6 Ways to Make Money Blogging

Thanks to the overarching influence the web has on our lives, there are many ways to make money over the web. But blogging remains to be among the best ways to make some extra cash and even have a successful online-based career. Fortunately, blogging takes many forms today. So, here are some ways to make money online through blogging.

1. Advertising
Advertising is and has always been among the most effective means of earning some cash through blogging. Companies are always willing to use an opportune situation to market their products to the right customers. 

Therefore, niche blogs offer them a perfect platform for promoting their products. For instance, when running a car blog, you might get paid to advertise car accessories like for example competition subwoofers or music systems on your blog, by manufacturers. 

Generally, advertising in blogs takes many forms. They include displaying ads, sponsorship of blog posts, paid newsletters or videos or podcasts, as well as freebies or cash to the blogger for mentioning a specific product or service.

2. Products
Who says posting blog posts is the only means to online dollars once you become a blogger? You can sell products as well. 

Ideally, digital products would be the perfect source of extra cash for you as a blogger. The best thing about selling products is that you can focus on products that are related to what you blog about. 

For instance, if you run a blog about cars, you can sell guides on car maintenance and the like. Such products are easier to sell in such a setting since your fans already consider you an authority in the field. 

In general, you can sell your own products or products made by others. A blog makes it easy to gauge what your readers are interested in and would be willing to pay for if such products or services were offered to them.

3. Affiliates
When making money as an affiliate blogger, you endorse products or services in exchange for a monetary compensation in form of a commission. 

This mode of making money as a blogger can be quite lucrative if the blog is large enough. For instance, a site like promotes Amazon products, which brings in an income through the Amazon affiliates program. 

The good thing about affiliate marketing is that you do not have to create products, which makes the income you get from this sort of blogging passive and stress-free.

4. Services
Your blog can be all about providing services for a price. For instance, you can run a review site whereby you get paid to review products. These products could be gadgets and the like. 

The point is, you can offer services for a fee through your blog. You can also offer a particular service to your readers for a fee. 

For instance, you can provide valuable information about something like sports betting to your clients in exchange for a subscription fee. Other services that can make money for a blogger include consultancy, training, and even design.

5. Membership
Selling membership to your blog can also be a fantastic way to earn as a blogger. Of course, before you can start making money from membership subscriptions, you will have to create a blog that has services or products worth paying for. 

For instance, if you run a financial blog, you can offer general advice to all your users, but then ask members who need personal advice to sign up for paid membership. The trick to getting people to pay for blog membership is to provide a service that general web would not give them; at least not without a price.

6. Video

Video is quite huge at the moment; thanks to an increased appetite for visual media. Additionally, leaps in technology have made the consumption of visual content much easier. 

Video is especially good if you sell training services. For instance, a workout blog is more convincing when the lessons are presented in form of step by step videos that users can download. 

The traffic the fans generate can offer great opportunities for advertisements. On the other hand, some of the video content might be available to premium clients, which means you can earn money through subscriptions as well. 

Currently, YouTube has become a popular hunting ground for bloggers who prefer to make money using video-based blogging; otherwise known as Vlogging.

Depending on your choice blogging niche, you can figure out the money-making blogging options that offer you the greatest earning potential. In fact, in some scenarios, you can use more than a single method to make money as you blog.

      Hi Ryan,
      I’ve struggled to monetize videos. I’ve tried both with YouTube videos and Facebook ads. I even have a Facebook ad running now with a video of me but so far, no takers. Thanks for writing and giving bloggers wishing to monetize using videos hope that it is possible.

        Hi Janice,

        There are a ton of ways to make money from blogging but I think both affiliate marketing and selling your own products are 2 of the best ways to make money from blogging.

        Affiliate marketing helps you make passive income even while you sleep but it takes a lot of time and you need to learn how to sales as well as the art of driving traffic from search engines like Google. The more visitors that you get from search engines to your websites the higher commissions you can make from affiliate marketing, it’s as simple as that.

