If you are just a beginner or pro blogger and want to increase your earnings.
Then you are at the right place.
If you do blogging as a hobby or full time, you can use these 10 best-proven strategies to earn money by blogging.
Let’s get started.
How To Monetize Blogging?
Affiliate marketing is the process of earning money through promoting other products.
You can simply insert your unique affiliate link into your blog content.
Whenever someone clicks on that link and buys the product you will get a percentage of the commission.
It is a great way to earn from blogging
A popular blog of Pat Flynn ( Smart passive income blog ) is applying the same strategy and they are earning 6 figures.
Promote the products that add value to the customer’s life and only the products that you trust the most.
Do not promote low-quality products on your website because it can hurt your website traffic as well as you will lose trust.
Sponsored ads are the popular and old technique to earn from blogging.
There are lots of popular ad networks that you can use for example:-
- Google ads – No Monthly Visitors Requirements
- Mediavine – 50000 page views per month
- Ezoic – 10000 page views per month
You need to create a free account on these networks and fill in the information.
They manually check your website and approve it.
Therefore before choosing any of the above networks.
Read the rules and regulations they want you to follow to get approved.
My tip to get instant approval is to make sure your website has unique content, theme, about us page, contact us page and a minimum of 20 blog posts.
The saying that “Money is on the list” is true. Email Marketing is a powerful tool to grow your blog to the next level.
If you are not utilising it from day one than you are leaving a lot of money on the table.
Why am I saying this?
Because according to the reports, when you spend $1 on email marketing, you can expect a return of $42.
Isn’t it amazing?
It is a process of emailing directly to the customers who have subscribed to your email list.
There are lots of ways to grab the email of the people who are coming to your website.
Insert opt-in forms using popular plugins like thrive leads and then connect them to your email marketing software.
You can use getresponse because their pricing is affordable as compared to other platforms.
You can regularly email your subscribers about the latest updates, tell your story, promote products, webinars etc.
With the help of email marketing, you can build a strong community that knows you and trusts you.
You can even increase traffic to your website in just one click.
Create Your Course
Online courses are the process of learning any skill from electronic devices like mobile, computers and tablets.
Creating your online course can be highly effective in generating a passive income stream from your blog.
An online course can be in the form of video, document, pdf etc.
One of the best things about online courses is that you only create them once and sell them infinitely.
There are two ways to sell online courses:-
- Own Website
When you sell your online course on any marketplace they take a cut of up to 75% also you have various limitations on setting the pricing and discounts.
On the other hand, if you sell an online course on your website you can take 100% of the profit without sharing it with others.
It helps in establishing brand and authority. Your audience can connect with you directly if they face any doubts and problems.
For creating an online course you need a tool that can structure the elements, host videos, ability to download the assets etc.
In addition, you need a payment provider that can help you receive payments from the clients.
For that, you can use PayPal or Stripe ( Kajabi can do all of the work for you).
Sell Your Ebook
Ebook is an electrical form of the book that people can read on electronic devices like computers, mobile or tablets.
Create your ebook and offer it to your audience for a specific price.
It should be something valuable that people get eager to buy this book from you.
Do some online research to know the problems your target audience is facing and provide a solution in the ebook.
You can find great topics from google trends, competitors blog comment sections, niche product reviews, googles people ask section, quora questions etc.
Write down each idea that you grabbed from these areas and start writing your ebook.
Use a catchy title because that’s the first thing that will grab your customers attention.
Use something like “how to lose weight within 30 days”.
Here you are resolving a specific problem within a short period and people would be excited to buy this ebook.
Sponsored posts are another way to earn money by blogging and it is becoming quite popular among bloggers.
It is the process of accepting blog posts from other websites in return for a commission.
To start with sponsored posts you need to make sure you have established yourself as an authority in your niche and have a lot of traffic to your website.
If you are not getting any traffic why would someone approach you for a sponsored post?
Because at the end of the day, clients want to a blog making money.
To get started, simply create a separate page on your website to invite pitches.
People should know that you are available for sponsored posts.
Here’s an example below:-
In addition, you can create a media kit that shows you as a professional. Make it compelling and clear.
Your media kit can consist of:-
- Website Url
- Monthly Website Visitors
- Information about why you are interested in working with us.
- Social Media Account URL.
The most important thing you should do before accepting any offer is that you thoroughly check all of the above information.
Their website audience interests should match yours because if they offer something irrelevant then it turns off your audience.
You can even lose traffic from your website. Therefore do your homework wisely before accepting any offer.
Paid webinars are live events that you host in exchange for a price to attend the webinar.
It should be something exclusive that is not available anywhere else.
It must be one of a kind opportunity for your audience to connect with you and gain highly valuable knowledge.
You can make this webinar more interesting by including videos with industry experts.
When you host these kinds of live webinars, there are few things that you should keep in mind: the internet connection and third-party software you are using.
Incorporate these costs while deciding the price for your webinar.
In addition, the topic of your webinar must be high in demand.
Hosting a webinar not only helps you to generate huge revenue but also increases brand awareness.
Sell Ad Space Directly
Ads space refers to the blank space on the website available for advertisement.
It can be on the top or bottom as well as on the side section or sometimes in between the content.
You can offer direct space to advertisers by creating a separate page on your website and pitching them that you are available for accepting ads.
You can apply this marketing strategy to boost your revenue only if you have enough traffic on the website.
It is similar to sponsored posts but here you are offering direct ads which can be in the form of banner ads, display ads, native ads, text or videos.
Make sure you are sharing high-quality content to make a loyal audience base.
You can write a review of the product in exchange for a commission.
There are lots of companies that are ready to pay you a good amount of money for just writing reviews of their products.
It helps those companies to increase brand awareness.
Make sure you are promoting relevant products in your niche and test the product by yourself to provide an honest review.
Do not try to mislead the audience just to earn money from these sponsors.
There are platforms like PayPerPost that can help you connect with companies that are interested in providing these offers.
Or you can simply outreach out to companies for paid reviews.
Membership plans are exclusive paid content that can only be accessed through member login id and passwords.
You can set payments on a monthly or annual basis.
To attract your audience to purchase your membership plan give them some free samples.
If your audience trusts you and loves your content then they will buy your paid plans as well.
There are lots of other ways to earn money by blogging but I have picked the best one in this post.
You may have noticed that some bloggers earn a lot of money even with a small amount of traffic but on the other side, there is someone who has a lot of traffic but not generating a good amount of money.
The reason behind it is they are using monetization strategy effectively.
You also need to apply the same.
Blogging is a great career opportunity and the number of bloggers in the United States is estimated to be 32 million as of 2021.
Which monetization are you going to use next?
