How much money can you make blogging?

You've probably heard some people claim that they can make six figures by blogging. Is that true, or are these people blowing smoke? Since blogging income is dependent on advertisements and your traffic, it's very possible to make a large amount of money if you have a high volume of traffic on your blog. You won't generate that type of traffic overnight, but if you're creative, strategic, and persistent, then you may find that blogging is a great way to make some supplemental income.

Ads that target health care professionals like physicians often pay much more compared to standard consumer ads. Therefore, to make your blogging cost-effective, you should target a physician audience.
  • Do you have an idea that would capture a medical audience?
  • Are you willing to spend time writing about it?
  • Can you be creative so that you can refresh your content on a regular basis?
  • Do you have the stamina to persevere when you're not seeing any results?
Blogging can take a few hours a month, or it could take a few hours a day. It's totally up to you. To generate traffic, you need to have good content and a strategic way to market your site. Whether you're launching a corporate website or a personal blog, many of the same website promoting principles will apply if you want to be successful. You'll need to explore targeted advertising, search engine optimization, social media, and much more.
