  • Best way to make money out of blogs is to setup google Adsense to your blog. Adsense are advertisements that appear on the side of the blog or website. When users click on the ad you make money on each click.

      Trying to earn money from Adsense on a brand new blog that is about health is probably one of the worst ideas.

      If i were you i would probably try some affiliate marketing first.

      Adsense can be good but you are not optimizing you earning potential if that is all you do.

      Add some Affiliate Products, Optin Form etc..

    Best way for earning from blog site is google adsense. If you set this you may earn.
    On the other hand you may earn from affiliate marketing.

    Everyone is repeating the same thing...adsense, adsense, adsense....that's great, BUT, that's not the main component to a successful online business/blog. You MUST first structure your content based on the niches you're targeting and write REAL, quality content, if you're not comfortable writing high quality articles, then I'd recommend hiring an experienced writer...do NOT take shortcuts.

    Higher quality content will position your site as an authority, and also, it'll be an asset if you decide to sell it at a later point. DO NOT settle for low quality content, pay a little more and you'll thank yourself years later

    The best way to generate money out of a blog is through placement of ads on the blog after it starts getting decent traffic.

    There are different types of ads you can place on your blog; adsense ad, banner ad etc. The easiest way to get these ads is by joining an ad network for which there are several.

    AdSense is great. If you do it properly, you may be able to buy a $1 burger at McDonalds a week. But you need to do it right.

    Irony aside, to me, personally, the most profitable source of income has been offering services and creating a product. Your blog is an entry point to your other content. Ads are just a small extra income unless you have a humongous amount of traffic.

    First find out what demographic you want to target. As you said you want to start up a health blog which is good because you can approach this subject in different ways. Follow these steps:

    1. Write content that you're passionate about and can generate a lot of traffic

    2. Use that traffic to convert them into email subscribers.

    3. Send them stuff which is innovative and keeps them interested.

    4. When you get the trust, start selling them products which can be yours or someone else's .

    You can make some serious money if you focus on the last point. There are people who sell nutritional stuff that doesn't require strict FDA approval . You can sell those products in exchange for some fees. But before you get into this whole selling thing , make up a blog that explains that benefits of certain vitamins for a human body without mentioning any intention to sell the product right away. This will show your audience that you're not just a greedy salesman. After that introduce them to the product in the end and show how the product competes well with others in the market.

    Cheers

    1st decide what's the topic you can write enough about and don't feel boring or have passion. Then keep posting tips & guides about that on your blog and have adsense or CPA offers within your posts for monetization. Hope it will help. Cheers!

    For the health and wealth niche that you want to blog on, building a list should be your top priority and you should promote affiliate products as you will be making more money than using AdSense or other AdSense alternatives.

    Apart from having a blog, you should have a funnel setup that will convert blog visitors into affiliate product buyers. A funnel is necessary in today's blogging success.

    Adsense ROI sucks. I wouldn't put it on my blog. When I was new to blogging I did. Until I realized how bad the return was. Someone asked John Chow what he thought about adsense. He called it online welfare.

    Do you what you want but I won't do it.

    There is no 'best' way to monetize a blog. Every marketer is different. Not every form of monetization works for everyone.

    You will need to learn by experience as to what 'resonates' and works for you.

    You can have an ebook that you give away. Provide value and then sell them on something that your target niche needs. Also you can use ad sense ads in your site.

    If you have the confidence, the best thing to offer up front is coaching.

    You can charge much higher prices for your time and you don't need to worry about creating a product up front.

    There are online personal trainers charging anywhere from $100 - $1000+ for customized diet and workout plans. If you get too bogged down you can outsource this and create a business system freeing up up your time.

    You also don't need as much traffic with this strategy. And the premium prices will allow you to buy traffic to send to a blog squeeze page if you prefer.

    Blog content or some sort of freebie will warm up your prospects to your expertise. You can even offer a lower priced product up front.

    It all comes down to testing and not being afraid of getting your hands dirty.

    Whoever is advising you to set up an adsense account is living 10 years behind. Here's the fastest 21st century approach:
    1. Create a lead magnet. Be it a report or a check-list.
    2. Grab email addresses through your lead magnet and build up an email list. Use auto responders.
    3. Follow the Ben settle's one email a day keeps freebie seekers away rule. Pitch your product or affiliate product in every email you send. Make sure your emails give the right of "No" in the prospect's hands.
    4. Scale your list.

