You’ve probably heard it said that you can make money blogging. But how? In this post, we’re going to explore some of the ways you can start making money from your blog.

First, let’s dispel a few myths about making money blogging. You don’t need a huge following to start making money. You don’t need to be an expert on a topic to make money blogging. And you don’t need to have a product or service to sell to make money blogging.

So, what do you need? A willingness to put in the work and a little bit of creativity. Let’s get started!

1. Sell ad space on your blog
One of the most common ways bloggers make money is by selling advertising space on their blog. If you have a significant amount of traffic, advertisers will be willing to pay for the exposure their products or services will get by being featured on your blog.

To start selling ad space, you can use a platform like AdSense. AdSense is a program run by Google that allows you to place ads on your website and earn money every time someone clicks on an ad.

2. Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is when you promote someone else’s product or service on your blog and earn a commission when someone buys something through one of your links.

For example, if you have a fashion blog and you mention a new pair of shoes you’re obsessed with, you could include an affiliate link to that product. If someone clicks on your link and buys the shoes, you would earn a commission from the purchase.

3. Sell digital products or services
If you have expertise in a certain area, you can create digital products—like e-books, courses, templates, etc.—that others can buy from your website. For example, if you’re good at social media marketing, you could create an e-book about how to grow your Instagram following and sell it on your website.
You can also sell services—like one-on-one coaching or consulting—directly from your blog using tools like Acuity Scheduling or Calendly. This is a great option if you want to monetise your blog without having to create any physical products yourself.

4. Sell physical products
You can also sell physical products—like clothes, jewellery, or home decor—from your blog using platforms like Shopify or Etsy. Shopify is an eCommerce platform that allows anyone to set up an online store and sell products without any prior experience in web design or development. Etsy is similar but focuses specifically on handmade or vintage items as well as art and craft supplies.

Making money from blogging doesn’t have to be complicated or require any special skillset—all it takes is some creativity and hard work! By selling ad space, affiliate marketing, digital products or services, or physical products from your blog, you can start generating income today! So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start earning!
