Things To Keep In Mind When You’re Thinking About How To Actually Start Making Money From Blogging

1. Contrary to popular belief, bloggers do not earn money from content. The content on your blog only facilitates traffic, which in turn may convert to clicks, sales or sign ups. It is from those clicks, sales or sign-ups that the money really comes from.

2. There are many income streams that you can take advantage of as a blogger.  If you want to make money on a blog you will need to have multiple streams of income since the income from some can cease completely over time, while others will grow exponentially over months and even years.

3. You will need to build trust with your visitors, and this will happen by providing valuable information to them AT ALL TIMES. This doesn’t mean that you can’t monetize your blog from the beginning. In fact, I recommend that you start to monetize as early as possible if one of your goals is to make money on your blog. Earning your first $1.00 from your blog may just be the thing to keep you motivated and consistent with blogging.

Ensure You Monetize Organically

4. Make sure you’re monetizing your blog organically.  This means that you should sell/sponsor products that have some sort of relation to your website content or niche. For instance, if your blog is about health and fitness, try to find affiliate programs that are related to health and fitness or create your own products (e-books for instance) that relate to health and fitness. This is the type of information that your visitors are expecting and are interested in.

5. Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. Don’t get me wrong, you can become rich off a blog, but it won’t happen overnight.

6. Although the concept of blogging is quite simple, less than 25% of bloggers earn a consistent income from their blogs. Why? Because the other 75% become inconsistent, and they don’t dedicate time to learning the techniques of successful bloggers.


The most successful bloggers are people just like you and me, who dedicate time to learning how to make money from their blogs and most importantly, they implement the strategies used by other successful bloggers on their own blogs.

Don’t be phased! You can become part of the 25% of successful bloggers if you’re committed, consistent and if you’re constantly learning how to improve your blog.

And the good news is you’re already a step ahead of most people who start blogging.

How come, you’re asking?

Well, most people who start off blogging do it as a hobby, they don’t explore the idea of using their blog as a source of income until a few months or even years of blogging.

You are here now, and you’re already learning about how to make money on a blog. Therefore, you have a great head start. You’re already doing that thing I hinted at! You’re  learning!! And if you keep it up and implement the good strategies that you learn, I have no doubt that you will succeed as a blogger.

You’re here to learn so without further ado, these are methods on how to make money on a blog.


This is the process of allowing ads on your blog.

Types Of Blog Advertising Options

Ad Networks

An ad network is a company that connects advertisers to bloggers and other website owners who want to host advertisements in order to earn cash.

How To Make Money Blogging With Popular Ad Networks.

When you join an ad network Such as Google AdSense, you as a blogger or website owner will be provided with a code by the ad network.

You will then use this code to place an ad space on your blog which is then filled with advertisements purchased by advertisers who use Google for their advertising.

Many ads are determined by the keywords you use on your blog, so they are likely to be niche related. You get paid a commission based on the number of people who see, click, purchase, sign up for or otherwise act on an advertisement.

When starting out as a new blogger with little to no traffic you will find that many ad networks simply won’t accept your website. Don’t worry, there are some networks that would love to display their ads on your blog. Here is a list of ad networks that work with new or smaller bloggers to help them earn through advertising.

Mediavine Ads:

These are the ads that I currently display on my blog. They’re awesome since they help me earn so much more than Google Adsense or any other ad network listed above. Additionally, they pay their publishers via impressions and not via clicks like most other ad networks do. Keep in mind that you will only get approved as a Mediavine ad publisher, you need to have 25k or more sessions each month.

Affiliate Networks

When you join an Affiliate Network such as Share a Sale, you as a blogger/website owner will then be able to apply to join specific advertising campaigns for various stores, websites and so on. If accepted into any specific affiliate program, you will be provided with text or banner images that you can use to create campaigns on your blog.

Therefore, you can say that you have more control over this form of advertising versus the ad networks. You get paid a commission based on the number of people who see, click, purchase, sign up for or otherwise act on an advertisement.

Here Are Some Affiliate Networks That You Can Join. (Most Accept New Bloggers)

Becoming An Independent Affiliate For Independent Merchants.

There is another aspect to being an affiliate. It involves you doing your own research for websites, products or services and signing up to become an affiliate for them directly from their website,rather than via an affiliate network.

You may be surprised by the vast number of businesses willing to compensate you for promoting their product or service. Always ensure that you are promoting products or services with some relation to your blog or niche.

Private Ads

This is obviously for more advanced bloggers who have a large following. You can read this article about it here.
