I’m sure some of you readers know of John Chow of John Chow Dot Com. He started his blog back in December of 2005 and monetizing in September of 2006 with $0 in ad revenue. Fast forward 1 year and now his blog is among the top 1000 according to Technorati. On top of that, his blog now generates approximately $2800/month from link/ad revenue (in 5 months)!
You may be thinking that $2800USD/month is a lot of money to be generated from a blog but not for John. John Chow Dot Com is more of an after thought for John, a side project if you will. How does this Vancouver resident do it? The answer is … experience. John is the head honcho behind long time site The Tech Zone, an extremely popular high tech site that does reviews on computer components. John has never mentioned his income from his main site but from reading his blog and how he describes his blog income as a fraction of his web income, it’s safe to assume that he makes at least $20K-30K/month (USD) web income. Yes, you heard right, PER MONTH.
John usually posts about a variety of topics, but my favorite topics are his blog ad optimization articles and what works best for him. John was also the first to introduce me to AGLOCO. John made over $25k from the old AllAdvantage program, and already has 3000 referrals under him for AGLOCO. When the AGLOCO program starts, you can be assured that John Chow is going to be among the leaders of AGLOCO income.
I visit his site regularly. Why? Probably because he has taken control of his own life, living his dream, and telling us the story of how he did it. Not only does he love doing what he does, he is making HEAPS of money doing it! What’s better than that?
Update May 2008: John Chow dot Com now makes over $30k / month on the blog alone!If you would like to read more articles like this, you can sign up for my free weekly money tips newsletter below (we will never spam you).
