How Many Website Visitors Do You Need To Make Money?

Last Update: October 03, 2019

Today I noticed a couple of people asking a similar question which was along the lines of "how many website visitors do you need to make money?"...

And since I haven't blogged here for a little I figured I'd take some time out to answer it & publish it here as a blog post so that people can refer to it in the future.

The post isn't gonna be super long, but hopefully it will be insightful nonetheless...

So what's the answer?

How many website visitors DO you actually need to make money?

And when I say "make money" I'm talking making good money as in potentially providing enough to replace your current full-time income.

Can you make good money with 1,000 to 2,000 visitors per month?

Does it need be more? 30,000+ visitors per month?

Well the answer is "it depends", because one very important thing to understand is that not all traffic is equal.

And this might come as a surprise to you but one of my all-time highest earning websites was actually one of my websites that received the lowest amount of traffic.

Why?

Because the traffic to that website was LASER targeted. Nearly everyone visiting that site wanted (desperately wanted) what it was that I was promoting at the time.

So one person could be receiving 30,000 visitors to their site but only earning a few bucks, whilst another could literally be receiving under 100 visitors per day & earning thousands.

It all depends on WHO you're bringing to your site & how interested they are in what you're offering. There isn't a fixed number as to how many visitors you need.

So the next time you're publishing content on your site, put yourself into the shoes of the person that would be arriving on that page.

What are they searching? What are they reading? And what will they want to buy?

If you put a focus on both quality as well as quantity then you will soon find things will likely take off much quicker than they would do if you just play the numbers game on its own.

But yeah, in short don't be led towards thinking that you need thousands of visitors per day before you start making any money because it's simply not true.

As I mentioned a little further up in this post some people DO make full-time incomes with less than 100 visitors per day. Not everyone will - but it IS possible.

I mean sure the numbers game is a good game, it's always good to scale up, but just know that visitor numbers themselves aren't everything.

Focus on numbers AND quality & that's when you've got yourself a winning combination.

Hello bro I have promoted a product from Amazon and so later I was think about how to receive my pay at the end of the day but I realize during the lessons they made me set up Google ad sense which it could take about 2 weeks to approve me and so my question is I hope I can connect my Ad sense to my Amazon Check right and direct it to my local Bank Account is not it ?

Adsense & Amazon are separate from each other. Once you get approved into Adsense you'll be able to configure your payout settings inside their control panel - and same with Amazon. I'm not sure what different payout methods they offer but you'll be able to see that once you're approved & decide how you want to be paid :)
