in #blogging2 years ago

If you think that bloggers start their own blogs just to express what they have in mind, then you are wrong. These past several years, bloggers have been making decent money by just sharing what they feel and posting their ideas. A lot of these bloggers are just like you and the people around you, and it is really surprising to see that they are earning by just writing and creating content that they love. If you also want to know how to earn money from your blog, here are some ideas which you can venture in.

  1. Advertising

Businesses and companies will do all that they can in order for their products to be exposed and be known to their potential customers. If you are doing a gardening blog, garden and planting companies may want to advertise their products to your blog. Here are some ways in which you can integrate advertising into your blog.

  • Displaying ads – you can put advertising graphics in any area of your blog.
  • Reviews/Giveaways – Companies can give you with a free product and even a nice sum of money so that you can make a review and describe their product to your readers.
  • Sponsored posts – companies can pay you to write an article that makes their product stand out

Advertising in your blog is very easy to start. However you will need a lot of traffic so that you can be tapped by these companies and make an easy profit.

  1. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketers do promote a company or an individual’s product or server to your readers and link them to a dedicated affiliate link. Every time someone clicks that link and purchases something, you can earn money by commission. This has been regarded as one of the best and most profitable ways to earn money from a blog as you can create something out of these products and services that you personally use and love.

Can I start a free blog and still earn some money?

Yes you can, but be wary as free services restrict you from having full control on your blog. This can be very risky especially if you just rely on your blog to earn some cash. As much as possible, run a self hosted wordpress blog.
