Five Methods For Making Money with Your Blog

You have a blog and want some methods to use to make money with it? Try these five methods used by other marketers that have proven to be very successful to make money with their blogs.

1. AdSense

AdSense is often a great start for someone trying to make money with their blog.

It can be easily installed on just about any website on just about any subject and you can start making money almost instantly.

After you have shown that your website has money-making potential through AdSense, you can generally make more money by changing over to one of the methods below.

2. Affiliate Products

A great way to earn money is to sell affiliate products. Most of these are products owned, produced and sold by others. If you can  send them traffic with a special link you will be paid a commission whenever that traffic makes a purchase.

There are three types of affiliate programs in general:

* Electronic items like eBooks, which are usually found on

* Physical goods which are easily located on and

* Pay per action programs which you will discover on and

3. Produce and Market Products Of Your Own

Another way to make money from your blog is to produce products of your own.

You can make these physical products which can be easily set up on, or it could be a digital download product which you can easily setup on PayPal or Clickbank.

4. Membership Programs

Some really good cash can be made by starting your own membership program.

Case Study: An early blog on SEO used to monetize by selling advertising on its blog. It wasn’t making very much money. It decided to sell a membership website for its top content and for SEO support.

That same site today has almost 300 members paying $300 a month. That is almost $90,000 a month. It would be pretty hard to make that kind of money by doing AdSense or affiliate programs.

A membership program can be anywhere from $5 a month for frivolous content to $2,000 a month for high-end business programs.

5. Paid Product Reviews

Product reviews can be another proven way to make money with your blog.

You could have people pay you just to do the reviews, NOT to say positive things about their product. They are paying you for exposure, not for you to change your opinion. It is very important for you to keep your journalistic integrity and to only publish what you truly think, or you will risk losing your audience.

Paid reviews are usually seen in industries where people are doing a lot of shopping, such as the iPhone app market.

Here are five methods that many marketers have used again and again to make anywhere from a small bit of money to truly impressive sums. By finding the method that works for you, if you get good at it you might find money rolling into your bank account in no time.
