I know so many content creators (specifically bloggers) who absolutely love blogging but haven’t yet cracked the code on how to make an income from it. It has taken years to make blogging my primary source of income, so I understand how difficult the beginning stages can be when you don’t even know exactly what ways you can get paid. I’m going to share with you 4 ways how you can actually make money blogging.
1. Google AdSense
One of the simplest ways to start earning an income blogging is to monetize your blog with Google Adsense.
When you signup for an Adsense account you can place clickable ads throughout your site. So, when readers click these ads you get a commission for advertising for that company. It’s as simple as that!
2. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is when you receive a commission for recommending a product or service. There are many different affiliate programs available but two very popular ones are Amazon Affiliate and Magic Links. Both these programs are super easy to navigate. You sign up and make an account and once you are in you can create a unique link for almost any product you can think of. Affiliate marketing can be very profitable for beauty and lifestyle bloggers who recommend A TON of products to their readers on a daily basis.
3. Digital Content – Ebooks & Courses
If you have anything that you are good at or skilled in that you think other people would benefit from you sharing, write an E-Book or teach a Masterclass online! There are so many skills that people are looking to learn and many people don’t have the time to venture out to search for an actual sit-down class to teach them the new skills that they are interested in. An E-Book or Masterclass gives people the convenience to learn new skills and information on their own time and also in the comfort of their own home!
4. Sponsored Content
Sponsored content is a way that many influencers (Youtubers, Bloggers, Instagram Influencers) make a FULL-TIME income. Sponsored is when a company or a brand pays you to speak on behalf of their product or services! For example, a cosmetic company may pay your a negotiated amount to do a demo/review of their new foundation. Sponsorships and brand deals can range anywhere from the 100s to the high thousands. Sponsored content is one of the most profitable sources to start receiving a great income by blogging.
