Many people would like to start a blog but aren’t sure if they will make any money blogging.
We actually had the same question when we started blogging in February of last year.
We saw other bloggers make thousands of dollars a month, and while we wanted to do the same, we weren’t sure if it was possible.
But guess what? We started our blog anyway.
And you know what happened, after much hard work and persistence? We now make over $10,000 a month from our blog.
It’s true. You can check out our latest income report by clicking here.
Our answer is an emphatic, “Yes!”
But you have to put in the work.
We have probably put in over 1,000 hours into the blog you are reading right now.

How Do Blogs Make Money?
There are three main ways that blogs make money.
(1) Ad Revenue
On this blog, you might have noticed ads for various companies in our articles as well as in our sidebar.
These are placed by the ad network we are a part of.
In return, we get paid a decent sum of money.
We make about $1,000 – $2,000 each month from these ads, as you can see in our latest income report.
(2) Affiliate Revenue
You will also notice in certain articles that we link to other websites’ products or services.
These are called affiliate links.
We get a commission, or affiliate revenue, whenever a reader signs up or purchases one of those other websites’ products or services.
We make over $10,000 a month from affiliate revenue, as you can see in our latest income report.
(3) Product Sales
Many blogs have their own line of products that they sell to their readers.
We only have one product right now.
It is our WordPress course that you can get for free.

So Is Blogging a Good Business to Start?
Typically, the greater the reward there is in something, the higher the risk and lower the chance there is in getting there.
But this risk-reward matrix is turned on its head when it comes to blogging. See, blogging has the potential for extremely high reward.
You can make thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars a month blogging. And there is a very good chance you will earn money with blogging if you get your blog set up the right way (like we show you below) and commit to consistently writing quality blog posts (not one 50-word post every few months).
And blogging is extremely low-risk. Your out-of-pocket costs will typically be less than $10 a month. That’s it. That’s your total risk.
In fact, we can’t think of too many other businesses that offer this much potential for reward for expenses of less than $10 a month.
This is why we believe that blogging is such a good way to make money.
