How to make money from your blog:
- Promote Your Goods and Services: Many people create a blog or website to sell a certain product or service. For instance, if you want people to hire you for your skills in photography, writing, graphic design, virtual help, social media, consulting, and so on, you should write a resume. Alternatively, you might create a shop to sell a variety of physical and digital things (such as online courses, eBooks, printables, and software) and use the blog as part of your SEO or visitor engagement strategy.
- Affiliate Marketing: This is how the majority of bloggers make money…a lot of money…like six-figure monthly salaries every month of the year. Unlike option #1, where you offer your own services/products, affiliate marketing entails assisting someone else (a business or a blogger) in selling their items in exchange for a commission. You can just mention their helpful products in your blog posts. Examples are: ShareAsale, Fiverr, and more!
- Advertising: Allowing advertisements (ads) to display on your blog is one of the easiest ways to earn passive income. When visitors visit your blog, they view these ads along with your other content. Depending on your ad network, you can make money from these advert views and also when visitors click on them. The most popular ad network for beginner bloggers is Google Adsense.
- Sponsored posts: Companies may approach you and ask you to write a review for their product or service, which you can then post on your blog. They will usually charge a predetermined cost for this service. They may also offer you a sample of the goods as compensation, or they may do both (i.e. pay you in cash as well as give you a sample product). Your clout grows as your target audience grows, and you can charge more money for sponsored content.
