This post contains affiliate links! This means I’m helping you and making some money for it too AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU (SOMETIMES EVEN WITH A DISCOUNT ;))!
BUT, it’s something we WANT and need to survive and live good lifestyles!
If you’ve been blogging for quite sometime, or want to become a blogger, or maybe you just started like five minutes ago: you might want to start making money with your blog. Am I right, or am I right?
Let’s just cut to the point because we all know what you really want to know.
So I’m going to tell you 3 QUICK ways to monetize your blog, and actually make money because we’re not here to waste any time!
1.) Enroll with Google Adsense and Mediavine.
These are TWO good ways to get passive income. (Passive means you don’t have to work at it to get it, it just comes).
Google Adsense is not a HIGH earning money account, but I say every dollar counts AND you don’t need a certain amount of page viewers to use them.
You sign up with your google account, and once you fill out everything correctly your page will look like this:
Once you’re approved you will get an email, and it’s very user friendly! You copy and paste the ad type that you want and simply put in a widget, or posts and you get paid once you reach a threshold.
With Mediavine, you get paid a little differently. You have to have a certain amount a page viewers every month so that you can get approved with them, but they’re definitely worth it.
You can get upwards of thousands of dollars a month, and to make a long story short, they make ad posting ten times easier for you. They do most of the work!
2.) Enroll as an affiliate!
What is an affiliate link?
This is an example of one:
Buy My Favorite Book!
Basically, you put a product on your page from a company that you’re an affiliate for (like Amazon) and whenever someone buys that product you receive commission for it!
Affiliate links are one of the BEST ways to make money. Most of the highly successful blogs I visit that make thousands a month use affiliate links like no other. And they will preach it to ya too!
I would recommend starting with the Amazon affiliate program.
You don’t need a certain amount of monthly viewers and it’s easy to copy and paste their codes to whatever products you like and put them on your page.
Look through your blog posts that are already there. Do you see anything that you talk about that you can sell products for?
For example: if you enjoy cooking, what measuring cups do you use in your pictures or when you’re cooking? You can sell those! Go to different company websites, see if you can find the affiliate sections, and ask if you can be a part of their program! Incorporate affiliate links into your old blog posts and you will my friend!
Another good site is ShareASale. So you can give that a looker too!
3.) Sell a product or service.
Are you good at something? Is there something you think you can teach very well? Maybe you have a book you’ve been working on.
There are PLENTY of ideas out there.
You can make t-shirts on a t-shirt site, and sell those. You can make mugs and sell those.
You can make an E-Course, and sell that. You can do a paid webinar even!
There are so many options.
Look at your old blog posts again. Is there anything that you can expand more on and make a full course out of?
You’d be surprised to see the things people would pay for sometimes! Especially if it’s information full of value! This is HUGE!
A lot of bloggers make most of their money from a product that they offer to their viewers! We all have something to offer!
Make sure that your content is valuable, and that your readers ACTUALLY need this or want this and it WILL sell!
Making money on your blog isn’t the EASIEST thing to do. You have to be patient and persistent. You also have to see what does and doesn’t work.
Keep up with your analytics. What do your viewers want and like? Which of your posts are getting the most views? Which are getting the least.
Don’t be scared to go back and upgrade your content and make it nicer.
And market yourself like crazy!
