Ways To Make Money

Display Advertising

The easiest way to get started with display advertising is to use a service such as Google Adsense. You are not going to get rich quick but the steady stream will soon add up

Display the code on your blog and earn some advertising income every time that your advert is displayed. Easy enough right? The more ads viewed the more you earn

Affiliate Marketing

This is where you promote a product or a service and you earn a commission for every sale that you drive. This could be through cookie links or affiliate codes, it is still affiliate marketing. You can make a huge income from this as the potential is uncapped

Sponsored Posts

A company ask you to write about them, their products or their services for a fee. They are paying you to create a post for them, sponsoring the content

This can be a great boost to any blogger’s earnings, remember you need to state that the post is sponsored, as discussed in this blog post

Social Media

You might think that only the big names with hundreds of thousands of social media followers can make money, but that isn’t the case

Various companies like to use influencers and micro influencers to help promote their products, you can read my post on micro influencers here

Sell Something

Write an e-book relating to something you write about on your blog

Sell a service that you can do, such as freelance writing or being a virtual assistant

Produce a product and sell it through a shop on your blog

There are lots of opportunities and as your blog and readership grows, so can your business

You might also be approached for other work. An avenue you hadn’t necessarily thought about, such as a newspaper article or a magazine column, because of your blog

If your blog really takes off you could consider hiring a virtual assistant to help with the work load

The possibilities amount and the sooner you are creating your blog, the sooner you are creating more ways to make more money

Hope this gives you some food for thought
