So, maybe you’ve already started a blog and have been writing awesome posts for awhile now… but you’re still making zero dollars?
It’s time to change that! But how do you do it?
In this post, we’ll show you how to monetize a blog and make money online with 15 proven and profitable ways.
Let’s get started!
1. Start Affiliate Marketing
If you’re wondering how to start a profitable blog, you should look into affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is one of the most common ways bloggers make money. With affiliate marketing, you promote the products of other businesses. Every time someone purchases the product via one of your affiliate links, you earn a commission.
So, say your commission is $5 for every sale. If 100 people buy the product by clicking your affiliate link, you make $500—cha-ching!
The easiest way to find products to promote on your blog is by joining affiliate programs like:
Sign up and browse through affiliate sites like these to find products you can promote. There’s pretty much an affiliate program for every industry or niche; fashion, food and drink, education, health, and more.
It’s best to choose products related to your blog’s niche. By choosing products that are related to your niche, you know that your audience will be interested in them and more likely to buy.
For instance, if your blog is about fitness, you should promote fitness-related products like athletic wear, exercise equipment, and so on.
Once you’ve created your affiliate site and started getting traffic, you can use OptinMonster to unlock even more affiliate revenue.
For instance, Top 6 Digital created this exit-intent optin to promote their affiliate links and increased their revenue by 30%!
