15 ways bloggers make money blogging!

One common question I get from starters is how bloggers make money blogging. I’m not ignorant that most people who want to generate income blogging start off on a wrong footing. Now, there is so much polluted materials out that. If you are not vigilant, you may get fooled.

In as much as the question of how bloggers make money looks very basic, there are lots of folks out there tearing their hair not knowing what to do or where to start. I have had several friends on Facebook tell me please Enstine, take a look at my blog and tell me what to do to start making money.

I want us to understand here that while your blog is the huge channel through which much can be tapped, there are a couple of opportunities off the blog.

NB: Please help spread the word. Click below to tweet this post

As a blogger, there are several ways you can make money blogging. Let me first of all underline here that as time goes on, new money making opportunities are popping up from every corner. However, there are standard ways to make money as a blogger.

How do bloggers make money blogging ?

-> Recommendation: 15 top bloggers reveal how they make money blogging

I want to approach this question from two angles. I’m sure this will make us really understand where we are going:

A – Make money directly on your blog
B – Make money off your blog

A – How to make money directly using your blog

Let’s look at different ways your blog can directly generate income for you. That means without the blog you cannot make money using these methods –

-> Advertising


Advertising is really a cool way to generate income from your blog. I want us to further break this down so we get a clearer picture;

1 –  Advertise your own products: Now this is surely more straight forward. If you are an author, your blog will be a great avenue to advertise your own products. To boost sales, you may want to cut down prices or offer special discount to your blog readers.

2 – Advertise Affiliate products: I often say you don’t need to be an author to make money online. Affiliate products are products that pay you a commission per sale. What happens here is simple. You get to platforms like ClickBank, Commission Junction, eJunkie, JVZoo, etc and get products that you know can pay pretty good commissions. For the most part, you’ll get banners and other sales tools to use on your blog while you make the money.

3 – Google Adsense Ads: While Google adsense is an important source of income, I often advise bloggers not to be in a hurry. The downside of this advertising model is simply that it takes your visitors away from your blog so quickly. Google does not allow publishers control over how to set the target window of adsense links. That means visitors who click the adsense links will be completely taken away from your blog and that’s not want we want as bloggers.

We want our visitors to hang around our blog for as long as possible to increase time on site and maybe reduce bounce rate. Anything that does not favor this should seriously be given a second thought.

4 – Sell banner space: Now, this is another winner! While not making your blog stuffed with banners, you can make a decent monthly income selling different banner spaces on your blog. The more your traffic, the more impressions you get per portion and the more you can charge.  Some blogs charge up to $250/month per 125×125 ad space.

5 – Sell links on posts: While this can be very rewarding, it makes you an enemy to search engines. Google seriously frowns against link sales  so you do this at your own risk. A quick tip will be to make the link a nofollow so you don’t pass on the juice to the buyer’s url.

6 – Special events: Some bloggers with very popular blogs get paid huge sums to announce special events on their blogs. This may go along with special videos aimed at spreading more information about the event.

7 – Publishing paid guest articles: Guest posting is a common activity in blogging where bloggers develop content for other blogs. While some bloggers scramble to have free articles published on their blogs, others charge for it. There are plartforms today where you can meet advertisers who are ready to pay you to have their articles on your blog.

– > Product reviews


Product reviews is another income channel that brings in quite handsome amounts of earnings. There are two ways bloggers review products and get paid.

8 – Paid product reviews: This is quite simple! Product owners pay you a certain amount of money to have you write a review post about their products. You get paid once – generally from $100 upward per post.

9 – Affiliate product reviews: Bloggers may not want to sit back and wait for vendors to pay them before creating a review post. Another smart step is to review relevant high converting products on their blogs and link to them (these products) on their affiliate links. Any sale that is made through that review post generates commission. The beauty here is that this will keep generating commissions for as long as the post gets traffic (referral and/or search engine).make money blogging

B – How to make money off your blog

Now as a blogger, you can also make money carrying out activities off your blog. Let’s see some of the things you can do outside your blog and earn some money;

10 – Paid to speak at events: Most bloggers with authentic success stories are speakers during blogging events. Of course, they get paid to speak on specific topics and share their knowledge with participants. That’s another way big or pro bloggers make money.

