    last time i had a thread about blogging and making money. i am trying to clear my confusion and putting a clear goal actually. once i have a clear goal and its realistic i will start working on that, it makes me feel good, so try to help me make my goal realistic please. so let me come to the story i have 500 quality articles, i want to post all the article when i start my blog on the first day(the reason my readers will have something to read). then i want start to do alot of online marketing to promote my blog. after a week i want to post 1 article per day continuesly. now my question is

    1-can i make 1 000 USD just from advertisements in my blog? is that look possible/realistic i can achieve this within 2months? i have 500quality article, then daily will post 1article per day. can i reach 1thousand USD as steady income?

    2-next is a different question. is that true some people out there can do online marketing bring close to 1million traffic?

    please answer my 2questions also. thankx in advance!

    First of all, what are you going to blog about? This is very important as it affects conversion rates. By advertisements you mean PPC? Or sponsors? If your articles are about a niche topic, with little competition, you can earn $1000 a month with some marketing though I doubt you can achieve it in 2 months.
    The amount of traffic is important but doesn't make you any money unless it is of good quality. I strongly recommend you to try yourself as nobody can tell how much you will do with your 500 HQ articles by blogging them. You may earn $0 a month, $1000 or $10 000, there is no principle ruling out any of the possibilities. The only way to really know is to try.

    P.S.: Another way of monetizing your articles would be PMing me(or any other Blog on BAF) the titles and see if I'm interested to reach a business agreement with you.

    singam I agree with Daftblogger, no one can tell you for sure whether or not you will make that money, because there are two many variables involved. However, as others have shown it is possible to earn a lot of money from blogging, so why not give it a go? Put your best effort into it and work hard at it until you do achieve your income goal.

    affiliate products are also a good option to earn money.

    Is that a new site? If yes, it could take a lot of time and effort to earn that much.
    But it's a good goal. Having that goal makes you want to work more.

    Have you tried putting up Adsense on your blog?

    -the 500 articles are quality, can help solve people problem.
    -my website is about men self improvement, fashion, relationship, health issues for men, financial tips (all this category in one blog, its mens blog)

    why my 500quality article cannot make me earn 1000USD in third month?
    why i must put google adsence only, i want to get sponsors for my blog. i want to write 1 article per day. can i make 1000USD in 2nd month only from the advertisement revenue i make from the sponsors to advertise in my blog?

    Given that you already have the content singam, why don't you launch your blog, give it your best shot and find out by direct experience, whether or not you can make that kind of money?

    i agree with u fergal. i respect what u saying. but GekiDan saying "it could take a lot of time and effort to earn that much."
    so i am curious why he say so, thats all. because as i mention:

    -the 500 articles are quality, can help solve people problem.
    -my website is about men self improvement, fashion, relationship, health issues for men, financial tips (all this category in one blog, its mens blog)

    why my 500quality article cannot make me earn 1000USD in third month?
    why i must put google adsence only, i want to get sponsors for my blog. i want to write 1 article per day. now tell can i make 1000USD in 2nd month only from the advertisement revenue which i make from the sponsors to advertise in my blog?

    i was looking for this site moderator GekiDan's thoughts on this, why he said it will take alot of time...
    thats all fergal. anyway thankx for your help man. i appreciate that and have respects for you. i think i am becoming one of the many thread reader of this website nowdays

    I don't believe that anyone is saying that you can't make that money in your third month singam. However, there is a lot of competition online so the money is not going to come quickly and easily. It will require a lot of hard work to build, manage and promote the blog. Basically it will be a challenge and something well worth working towards, so we encourage you to go for it and make the best of the opportunity available to you.

    Again I don't believe that anyone said that. Google Adsense is a good advertising network to start out with. But of course you can sell advertising slots on your website directly to advertisers yourself, just like we do here on Business Advice Forum and just like GekiDan does on his own blog. Promoting affiliate products and services is another potential income source that you could look at, you might want to take a look at some affiliate networks such as Commission Junction.

    You could simply keep blogging non-stop in different platforms... Sure, tedious, but you can make it easier with the help of software programs... If your being smart and if you add some humor, you can in that way catch attention to your site. Then you can sell ad spaces... Then you could sell your services... And you could catch more customers and potential business partners... I would recommend as a publication, data syndication software, DatSyn - its a pretty good and qualitative software...

    See Ya!

    Yes its possible but it doesn't happen in 2months. Why? u gotta start posting stuff in discussion groups n forums of course all relevant and helpful stuff for others. then u can actually pay to post in advertising forums and gotta give out ur service on free trial to some clients n get them to write about ur service...either testimonials or blogs. You can then start approaching professional Online marketing guys who are actually responsible for posting great blogs on their own blog community (Skype, yahoo) and request them to write one for you.

    Other wise you sell some product on your blogger through online marketing with out any investment. Now a days you make a free website through word press.
