How do Bloggers make Money

How I Made $$$ in a Month – The Secrets are within Your Reach Now

One sure-fire way to make money is by blogging.

Why I’m saying this is because you can set up your blog 100% free by using sites like blogger.com.

You only need a Gmail account to get started.

After picking a suitable niche which you’re comfortable writing about, the going gets easy from there.

Remember you need to be passionate about what you are writing.

I started out like this and soon tumbled on the money path, which has led me made more than$$$ a month initially and now more. Here is the secret that I want to share with you on how to make money blogging, which is how I charted my money pathway.

How do bloggers make money

Well I can hear you people asking, ‘Can you make money blogging?’

While not all blogs are successful, there are

a huge chunk of blogs that do make money.

I’m making money through this blog certainly not by ads, or selling e-Books.

There are great bloggers like Neil Patel, Brian Clark, and Hiten Shah who rake in millions from their blog. While I’m yet to reach that peak, I’m on my way up thereJ.

But you need to start somewhere to get to the top, don’t you?

How do Bloggers make Money

 

Must Read:- My Top 20 Favourite Blogs that Train You to Make Money Blogging

Teaching is Good

The best way bloggers make money fast is by crunching numbers, talking to experts, reading books, and gaining knowledge.

One great way to make money is teaching. If key note speakers and professors can do it, a blogger can definitely capitalize on it and make money.

By being an expert on your niche, you can teach, mentor, and even become a businessman by using the blog as a magnet to attract clients.

Many bloggers make money by publishing books, sponsoring courses or software on the side.

Sales Funnels are Effective

This is another of the best ways to make money where a company grabs your attention by dangling a freebie which is irresistible in spite of being cheap and soon the company persuades you into buying some expensive stuff which they really want to promote in the first place.

You can use this in blogging too.

Except do it in reverse.

By selling a cheap e-Book, you will not find any money.

You need to have some expensive products you can offer after the e-Book sells.

The best way to do is selling the expensive products first and then move on to the cheap products.

This is definitely more profitable.

So, how I made more than $$$ a month

You need to start with a goal in mind and build on it slowly and steadily.

Chart out a plan on how you want to make money from your blog.

The first thing you need is a product which you can sell. Just writing won’t get you anywhere.

You need to keep creating products along the line to make more money, so be prepared for investing.

Your email list is your best selling tool, so start building it.

Set up a PayPal account or Merchant Account for collecting the money your customers are going to pay.

Know what people like to hear and what they want advice on.

Check whether what you have in mind is what they’d really love to buy to solve their problem.

This will help you choose the right products to sell as it did for me.

How to get sponsored reviews

I started with http://sponsoredreviews.com/.

They take 50% commission with each review you get. If you set up your blog price to $60, then you will receive $30 only.

This is good enough, not so bad at all as something is better than nothing. I earned $30 last month from this service.

To earn money, your blog should be functioning for a minimum of three months.

It should have original content and regular blog posts and paid posts in it. You should register it with the site and get your free account.

Beautifying Your Blog

You need to make your blog enticing enough to get the money pouring in.

Make it look attractive and free of clutter.

Make it easy to navigate.

And don’t forget to include appealing images.

Content is the King. Look at the content and try with variety of ways to make the posts stand out.

Email Marketing

I started googling on some hosting and software companies.

I then sent them a proposal mail for sponsored reviews or banner advertising, and got some positive response from buyers and earned $250 from this idea.

You can see my some of the payment proof below by paypal statement:

Paypal statement

Idea to Write a Proposal Mail

Write short description about your site with PR, DA, and alexa rank.

Propose them about what you will write on review.

Describe their product/offers, etc.

Tell them that you will bring in a lot of social exposures for this review and also promote it by newsletter.

Then talk about the price you want to charge.

Market place

There are various market places where you can sell your sponsored review services like seoclerks, fiverr, etc.

I like the seoclerks and joined there.

I earned $ 60 from that place.

Visibility

If your blog has some visibility, buyers are also searching for the publishers.

I got mail from some buyers regarding sponsored review.

And I earned around $100 from there. That was directly deposited to my bank account.

I made this $$$ in a month. But, you can make it in a week or in just 2-3 days too.

I am a mom blogger and hardly get time to write and promote my blog.

That’s why I earned this money in a month but, you can make it quicker.

So, hurry up and start promoting your blog.

I haven’t started promotion of any affiliate products. If you are familiar with the affiliate marketing, then you can earn bigger amount of money.

