Good morning guys, it’s Greg from dear bloggers and welcome to our video on 10 ways to earn money blogging updated for 2019 So you just learned how to start a blog or maybe you have a blog from before and it’s looking pretty good Well now is a good time to monetize that blog because the student you set up ways to make money blogging the sooner You’ll actually earn money maybe three or six months down the road. Well in this video, I’m going to show you 10 real ways I’ve actually used to profit and make money blogging with examples on this blog here and on other blogs around the web that I know are absolutely killing it and the best thing is every step we look at here is 100 percent free to set up and enjoy just like this donut shop Keurig I just proved myself in our building lobby or a treat for your pet Alright, so without further ado, let’s jump in. So we’re gonna log in and look at our first way to make money blogging and That would be Google Adsense so Adsense is something we almost all hear about when we want to start a blog you can set it for free at google.com slash Adsense slash start and as long as you’ve made a WordPress blog with your own domain name and hosting and a few blog posts to show you actually care about providing content You should get accepted learning Adsense is sort of like learning skiing It’s easy to get started and get down the hill but it gets more complicated to really become a pro at Adsense It’s hard to know what all these data metrics mean and this balance you see over here is actually a combination of money I made On websites and YouTube videos, but like I said to get started is a breeze you just click on ads Then ad units Then under create a new ad unit display ads look at that Google set up a relevant advertisement for us already about coffee so just give your ad a name like Blagh tutorial and click create Next they’ll give you some code, but don’t let that stop you. You just need to copy and paste this somewhere on your WordPress blog Ideally in the sidebar, so we’re gonna copy everything from the script to the script right, click copy now we go back to WordPress and we can hover on appearance and click widgets and We’re gonna scroll down to the text widget Add it to our main sidebar at widget now Click on the text tab and we’re gonna paste in that code and Save it now when we look at our blog any page that uses the sidebar Like a typical blog post Will showcase your ad it just takes a little while to show up maybe a few minutes because it’s a new ad and it doesn’t Help that we have an ad blocker running when people click on your ad you’ll earn anywhere from a few cents to a dollar To maybe even up to $20.00 depending on how valuable the ad is to the brand that decided to purchase the ads from Google The next way to generate money blogging which I find even more profitable than Adsense is affiliate marketing You can affiliate market any product you use for example, this blog uses the Astra theme and in Google I know that Astra has an affiliate program because I looked up Astra affiliate program I Actually just joined this affiliate program So hopefully when they let me in I’ll get a custom link just like you would which you can put on your site for example Maybe in the footer saying something like my site was filled with Astra like this design You can use a store too and that way when they click that link They’ll go to Astra get the theme and you’ll get a commission You can also affiliate market for theme forest, which is probably the largest theme vendor in the world So you basically have all these products which you didn’t have to create but you can recommend to your audience in something like a review post and then they’ll pay you if you actually successfully recommend customers if you want to see examples of someone doing an affiliate marketing really well check out Smashing Magazine and just look up best WordPress the For years not Smashing Magazine has been reviewing WordPress themes in different categories They do super well with Google search rankings and every time you click on one of them They might stand to earn a commission Now one Commission is not a lot but consider millions of people visiting this website every year Checking out blog posts like this and you get the picture so the third way I like to make money on a blog is affiliate marketing for your web hosting provider as many of you know I recommend Hostgator web hosting I’ve used them for almost 10 years now and they’ve been absolutely Priceless and essential to my success online now every web host has an affiliate program I just like Hostgator is the best because they have really nice people who coach you on how to be Successful and make money and they pay you up to $125 per sale. So you just click on affiliates and Then you can see all the information right here The next step would be to hit sign up for free make an account and get started Let’s click customize on our blog and let’s see how to put that link in the footer So again, we’re using the Astra theme so it has a really easy footer customizer We’re just gonna go down to layout and click footer footer bar And we can change the copyright area. So what I like doing is making a vertical bar and then saying powered by Astra theme vertical bar hosting by Hostgator Vertical bar. So then what you do is write out a link to Hostgator right here so if someone needs hosting they can go ahead and get the same hosting you use cuz they know it’s good then when you publish it Except you can see our changes in the footer so now it’s highlighted in that white link looks really good and when someone clicks on it Everything should be working perfectly and you get the Commission if they sign up through your link Okay. So for a fourth way to make money blogging let’s move away from marketing and talk content A lot of the times people will want to publish articles on your blog and they’ll even be willing to pay you for it That’s one way I made money with my first blog which was the college of I site called Honest college comm and another word for this technique is sponsored posts so what you need to do is basically Create a write for Us page which tells people exactly what they need to do to get published on your blog and where to send A post along with that page you can include a clause saying like we also accept sponsored posts This is our rate if you’d like to publish a post about this in this and include links and images About your brand and all that we’d be happy to do it for you for this rate payable via PayPal. Hopefully pretty soon You’ll start getting emails that ask about your guest post rate I can’t show you the full emails but as you can see I have plenty of Requests that I still need to respond to and a lot of these people are actually willing to pay to publish a guest post Because they’re writing on behalf of a company or a brand with a budget for it the fifth way to earn income blogging is Generating banner ads like these or even like this one at the top here banner ads are just custom images you put into your sidebar Where you add a link to a brand people will pay you to put the ad in your sidebar You can charge them more money for how big the ad is or how high it up it is on the page and with these Ads you can use affiliate tracking links or you can just put a link to the brand The reason I like banner ads so much is because it teaches you how to create an ad on your own you can do so in the new post editor using a simple image you just click add media and start creating and use this as your little canvas so The sixth way to make money blogging is going to be to actually publish ads on your blog on behalf of a hub so instead of reaching out to brands and being like do you want me to advertise you or just putting up their ads which you can do from our past example, you’re going to look up a hub for publishing ads and Getting paid for example, so everyone’s telling us that hub pages is a good idea You can read this review.

Ok, guys So the seventh way to earn money blogging is great If you don’t get accepted to Adsense there are many other networks like Sovereign who will pay you to put ads on your blog and a lot of them have structures which might make you make more money than Google Adsense would now I’ve only made chump change like in the range of a hundred or so dollars with sovereign But if you check out a blog like pinch of YUM, you’ll see that they actually do use sovereign successfully Gonna go down to where they list what they for example in one month here, which was back in 2014.
