Putting Affiliate Links in Your Content
This is the best and most obvious way to monetize your blog. It’s very simple. All you have to do is sign up to an affiliate program in your blog niche and start promoting their products in your blog. When you sign up, you’ll be given a unique link that tracks your affiliate code so you make a commission every time someone clicks on your link and buys a product. A popular network that you can sign up for is Amazon Associates. Here, you’ll get a variety of products that’ll fit your niche.
Monetize with Ads
You can sign up for a Google Adsense account and place banners in your content or sidebar. This is the easiest way to make money with your blog because you really don’t have to do much, Google will take care of everything for you. For example, they will look for ads that match your content and on top of that, you won’t have to make direct contact with the ad’s owners.
Sell Digital Products
If you’re looking to make an extra stream of income with your blog, you can start selling digital products like ebooks and courses. It takes time to create these digital products but if you don’t have the time and you have some money, you can outsource the work to people on sites like Fiverr and Upwork. Once your digital product is ready, you can start selling it on your blog and you’ll make good money.
Selling Freelance Services
If your content is good, you’ll find people emailing you to produce similar content for them. This is great because you can start selling your freelance services. If you’re not getting such emails yet, you can send cold emails to other companies, blogs, and content producers asking to produce content for them for a price. It will take time and patience but eventually, you’ll get someone who will accept your offer.
To make money blogging, you first have to choose the right niche. You have to remember that not all niches can be monetized and other niches have the potential to make more money than others. Therefore, you have to find a profitable niche that has a lot of demand.
