There are countless ways you can make money through blogging. Since I started blogging in 2008, I discovered 4 proven ways.
1. Earn through Online Advertising
An online advertising is what you usually see in any blog. These are platforms on your sites automatically shows ad and you don’t need to create banners for them. You simply enter a tracking code to your website and you are good to go.
As of this time, Google Adsense is the leader in online advertising. I highly recommend you get signed up in Google Adsense. You can also utilize an alternative online advertising platform, but I don’t encourage you place them alongside with Adsense on your website. Your account with them might get terminated.
2. Earn through Affiliate Marketing
You can link a product, brand or service from your website. If someone who is interested in it and when a sale is made, you earn a commission from that sale. That is affiliate marketing.
There are a lot of stores out there that offer partnership through their affiliate program. Some of these include Amazon, Society6, and Clickbank.
What’s good about affiliate marketing is you don’t have to create your own product and you don’t have to have your own inventory. You simply promote them in your website.
3. Earn Through your Expertise
Did you know that some bloggers are now experts in their field because they started sharing their ideas through blog? I also know someone who got hired because of his blog. He has no Ph. D., which was a requirement in a university but he was able to get his dream job because of his blog.
Same thing can happen to you. Just keep sharing and somebody out there will notice your blog and you may be invited to become a speaker.
Yes, you can get paid for it.
4. Earn through Selling Your Own Product
Don’t sell your products for the sake of making a profit. Sell a product that will improve the quality of life. Sell a product that will help your readers become better in their field. Add value in their lives through your product.
In your blog, you can sell your own brand, product or service. I have to let you know that you only sell your own product when you established your authority in your chosen field. How can you establish it? By simply consistently sharing what you know!
No matter how you want to earn through your blog, it will always boil down to sharing of your idea through your blog. The primary thing that you need to do is share what you know about the world and your earning will follow.
