Just starting out.....ahhhhh!

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have to admit.  This blogging world is overwhelming.  I have no clue where to start.  I literally need a checklist for “Day 1”, “Day 2”, etc.    How long on average would you say it takes from Start to Dollar?  Or is that even possible to ask?   Any starting info would help.

How long on average would you say it takes from Start to Dollar?

That is a very difficult question to answer because there are so many factors.   Things that can affect that answer are:

  • Do you have a good Niche
  • Frequency of content delivered
  • Level of external involvement in Social Media/Advertising
  • Affiliate Marketing involvement
  • Do you have a digital product? Online courses?
  • Are you building an email list?

And one of the biggest issues, do you have the staying power?  Most bloggers get all psyched in the beginning, but end up quitting because they are not making thousands of dollars in the first 3-6 months.   I've seen some of the most successful bloggers report only making $12 for the first year, some have even reported a loss after two years, but stayed in the game.

You must truly make sure you are first doing this because you love doing this.  If you were to do this and know you were not going to make money, would you still do it?  That's a tough question, but if simply blogging is your motivation, then you will most likely succeed.  If you are doing this for the all mighty dollar only, then you will be tested.

In regards to your first comment:

Your best bet is to be as organized as possible.  I personally use Airtable to keep track of everything I do.  It gives me one central location to look at, organize and plan my work.  I'll try to post some information on that in the blog one day. 

But remember, if you fail to plan, plan of failing.   Good luck and let me know if I can be of any assistance.
