Great post!I’ve been blogging strong on my DIY blog for about 3 years now and use Adsense as my way of income. I’m wanting to switch over to a higher paying ad company and also would like to come up with some kind of product to sell on my site for additional income, although I just haven’t thought of a good product yet that people would purchase. My blog has a busy season and a slow season. My busiest month Oct.
averages about 100,000 visits, I earn about $150 on Adsense, and I get about 280 subscribers that month. My slowest month Jan I get around 16,000 visits, earn about $10 on adsense, and get around 50 subscribers that month. Does anyone else have a busy month and a slow month like me?Along with wanting to earn more money, I also would like to figure out how to engage my readers a little more as getting them to leave comments on my posts is like pulling teeth!LOL Always looking for ways to improve my site so any advice would be greatly appreciated!I’m incredibly proud of the work I’ve done, but this post really tells me I need to work HARDER – I just don’t know what directon to work harder in. I made about 350$ with adsense in July and 400$ in Aug adthrive set up ads two days ago woohoo!BUT I am making NOWHERE NEAR full time income. I took the affiliate marketing course… I just can’t bring myself to write sponsored posts… I’m working on an ebook that I’m pretty sure will appeal to about 15% of my readers tops.
I feel like the blog is running off ahead of me and I’m just stumbling along behind it. What should be the logical next step for monetization after “success” at ads – but while you’re still struggling to figure out content creation and growing loyal readers?Hey!I absolutely loved this post!I have been blogging for almost 7 months now, and I feel like I just don’t get the pageviews I should be. I believe I have a great blog that many would enjoy, have good graphics, a great site, and pretty good content. I recently took a free pinterest class from Melyssa Griffin and it definitely helped, but maybe not as much as I was expecting. I’ve revamped pinterest, and it’s slowly working, but I just feel like I’m way behind for how long I’ve had my blog.
I should have more monthly pageviews!I only recieve about 600 1000 pageviews/month!I think that’s really low for the quality of my blog and how long i’ve had it. I’ve always wanted to invest in Elite Blog Academy, but as a student it’s nearly impossible while also paying for stock photos, hosting, etc. Is there anything you see wrong in this equation?I am with some of the others… I have only 1,000 1500 plus pageviews on a good month. I dropped drastically in November to like 250 500 but getting back into 1500s range. I almost saw 2,000 once and that was exciting but getting past that seems so hard!My goal was to hit 100,000 and I took EBA this past year.
The only thing I can think is that I haven’t been consistent in posting and my newsletter. I have 1030 email subscribers. And my main focus is to post 2 times a week this year using everything I learned last year and your 10 hours per week strategy. i work full time, have three young kiddos, and run an online shop the Dashing Pearl which gets a few orders every week, not a ton but my goal was to blog about crafting, organization and craft business to attract more ppl to my site via the blog and make a full time income from it. I even prefer my blog to be the front runner over the shop. I blog at so any tips is so appreciated.
