Place Ads on Your Blog
Probably the easiest way to make money with your blog is to place ads.
You can place ads in many different places on your blog, like in posts, between posts, on side bars, or even pop up ads. It is best to experiment with ad placement to see what works for your blog. Be sure not to over place ads, you don’t want your blog to look to crowded and unprofessional.

Ads is a easy way to make money with your blog but you do need a decent amount of traffic to make big money with ads.
You can take time to research how much traffic you will need to make a decent amount of money with your blog, from the research I did previously you can make about $0.50 per 1000 page views.
Not very impressive, but any money is good money.
Placing affiliate links in your blog posts is a great way to make money with your blog.
What are affiliate links? Affiliate links are links you put in your blog posts, these links are given to you by the affiliate program you choose. You will use these links to link to products or services you want to promote, and everytime that product of service sells to one of your readers you get a cut of the profit.
Its a simple concept and can be extremely rewarding. When it comes to affiliate links, there is no limit on how much money you can make. Some bloggers make $100 a month, and some make $100,000 a month.
You have alot of options when it comes to affiliate links. Which affiliate program you will use to make money with your blog will depend on your post topic.

Sell Digital Products
This is another great way to make money with your blog. Selling digital products you create is one of the top ways to make money with your blog.
If you have the time to create your own products, you will get 100% of the profits if you sell them from your own website.
Some suggestions for digital products you create
- Online Courses
- Online Coach for your Niche
Create a Paid Membership Section
Having a paid membership section on your website is a good way to make money. There are a couple of ways you can implement this method.
One way to implement paid membership section is to have a single, one time fee to gain access permanently.
Another way you can implement a paid membership section is to have a monthly subscription program. This method might be harder to sell than the one time fee, but it is a source of permanent income as long as the subscription holder keeps their subscription.
You should know, using this method to make money with your blog, you will need a very loyal, and a large following. Alot of loyal fans would likely pay for a membership section on your website.
I don’t recommend using this method from the start, instead take the time to build your following, and gain loyal readers by providing great honest content.
Sell Sponsored Blog Posts
Once you have built your blog to the point where you have a decent size loyal fan base, sponsored blog posts are a great way to make money with your blog.
What you can make from sponsored posts depends alot on your blog traffic. Some bloggers with a medium amount of traffic say they make anywhere from $150 to $500 for sponsored posts.
Some big time bloggers with a huge amount of traffic can make $1000s per sponsored post.
Once you have built you blog to a decent size, and have a decent amount of views per week, getting sponsored posts wont be hard, and the best place to look would be using google. In most cases, if you are getting alot of views per week, sponsored posts will find you!
