How Can You Make Money From Blogging?
Thinking about becoming a blogger?
Maybe you already have your own blog and you want to learn how to monetize it as much as humanly possible.
Guess what, it’s easier than you think, there are a bunch of ways that you can go about it.
So, how can you make money from blogging you ask?
This guide will show you EXACTLY how you can do that with our top 5 PROVEN ways of making money online with blogging.
Read until the end as I reveal the most lucrative way of generating a full-time income that has made successful bloggers A TON of money.
1. Pay Per Click and CPM Advertising
PPC or Pay Per Click ads are one of the most common ways for bloggers to monetize theirwebsite.
When a visitor sees your content and decides to click on an advertisement that you have posted somewhere within your site, that’s when you get paid.
The key factor here is having a lot of daily visits to be able to make a decent buck.
CPM is cost per thousand impressions or in other words when 1000 people view your ad, you get paid a fixed amount.
There are a lot of different networks that you can use to place ads all over your website but the most commonly used one is Google Adsense.
2. Private Ads
There is a lot of flexibility with private ads because you have the option to negotiate a price that is suitable both for you and the privateadvertisers that have made contact with you.
Another good way of monetization is writing posts for them.
They set up their conditions and you, of course, put out your price.
Upon mutual agreement, the real fun begins and usually, both parties are happy with the outcome.
You can even charge fees for putting links of your advertisers within your content. That’s pretty decent if you ask me.
3. Create Quality Content & Become an Authority
By creating high-quality content that is helpful and full of genuinely honest, exciting and fulfilling information, your readers will begin to respond to your posts in a very positive way.
There are a lot of money making opportunities if you manage to do that right.
If you are healthy foods blogger (this is just an example) and you continuously post different topics involving the healthy foods niche, then people with similar interests will be naturally drawn to your content and will begin to read, share, enjoy and most importantly TRUST your blog posts.
That’s when you become a respected authority in the healthy foods industry (in this case scenario).
Creating high quality content is the MOST important thing that you need to focus on.
Only then will you start seeing incredible results and more and more people will be visiting your website on a daily basis and that’s what your end goal should be in order to take advantage of the above-mentioned ways of monetization, isn’t it?
At the bottom of this article, I am going to show you where you can find out more information about high-quality content writing. Trust me, it’s well worth the read.
4. Affiliate Marketing
My personal favorite. By including affiliate links of other people’s products and services to your articles, you have the opportunity to earn a commission fee.
They can vary in terms of percentage but it’s most definitely one of the easiest yet most effective ways to make money online.
Affiliate Marketing has made bloggers a lot of money over the years and it only keeps on growing as more and more businesses realize the true power that affiliates bring to their business.
If you don’t know what affiliate marketing is then I suggest that you read my article about How To Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing Here.
It’s possibly the best and most promising way for a blogger to start generating revenue.
How do I know this you may ask? Well, the answer is pretty simple.
Because I AM a blogger. Here’s a PRO TIP for you.
Don’t limit yourself to just one thing. For example, don’t just go and do PPC and private ads.
All of the mentioned techniques for becoming a successful blogger should be used together, in my mind, they are essential pieces of a big puzzle that need to be put together.

Thank you for sharing the top 5 ways of making money online from blogging.
Affiliate Marketing is definitely the best making money business model amidst the booming of online shopping over the years. Merchants are recruiting more and more affiliates nowadays in order to stay competitive in the market. Although affiliate marketing is a lucrative industry to pursue, many affiliates still failed within 6 months period. What do you think of the main cause for such failure?
Yes, I agree that creating SEO contents will attract organic traffic but it takes a long time to see significant results. Is it advisable to use paid traffic such as Google & Bing Ads, FB Ads, Solo Ads, etc to monetize our website?
Just like everything else in life, you need to work hard if you want to achieve great results. Affiliate Marketing is something that anyone can learn but not everyone is willing to work towards mastering it.
The main reason why most people fail is simply because they give up. It can take you two months to master affiliate marketing or it could take you twelve. As long as you don’t give up and trust the whole process you will achieve results.
And to answer your second question, paid traffic can be classified as riskier than free traffic because if you don’t know what you are doing you can end up losing money.
But at the same time, it can also be a faster way of achieving results. I would recommend starting out with learning how to generate free traffic and then progressing into paid traffic as by then you would probably have a better understanding of the whole concept.
With blogging, there is no need to put your eggs all in one basket. Heck you don’t even have to have just one basket. You get to write what you are interested in, even if the people living with you aren’t interested in what you are. You always have an audience, an entire world is your audience.
It is just as easy as you describe, and you did an awesome job describing what Blogging is all about. Thank you for your post.
Thank’s for your feedback, It’s much appreciated.
