Remember, most blogs take time to make money and the key to success is patience and something unique to offer whether it is a service, product or content. Ideally, you have a well-balanced mix of all the successful components to make money from blogging. Don’t get disheartened by all the big numbers above; look for ways to stand out. Sometimes all you need is a change in approach; if you are pitching for direct clients you may want to consider looking for agencies. The first 10 or so clients may not necessarily come to you rather you may have to go get them.

The internet is the biggest marketplace in the world so feel free to hunt for your first few clients. Once you have a few repeat clients you could be well on your way.
