Start to monetize your blog:
As the title imply How to start a profitable blog, if don’t monetise your blog, it is not profitable until you do.
you have your blog live online with some visitor are coming to read your contents now, what remain now is to start making money from your blog.
You can monetize your blog in so many ways. Here are the easiest way.

- Sell your own ads pace
- Affiliate marketing
- Sell digital products eg ebooks, video, courses, music webinar, podcast etc.
- Sell physical products.
Let’s start to discuss each of the opportunity listed above one by one.
I would like to explain Google Adsense because it is very easy to use, user friendly and it’s the easiest way to monetize a blog.
There are many other Google Adsense alternative out there but I’m highly recommend you Google Adsense.
What is Google Adsense?, It is a program in which Google use to match you with a brand to place their ad on your blog and they rewards you for placing their ad on your blog.
Google Adsense is a pay per click (ppc) program, which means the more click you get the more money you will make.
But the down side of it is that Google reject any site under construction and it heard for newbie to be accepted into the program.
The program is free to join, head to Google Adsense, sign up and Google Adsense team will give you an instruction on what to do next.
Sell your own ad spaces:
This is another form of Adsense. You can sell a space on your website directly to an advertisers, if don’t want middleman.
In case of Google Adsense, they react as a middleman. They match you with an advertisers and they pay you 65-70% of what the advertisers pay to them.
In the case of direct Adsense, you have to walk directly to the advertisers or use one way or the other to convince them to place ad on your blog.
The merits of this is that, the advertiser pay you the whole money.
How to get an advertisers to place their ad on your blog:
- Write a killer advertise with us page
- Email them directly (write a killer massage)
- Walk to them directly to discuss with them on how your blog can help them to boost or grow their business.
Remember don’t forget to show case your traffics stats to them as tool of persuasion.
Good luck with This method of monetising your blog. I wish you success all the way.
Affiliate marketing is the process of recommending other’s products and services to your readers, if they make a purchase, you get a commission(%).
This is a huge way to make money online or from your blog easily. Many blog owner(marketer) are making 6 figure from affiliate marketing.
The good thing about this is that, you don’t need to have a products. Your own is to refer people to other’s products if they make purchase, you will a cut of that amount.
I will like to encourage you more on this because if you aren’t involve yourself with the right program, you can’t make descent amount.
If other are are making 4-7 figure, you would be making 1-3 figure which is very poor.
Before joining any affiliate program, firstly, consider the commission rate and payment method of that program.
This is every important because the same effort you will use to promote the low program, that you will need to promote high ticket program.
I did mistake about payment method and I’m not be able to collect my money. So take this seriously.
Sell digital products:
Digital products are downloadable and soft copy products on the internet. Eg. Ebooks, video, music, webinar, podcast etc.
You create them and promote them to the wilder audience through your blog.
Many blogger are making million dollar every month for doing this.
You too can, but remember you have to be creative in every products, you want to create.
Because people like new things always.
Sell your physical products:
Do you own a store or any retails outlets?, You can embedded it to your blog site and market to the whole world.
You can use e-commerce website like woo-commerce or shopify. To create your online store and embedded it to your blog.
Many business this days are into blogging, why because it drives a lot of traffic to their business and in business world the more traffics you get the more opportunities to make sales you have.
