A lot of bloggers want to make money from their blog but without proper blog monetization then it’s not possible to do so.

In order to make money blogging then you have to monetize your blog so that it is able to make money and not disturb the environment that you have already created for your blog. The key to doing that is proper blog monetization. Without proper blog monetization then your traffic might end up leaving your blog, so your opportunities for making money would be gone as well.

Each and every blog has the potential of making money. So don’t give up blogging just yet if you find that you haven’t been making money from your blog.

In this article, I am going to give you some awesome tips on how you can monetize your blog and actually make money from it.

You Need Traffic To Make Money

make-money-onlineMost times I get emails or messages from friends on Facebook who are bloggers asking “how to make money from their blog” or “why isn’t their blog making any money”.

I never normally answer those questions with an answer. I answer their question with a question and the question that I ask is “how many traffic does your blog have?”.

The reason why I ask how many traffic does their blog have is because you can’t make money if no traffic is on your blog, and most times they will reply with answers saying they hardly have any traffic at all.

There are tons of site on the internet claiming that you can make money from your site with the traffic that you already have and all you have to do is buy the product that they are promoting to use make money from the traffic that you have.

Most of these products don’t even work and most of these new bloggers are eager to make money they end up wasting money on a product that does nothing for them.

You don’t need those type of get rich quick products to start making money from your blog. The only thing that you need to make money from your blog is traffic. Once you have traffic on your blog then the possibilities for making money on your blog are endless.

I have written 2 awesome articles on how you can get traffic to your blog.

  1. AMAZING: The Easiest Ways To Get FREE Targeted Blog Traffic!
  2. How To Prepare Your Blog For Incoming Targeted Traffic?

Read those two posts listed above (if you haven’t done so as yet) if you want to make money from your blog, because without traffic then you won’t make any money.

Use Affiliate Programs In Your Niche

nicheMost probloggers make money from their blog with affiliate marketing and this is one way they make a living from their blog.

You can have tons of success with affiliate marketing if you promote programs which are in your niche.

Why is this the case?

This is because your blog readers may not be interested in other stuff which aren’t in your niche.

Lets say that your blog is about technology tips, if you write an article promoting a product which a person could use to help relieve back pain then you would never sell a single product. This is because the audience that you have built up is interested in technology tips which your blog is centered around.

If you promote the latest gadgets on your blog the you are more likely to make some money promoting this type of product because this the type of things which interest your readers.

Don’t Cluster Your Blog With Ads

clustered adsA great way to monetize your blog is to not fill it with ads.

A lot of times why some bloggers fail to make money from their blog is because they over promote ads on their blog. Header section of their blog is filled with ads, sidebar loaded with banners, content section clustered with ads and footer section with too much ads.

Just image a blog looking like that. Do you think that this blogger would successful make money from his blog looking all clustered like that?

I hardly think so.

When monetizing your blog, the neater and more presentable it looks then the more chances you have of making money from your blog.

Promote Products Or Services You Use

Earn-Money-Promoting-Other-Peoples-ProductsAnother great way in which you can monetize your blog is if you promote products and services that you use.

If you work hard on your blog to make it successful then you can make money by promoting the things which you use. Once your blog is built up and you have established your brand then no doubt your blog reads would be eager to know how you did it.

Once you write a blog post saying that you have used a particular plugin or service to help boost your blog, your blog readers would love to try it on their blog as well.

Make Money Offering Services

make money onlineLots of money have been made offering services, and you don’t necessarily have to own a blog to offer services.

But if you own a blog then more money can be even made offering services.

Two services which can be offered as bloggers which definitely makes money are writing services and free blog installation services.

This is because lots of new bloggers are born each day and most of them aren’t sure how to setup a new blog. I have done this service before and it works like a charm in making money for me.

You might be wondering how is doing free blog installation going to get me paid.

Well not to worry about that. HostGator pays me.

Yep! What I require for the new blogger to do is to purchase a hosting from HostGator through my affiliate link and that is all it takes for me to start working on their blog. Once purchase is made through my affiliate link then HostGator will pay me a commission for referring a person to use their hosting.

