This was my first payout on Medium for my first week of republishing my content.
There’s one aspect of making money from your blog that isn’t talked about: the fact that most people quit when they see payouts like these.
After all, what can you buy with $9.68?
But there’s one important element that is often overlooked:
If you can earn even $1 by using a certain platform, selling a product or service, you can earn more.
A lot more.
You just need more readers, a more loyal audience, higher prices, a better product/service, more reviews/testimonials, a better sales pitch.
You can optimize the process, so you can earn more.
That’s why I am investing 4-5 hours every day on Medium. Publishing content, networking with other bloggers, the good stuff.
You see, the vast majority of bloggers want to earn real money from the start.
Well, it doesn’t work like that.
It took me some 60 days to earn my first $10 from Amazon Affiliates.
First month of blogging? Sold three e-books for a grand total of $1.05 before taxes. Six months later I was earning anywhere between 1, 500$ to $2, 000 by selling my e-books on Amazon.
First month of placing ads on my blog? $32.69. Second month? $452.94.
Blogging is a game of momentum. It’s a game of slowly building a portfolio of content, of building relationships with your readers.
Little by little, a little becomes a lot.
So my advice to you is this: do not let yourself be intimidated by the fact that you only earned $1 or $ 0.05.
Keep punching those damn keys, keep giving your best, and you will soon earn more.
Remember that payment from Medium?
Here’s how much I earned in April:
