There is money from blogging and it only requires hard work and patience. Over the past several years, people have discovered the potential of blogging in making money. Some people have even become a full-time blogger from being a full-time office worker. You can see this evident in many popular blogs such as ProBlogger and Chris Brogan’s blog.
But how is it possible to earn profit from blogs? How do you turn this tiny corner in the World Wide Web into a money-making asset? There are certainly dozens of ways on how to earn money from blogging and these are all over the internet. Here are three examples that you can apply to your blog.
Sell Your Ads Space
Letting others put their advertisements in your blog is considered as the most basic of the money-making ways in the internet. All you need to do is to contact people who might want to put some ads in your blog and let them have it. You can try Google’s AdSense to get the feel of this process. On the other hand, in order to get this process to be successful, you need to have enough number of traffic because you earn your commissions through ad clicks and views.
Do Content Marketing
Let us say, you are a chef and you are obsessed in making recipe videos and culinary tutorials. One tactic which you can use to make money from blogging is through content marketing. The rule is simple; you make content and you sell it. For example, you create this compilation of summer recipes. What you can do is to use a sample or “trial” video and somewhat mention your summer recipe compilation in the video. Let’s say your readers can get it for only $1.99 or they just subscribe and they get it for free. You win, either way. It is either they avail it and you get profit or they subscribe and you get loyal visitors which are considered as traffic.
Engage in Affiliate Marketing
If you do not have a product to sell, then sell other people’s products. This way you will earn commissions on products you didn’t spend even a cent on. You only need to find a blog or website that offers their products and is under an affiliate program which lets people get commissions through selling their products or services. Usually, you only need to register in those specific blogs or websites to be an affiliate and your goal is to sell the product and you get commissions. Basically, you put the product link on your blog to get your visitors to that product’s page. This is more like giving referrals to that certain product which makes money from blogging quite faster, easier and care-free. Some affiliate programs even provide 50 percent commissions, so you might want to check this out.
There are many other ways on monetizing your blog. The others are for those who are in the “expert” level. But for newbies, these are, most probably, the easiest and the most basic ways on making money from blogging.
