How to Make Money Blogging

How to Make Money with Your Blog

Make Money Blogging

Make Money Blogging

There are many reasons why someone starts Blogging, and it seems that a lot of folks start a blog because they hope to make some money with it. Not everyone makes money with their blog, but that usually is because they don’t really know how to do it. Too many think that posting some gibberish once a week on a page packed with AdSense units can make them some serious money, but that just isn’t the case.

There are ways that you can make money with your blog, and many of these are solid, established ways to make some money through blogging. The following four tips are real ways that you can make money with your Blog.

1.) Sell ads.

If you are a big deal established blogger, you can probably sell ad units direct to companies and services, but if you are a big deal blogger, you probably wouldn’t need these tips. New bloggers can sell ads too.

One of the easiest ways to get Ads on your blog is through Google AdSense. These easy to set up pay-per-click ads can help you make money each time a visitor clicks on one of their ads. Remember not to get too crazy with the ads, however; if you have too many advertisements, your visitors will stop visiting.

2.) Get into an affiliate program.

Like putting ads up on your blog, you can be an affiliate. With an affiliate program, you put up what are essentially ads, but you don’t get paid when someone clicks on an ad. You get paid either a flat dollar amount or a percentage every time a visitor clicks through an ad or link on your blog and buys something. Some affiliate programs will pay you per click as well; every program has different rules.

3.) Collect contributions.

Many bloggers make money asking for contributions or donations. If you provide your users with lots of value, you probably will have more than a few who are willing to help support you. These folks feel a small donation to help underwrite the effort you put in will be well worth continuing to read the great content you put out onto the web.

Make sure though, that if you put up a link for donations or contributions, your visitors know what they are contributing too. If you write lot about charity or nonprofit causes, a donation link may be mistaken for a way to donate to charity. Make sure that anyone who donates will know that any money they give will end up in your pocket.

4.) Drum up some business.

Blogs are a great place for you to share your thoughts and opinions, but they can also be a fabulous place to generate some business. As you blog, you should mention what you do and what services you offer and bring up some of your employment experience.

Potential clients or customers could very well be your readers, and reading your blog could make them realize that they want to hire you. To catch their eye, you don’t have to brag; instead, you should think of every post as a way to begin a dialogue with your readers where you can demonstrate your strengths and abilities.

Conclusion

These are, of course, not the only ways to make money with your blog. These four tips are just some of the ways that you can Make Money while Blogging. You can have fun with your blog, but you also can make money. Not every way to make money is right for your blog, but a combination of some of them can help you to find yourself with more money in your wallet.

  1. I really like Adsense as a way to get money blogging. I like this because it’s rally simple. You don’t have to find people to sell you ad units. You just put some code on your blog and start to make money almost instantly!

  2. Also infolinks, I think is a good way of monetizing a website. Is not to invasive, as it displays a link to certain words within the text. The good thing about infolinks, is that you can tweak it the way you want so the visitors are not bombarded with ads. It doesn’t pay as much as Adsense, but is a way of making some extra cash.

  17. Great site you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!

  18. Getting targeted traffic is crucial to appeal to advertisers. When you have developed your content, got loyal fans, then it is the time to start making money. I use buyandsellads and it is pretty decent.

  19. The biggest secret to being a “profitable” blogger is blogging about your passion. Blogs that are built with a reason of making money usually don’t make it far and do not make money.

  20. No one blogging site is going to help you make more money than the other. In order to make money and be successful, you need to create an interesting entertaining blog that draws a lot of traffic.

  21. Aaaah … Your first paragraph describes me when I just started out! Trying to make money with gibberish (or at least borderline gibberish) and adsense …. Completely guilty as charged. That is what I did initially.

    At that time I was not even aware of keyword research, domains, backlinks or anything. How I wish someone had told me what works and what doesn’t work with adsense in my initial days!

  22. I doubt ads are the way to go for my blogs. But I definitely am trying to drum up some business i.e. speaking engagements and eventually freelance social media managing. I’m trying to build up a readership and I’ll monitor how things go. I know it won’t be easy.

  23. well it’s not that easy to earn money online. there’s a lot we need to consider. and i think we need to work hard also. i love this post! thank you so much for sharing.

  24. This is a good help for beginners , blogging can be considered the surest and easiest way to market your own self, many people make use of this as a hobby but normally to gain extra income.

