Blogging is taking the world by storm and thousands of blogs are started every day, so naturally, people want to make money from them and I assume that's why you'e here.
So how DO you make money blogging? Here are three methods that bloggers are using every day to rake in the big bucks.
This is by far the most popular way to monetize a blog. People buy advertising on blogs to gain more exposure for themselves, and that's where you and your blog come in. You can sell text links, banner ads, 125 by 125 pixel ads in your sidebar … the possibilities are endless.
In the beginning you might not be able to charge advertisers all that much, but a couple bucks a month will do until you are more popular throughout the blogosphere.
This is another winner, and people make thousands with this every day. Basically, these big companies will pay you to sell their stuff for them. Say, you have a blog about dogs, which seems to be a popular subject these days, and you know about this great healthy dog food that's really good for dogs.
You look up the company that sells this food and you find out that they have an affiliate program. So you sign up and get a personal link to refer people through.
Every time someone purchases this dog food online through YOUR link, you get a cut of the profits made. For people selling digital products such as videos or online services the commission can go up to 75% or more!