11 – Paid to set up blogs: If you have a little knowledge in setting up a blog, you can always have business. New blogs are published daily so one of the ways to make money as blogger is help beginners set up their blogs for a fee

12 – Paid to guest post on other blogs: I mentioned above that you can charge a fee for content posted on your blog by other bloggers or SEO firms. In the same manner, you can be paid to post content on other blogs. That’s how it works.

In this post, I show you how I was paid $100 per post I submitted to another blog. There are several of such opportunities where you are paid to submit content

13 – Paid to mentor: It’s becoming increasingly clear that to succeed online, you need a mentor else you’ll have to learn the hard way. Most successful bloggers get paid to coach younger bloggers to success.

14 – Contest and Win: There are many cash prize contests and giveaways online today. All you need is enter, follow instructions and you could just be a winner. For the most part, bloggers make use of their blogging power to earn more points and stand a better chance to win.

15 – Paid to Tweet: To be a successful blogger, you have to be active on social media. Bloggers with a considerable social media base get paid to tweet to their followers on Twitter. This also goes for Facebook. You may want to join Sponsored Tweet to earn money from Twitter

How to generate more income from your blog.

How much money you make from your blog depends on a number of factors, one of which is targeted traffic. With a proper monetizing  strategy, the more relevant traffic you get, the more money you make.

Focus on getting more traffic to your blog from search engines,  social media and blog community sites like BlogEngage, BizSugar and a couple of others.

Now, I know you are interested in how bloggers make money blogging. That’s why you read this post to this last paragraph. So share your thoughts with me in the comment box below. Are you a blogger? Do you make money blogging? What are the challenges your are facing in this activity?

Awesome content…and bookmarked it for some ideas for myself to use! I found that using affiliate banners instead of adsense is giving me more of an income because if you use clickbank products you would be getting in between 50 – 75 percent commissions. With adsense you get paid per 1000 impressions depending on the cpm rate.

    Enstine Muki - September 28, 2016

    Hey Jordan,thanks for sharing your experience. That’s what I found too.
    If you can get 3 and more sales from banner ads a month, that may pay better than adsense. Do you notice Adsense doesn’t really do well in some niches like ours?

Enstine, great points here! Years ago I made a great full time living with affiliate marketing online – so this is a great way to go! I’ve been paid well to set up blogs too, and this is a great income source. Lately though, I’ve been focusing more on making and selling my own products. This takes longer and more effort, but I’ve seen others do really well with this, and I’m going for it!

Thanks so much for sharing these great ideas, Enstine!

    Enstine Muki - September 19, 2016

    Oh yeah John those are great success stories with different models 😉
    I do affiliate marketing, my own products and I also get paid to set up blogs for clients. There is always work to do.

    I think affiliate marketing promoting subscription platforms is a more wonderful track to take. You get paid recurring commissions and the money keeps coming in month after month.

    Selling your own products is even more rewarding. Despite having to maintain and upgrade/update, keeping a huge portion of the income and deciding what to do is something only for product creators 😉

    More beautiful days ahead buddy so let’s keep giving

Hello Enstine
Great post ! You have some very helpful and proven ways bloggers make money blogging. I personally make great money with my social media management service and affiliate marketing,like you I started with Clickbank. Even though I am in the adsense program , I would have to agree with you I believe it’s suited for another niche. Again thanks for sharing this helpful value-packed post that I’m sure will inspire me and others to make more money.

Hi Enstine,

You’ve featured some good ideas here.

I’ve never made money direct from my blog. It’s always been about your second option:

‘Make money off your blog’

Some of the ideas I like are:

– Paid to set up blogs

– Paid to mentor

I also use my blog to generate leads for the sale of big ticket affiliate products

All good

Hey Enstine,

You have shown some serious and genuine ways a blogger can generate income. The method one chose should suite the niche of website like you will rarely see any blogger blogging about blogging using adsense since bloggers understands the ads and they will only click on it if it’s something really very useful or appealing, I can see you are also using only one adsense unit, for blogs related to this niche affiliate works better, isn’t it?

