If you are looking to monetize your blog / site then it will require anywhere from 50 - 100,000 visits per day for it to be effective in that area. However, take notice that newly made blogs are under the pending status for the first 6 months of existence to search engines. So taking short cuts to build up traffic is not recommended cause sites like that get pushed to the back of the line for trying to cheat the system. Keeping it basic for that amount of time will determine where you stand when those months are up. But when that time period is up then alternative promotional methods shouldn't be as bad.
Make sure each post is 500 - 2500 words long in order for them to be search engine friendly. Tag keywords from your title a few times in the body of the post including the first three lines. Make sure those keywords are your tag words when you are setting up the post to go live. Also, even though this is what kind of sucks about the net but including main stream topics on your blogs will keep it in line with the competition. Otherwise, it will be considered out of touch with things no one is looking up at the time.
[ Unless of course your blog is based on a certain niche ]
Ultimately the turn out really comes down to you as a writer, what content you have prepared, how often you want to post and how familiar you are with blogging. So, if you want to just get your feet wet first then the Free option is recommended but if your ready for the next step then pay for your site and get a move on. But so you are aware the average person that pay for their sites usually have an audience on standby. Which means connections are accrued from their following on social media and video platforms. Which is something they will probably never let people know at the end of the day.
So good luck and if there are any questions, leave a comment and I will answer them.

P.S. 500 word long posts are made for casual readers where as articles as long as 2500 words are for things like tutorials and evaluations.
