Now, first thing first, it’s actually a very tricky or rather complicated thing to answer how long does a blog takes to make you 500$ per month. Umm…not so complicated though. It depends on you and your work ethic.
You know there are several factors that will decide how much time it may need to get that results.
Now keep aside those factors I will bring those points in a short while for discussion but first, we need to know how long should we wait to get the expected results.
how long does it take to make money from blogging
If you want me to answer this clearly then I would tell at least 6 months to 1 year. Now again it all depends on you.
You can hit the money ball rolling a lot sooner for example within 6-8 months considering you are giving 40hr/week to your blog following a proper strategy like posting daily basis or posting at least 8-12 posts per month etc.
Now let’s face it some of the bloggers don’t even hit that success sooner or even for a lifetime and they quit. For example. when I had started working on my other blog (a lifestyle blog) it took a hell of a time almost 2 years.
Therefore it is always good to give time and have patience if you really want to make money from your blog.
It’s not something you start working on today and expect to make money from the next day, week, or in a month.
How to make money fast from blogging
Now I’m going to tell you how you can make money from blogging a lot faster than you think.
1. online consulting
If you wanna monetize your blog a lot sooner with the very minimum traffic you hit every month then this must be a good way to go.
Let say you have blogged about personal finance then you are very capable of sharing your knowledge with your potential clients that you meet through your blog for one on one consulting and guess what boom.. you already start making money without making that much effort other than giving your valuable advice on that topic.
This is an excellent way to make money online from blogging.
2. Affiliate marketing
Another most popular way to make money online especially from your blog is doing affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is already famous and it’s booming every month and years goes by.
The only thing that you have to do is just promoting products on your own platform (here on your blog) that other businesses own. You make money through commission whenever you help businesses to generate sales from your blogging site.
There are many notable and popular affiliate networks available to join and start making money at no cost.
3.Selling digital products
This is one of the easiest and fastest methods to make money from your blog in no time.
All you have to do is creating digital products like blogging or landing page templates, data or excel sheet notes and templates, ebooks related to your niche, and creating an online course to sell on your blogging site.
and guess what!! you are already on your way to generate money from your blog having the least amount of traffic.
4. Paid sponsored post
Another fastest but not so fast (considering you hit the least amount of traffic to attract brands so they can be convinced to give you the deal of writing sponsored posts) way to make money from blogging is writing sponsored posts.
Since you want to make money a lot faster from your blog then you need to work more like reaching out to brands or small business owners doing research online who are probably interested to work with you because you want to make money and they want sales or brand promotion.
Now it totally depends on you how much you want to charge for writing one paid post. But consider asking a reasonable asking price don’t go greedy all at once.
Why it takes time to make money from blogging

It could be not posting quality pieces of content to attract your potential readers. what I mean here is you just post thin content or copied content.
