I have been blogging for a number of years and have found many great ways to make money online. When I first started building WordPress websites, I had no background in HTML, website design, or anything that resembled building a website. I only knew how to repair and build computers. This is exactly why my first website was all about Computer tips.
Now days it is so much easier for anyone to build a website, regardless of their background and knowledge. Dabbling into the blogging world is almost irresistible as it is very cheap to get into and there is a lot of money to be made.
3 Great Ways to Make Money Online from Blogging
There are literally hundreds and thousands of ways to make money online from blogging, however I am just going to list my favorite three ways.
#1. Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing simply means that you sell other peoples products or services for a commission. There are various websites where you can sign up to become an affiliate and you will be offered the chance to in roll in many affiliate programs. Websites such as Commission Junction, Clickbank, Sharasale, and far too many more to mention, will allow you to sell other people’s products.
Once you have signed up at these websites, and have been accepted into a particular affiliate program, you can then start adding banners and links on to your website. This is an extremely simple process and is just a matter of copying some HTML code and placing it into your website. You will be amazed at what payouts you can get them simply selling other people’s products.
#2. Google Adsense
I gather everyone here has heard about Google, that if you are not a Webmaster, you might not have heard about Google AdSense. This is a pretty simple way of making money online. All you have to do is sign up for a Google AdSense account, grab the AdSense code for the add, and then place it on your website. When someone clicks on an ad on your website you will be paid money.
Sounds very simple, and it is, however people often get banned because they do the wrong thing. You must stick to the AdSense terms and conditions and not ask anyone to click on your AdSense ads. If you stick to the rules, you could possibly make a lot of money.
Using the Google AdSense program is much better if you have your own website. Of course you can contribute content to AdSense revenue sharing sites, however I definitely recommend trying it on your own website.
#3. Selling Ebooks
When you build a website in a particular niche ( a certain topic) you will find people that would like more information. For example, at my computer tips website I often have website visitors that are interested in learning computer related subjects in detail. Therefore I provide any books for sale that my website visitors might be interested in.
A website is not the only place you can sell an e-book. You can submit your e-book to Amazon on.com or even sell it as a Kindle version. An e-book is definitely very close to passive income because you can write the e-book and have money flowing in for years to come.
