How do bloggers make money blogging?
When people learn that blogging can make money, people always ask us, “How can I make money blogging?”
The answer is simple, either bloggers build themselves a "brand", or they use their blog as a place to advertise. Pretty much like a regular magazine. Here are the most common ways how to make money with a blog:
Banner ads are images of different sizes, similar to regular billboards or ads in a magazine. You will typically find these banners in the sidebar or the footer of blogs, or often somewhere in between the content. Advertisers hope that your visitors will then click on those images to explore and purchase the products or services they offer. In return, the blogger then earns anywhere from a few cent to multiple dollars per click.
Giveaways & Reviews
If you’ve read blogs for any length of time, you’ve surely seen a review or giveaway and maybe participated yourself. A company here pays the blogger to review and/or given away their product to readers.
We list giveaways here because some bloggers charge to run giveaways in addition to the expected free product to keep for themselves.
Sponsored post means you work with a company and write a post about their product or service. In return they pay you for promoting their products. Depending on how popular your blog is, the average earnings for a sponsored post or a review, can be anywhere between $50 - $10,000!
Affiliate marketing involves promoting someone else’s product or service and earning a commission when one of your readers clicks on your affiliate link and makes a purchase. So for an example, if you recommend a laptop on Amazon.com, then you might earn 5% of the sales price.
