How I Make $40,000 a Month From a Blog

written by John Chow on June 23, 2009

Download my FREE eBook!

Here’s a video of my presentation from last night’s Vancouver Business, Marketing and Entrepreneur meetup. My topic was how I make $40,000 a month from a blog and I had a sold out house. It wasn’t the original topic I had planned to speak on but since the organizer had put that up on the meetup site, I was pretty much stuck with it.

The video contain information that I have never written about before – it revealed my blog business model. As you can read from the reviews, the information was extremely well received and everyone thought it was well worth the price of admission. And you’re going to get it for free!

The entire presentation was over 1.5 hours long. I edited it down to an hour by taking out the Q&A at the end. I recommend you grab a drink, a bite to eat and pull up a chair because you’re going to want to watch this from beginning to end.

Email software mentioned in the video: Aweber

Finally something (again)on how good your blog performs. I was wondering where the monthly blog results post of past times were gone.

Like always – good publicity and it will probably attract more readers to your blog.
Have to restart the vid tonight as I have tto hurry now.

ProBlogineer June 24, 2009 at 6:37 pm

yes true, why you are not posting monthly revenue reports since long? they were exiting :D

I agree. They weren’t only exciting but they also motivated me and inspired me.

Because the reports aren’t increasing anymore lol

TYCP Entertainment Magazine July 5, 2009 at 4:44 pm

That would be false. John used to make just a little over $32K a month. I would say that hitting $40K a month is a huge increase.

John Mackenzie July 4, 2009 at 5:26 pm

And not only good publicity, it needs a lot of effort, supernatural effort I would say. John Chow is a great guy, I like his blog especially his informatic posts. Am I right John chow with the effort?

Best regards to everyone.

Lee Ka Hoong July 21, 2009 at 9:44 pm

John had mentioned that he had no longer posting his monthly income report. Anyway, I’m still interested to see how much actually JohnChow made and how he did it.


Travel Scam July 24, 2009 at 1:52 am

This is a great video on how you make your money. But aren;t you afraid that the sales funnel would turn off your customers?

Agent 001 June 24, 2009 at 1:04 am

Awesome Video. I also consider blogging as Internet Marketing. I have not been able apply it properly yet.

Thanks for the tips. I feel more motivated now. Wish me luck that I will good at blogging.

Armen Shirvanian June 24, 2009 at 1:15 am

It was less than 1,000 per day back then.

Alot of times, it is also timing. In addition to Passion, hard work..there’s timing.

If John Chow were to start today, I don’t think it is possible to achieve $40,000 per month relatively this quick. It might take longer…a lot longer if even possible. But everything is possible.

Few years ago, you mentioned you will start a new blog without any JohnChow’s traffic/linking. How is that doing?

That site is doing really well. Traffic wise, it gets as much as this blog but doesn’t make as much because it only makes money from advertising and has no backend sale system. I guess I should do an update on that project. I had completely forgotten about it.

Abraham van der Linde June 26, 2009 at 1:11 am

Hey John.

This video took me about 5 hours to download before I could watch it. But it was really worth the wait. ( SLOOOOOW internet connection ).

I’m just wondering, why most marketers don’t share in the way you do, Is it because they have only money in their sights or what?

If more people share the way you do, more people will start making a better income, and more people will feel they belong to a community.

Internet Marketers should be a community and NOT rivals.

moralde June 26, 2009 at 1:32 am

Whew, finally finished watching the video. I now understood the concept of using the pop up signup box. I used to think of it as some evil element I need to stay away from. The reader who can handle the in-your-face signup box is the reader that counts. Thank you for that John! The back-end system residual income, etc…awesome! It pays to listen to the gurus. :)

I think ‘Refferals cash’ makes a good point. John do you think the ‘make money online’ segment of the Blogsphere is saturated? Yaro’s Mp3 categoricaly said don’t start one… unless of course you are making a ton of money..

Online Marketing’s last blog post: Make Your Sales Letter More Powerful

John Chow June 27, 2009 at 8:33 am

It’s saturated not in the way you think. It’s saturated by too many bloggers who don’t make any money online trying to teach how to make money online. The number of bloggers who do make money online teaching make money online isn’t that many.

Allen Davis June 27, 2009 at 9:29 am

So you can’t make money blogging about making money blogging unless you are making money blogging already.

You can start making money blogging about something else you know and are passionate about. Once you are making money with your blog then you can start a new blog about making money blogging.

John Chow July 3, 2009 at 9:06 am

That is correct.

Pedro June 27, 2009 at 10:15 am

Hi John,

Congrats! That’s quite an achievement!

But, why no more monthy updates on your blog’s income?
Legal stuff?

Keep up.

John Chow June 27, 2009 at 7:31 pm

My accountant advised me to stop and my advertisers told me they didn’t want people knowing how much I was making off them. So I had to stop.

