How to Make 10k Per Month Blogging

So you want to get serious about blogging and turn your hobby blog into a cash machine generating $10,000 per month? Lots of people will tell you you’re crazy but making a full-time income from blogging is possible if you know what you’re doing.

I’ve been blogging professionally for over 5 years now and am bringing in over $10,000 per month from my blogs.

When I first started out, I had no idea how bloggers actually made money. I just wrote about topics I enjoyed and assumed the money would somehow appear!

Of course, that’s not how it works. You need to have a strategic plan in place to monetize and scale up your blog.

I’m going to share the step-by-step game plan I’ve used to consistently earn $10k+ per month.

I’ll cover how to choose the right niche and blog topic, optimize your content for search engines, bring in initial traffic, build an audience that engages with your content, get your first affiliate partnerships, utilize display ads, and eventually leverage high-paying direct brand sponsorship deals.

Whether you’re just starting your first blog or are already a blogger looking to boost your monthly income, here is a clear blueprint to $10,000 months in the blogging world.

Make $10k Blogging Step by Step

Here are some tips for how to make $10,000 per month blogging:

Choose a profitable niche. Research different blog niches and select one that has a large audience and products/services people are willing to spend money on. Some examples include personal finance, marketing, web design, travel, parenting, etc.

Create high-quality, in-depth content. Don’t just write short, low-effort posts. Create guides, tutorials, case studies, product reviews, etc. that provide a lot of value. Articles should be a minimum of 800 words.

Monetize with affiliate marketing. Join top affiliate networks and programs relevant to your niche and integrate affiliate links where it makes sense into your content. Most will pay fat commissions on sales you generate.

Put up display ads. Sign up with advertising networks like Google AdSense to get paid from the display ads placed on your site. Payment is based on traffic. Upgrade to Mediavine at 25,000 sessions per month or Raptive once you hit 100,000 pageviews.

Insert sponsored content. Accept payment from relevant brands/businesses to create articles and paid posts to promote their products/services to your audience.

Build an email list right away. Collect email subscribers and send them valuable newsletters, course promos etc. You can charge for providing access to your mailing list.

Sell digital products. Create your own informational products like eBooks, online courses, video tutorials etc. and sell them from your own website.

Expand your blog into a larger site. Hire writers to create more content and diversify what your site covers to appeal to more readers. More traffic means more monetization potential.

It takes significant time and effort, but if done consistently, hitting a $10k monthly income within a year is possible!
