How to Start a Blog That Generates $3817 a Month

Something big has been happening in the world of work. How is it possible that so many people, from all walks of life and all ages, are creating blogs and entire businesses online?

Can blobs of text, blended with a series of images really possess superpowers?

And, honestly, how many people want to read the scattered thoughts of an average person like you or me?

This blog you’re reading gets over 2,436,112 unique visitors a year and generates well over a million dollars a year in revenue. Just look at my revenue stats for a 30 day period:

$381,772 a month is a lot of money… especially for a blog. Now you aren’t going to generate that much money, but it is realistic for you to make 1/100th of what I am making.

Today I’d like to give you every single step that you need to follow to create a blog, growing it AND learning how to monetize it in just 47 minutes.

Step 1. Unleash ideas within you

If you want to create a blog, you don’t need a revolutionary idea. But, your blog should be focused on something specific.

Remember that no idea, no matter how good, is truly unique.

But, you have unique experiences. You have a distinct voice. And, you probably have a vibrant personality that will attract others like your family and friends.

When it comes to choosing your blog’s niche, there are 2 key questions to ask yourself.

1. Do I enjoy learning about this topic?

If you don’t love the topic, it’ll show in your writing. You shouldn’t even start a blog if you don’t love what you’re blogging about.

Whatever topic you pick, you need to love it, and naturally curious about it.  If not, you’ll run out of ideas quickly. Most importantly, you won’t be able to consistently create content that will build your audience.

If you are still lost, think about what your family and friends come to you for when seeking advice? It might be fitness, recipes or relationship advice. You know best.

2. Are there others who are interested in the same things?

You might feel like the only 23-year-old who’s obsessed with knitting. But, there are others out there.

Do a quick Google search and you’ll find 539,000 results aimed at people just like you.

You might be wondering if your idea is too quirky. Or, maybe it’s too broad?

If you want to start a travel blog, stay away from generic words like “travel.” Choose a more specific topic, like “backpacking.”

I can give you a million examples, but it’s better if I show you.

Enter a keyword below and you’ll have a data-backed answer right away.

Step 2: Name your blog and get web hosting

This is a fun and important step, because your blog name is your brand. It’s how you’ll be remembered. But, don’t overthink it.  The key is to take action and gain momentum.

When you’re starting a blog from scratch, you need two things.

The first is a domain name.  This is your blog’s name. For example, mine is neilpatel.com. Domain names will run you roughly $10/year. If you don’t find the right domain name, no worries you can still start a blog and change your name later.

The second is web hosting. Web hosting is a service that allows your blog to be accessed through the internet.

Without web hosting, your blog can’t be seen online. Without a domain name, your blog won’t have an address. The two are inseparable.

There are plenty of web hosting companies to choose from. Prices generally range from $3 – $1000/month.

If you’re just starting a new blog, you should use Bluehost. They are the biggest and most well-known hosting company and I worked out a deal with them where you can get started for just $2.95 a month (plus you will get a free domain).

To be honest, you really don’t need anything fancy at this stage. Once you hit over 25,000 unique visitors a month, you can consider upgrading, but Bluehost can scale with you.

And the cool part about this offer, which isn’t available to the public, is that you get $175 worth of freebies including free money to spend on Google and Bing ads, in addition to the free domain. Click here to get the Neil Patel Bluehost special.

When naming your blog, you may want to take these tips into consideration.

  • Choose a .com over others. They’re easier to remember.
  • Aim for 2-3 words. Unfortunately, most, if not all single word domains are taken.
  • Try to use a keyword that represents what your blog is about. This helps people quickly identify your blog’s niche and helps search engines distinguish what your blog is about.
  • Avoid using numbers and hyphens. They are difficult to remember.
  • Go for something memorable or catchy.
  • For personal brands, use your name or a variation of it.

Try the tool below and see if your domain name is available. If it’s unavailable, you’ll get some relevant suggestions.
