Top 10 BLOGGERS WHO MAKE MORE THAN $10,000 A MONTH & HOW THEY DO IT!
Every individual has a dream to become rich. But do you think everybody’s dream will be fulfilled? Generally speaking one can earn money in different ways. So my question is can you make more than $10,000 a month by writing a blog. This is a million dollar question. The fact is that many bloggers do not make sufficient money from their blogs. Even though one put his/her heart and soul in writing a blog, the reward they get in return is very paltry. A research conducted by iBlogmagazine says only 4.5% of bloggers earn more than $60,000 per anum. In fact, 52% earn less than $2500 per year that means only $208 per month. This is very shocking. Don’t you think so!!! If this is the truth then how to make more than $10,000 a month. Will making $10,000 a month remain a distant dream OR can become a reality.
Ask yourself can you pay your utility bills and meet your monthly expenses if you earn $208 per month even after putting 30 hours a week.
The successful mantra is – Learn from the best and adopt the strategies they used to become successful in order for you to be successful.
Here is a list of top 10 bloggers earning in excess of $10,000 plus per month.
