Making money from my blog

Already have a blog, and are wondering how to make money from the blog?

Here we are going to look at a number of ways through which you can make money from your blog.

  1. Marketing
  2. Affiliate marketing
  3. Selling ad space
  4. Selling your own products

Now let us look at each of these in details:

  1. Marketing
    This is by far the most common way of making money through blogging.
    Once your blog starts generating traffic, you can apply for marketing campaigns such as Google AdSense, infolinks, etc.
    What happens is they usually post ads about products or events in your website related to your content (e.g. a blog about sports cars, would attract ads related to sports cars like spare parts, etc), and you can either be paid using CPC (Cost per Click- where you get paid for every click) or CPM (Cost per thousand impressions – where you are paid a certain amount of money per thousand clicks) etc.

    The only thing you need to do is add the ad code you will be given to your blog/website, that’s it.

  1. Affiliate marketing
    In this case, what you usually do is promote a product in your blog. You are given links through which potential customers can buy the products. For every purchase made via your link, then you will receive a commission based on the terms that your agreed-upon sign up. 
  2. Selling ad space
    You can also sell ad space directly to advertisers in your blog. They are going to place advertisements in your blog, and then you get paid depending on the agreement between you. 
  3. Selling your own products
    If you also have products that you develop, either physical or digital, then you can sell them on your blog.These are just some of the simple ways that you can use your blog to make money.
    The key point to note here is that making money through blogging is closely tied to the amount of traffic that you receive in your blog.

Therefore, once your blog is up, you need to start working on getting more traffic (relevant traffic) to your blog.
