For those of you with near 10,000 visitors per month, what kind of income does that bring?

21 replies
thats about 300 visitors per day, does that convert well?

    How much someone makes is going to completely depend on how they are trying to make money. Are you talking about ads or products or services? If products and services, then of course pricing and competitors comes into play. For ads it completely depends on your positioning and relevancy. Providing more info will help, but I think you'll find that answers will still greatly vary.

    This is one of those 'how long is a piece of string' questions.

    Impossible for anyone to give you any sort of meaningful answer.

    @NewWarrio2:
    Hi, as others have stated, you can't get a useful answer to that question.

    A site of mine gets 300,000+ Unique visitors monthly, but only ~$1500/month in earnings. The Conversions are pretty low.

    While another site of mine gets Under 100 Unique visitors/month, and earns me ~$3000/month.

    So traffic levels in a general sense, is not a good indicator of how much you will earn.

    -----

    Edit: Sorry, the first site I mentioned gets 300,000+ Unique visitors/month, (not 30K).

      I think the income from first one is very good while the second is just amazing. Not many people will make even $1.5k from 30k visits a month.

      And the earnings are just $1500/month. So to me, the conversion there is low.

      Each visitor only brings in $0.005.
      or
      I get $1 per 200 visitors.

      Yup sorry, I don't want to tell for now, but I'll probably eventually share it one day.

      However, I can tell you this:

      1) The visitors are Laser Targeted. Looking for something very specific.
      2) About 25-50% of the visitors come with the intention of buying.
      3) The Products I offer are in the $500-$1000 range.


      With those factors combined, I only need 3-6 Sales of my Products to earn $3000/month.

      3-6 buyers out of 100 visitors is a realistic figure.

      So with that, you should understand why Traffic Levels (compared across varying sites and niches) is not a useful way to estimate your potential earnings.

      -----

      The best person to answer the OPs question, would be his/herself.

      If you have 1000 visitors per month currently, how much does that earn you?

      Multiply that earnings figure by 10, to have a decent estimate of your 10,000/month visitor earnings.

        I cant imagine getting that amount of traffic to any site

        I am starting with a new offer at the moment that I think could do well
        I am aiming for 3% sales
        If I can just get 100 targeted visitors a day with a CR of 3% I would be happy
        I am pretty confident of getting 100 visitors a day but getting them in convert is a different story

    A website that brings in 300 visitors a month without converting translates into ZERO income.

    Note that it's impossible to state a figure, it depends on so much variables...

    - Niche
    - Your capability to sell
    - How's the site set up?
    - Is the traffic targeted enough

    We get a total of 30,000 unique visitors a month on average when you consider all months and seasons.

    Our average monthly income in 2013 is 13,000-15,000 depending on which way the wind is blowing - but we're in finance so if you convert it pays better than most niches.

    We make money doing CPA mostly with some income from Adsense and some Bing/Yahoo advertising as well.

      Yes, finance does pay great. But sill, to make $15k on 30k uniques, does sound far-fetched, but I am not saying its not true, I am sure it is. I am curious how you do the CPA offers. Is it on-site promotion or email?

        2 of our highest paying streams are direct deals with companies - that's why the income has grown to what it is. two of them pay 3 bucks for every click to their sites now because they convert well. without the direct deals we would be lucky to make 8 thousand a month

        email and on-site - not far fetched when you design your site to convert really well - one merchant pays 300 bucks per conversion, and 50 bucks per phone call over 2 minutes - it really ads up fast

        it tooks years to tweak navigation and ad placements to really capitalize

          That's great to hear. Its always motivating when you read stories of people doing really well, which is something you can aspire to yourself.

          Though I am in a different niche, I am wondering if you sought out those direct deals or did they come to you?

          And how do these direct deals work? Is it commission based sales (I am assuming this is the case given that you said it was CPA), or they pay you x amount to advertise on your site for their CPA offers?

            Actually the first direct deal came to me. They gave me a speaker call from their boardroom and told me that they found our site through their Adwords campaign. They could see that clicks from our site were converting really well, so they took Google out of the middle and set up a custom banner just for our site. The pay per click.

            After that experience I had the confidence to call other merchants directly to do the same thing. We only have two sites with Adsense now, and maybe someday NO Adsense.

      I thkink we get at least 800 visitors per week but 92% of them are customers [detailers, dealerships, car collectors] that buy these products because they need to use them every day. Here's why: Like and Equal are not the same!

      Sales vary from $200 to $800+ daily but that's because the company has been manufacturing their own products since 1968 and online for over 15 years. We do no advertising, articles, backlinking, etc... because most business is still done off-line.

      Starting an online business with no customers or superior products that people want or need is extremely difficult. I know this sounds like a sales pitch but I guarantee if you put up a website selling those car care products in your local city, you will make sales because car dealers across the US and Canada hate paying the shipping from California.

      Anyone interested, let me know and I'll get you started for nothing. You buy wholesale and sell retail and you can even run your own affiliate program.

      I retired in 2005 at 43 and now I give away websites like these for FREE [hosting excluded]

      When you make at least $100+ per month, we split the profit 80/20 and YOU get the 80% Until then, you keep 100% and I'll help you drive traffic, get backlinks and put the domain in your name too!

      I get about 11,000 UV's a month on one of my sites.

      I convert at 2.5%, which means that I make 275 sales a month at $24.77, which is $6800/mo. I have a $1200 marketing budget for this site, per month, which means I profit $5,600 on this site.

      Out of my 275 sales, I upsell to a $75.00 package which includes $9.99 a year in recurring commissions. I convert this at an average of 24%

      This is 66 customers, at $75, brings me to $4900

      My total is $10,500 a month, I currently have 1060 subscribed customers that pay the $9.99 a year subscription.

      I send out free (physical) gifts to my subscribers once a year that have the individual value of $5.00 per person, so you could subtract my income from my subs by half, but I send other offers to them about 3 times a year which I don't track per site.
