What bloggers should do is be PATIENT!Yes iammandyb;)Be patient woman!
Well bloggers should do a lot. There is a lot to do when you are a blogger. You have to keep up with your readers and fans. You have to keep up with social media. You have to write everyday or at least once or twice a week. Or you need to find guestwriters who help you make with mroe content.
Blogging is a long term process. Your content takes time to rank in Google. People have to find your blog. You can speed up the marketing process, but you won’t have millions of visitors in just 1 year. A lot of bloggers like Chiara Ferragni and Huda Kattan have their blog for 10 years now and now they have more then 1 million unique visitors a month. Their blogs are famous, they are famous and now they make a lot of money with their blog. But this takes time. Their blogs became brands with products. They sell products now.
On average, it takes 2-4 years to build a successful blog. After 2 years, you should have enough content and a large enough audience to begin experimenting with different monetization methods. Methods like premium advertisers, affiliate marketing and sponsored content.
This is what Google says and some articles. To be honest I think 5 or 6 years is the time you need to be really have a successful blog. and 8 till 10 years for a million dollar brand.
But also this depends on who you are. Are you already famous? An influencer on the gram starting a blog? A music artist starting a music blog? Do you already have fans like Kourtney Kardashian who started the lifestyle blog Poosh in 2019? She was already very famous so she already has the readers. NOw after 3 years only she has a million readers a month. But she does not use advertising. She promotes product and makes a sell out of that.
When your already a celebrity it will take less time to be successful with your blog/lifestyle brand.
Iammandyb is 1 years old now. Its still a newbie brand/blog. I don’t make much money with this blog yet. It does have 5000 unique visitors already within 6 months so this is great. but 1 million visitors? hell no, we keep going! Talking in 10 years again;)No just kidding. I keep you updated with my blogging journey. Once I am a fulltime blogger I will let you know.
I would also love to find someone who sees the potential and want to built this to a million dollar blog with a shop with edgy products. Like a real brand.
No make-up line, but an edgy/limited edition fashionline with edgy designed items. Jeffrey Campbells and Dolls Skill are my inspiration.
Iammandyb is more then a blog, its a brand. For the rebels, different ones, outsiders, edgy ones, gothic ones, trendsetters and goaldiggers.
