Success Tip of the Day: 2 of the Most Common Ways to Make Money With Your Blog

This is a very common question that I get from quite a few people on facebook and also on my blog. I get asked all the time – “how is it possible to make money online, and from blogging”.

Theres actually a few ways you can do this.

One of them is called Google Adsense. How it works is you basically give Google permission to place ads on your site and when someone comes on your blog and clicks on them you can make some money.

These ads can be anything from car ads from Ford, to an ad from Best Buy selling computers.

So all that happens is that different ads get randomly placed onto your blog or website, and then when someone clicks on that ad you can make around $0.15-$1.00 per click.

So basically you need a massive amount of traffic on your blog to make much money lol.

The second way to make money from your blog is with affiliate marketing.

You can do this with 100’s of different companies but the concept is usually about the same across the board. Its actually a little similar to Google Adsense with a bit of a twist.

You place a website link to the “store” that your affiliating with on your blog – like amazon or best buy.

This can be in the form of a banner ad or just a plain link, what ever works best 🙂 But this time when someone clicks on it, they are taken to the online “store” and when they purchase a product you actually get a commission from that!

Pretty sweet huh?

So instead of getting a few cents from a click on an ad, you can get paid with a commission from any purchased products through you. This is usually around a 20-40% commission per purchase.

Most commissions aren’t that great, but what if I could actually show you a company you can affiliate with where you can get 100% of the commissions? So when someone spends 25$, 100$ or even $1000 you get ALL the money!

Sounds a little better huh? lol

The products they sell are actually online blogging and marketing courses to help you promote your blog and get more traffic.

This is actually what I’ve been personally using to retire and move to Thailand – All from just blogging a few hours a day 🙂
