How to Earn Through Blogging

34 replies
Hello there warriors!

I am just curious on how people earn by blogging. I have been writing for years for clients who have their own websites. I am still figuring out how they would earn from building a site. I have an account on Wordpress where I am writing about fashion and my travels. There were audiences but it is fairly personal. I have heard that there are those who earn from doing such but I do not know how. Please help me.

    Idea is simple. create a website around a topic that people are searching for. Use Google Keywords tool to get ideas of topic and keywords. Write useful content on those topics and promote your content on social sharing websites. Then use Google Adsense to monetize your content or sell affiliate products from Amazon and Clickbank to get referral commissions.

    Monetize it through advertising and upgrades. Perhaps a subscription or membership model.

    Kaye,

    Here is one resource that you should visit. ProBlogger.net

    The owner, Darren Rowse, goes into great detail about how to make money blogging. He is doing it very successfully.

    Also, I would encourage you to get your own domain name and hosting for your blog so that you have total control of it rather than just a account that can be closed by someone else.

    The very best to you.

    It's no different from anything else. You still have to generate leads. Make sure that you make it super obvious that you want people to subscribe to your blog.

    Whenever you make a new post, your email program will automatically send out a broadcast to your blog subscribers that you have a new post out.

    You can have an opt-in form on the side of your blog, and even combine this with a hover ad that appears whenever someone visits your blog.

    For monetization, include adsense and affiliate items - or even your own products or services. But they have to be relevant towards what your blog topic covers.

    To have an area or market to blog around and to build a following and steady organic traffic first. A lot of people make the mistake of advertising all over their blog without them even getting any traffic. Don't let this happen to you.

    List your site with webmaster tools and see what google sees and you can capitalize on keywords.

    well to make money through blogging is easy. You have already passed the first hurdle which is selecting a niche. Since you can right about fashion and travel, those are big money maker. now you have to take it from personal and look it as a business. one way is to make sure that you are always exploring ways to grow your audience. You need to also understand that blogging takes time and is not what is going to get you rich overnight. but will commitment to providing valuable content, you could find products from porpular marketplace like clickbank, amazon, etc and but links in your post that will lead your audience to your affiliate website. When any of your audience makes a purchase you get paid. now imagine how many products links you could be adding to your post each week, with time, your audience would have reached the level where you would be consider an authority. then the money starts coming in non stop. You could flip the website after you have built your audience and already started making money from your blog. blogging is very interesting and rewarding but it takes lots of WORK. you can do it..please let me know if you have other questions or you need clarification. i am here to help

    Let's research google for Affiliate Marketing, you will know how people can earn money online. There're a ton of ways to make money with a blog/website. But if you only have contents without traffic, you cann't have money. There are a simple formula for affiliate marketing: Offers + Traffic ==> Conversion

      thats cool. IF you run into any trouble, feel free to ask and someone will always help you out. You have to be hungry for success to make it come true. keep digging and not giving up is the way to go. it will be tough in the beginning but after some time which depends on how consistent you are, you will then start seeing great results..

    There are plenty of ways to make money blogging. You can create and sell your own digital/physical products. You can make commissions by affiliate marketing. You can sell a service through your blog like freelance writing. (Obviously the service has to be related to your niche). You can sell ad space to people. You could use adsense.

    I offer a service/s through my blog, and that's where I get money.
    I do actually want to try ads too, but it is not that profitable.

    There's about 3 popular ways to make money off your blog

    1. Adsense (or related advertising platforms like InfoLink)

    How much you earn depends on your topic. Use Google Keyword tool for Adwords to determine the CPC (cost per click) on keywords you're interested in. Best idea to choose keywords where people are willing to pay a lot for.

    2. Affiliate Links

    Placing affiliate links on your blog. Visit affiliate marketing platforms like CJ Affiliates or Clickbank. Browse around and look for products that offer good commissions for promoting their products.

    3. Use an Email Marketing service Form to capture email addresses.

    Building an email list will allow you to have your own database of email subscribers.. which of course you can pitch your products, or promote affiliate products, over time.

    None of these will work unless you learn how to get massive targeted traffic to your website however.

    Key to everything would be traffic. The more traffic, the more money and potential money you can and will make.

    To list a few ideas:
    *Advertisements (in the form of banners)
    *Sponsored content (companies pay you to write on article on their behalf, with their name mentioned within it). For example, a travel blog might get a hotel or a popular tourist destination to sponsor an article about them.
    *Paid upgrades: Ad-removal among other benefits

    Really, if the traffic is there, relevant advertisers would want to be there.

    It is great that you have understood the power of blogging, instead of writing for others all these years, if you had written for your own blog, you might be earning 4-5 figures just by working one or two days in a month.

    That is also my question before I learned how to make money online. I use to buy ebooks, tools etc to learn how to do it and those materials just confused my. Stick to one training program that works. You can make money as an amazon affiliate, cj affiliate, clickbank, adsense. etc. Learn how to build your website first, learn seo, keyword research and build your content. Hope that helps.

    You can monetize your blog with different ways. The most popular is Google Adsense. Affiliate marketing pretends to be the best way to monetize a blog and you can earn thousands from it.

    That's great that you already have a blog that gets daily action! So all you have to do is start reviewing products with a link to the affiliate offer or even just recommend that they check whatever out. If they are one of your followers, they already know, like and trust you so it shouldn't be a problem at all!

    I hope that helps and good luck!

    I dont think anyone has mentioned the use of CURATED CONTENT

    If your blog is new-ish or if you are less of high level expert in your field, you should focus a lot on curated content, that is content that is your perspective on what is allready "out there" being posted, discussed and evalutated by people. The burden of creativity is just too overwhelming if you need or want to be 100% original in all that is written on your blog. Much less so when you bring your unique perspective to something that is important and in the debate allready.

    If you google curated content you will find a lot of tips on how to go about this.

    Good luck with your project!

    Hey buddy,


    I would suggest making money via affiliate program and using blog as your traffic source - write blogs that are somehow related to the product you are trying to promote and post a link of the company's online sales funnel at the end of each post.


    The idea here is that you will need to promote products that you truly find valuable so that you won't have to use fraudulent ways to attract your customers to check out the link. It should happen naturally once you truly believe that what you are selling will help other people. Just keep that in mind while picking a product to promote. Good luck

    There are different ways of making money from Blog
    1. Try with Google Adsense
    2.
    The Amazon Associates program allows you to earn a portion of sales when people click-through from your blog to Amazon.com and make a purchase.
    You only earn money when people buy something from the web giant and the amount you earn varies based on what people order and how many people purchase through your links.
    3.As your blog becomes more established, you can start to find ways to make more money through private ad sales and sponsorship.

    It is really easy to earn money from the blogging, if you have enough content & traffic. You can sell your own products if you have. Otherwise you can use the Adsense. It is the easiest way to earn money from the blogging. The Adsense authority will reviews your content & they will make Advertisement of other products related to your Niche & you will get pay a small amount of money from this advertisement. On the flip side you can use the Affiliate program, if you want. In this case you will need to apply to your niche related products from Affiliate site. The authority will give you a unique code for a product. You will need to put the code to your blog. when anyone will buy the product by using your code, you will get paid a commission. Thanks for your interest. Best of luck.
