Lots of bloggers are making hundreds of dollars from their blog every single day.

Of course this is how they make a living from their blogs online.

Some new bloggers set a goal of making their first $100 from their blog within a 6 month period. Some have accomplished, some came close and others failed to make a single dime.

I have made more than $100 from this blog. In fact, I made more than $200 in one week just be selling advertisements on this blog and doing services as well.

[box]In this article I will give you some tips and tricks on how you can make your first $100 from your blog.[/box]

[box]You Need Traffic To Make Money[/box]

One of the reasons why some bloggers fail to make money from their blog is because they have no traffic.

Without blog traffic then you will fail to make money from your blog.

I am not just talking about a few daily visitors. I am talking over 1,000 visitors per day and lots of page views.

If you have no one visiting your blog, how will your PPC ads get clicked? Who will purchase from your affiliate link? Who will buy the advertise here spot on your blog?

Now you see the reason why you need traffic? And lots of it.

The more traffic you have then the more money you will be making from your blog. You just have to know some strategies that will work for your blog which is effective in making money.

Now that you know that traffic is needed to make money, you may be wondering: how do I get traffic to my blog?

Here is how to get traffic to your blog

For the past few months I have been blogging about how you can increase your blog traffic so I won’t go into much details on this section. (I will leave links to some of these articles below)

Guest Posting – This is one of the best ways to get traffic to your blog. If you do guest posting then this can get your blog lots of exposure to incoming traffic. You need to write high quality articles and leave your links in the article while writing. Also you can get lots of traffic if you write for a blog that has more traffic than yours. (Great way to build backlinks as well)

Blog Commenting – This is also another great way to get traffic to your blog. Blog commenting has been proven over and over in getting targeted traffic to a blog. You have to leave links to your blog and also leave comments with value.

Also look for blogs that has the Comment Luv installed. This way you can leave a link to one of your latest articles.

Mailing List – Starting a mailing can help you to get traffic to your blog. This is because the people who visit your blog who are truly interested in your content will want to subscribe to your blog. Sending them an email about new blog posts will make them want to come to your blog and read what you have written.

Starting a mailing list can also help to make money online.

Forum Posting – Forums are often filled with people participating in discussions. You can also join in the discussion, just be sure that this forum is related to your blog niche.

When posting in the forum go your signature settings and add your blog link to your signature. Whenever you make a post on the forum then your link would appear there. So the more post you make then the more your link will be shown on the forum.

Write Articles With SEO – When writing your articles you should always remember to optimize it for search engine results. This is a great way to get targeted traffic and also exposure on some major search engines.

Social Media & Social Networking – I have always loved using social media sites for getting traffic to my blog. This is quite simple to do. I use sites like Twitter, Facebook and a few others. I share my links to my followers and also do the same. This helps to build relationships and helps to build traffic as well.

Here are some articles to help you get more traffic

[box]How To Make The First $100[/box]

There are tons of ways that you can make your first $100 from your blog.

As I mentioned in the first section above, you need traffic. Now that you have traffic on your blog then you are ready to make some money.

Sell Your Own Products

This is one of the best ways to make your first $100 (or even more) on your blog.

If you have followed the tips above that I mentioned on getting traffic to your blog then these methods can also help to establish you and your blog to be a great brand. Along with writing great contents then you can prove to be a blogger that knows what he/she is doing.

Take for instance you are a coder, you can make an awesome WordPress plugin or a tool that bloggers can use to make their blog better and sell this plugin.

If you are an awesome writer then you can make an ebook and sell it as well.

You don’t have to put your all into making your products for sale. You just have to make sure it is simple yet effective to the persons who use it. After making your product you can contact top bloggers and share your product with them and ask them to write a positive review about it.

Once word is out that your product is worth having then its time for you to sell and make money from it.

Here is how you are going to actually make money from your product.

You are going to sell your product at a cheap price. Yes, cheap as in $10.

If you can get 10 people to purchase your product then you have already made your $100 from your blog. As simple as that.

10 buyers X $10 product = $100

Depending on the price that you want to set for your product, once there is a buzz around your product then you can make the $100 in no time.

For example:
20 buyers X $5 product = $100
5 buyers X $25 product = $100

 So this depends on the amount of work you have put into the product, the features of the product and the buzz around the product then you can make that $100 in no time.

Pay Per Click Advertisements

This is also another way of making your first $100 from your blog.

This method may take longer because of the amount of money paid out per click and also the amount of traffic that your blog has.

If you are going to use the pay per click method for making your first $100 from your blog then you have to be sure that your blog has lots of traffic for this to work.

The more traffic that you have then the chances of your ads getting clicked will be higher.

We also have to remember that our blog visitors don’t come to our blogs to click on our ads, but to gain some knowledge from what we have posted on our blog. So this is where great optimization is needed in order to get some clicks.

