Easy ways to make money online: Math

So, I went over the time that will be spent and thought I should do a post on views you need to make money. Because money is the goal of blogging for money. This is going to be another long post but it breaks down the simple math for you to see. The pay off is not fast unless you really work at it.

If you do one post a week for a year that is 52 posts a year.

If you plan to do 3 posts a week per year that is 156 posts a year or about 12 posts a month.

If you plan to do 5 posts a week that brings you to 260 posts a year.

7 posts a dys will bering you to 364 posts a year.

If you get crazy and post 2 times a day every day of the week, you would be posting 730 a year.
This adds up to a lot of posts but how much time would you be spending per year typing up the posts? Using that 20 minuet per post average from my last post you would be spending just over 17 hours a year for 52 posts. For a goal of posting twice a day for a year? Over 243 hours a year.

Even with all that in mind it will still take about a year before you see any real money. You have to build up an audience who will view and hopefully click on your ads.

Say if you get $0.20 per click (not an actual amount and very low)? With only 52 posts a year you probably will not be getting very many clicks unless they are very good posts. I got maybe one click my first year.

When posting once a week, if you get 5 views to each post the day you post it and then 3 views in between when you post that would be 416 views your first year.

With three posts a week per year with the same views that would be 1,248 views your first year.

With five posts a week per year with the same views that would be 2,080 views your first year.

 At one click every 200 views you are looking at between $0.40 - $2.08 for your first year. That doesn't sound like that huge check some sites post images of. What you would need would be more posts or more people viewing your posts.

Say you get a small following your second year. 10 people check your site every day you post in addition to the base 8 views from the prior year that would bump the numbers up to $0.94 - $4.68 which is more then double the first year.

Lets get a little more ambitious, say you have been inter mingling with other bloggers and their blogs. Posting comments and taking part in discussions. Maybe you even wrote a guest blog post for a new friend in the blog world. So in stead of having 10 new followers you have 100.

At 52 posts a year that jumps your views to 5,200 from just your followers. That is quite a jump from the first years estimate of 416. Switching to just follower views&clicks you would be getting $5.20 - $26 a year.

Now, lets assume that you are using that SEO and other methods of getting you name out into the web and that you wrote 20 guest posts for other blogs. Perhaps you met people in person and they posted about you and linked to your blog. Lets even go so far as to say the stars aligned and you are just winning at the internet your third year.

Say you now have 1,000 followers who check your blog every time you post. Say you also get 500 random views for each new post and 300 in between each post. Bringing your views to 46,800 - 468,000 per year. That is $46.80 - $468 per year at one click every 200 views.

However, if you are getting that many views you are starting to enter the realm of pay for every 1,000 views. If you got $0.20 for every 1,000 views then that would give you an additional $9.36 - $93.60 per year bumping your total to $56.16 - $561.60 per year.

Now this is when we start to have fun with totals because for now we have only been talking about static numbers. Let us move into the world of the 'what if' scenario.

What if you were able to get 100 new followers every time you posted? That would be between 5,200 - 15,600 people a year finding your blog. Bump that number to 1,000 new people every time you post and that would be between 52,000 and 260,000 people a year.

At 52,000 and 260,000 people a year viewing your blog would be 2,704,000 - 13,520,000 views a year or $2,704 - $13,520 with one click for every 200 people.

Now this is the money you were thinking of when you started blogging. This is the kind of money eveyone thinks about making by doing nothing but as you can see it does take a lot of work.

Odviously the more people you get to your site every day with make a huge impact on the amount that you earn.

The more you take part in the community the more people will see you and the more chances you will have for clicks.