As for writing services this can be a great money maker. By becoming a freelance writer then you will make tons of money. This is because new bloggers or existing bloggers, online companies and business will pay you to write contents for them.

You can write and sell blog posts, or you can get an email from a visitor of your blog requesting your write a review of something that they want to promote.

I have done both of these services and they have worked well for me. Trust me, this is an easy way to rack up over $600 per month.

Try it on your blog and see how things go for you.

    Monetization section is very important for every blogger as Newbies bloggers always make this mistake by filling their blogs with lots of Adverts. I think that’s a big mistake which i have also done in my past.
    When we come to Monetization, Adsense Affiliate system and paid services are the best ways.

    If you are a beginner, Then first thing you do is to decide how you will make money. Concentrate and work on that one money making way instead of doing all crappy things together. I do affiliate marketing with my blog and doesn’t go back of any other method.

    Great way of money making is by utilizing our skills, if we are good at something we should never do it for free. We can use our skills for making money online as well as offline.

    After monetizing your blog, then, of course, traffic is the name of the game. The problem, how to get big traffic. So far, that has eluded me, and all the SEO, backlink comments and social media submission haven’t done it.

    Hey kharim,

    Hello Kharim,

    Its extremely sad that most bloggers desire to make money online and somehow decide to divorce the all important issue of traffic. But, the sad reality is that you’ll never make any serious money online if you’ve got very poor traffic.

    You may however get the traffic…then attempt to over monetize it. This is extremely also sad: once your visitors realize that you are simply after the money and are not really concerned about the value bestowed, be prepared to see them go, just as easily as they came!

    I do that a lot. Do you?

    Hi Kharim,

    I think the best way to find out the profitable program is by testing, you need to test different programs and stick to the one that best works for you, you also need to have a targeted traffic that is interested in what you are offering. Thank you so much for sharing your tips.

    There are whole lots of ways to monetize a blog successfully. However, every blog and the blogger should apply that which fits into the business model. What works for one blog may not work for another.

    While the ideas shared in this post can be applied by any blog, newbie bloggers are at better advantage to apply the information.

    Kharim, You are right that traffic is the key for the success of any blog. You will be able to earn from your blog only if your blog has high visibility and lots of traffic. Affiliate marketing and Google ad-sense are the most effective ways of earning money through blog.

    Anyways thanks for the awesome post.

      Hello Samaira,

      I agree with your point on having traffic as well to make your blog successful. One should crave for targeted traffic if they want their blog to be successful.

      I have done affiliate marketing and Google adsense and both are working well for me.

      Thanks for the comment.

      Hi Jim Flinn,

      I agree that blogging is one of the easiest methods in making money online. One your blog attracts a lot of people then thats all it needs.

      The only hard part is bringing in the crowd of people. But it is not impossible. Once a person writes on a regular basis and promotes on a regular basis then he can become successful in making money from his blog.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Another problem is bloggers often dont write what their audeince would like to read about. In most cases this happens on young blogs, when an author dont know YET what would be interesting for his readers.

    • Reply

      Hey Michael,

      You are very much right on that point. If a blogger doesn’t know what type of content that his readers are interested in then the blog will end up being a failure.

      In order to have a successful blog then we have to publish articles which generates interest.

      That way the people will stick around on that blog and once it has traffic then money can be made.

      Thanks for the awesome comment pal.

      You are so right about that point you made in your comment. More traffic you have the more advertisers your blog will attract.

      I have made tons of money from advertisers.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Most people don’t make much money because they over monetize their websites and make peanuts from each advertising network, I’ve read one article of yours recently Kharim and you said “stick with one advertising network”, that’s AdSense I think you said and you simply right, also monetization can be done through affiliate marketing without hustle and your readers are more likely to enjoy reading and make a purchase to your recommendation.

    That’s business and it’s working! See you next time Kharim, regards from I. C. Daniel

    Quick note: why you don’t have a favicon? (or is just on my end, but I doubt)

    • Reply

      Hey Daniel,

      You are so right about that and over monetization is never the key. Some people think that putting a ton of ads on their blog will help them to make money. But that’s not the case.

      My favicon was working, not sure where it went. Will fix it.

      Thanks for the comment pal.
