If someone tells you it’s impossible, they’re talking about their own limitations, not yours.

Unfortunately, it is very common to see so many people who spend their lives waiting for the ideal moment to live it, simply because they are afraid of what others will say, as if those who make some negative comments when they hear about their dreams, deserve such a sacrifice.

All the jokes and negative comments you can get when you say that you want to try to live off a blog and make money on the internet will only be that, words. IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE MONEY WITH A BLOG? HOW CAN I DO IT?

Of course, it is possible… and a lot! However, not everything is money. Definitely, this is one of the most frequent questions from those who are curious to know the reason why you can quit your job, create a blog, and make money on the Internet.

When creating a blog (or a website), most people leave because of the topic that is in fashion, or for that business idea with which they think they will make more money (because with that idea some person did well), even if they don’t like the topic in question at all.

It’s recommended that you go on that topic that you like so much that you would talk about it for free. The topic that you are so passionate about and that you could spend hours and hours talking about and investigating, without anyone paying you for it.

If you have the opportunity to create your dream job, why not make it into something you really like and enjoy?

If what you are talking about is something you are passionate about and you put a lot of effort and perseverance into it, little by little the income will come, and the satisfaction of doing what you really like and professionally, there is no better feeling than that.

 

CREATE A COMMUNITY

On the other hand, it’s not about wanting to generate income from day one, but about showing your community how much you know about each topic, and then later thinking about monetizing your website.

Remember that what you want to get with your website is to have a profitable business, and one of the key points to generate sustainable income, is to create a community that is really interested in what you say, and that also trusts you.

LISTEN TO YOUR READERS

After launching each of your content, try to interview your most loyal followers and ask them for feedback. This way you will know what opportunity your content has to better.

When you connect the interests of your readers with your skills, you will have found a product or service to sell to them.

THAT HELPING OTHERS BE YOUR MOTOR

Never let the desire to make money be above the value you want (and should) add to the people who read you.

If the main reason you do this is to generate income (of course it should be one, but not the main one), you can take decisions that won’t make you feel good about yourself for a long time.

Work hard to make helping others your priority, and you’ll create a much more sustainable income, have more loyal readers, and feel like you’re living with purpose and passion.

7 WAYS TO MAKE MONEY WITH A BLOG

1.-AFFILIATE MARKETING   

It is probably the laziest way to earn money because you do not require a product or service of your own and consists of earning a commission by promoting products or services of other people or companies.

Find a product you really like (this is very important) and join their affiliate platforms. Two of the most popular platforms to work on as an affiliates are Jvzoo and Amazon.

You can then promote the product with your readers and receive a commission for each sale.

On the internet, you can find many tutorials about how to monetize with these platforms. However, don’t get started if you haven’t already done your website, as that’s the first step in getting accepted into affiliate programs.

2.-SELLING ADVERTISING

It is a product/service exchange + receiving payment in money, in exchange for sharing your experience with your readers.

This is possible once you have thousands of followers and readers on the blog. There are bloggers who get their first sponsorship this way.

ADSENSE BANNERS

For most niches, the minimum profit is $1 per 1,000 visits, although it is usually around $3.

This varies depending on the niche, the quality of your content, the advertiser, the location of your reader, the authority of your website, and various other factors.

3.-SPONSORSHIPS

Similar to the first example of the previous option, but without the cash. It consists of an exchange of product/service in return for you to write about your experience.

This option can be put into practice from the first months of your blog and help you to reduce a lot of costs, especially when you are just starting.

4.-PREMIUM MEMBERSHIPS

We are in the age of information and the Internet provides the ideal medium for the exchange of “know-how” for some money.

Do you know good fishing places? Do you know how to play the guitar? Are you the owner of the secrets for a successful marriage? Do you have a recipe for delicious brownies? Do you know the tricks to save electricity? If so, send this kind of exclusive information to those “premium” members of your website.

It’s important that you first build up enough authority on your topic and the trust of your readers before you charge a premium membership.

5.-SALE OF INFO PRODUCTS

Can you imagine making money in your sleep? This is completely possible. 

 

An “info product” or information product in digital format, consists of the creation of a digital guide (whether it’s Kindle, simple PDF, audio recordings or digital video recordings, and in some cases a combination of all of the previously mentioned), in which you offer information about something you consider yourself competent in (from the best recipes for homemade cakes or marketing techniques, to how to tie your shoelaces in less than 5 seconds).

You see, by creating an “info product” you can sell ALL kinds of information and those sales happen even in your sleep. This monetization option is one of the most used and recommended. Basically all you need is to create a website, gain some authority, create an “info product” that resolves some of your reader’s problems, and promote it on social networks.

The math is simple… If you join all these ways of income in a popular blog, you have the perfect formula to earn money online. If, for example, you sell a digital product for $1, you get monthly web traffic of 300,000 people, and at least 10% of those readers buy your ebook… Exactly, you’ll make thousands of dollars! And this is just one of the many ways to monetize a blog.

6.-SELLING DOMAIN NAMES OR YOUR OWN WEBSITE

 

Just as you read it: stories abound about domain names that were bought for $8 a few years ago and today are sold for thousands and even millions of dollars.

This is not a guarantee that the same thing will happen with your domain name, but if you are good with names, you might get a good deal! You may ask yourself: How can I do that? All you really have to do is buy attractive domain names for different niches, and then put them up for sale on some auction site.

On the other side, there are also those who create a basic website, put it up for monetization (making money) for a few months, and then sell it. The selling price usually amounts to 12 to 24 times the monthly profit the website has been making. Pretty good deal, right? In fact, there are people who have sold their websites ºup to $60,000.00 dollars in just over 1 year of having created them.

There are many sites to sell websites already created, such as Empire Flippers and Flippa. The best thing is that once you learn how to create a website and monetize it, replicating it is relatively simple (Note…that doesn’t mean it’s just creating the website and going to sleep the next day either).

 

7.-PATREON It is similar to the idea of the “Premium” Membership, but using a platform outside our website and to create your community.

This form of monetization is ideal for bloggers, YouTubers, and any other type of creative entrepreneur with a particular hobby or skill (singing, writing, drawing, acting, etc.). With Patreon, you don’t need to have hundreds of thousands of readers to make a living, as it is a much less quantity driven option that focuses more on the quality of readers and the value you bring to your work.

With this platform, bloggers and digital entrepreneurs can make a living from their passion by allowing their readers, fans or followers to support them financially through a system of “micro-payments”.
