A new fad diet comes out literally every year, right in time for summer when people start feeling very self-conscious about the way their body looks. These diets prey on people who are in a very vulnerable state and strive to dramatically cut calories or even whole food groups, valuing weight loss over health. What […]

26 Things That Can Make You Money Blogginghttp://comluv.com/26-things-can-make-money-blogging/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=26-things-can-make-money-blogging http://comluv.com/26-things-can-make-money-blogging/#comments Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:58:21 +0000 http://comluv.com/?p=25671 things

Yeah, I know … posts like this can get really corny at times.

I mean, it seems that there’s more advice out there on monetizing a blog than you can shake a stick at (provided you shake sticks at advice).

Yet, when I was doing research for this article, I found that there’s apparently no master-list – something that would cover more than, say, 20 techniques.

So I’ve decided to do even more research, gather as many methods as I can, and put them together all in one place. And here it is! I hope you’ll get some cool ideas going through this list.

(In no particular order.)

1. Membership programs and subscriptions

Aka. premium content.

The idea is simple (but not necessarily easy). A subscription offer is based on people paying extra to get access to a premium area of your blog. The content you’re providing there shouldn’t be available through any other channels (especially free channels).

The technical side is quite easy with plugins such as Membership.

2. Consulting services

Essentially, there are two paths to blog monetization: passive income and active income. Offering consulting services is probably the most active way of making money possible.

The difficult part is building up your expertise and status in the niche before you can reach out to clients.

3. Blog flipping

Probably the most straightforward way to make money from a blog is to sell it (on Flippa, for example).

Even if you’re struggling to monetize your blog in any other way, some people can still be interested in buying it from you.

Not to mention that there are hundreds of entrepreneurs out there who do blog flipping professionally (they buy existing blogs, grow them for a while, sell them, and repeat the process).

4. Private forums

Depending on your niche, and the level of user engagement on your blog, you might be able to launch a private forum where people have to pay for access. Usually works best in passion-driven niches like weight loss, business, or dating.

5. AdSense

AdSense needs no introduction. It’s a widely popular platform used by tens of thousands of sites. And it’s also the easiest way to start making money from your blog (not necessarily the most profitable way, though).

All you need is a free AdSense account. The official tutorials will take you through the whole setup process.

6. Selling ads yourself

Let’s take a step back for a while. AdSense is a platform where you just sign up, get a piece of code, include it on your site, and from that point on, it’s AdSense that takes care of serving the ads, tracking, and hopefully sending you a check at the end of the month.

In comparison, when you’re selling ads yourself, this is all on you. You have to find advertisers, pitch them on the idea of buying ad space from you, and then handle all the other aspects of the transaction.

7. Freelance blogging

Blogging is truly huge nowadays! With such a volume of posts being published every month (42.6 million), no wonder that some site owners simply can’t handle everything on their own.

This is where you can come into the picture. Find your target (the blog you want to write for), reach out with a good proposal and offer your freelance blogging services. There are some great proposal resources for freelance writers and bloggers created by the guys at Bidsketch.

Note. You don’t have to limit yourself to just blogs. Literally every other website that publishes regular content becomes a possible target for you.

Speaking from my own experience, making money this way is often way more attainable than trying to build passive income streams.

8. Freelancing in general

Freelance blogging was based on monetizing your writing/blogging skills. But there’s really nothing keeping you from monetizing any other skills you possess.

For example, maybe you’re an interior designer who has an interior design blog? You can still get some cool freelance gigs directly through your blog if you just position yourself properly.

9. Other ad networks

AdSense is undoubtedly the leader in contextual advertising, but they are not the only player around.

So if you’re not happy with their solution, try working with any of these companies: Chitika.com, BuySellAds.com, Clicksor.com, Adknowledge.com.

10. Affiliate networks – text links

The main idea behind affiliate marketing is that other businesses pay you for promoting their products and generating sales.

To join the game, you have to pick your network (like ClickBank, or CJ Affiliate), select some products, and then promote them through your blog.

One way to do it is through strategically placed text links (within your blog posts).

