He reported more and more on Livingroom about how to earn money with a blog. But since the target group was rather different, they weren't that enthusiastic about it. Kind of understandable, So there was "no place" for that and that's why in 2004 he decided to start a separate blog – Problogger . And because this sub-blog story was utter rubbish, selling banner ads was hard, and branding couldn't be done, he started the Digital Photography School . Haha, another fun part, his wife set a limit of 6 months for him to make a decent income from this blogging story. Otherwise he would have to look for a "normal" job.
What is Digital Photography School and Problogger? Since there were already a lot of blogs that provided field reports about cameras, he was looking for a way to differentiate himself. That's why he focused the Digital Photography School on beginners who just bought a camera and really don't have a clue. Today Israel phone number list this blog already has over 500,000 subscribers , incredible, right? On Problogger, however, Darren wants to help other bloggers learn and improve their blogging skills, share experiences, and just promote the medium of blogging. How does Digital Photography School and Problogger make money? Darren Rowse is the only blogger in this series who uses banner advertising.
On Digital Photography School in particular, there are people who enter exactly in AdWords that they want to be advertised on this blog, simply because this blog has so many visitors and such a strong brand. does affiliate marketing and also sells eBooks, which seem to be doing very well as that's the biggest chunk of sales. And yes, he doesn't write all the eBooks himself, but simply looks for strong partners. Again, I don't have exact numbers to give here, but it's a multi-million dollar business. Oh yes! Many people don't even know that the Digital Photography School is Darren's race horse.
