It is nothing new in the fact that people consider blogging as a strong medium to make money. Almost daily I came through many people either in real world or through social media sites who just wanted to start a blog to earn some money through it.
Although I have written another blog post on How to Make Money from Blogging a few days back, you can also read the same by clicking here.
I guess this new blog on the same topic will complete the post.
Most common question which I encounter as an established blogger is how can I make money from my blog or do I start a blog to earn money?
Well to be very frank, I usually advice fresher’s that don’t think about Blog as a medium to earn money, rather concentrate on developing a Blog which can be a piece of identity for yourself.
Earning through blog is quite natural and will come in long run, you can’t expect that you started a blog and from the next day it will start earning you a handsome amount, as if you are doing a full time job.
To be very frank, if can be possible. You might be surprised, right?
Yes it can be possible but not before your blog is established as an authority blog and start getting lots and lots of traffic. It can be possible in a few years only, not in a few days time.
How to Make Money from Blogging?
Here are a few ways through which you can make money from your blog or from blogging:
You know how television channels display ads to their viewers and earn money from businesses?
The more viewers a TV channel will have, the more earning they will have from their advertisers.
Similarly blogging or blogs are also a medium to display ads, and you can simply earn by either displaying direct ads, or ads through some programs like Adsense, Chitika, Adbrite, etc.
The more visitors your blog will have, the more you will have the earnings.
Obviously the best medium to earn through advertisements on your blog is the Google Adsense program, which is quite convenient, trustable and easy. But then getting the approval of Adsense program is not that easy. For that you need a well maintained and established blog first.
You can anytime opt blogging as a medium to earn money easily if you can have the talent to run a quality blog.
Ideally speaking through any advertisement programs your blog will earn definitely, but then it will have limited earnings only. If you want to grow the earning through your blog then the best way to do so is to sell products through it.
Products? Whose products? And how?
Well, you might be thinking all those things, but you need not to worry about them as I am here to suggest you.
Well, there are so many products which you can sell online. Something likes an App, Theme, Memberships Programs, Plugin, Chat Application, etc. You can either sell your own product through your blog, or you can also take affiliate from some established products and start selling them on your own blog.
I guess this is the best way to earn through your blog.
If you don’t have any product, or you think you are unable to find such products which you can sell or recommend someone, then the best thing which you can do to earn from your blog is to start selling some services like online training, tutorials, coaching materials, SEO services, online marketing services, or anything which you can do easily.
If you are an expert of a particular field then there is no harm in selling those services to your readers. Just for an example, I am an SEO having more than 10 years of experience in this field, and hence I can teach anyone about SEO and other online marketing stuffs.
To be very frank, if you are good at writing then you can also sell pre-written articles, blogs, web page content etc. through your blog.
If you are a designer, you can sell the designing stuffs like logo, templates, etc.
If you are a motivational guru, you can simply sell your talents through your blog.
Similarly if you are good at public speaking, let your blog start selling your public speaking services and see how you can earn something good through it.
If you think you are unable to do any of the above things, the best you can do is start writing a book. You are already having a blogger inside you, and you write and share a blog randomly and hence you can easily write down a book. Chose topic wisely depending on what things you are good to write about.
As many of my readers are already aware that I too recently published my first book, similarly if you are running a blog you can also think about publishing a book. If you are having limited budget then also you need not to worry about, don’t think about a paperback book or a hard copy of your book is not required in this online world, you can simply go ahead with the concept of eBooks, like I did:
Anybody can Do Blogging, But Not Guest Blogging!
So these were some of the ways through which you can start earning from your blog or your blogging talent.
To be very frank, earning through advertisements, and through affiliate marketing are good, but then nothing beats selling your own product, no matter if it is an eBook only, but selling your own stuff or products or services is quite better than anything else.
