HOW TO MAKE MONEY BLOGGING in 2021 – $40,000/MO INCOME REPORT

Hello, hello, my mind is blown when I look
at my latest income report, I crossed the mark of forty thousand
dollars in one single month. It's the highest month so
far in my blogging business. But I decided to publish this income
report not only because it was the highest so far, but more so because the structure
of my income streams has changed quite a bit compared to my income
reports published last year.

And I hope that you will appreciate
the transparency of my video when I share all the details about the income sources
and what worked best for me this month. Hi, I'm Anastasia
of AnastasiaBlogger.com. And on this channel,
I share my online business tips on Thursdays and if you want to get more

for this month, a quick story for those of you who just followed me
online and don't know how. And when I started blogging,
it was in early 2017 when I bought my domain name and it took me
about one year to quit my day job. So the first year of blogging,
I was working full time and I was working on my blog in the evenings
and on my weekends. The traffic was growing very slow
in the first months because I was trying to be on all social media and I was just
mindlessly posting links to my new posts and I was hoping that someone
would find my pages.

I hope that Google also would also
help me to get found on Google. But Google is a long term game. I've only seen some traction on my blog
when I focused on Pinterest as a traffic source and it helped me get into media,
an ad management company. And yes, the first thousand of dollars a month on my blog was made mostly
because of display ads from MediaVine.

And after making lots of mistakes and learning along the way,
I can share with you a thing or two which hopefully will help you keep making
the same mistakes and will help you get your first thousands of dollars a month
with your blog way faster than I did. This is actually why I'm sharing my income
reports so that you can learn from them. I studied income reports of successful
bloggers when I was starting my journey. Yes, I really meant to say started not
just quickly look through them to see the total number in the end,
but I took each one of them as a lesson.

It was never discouraging for me to see that someone was making fifty times more
than I did with my blog at that time. It was always motivational and inspiring. So I hope that's what you
get from my income reports. If you find them useful,
then don't hesitate to like this video and you will let me know this way that I
should share more videos like this. Now let's dive into the numbers. So first display ads in November. I made three thousand and fifty four dollars with two of my blogs
with Mediavine ads only. I can see there my display ads income relatively low for the amount
of traffic that I get. But there is a reason for this
on my main blog, AnastasiaBlogger.com.

On the large part of my content,
the display ads are turned off. It's actually what people
ask me about very often. If you have display ads on your site, can you control on which pages you want
to show the ads and where you want to disable them to sell your affiliate
products or your own products? The answer is yes. You totally can turn off display ads,
even on individual pages. That's what I did on all my posts related to blogging, tips and Pinterest
marketing on all of them. I'm either promoting a few products or selling my own course
so it doesn't make sense to show ads and send traffic away from these
pages for just a few cents. And now you know that when I started my blog, I mostly relied
on Mediavine ads for income. But over time I've been intentionally decreasing the amount of ads on my blog
because I have built additional monetization methods that can pay me
more for each visit there on my site.

I will also mention it here because
it's related to display ads. So I made eleven hundred dollars
with YouTube ads on my channel. This one I consider a passive income
stream for a couple of reasons. The first is because with the baby
at home, I haven't been posting videos every single week like I used
to do before having a baby. But my income from YouTube ads is
still coming in from my old videos. And of course, if I abandoned my channel completely, the views and the ad
income would slowly be decreasing. But it's great to know that I can take a break from making videos
for a month or so if I need to.

And YouTube would still be sending
me my ad income for that month. That's truly passive, isn't it? The second reason why I consider this YouTube ad in competitive is because I
would have to create my videos anyway because I'm not making them
for the sake of video ads. You can imagine that YouTube is the best platform to establish yourself
as an expert in any topic. And people love learning
from video content nowadays. So YouTube does help me generate a lot more income with my one on one services
and with my course about Pinterest marketing and the advertising income
from YouTube is just a great bonus that I get together with the
growth of my channel. By the way, I just want to make a side
note here for the full disclosure. When you hear from bloggers about their income reports, that's not how much money
they will get eventually in their bank account and definitely they will not get
it in the same month when the income report is made, because most of their
income will only be actually paid by partners and affiliate companies
with a 30 or 60 days of delay.

