How To Make Money Through Blogging
1. Displaying Advert
You can make decent income by displaying ads on your blog. This can make you a lot of money if your site has good traffic. Like Linda Ikeji, she is making millions of naira displaying ads on her site. And the best ads network is Google Adsense. If your site can have enough traffic and you have Google Adsense account, you will make good income online with this process. You can make money by pay per click on pay per set of visitors. If anybody click on the ads on your website, you will earn some cent of dollars depending on how targeted the traffic is.
You can find other companies that will pay you to display ads on your website. Just make sure you are working with the best company that will not go away with your money and that will not waste your time. Is very important because you don’t want to wake up one day to withdraw your hardworking earning and notice that the company is nowhere to be found.
2. Product Sales
This is one of the hot ways to make money blogging. If you have information to give to people you can blog on it. Many internet marketers are doing this today. They will build their audience, get their email and after sometime promote their information products to their list. If you have good products to give to people and you know that it’s worth been paying for, why not start selling it and make some money?
I heard a story of a young 21years old Nigerian guy who was selling information about diabetes. He was able to sell 120 copies in the first month he launched the products but he has been building his list for more than 6months before he launched the products which means he has been giving useful information to people before he monetize his blog.
Selling information can make you decent income online if you know the right way to do it because it has worked for me many time.
3. Promoting Affiliate Products
If you follow my blog very well you will notice that I have wrote many information on affiliate. Yes, 95% of my mentors are into affiliate and I always love to read from them because reading from them has helped me a lot. You can promote other people’s products if you don’t have your own products and start making some decent commission.
The best Affiliate program that I will advice you to go for is to promote digital products because you will be able to sell to people all over the world. Digital products may be inform of e-book, downloadable videos, software etc.
A friend of mine was making over $50k per month promoting clickbank products before I knew what internet business is. I have good examples of people who are making a lot of money promoting clickbank products like Adam Short the owner of Niche Profits, Mark Ling, Yaro and many more.
You can start your own today and you will have a story to tell tomorrow.
