Over the last several days I’ve had several new students ask me “can bloggers really make 6-figures a year? That seems impossible”.
Is making 6-figures a year blogging the norm? No.
Let’s get real here for a minute. Most people who start a blog for profit will not make 6-figures a year. This has NOTHING to do with whether they CAN make 6-figures a year blogging. It is totally doable.
The problem is that many people who start blogging for profit start without a plan. They get started with one of those Pinterest Posts that helps you Set Your Blog Up in 10 Minutes and promises you’ll make 100,000 a month in no time.
But, that’s where the post ends. It helps you get set up and then the rest is up to you to navigate. That’s because hosting companies, like Bluehost, pay nice affiliate commissions to bloggers that get other bloggers to sign up with them.
One red flag to watch out for….if the blog that’s sharing Bluehost as the “best” option for starting your blog isn’t actually hosted on Bluehost then they’re probably doing it for the affiliate income.
Anyway, these new bloggers are just left there trying to figure out what to do and how to blog for profit. They get frustrated and quit. Heck, I would too…wouldn’t you?
Is it possible to make 6-figures a year blogging? Yes.
It is definitely possible to make 6-figures a year blogging. I personally make that much, many of my blogging friends make that much, and several of my students are on the way to hitting 6-figures this year.
But, it’s not as simple as throwing up a blog and waiting for traffic to come rolling in. There’s a strategy behind blogging and generating a 6-figure business. Just like your company has a strategy for reaching sales goals, you need a strategy for properly monetizing your site. The bloggers that make 6-figures a year blogging have multiple streams of income that all work together to generate that income.
Is it probable? That depends.
The probability of building a blog that makes 6-figures a year is totally up to you. If you’re ready for a change in your life and willing to do the work you have a higher probability of holding out and making it than someone who’s just coasting by and dabbling with their blog. If you’re someone who takes action and can follow A-B-C-1-2-3 directions and are willing to invest in changing your future then I know you can do it!
