- 1 10 Ways to Make Money from Your Blog
You know it is possible, don’t you?
People think we are wrong! They consider us as blabbering fools, who don’t want to work hard to make money. For them, blogging is a joke.
But you know, make money online is a meaningful phrase. And, that realization is going to change your life forever.
If you want to earn some real money from your blog, it’s important for you to work smarter, not harder and follow the experts.
In this article, I am going to share ten ways to make REAL money from your blog. Yeah, you just heard it right! Without further ado, let’s get started.
10 Ways to Make Money from Your Blog
I have included ways and practical advice under each section to maximize your earning.
1. Join an Advertisement Network
You might have heard this before. Though there are dozens of ad networks, I prefer using AdSense.
No, I am not scaring you. Just shared the truth!
Getting the approval doesn’t mean you can earn millions overnight. AdSense needs organic traffic (direct search engine visits). If you don’t have considerable visitors from tier 1 countries like US and UK, you must not keep your bar of hope high.
You can go for RevenueHits or any other ad network if you don’t get AdSense. But bear in mind that you need loads of traffic to earn a significant amount.
2. Promote Affiliate Products
Oh, I love this!
The best thing about affiliate marketing is you don’t want tons of traffic. Yeah, you can earn $1000 from only one visit!
The tricks lie in the way you promote your blog among targeted audience. The logic behind affiliate marketing is simple. You promote someone else’s product on your blog. When someone buys from your link, you get paid a percentage as the affiliate commission.
Many products and services have direct affiliate programs (for example, hosting). Alternatively, you can join affiliate networks like ShareASale or CommissionJunction as well.
One of the popular make-money-blogging methods today is Amazon affiliate site. You can join Amazon’s affiliate program and promote the products available on the marketplace to earn money.
3. Publish Sponsored Posts
Publishing sponsored posts is another way to make money from your blog. When your blog gets famous, brands reach out to you to publish an article about their product on your blog. In return, you get paid.
The amount for a single review varies with the quality and popularity of your blog. I know bloggers, who get paid $500 for a single post.
4. Create an Online Store
Don’t tell me you haven’t purchased from online at least once.
Why don’t you create one such store? Yeah, you can do it! WooCommerce and Shopify are two efficient plugins that help you make an online store for your blog.
Then, you can start integrating products from popular marketplaces. I recommend you sell your products (like an ebook) as well.
5. Sell Ad Space
I have already told you about making money from Ad Networks.
You know what? You can sell your ad space on your blog! All you have to do is displaying an advertise here banner and linking the same to a page with guidelines.
If your blog is popular enough, brands will reach out to you with their ads.
6. Sell Your Services
Does this sound like a joke? No, I am not joking. You have the potential to sell your service.
Let me ask you one question. What is the one area you think you excel at? Writing? SEO? Or any other fields?
Why should you sell your services to the needy people? All you have to do is creating a Hire Me or Services page with detailed information. Don’t forget to tell your blogger friends about it.
Getting the first client is the hardest step! I have been there, trust me. Once you get the first client, you wish for more than 24 hours to manage your work.
7. Create a Membership Section
Let’s say you are an expert freelance writer. You can make money from your blog by setting up a membership section on your blog. Why should people pay for it? Well, you must put some valuable and actionable guides that work for you.
Yeah, I know! You have to work hard to pump yourself to create resources. At the end of the tunnel, you get a lot of people signing up for your site’s membership.
8. Sell Links
Bloggers are crazy about backlinks. So, you can make money from your blog by giving a link from it. The price depends on the matrices of your blog like DA, CF, etc.
I don’t recommend this method! Google hates selling links.
But you can go for it if you are in urgent need of money. Make sure the site you want to link to isn’t loaded with spam content.
9. Ask for Donations
What if you don’t want to implement any of the seven methods I have presented above?
Asking for donations works well, then. Beware! Don’t go for this way if you use any other monetization method. People consider you as a laughing stock rather than a service provider.
10. Sell Your Blog
The final and one-time method to make money from your blog is selling it.
Again, I don’t ask you to go for this unless you need money. Try not to sell it. If you keep on working on it, you can make multiple times the amount you get by selling.
But yeah, it takes time. Growing a blog to money making potential is a long-term process.
So, what do you think?
I have given you ten methods to make money directly from your blog. My favourite way is affiliate marketing.
Unlike those people who have no idea about blogging say, you should work like Hercules to make significant and consistent money.
Good luck. J