 If you are using Google Adsense as a your choice of PPC advertising, then you have to make sure use sizes that fits your blog. You have to blend your Google Adsense unit with the color of your background and also the links on your blog. This will help to maximize the chances of getting more clicks.

It is recommended that you place no more than 3 Adsense units per page. Placing Google Adsense units in your content is very effective in getting clicks as well.

Remember that in order for pay per clicks to work well for you then you need to have lots of traffic on your blog.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the most effective ways in making money from a blog. Pro bloggers often use this method when making money from their blog and they make thousands per month doing this.

Affiliate marketing is a way in which you sell a product or service for someone and they pay for for each sale that is made. In other words you get a commission for each sale.

When doing affiliate marketing you normally sign up for the product or service that you want to market, you place links or banners on your blog and whenever a sale is made then you get paid.

But the trick to making your first $100 from your blog doing affiliate marketing is very simple.

When you sign up for products that you want to promote then you have to make sure that this product is related to your blog’s niche. You want to make sure that this product will be of some benefit to the persons who will be using it.

It would be also great if you have a copy of the product so that you can get a bird’s eye view of it and see how it works. You can then write a review about this product, tell your blog visitors how wonderful this product is and how it has helped you to become a better blogger or how it helped you to blog better.

When you do this then you can point to the product using your affiliate link.

Depending on how you write your review will determine if your blog visitors will purchase this product from your affiliate link or not. So always be sure to write a great review so that you can make sales for your affiliate links.


 I remember doing services for a new blogger and making $105.

Want to know how I did this?

I got an email from this person wanting to start his own blog and he liked how I customized my blog. He was interested in learning more from me.

In my services I offered to set up a new WordPress blog, install a premium theme, install plugins, gave support when needed and also gave blogging tips.

For this service I charged $55 for the month.

This person was a new blogger so he needed hosting as well. So I recommended him to Hostgator using my affiliate link.

Hostgator paid me $50 for referring a new customer to their services.

So in total I got $105 for doing services.

$55 for my services + $50 Hostgator commission = $105

That was pretty simple for me making $105. Plus I was setting up a new blog, something that I loved to do.

Use Fiverr To Make Money

So as of lately, I have been using Fiverr to make money on my blog.

I post jobs there, set my price and if people are interested in my gigs they make a purchase.

After completing the job then I update the order and deliver my work. Payments are made through Paypal.

What makes it challenging to make money on Fiverr is because there are tons of people selling their services there.

But don’t get discouraged. Once you can compete with the prices and be active on Fiverr then you will make lots of money from it.

Sponsored Blog Posts

Another popular way to make money from your blog is to sell sponsored posts on your blog.

With this money making method you get to keep 100% of the profit.

If you have lots of traffic then all you have to do is sit back and wait for an email with someone asking to post on your blog.

You set your price and always remember to bargain for more or a price comfortable to you.

There are some websites out there as well that you can use to sell sponsored posts on your blog.

Here are a few below:

Sell Advertisements

Selling advertisements on your blog is a great way to make your first $100 from your blog.

You need traffic as well in order to do so.

Advertisers want to place their ads on blogs that has lots of traffic and they will pay even more than $100 for a single ad spot.

When selling advertisements on your blog, just be sure that your ads are in plain view for advertisers to see it. Don’t place ads where people wouldn’t want to advertise.

Placing ad spots for sale above the fold can also help in selling advertisements spots on your blog. Above the fold means the section of a website or blog that is shown without the person having to scroll.

Size is also a factor to consider when selling advertisement space on your blog.

In Conclusion…

When making your first $100 from your blog just remember that traffic is needed.

Each blog makes money in a different way. So you have to also develop strategies that will work for your blog when it comes to making money.

What other ways is there that you can make your first $100 from your blog?

    These are valuable pointers. Amazon and Adsense are additionally acceptable wellsprings of income, similarly Infolinks and Chitika. Without a doubt you need a SEO boosted title and post to produce traffic to your blog. 1-2% watchword thickness is the perfect rate. a debt of gratitude is in order for giving all important data.

    Hi Kharim,

    In the initial phase of blogging it is really hard to make the first $100. I believe it is only the continuous effort, delivering high quality content and link building to high authority sites that can bring the desired results. Once you got famous in the blogging world than it is really not a tough task to earn $100/month.

    Way back in 2008, it took 4 months to make my first $100(minimum Adsense threshold). I learned the basics of blogging in those days.
    My intention was not to make money at that time, I just wanted to get audience for my creative work. Till now I do not run behind monetization, I invest most of my time on creating content, and leave the rest on Google.