Sam With Traffic Is King June 27, 2009 at 11:18 pm

Hey John,

Great vid. I almost want to call you the Frank Kern of blogging. I like your style of teaching. Very transparent. One thing that hit home. You said most people could make what you make but don’t because they give up early or don’t follow through. Similar to what Rich Schefren talks about in his business manifeso ebook. Treating your hobby like a business and not like a get rich quick opportunity. Good stuff dude.

gurtey June 27, 2009 at 11:35 pm

Well….its really amazing and im getting thrilled that you could make 40K $/month…and im following the video.

gurtey’s last blog post: Contest begins now! June 28, 2009 at 1:10 am

Thanks for the sales funnel discussion – quite cool how it all fits together.

A couple of questions:

1) I am going to write an ebook related to the topic I blog about – should the subsequent auto-responders be further detail on sections of the ebook to keep it consistent

2) if you’re not blogging about how to make money blogging, what affiliate links and/or steps should we include in the funnel?

3) do you end with the ‘big product’? what if you don’t have a 6 month course to offer?


ZK @ Web Marketing Blog June 28, 2009 at 1:51 am

Yes this is the post which I was looking for from past few days. The day when you have announced that you are going to give a speech about your money making of $40000.

Now let me grab a drink and few chips so that I can see it without any interruption.

beginnerblogger June 28, 2009 at 4:26 am

This is exactly what I would love. Time and financial freedom.

I’ve currently been working my first full time job for a year now and I must say, although the job can be great fun at times, it feels like a prison in a way that I *have* to go to for the hours of 9-5.

I have a passion and desire to work for myself and I think blogging/working online is what the future will hold for me.

I’ve known I’ve wanted to do it for a while – I’ve bought a few domains a couple of years ago actually but just never got around to starting them. I have started now – recently bought hosting for my domain and this will be the start of my learning experience online. I really want to connect with people and learn through others and hopefully I can give something back too.

This is my first comment on a blog, I’m usually a bit of a lurker I guess. This is a breakthrough moment for me.

Thanks John – truely inspired me tonight. (apologies for the length ;)

Kyle June 28, 2009 at 2:31 pm

Great video! I do have one comment, however. You state most blogs are lucky to get $1-2 in revenue per 1000 pageviews these days. In my experience, it’s pretty easy to get $15-20 per 1000 pageviews using adsense alone, even today. I agree the days of throwing up just any sort of content and making the big bucks from adsense are long gone, but in certain niches, adsense is still extraordinarily lucrative.

Can I post a message to the crowd of your next meeting?

Please hold your urge to speak out and let John Chow do the talking . . . . we cant learn while you keep interrupting him . . . if you wait chances are he answers your question. . .

Again, this is a message to the crowd for the next time John Chow gets asked to speak. :)

I love your blog and your video is funny. You not only tell a great story, but you inspire me and many other people that know you. Thanks for posting this!

Shreejana Hickman July 11, 2009 at 4:59 pm

I was always scared of having the pop up email sign up, to be too much in your face type of thing, but after watching the video, I’m definitely doing it on my blog. That’s right if they are going to be bothered by that or your ads, they probaby are never going to buy anything from you anyway, and just always take your free information!!

I believe everyone should recognize a key to your success is the backend and gathering email addresses.

Website Promotion July 18, 2009 at 12:50 pm

Thanks for sharing this great video! It gave me some new ways to think about my autoresponder and sales funnel.

Also, I too was hesitant to have a pop-up email capture and was always fearful of being too “salesy” so your point is well taken on not really wanting people that don’t want to buy stuff anyway!

John I linked back to you on my blog and I hope you do not mind.

I like what you said about being an internet marketer who has a blog. Many of these bloggers are a little too self righteous about making money. Good job.

Jake | Web Journey July 19, 2009 at 1:33 pm

Man I leaned so much. I just turned 14 so think how much I can make off of an email list by the time I’m 40. I’m thinking millions. (:

Cash Back Card July 22, 2009 at 5:00 pm

I just watched most of this video. Very informative stuff. I may have to revisit it once I figure out how to catch more e-mail addresses. The trick is finding something free to offer in exchange.

fas July 23, 2009 at 11:41 am

It’s all about providing quality content for your visitors. And yet there seems to be an endless amount of people out there slapping together scrapper blogs and crap content trying to siphon money from the internet instead of adding real value. At the end of the day, I find it’s far easier to just write stuff that people actually WANT to read. Just my opinion, anyone else feel the same way?

Canada Immigration July 23, 2009 at 11:48 pm

I had been always wondering about this point.Glad you shared your sources.I knew some of them but this much i am little surprised.
But guess for new bloggers very few of them will fit.Traffic is a major concern.I hope to use some of the impression based in coming months.
Hope you are having fun out there

An informative and insightful presentation. Very motivating for new bloggers. As I gain more readers I will definitely consider monetizing my blog. You made some great points when you mentioned why bloggers don’t make money. Now that I think about it those are top reasons why bloggers don’t make money.
