How Long Does it Take To Start Earning Money From Blogging?

This is a very hard question to answer. We started earning an income after about a year of blogging, but we weren’t going at it very hard for the first 6 months. We would go on the blog every month or so, add an article and a few pictures and that was about it.

If you were to start a travel blog today and work really hard at it (around 3 – 4 focused hours / day), then there’s no reason that you couldn’t start earning around $500 / month from it after 6 months. For travellers, that’s a pretty good chunk of change!

After a year you could be earning $1000 – $1500 / month and after two or three years, if you kept at it and constantly marketed yourself, you could earn $5,000 / month or more. Of course these numbers would completely vary depending on your individual hustle and strategy, but they should give you a rough idea of income.


How Do Blogs Earn Money?

Sponsored Content: Most blogs start profiting in this way. A company basically contacts you via email (or you reach out to them) and ask to write a review about their product or brand. They pay for this review and the link to their site (between $200 – $750 USD / article). More about why this is a bad practice later in this post.

Affiliate Sales: Instead of getting paid for the link, a better way to arrange payment is via commission. Affiliate marketing is when you link to a product or service from your blog and when one of your readers makes a purchase through your link, the company tracks it and sends you a percentage of the sale.

eBooks & Product Sales: Pretty self-explanatory. You write a book or create a product and sell it to your blog readers.

Content Creation & Freelance Writing: Many blogger write articles for other websites and are paid per post. This can range from $25 – $500 / per article.

Banner Ads :  Banner  ads that are placed around your blog, when someone clicks / purchases, you get paid.

Sponsored Social Sharing: A brand will contact you and ask you to share their brand or product on your social media like facebook, twitter, instagram etc. Depending on your numbers, these can be charged at around $200 per  share.

Brand Ambassadorships: A brand asks you to continuously use their product / service and write about it, and they pay you a monthly salary.

Press Trips: A tourism board or tour company invites you to their country to write about your experiences. They do this because your blog has large numbers and they want to introduce your readers to their tour or destination. The deal typically includes flights, all transport, food, travel and entertainment for the duration of the trip and you can charge for your services on top of this (upwards of $3,500 / two-week trip).
