How to Profit from Your Blog

I started blogging years ago when everyone started the family blogs. Eventually I got the opportunity to monetize some of my content. Things continue to ebb a flow with the monetary part of blogging. 

It can be a challenge to turn a profit with your blog, but money can come rolling in once you nail it. It is best not to rely on one method, and fortunately, there are a few you can use straight away. From placing affiliate links to connecting to ad services, here are a few of the best ones.

Offer Relevant Products

Everything on a blog should be relevant to the target niche. There is no point placing posts about lacy underwear on a model train-building blog. Customers just won't engage, and you would never be able to sell products they aren't interested in. For example, a programming blog could benefit from selling white-label products such as independent software vendors merchant services. Offering products you make or partner with can bring in some extra money. 

Include Affiliate Links

One of the most common ways to make money from a blog is with affiliate links. This is a genuine method that can be lucrative, but it relies on traffic. The more people that engage with a blog post, the higher the chances of a purchase. However, any affiliate links must also be relevant. For instance, you can place links to CD Keys video games within video game review posts. From each purchase via your link, you will earn a small commission from that sale.

Profit with Your Blog Sponsored Posts

Sponsored posts are a better way to make money as a freelancer as you are paid directly and don't need to rely on links and leads. If you are serious about blogging and put some time and effort into it, you can make between $500 and $2,000 per month. Methods like sponsored posts will contribute significantly to your income. Sponsored posts include product assessments, reviews, and placed content offered by third-party blogger outreach SEO services.

Connect to Ad Services

Ads make the world go around, and the web is no different. Ad revenue can be very lucrative as you get paid for views and clicks without the need for a purchase. Because of this, ad revenue is based more on website traffic, so it helps to learn how to increase this. Ad services such as Google Ads are very easy to set up and connect directly to your blog. Traffic, ad views, and clicks are monitored, and this is a very easy way to make passive income without lifting a finger.

Bring in More Traffic

The more people that come to your site, the higher the chances of making money. Higher traffic means sponsored post advertisers will want to reach out. And other methods like affiliate links and ads are more likely to make money. The best methods of increasing traffic are to create more relevant content, learn about search engine optimization (SEO), and place pay-per-click (PPC) ads. Of course, the latter will cost you some money but can be very powerful.


Leading customers to relevant products based on content is an effective way to make a profit with your blog. Sponsored posts and ads are excellent, too, but all rely mostly on web traffic.
