As the voice of reason $100 may seem possible starting from a beginners standpoint. And yet, for the time it would be impossible. This $100 is aimed at individuals who have reasonably great traffic flow to their site. Around 40,000 to 50,000 pageviews will be needed to achieve this goal. Generally a rough estimate of anywhere to 600-800 pages should already be published. The published pages should be no less than 300-400 words (the word count can be more if you wish) and as an insider tip, a video should be attached to nearly every page at the end of your article. Whether It’s Youtube, Vimeo or another video platform website.
However, if content seems to elude you try speaking to your loyal followers. Ask for advice, tips and if anyone would like to contribute to the site. Whether the topics range from creative writing, technological advancements or relationship advice columns, having a helping hand can improve revenue as well as page views. Don’t forget to link up social media ties to the site. Spread the word through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Snapchat or even LinkedIn.
For some percentage details and numbers, to come anywhere close to $100 a day look at the CPC’s (Cost Per Click) and CTR’s (Click Through Rate). Since one site typically only allows three ad spots, times that by 100 for your CTR. So for a little math if you received 3 clicks from 300 ad impressions the CTR would be 1%. The formula looks like this 3/300 times 100. At the end of the day it all comes down to percentage. Yet this means the CPC would be priced at 25 cents per word.
Up to at least 100 viewers would actually have to view the site each day. But the fun part is the bonus section of page views. Depending on how many page views are calculated day to day this is where CPM (Cost Per 1000 Impressions) comes in. From 30,000 views could equal out to $30 – $50 dollars a day.
There is also another strategy about making up to $6,000 based on selling ads. Which honestly is a whole other category on it’s own. If you happen to be an expert on bidding, selling ad space and still managing a fairly decent amount of income from your blog then give it shot.
Again a bit of information to use, free content is available at the ready. Inviting in other writers or individuals who want to contribute may mean splitting a bit of that revenue. However if paying others to write content is not in the budget, make a suggestion page especially for open discussion. Some may be willing to write content for free publication. The suggestion/advice page is a great call on anyone’s part because from day to day (unless you are writing a novel and publish page by page) content tends to thin out a bit over time. Asking your visitors what they would like to read about is essential to staying connected and on top of the blogging world.