11. Affiliate reviews

This is a more labor-heavy form of affiliate marketing. What you do is write a review of the product you want to promote, and add your affiliate link at the bottom.

The idea is that when someone is thinking about purchasing a given product, they often look for some reviews of the product first. So if you get in front of them with your review, there’s a very good change they will click your link and then buy the thing.

Of course, don’t do fake affiliate reviews (ones where you actually haven’t even used the product yourself or even seen it).

12. Amazon ads

Amazon is one of the biggest affiliate networks out there. The way you make money with them is very similar to any other network.

Just sign up to the Amazon Associates program, grab some links pointing to specific products from their massive store (as an affiliate, you can promote anything that’s in the store), and then publish them on your blog.

13. Sponsored posts

This covers posts that you are paid to write, as well as posts that other people send to you and pay for the possibility to have them published on your blog.

Usually a good method for sites that have already built a reputation in their niches.

14. Monthly sponsorships

Similar to regular sponsored posts, but this time the advertiser buys a sponsorship package for the whole month. As a result, the advertiser’s promotional banner/link is visible under every post on your blog that entire month.

15. Business partnerships

This is a very broad category. In its core, it’s based on striking a deal with another blogger to participate in a project together.

It can be an e-book project, some other product launch, software project, or even an agreement where you and your partner refer freelance clients to each other.

16. Making money blogging by teaching people how to make money blogging

Honestly, I’m only putting this on the list out of pure frustration that this is apparently still a viable business model for some bloggers out there.

I’m not a fan, but since it’s an actual thing, on the list it goes!

17. Info and education products

Based on selling information and teaching people how to master a particular skill.

Note. The info you’re selling shouldn’t be available elsewhere for free.

18. E-books

Somewhat similar to info products, but e-books have a specific form, presentation, and generally, people have set expectations about what a quality e-book should look like.

So whatever you do, don’t just compile a basic Word doc, save it as PDF and call it an e-book. Try preparing something a bit more special.

19. Software and apps

Developing a new piece of software or an app can cost a lot of money, but it is a popular business model regardless.

Likely the best way to capitalize on this concept is to create an app that solves a specific pain that your average visitor faces, rather than just creating a mobile app for your blog (one where people get easier access to your content).

20. Webinars to product sales

Webinars are the new hot topic these days. For example, one of the more popular podcasters in the business category, John Dumas makes more than $100k a month through webinars.

The idea is to get people to a webinar, provide value on a given topic, and then offer the listeners the next step up in a form of a paid product.

21. Selling exclusive webinars and seminars

The method above was about inviting people to a free webinar and then selling hem on your product later on. This is about making the webinar the actual product.

It’s a technique that Social Media Examiner has been using successfully since its beginnings.

22. Guest posting to product sales

This method was explained in detail on this blog a while ago by Milica Pantic.

The basic idea is this: you land some carefully crafted guest posts on reputable blogs, and then link them to your site, where you have something special waiting for the people coming in – a product that’s related to the post.

23. Guest blogging to freelance gigs

Similar to the above, but this time we’re aiming to get freelance clients, instead of product sales.

24. T-shirts and other merchandise

People still love t-shirts, and this isn’t likely to change anytime soon.

Besides, these days selling t-shirts is very simple (from a technical point of view). Sign up to Teespring and see for yourself.

25. Speaking opportunities

Although this usually isn’t a possibility for newbie bloggers, it is a possibility nonetheless. You will need a reputation in the niche before you will be able to go after speaking gigs and conference appearances, but once you get in, it tends to pay well. At least according to the people who do it professionally.

26. Donations / tip jars

Because … hey, why not?

Tip jars are a fairly common thing on the web. Putting one up on the sidebar of your site costs you nothing, so it’s basically free money, even if all you get is $1 a month.

Bloggers: Avoid Legal Trouble With These 5 Tipshttp://comluv.com/bloggers-avoid-legal-trouble-5-tips/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=bloggers-avoid-legal-trouble-5-tips http://comluv.com/bloggers-avoid-legal-trouble-5-tips/#comments Tue, 08 Jul 2014 21:03:39 +0000 http://comluv.com/?p=25664 Blogger legal issues

Blogging might seem like an innocent activity, but it is riddled with potential legal issues. OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. Most bloggers won’t break the law, and those who do probably won’t get caught. It’s a fool’s errand to police the entire internet. That doesn’t mean that bloggers are immune from the law, though.

why not head over and leave them a comment to let them know the good news!

