Make Money Online: An interesting conversation topic.
In my previous article, I talked about how to start blogging, where I shared some of the basics about starting a blog. Continuing the series, today I’m going to write how to make money blogging.
The questions “how to make money from a blog” or “how to monetize a blog” may bother you, because starting a blog and making real money from it are two different things.
This is my favorite topic as I have tried numerous methods of monetizing my blog over the past 3 years (including micro-assignments) and have had good success in all of them.
If you are a newbie (or average blogger) who just started blogging, this article will show you the best methods for making money from blogging.
Perhaps you are using several of them, where few of them will be new to you. But, after reading this article, you will understand in a new way how to use various techniques on your blog to make money from it.
Let’s take a look at how to make money blogging with the right methods.
Get income from Google Adsense
AdSense is Google’s platform that gives you the ability to display related ads on your blog.
To be approved by Adsense, you must submit your blog to AdSense.com. They will ask questions in the form of name, address, your blog’s URL, blog topic, and more.
Just fill out the form carefully and submit. Google will review your form manually to ensure it meets the quality guidelines.
Note: For India, they have been approving websites for at least 6 months.
Display ad banners
This is one of the best practices that all large companies use.
They charge a fixed amount of money from different companies that want to display their banners on their sites.
The banner ad monetization method runs on a monthly basis where companies pay upfront money before posting their ads on their blog.
Sites like BuySellAds are one of the largest marketplaces for buying and selling banner ads.
Here is a screenshot of a website asking for different prices for different banner sizes on their blog.
Write a Product Review
Many of the reviews you read about various products are paid.
Yes … This is the harsh truth.
Companies pay large sums of money to bloggers to write positive product reviews.
So you can introduce some companies and ask them to write reviews of their products and promote them with the authority of your blog.
Text links in articles
Many companies just want a text link inside your article for their website SEO.
This way, you can write a relevant article on your blog and insert the link of this company anywhere in the post with appropriate context.
Make a video about the product
If you have a popular blog, companies will pay you much more if you can do a video review of their products.
Videos are a great way to get your message across in a very short time.
This is my favorite way to make money online, as we can generate huge passive income by this method.
In this method, you advertise someone else’s product on your blog by posting banner ads or leaving product reviews.
You may be confused as I mentioned these two methods above.
So let’s clear up this confusion first.
In the above 2 methods, companies pay you FIX AMOUNT to display banner ads (say $ 200 per month) and to write reviews on your blog (say $ 400 per review).
Affiliate marketing is completely different from this.
This is where you join an affiliate marketing program for a company and they will pay 10-80% of the amount of each sale you make.
Here you will receive a unique tracking link that will tell the company that you have made a specific sale.
Sell your own service
Once your blog has gained credibility in your niche, you can start selling your own services.
You can create any software, plugin, write a book, or create a video course to sell on your blog.
Provide online training
If you have a popular blog, it will be easier for you to sell online training.
You can find your audience’s interest and then create a product around it. Like Source-Wave’s Alex Becker, he built a brand that easily sells his SEO courses online and makes $ 500,000 a month.
This is one of the best money making methods used by all the major internet marketers in the world.
In this method, you just need to get people to the page and get them to take action.
This could be filling out one form, submitting mailing information, submitting your credit card information for a free trial offer, or any other action.
CPA stands for Price Per Action / Acquisition.
Here, companies will only pay you for the action.
Using email marketing
You may have noticed that I am giving “FREE Quick Start Blogging Guide” on my blog in exchange for your email address.
By doing this, I collect emails from my readers so that I can send them whatever I want.
By giving away FREE goodies on your blog, you form a relationship with your readers and contact them via the email they gave to download the book.
For email marketing on my blog, I use the Mailchimp autoresponder which is one of the proven email marketing solutions in the world.
Start trying your first month for FREE here.
By giving free advice to your readers, you can build trust. Soon they will begin to follow your suggestions and listen to what you have to say.
You can send them an email with your affiliate link of any product to make easy money.
You can instruct people to write a guest post on your blog. Once you have a blog set up, people will happily pay a good amount to write an article on your blog to promote their blog. If you don’t know what a guest blog is, read it here.
Here are some of the techniques I’ve tried to make money from blogging. Choose any of the methods listed above, try for 2-3 months before moving on to the next method.
Over time, you will become a master of this method and start making money with your blog.
I hope these tips help you feel comfortable if you’ve recently started a blog.