        When it comes to selling your products you need to build credibility as an expert and become a goto guy in your industry. Only then you will be able to make as many sales as possible by also adding value to your target audience and customers.

        And I would like to ask you what’s your favorite preferred way to make money from a NEW blog.

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Anil,
          This is what happened to me:
          People linked to me which boosted my DA
          People wanted a link from someone with my DA
          They offered me money to publish their links and articles and tool and website reviews.
          After I did, people found my articles on the internet and wanted me to publish reviews of their tools and websites.
          It all started with my boosting my DA.

    Hey Tina!

    There are many ways to profit online. But, it all starts with a foundation of targeted traffic and email marketing. Once you have built this foundation you can then go ahead and start to help people by providing them with tools and products in exchange for money. This is simple internet marketing.

    I love affiliate marketing and also digital products. The main reason why I really like affiliate marketing is that I don’t have to deal with customer support issues and all of that when I’m promoting. I like to just promote and make money. Of course, you would make even more money by selling your own products. I also do that but I keep it as simple as possible.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Best regards! 😀

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Freddy,
      I’m disappointed to report I’ve extremely little success with affiliate marketing. I prefer to try to monetize by boosting my DA so people make me offers and finding sponsored writing opportunities. I wish I were able to monetize through affiliate marketing; passive income is easy.

  4. Paul

    To me that is working until now is google adsense, now it needs to improve its traffic to make more money.

    Thank you tina!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Paul,
      Thanks for writing last weekend. I am planning a post on Google Adsense since a lot of people don’t understand it. Are you saying you need a lot of traffic to use it?

  5. Lorraine Reguly

    You can also charge for link placements if you have built up your DA and PA. 😉
    That’s yet another way I have monetized my site, Wording Well!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Lorraine,
      Thanks for commenting last week. I agree with your tip’s validity. I have also monetized by charging for link placements. I am continuing to try to build up my DA by pointing links at my posts and guest posting. How have you built up your DA? Thanks for the ideas and again for the comments.

      • Lorraine Reguly

        I contribute to a lot of roundup posts, do guest posting, and interlink my posts. Plus, I drop comments on a few blogs every now and then.
        My DA and PA are pretty good as a result.

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Lorraine,
          I also contribute to roundup posts when I’m asked. How do you find roundup posts to contribute to? Thanks again for your help.

          • Lorraine Reguly

            I don’t look for them. People just email me and invite me! 🙂

    Hello Tina,

    These are amazing and sure-bet ways to make money as a blogger.

    Currently, I’m utilizing all these strategies except Videos. I’m yet to invest into my mini studio. But until then, let me keep consolidating on these ones.

    Thanks for sharing value on Janice’s blog.


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Emenike,
      Great to see you here! I am glad you like my guest author’s monetization tips. I have tried to monetize using YouTube but since nothing came of it to my knowledge, I didn’t pursue it. Thanks for writing us.

    Hi Tina,

    Very useful article. It is true that any one who starts blogging would sooner or later want to make money from it. It is only natural because blogging takes a lot of time and effort.

    Those who start blogging as a hobby have almost no idea of how to make money from it. Those who do have some idea are limited to one or two options. You have given a number of effective ways to make money.

    Thanks for sharing these valuable tips with us. Have a great day!


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Naveen,
      When I first started, I didn’t have a clue how to make money either. I even blogged about it.
      I am glad you feel my guest author suggested helpful money-making tips. Thanks for writing.

    Hey Janice,

    I think I will just have to bookmark your blog. I have my eyes on the part where you talk about video. Most people do not believe this but back in November 2016, I made three videos promoting a product that paid recurring affiliate commisions.To date, I have made $7000+ just from those videos. I still do make money but it has sort of died a bit. Rumour had it that the company would fold and that’s why I never made more videos. I wish I had, considering that it’s still around although fickle.

    The fact is, you can make money on YouTube. Are you a Photoshop pro? Great. Get a free screen recorder and start making Photoshop tutorials. Give it time and you will build a following and eventually money.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Holly,
