Blogging For Money How To Make Money With Your Blog

There are a lot of bloggers who blog simply for the joy of it but more often than not bloggers appear because they’ve read somewhere how easy it is to make money online blogging. Unfortunately, regardless of what they’ve read blogging for money is not that easy. If this is true why are there so many blogs out that that tell you otherwise? Because they have something to sell. Let’s face it, people bullshit when money is to be made.

The Money Is In The List?

How often have you read that the money is in the list? Quite a few times I bet. More often than not they’re trying to sell you something. It could be an email marketing software like Aweber or perhaps some plugin that will guarantee you thousands of subscribers in less than no time.

Truth be told it doesn’t matter how many subscribers you have you won’t make a bloody dime unless you have something to sell.

Blogging For Money Is Possible

When it comes to blogging for money, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you do you need something to sell. You could be an affiliate and promote products like Aweber. You could even sell a service by becoming a Lottery Affiliate showing fortune seekers how to buy their lottery tickets online.

If you have an actual product to sell you could easily promote this online and get sales that way. Unfortunately most of us don’t and so what are we supposed to do? In Mitch’s post Mitch asks the question, Is Affiliate Marketing Dead. In this post he specifically talks about Commission Junction, a site that allows you to promote many products online as an Affiliate.

I’ve been a Commission Junction member for many years and I’ve made quite a few sales with them. Unfortunately, as you will see in Mitch’s post and comments, there are certain inherent problems in being a member. Something I’ve always disliked is the way you have to ask to be able to promote a product or service only to be denied. Something else that is really frustrating is the constant emails telling you they’re no longer supporting a merchant and can you please remove all your links.

Blogging For Money With Skimlinks

Personally I’ve found Skimlinks to offer everything I needed to be able to promote goods and services online from hundreds of respected companies. Companies like Macey’s, Barnes & Nobles, Canon, Nordstrom, Sears and that’s just to name a few. There are literally hundreds of quality sites you can promote and the best thing is you don’t have to ask to join them! Even better, by installing a simple plugin you don’t even have to go to sites like Commission Junction or Amazon to get the code so you can promote a product. All you need is a the url to the product you want to sell. It’s as easy as that. That’s right, it even allows deep linking

Blogging For Money Video

I’ve actually made a video to show you just how easy it is to monetise your blog.

What you’ve viewed on the video you can see in action on this very post. Just hover and click on any of the major sites, like Sears etc. that I’ve listed above. Heck, it even works if you click on the image I’ve posted. The best thing is that when potential buyers hover over the link they see a natural url and so feel safe when clicking on it. Naturally this may not always be the case when deep linking as some of those urls can be quite long.

Being able to link to the actual page of the product your promoting is always best because you’re taking them directly to what they are looking for rather than to the site where it can be found in the hope that they find it.

If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comment section.

  1. Great post! It is still possible to make money online, but it’s not easy. Anyone who says that it is is most likely trying to sell you something :) Find something you enjoy writing about, and figure out how to monetize it.

    1. Finding the right topic to write about that will lead to sales is the major problem facing all bloggers.

      On this blog most of my income comes from my FlexSqueeze sales because my readers can see exactly what they are getting.

    1. Affiliate marketing can be profitable but it’s also pretty hard to get it to work. I reckon marketing products is probably a better way to go. You just need to build your readership as well as your traffic.

      1. Indeed! It takes a ton of research, planning, and just plain hard work. I try not to even look at my site’s stats for the first few months, and concentrate solely on quality content and social sharing.

  2. Twitter:
    Hey thanks a lot for sharing this.. You have explained in a very nice way and I am gonna follow that for sure. thanks again :)

  3. I’ve never actually tried affiliate marketing, only ads such as adsense. I’ve always wanted to try affiliate marketing but never fully understood how it works. Thanks I’ll definitely try some of these methods.

  4. Nice post..I mostly try to promote Cost Per Action offers. Its easy but all you need is targeted traffic.

    1. I prefer to promote products, except for my lottery blogs, as sales offer more of a return.

  5. Nice Post Sire :) Another great way to make money is asking a brand to purchase ad space when when they want you to review any products but are not willing to sponsor a post. Much better then click through ads.

  6. You can make money from your blog, but it needs a good guidance and hard working. If you are a team of bloggers working on one blog, it may become popular in short span of time. But if you are doing a one man show, so don’t worry it will take more time.

  7. Hi Sire..It’s a great post..I’ve been blogging for 4 almost years..But since google panda and hummingbird..I think making money with Blogging isn’t easy anymore..Getting traffic with seo is ver complicated..Many seo methods don’t work now..What do you think..?

    1. I think as long as you do not try and cheat the system and work hard at it you can still do well at SEO

  8. Great article Sire, I am going to give a try to Skimlinks… I also use Google AdSense to monetize my blog.
    Thank You.

  9. Twitter:
    I have Hear About Skimlinks Many Months Ago. Personally I have Reviews Skimlinks on my Website to But Never Ever used it to Make money.

    1. So, how did you review it without actually ever having used it?

      1. Twitter:

  10. Great one! This is what I was looking for, as I am just planning to start such activity, this made me more clear about the concept. I know its tough but some hard work will definitely put some better results! Thanks for sharing.