Also, there are some expenses. I already mentioned that my business
expenses are very low and I rarely test some ads on Google and on
Pinterest on small budgets. Other than that, business expenses are
mostly the tools that I use, like email provider hosting some
WordPress, plugins and such. I think I might make a detailed video
sometime in the future, focused specifically on my expenses
that I have to run this online business. But even after the expenses, of course, like any other business, I have
to pay taxes and I live in Portugal. I have here an LLC company and in total for taxes, I'm paying about 43 percent
of everything that's left after expenses. And I realized that it could be higher
or even lower in other countries.

So don't take the 43
percent as a reference. If you want to know how much you would pay
in your country, you can start by Googling this information
or maybe talk to an accountant. Now, moving to the next monetization method, it's a solid income
as an affiliate of various tools and programs that help you
build your online business. I made eight thousand nine hundred
and twenty dollars in total this month. Some of the products that I recommended frequently on my blog, you already know,
for example, I recommend beginner bloggers to start with blog post hosting provider
as they offer a really affordable pricing, 24 hour support through
chat and free domain. And they provided a special
pricing for my audience. So you will find the link to this exclusive deal in the description
below this video. See what I just did? This is affiliate marketing an action. I make money recommending services
and products that worked well for me and my audience gets the best
deals through my links.

And to be completely honest with you,
for quite a long time I wasn't using affiliate marketing to the maximum
capacity on my blog. I was so focused on talking about
Pinterest and building my own product and marketing channels for it that I
completely ignored the huge opportunities that are out there
with affiliate marketing. I'm just starting to look around
and to my surprise, there are actually a lot of amazing
products which I personally used or learned from,
and I could recommend them to my audience because they helped me in my online
business, the next income source where my ebooks and principles that I
sell on both of my sites.

I made two hundred sixty
seven dollars this month. With this monetization method,
I want to clarify that the e-books are in the price range from seven
to about twenty dollars on average. And the main way I actually sell them is by placing Pop-Up banners and links
to them inside my content pages. So I don't run any ads for this products. No promotions, no tripwire smart funnels,
no email marketing. It's completely passive money that gets into my bank account every month from the
ebooks that I had to create only once. And they also are very low maintenance,
meaning to sell them. I have just one business expense. It's about fifteen dollars a month for SendOwl payment processor and they
don't take any of my time for support because the customers just download
those files automatically. The next income source was
my one on one services. I'm still providing just one type of one
on one services related to Pinterest its account audit with one
hour of coaching call. And I made a thousand one hundred
and forty one dollars this past month with the services I used to provide
Pinterest management services in the past.

And although businesses are ready to pay
me a premium price for my services, I had to stop doing this because I still
had 24 hours in a day and it was hard to scale Pinterest management
services beyond my working hours. I could probably open like a Pinterest
management agency and I could hire people to work for me full time
on my client's accounts. But it's just not my thing.

I don't like scaling through,
increasing the team so much and hiring people and managing people
to work in the remote team. It's a job in itself and I don't see
myself doing this kind of stuff. So I found another way to scale
my business while still keeping business expensive low and still
having a really small team. I packaged my Pinterest experience
and knowledge into an online course. Basically, who works on all the course
content and who provides support to students and clients is just yours
truly and who helps me create nicely designed lending pages and who helps
me with post-production. Of all my videos is my husband. He's behind the camera this
very moment, by the way. Yes, really, we are a very small team
and this month the course generated twenty six thousand eight
hundred seventy dollars.

Of course, the Black Friday
contributed to this. I was selling the course with a big
discount and a lot of people were waiting for Black Friday, ready with their
credit card to buy things on sale. Actually, I think this year a lot more people realize the advantages
of online education. And it's a great opportunity for everyone
who has been teaching anything in the offline world
to switch to online courses. And in general, a lot of people have some
kind of knowledge, either professional skills or even
something related to their hobbies, which could be packaged
into an online course.

