I’m going to tell you whether or not you can make money with 2,000 pageviews per month on your blog. Before I go further, you need to know that a blog doesn’t earn money based on the number of pageviews it gets. However, the higher the pageviews, the better the chances to make more money.

If you have a blog with over 1,000 pageviews and it isn’t making money, but you’re expecting to reach 2,000 pageviews over the next couple of months, then this blog post might come in handy.
The core purpose of this blog post is to showcase that it’s possible. You might wonder why I’m so confident about this. Well, I want to be 100% transparent with you. StartedBlogging is getting 2,000 pageviews per month on average, and it’s making a little money as well; this why I’m confident that you can do even better.
Now, the primary focus of this blog post isn’t how exactly you can make money with 2,000 pageviews on your blog, but instead, I want to prove my point that this blog is making money. It doesn’t necessarily mean I won’t touch on a few ideas on how you can make money if you have 2,000 or fewer pageviews per month on the blog. So hang in there.
Can You REALLY Make Money With 2,000 Pageviews Per Month on the Blog?
Let’s get down to business.
I’ll pop some screenshots in the blog post. However, I won’t be sharing the affiliate products, well-ranked blog posts, and the exact money this blog is earning for some reason; it won’t make a difference, anyway.
The pageviews are a key website metric that helps you determine the success or failure of the website project. The rule of thumb is that the higher the number of pageviews, the bigger the revenue of the site. However, there are exceptions to this principle, meaning you might find some affiliate sites that earn a handsome amount of money with low traffic.
Let me give you a sneak peek of the blog income:

How You Can Make Money with 2,000 Pageviews Per Month
You must be anticipating how to pull this off. So here are the monetization methods I use on this very blog to earn a decent income even with 2,000 pageviews on average:
Several Affiliate Products
I have been promoting several relevant affiliate programs that are in line with my blog content strategy. The main reason why most affiliate marketers fail to generate affiliate sales is that they promote irrelevant products and mostly without any authority.
I don’t talk about the stuff that I don’t know about or haven’t done it before. It’s one of the important lessons I learned about affiliate marketing. So I stick to the products or categories that are related to my line of work. Ever since I applied this tactic of promoting the products that I have tested, I started seeing affiliate sales.
Sponsored Blog Posts
The sponsored blog posts could a great way of adding an additional income stream to the blog. I wasn’t paying attention to the sponsored blog posts until a couple of months ago. I have done sponsored blog posts twice on my blogs, and they could be a significant addition to your blog income.
Now I’m looking forward to accepting more sponsored blog posts across all my blogs. I use the Easy Affiliate Links plugin that could add the sponsored UTM tag to the sponsored link, which is a way of being honest with Google.
If you’re wondering how to find clients for sponsored blog posts, then I would say that all you need is to rank a few articles in Google and sit back. Link builders and SEOs find the relevant blogs through Google search and contact the blog owners. That’s what happened with my blog.
I’m not going to lie; Google AdSense hasn’t been an excellent income source specifically on this blog. However, I made some changes in the ads settings after testing auto ads for three months straight. Now, I’m hopeful that clickability would get better, and therefore, it would increase the ad revenue.
I’ll share my experience in a future blog post if I’d be able to increase my Google AdSense revenue. So consider subscribing to this blog if you’re a blogger or a publisher who is curious about Google AdSense.
What’s the Takeaway?
The purpose of this blog post was to send a message across that you can make money off of your blog even it’s getting more or less 2,000 pageviews every month.
Not only did I share the earning screenshots, but I also revealed the monetization methods that I have been relying on at the moment.
So the takeaway is that you can make a little money even if you don’t have thousands of pageviews every month.
Simply focus on the niche you know about and try to answer questions through your content.
The earning opportunities are countless once the blog has the right direction, loads of traffic, and highly-ranked articles in Google, but I wanted to establish that you can make money with a little traffic too.
In other words, the blog trajectory seems to be right, and all I need is to scale it.
So I’m hopeful that this blog post brought some motivation, hope, and help to everyone who has just started a blog.
