If you have been thinking about how to make money blogging, here are three ways to go about it.
You'll also have heard about bloggers who sit in a corner of their rooms with their laptops, and after some months of hard work, they are smiling to the banks.
If you really have an interest in blogging, you can also make money like all the famous bloggers you've heard and read about.
Here are five proven ways you can make money blogging.
Affiliate Links allows you to monetize your blog site by featuring products and services sold by other companies in your blog content.
How does it work? It's easy. Affiliate links are clickable text and text images that you place within your blog contents. When your readers click the links they are directed to the affiliate company’s website. If they complete action on the site, say they filled a form, buy a product or sign up for an email subscription, you'll get a commission.
Once your blog site becomes reputable for creating useful, fantastic and relevant contents, you can start generating income with sponsored contents.
How does this work? A company will pay you to craft soft-sell content that centres around its product or service and if you impress them, you guys can become partners.
Advertising is another way you can make money from blogging. However, to make any income through this, you need a decent amount of traffic to convince advertisers to publicise their products or services on your site.
When you have that traffic that will make advertisers run after you, you can monetize your blog's layout, ie, the header, sidebars, bottom strips etc with different advertising options.