  25. If your blog is picking up a significant amount of organic traffic, that can convert to decent ad earnings. However, most of the top-paying ad publishing networks require you to have your own domain name to join their program. So if you’re really serious about making money on the internet, registering a domain name and web hosting is the first step.

  26. You can make money by blogging only if you have a good established blog with great traffic and ranking position. Otherwise is like chasing gooses.

  27. Selling ads and placing ads on your blog in surely the easiest way to earn money online. Writing for others is also a great way to earn money and earn experiences with others.

  28. i really need to earn money, and i think this blogging really is the answer. heeelp!

  29. There’s definitely a huge number of opportunities to make a decent living working online now for sure. There is something for everyone from students to retired citizens to do in their spare time or even full time.

  30. a good post.
    as you say, not every blog can make money, and you have to choose carefully which method of making money you want to use in your blog.
    what works for me is adsense and cpa offers
    best regards

  31. I think that anyone who starts a blog. With the sole intention of making money is. Going to fail 98% of the time. Your first priority should always be to find a topic, that you know something about, and love.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for this post. Online business is one of the fast growing source of income by many. It is easy to start. Blogging is one of it. This is what the people need in this crisis economy. Thanks for the tips. I just want to add that blogging can be a source of income but we must not forget that “We Love Doing it” is the main reason why we do it. Thanks for allowing us to share our thoughts here.

  33. oohhh this is what i wanted to know, i need extra income. although i know it’s not easy but it’s worth trying. thanks for the post.

  34. These are great ways to monetise your blog, but the other thing the top bloggers are good at is promoting their blogs. They make money because they write good content and get people to visit their site and then keep coming back.

  35. Ads is the easiest way to earn money online but you must have high PR first to ensure good amount of pay. Guest posting could also be a good idea.

  36. Its not easy to make money online and blogging specially for beginners. However a simple tips like this and lots of information reads you can do better just have faith and motivation.

  37. Last 3 months ago my cousin introduce me to blogging. I was so excited since I can express and share mu thoughts in free writing style until I found out that we can earn an income on it. I got my articles on hold and study and read more about the concept, factors and ideas and techniques to create a good post. I find this post very informative and thanks to you. You made it so clear for us.

  38. Thank you for your sharing, in the beginning, I start to play blog just for fun. And during the time of enjoying fun, I learn that it is really wonderful way of earning money. Of course, making money while blogging also needs skills and knowledge. The first condition is that you make your blog enough popular. Yah, this is a vital and difficult point to me.

  39. We just launched our blog and have just figured out how to add a post so the ads will have to come much later. We are using the blog to continue to update our customers with news and promotions, so far its working.

  40. Thanks a lot for sharing such a effective ways to monetize blog as I have tried first two and its worked for me.

    So I am working on next also as they are in my to do list.

  41. Nice Post.
    I have never seen this post before.
    Your Site was amazing.
    You always share Valuable information with us.
    Thnx.

  42. Blogging is the best way to earn handsome income. however, in my case i totally go opposite, i’m earning more from the advertisements then the Google Ads. even i’ve placed the ads at perfect location after analyzing user activity from google analytics. but i’m still happy :)

  43. Hi, Kevin! You’re right, not all bloggers make money with their blog but with some innovation and good knowledge, one can find ways to earn while having fun with blogging. I’m always inspired by successful bloggers who get to do their passion in a lucrative way. I believe that their success is a combination of their passion, commitment, and hardwork.

    Thanks for your tips, Kevin! Appreciate them very much.

  44. That’s right Kevin. I usually chose two types of monetization only. Having lots of monetization scheme will make our blog dirty and unworthy of visitors’ time.

  45. The biggest secret to being a “profitable” blogger is blogging about your passion. Blogs that are built with a reason of making money usually don’t make it far and do not make money.

  46. Excuse me, may I know how to place adsense on your site? My friend told me that this is one way of making money online? Thanks.

  47. Hi, This article is really useful and helpful for New bloggers who wants to make money from wordpress sites.

  48. All these ideas will really help me in the future to have a successful blog MORE!!
    I’m very happy!!!

  49. Hello Kevin, thank you for the tips, this surely help me a lot. Hope to hear more from you.

  50. The simplest way to make money online by blogging is to sell dofollow sidewide links if you have Page Rank 2 or more. I know this is kinnda grayhat from a SEO point of view but people will but these links, but don’t over do it, I think 10 sponsored links are enough for one blog. This is the way I made my first dollar online a few years ago.
    Cheers.

