How to earn money through your Online Store. Best Tips for 2021.

Can you earn a good income from your new website? The answer is a definite “yes.” But it takes a lot of hard work. At Honey Whale, we like to be radically candid about everything we do. And website monetization is the type of topic that requires maximum transparency. As blogging and influencer marketing become professions instead of hobbies, it’s easy to assume that making money on the internet is simple. You can just create a blog, choose one of the frequently recommended monetization strategies, and watch your bank balance go up. Technically, that’s true. Around 68% of bloggers make less than $5,000 per year, but most new bloggers will quit before they see those first dollars roll in. That’s because creating a website is easy. But maintaining it means a lot of unpaid hours before monetization starts to work. However, if you power through that initial stage, build up your audience, publish new content regularly, find your target audience on social media and bring them onto your email list — and do all of the above month over month — you have a good chance of success.
