5 Ways of Making Money from Blogging

While you don’t have to be a famous blogger or even to have huge traffic, how much money you make depends on both mentioned factors. Below are presented five ideas that will get you earning some money from your blogging efforts.

Generally, the revenues come in the form of (CPC) cost-per-click ads, where the advertiser pays a set amount every time a visitor clicks on their ad, and (CPM) cost-per-impression, where advertisers pay each time the ad is viewed on the blog.

Donations. Even though soliciting donations may sound like the perfect solution, depending on the type of blog you’re running, donations can make sense. For example, you can ask for donations to help cover the costs of continuing to provide readers with your insights and expertise. The key is to be very clear about your intentions, how the money will be used and to make sure you’re in compliance with any fundraising and tax regulations.

Affiliate programs. Another popular way to generate advertising revenue is to use affiliate programs, where you promote products by placing a text link, image or banner on your blog. The best strategy is to identify products that have some logical relationship to your blog. For example, if you’re blogging on travel destinations, ads promoting related products are a good fit.

Reviews. Bloggers can make money by reviewing products, events or businesses through their blog posts. To this end, pay-per-post programs can be also used.

Ebooks. Another great way to earn some money with your blog, is writing an ebook and sailing it through your blog. But, ebooks are successful for bloggers who have alerady positioned themselves as experts in their fields.
