Top 5 Ways to Make Money Blogging

by Taswir Haider in Make Money Online

Everyday hundreds of new blogs are creating and many bloggers are leaving the blogging profession as well. According to a study it was analyzed that 97% of bloggers leave blogging at a certain time while 3% stand in the crowd. The main reason for leaving blogging is the inability to make money from blogging.

But it needs to be remembered that blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. It requires effort, dedication and patience. We know that there are literally many ways to make money blogging but I also admit that all ways are not suitable for everyone.

5 Top Ways to Make Money Blogging for Beginners

1. PPC Advertising

PPC or Pay-per-click is the easiest way to make money blogging. Any blogger can easily apply for one such program and start earning immediately! The top player in this field is Google Adsense.

To be true that you cannot expect a high income through PPC from Day 1. It will eventually increase with the increase of your traffic and you should place your ads wisely to get the most click-through-rate from them. I suggest to continue experimenting by changing ad positions every week or month until you get the best combination.

Some Best PPC Advertisers are-

Google Adsense

Adbrite

Chitika

Bidvertiser

2. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is something that can help you to earn some good income per month. But to earn money from this part you need to build  credibility and trust at first. You need to establish your authority so that visitors believe in your words and spend on buying the products trusting you! But make sure that you promote the right products which you tested or at least personally feel good impressions on it.

3. Direct Advertising

You can get direct advertising in 2 ways:

One is to go to forums and other places and searching for the advertisers over there. This might be time consuming and difficult to find right advertisers but the benefit is that you do not loose any middleman commission in this process. If you are using such method, the premium OIOPublisher plugin (aff. link) can help you to take care of this without much hassle.

Another one is go to BuySellAds or similar sites where you will find many advertisers looking for the right publishers. The problem is that you need to have a good number of visitors to approve your site there. They normally pay monthly basis and your rate will increase based on the impressions your blog is receiving per month. So be patient and concentrate more on increasing visitors and when you reach that stage you may not need to look behind! Your site impressions will earn revenue for you.

4. Paid Reviews

Paid reviews, another good way to make money online blogging, are great as the advertisers will pay you for the reviews you are publishing. The basic system is that advertisers will provide their review requirements on paid review sites and you need to bid and if approve, publish the review on your blog.

You can earn $5 to even $100 per review. The higher the Pagerank, Alexa rank and number of visitors the more likely you will be qualified for higher bids.

Some of best paid reviews sites are-

Sponsoredreviews

Reviewme

Payperpost

5. Personal Products

If you are good to any topic, you can write a handy eBook of your own and sell them through your site to make money blogging from home. But to earn a handsome income from selling own eBook, you need to build authority first and give visitors a good reason to buy your eBook.

Or if you are a programmer, there are still many areas to cover in WordPress for which you can build a plugin. Just you need to brainstorm and find couple of ideas and then develop a good plugin for users.

If you would like to be more innovative and a step forward, you can arrange a poll in your blog using plugins like WP-Poll and ask visitors to vote on your options to gain the reader’s view. After you have done some research on visitor’s like and need, you can now choose which product is suitable for you to develop.

Conclusion

All of the above opportunity can combinely bring significant income per month from a single blog. I suggest to give effort for first 6 months to 1 year on building quality contents, visitors and reputations and after that your blog can be a money making machine for you that you do not need to worry about make money blogging ever!

Exactly Ranuka but to make good affiliate sales at first building credibility and authority is very much needed. Once it is built a very handsome income can be generated from this part alone.

Hi Taswir,
I tell you these are all great ways. I have made money with them but I want to point out that the best of all these is selling your own product. You can always make money any time by offering special discounts and promotions. What makes this even sweeter is the fact that anyone can have a product by outsourcing its creation.

Do you have any product of yours that you promote? I created CashDonator
