How to Make Money as a Blogger

There are probably many ways on how to make money as a blogger however today I wanted to share with you what I have discovered and what I am doing specifically so you too can consider blogging to make money!

Recently I discovered a very advanced platform for entrepreneurs who wanted to learn how to share their passions, and do so via a blog.

Making money online is definitely not the easiest thing to do. But if you are equipped with all the right tools and all in one place then this journey becomes alot easier than you think.


Some Tips to Help How to Make Money as a Blogger

You must definitely find your passion.

To begin with your blog can take time to take shape and receive consistent traffic, so writing about your passion will feel like more a labor of love than an arduous, monotonous event!

Writing what you love and what you know will keep yourself interested and you have to really consider “Who is my Visitor?”

They came to your blog, because they typed in specific keywords.  They want relevant, good honest information and someone (that’s you) who knows what they “need” from their visit. You give the goods, the “solution” and you not only have a happy reader, you will no doubt have a loyal follower and them coming back.

So if you want to really know how to make money as a blogger – then picking a niche that your are passionate about is a fantastic start!

Sharing links to Affiliate products is how to make money as a blogger. Of course these products will definitely need to be in alignment with what your niche is about.

You wouldn’t have a blog you have taken the time to write on say – weight loss and exercise tips – and send your visitor via a link to jewellery or something that is nothing about what your topics are about. Very important to stay congruent with what your are promoting.  Of course there are many blogs out there that have a variety of topics and this would be fine, but if yours is on a particular niche, then keep your content and affiliate links on the same page so to speak.

Get Social Media and Other Bloggers Commenting

Google loves sites that prove to have engagement and are popular so get sharing your value based content on Social Media – become part of groups that assist each other in blog comments.

How does this help you and how to make money as a blogger?  Well more engagement means your content will probably be found more often in organic searches, hence unique visitors checking out your posts and your offers.  So get social and engaging now!

That niche you are writing daily about. Well now it’s time to connect worthy Affiliate products that you can send your interested reader too.  There are many affiliate networks and places like Amazon and Click bank where you can find suitable products.

  1. Thank you for writing this article. I am new to online business. . I am trying to create a place for dog owners to come to with all their needs. I am a little confused. Is each post I create considered a blog or is that a separate thing. Do I need to create a blog roll?
    Thanks again.

    • Hi Jen and thanks for your comments. Each blog post will have its own unique url which means every post you write may be found by dog owners or in the dog niche when they do a google search.
