If you’re reading this post review, you’re in the right place and probably want a better way to earn money from your blog.
Making money blogging can be done in different ways, with each way different from the other. In most cases, the number of traffic you generate will determine the money you’ll generate from your blog.
There are several methods of making money online from your blog. But in this article, I will be showing you the 5 highly effective way of making money blogging.
1. Pay per click advertising
The most popular one is google adsense a pay per click advertisement from google. To start using google adsense, go to their official page www.google.com/adsense and sign up. Google will serve you with contextual ads (text or banner) of different sizes. Copy the ad codes and paste in your blog. You make money when someone clicks on the ads. Google gives you the option to place up to three ads in different section of your site.
Making reasonable from your money using google adsense requires you to have lots of traffic coming to your blog and most importantly the click through rates (CTR) and cost per click (CPC). The click through rates will depend on the position you place the ad in your website.
When you have ads place between articles, you’ll have higher click through rate. The cost per click (CPC) will depend on the niche of the blog. A blog targeting weight loss will have higher CPC than the blog targeting internet marketing.
The traffic you generate too can affect the CTR. People who visit your site in search of information (organic traffic), have higher chances of CTR than the ones coming from social media.

2. CPM advertising Networks
This is very similar to pay per click advertising, but here you make money based on the number of page views (popularly call impression) that the ads is serve at your site. CPM stands for cost per mille (that is cost per 1000 impression)
For instance, if your blog have 50,000 site visitors and serves banner with $2 CPM, it means your site will be making 100 dollars a month.
CPM varies with network. There are networks that pays you as low as $0.01 and networks that can pay up to $10 per impression. But this will also depend on your niche and your traffic. CPM, then to work well with sites that have high page views like social media, online forum etc.
Some of the CPM network include
- Value click
- Right media
- Casale media
- Tribal fusion
3. Affiliate marketing
This is the most popular way of making money using a blog. Affiliate marketing is simply promoting other people’s product for a commission.
Here is how it works: you choose a product similar to your niche, get a link unique link, promote it and you make money when there is a sale through your link. Money from affiliate marketing is call commission.
In affiliate marketing, you can make up to 75% of the total money. For instance, if a product or service you’re promoting is sold at $100 and the commission is 75%, when there is a sale, you make $75.
Affiliates can promote affiliate product in various ways using tools provided by the merchants. It can be banner or text link. The type of marketing here varies; it can cost per action (CPA) or cost per lead (CPL).
Some affiliate network include
- Commission junction
- Link share
There are residual affiliate products which makes it possible for you to make money over and over from the customer you refer to the merchant. That is you make commission whenever the person buys the product or service.
Using these networks, it’s better to promote merchants that offer service that require people to subscribe or renew the service with time. One network I personally recommend for anyone is site build it.
Some networks are:
4. Selling of ad space
Selling ad space is my number one way of making money online using a blog. This is pretty the same way most establish websites like google, facebook and most successful blog make money online.
For the essence of blogging, I have found a plugin which simplifies the entire process for you. This plugin is call IOI publisher. The plugin makes everything simple and very easy to customize. It also makes it possible for you to make 100% of the money from the advertisers.
Well the plugin is not free, but will cost you $47 one-time payment. But that is nothing compare to the money you’ll be making. One ad space can return the money back to you. Well with IOI publisher, it’s a win-win situation.
You can create short reports of 7-30 pages, convert it to ebooks and sell them in your blog. Using sites like payza or 2co, you can put a buy button to your product. Ebook sales have continued to go up and will continue.
