We all know that blogs are a popular way to share information, ideas and opinions – but can you really make money with blogs?

Well, in a word – YES.

Making money with blogs is a possibility for just about anyone. It really depends upon your approach to blogging and the strategies you need to implement to turn your blog into a serious income.

Here are some of the most popular ways you can begin professional blogging to generate a blogging income.

1. Sell Advertising
This is the most common way blogs are monetized to generate a steady stream of blog profits. Those blogs that are very popular, with a large following of readers in a certain niche, can benefit the most from selling ad space on their blog. On the other hand, less popular blogs with a smaller readership, will tend to have more success using the Google AdSense system or similar advertising networks, that will pay you for the number of clicks received on your ads.

2. Selling Other People’s Products
You can use your blog to refer people to related products and services. This is known amongst marketers as affiliate marketing. The secret to successful affiliate marketing is active influence. If you choose a product or service related to your niche that you know will be suitable for your audience, then you can endorse it with confidence. It also pays to know the product is of good quality and ideally one that you have used yourself.

3. Direct Sales
If you have a product or service to sell to your readers then you have the ideal scenario to make money with blogs. Likewise, if your readers have told you they are interested in a certain service, and it is a service you can provide, then develop this idea and turn it into a blogging income for your business. Basically, your services then become the perfect blogging for money blueprint.

4. Network Marketing
The old stereo-typical negative model of network marketing no longer exists and has been replaced with a legitimate multi-billion marketing model. Blogs provide the ideal vehicle to provide quality information about an opportunity to someone, without pressuring them to make a decision. If you choose network marketing as your way to make money on the web, then approach it like the affiliate marketing model. Only advocate online what you use and believe in. Your audience will quickly pick up any hard-selling tactics and easily see through a blogger whose interest is only their next sale.

As the blogging community continues to grow online there are more and more ways to make money with blogs and to create a serious blogging income. So why not join the probloggers and jump on-board!
