How much money can one make with a new blog in Kenya


If you’ve a new blog in Kenya, you can make on average Ksh 20,000 per month depending on how aggressive you are and the way they monetize your traffic. A new blog normally less than one-year-old and such a blog gets numerous challenges in regards to breaking even in the blogosphere.

A blog that’s less than three months old hardly generates over Ksh10,000 per month unless the owner creates more than 10 viral posts per day. Majority of Kenyan bloggers generate income through AdSense.

From my own experience, it’s after one year of blogging that traffic numbers start to rise, especially organic traffic. When I started my first blog, it took me 6 months before I earned by first Ksh10,000. Thereafter, I started earning upwards of Ksh50,000.

I have learnt over years that a new blog gets traffic of 1 to 300,000 in the first year.The traffic starts to grow exponentially from the second year.With traffic of less than 300,000,here is the amount of money that blog will earn from AdSense:

  1. 10,000 page views—Ksh 2,000
  2. 50,000 page views—Ksh8,000
  3. 100,000 page views—Ksh15,000
  4. 300,000 page views—ksh50,000

Your aim as a blogger is to get more than 300,000 monthly page views in order to earn above Ksh 50,000.

There are bloggers generating income through affiliate marketing, though the number is very low. Those with new blogs can make up to Ksh100,000 per month if they choose the right affiliate programs.

Now,if you wish to start a new blog,the capital required is Ksh 5,000 to Ksh 20,000.HostPinnacle or Kenya Website Experts will register a domain for you and offer hosting services.But I prefer HostPinnacle because it’s cheap and reliable.You’ll pay Ksh1,999 per year only.To contact HostPinnacle,click here to visit the company’s website

Make sure that your blog is designed trough WordPress.
