5 Easy Ways to Get Big Money from a Blog Without Ads
The dream of every blogger is making money by putting thoughts online.
However, this is easier said than done. Many bloggers start out thinking the process will be simple enough only to see money trickle, instead of flood, to their coffers.
It seems the easiest way to earn money for a blog is with ads, but there are lots of problems with ads.
First, the biggest problem is ads that aren’t native to a site might contain malicious code unbeknownst to you.
Then the ad gets published and people have problems. This is a big issue and a reason why ads are not appreciated on a site. Ads are not the only way to make money, and with several non-ad ways to make money, it’s possible to earn money without resorting to ads.
Starting a blog is fairly simple. All you need is an idea and a platform to build the blog. After taking care of the basics, the next step is finding ideas to write a blog. The key is making sure the topics are relevant to the desired audience.
Having the blog topics focused and relevant is the secret sauce to earning money without ads. Focus on keeping the writing relevant; relevant content attracts repeat visitors, and the increasing clicks and time spent on the site only mean your earning power will increase without ever having to sell ad space.
After reading this post, you will know the 5 simplest ways to earn money without ads.
Relevance is key for affiliate marketing. If your blog is talking about widgets and you are in an affiliate network where widgets are sold, then you get a percentage of the widget sale. This is a simple way to make money on your blog site. The technical part of this is relatively easy to understand as well.
The first step in affiliate marketing is aligning yourself with an affiliate network. Visitors arrive at your site and are greeted with a link or affiliate ad. Once users click on the ad they head to the vendor’s site. At the vendor site, the purchases are made and a percentage of the margin goes back to your site.
Affiliate marketing is a volume game. The more unique visitors click onto your site the more profitable affiliate links are. Make sure you use proper SEO to increase your site’s attractiveness.

The greater your reach, the more people want your influence attached to their brand. Think Kylie Jenner – everyone in the makeup world wants her to endorse their products. Similarly, as you achieve greater influence businesses will be interested in leveraging your influence to push their products. Sponsored posts allow you to make money by lending your voice to a brand.
Sponsored posts are really simple. The company will pay upfront for you to write a post about their product. Essentially, you are writing an advertorial. This means creating a blog reading like a normal article. Some sponsored content is overt, and others are more subtle. Depending on writing style, either method works well.
The best part about the sponsored content is being paid upfront. Unlike other methods, there is no need to worry about traffic or clicks. You get paid based on your reputation as you’ve already acquired the cachet.
Creating engaging blog content means readers want more. A great way to give them more is the promise of giving readers a private audience with you. Membership forums are a great method because you control the conversation and get to see where your readers want you to go next. It’s easy to source new content using this method.
Membership forums can work on a monthly basis or a one-time fee. For example, if your forum is for small businesses, there will always be an audience. A one-time fee is a great way to get people investing in the forum and reaching out to friends or family. Word of mouth emanates from forums because people love access. Charging for access is a simple way to keep turning a profit – especially if your site gets traffic.
Use blogs to give readers 7/8’s of the solution and let them know they can find the final point within the forum.
For blog sites that have ecommerce attached, dropshipping is a great option for making money. The savings come from not having any inventory but having partnership agreements with warehouses. The warehouses take care of the shipping and inventory while your blog site has the credit card payment processing.
For blog sites detailing physical goods and services, dropshipping is particularly effective. Your margin is the difference between the price the customer pays and the wholesale price. Essentially, you are paying a per-item cost with your e-commerce store. This means you don’t have to purchase inventory ahead of time, instead your inventory model is a pay-as-you-go format. The upfront cost is lowered, and you are not operating out of a loss.
There are some bloggers this will not apply to, but if you are someone writing about different extensions for websites, it is in your best interest to develop a tool people can pay for and use. The best products come from using your blog to promote the product’s relevance.
The best way to sell any product is to speak about the problems it solves. For example, if you’re in the SEO business, then a product collating search data is extremely valuable. Position your product as the solution, people will purchase it. There are plenty of ways to promote the product as well – use the product purchase to discount entry into the members’ area as well.
Supporting a product is critical, as users begin to work with it be ready to offer support. If the product does not work as intended right away, customers will have great patience if you stand behind the product and help them. This provides great reputational benefit.