  51. You’re right we can make money on blogging, but I wonder if we can live with blogging

  52. I enjoyed reading this a lot. This will really help in monetizing one’s site.

  53. So true, but don’t be too overwhelmed of the idea of making money instantly through blogging. Building up your brand first before setting up a business via your blog would be an assurance for more opportunity on making an income.

    Advertisement are one of the most popular and easiest way to get bucks out of it.

  54. Hey,
    I am a blogger, and at the moment I am searching for ways that could make my blogging more money making. So glad that I met this article of yours. It is for sure gives me a lot of tips and guides on making a more money efficient. Thanks.

  55. great blog! this has really helped me, am new to blogging, blogging can be considered the effective and easiest way to advertise your self in my opinion

  56. Unfortunately, low traffic blogs ain’t making money. So as we go blogging, we should build quality traffic to ensure the earnings. I am serving contextual adverts from Google Adsense only. I don’ want to add more monetization to my blog because I don’t want to annoy my visitors.

  57. I didn’t even think about collecting contributions. That is a great point. I have a paypal account so that would be pretty easy to convert it over for my blog. Thanks for the idea.

  58. This is really a good help for all newbie like me, blogging can be consider the effective and easiest way to advertise your own self.

  59. I make some money off of the ads on my WordPress blogs but it’s really my personal blog that I wish would prosper more. I wish I spent more time researching to find out if I had a market before I started something I feel too attached to to let go of now.

  60. You have raised some very good points, Kevin. I see far too many blogs with basically just ‘filler’ in them but with all the Adsense tricks in place of course. I totally believe that without unique and useful content, the blog cannot go any farther than the basic initial success that might be achieved with such shortcuts. Like you said, you can get rewarded by your visitors via donations if you regularly post content that is helpful to them and keeps them wanting to come back to your site.

  61. Hi Kevin,

    I think your tips are good ones. Affiliate sites are numerous now and it does mean that making money in this way is harder than it was a few years back. But with that said, there is now such a massive variety of different types of affiliate programs that the variety is immense! If you get your marketing right and do something that sets you aside from the competition, it can be lucrative.

    Cheers,

    Andrea

  62. Hey Kevin,
    As a newbie in this industry, I am searching for a job that might could sustain my daily uses and help me to gain money even a little. So glad that I met this article of yours. I gained an idea of trying out this kind strategy. Thanks. :)

  63. I have monetized my site with Google adsense. Now a days it has become very tough for new bloggers to get adsense approval. So they can start with other PPC ads like adbrite, bidvertiser etc. Once you acquire a good ranking you can then use affiliate program on your blog.

  64. Great list of monetizing tips, Kevin.

    I think contributions are a well underrated way to generate revenue from a blog. I know I myself am happy to contribute to keep good blogs I read regularly running and I am sure I am not the only one!

  65. Thanks for a great post.

    Very useful. is new in the industry and even a few Danish niche sites.

    I’ve learned that it takes hard work if you want to make money. It is not easy money.
    but it is a fun way to make money and it can easily be done if you fight for it.

  66. Kevin,

    you forgot the most profitable. Some of what your own product. I’m all for affiliate marketing and using marketing boldly helps sell your own product is great but if you are going to spend the time to build the blogger eventually you’ll want to market your own products also. It takes time to do this, you’re not going to succeed on the very first day of your blog selling your own product. But it should certainly be a long-term goal and may eventually be one of your best moneymakers.

  67. Thanks for the tips adn advice! this will surely help me a lot!

  68. This is a good help for beginners , blogging can be considered the surest and easiest way to market your own self, many people make use of this as a hobby but normally to gain extra income.

  69. I think that anyone who starts a blog. With the sole intention of making money is. Going to fail 98% of the time. Your first priority should always be to find a topic, that you know something about, and love.

    Once you have done this. You will be able write a blog that comes from your heart. This will eventually convert into a loyal fan base of readers. Who will spread the news about your blog to their friends and followers. Which in turn will lead to sales.

  70. Well said. In addition to what you already mentioned, blogging and commenting (like i’m doing right now) is also useful for building backlinks and therefore generate quality traffic in a long term perspective. Specially if you go for good blogs that have been around for a while and focus on genuine content and information.
