This tutorial is for those of you who already have a blog, have been at it for a few months, and now want to make money blogging.
How to Make Money with a Blog should not be the first thing you search for after setting up your blog.
My Journey Making Money Blogging
I launched my first blog in April 2012 with the clear intention to use it as a platform for my self-published novels.
First month of blogging? I earned $1.05, and that was before taxes.
As a matter of fact, I did not make any “serious” money from my blog for almost six months, after which I decided to go the advertising route, using WordPress’ WordAds.
First month of hosting advertising on my blog? I earned $32.69.
Things changed. Slowly. After trying multiple revenue streams, some of which dried up during the almost seven years of blogging.
This is my take on how to make money blogging. What works, what doesn’t. It’s not just a list of the things you can do, but also a list of what you should do.
Because, yes, you can ask for donations, and there are quite a lot of bloggers who have done this (me included) or you could try to crowdfund your way into full-time blogging, but it’s not the best way to go about it.
Here are the best ways to earn money with a blog:
P.S. This is the kind of content you will receive as a bonus(on top of the written feedback on your blog) if you pre-order my book, The Art of Blogging, as soon as possible.
Only 23 spots left.
By reading The Art of Blogging you will:
- Stop comparing your blog to those around you and instead learn to leverage your own unique assets.
- Discover the secrets to creating amazing, compelling blog content that brings readers back again and again.
- Learn how to increase your blog traffic and build a solid platform.
- Develop a solid social media strategy for capturing viral growth through the use of social media.
- Improve your productivity, learning to work smarter not harder, and take concrete steps to transform your blog into a business.
The Art of Blogging is not for everyone. Unfortunately. Some people want the easy way out, some sort of scheme that allows them to avoid paying their dues. No. You got to pay your dues. You need to work hard, be consistent, and learn as much as you can. Never become complacent. Always assume responsibility for where you’re at, and assume that only you can be the one who takes you to the next level.
In blogging, in art, in life, in love, that’s the only mindset that ensures success.
But this book can more than help you. Whenever you feel stuck, discouraged, angry at yourself, bitter, whenever you feel like giving up, there will surely be a chapter that will manage to cheer you up, offer the motivation you need to keep punching those damn keys.
It’s not an easy journey, but why not make it easier on yourself and learn from those who already climbed the mountain? Learn from their struggles, from their mistakes.
Only available as an e-book, to be released on the 15th of March.
Until then, you will receive bonus content in the form of weekly tutorials starting 15th of February (exclusive content).
Oh, and I’ll take a close look at your blog and provide you with a detailed written feedback.
