The Art of Blogging: How To Make Money

In my earlier post – The art of Blogging: Business or Hobby, based on research, I highlighted how much bloggers could earn just from the act of what they love doing best.

The blogs mentioned have success stories of  from-nothing-to-something, with ‘something’ varying from $5,000 (Retire at 21) to $2,330,000 (The Huffington Post). Some have even inspired alot to become bloggers.

Let’s get to it. How does one make money from Blogging? There are a number of ways, and different blogs use one or more methods.  Below is how you can make money from blogging:

Advertising Banners

By far the most popular advertising method so far in 2009. Website owners love this because they know they are guaranteed the money, other techniques such as affiliate marketing can go up and down a lot depending on what you promote.

CPM Advertising

This method is really popular for the website’s that receive a huge amount of traffic, advertisers pay you for impressions rather than sales or clicks! As long as you can predict your impressions which is usually east to do, you know how much you will earn.

Affiliate Sales

Selling on commission depending on your niche can be a huge earner and is by far my biggest earner. You promote great products and then get great commissions.

Pay Per Click

By far the easiest way to earn money online from a website or blog is from Google Adsense and being paid per click. Can be very lucrative if done right!