I will be posting soon on “How to promote affiliate products easily“.

    It is perhaps not the same for everyone and it is clear there are specific things that one would need to do to make it work.

    I have not monitized my blog as my main focus for blogging in the first place is about writing great content. My resource centre page however has a few links of blogs that I promote as a way of me saying thanks to them for service that I received.

    One of these days I may think about monetizing my blog and would have this post as a reference point of how to.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I wish you all the best for all your blogging and monetization efforts.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend 🙂

  22. Hi Nisha,

    Glad to hear that you earned 400$ from sponsered reviews. I want to know more about this sponsered reviews. Iam a new blogger…kindly let me know some information

  23. Great work, Nisha. Sponsored Reviews is really a great network to make money from your blog. I have used it in the past, didn’t work quite well for me, but I still make money from sponsored posts on my blogs. Those are direct paid posts, but seems like Sponsored Reviews is becoming promising too. I will surely give it a try. Thanks for the update 🙂

  24. Hi Bhargav,
    Thanks for your kind words.

    It is depend on that what kind of requirement we get in Sponsored Reviews. Direct post is also called as sponsored post/review. Sponsored Reviews is just a source which is helping us to provide paid reviews.

    Sometimes, advertisers contact us directly for the reviews.

    I really appreciate your commenting. Hope, to see you around again.

  31. Hi Pawan,

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Have a great day ahead!

  35. Hello Nisha,

    I am really happy for you !!! Congratulations from my side.

    Nowadays Making Money Online is not a easy task. It is very difficult to find online jobs and earn some good money by doing online jobs.

    I agree with you if building a mailing list, you can reach hundreds of people to promote your new product, service or affiliate program etc but when it comes to building a email list there seems to be a lot of question about how to proceed.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful secrets with us and Wish you all the best.

    Have a great day 🙂

    Regards,
    Minakshi Srivastava

  36. Hi Nisha,

    Great to hear you’re doing well with sponsored reviews. It’s something I haven’t tried yet but will once my blog is old enough.

    I like your idea on writing proposals. Sounds great for getting more partners.

    Currently I’m promoting some affiliate products and forum marketing is doing well for me. However, I’d like to diversify and sponsored reviews seem to be a viable option.

    Thanks for sharing this.
    ~Norbert

  37. Hi Nisha,

    My earnings are from Adsense and Affiliate marketing. Sponsored review is something new to me. Will try it. Thanks for the information 🙂

  38. Hi Nisha,
    Nice post, sponsered post and reviews are the best method to earn some quick money from a blog but you need to have some stats to show in order to get the offers, but if we compare affiliate marketing vs sponsered review ,sponsered reviews are much more easy to get but when it comes to income from affiliate marketing, it is much more than sponsered post if done efficiently

  39. Great post and I like your options of monetizing blogs. I am looking at teaching and creating a product.

  40. Ola

    Nisha, to be sincere…. I wish your post is simpler for a beginner. I couldn’t really grab what you wanted to pass across! I would advice you make it simpler for the readers next time. Thanks.

  41. You have mentioned some great ways of making an income from your blogs. Everyone does this differently and each method can be effective, if you tackle it right.

    You are so right about knowing your goal and writing it down. If you don’t know what it is that you want to achieve then you are highly unlikely to achieve it!

  42. Hi Nisha,

    I always enjoy hearing how people are doing it themselves and not some review of just a site or product that is suppose to be teaching us how to make money. I think that by you sharing your results, big or small, here with your readers that you are helping others also realize and understand how they can do this as well.

    I applaud you for going after it and for what you’ve accomplished by reaching out to companies and services to ask to write a review for them. I would have never thought about that.

    I’ve been told numerous times that I should sign up with sponsored reviews but unless I’ve used the product or service I really don’t like to promote something myself. If I know the person behind the product but haven’t actually used it myself then I don’t mind because I know whatever they put out is top notch.

    I for one appreciate you sharing this with us so thank you for being so open.

    You enjoy your week now and thanks again.

  61. Hi Nisha,

    Thank you for revealing the secrets to earn good online income.I feel happy to note that you made $400. For me, I can only dream that kind of online money.

    Regarding ‘sponsored reviews’, I would like to know whether they accept sub-domain blogs(like blogger blogs)also or is it advisable to have our own website to indulge in such things.

    One more question. All you people(like Ravi, Suprabhat etc) are having beautiful and wonderful “websites”. Still why all of you are calling it as blog?

  62. Hi Rajaraman,
