Adsense Ads - Like anything, the more people you have dropping by your blog the better. If you’re using a Blogger.com free blog, you can make money from the ads Blogger places on it. This is usually “Adsense” ads, which you’re probably familiar with when doing your Google searches. Once your audience clicks on those link text/image ads you’ll get a share of the advertising cost. While this might only be a few cents depending on the ad type and how much the advertiser has paid, it can add up over time.
Sell Advertising - Like I wrote on an earlier post, having a blog of your own opens up more advertising possibilities for you. You can again put those adsense ads on your blog by going here, or you can sell advertising spots. Depending on the niche and how popular your blog gets you can command a nice monthly fee for advertising on it.
Become An Amazon Affiliate - If your blog is more of a review type blog where you feature physical things that are on sale in the Amazon store, you sign up to be an affiliate. This means you get a cut of the profits on each product sold. In some cases you can earn up to 10% of each sale your visitors make. Depending on the item sold, it can vary for a few cents for an XBox game to a larger amount for a TV or some other expensive electrical appliance. Also the tracking cookie, makes it possible to make money on multiple sales and not just the one product you sent them to see. So you could make a commission on a TV, Amazon Fire stick or anything else they buy in the 24hrs they’re over there.
Create Your Own Products - Could you turn your articles into a video home study course that your readers can purchase? Could you offer a coaching service and charge monthly for it? Or maybe bundle a bunch of your blog articles together, expand on them, and then create an ebook you could sell? Like blog ideas the ways to make money with your blog are varied and totally up to you.
Offer Your Writing To Other Blogs - If the thoughts of setting up and handling a blog of your own seems too much right now, why not give guest blogging a go? Guest blogging is when you write content for someone else blog. Blog owners are always looking for content for their blogs and if the work you supply is good they may hire you on a part/full time basis to write content for them. If they’re not interested in payment for content, ask if they’d be willing to let you advertise an affiliate product in your post, or sell you some advertising space on the blog in exchange for your time.