For blogs with high traffic, CPM ads and native ads like revcontent , revenue.com works really good.

Thanks for sharing it man 🙂

Cheers,
Karan

Mr Muki,

Many thanks for the detailed article – will definitely be implementing a lot of these pointers on my blogs. It’s been a dream of mine to make a full time living online and become completely location independent.

In your experience, how many bloggers actually make it to the stage where they can quit their job to blog full-time?

Do you think that video blogs (e.g. on youtube) are perhaps more lucrative than writing blog posts?

Thanks again for all the info,

Hi Enstine Muki sir,

I think in your blog, Google Adsense is most powerful way to make money online, Because You don’t work hard to attract people to tell them about advertisement. You just need to do SEO and done.

Affiliating program is not useful for every one like me. because I am no ability to attract people toward me. so Google Adsene is best for me.

Make money without blog is also a great way. but I think blogging is best from all of them.

It is true that bloggers are only thinking about Google adsense for making money on-line. I like the way you explained the drawbacks about ads from Google adsense.

One thing i would like to emphasis upon is content on the blog, it should be contemporary, relevant and up to date. The content is the most important on your blog to drive traffic.

Hello. Your article is helpful as always! I just wanted to know if it’s a good idea to ask PR people for free samples or paid reviews. I have seen many beauty or tech bloggers who have been receiving a lot of free samples from top level brands, I’m just wondering who approaches first? The blogger or PR people?

Hi Enstine,

Great Post. I am using only one out of these many options to monetize my blog for the past 4 years. Now i think i should have tried some other alternatives also. Thanks for this Information. I will try other ways too.

Hello Enstine,
I have been thinking that Google Adsense is the only way to make money. I have applied and my application was rejected. I am sure going to try other ways you have mentioned in your post.
Thanks for your kind help.

Hey Enstine,

Back again and for sure there is always something new. I have in the past written on how bloggers make money and I am impressed to see how you have presented the methods. Separating them into two.

I have made little cash using my blogs through Advertising and offering web design services until now I do it for my little web design company and It’s interesting to get customers who read my blogs and finally want a site developed.

Thanks for sharing this.

    Good to hear this and thanks for coming back and thinking about my blog.
    Wow! I hope you are doing great with your web design company. How are you facing those challenges from clients who keep thinking another design is better?

    My problem with design is that clients always think you can do better and that keeps you working 😉

Hello Enstine,

Great blog post! You explained very well about how to make money blogging. When you say you make money blogging people usually just don’t get it. I have had to explain to people that you don’t actually make money just blogging. The blog is just a tool. Which means you are selling something through your blog. This is the first thing people want to know especially, once they start blogging. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Well, I have been a bit away from blogging in a while now trying to get some other things in place before I bounce back. That has kept me away from commenting on blogs to avoid linking back to my dormant blog.

But that had not stopped me from always reading your posts. I couldn’t help but comment on this one. I have friends who keep asking me for ways to make money online/blogging and it sometimes takes stress trying to walk them through some of these tips. You have just made my job easier on that aspect.

I have bookmarked this link and saved it on my mobile device. Any question on such, BOOM! I’d just send the link as a reference. This post would really solve a lot not only in the blogging world but one ways to make money online. One can even deduce more strategies from the long list you’ve provided.

I also enjoy the way you compose your emails. They just make me smile with the thoughts “This man truly loves his business so much.”

I’d surely be recommending you even before I return to regular blogging. You’ve done a fantastic job on this post. THUMBS UP ENSTINE…

Hey, Enstine!

It’s not the first time I have landed on your blog. I have been reading and following many of your posts. After reading this post, I couldn’t resist myself from commenting. It’s Indeed a very useful post for all bloggers. Money making is one of the prime reasons people join Blogging. As of now I have not been following any of the above-mentioned ways to make money online as I have not monetized my blog yet. But, I really appreciate the way you have described these money making ways.
But one thing to notice here is that we can’t apply any of the above-given methods to make money until we have a good reputed blog. whats your take on this?

