If you did not start a blog yet, then read our step-by-step guide How to start a blog here. If you have a blog, then it’s time to make money from it, so let’s get started.
The easiest way to monetize your blog is by putting ads on your blog. Google AdSense is an ad network by Google. Once you get approved by Google AdSense, then you’ll be able to place ads on your blog.
You need to add their short HTML code on your blog, and Adsense will do all hard work for you. Once you add the shortcode on your blog, AdSense starts showing ads on your blog that relevant to your blog content.
When your ads getting clicks, then you will get rewarded for every click.
Google AdSense is the best option for new bloggers to monetize their new blog, but don’t stick with AdSense for a long time. If your blog is getting a decent amount of traffic, then switch to a premium ad network like AdThrive or Mediavine.
So you’ll get higher CPC than Google AdSense, I will talk about premium ad networks later in this article.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to monetize a blog, most of the bloggers generating a delightful revenue from affiliate marketing.

Although Google AdSense is one of the best ways to monetize a blog, but do you know there are some premium ad networks too that give you much higher CPC (Cost-Per-Click) than Google AdSense. As I said above, don’t use Google AdSense for a too long time, because of their Cost-Per-Click is much lower than a premium ad network.
So once your blog is getting a good amount of traffic, then switch to a premium ad network that increases your ad revenue 2 or 3 times than Google AdSense.
Many bloggers create their digital products, such as eBooks or blueprints, and selling on their blogs. Selling digital products is one of the best ways to generate passive income from your blog.
Having an own product is more profitable than promoting other people’s products (Affiliate Marketing) because, if a purchase made, then all profit goes to your pocket. You can easily control the price of the product for great results.
Select a topic that relevant to your blog niche, then create your eBook. Design it properly or hire someone on Fiverr who will do the job done for you, then promote your eBook on your blog.
Most of the people seeking for the whole package of information about any specific topic, rather than finding pieces of the puzzle.
If your blog niche is something about that where you can create an online course for your audience, then create an online course. Promote your course on your blog and make money from it.
Example – If you blog about health and fitness, then you can create a course like weight loss training or getting six-packs training.
Sponsored posts are one of the great ways for bloggers to make money with their blogs. If your blog has sufficient traffic and a highly engaging audience, then there are many sponsors paid you for writing about their products and services.
Bloggers are making a decent amount of money for just a single sponsored post they write.
When you’re writing sponsored posts, keep in mind to be transparent to your readers, tell them about your sponsorship. That will helps you to maintain your goodwill with your blog readers.
If you have good knowledge about anything, then you can sell them as your services on your blog.
Numerous bloggers list their services on their blog, like – Graphic designing, Blog writing, Social media managing, Web designing, and much more.
Think about what services you can provide through your blog, list your services on your blog. When someone needs your services, they just easily purchase from your blog.
Paid reviews are another great way to monetize your blog. Like sponsored posts, you get paid by writing reviews about products.
Make sure to write reviews about products that relevant to your blog niche. If your blog is all about fitness and you are writing a review of the new MacBook, that’s not works.
So make sense and write only reviews about which product that is relevant to your blog niche.
If you have some extra to give it your audience, then start a membership program. In the membership program, you give your members some premium services such as podcasts, exclusive content, one-on-one training, etc.
Something valuable for your readers, so they willing to join your membership program.
