I’ll give you the most impor­tant meth­ods that you can use to make mon­ey blog­ging. Most of this meth­ods can be broad and they all have their pros and cons but you will earn from them if you focus.

This methods can also be divided into subsections that can produce higher amounts of income.

Advertising Networks

The first method to earn an income online is to use adver­tis­ing net­works. An adver­tis­ing net­work is plat­form where ad adver­tis­ers can buy ads and pub­lish­ers or site own­ers pub­lish the buy­ers ads on their web­sites or blogs.

Basi­cal­ly is plat­form that allows you as the site own­er to pub­lish oth­er people’s ads on your site. You then get paid small amounts when your site vis­i­tors click on those ads.

The best Ad Net­work  you can use is Google AdSense, is the most used in ad net­work in the world.

Google cre­at­ed AdSense in 2003 to help web­site pub­lish­ers earn mon­ey online for their traf­fic. It also helps adver­tis­ers get traf­fic to their offers or prod­ucts.

Google will show tar­get­ed ads base on what a read­er searched for recent­ly or what your con­tent is about. The ads are shown based on the user’s inter­est.

Google AdSense is the best method to make mon­ey blog­ging for most new blogs. You need to sign up with AdSense for free and apply and get approved.

After get­ting approval from Google you can cre­ate ads and place them on your site. You will need to choose from dif­fer­ent ad sizes and types(text ads, block ads or ban­ners ads).

There are not too many require­ments with accept that your site needs to be inline with the AdSense pol­i­cy. It can take a few days to get your site approved and you site needs to have con­tent.

Write and pub­lish at least 15 arti­cle before apply­ing for Google AdSense.

There are alter­na­tive to AdSense that also offer qual­i­ty ads. You can try any of them and place ads on your site and earn for every click.

Affil­i­ate mar­ket­ing is good way to earn because you can earn pas­sive income. You might have to do a lot of work upfront, such as start­ing a blog and writ­ing con­tent relat­ed to the pro­gram.

You will earn com­mis­sions every time you refer some­one to a pro­gram and they buy the prod­uct.

There are two types of affil­i­ate pro­grams, there’s a one time earn­ing pro­gram where­by you only earn com­mis­sion once when the a per­son you referred makes their first sale.

This type of affil­i­ate pro­gram is good some­times if the com­mis­sions are high. Even though you don’t want to use such pro­grams they are still good to get start­ed.

The sec­ond one is a recur­ring affil­i­ate pro­gram where­by you earn con­tin­u­ous­ly every time a per­son you referred buys the prod­uct.

Most peo­ple pre­fer the sec­ond option, I also pre­fer the sec­ond one. I can just pro­mote the pro­gram a ones and keep earn­ing when mem­bers keep buy­ing.
