So you want to make money online from blogging huh? Well before I even start, let me tell you this: blogging won’t make you rich tomorrow or by next week, so if you’re ok with that, let’s get started!
To be honest, there are a thousand different ways to make money from blogging, but what I’m only going to share the ones that I’ve done myself and are the fastest way to make money from blogging.
First, do you even have a blog?
If you already have a blog, just move onto “how a blog makes you money” section, but if you don’t, you need to start a blog first. I personally suggest you to spend some money (you can start a blog with $5!) to get your own domain and start publishing under your own name. If you’re not familiar with hosting and WordPress, you can have me install your blog for FREE. Watch this video to see how you can start your blog with your own domain for just $5 in the next 30 minutes without having to do anything:
Second, how a blog makes you money?
Ok now that you have a blog, let’s see how you can monetize it. There are many different ways do monetize a blog:
1. Promote a specific product or products in a category (niche blog)
A niche blog can be a blog like TopLevelAffiliate or more specifically, it can be about a single product like my Google Sniper blog and this is by far is the best way to make money from blogging, especially if you’re new to the blogging world. Blogging about a specific product allows you to easily dominate that specific product on search results and earn good commissions.
You can learn niche or product based blogging using Google Sniper course. Watch my full review of Google Sniper here:
2. Advertising (only works if you get at least 10,000 visitors a month to your blog)
After working on your blog for a while and doing everything right, you can start collecting fees for sponsored ads. Many affiliates in your niche are willing to pay to have a banner add on a niche blog even with less than 10k visitors a month.
3. Build relationships with other bloggers
Working with other bloggers will bring you more traffic, attention and money. You can be active by leaving comments on other blogs and appreciate their good content. This will grab other bloggers attention and will help you to build profitable relationships with other bloggers in your niche.
4. Write random posts
Sometimes writing random posts that are not related to your blog can make you crazy money. A while back I published a post about a book that I read and at the end of the post, I simply added an amazon affiliate link. That simple post got me 50 sales on amazon!
The point I’m trying to make is that having some random posts on your blog makes your blog look more like a “human” written and controlled blog and also can bring good profits if you add affiliate links to it.
I strongly suggest you to start with niche blogging and the best way to learn niche blogging is to learn it from people who are doing it professionally. Take a look at google sniper 3.0 course and see how you can earn money blogging by creating blogs that will take you less than an hour to setup.
