8 ways you can make money from blogging

The different ways to make money from blogging are as follows;

1) Display ads ( Google, ezoic etc)

Display ads are ads which are served on internet websites and apps. They are usually informed of banners, bop ups, sticky ads etc. These are the kinds of ads that will be displayed on your blog or website and then you earn a commission based on your available traffic. 


Examples of these kinds of ads include Google Adsense,  Ezoic,  Jubna ads,  Yan ads, Propeller ads and so on.  This kind of ads improves brand recognition and identity online.  Once those ads have been mastered by visitors,  they can easily click the ads and then follow the steps to reaching the company. 

2) Banner ads space

If your blog or website has enough authority and traffic,  you can sell ad space.  Ad space is leasing out a space on your website,  where visitors can contact the company. However, it is not easy to get to these points unless you have enough traffic and interaction with your website. 

Moreover,  businesses that display ads on your website need to get the results and make more sales or they would just withdraw their partnership with you. 

3) Sponsored posts or articles

Sponsored posts are posts from other websites that want to form a relationship and boost the authority of their websites.  Sometimes,  businesses also take part in sponsored posts where they explain what they do and how they do it.  This might not be direct marketing,  but it is enlightening customers to trust them and work with them. Hence,  your website serves as an influence to business and other websites writing a sponsored post on your website.

The plan is that you get compensation when a certain post is sponsored on your blog.  This might even be monthly depending on your blog.

An e-commerce website is one that allows the selling of goods and services to potential customers.

5) 3rd party product listings 

This is another group of e-commerce websites but they specifically list or display other people’s products directly on their website. They don’t earn per commission of products sold, instead vendors pay a premium fee from listing their products on their website just like what is obtainable on Ofarms.Co Agriculture Marketplace.

These websites have an audience for most products displayed on them. Products are faster sold where there are enough audience circulating a market.  Here,  they charge a premium fee for displaying certain products on their websites. While some also,  get paid via commission and 3rd party listing. 

6) Product review

Product review websites are websites that review several products in a particular niche and they get paid for it.  This is just like another form of advertisement for products that have high competition in an e-commerce market but they are easily ranked in a product review website before getting sold to buyers on e-commerce site.  

The deal here is very simple. As a blogger,  you educate your blog visitors about a particular product from a seller who wants the products to get known easily by people.