[Transcript]

Hey and welcome to another newsletter.

Well I am moving this time because last time I was spinning around in circles and people didn’t like that and to be honest when I looked back on the video it made me a bit dizzy as well.

And it’s okay. Now I am moving and I am right over there. It’s not as nice weather today, but it doesn’t matter because I spent most of the time in front of the computer this week because I will be putting into practice all of those things that I have been learning on the course that I have been doing, you know I told you about that last week.

And, I programmed the thing, coded it, it was only a little bit of code for the new system for registering and when people register it will put their password as their user name and then when they log in they will get promoted to changed their password to a more secure and less easy to remember and stuff like that. That has been coded and I have tested that and it’s working so I will put it in over this week and this weekend to make sure that it works properly and then when the news comes in that’s sorted. Brilliant.

But talking about new users. Since I had the sale when the sale ended I haven’t had any sales for like 14 days!.

That’s the longest it’s ever gone, ever in the entire history of the business of Commentluv. Now I put that down to something that I’ve changed during that time and one of those is the sales video and the other one is that’s it’s on a new system.

There might have been a little friction with people getting a little confused or whatever and like that. I’ve switched it back to the original video and I committed myself to making another video that is similar to that one more modern, more up to date with the things you can do with the anti-spam measures and things like that.

So that’s nice, I’ve got loads more work to do for that kind of situation and well you’re probably used to on this types of newsletters  and things that people talk about their products. You are used to people saying “oh it sells like hot cakes”, It’s always selling, it’s always selling. So maybe they are not being completely transparent with things when sales aren’t happening.

The whole point of these newsletters is that you could learn from my mistakes. Especially lately I’ve made lots of mistakes! , loads, and you won’t have to spend lots of money learning stuff the hard way and you can do it the easy way for me doing it. You know I hope that’s okay and  it’ll have to be because that’s how it’s going to be.

All right, now I’ve told you about the coded thing about the user names and password and that’s all sorted. I’ve told you about the sales and things like that. The sales video having to go back to the old one because apparently the new one that I made that I thought was really awesome; isn’t. You know but when in sales always be testing. If you are just going to switch it on and leave it and then you are going to ask for trouble anyways. So it’s all well and good. It’s all fair and good. Fair and safe here in business and plug-ins.

And also if you remember last week or the week before I asked what was your favorite plug-in or premium or your go to premium plug-in. Something that you always install and when you create a new site and stuff like that. I am still interested to hear about that, and you can let me know with the link in this post and/ or you could just reply to an email, this email, this newsletter email. And let me know which is your favorite premium plug-in. What one is the best and if you’ve got time you can also tell me why that’s the one that you chose. And that will really help me with some of my research that I am doing that’s applying to the stuff that I’ve learned in the course that I did from the money I got from the sales.

It wasn’t a complete failure. I did make some decent sales, but you know I couldn’t really hope for more because I didn’t do any kind of lead up to it. You can’t just send an email to your own internal list and expect miracles to happen and I really didn’t expect miracles to happen. It would have been nice if it had but whatever I don’t mind this is the way business goes. Sometimes it’s good sometimes it’s bad. And, if it’s bad then you do stuff  to it and you tweak things and keep changing stuff until everything is good and then you become bankrupt, but there is no chance of that because I don’t have loads of property and staff and another extraneous expenses for this plug-in. It’s just the plugin and the hosting , and the hosting and the graphics or advertisements and the affiliates and the other stuff for that. So not really that much to worry about.

Okay, so that is me and that is good bye, and I was trying to say it at the same time. Okay so let me know by replying to this newsletter what your favorite premium plug in is and / or you can do the survey form and you can fill it in there, but if you put in this email address then for sure you will get entered into the contest to win $50, which I think is fair enough. I’ll pay you to tell me what you want to use.
