HOW TO MAKE MONEY BLOGGING?

Hello everyone, 



Whether you enjoy blogging as a hobby, which helps you escape the responsibilities of your everyday life or want to call blogging your career (more than 100% possible), this post will help you get an idea of multiple ways to make money from your blog. There are many factors that go into achieving this, but as long as you have a vision for your blog, you'll get there step by step. 

I'm eager to write this post and share with you my knowledge of blogging because with the New Year, I know that many of us want change, want to call our hobbies our jobs, want to fully emerge into our creative beings, and are open to growing/achieving our goals in 2020!!!

As you may know, in April I'll be making 5 years since I starting my fashion blog. During that time, I had zero knowledge of the depths of blogging and how one could turn it into a profession. With time I read a lot of books (currently I'm reading 3 books about blogging), other bloggers' shared experiences and with every year, I got into blogging more and more. NOW, I want to help those of you who come across this post and are interested in this topic and want to make an income from blogging. 

Before I get into the details of ways to make money, I've got to mention it isn't as easy as everyone thinks it is. It requires a lot of preparation, great content, consistency, social media strategy, everyday work...and most of all, a lot PATIENCE!   

With so many blogs being created everyday, you've got to think what makes you different? Why would people want to visit your blog over and over again? Is there something you would like to teach your audience like creating DIY projects or ways to dress for different occasions or mostly you would like to share your personal life experiences? There is so much to think about...before anything else you've got to know the answers to these questions yourself. 


So, you've got your PASSION set, whether that's blogging about the newest beauty products, writing about photography, teaching others how to live a healthy lifestyle. Now we can focus on the many ways your blog can bring income your way!!!


     
1. GOOGLE AD-SENSE 

This is a term you most likely have heard of. What is ad-sense? It's the ads that appear when you enter a blog. They can be seen on the side of a blog, showing up within a blog post, between blog posts or really anywhere you desire them. The amount of ads showing up is up to you. You can have as few as 2-3 ads or 5-6. It really depends on what you feel is right for your own blog!

You might be wondering, how does one make money from having google ads added to their blog? Think of it as an advertisement...the more these ads get clicked on, the more money you make. Of course, it will take some time to start earning enough money from them, but as your blog gets more popular, so will the income from google ad-sense. 

In the beginning, you start by making cents, but if you keep working on your blog, providing your readers with content that they want to follow regularly, you'll easily be able to call blogging more than just a hobby. How does that sound? 


2. FREELANCE BLOGGING JOBS 

Yep, nowadays a lot of companies have blogs to stay connected with their customers, which opens doors to being hired to write for them. This is another way to earn money on the side. While you work on your blog, why not write for others as well (and get paid) who will benefit from your writing skills? Plus, you can represent your own blog as a resume - showing your style of writing, your creativity, your professionalism and your love for blogging. 

Here are 3 sites you can check-out for jobs:  
(I use them often!)



Each job ad has its own requirements, so if you come across one that you like, be sure to apply! 


3. AFFILIATE LINKS  

You can make money through the affiliate links on your blog when a reader purchases a certain item through your link recommendation. Be sure to link products that are associated with your niche. For example, if you've got a blog about beauty you can include a link of the latest beauty products you feel like your audience would love as much as you do. This way your readers can easily find or buy beauty products while they are reading your post. All in one place without having to search the internet!  

I use ShopStyle! It fits wonderfully with my fashion blog. I'm able to find similar or the same clothing items and link them in my posts. Anything from bags, to shoes, to jewelry! The more affiliate links you share, the more commission you'll be able to earn as your blog continues to grow. 

Another affiliate program I've seen many bloggers use is Amazon Associates. It allows you to link hundreds and thousands of products. A perfect way to make money while blogging!

4. ADVERTISE ON YOUR BLOG

Okay, so now that you've got a decent amount of readers who trust your opinion, keep coming back and want to see more of you, you can advertise your own services. That includes writing an ebook on a topic you're an expert at, charging a monthly fee for anyone who wants to buy it. Another idea is offering your service of writing articles for magazines or newspapers. Place the ad on the sidebar of your blog and you've got another sure way to make money online. This way you're not only the creator of your blog, but you're the CEO of your business. 

Also, you can charge as brands want to work with you. If they want you to share their product/service with your audience. Here, demographics and amount of views come into play. The more popular your blog is, the more money you can get paid while promoting a brand. Be sure the brand is one that you love as well and it isn't only about the money because trust me, your readers will know the difference. 


     
5. JOIN BLOG NETWORKS

Some of you will be in favor of this, others not so much. Here is why. Joining a network means you won't be the only owner of your blog. Your revenue will be split into two. The network you're signed to will make money from you as their job is to help your blog grow. This is great if you're just starting out and need help in getting your blog out there. 

You can see there are both advantages and disadvantages, but do what's right for you. Jointing a network is a helping hand when you feel like you're alone doing this. You'll learn a lot from others and start making money faster. 

However, contracts are included, so be careful what you're signing. Take into consideration...do you want to be the owner of your blog? Do you want to blog about any topic you desire? Are there more positives than negatives for you when joining a network? 


This is it! I've covered it all and really hope this helps a lot of you. Please let me know what you think of this post? If you want to learn a lot more about this topic, I highly suggest reading this book: It helped me learn so much!!!

    very useful tips, but when it comes to making money on the blog, you need patience and regular posts - no one will want to cooperate or visit a blog that is two months old and only one post appeared at that time
    Happy New Year 😘

  21. Your post is very well documented and useful. I blog as a hobby because I like to share my thoughts on different topics and sometimes I accept collaborations only on the topics I am a fan of. I don't see blogging as a career and this is why I haven't digged more into this subject, in case I will do it in future I will keep your post in mind.

  27. Incredible tips!! I like writing and it never occurred to me to offer my services to other bloggers to help them write content. Nice suggestion👏🏾 I opened those three links to check out possible freelance gigs. I'm going to apply to ShopStyle too, that sounds like a great way to get extra cash for fashion work. Also, I never thought about placing advertisement of my skills on my blog, GENIUS IDEA babe! Thanks for all these lovely suggestions 👏🏾♥️
