How To Make Money Blogging Super Easy Secret No One Told You

How To Make money

If you are frustrated with all the methods you’ve tried to learn how to make money blogging  and feel like they are fizzling then this article is for you. One of the biggest questions that you or your audience may have is how exactly do you make money blogging?.  One thing that I’ve noticed is that people who are trying to make money blogging end up exhausted and frustrated. Usually because they’ve “tried everything” and nothing seems to work.

For example,clickable ads only pull in about two dollars a month,  gurus who want to be paid $3500 a month,  trying to get traffic yet nothing seems to work. Lastly frustrated that people keep telling you that you can make money blogging but you can’t seem to figure it out.

Hopefully I can shed some light on the subject of how to make money blogging and perhaps take away the frustration factor forever.

One thing you’ll hear repeated again and again is : “Build the traffic. Traffic means eyes on your ads  & blog which means more money.”

This is true. Yet it takes time to build traffic for a blog. Sometimes if you get a good media push as I’ve done you can get a huge spike and that’s cool. However that doesn’t always happen. So can the person with a lesser amount of traffic still make money blogging? Absolutely.

If you want to learn how to make money blogging then think of your blog as a portal. Or an octopus (weird analogy I know) with multiple tentacles that reach out in various directions pulling sources of income in from all  directions.

This is the vision of your blog. And this portal or your blog uses a bunch of tentacles much like an octopus to reach out via different places making you money.

 

How To Make money

 

First:

Write the blog.

Keep it up via a few posts a week or once a week but keep writing.

Use the Google Key Word Tool to add keywords to your titles.

Become an authority. Basically if you are helping others, sharing useful information you will become an authority.

Share those posts everywhere across all social media platforms.

Opportunities will come.

You’ll be asked to guest blog, advertisers will begin to write you and request ad space, people with telesummits will request you join them and more.

The secret that no one told you is that many times people don’t make money blogging with just one method.

TWEET That!

They use multiple methods to create various income streams. If you have low traffic, write an Ebook and then sell that. If you’re traffic is better utilize that to create other opportunities for telesummits to get in front of a new audience who you can help.

If you keep writing and you keep reaching out and connecting you will make money with your blog. But if you are hoping for the ship with the thousands to come rolling in so that your ads start making money, well that may leave you frustrated.

Build a blog that’s helpful, with a community, and don’t get frustrated. Surround yourself with positive people who will lift you up and tell you that anything is possible.

This is what I’ve done and these methods make me money.

  1. Hi Lisa,

    Become an authority. Yes, this is an excellent way to make money with your blog. The only downsize is that it takes a while to become an authority. However, when you succeed it will make you money for years.

    Opportunities will come. Absolutely. I can hardly wait.

    Keep writing – OK. I agree.

    Keep reaching. I think this is the most important point. When you are a beginner, the most important thing is to try to reach as many “places” as you can. Increasing exposure is what you need to do every day. This means to find more and more sites to comment, more and more sites or blogs to guest post, more social media accounts to place your posts etc. It is a game of quality but a game of numbers, too.

    Beautiful blog. I like the layout, the colors and the picture of the owner. Is it you? In this case the only thing I can say is : Hello, beautiful blogger.

    Have a nice day

  2. Hi Lisa.

    Oh I always get that question of how to make money on your blog. Well, it does take persistence and good content. I do believe that our blog is our social proof of the work we do.

    I have a “free” offer optin on my blog and that ‘s where I get my list. The good one that people are interested in me and my brand. It does take time, but the more you engage on your readers and especially on your list, you can offer them your products or services.

    Great job!

  3. You definitely need positive people around you and I am not just talking about online but offline too. And I would even go so far as to say watch who you discuss your online business with because many will tear you down with their negative opinions clouding your own spirit causing you to not see the sunlight of success.


  4. You told it straight & true, and I hope folks will listen to you on it. At the same time, people have to realize that it’s possible that the niche they’ve chosen isn’t going to be one that’s going to drive a lot of people to them, so it might be more about service to the few than sales to the many.

  5. I agree as well Lisa, great tips and ones I share with my readers all the time.

    I’m always getting questions about how do you make money with your blog and it’s not just one little thing that does it. You have to work up to those things but it starts with great content and traffic to your blog. From there you get them on your list and you can start providing value and eventually share products that work.

    For me I also branched out to coaching upon the recommendation of my own readers and as you said, you’ll start getting requests from advertisers and it just keeps going from there.

    Thanks for your honesty and sharing this with us. It’s always great to learn from those who are getting the results.

  6. Lisa,

    Great ideas on how to work towards making money with your blog.

    It really is about getting out there and making a name for your self. The more connections you make the more possibility of making money with your blog.

    I think it is really misleading when all of these people tell new bloggers that they can do everything on autopilot. It takes a lot of hard work and being consistent.

  7. I remember reading when I first started blogging that the food niche is “very competitive” and next to impossible to make money in. But after 2+ years blogging in that niche, I know that the only truth is that it’s “competitive”.

    But really… everything is competitive. We had our first advertiser contact us within the first 2 years… so I am here to tell people it is absolutely COMPLETELY possible!

  8. I dig the tips Lisa because I use them too to make money with my blogs.

    Simply create and connect, and create and connect, and create and connect. You cannot flip out after a $5 ad revenue month – most of us have been there – as you need to persist, to create, and branch out.

    Do these things and open up income streams. You can generate ad revenue, get paid to write guest posts or even score freelance writing opportunities, all because you persisted when most other people quit.

    Thanks for sharing!