    Repeat and roll.

    Thanks

    My suggestion is to build a blog focused on solutions for a niche you have personal experience on so you can share ideas that come out of experience and not just re-hashing web content. Post the most helpful solutions you can using both posts and videos. Write a short checklist or guide to about one problem to help you build an e-mail list and then make money thru affiliate marketing by sharing 'relevant and effective solutions' to your audience.

    First of all it's nice that you're thinking about starting a blog but I think you're going about this the wrong way. Your main objective is to make money with your blog, that's fine but why would anyone go to your blog? Think about that...

    You need to provide lots of value mostly for free
    You need to build an audience by leveraging other blogs and social platforms that are relevant to the content on your blog.
    Build a relationship with your audience and the money will follow only when you provide what your audience asks of you.

    You WILL NOT make a decent income using adsense un;less you have 50k+ visitors a month.
    Your best bet would be to promote a product that you own or as an affiliate.

    The best way to make money with a blog is writing product reviews and offering bonuses to entice people to buy through your affiliate link. Mike from Maine makes good money doing this but he uses a YouTube channel instead of a blog.

    Hi there.
    Health and Wealth is a very good niche but it is too competitive, Its not impossible but Id start with a good domain selection, very catchy and not too long name.
    I like to make my sites an authority in their niche posting 20-25 very informative articles or videos that attract peoples attention. Do not forget to use Wordpress, it is the best for user usability and for seo purposes.
    Once your first 25 articles are on the the website apply to Google Adsense, it is the best monetization method for starters.
    About the promotion, use social media such as Facebook fan page and instagram (My Favorite). There are plugins to automate this process updating social media channels every time you post any article in the website, also same plugin serves as a way to know better your competitors. I use Social Rabbit for that purpose. I told you that my favorite is Instagram because I can find accounts with millions of followers in the same niche I am and propose the owner to do a SHOUTOUT to promote my website and they usually charge me 25-50$ per shoutout. In my experience, it converts very well to have lots of followers and traffic to my sites at a very reasonable cost.
    Also dont forget to put a Squeeze Page with a very targeted lead magnet in your site so you can start building your list. I like to do this strategy because as we say Money is in the List. It could be very helpful if you have for example 10.000 Subscribers and you want to promote affiliate offers or own products in your list. You will make money very fast with this. But building a list is a process that takes months to have a reasonable list size. But my last advise is Never Give Up, Making money online is not easy but it is achievable if you are well organized and open minded to learn new things every day.
    Good Luck.

    The best way to use your blog is for list building. You don't just want transient potential customers to come and go... then you aren't building anything... Give them your content, and instead of trying to sell to them, try to opt them in instead... This way you have captured that visitor and you can sell to them time and time again. You can send them back to your site time and time again...You can have a have a traffic surge anytime you want... you build your own traffic source when you build a list. Don't focus on making money with your blog right now, focus on opting people into your list through your blog instead... you can always sell something in your emails. What is more valuable 2 sales out of 200 visitors... or 50 options who you can sell to over and over again for years to come...? To make selling your first priority as opposed to opting people in, is stepping over a dollar to pick up a dime. Honestly. Focus on optins.

      You're correct. Your subscribers have shown interest in your content, so mail them regularly, if content is good enough they'll not hesitate to share them, reaching more people organically via socials, that's the main advantage of email marketing, not sending affiliate offers in the first place. You can grow your user-base organically with a solid dedicated list.

    Give value to your visitors. If you do this, the rest will slowly take care of itself.
    If you give value, your visitors will keep returning, it will also encourage new visitors.

    Eventually once you have a steady stream of traffic, add some type of ads to your site (adsense, cpa offers, etc)

    But... start by offering value and building your audience.

    You could create a freebie, like an e-book in your niche, and give it away to people subscribing to your email list. Then you can email your list every day, or every second day, providing them with value content, link to your blog or your videos and promote good quality affiliate products that you will make money of.

    The best way to make money from your blog is to write seriously good content.
    Both a mix of in depth posts--and list type posts.

    You know, the top ten best foods to eat for weight loss.

    Then, once you have some good traffic coming in,

    Test, test, test, and test some more.

    Start with adsense, and if that does not work--try building a list by giving away something of value--and make it have real value--not just some plr that you bought for cheap.

    If that doesn't work--try amazon or clickbank or cpa offers.

    Keep testing until you find the one thing that coverts well.

    Hope this helps.
