How Do You Make Money With Blogging

What is blogging ?

Ok so how do you make money with blogging and what exactly is a blog ?

Well the word Blog comes from the term Weblog and suggests it is some thing that you are using to log your thoughts and activities online.

It is basically a website that you are using to offer your opinions and ideas on a particular subject that you are very interested in, so that others out there can either learn from your ideas and they can choose to leave you comments and feedback with their personal thoughts, helping you to advance your own knowledge on the subject.

Why Use A Blog.

Blogging is a great way for you to build up some trust and help you to become an authority on the particular subject that you are looking to cover.

You do however need to make sure that the content that you are producing is relevant at the time of writing it and also that it is of some value to the person that is reading it, most of all make sure that what ever you write, you do it in a conversational manner.

Building trust with the people that are reading your blog is very important, would you go out to buy a new car for example and buy off a salesman that you you did not trust ?

No, not if you are anything like me.  I would be too wary of them and i would feel that they where just after my money.

So you do have to know your stuff when trying to get your point across to the people that have reached your website looking for answers to the problem that they have been searching for.

Ways To Make Money With Blogging.

So how can you make money online with blogging ?

Well there are a few ways that you can turn your blog into an online business and start to make money from it, here are a few of the ones that I find work best.

Product Reviews.

A really good way for you to build up some trust with your target audience is to regularly review new products that they may be thinking of trying out or buying, this will help you to establish your self as an authority on the subject that you are looking to cover.

Have you ever been on to Amazon to buy a product, but before you decide to buy you will have a good look through many of the reviews that have been posted by people that have already bought the product ? I know I have.

There are various ways that you can decide to do the review such as writing out a structured review of the product and posting it to your blog, you can also do a video of your product review which you would then want to post to your YouTube channel, then put the video on your blog along with the written post to the page.

The key here is to write product reviews for products that you have chosen to become an affiliate of, so that readers can read your review and then click your affiliate link to go and buy the product in question.

How Do You Make Money With Blogging

Building an Email List.

This is one of the most important ways for you to be making money from your blog, the more people you have on your email list the more money that you are going to make.

As with any marketing campaign it is all about the numbers, ask any sales person and they will tell you that the more people that they get to see, the higher the chance of them making some sales which in turn means that they are going to make more money.

It really is that simple.

Building an email list is how all the successful internet marketers have managed to go from £0 to making 6 and 7 figure sums every year which has enabled them to quit their day jobs and live the life that we are all looking for and finally be financially free to do and go where they want.

If you look at your own email account and count up how many companies you are receiving regular emails from and think back to the times you have seen a product in one of those emails, then gone to their website to purchase that product.

All of the big companies are using email marketing as they know that the internet is here to stay.

So by building your email list and keeping in regular contact with your subscribers and recommending the products that you review you have a very high chance of some of your subscribers reading your product review and if it fills a need or problem they are looking to solve then they will most likely purchase the product from you, as you have built up that trust between you and your subscribers.

Summary.

So there you have it, there are some other ways that you can make money using your blog but the two that i have described are the ones that i feel are going to make you the most money from the time and effort that you will have to put in to drive traffic to your website.

Traffic is a very intensive subject so i am not going to be covering that here as there are many ways you can drive traffic to your site.

    Blogging gave me the opportunity to finally quit my job. It feels great knowing that I can work from home full-time and have time freedom to pretty much do whatever excites me in the moment! 🙂

    We’re in the information age, blogging is VERY profitable if done right. Glad that your #1 recommendation paves the way to blogging success 🙂

    Thanks!

    • Hi Colton, Thats great news that you have been able to quit you job with the help of writing your own blog. Yes we are in the information age, the problem is that not many people will actually put that information to good use as they are to busy following all these celebrities out there rather than focusing on their own lives.

  • Hi, Mark

    I enjoyed reading your post on how to make money with blogging, and you suggested some great ways here 🙂 I’ve heard all about email marketing beforeand how it can be a powerful way to make more money online. However, what is the best email autoresponder software I could use for my own campaigns?

    Cheers. Neil

    • Hi Neil,

      Glad you enjoyed this post. As to what autoresponder is the best i can only speak about the one i am using myself which is Get-Response, there are many companies out there which offer some great products but for me i choose this one due to price and the look of the software and how easy i found it to use. Hope that helps.
