Blogging is a very interesting idea to openly express our thoughts on various things using writing, photography or other media and publishing it online for everyone to view your insights. Blogging started off as an online daily diary style entry and over the years due to its popularity, it has developed into a profitable business.

Many new bloggers are earning around $ 100 to $ 190 per month in their first year of blogging itself.

Established Bloggers who implement powerful monetization tactics and have been experts in the field for around 5 to 7 years will be earning from $ 500 to $15000.

Different Types of Bloggers

Salary Range of the Different Types of Bloggers

A blogger’s salary range varies a lot based on the type of blogger he/she is. The full-time bloggers who write for business companies or large-scale companies will earn around $40,000 to $80,000 USD per year. The part-time bloggers who write for business companies or small-scale companies will earn a maximum of around $65,000 per year.

When it comes to freelancers, we can categorize them into experienced freelancers and beginners. Experienced freelancers may earn up to 10 cents to $1 per word in their blog articles. The beginners will earn lesser than the experienced ones. Freelancers will be paid either directly by the clients they work for, or they will be paid through the freelancing network or the freelancer writers’ hiring companies.

Independent blog owners are bloggers who create their own blogs on blogging websites. The independent blog owners will not have a constantly fixed salary every month like the freelancers or full-time business bloggers or part-time business bloggers.

The independent blog owners will generate their income using various other techniques such as:

  • Online courses
  • Services
  • Memberships
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Sponsored Posts
  • AdSense
  • Product Sales
  • Advertisements
  • Social Media

As a marketing specialist and a business growth analyst, I have consulted many successful bloggers who have taken my advice seriously and rectified their mistakes. The following factors listed will make you a successful blogger which is the mistake many beginners lack in doing as they think that blogging is just writing articles and posting it online.

1.     Must have solid business planning.

2.     Should research the top trending profitable niches and choose a profitable blogging niche.

3.     Use various attractive monetization strategies to attract their audience and niche.

4.     When choosing a niche make sure that you have strong knowledge about it so that all the blogs created will be unique and informative for the audience.

5.     Must compulsorily have a solid understanding of how search engine optimization (SEO) works.

6.     Should develop new strategies to bring traffic to your site.

7.     Should constantly promote, develop and market your blogs.

These are the factors that have to be strictly followed by all independent blog owners in order to be successful and distinctive.
