10 Simple Ways to Make Money with Your Blog [Today]

Today I want to show you how to start
making money with your blog and if you have traffic already coming to your site
then implementing the first two methods you’ll start seeing results immediately.
Okay, let’s get started. The first method I want to show you is by adding display
ads on your site and specifically when you’re first getting started you’ll want
to look at adding Google Adsense to your site. The biggest reason you want to look
at Google Adsense is simply because there is no minimum traffic requirements
and that means that as soon as you put that on your site even if you’re getting
very little traffic you’ll at least start to see a few pennies a day or a
month and I will tell you that first penny or that first dime or dollar that
you make on your site will be a game-changer in your mind.
I remember in 2009 my first Adsense recording was like a dollar fifty three
but that changed my whole perspective on making money online with my site and
it’ll do the same for you. Now once your site starts getting more traffic monthly
say ten thousand views or more you’ll want to start looking at other ad
networks as well to compare to see which one will give you more revenue. The next
way is also an easy way is to start doing affiliate marketing. A lot of
people nowadays they use Amazon Associates as their main affiliate
marketing and that’s simply because it’s way easier, everybody buys things
everybody tries things out and you can create a whole article on the product
that you were using and how you like it and the great thing about the Amazon
Associates is once they click on that link and go to Amazon you will get
credit for anything that they buy whether it’s that product that you’ve
recommended or something else that they buy entirely. Anything that they buy
during that 24 hour period you’ll get credit for it. Some other big affiliate marketing networks are also shareasale CJ which used
to be Commission Junction and Rakuten will do that as well and practically
every store that you can imagine every product that you have ever used, you can
go out and do a search on Google and say your product plus affiliate and find
their affiliate program, sign up for it, and then you can start promoting your
favorite products on your website as well. Honestly doing those two things
when you’re first getting started in making money on your
blog you’ll just see a huge change in the way that you work on your website.
The next one let’s talk about creating a membership website. This is a really good
idea if you have knowledge in a certain topic or area that other people want to
know about and it doesn’t have to be professional related it can be in crafts.
There are a ton of membership websites in the quilting, tiny home building, RV
living, as well as a lot of online marketing type sites and with a few
different WordPress plugins it makes it really easy to create a membership site.
When you create a membership website you’re basically giving people access
behind a paywall where they can log in and they can see content that’s not out
there anywhere else and you can choose to set this up as a ongoing yearly
membership fee or a one-time lifetime upgrades what have you the, the choice
is yours. Next, create a directory website. This can
be a paid item and it’s typically things like a job board for a specific area, a
business directory typically in your town that’s a big one, you can also do
topic related directories and most of the time you’re getting the money by
paid submission either on the submitters part or the people who are looking.
Angie’s List is a perfect example of bringing contractors and people looking
for contractors to work on their house Plex jobs is another great directory
where people are going to look for remote work or temporary work. So think
of a topic in an area that you can provide for both people looking for
something and people offering something and then that’s a great recipe for
creating a directory website. Next, you can sell an e-book and basically this is
just you going out and researching a topic and making it as useful and
informative as you can and it’s usually an entry product for some of these other
things like creating a membership site. Actually a lot of people use an e-book
to sell first and then the next step is they’ll either do an online course or a
membership website. The next way to make money is by becoming a coach and this
usually involves a one-on-one feature with you either with one person or maybe
a handful but a manageable group of people that
they have a certain amount of your time and you’re helping them with this.
Typically this is a business coach or a life coach, maybe a fitness coach but it
can also be in other ways say in design or development or marketing or even
offline stuff. You can be a quilting coach or a guitar playing coach, music
coach, language coach I have seen that as well and this is a great way to really
increase your authority in the area that your blog is about. Next, you can sell an
online course and typically what people do is they’ll do an e-book first to see
how it does, the popularity of it, and then they’ll take that ebook and turn it
into an actual online course. This can get you more money because there’s a lot
more involvement in it on the students behalf and on your behalf so just know
that there’s a lot more upfront work that you’ll have to do in creating the
videos, in creating the printables, the things that go with the course. What a
lot of people do when they sell courses is they’ll offer different tiers of
support where you get a little bit more interaction with the teacher in the
premium course than you do with the basic and then once you’re done creating
the course you can use a wordpress plugin as an LMS or a learning
management system that delivers the course to the students and it’s in a
progression style so once they finish one lesson and they’ll go on to the next.
Two really good popular plugins for that look into LearnDash and MemberPress. The
next way is to sell physical products online. Basically setting up an
e-commerce store or an online shop and sell things either that you’ve made,
maybe that you import, or even be a drop shipper where you’re simply reselling
and somebody else ships it on your behalf
and thinking up ways to make money online this is probably one of the
easiest for people to understand because they’re simply selling a product that
somebody wants and they understand that very well. Next thing you can do is you
can offer freelance services so you already do something as an employee
somewhere simply offer your services to businesses or individuals on your own
and then the last one is actually becoming a WordPress designer or
developer. When people first get into WordPress it’s pretty common for them to
really like setting up the website for themselves
and then they start doing it for friends or family and realize that they want to
do that for clients as well. So consider doing that to sell on your site as well.
So those are the ten simple ways that you can get started and making money on
your blog let me know in the comments below which one are you going to start today and thanks for watching
