Let’s look at each monetization method in more detail
1) AFFILIATE MARKETING
Affiliate marketing is a low-cost, high-rewarding method of making money.
How to Start (Action Steps)
- Start with creating an affiliate account on Amazon or any other affiliate programs
- Select any product of your choice
- You will be given a unique link; include the link in your blog.
- You will receive a percentage commission for a purchase made using your referral link within the next 24 hours.
2) SPONSORED REVIEWS
A sponsored review is essentially a product review in which the blogger is paid a considerable sum of money to write the review. If your site gets ample web traffic monthly, you can ask for sponsored reviews. Many companies and brands pay bloggers to create product reviews for them.
3) FREELANCING SERVICES
You can provide services to various clients if you have any talents or appropriate experience in any field. In that situation, a blog could be used as a portfolio, and there is no better method to demonstrate your abilities than to start a blog about it.
4) GOOGLE ADSENSE
Google Adsense is a Google-owned advertising platform that is one of the most common ways for beginners to make money from blogging.
In a nutshell, you sign up and give Google permission to post adverts on your blog. You have control over where and how many adverts appear. In exchange, you will be paid either when someone clicks on your ad or when the ad reaches a certain number of views on your site.
Adsense has the advantage of displaying adverts that are relevant to your readers. This means that adverts relevant to your blog’s content will be shown to your readers. Depending on their browsing history, they may also receive advertising for other things they’ve previously expressed interest in.
5) CONSULTING AND COACHING
When you start a blog about a topic, you quickly establish yourself as an authority on the subject. If you’re currently authoring ebooks and selling online courses, why not expand your horizons by becoming a coach or consultant!?
If you run a home improvement blog, for example, you might try selling interior design consultancy as a service.
How to Begin (Action Steps)
- Decide on a specialty
Decide what kind of coaching or consulting services you’d like to provide. Consider any methods you can assist others and develop a service around it.
- Market yourself
Tell your audience about your new offering. As they already know and trust you, they could probably be interested in your new coaching service as well.
You have a lot of possibilities to make money from a free blog. Either perfect one blog monetization method or experiment with various money streams to see what works best for you or your business.
