When Your Blog Is Still New
You’ve chosen your niche and set up your blog.

After writing a few posts and shared them, your traffic grows steadily. The traffic is not much but you want to make money from it.

At this stage, most bloggers will go for Adsense, affiliate marketing and email marketing.

Adsense allows you to place Google ads at strategic points within your webpages. Every time a visitor clicks on an ad, Google pays a commission.

The commission paid per click will range from less than a cent to over one dollar depending on the type of ad that’s displayed on your pages.

Although a few cents per click might seem little, if the ads get a decent number of clicks per day, you might earn enough to keep the blog going as it grows.

One of the main ways to make money blogging is with affiliate marketing. This involves promotion other people’s products or services for commission. If you have a highly targeted niche blog, affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways how to blog for money.

 

 

 

You simply find products that your blog visitors are looking for and recommend them. There are numerous affiliate marketing programs to choose from the most popular being Amazon and ClickBank.

The biggest challenge you will have with traditional affiliate marketing is your reliance on the product vendor’s sales page to convert the traffic you are sending – probably from your blog.

If you’re in a highly competitive niche where hopes of ranking number one in search engine results is slim, building an email list is one of the best ways to make money blogging.

This involves having website visitors voluntarily give you their email address in exchange for something. It can be a free product or subscription to a newsletter.

Once you’ve built your list, you can sell them products or services more easily compared to relying on new traffic coming to your blog.

After Your Blog Is Established
As your blog continues to grow, you’ll find that some of the money making strategies you employed while it was new are quite ineffective. Most top bloggers actually drop Adsense as the blog grows.

The reason for this is that the blog has established a loyal following of targeted readers. Such readers are interested in what is offered by the blog rather than an ad that directs them away from it.

Some of the make money blogging strategies at this stage will include affiliate marketing, email marketing, selling ad space, selling your own product or service and blogging for pay.

Selling Ad Space
If your blog receives a huge amount of targeted traffic, selling ad space can be an easy way to make money from your blog. It involves renting out ad space to websites and blogs within your niche. You’ll charge a fixed fee to host the ads on your blog pages for a specific amount of time.

Selling Your Own Products or Services
Most of the top bloggers make money blogging by selling their own product or service. It can be an eBook, membership, software or any other product or service you can think of. This strategy is quite effective if you have established yourself as an authority within your chosen niche.

Blogging For Pay
If you’re an established blogger, chances are that you’re going to receive guest posting offers from other blogs and websites within your niche. They see you as a credible source of information and are willing to pay top dollar for your content.

You get to dictate how much you get paid per post. A few guest posts per month can easily make you thousands of dollars depending on the niche and how much you charge.

These are some of the popular ways how to blog for money.

It takes some effort on your part and, it’s essential that you focus on building credibility and a loyal following in order to be able to make the most money through blogging.

  1. I have seen tons of bloggers online all claiming they can make stacks of money with the publish of a web post. I do wonder sometimes whether they are being entirely honest. You point out in this post they are masters in the niche they choose so I guess they probably are being honest about it.

    I have always been advised to blog about what you know and go from there. I do like the list of the ideas that you give for monetizing your blog. I think the one that stands out for me is AdSense. Simply I have never tried it and will look into it further.

    • Hello Andy,
      Many thanks for your feedback. You make some interesting points re blogging and making money. As you realize its not just a matter of cresting band hit “publish” as there is so much more you have to do before you can even think about becoming a profitable blogger. You need to consistently create content that is of interest and help to your target audience and building your audience takes time and effort as well. If bloggers are claiming to be making good money online then they more than likely have build a list of targeted readers that they create content for and build trust with so thet when offers are made their readers click the links and buy the blogger’s recommendations. This all takes time and can be from 18 months to 2 years of consistent effort before a regular income stream is created. Still a really great source of online profits if you are prepared to put the work in!
