So you have started your blog. And you have heard or maybe even read somewhere you can make money blogging. And you want to give it a try. Well, you’re in the right place. In this post, I tell you how you can make money blogging just like I do.
I have been blogging for about five years. I use to blog about celebrity gossip. I started this blog because I wanted to help others and help my self.
I am learning and sharing what I learn with you so you can make money online also.
And if you put in the hard work you can quit the 9-5 and spend more time with my family & start building a lifestyle you are happy with.
I made a lot of mistakes when I first started blogging. But once I knew what I was doing, it was uphill from there.
Pick a Profitable Blog Niche
People all way say find a profitable niche. And this is true, but you must also blog about something that interests you, or something your passionate about. Otherwise, you will get bored and move on to the next thing.
So ask yourself, what are you passionate about?
What are you Interested in?
You could learn the niche your interested in and then blog about.
Learn while your blogging.
Or you could be great at a certain thing, and blog about it.
Get you a pen and a notebook and write down a few ideas.
If you really have no clue where to start with Affiliate Marketing I suggest reading these e-books.
Cost per click advertising (CPC) are ads that can be displayed on your website that you will be paid for every time someone clicks them.
If your blog brings in high traffic levels then displaying Google adverts can be a quick and easy way to make steady revenue. If your blog is good at keeping your users on the pages then these types of ads can work well for driving high conversions, especially with in-post ads.
The big advantage of using a Google Adsense is that it takes just minutes to set up and you don’t really need any coding knowledge to implement it within your blog.
A sponsored post is one way in which to make money from advertisers. With this type of arrangement, you may be asked to publish a post that is provided by the advertiser or they may ask you to write a post that mentions them or their product – depending on your following you can expect to receive between $50 and $500 for a sponsored article.
eBooks & online Training Courses
As I mentioned earlier if you looking at offering consulting or training services then it might be worth packaging your materials together into an online course. By offering MP3 or video downloads your students can follow along at their own pace. This is a very popular blog monetization strategy, especially within the online marketing space.

2. Relevant and helpful content.
Now that you’ve started a blog, write 5-10 relevant and helpful posts related to your niche that will solve your readers’ problems.

Pinterest traffic will be your new BFF! When you have a new blog or website, I recommend focusing your efforts on Pinterest! It’s definitely a lot easier to get traffic from Pinterest than Google.