    THat was an awesome article Kharim.Till now I did not earn any bucks from blogging but I hope soon earn some money like you.And I have followed many of your articles which really helped me.And out of the ways you have mentioned in this article I think OFFERING SERVICES and AFFILIATE MARKETING are the most important.

    Pay per install programs are getting popular, $100 can be made pretty quickly because you get around $1 per install for US traffic.

    My first $100 was made with Adsense to be frank, so happy I was when I got them, is that first feeling you know what I’m talking Karim right?

    • Reply

      Hey Daniel,

      I know the first feeling of making that money pal. I made my first $100 by winning a guest blogging contest.

      Pay per install is awesome. I have done it already and works pretty well in getting paid.

    Having your own product is a great way to keep all of the revenue. However, I make pretty good with affiliate marketing, and surprisingly, a lot on CPC advertising as well.

    But you’re right. You need traffic to make money. This is where some bloggers tend to fail.

    Love you for the title – that $100!

    A new blogger is always confused without a proper route. You are correct many of them fail and some are close to that $100 milestone. And I agree with Nishant, yes that $100 is very important to every new blogger. It kind of proves that blogging earns and he/she is more dedicated to work.

    What a great article. Thank you. Many bloggers and webmasters became depressed or desperate because making the fist 100$ takes so much time for them.

      Without traffic then all your efforts in making money will be done without any success.

    When you select the right product I think affiliate marketing might still be one of the ‘quickest’ ways to make steady income online. I know programs like Adsense are really popular too but from what I hear you had to put in a lot more work and they are a lot more to do with luck than craftful marketing, is that right?

      If you have a great blog audience then affiliate marketing can be your top source of income. You can market to them and can be sure that you will make some money.

    Thank you for all of the useful information.. Man I am hoping this latest blog works out. I have never really made anything from them. But I am going to keep trying. I am overseas, in Thailand, so I think it is going to be too much trouble to sell products and ship them out.. Any ideas on how I can make that first hundred fast?

    Where I live is cheap, and a little bit of money goes a long way.

    • Reply

      Hey Isamu,

      I want to thank you first of all for stopping by to read my article and to also leave a comment.

      If you are going to do shipping of products then you have to consider the type of products you are selling. Are people really interested in buying these products?

      Plus you have to consider who will be taking care of the shipping.

      I would say that it would be much easier to sell digital products online. That would be a much easier route to making your first $100.

      What is your blog about?

    Hi Kharim,
    You are back with a bang mate.To make money traffic should always be there on the blog unless there is no use of making it and get things work.

    Selling own products and having giveaways is the best choice to get more money with blogging.

      Hey Aditya,

      Glad to see you here mate!

      Well you know, I’m always trying my very best to post great articles for the world to read.

      You are right and thanks for agreeing with me that traffic is very important for a blog if the owner wants to make money from it. Selling a product that you have created is a great way to go.

      I have made two plugins. Was thinking of selling them but not sure as yet.

      Thanks for the comment pal.

      • Aditya


        Hi Kharim,
        I think write a post about it and see reviews of people.Tell them about the features of the plugin.And how it can be useful.Then after having reviews you can decide whether to sell them or not.Or when to sell them.

        • Reply

          Well my plugin is not really a high classed thing.

          If you notice below each blog post you will see a subscription box for people who want to subscribe to my blog after reading my blog post.

          This plugin adds this box there. The box color can be changed, the heading can be edited, the border colors can be changed, a mini mode or big mode is available, you can add some text and also the button text can be changed.

          Nothing really big, but trying my little thing.

          If you want a comment I can give one to you for free.

            Nothing can make a huge impact on the market unless it is exposed at first everything is just like a small world but when people starts living in your dreams the world gets bigger.
            So don’t have fear in letting other know about what you got.

    Good post, you have defined how to get the most important thing in blogging which is traffic and how to make your first income. There is no doubt that guest blogging is a great way to expose your blog to others and get traffic. I think the most easy way to make money is adsense or similar programmes but then you need that wanted traffic. Once established, bloggers can always branch out to affiliate marketing and then into own products.

      Hey again Shalu,

      With Google Adsense you need lots of targeted traffic on your blog for this to work well. This is because Google Adsense will display content related ads on your blog. So having people on your blog who are really interedted in your content will get you more clicks on your Google Adsense ads.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Making 100$ seems very easy now.

    Prior to make or think about money we need to think AM I PROVIDING ANYTHING NEW?

    If you answer it YES then 100$ is your first step to get millions 🙂

      You have to be providing fresh contents or making a fresh product for your blog visitors who can become customers.

    Hi Kharim,

    Making my first 100$ was never that easy. As you said, many failed in earning at least a dollar at the beginning of launching their blogs. It needs some serious planning and experience to achieve the objective. Selling your own products is one of the proven ideas to making money on this platform.


