How to Make Money Blogging

Bloggers all across the world are trying to figure out how to use their blogs to make money online. This may seem easy to accomplish in theory, but it gets a lot more difficult to pull off in practice once you actually start attempting to monetize your blog.

One thing many bloggers fail to realize is that some monetization methods just aren’t going to be that effective for your particular audience. So it’s always best to test out and try different ways to monetize your blog to figure out which products, services, or types of ads your audience responds to.

Here is a student of mine (in my affiliate marketing methods training course called AffiliateU) who has incorporated many tactics I taught him and making money online.  What is better than that?

And remember to test out these different types to figure out which ones provide the best return on your particular blog.

4 Ways to Make Money Monetizing Your Blog

  • Promoting your business through blogging – if you already have an existing business, the easiest way to become an authority in your market and attract new customers is to blog about important topics related to your industry. Not only will this prove that you are an authority, but it will also show potential customers that you know what you are doing and can help them with their problems and concerns.
  • Creating membership websites – you can use your blogging efforts to drive traffic to membership websites that you create and have customers sign up to for a fee. Blogging provides you with the authority that you need to prove that you can help your potential customers. If you blog enough to gain massive amounts of traffic, you will attract a wide audience that would be happy to pay good money to join your membership website.
  • Promoting affiliate products – for many bloggers, one of the easiest ways to get started making money online is to share affiliate products throughout their website content. To achieve the greatest level of success promoting affiliate products, it’s best to take time to actually review the products that you want to promote. Always provide a favorable review that will convince people to buy the product. Once they buy it, you will get a percentage of the sale based on the affiliate agreement.
  • Sell digital products – selling digital products is also an excellent way to make great money on the Internet. Instead of promoting products that other people have created, you will take the time to create your own digital product and promote it through your blogging efforts. The great thing about selling your own digital products is that you get to keep 100% of the profit. Plus, you can create your own affiliate program and have others promoting the products that you create on your behalf.

At the end of the day, it’s important to know that it’s a lot easier to make money blogging than you may have originally thought. But remember, in order to be a success you’ll have to put in the time, effort, and energy to make your blogging endeavor profitable.

But before you do any of that, you must choose a hosting company.  If you ever need help with that, please reach out to me and I’ll point you in the right direction.  Right now, this is the one I’m recommending.  But of course, things change sometimes, so please check back often and see what we have going on.
