Hey guys! Sorry for not updating this blog, as am busy working on my new niche site, which am going to share here in coming weeks.
Last week I met a person who was hungry to make money online, so explained him few ways on how to make money online. Most easiest way according to me for that person was through blogging, so I recommended him to start a blog of his interested niche. And asked him to give complete information to user regarding the topic.

He asked me, how much can I earn monthly?
Yes, I was expecting this question from him. This is what many new bloggers ask. I said, it depends on various factors, like CPC if you’re monetizing with Adsense, number of sales you’re making if it’s affiliate marketing etc…
But, he asked me same question, roughly how much I can make in a month.
I can give him any number, but am afraid as it depends on his work and dedication. So I showed him my earning, and other fellow bloggers earning (he is my friend’s friend so revealed :)).
Then he asked about how and from where to start. Select one domain name, then hosting, I said.
He interrupted asking me how much it cost?
I said this much (amount), all of a sudden I noticed that his anxiety was missing when he heard about cost. Then I asked him, if you’re starting an offline business will you not invest?
He answered, yes I will.
This is investment for your online business. Advised him not to think about making money, just think about giving complete information to user, then money flows. Start only if you’re interested, there are many other offline ways to make money more than online and left it to him.
So this how many new bloggers are starting and ending up there blogging career.
To earn more you must spend more
Like the person about whom I discussed above, everyone including me think that online is only place to make quick money. You don’t believe when I was newbie I thought why I see unemployment in India when you can make easy money through online.
Now I laugh at me
Years and months passed, now I know what it takes to make money through online. It takes work, hard work, dedication, time, patience, right strategy, firm decision, strong belief and sometimes luck!
So friends, reason why am writing this post is, you must now realize that blogging is your business and whatever you’re spending is investment on your business it may or may not return.
But when you spend on right thing, chances of getting profit is more. What are those things?
There are many I can’t list all of them here, but few of them are:
- Hosting, good hosting pays you back. I strong recommend Hostgator or Bluehost for this. (For new bloggers, dedicated hosting for top blogs).
- For blog designing, I recommend to hire designer for this work, Neil Patel of Quicksprout.com invested $20K for designing, and he got them back! (Don’t spend high when you don’t have zero users). I recommend Genesis framework, cheap and reliable. (affiliate link)
- Then comes quality content, improve your writing or hire quality writers.
- Use best email marketing service – Mailchimp or Aweber.
- To improve website speed I use MaxCDN – a content delivery network. It share your files to various server location decreasing the access time.
- And domain name, for branding domains you can check out WordPress related domain names.
Well these are most essential and for fully loaded blog. But yes there are many who’re working on blogger platform, but I don’t think it’s safe to be dependent on those services and when your blog is about blogging and making money do you think users will trust you when you recommend hosting which you’re not using?
Okay guys, one more thing. Don’t read and leave. Act now! Else someone will take the chance.
