make money blogging

Have you been struggling to make money from your blog? Let’s take a look at some of the things you can do to improve your earnings this year.

Get better web hosting

Your blog income may be suffering as a result of slow loading pages.  The average visitor will only wait for a few seconds for any given page to load; if your pages are taking more than 5 seconds to load, you are at risk for losing visitors and income.  If you have already done all you can to do to improve the speed of your website, the next thing you should pursue is finding the optimal web hosting service.  The Best Web Hosting companies will always ensure that your site loading speed is the best it can be.

Mix and match a variety of advert options

For most blog owners, Google AdSense is the default option for site monetization. However, in some cases, this may not be enough. Unfortunately, not many know that it is legal to use Google AdSense with other forms of advertisement. Think about incorporating paid links and banner ads to supplement your site’s cash flow. Also, you can consider tapping into Pay-Per-Click, PayPerPost, and affiliate programs. As a standalone, these methods of advertisement may not bring in much income for you, but when combined, the results can be very rewarding.

Sell your own merchandise

Depending on your niche, you should be able to find merchandise that can be sold on your blog. If your blog is in the tech niche, for instance, you can sell small gadgets and accessories like power banks, USB cords, phone chargers, etc. If your funds permit, you can scale up to selling mobile phones and tablets. Combining e-commerce with blogging is one of the best ways to make money from your blog.


You can also make money on your blog by reviewing goods and services offered by other individuals. People looking for reviews on a particular product (that you have reviewed) will be directed to your website, increasing traffic and potential advert earnings. As your blog grows in popularity, you can make more money by charging businesses money for you to review their services.

Sell E-books

If you have positioned yourself as an expert in the niche of your blog, you can make money by designing and selling e-books on your blog. The e-book should be properly packaged and should be offered as an exclusive package to your blog visitors. Some of the highest earning blogs around the world today rely on this business model, so you can be sure it actually works.

Ask for donations

A simple donation button on your website can bring in more money for your blog.  However, this may not be a good choice for your blog if you already have a multitude of ads. Website visitors will only feel compelled to donate if they feel you really need the funds!

    I plan on going the ad route to start before I can bank in enough to offer products. In terms of e-commerce who and where would you suggest to start for this?

    I once tried that donation option and it did not go well mainly because of what you mentioned. Ppl have to feel you need need it along with you having supremely passionate content. If not they can actually turn against you for having the nerves of asking for a donation when they see ads on your site from big companies whether they realize its auto generated from Google Adsense or not.

        It would be an interesting study to see about how much a blog can make from just donations alone though.

        But out of all of these I’d say successfully promoting your own merchandise should be the ultimate goal 😉
