Despite what you may have heard: Blogging is NOT dead, it wasn’t dead in 2011 and it’s not dead in 2021 and it will most likely still be alive and well in 2031.
However, compared to how they were being shared ten years ago, the way blog posts work today is wildly different. If they want to keep delivering consistent results with their blogs, bloggers have to change and develop new business styles.
Since you get to choose which monetization method you want to use, developing a full-time revenue from blogging is easier than just slapping some random ads from google all over your website and hoping for the best.
Today, we’re looking at the top ways to generate income from your blog!
Below are 5 of the most effective ways to earn money blogging!
1. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is essentially making a commission off of another company’s product. When you write an article, you may end up discussing the services and items you use. If you do this, you can then have a link to those products from which you can earn a commission each time someone makes a purchase.
With affiliate advertising and marketing, you can speak about products and get paid for it by placing affiliate web links within your content. A lot of services and products have an affiliate program.
If you aren’t sure if a product or service has an affiliate program to join, try searing “the product name + affiliate program” on Google.
Once you find an affiliate product you may want to promote, check to see how to apply to their affiliate program.

2. Sponsored Posts
A sponsored blog post is where a blogger gets paid to advertise a specific item using the article, YouTube video, or Instagram story, etc.
Depending on what your website is about, it’s not uncommon for companies to reach out to you to see if you would be interested in promoting their products.
The difference between sponsored posts about a product or service and affiliate marketing is that you are paid a flat rate in advance with sponsored posts. In contrast, with affiliate marketing, you are paid a small percentage of each purchase of the product or service you are promoting.
3. Display Ads
Advertising is one of the easiest methods to make cash. I don’t use or recommend Google AdSense, mostly because their payouts are quite low in comparison to some advertising platforms such as Mediavine.
Mediavine draws from a number of different ad networks to guarantee that the highest-paying advertisers are the ones that get to place ads on your site. This means that generally, payouts from Mediavine are higher than payouts from Google AdSense even when getting the same number of views on your site.
4. Offer You Own Services
Numerous bloggers decide to supply services on their blog. What are you proficient at? What qualifications do you have?
You can provide meal and workout plan services if you’re a fitness and nutrition instructor. If you’re a life coach, you can offer your solutions via your blog. If you’re a chef, you can offer one on one cooking tutorials.
5. Sell A Digital Product
Branching off number four, you might also sell a digital product. As opposed to offering services, you can create guides, programs, webinars, and so forth.
What are you normally excellent at? What ability have you found out and become competent at? Develop an electronic product on this.
If you are an expert chef, you could sell a cookbook with tasty recipes, do you have experience with losing weight or helping people lose weight – sell a weight loss program.