Still I would again say a good piece of writing!

maxwell ivey - January 26, 2014

Hello enstine; I followed you here from your guest post on harleena’s site. I have a website and blog where i help people sell new and used amusement equipment. I work on a commission basis. the commissions don’t come in on a reliable enough basis so i have been looking for other sources of income for a while now. I’d like to do banner ads. I am set up to take them and have one sample ad on the site. I set a starting rate of $50 per month, $125 per quarter, or $450 for the whole year. I get at least 6,000 visitors a month with at least 50,000 page loads. I also have an alexa ranking in the top 600,000. some people have suggested that since I am doing all this in spite of being blind that maybe i should expand into the personal motivation or mentorship fields and consider generating extra income from motivational writing or public speaking. What are your thoughts? Thanks for the post and take care, max

Reply
    Enstine Muki - January 26, 2014

    Hi Max,
    As you know the secret to making money from ones blog is traffic and when to start advertising really depends on the niche and competition. Well, I don’t know any much about used amusement equipment but I think at 6000 visitors a month, it’s time to give a try. Go by the package method I explained on aha!now and you’ll know from advertisers whether or not to start advertising or push the blog a little further. I can see some adverting on your blog. You are linking straight to madlemmings.com but that won’t help you much on knowing its performance. I would prefer using a script that will help you track the impressions and clicks. This will enable you put together data for a more accurate conclusion.

    Now if people around you suggest you get into motivational writing or public speaking, I think you should listen to them. Maybe from their interactions with you, they have identified the talents in you. I think finally that if you have the knowledge in the field and can deliver, go for it

    Do have a wonderful weekend as I hope to hear again from you 😉

      Hi Enstine; thanks for the feedback. as for that link it is to my unofficial webmaster ashley faulkes. He installed the plug in for me and i told him to use his company link as the test. he then walked me through adding more ads. since i am blind and don’t really have a budget for a full time webmaster ashley did his best to find tools that i can use to get the job done. that was created with ad rotator i think. what i am planning on trying until i get paying ads is to create banner ads and link them to equipment listings already on the site. for example i just did the video for that carousel. its owners have other equipment to list, so i believe th carousel is a test. so i really want it sold. so i was thinking of creating a banner ad linking to the listing or to the video show. i will give th package idea a try. seems the offer of the banner ad as part of the package might be a good start. what do you think? and do you have a suggestion for a better way of handling ads that i could possibly manage on my own? thanks again, max

Enstine,
After reading your post on Harleena’s blog, I knew that your site was going to be a great resource for me. I am slow to move toward monetizing my blog as I explained in my comment at Aha Now.
I want to continue to look at your ideas and see which ones would best suit the goals for my site. I work full time and yet on a teacher’s salary, do not make enough to do the upgrades and design changes that my blogs needs.
Your ideas are solid and ethical. That is what is needed in this industry. What a breath of fresh air! I am just becoming acquainted with all the ways that making money can be done. I’ve done quite a bit of guest blogging. Initially it was just for experience and exposure, but now it is beginning to pay off.
I may be picking your brain, but for now, I am going to keep reading and looking at your great advice.
Thank you!

Hi Enstine,

These are definitely some great ways to make extra income. I’ve personally never used most of them. I tend to stick with affiliate marketing as that can be an extremely profitable avenue.

As for getting paid to guest blog…I’ve never heard of PostJoint, GuestCrew, linkVehicle. This is definitely some very great information for anyone who wants to create an income online.

Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great day.

Hi Enstine,

When bloggers are entering the world of blogging, then they are considering only Google Adsense is the earning sources and not seen any other method to earn from that.

Paid post is one of the top most area to earn more.. Take a example of Tech blog, because there are lots of gadgets are entering into market daily. If your blog having Good ranking then you will get paid post from it..

Rather than only Google Adsense; there are lots of areas to earn more money through blogging like Affiliate marketing, ads space selling, Text link advertising, paid reviews etc..
