How your blog can make money passively?

If your blog is getting 1000 daily unique visitors, your blog is doing well and should be pretty popular. But If you are a beginner then don’t worry you need a proper Roadmap – Remember, we all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than doing nothing at all. It’s all about mind, you can turn your passion into a successful online business. 

Let’s talk numbers

The estimates provided below is to give you ballpark figure about the earning potential of blogging and clearly this revenue model might change as changing figures and facts.

Your blog views daily – 1000

Ad revenue:

Ads placed in the blog – 4

Total number of ad impressions – 4 x 1000 = 4000 / day

CPR-Cost per Mill (Earning for 1000 impressions) – 4$ (This is based on niche and country your traffic coming from, I am taking an average earning it can be high as much as $25 or low as $1)

Daily average earning – (4000/1000) x 4 = $16 / day

Monthly income = 30 x 16 = $480

Above estimated value is based on Google AdSense earnings, many other ad networks like and Infolinks pay way more high than Google Adsense.

You might be getting some clicks on these ads, the above figure also include the 1% to 2% click through rate as well. Revenue from ad clicks are negligible to none in most cases.

Affiliate Marketing Revenue:

It is one of the popular ways of earning from blog. If you do it the right way this method alone will be enough to get $1000+ monthly.

Generally 1% to 2% of people click on your affiliate link and 10% of these visitors may finish purchasing from your affiliate link.

Daily conversion -1000 x 1/100 = 10 affiliate clicks

Finished purchase – 10 x 10/100 = 1 purchases

Let’s say your affiliate earning is – $20

Your daily income from affiliate – 20 x 1 = $20

Monthly affiliate revenue – 20 * 30 = $600 – $1200 (if 2% of users click on your affiliate link)

Taking average = $900

Selling own Product or Courses Revenue:

Selling online courses or products can change your Blogging game. It is the most lucrative way to earn passive income with your blog. And that’s how those bloggers make $10+ passively with their blogs.

Your Product Your Price but don’t be greedy. Set Price that are affordable to your audience.

Let’s say you’re selling valuable online course that is targeting your audience.

Your Online Course Value = $200

Initially within a month 15 Users end up purchasing your course.  

Selling Online course Revenue – 200*15 = $3000

Now let’s imagine you are selling an ebook as well through your blog.

Ebook Price = $35

You got 20 people to buy your ebook

Selling ebook revenue – 20*35 = $700

Total Revenue potential / Month = 480 + 900 + 3000 + 700 = $5080 with 1000 daily unique visitors.

You can earn $5000/month with thousand unique visitors daily passively and this is a BIG DEAL!!
