Now you have the idea! And it is very important!
Let me help you with that:
Most of the blog topics and ideas we discussed won’t have the same monetization method. Some of them are good at driving traffic but are really hard to convert.
Either way, you need to know your options of both, niches and monetization methods and choose based on that mix.
It’s easy to pick a niche for fun, but another story to pick it based on how much money it can make.
(I’ll stop you right there – any niche can make money! A lot of it… It’s just a matter of knowing your options. Some will make more and others won’t make that much but all of them will make money! So, just respect the value of your effort adequately! It should always be up to you!)
There are no specific limitations of what a blogger can and can not monetize a blog with. Monetizing a blog itself is only one small part of the big picture.
With that being said, an average blogger (beginner) has 3 general options to monetize a blog when he or she is blogging for money:
Monetize A Property (the blog itself)
Truth to be told, these are not only a digital marketer’s (bloggers in particular) options. These three options are the basics of any type of business.
I know for a fact that it sounds a little confusing at first, especially for a beginner.
No worries though… I got you covered!
I do talk about monetization and other “blogging-for-money” stuff in my Blogging for Beginners | 5 Day Bootcamp, which is completely FREE!
The information below is just a small part of it but still should be enough to get a general understanding of monetization:
1. Monetize A Property (the blog itself)
The most common and popular way to monetize a blog as a beginner is definitely to use its content commercially, without making an effort to monetize it otherwise.
The concept is simple – as long as the blog receives some significant amount of traffic, people will pay to get a piece of it.
Let’s talk about the most common ways of monetizing a blog for being a website.
- Ads – There are a lot of ad providers like Google Adsense (which is probably the best one) that will place banners and commercial text snippets on your site in exchange for money. All it takes is placing a certain code (there are a lot of plugins for newbies that help with this) in places you would like and just wait for the moment it will start paying off. You can check out my article about Google Ads by following this link.
- Banners – As long as a blog receives traffic a lot of people want to place their commercial banner on it to target this specific blog’s target audience.
- Paid Articles – A lot of times bloggers and companies will pay for a specific article to appear on your blog. As long as the blog receives traffic of course…
- Membership – Not all posts have to be available for any visitor. People will often pay to see some “hidden” content.
- Subscription – Yeap… There’s a great chance to get some bucks in exchange for the chance to subscribe. It’s pretty rare but is still worth mentioning.
- Donations – Some bloggers do not use a specific monetization method. They prefer to leave income up to people that want to thank them. That’s when donations are a great option. Might not sound like a great source of income, but it actually is for a lot of blogs.
Bonus: Sell A Site – You can always sell your site at sites like flippa.com and make money out of it!
2. Sell Product(s)
Some of you might be surprised. How can a blog sell products, it’s not an online shop.
Well… A blog is like a magnet for free traffic. Therefore in a lot of cases, it might be serving as a promoter, recommender or hype-man for a specific product.
A simple link in a text or in a menu can turn a blog into a commercial platform.
There are two types of products that a blogger can sell:
- Physical Product – Any product that can be “touched”. For example – Shoes, CD’s, Books, Cars, Houses etc. There are a couple of ways to sell them:
- Create Your Own
- Affiliate Marketing – Sell products to other people and get a commission for it.
- Dropshipping – (requires an e-store) buy products from other sites once somebody buys from your store and send it to a customer. Without ever seeing the product.
- Digital Product – Products like online e-books, movies, games etc. Anything that is strictly digital and doesn’t have any type of physical appearance.
- Create Your Own – Writing an educational digital book is one of the most common ways that bloggers monetize their blogs with.
- Affiliate Marketing – There’s a huge amount of digital products on the market. Bloggers can earn a lot of money by just linking to them.
3. Sell Service(s)
Just like in the case of selling products, services are once again another option that a blog can be monetized with, by motivating its traffic to do a specific action.
- Physical (real-life) Service – Any type of service which is delivered in the world outside of computers and other digital products. Selling flight tickets or hotel reservations would be a great example.
- Digital Service – Freelancing and support are one of the best examples of digital service. And it’s not rare for a blogger to show off the skills and offer the service.
Both of these services can be offered by a blogger or be a part of affiliate marketing (recommendation of other company’s/person’s service).
Now you’ve found out the basics of monetization methods.
So, just like this, you have a wide choice of blog topics and ideas and know how to monetize them as well!
The best thing is that all of them will help you to make thousands of dollars. And since you are familiar with this blog, you will be able to do it – The way you want it, without leaving your comfort zone!
Wow, wait… you don’t believe that some of the weird topics mentioned in this list can make money, don’t you?
Yeah, I know…
But as I said in the beginning. It’s about knowing the basics. And those basics are all about meeting your target audience’s needs, profitably! You can learn everything about it in my course.
Once again, picking a topic is important. In fact, it is one of the most important things.
