7 Ways To Make Money Blogging
[box type=”red”]Google Adsense[/box]
Google Adsense is a very popular means of making money online and also a great way to monetize your blog. This is one of the best PPC sites out of many all over the web.
Setting up your Google Adsense account is pretty simple and is very easy to install on your blog. When applying for your Google Adsense account, make sure that your blog is over 6 months old (I think that’s the accepted age limit for a site that wants to join the Google Adsense program).
In order to make it work for you, your blog is going to need some good amount of traffic if you want to collect a check every month.
If you already have Adsense on your blog, here is one of my post which will help you to increase your earnings: How To Increase Your Google Adsense Revenue
[box type=”red”]Affiliate Marketing[/box]
Affiliate marketing is one of the most common ways of making money online.
You don’t know what affiliate marketing is? Well affiliate marketing is selling products or services for someone or a company, and each sale that is made you are given a commission.
The great thing about affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to deal with the customers or the products and the services being sold. If there is a problem with products or services, then the website that you are affiliated with will handle and take care of this problem.
This is the fastest way to make money from your blog. This doesn’t require that you have lots of visitors like the Google Adsense to make good amount money. Once the affiliated product is targeted to your visitors and it appeals to them, then you can make a sale.
[box type=”red”]Selling Banner Advertisment[/box]
Selling advertising space on your blog has its ups and downs. Don’t get me wrong, this is also a good way to make money from your blog, but selling ads is actually giving your visitors another way to leave your blog.
I like making money online and I like keeping my blog visitors, so what should I do? Well I think of it as giving the advertiser a oppertunity to advertise his site on my blog for a fee.
But the only way that you are going to make money from selling ads is that you have to be getting lots of traffic on your blog. Face the fact, no one wants to purchase ads on a site which has a low amount of traffic. The person buying the ad space won’t get the traffic that he was looking for. Plus the price that you are selling it for should be taken into consideration.
[box type=”red”]Sell Your eBook[/box]
You might be saying, but I don’t have an e-book. Well my reply is, why not write one?
How? You can so this by turning your articles into a book. This is just like writing a blog post but with the book you want to make sure that you cover every points which links to the topic that you want to write about.
For Exapmle, you want to write a blog post on how to get blog traffic and how to keep it. You can easily write an e-book on how to do this. Write about what you should do to get the traffic, seo traffic, social media traffic, how to keep your traffic, etc. And that would be a great e-book to sell.
Selling an e-book is a very great way to make money of the book appeals to your readers need. Give your readers a reason why they should they should buy your e-book and tell them how the benefit greatly from it. Once this e-book is related to your blog then selling your book should be an easy task.

Once you start to see some great result in your blog then you can start to offer your coaching service to help others to get the same success that you have.
To make this work then you need to have proof to show to your visitors to make them believe that you can actually help them.
This also a great way to build relationships with your blog readers who want your services.
[box type=”red”]Create A Mailing List[/box]
Emailing marketing is one of the most powerful means of connecting and building relationships with whoever has subscribed to your list, and I must say that this is a very powerful money-making strategy.
But in order for you to make money from your mailing list then you have to put your opt-in box where your visitors can see it clearly. It might take some time for you to build your mailing list but it’s definitely worth it.
The fastest way to build up your mailing list subscribers is to use the . I am using it and I must say that it has worked well for me. So if you want to build your mailing list the fastest way, use to do so.
Another great way to build your list fast is if you offer something free to your visitors. Offer an e-book or something which will make them want to sign up.
[box type=”red”]Sponsored Reviews[/box]
Getting paid to write a review for a website or a product is another way to make money with your blog.
This is basically someone paying me to write a great review about a product that they are selling and state how it has helped me to make money online or how I became successful by using that particular product.
Some people might think that this is not fair because whoever is writing the review might not be honest in what they are saying, they have not used this product and is only writing the review because they are getting paid to write it. Well in writing reviews you should be honest and make sure what you have written in your review is true.
