The 2018 Blog Income Research Report

“You have to do whatever it takes to get your total blogging income over $2k a month. My research revealed the majority of bloggers that had over $2k in monthly income made money from more than just ads and affiliate links. They hustled to get sponsors for their posts, and they got on the phone to sell people on paying them money for monthly client services.”

Almost every blogger dreams of making money from their efforts, but few make enough to survive on and the ones who do have several things in common.

Brandon Gaille conducted an extensive survey of bloggers across all income levels and published the results in his 2018 blog income research report.

The report breaks down how the richest bloggers make their money (online courses), which niche topics make the most money (personal finance), and which ad networks and affiliate deals are used by the most profitable bloggers.
