11 Ways To Blog For Money 

 


 

Many bloggers want to find ways to generate an income from their blogs. Following are Eleven tips to monetize your blog and start bringing in some money from your blogging efforts.


1. Advertising

Including advertisements on your blog is the most obvious way to derive an income from your blogging efforts. Ads can come in the form of text links or banner ads, and advertising options are available that you can easily tap into through pay-per-click, pay-per-post and affiliate programs online. Google AdSense, Amazon Associates, eBay Affiliates and Pay-Per-Post are just a few of the most common advertising programs available to bloggers.

2. Merchandise

Another simple way to monetize your blog is by selling merchandise through a service such as CafePress who will work with you to create custom items for you to sell through your blog.

3. Reviews

Bloggers can make money by reviewing products, events, businesses and more through blog posts.

4. Ebooks

A great way to bring in some revenue on your blog is by writing an ebook and offering it for sale through your blog. Ebooks are particularly successful for bloggers who have positioned themselves as experts in their fields and advertise their ebooks as additional or exclusive information just for readers of their blogs.

5. Donations

Many bloggers add a donation button to their blogs asking readers to make a monetary donation to keep the blog alive. Donations are also solicited with clever taglines such as, "If you like this blog, why not buy me a cup of coffee?" The donation link leads the reader to another website such as PayPal where the individual can easily make their donation.
 Blogging for money isn't particularly difficult any more. You don't have to be famous or even have huge traffic (although how much money you make from your blog will depend on both of these factors to some extent). Get blogging for money by using one or more of these seven ideas.

6. Blogging for money using advertising programs.
These are more advertising program options for blogging for money than ever before. Here are just four of the ever-expanding possibilities for making money from your blog by putting 
 Besides placing ads on your blog pages themselves, there are also programs for RSS advertising such as Pheedo.


7. Blogging for money using affiliate programs.
With affiliate marketing, a company agrees to pay you a commission for helping to sell their products. Visitors see the company's ad on your Web pages and, if they click through to the company's Website and do a particular thing, you'll get paid. The particular thing the visitor has to do varies; some affiliate programs pay per click while others pay per lead or even per sale. These are four of the biggest (and most established) affiliate programs on the 'Net that you can use for blogging for money:
Blogging for money via a company sponsorship. Blog sponsorship is a growing trend as more businesses realize the popularity of blogging and the potential marketing reach of bloggers. Company sponsorship deals appear to range from obvious "advertising" blogs that are squarely focused on a company's product(s) through adding a company's name, logo and brand to an existing blog ("sponsored by...").
The main problem with this way of blogging for money is that you have to be known already (and have enough traffic) to attract sponsorship.


9. Get hired by a company to be blogging for money.
Many businesses would love to have blogs, but just don't have anyone currently on staff who has the time and the talent to put a blog together and keep it going. You could be the answer and make money from a blog in the process. The trick to landing such a gig is finding the businesses that want/need the services and persuading them that you're the blogger they need; diligent research and some cold calling will probably be needed unless you already have a high profile and a track record that will bring the businesses calling.

10. Freelance blogging for money.
Networks of blogs appear to be springing up all over the 'Net, some of which are looking for people to write blogs and are willing to pay for it. Payment models vary but a fixed monthly payment in exchange for a specified number of blog posts seems to be most common.

BloggerJobs.biz is one example of a website that specializes in posting blogging for money opportunities.
About.com's Freelance Writing site is a great place to look for freelance writing opportunities of all kinds, including blogging gigs. 10 Things to Know about Content Sites is a good article to read before you start reading through job postings.

11. Create a blog to advertise a specific product/service.
Blogs are fast becoming the trendy alternative to the classic salesletter site. In this case, the format is the only real change; the message is the same. Typically, the pitch is woven into as many blog entries as possible - or even used a tagline to every blog entry.
Jim Kukral's 99 Ways to Blog for Business blog is a good example of a blog designed to move a product (in this case, his strategy guide for creating blogs for businesses).

11. Blogging for money by selling intellectual property such as ebooks, telecourses or consulting services, through your blog.
This idea is closely related to the previous way of blogging for money. The difference is that in this case the intellectual property you're selling is just part of or incidental to the blog you're writing; it's not the raison d'etre for the blog. For instance, you might have a blog about beekeeping and be selling an ebook about how to build a mason bee house on your pages.

The Secret to Blogging for Money
No matter which blogging for money model you choose, or even if you choose a combination of ways to make money from your blog, there's still one secret to success; you need to be able to write well and engage your readers. That's how you build an audience, and of course, the bigger your audience, the bigger your chances to make some serious money blogging.
