Welcome to the FAQ! Below are the answers to the most common questions we get here at Website Creative Pro.
I (David) will keep my answers for each question no more than a few sentences to keep this short, concise, and to the point.
How Long Does it Take?
Ah, easily the most common question. How long does it take to make a blog or website that can start making money. If you do proper keyword research, pick the right niche, do the work consistently week over week (publishing at least 2 pieces of content) and focusing on a traffic source other than Google it will take about 6 months to start seeing results.
At the 6 month mark you should start seeing an increase in traffic and be getting enough traffic to where you start earning money. After continued work, week over week at about a year mark you should have a profitable asset.
What 1 year?! Yes 1 year. Minimum – more like 1.5 – 2 years. If this model is not for you, that’s cool – but blogging is one of the best business. It just takes a lot of time and up front work, but once it’s built you have this machine that helps people and makes money.
But again, It’s a grind as is anything worth doing.
Can you link to my website?