Not so long ago, I convinced my husband
to create his own online course. He has been working for over a decade in the area of 3D art
and architectural visualization. So he started with zero email subscribers
on his list and in the first month selling his scores at the EarlyBird price of just
forty seven dollars, he made over one thousand two
hundred dollars with his course. He's been consistently making, on average,
about five thousand dollars with this course at the price point
of about a hundred dollars.

And last month, with a Black Friday sale, he managed to hit ten thousand
dollars in core sales. Of course, he's using the same strategy
that I tried and tested on my course. And since I've seen it works in completely different markets,
I have created a program that teaches people with all kinds of expertise how
to create and sell courses online. Using my evergreen risk
free and stress free model. You can check out the program if
you open that link in the info. I can and in the description
below the video. Now, if you ask me what is the fastest
path to making a living with your website generally in any niche, I will tell
you the recipe is really that simple.

First, put quality content out there. Don't generate bad content because without
you there is already a lot a lot of garbage on the Internet and people are
desperately looking for quality content. If you put out something of a great quality, people will love you just for
this and will share your stuff for free. Second, decide which platform you
will focus on initially for traffic. My personal top list is as follows
Pinterest Google CEO and YouTube. It can be something else
or in a different order. It depends on your niche. And the third thing, you need to start looking for great
products with generous commissions in your niche, which you could recommend
to your audience as an affiliate. And when you get to a more advanced level,
then think of your own product. Maybe it will be an ebook or even
a fancy online course with videos. Just never think that any
of this is too hard.

If that's what you want to do and you want
to learn about, you will figure it out either on your own or through some
training and courses from other people. I guess this is quite
a long video for now. I hope it was helpful. And if so, then don't hesitate to click
on the like button so that YouTube learns better which kind of content
you like to see more. And I will leave you a few other videos on my channel that will help you
get your online business started. And I will see you in the next videos..

Hello-hello! My mind is blown when I look at my latest income report. I crossed the mark of $40,000 in one month! It’s the highest month so far in my blogging business. But I decided to publish this income report not only because it was the highest so far but more so because the structure of my income streams has chanced quite a bit compared to my income reports published last year. I hope you will appreciate the transparency of my video when I share all the details about the income sources and what worked best for me this month.

1. Display ads.

In November I made $3054 with two of my blogs just with Mediavine ads. I consider my display ads income relatively low for the amount of traffic I get but there is a reason for this. On my older blog anastasiablogger.com on a large part of my content the display ads are turned off.
It’s actually what people ask me about quite often. If you have display ads on your site, can you control on which pages you want to show the ads and where you want to sell affiliate products or your own products? The answer is YES – you totally can turn off display ads even on individual pages. That’s what I did on all my posts with blogging tips and Pinterest marketing tips. On all of them I am either promoting affiliate products or selling my own course. So it doesn’t make sense to show ads and send my traffic away from these pages for a few cents.

Now you know that when I started my blog, I mostly relied on Mediavine ads for income but over the time, I’ve been intentionally decreasing the amount of ads on my blog because I’ve built additional monetization methods that can pay me more for each visitor on my site.

I will also mention it here because it’s related to display ads – I made $1100 with Youtube ads on my channel. This one I consider a passive income stream for a couple of reasons. The first is because with the baby at home, I haven’t been posting videos every single week like I used to before having a baby. But my income from Youtube ads is still coming in from my old videos. Of course, if I abandoned my channel completely, the views and ad income would be slowly decreasing. But it’s great to know I can take a break from making new videos for a month if I need to, and Youtube would be still sending me my ad income for that month. That’s truly passive, isn’t it? 

The second reason why I consider this Youtube ad income passive is because I would create my videos anyway. I’m not making them for the sake of video ads.
You can imagine that Youtube is the best platform to establish yourself as an expert in any topic, people love learning from video content nowadays. So Youtube does help me generate a lot more income with my 1:1 services and with my course about Pinterest marketing. And the advertising income from Youtube is just a great bonus that I get together with the growth of my channel.
