything that comes to mind. I wrote a post about KWFinder that I highly recommend you read. It is a software that I use to find keywords that my potential customers are already typing into the search engines. As a blogger you have to be strategic in the content that you produce.

You can write the most incredible blog post ever made. What happens if no one is searching for the topic you wrote about? Worse, what happens if you write a blog post about the keyword “blogging”? That search terms gets searched 3.9 million times per month. You will not rank for this keyword. So, make use of the tools that I have mentioned throughout this post to work smarter, not harder.