    • Reply

      Making my first $100 wasn’t really hard. This is because I knew how to approach the money making process of a blog.

      Selling your own products is always a win win situation. You just have to be sure that the product is worth having.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Hi Kharim! I have learned so much by reading your blog. It always amazes me how much there is to learn on your every post. Making money online is not a simple thing on first timer. It takes time and effort and perseverance.
    You did a great job!

      Hey Becca,

      Thanks for reading my article. I always do my best in providing quality stuff for my blog readers.

      First timers may find it very hard. But with my tips they can have it a bit more easier.

    Great article…The first $100 matters the most.Many lose it halfway and quit.It requires some dedication to make money online.

    • Reply

      I must strongly agree with you on that point.

      You have to become dedicated in order to make money from your blog.

      Getting traffic is very hard. But once you master the ways to get traffic to your blog then the money will come much easier.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Hey bro, you rightly pointed it out. Traffic is the main thing you need. If you have 500+ a day to your blog, it will be relatively easy to develop strategies and generate more money daily.

    • Reply

      Yes I must agree with you.

      500+ visitors per day is all it takes to make your first $100. I have already done this and if I can do it then everybody can do it.

      Thanks for the comment.

    I have been in blogging for sometime. But still haven’t earned anything. So for a person like me, this post is just fantastic. And, possibly right now I should be concentrating on the first part of this post, i.e. to generate traffic which is the first step to generate income 🙂

    • Reply

      Yep! You are right. You should be working on getting traffic.

      The more traffic that you have then the more possibilities that you can make money from your blog.

      Thanks for the comment and all the best in your blogging.

    Traffic is the main ingredient for making money from your blog, without it you might as well sit on the beech and do nothing. The traffic methods you have suggested is top notch and out of them guest posting is a good one. Kharim please suggest a way to make $100 a day from your blog, that’s the next step, what do you say?

      Hello Shalu,

      I love guest posting as well because it tends to pull in more traffic than the other methods that I had mentioned.

      Wow!!! Making $100 a day from your blog is gonna take awhile. Those are the things that the pro bloggers are now doing. I hope I get to the level of a pro blogger some day soon.

    The more you create the more money you make. Create posts, articles, videos, helpful comments, webinars and ebooks. Give freely to make money from blogging. Cut the strings. Help people with free content. Do this persistently and paying customers will show up.

    Target your audience. Big numbers are nice in the visitors department if many visitors are targeted. Keep meeting new people by promoting your friend’s posts and becoming part of blogging tribes. No better way to drive traffic.

    Make money by helping people make money, or by providing some other problem solving service, with your content.

    Thanks for sharing the in-depth insight Kharim!

    You are right the only way to make money out of your blog is traffic. Without it, no matter how many ideas you have, no matter how much hard work you give in generating income it WON’T work.

    I have learned lot of things in past 3 years of my blogging career life here. And still I say I’m learning and I’ll learn till I’ll be a pro.

    • Reply

      Hey Irfan,

      I mus agree with you. Without traffic then no money making will be taking place. So if we want to make money we should not chase after the money, but chase after the traffic.

      This is what will help to make the money as well.

      I am also learning as I go along and has been 2 and a half years now that I am blogging. I want to be a pro blogger as well.

      Thanbks for the comment pal.

    Great post, Kharim. really liked it. But can you specifically suggest how much traffic does a new blog is expected to get? Ofcourse, it varies, but much can be considered as healthy.

    • Reply

      Well I would suggest that a new blogger try to aim for a daily traffic of 500 visitors and then work to increase that traffic to over 1000 visitors.

      This way when it comes to making money from that blog then it won’t be so hard for them.

      The more traffic then the more money this person will make.

      Thanks for the comment.

      • Mokshis


        Thanks Kharim, will keep that in mind. But for the time being need to concentrate on quality stuff only.

    This is one of the greatest article I’ve ever read here at WebMaster Success Kharim. I’ve made my first $100 from my blog 5 months of hard working.

    Now I’m able to sell advertisement space to make money from my blog. The only thing which everyone need to make money from their blog it to build good reputation and build trust other than having a good traffic.

    Thanks for this article Kharim.

      Hello Ehsan,

      I was just talking to my girlfriend and was telling her that this is going to be one of the best posts that I have written for my blog.

      I tried to put information in this post that I know was needed in order to help new bloggers to make money from their blog.

      It is great to see that you have made your first $100 selling ads as well.

      I remember some time ago when I made over $700 in pay per click ads. It was a great feeling!

      I hope things are going great with your blog and hope that it will make more money as well.

      Thanks for the comment.

      Hey Nishant,

      For a new blogger the first $100 to them is an accomplishment. They can now say that their blog has the ability to make more money if they put in the work needed.

      After earning the $100 they can now set other goals for earning more.
