How much money can I make online?

I wrote blog about Making Money Online – my own experiences while struggling to make some money online – earlier this year. Since then I keep getting various questions (along with the traffic that I get to the post) so I thought I add a little more that may answer some of questions I get. You are welcome to ask any bloggy question in comment section here.

Empirical observations show that many people quickly set up a blog and start thinking about making money on the first day. How to get some money right now? They don’t care much about building or defining an online reputation and keep moving from one craze to another and also go with anything that comes to their way. That is very short term (or short sighted, if I may use the term) to say the least.

Many people ask me how much money they can make with blogging? [They demand specific answers in term of rupees and timings]. I don’t have an answer to that. Probably no one has. Not even gurus selling their books claiming to make money in specific time frame.

Best I can say is that there is a difference between those looking to make quick money and those looking to build a personal brand, repute and authority. The second category is willing to go a long way to train, learn and deliver before thinking of making money. They even forgo immediate gratification to achieve their goals of running a successful online blog.

I suggest you take blog only as a means. Yes, you can make money by using blog as a means. Have a long term plan. Build a powerful presence online by providing value to the readers. Let the people know what you know by sharing what you know and let them know what they can learn from you. Think (and plan) to make some reasonable money only after having done that.
