Top 5 Ways to Make Money Blogging

There are many ways to make money blogging. But don’t try to apply all those methods for your blog because all those methods aren’t suitable for your blog. So if you want to make money from your blog, first of all do a research to find a suitable way for your blog.

5 Ways to Make Money Blogging

Ways to Make Money Blogging

1. PPC Advertising Networks

PPC advertising networks are the most common way to make money blogging. It is one of the easiest ways to make money. But remember that if you don’t have at least 500 visitors per day you can’t get a decent profit from using PPC advertising networks.

Google Adsense is the most popular PPC advertising network. You can try it, and also Yahoo Bing Ad Network, Chitika, Clicksor are also popular PPC advertising networks.

If you have a hope to use any PPC advertising network please read their terms and conditions very carefully. If not your account will be banned very recently if you have done something against to their terms and conditions.

2. Affiliate Marketing

According to Wikipedia,

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts. The industry has four core players: the merchant (also known as ‘retailer’ or ‘brand’), the network (that contains offers for the affiliate to choose from and also takes care of the payments), the publisher (also known as ‘the affiliate’), and the customer. The market has grown in complexity to warrant a secondary tier of players, including affiliate management agencies, super-affiliates and specialized third party vendors.

Most internet marketers introduce affiliate marketing as the best method to make money from a blog. Some affiliate marketers make more than 10000$ per month via affiliate marketing. But don’t think that it is an easy task. They didn’t make such money from the beginning of their blogging life. They achieved that target after 4-5 years experience and after doing hard work on their blog.

3. Direct Banner Advertising

Direct banner advertising is also a good method to make money from your blog. Mainly you can get following benefits from direct advertising,

1. You have full permission to set ad spaces and set charges.
2. You can get money as soon as anyone buys an ad space.
3. 100% revenue for you (If you use third party service they will get a commission).

But if it is hard to find direct advertisers for your blog you can use a third party web site like BuySellAds.

4. Writing Product Review

Many internet related products are created daily. They may be eBooks, WordPress themes, WordPress plugins, SEO tools, etc. Those products owners like to promote those products using this method. After contacting those product owners you can write a review about those products and you can get a decent amount of money from them (Price manly depends on your blog audience).

Ex: Shoutmeloud blog has millions of monthly visitors and that blog earns 500$ for one review.

5. Selling Own Products

When talking about ways to make money blogging you can’t forget “selling own products”, because it is one of the best ways to make money from your blog. Most popular bloggers like Darren Rowse also make money from selling eBooks. So why don’t you try this?

You can sell products like your own eBooks, your own themes, etc.

Final Word

Now you know about 5 ways to make money blogging. But you should have decent traffic to make money from these methods. So at first, build a good audience for you blog and then try to apply these methods.

So you can share what methods you use to make money from your blog as a comment.
