How To Generate an Income From a Blog

If you are ready to work hard, keep on reading. Here are four ways you can generate an income from your blog. I have made income doing each of these, so I’ll give you my behind the scenes and also share with you my #1 suggestion at the end.

1. Sponsored Posts

If you have a lot of traffic, other people or companies will offer to pay you to link to their site in a blog post. They will pay you to write reviews, hold contests or write sponsored content.

2. Banner Advertising

Companies will also pay you to advertise their image on your sidebar or underneath their posts. For this type of advertisement, you have to make sure it doesn’t take away from the quality of your website. You don’t want people clicking away from your site.

3. Affiliate advertising

You can also promote other people’s products on your website. Any time anyone purchases one of your affiliate products through your link, you automatically get a commission for it. You can write a review on your blog and you can include an affiliate link but you have to be honest.

4. Sell Your Own Product or Service

This is the #1 way that I recommend that you earn an income from blogging. Creating your own programs or products puts YOU in control. You don’t have to worry about someone else failing to meet a client’s expectations with affiliate marketing and you don’t have to worry about an advertiser deciding not to work with you again next month and losing income.

You probably have so much stuff in your head waiting to come out! Be in control of your income as a business owner.

You can do this by creating your own course, membership site, physical product or service. What happens is that as you start to write your blog, you’ll build a relationship with your readers.

They will get to know you really well and read every post. They will start trusting you and just can’t get enough of your content! They will become excited for the journey they have taken with you and when you come out with your first product or service, they will be more likely to purchase it. This is the real way you can earn a living through having a blog while being 100% in control.

I’ll help you create a career strategy and plan so you can finally have a job or business you love that supports the life you really want.
