Then there are those who see their blog as a way to make a regular income. Some simple, but not easy, tips on how to make money blogging include:
1. Become an Expert in a Niche
A market can be defined as any group of people that share a common interest. Such interests could be anything, including soccer, beading, article writing and internet marketing.
The first major step towards making some money from your blog would be to make a list of all the things that captivate your interest, more so those that you would like to become an internet expert on.
Such things can even include areas of interest related to your professional training, which you are well versed in, and can comfortably offer consultancy services on. It is from this list that you will then select the major areas to focus on and base you content on.
In order to attract the readers’ interest and generate enough traffic, you will have to create interesting, relevant and epic content that is well-written and devoid of grammatical and punctuation mistakes.
With good content in place, you can adopt other well-known strategies to create buzz and make some money from the blog, or make money through the services and consultation fees you generate through it.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is the process of selling other people’s products for a commission. You can start by looking for affiliate programs that meet your needs and complement your business. Then you can link to these from your blog and get a commission on each product sale via the link provided on your blog.
Begin by joining the Amazon affiliate program and incorporate Amazon links to your blog, and then you can set up an Astore which will be your exclusive storefront with the Amazon products that are relevant to your industry and local business.

4. Sponsored Promotions and Competitions
There will always be businesses that complement your venture and, at times, they might be willing to donate some items that can be utilized as giveaways in competitions and promotions on your site.
This will help drive a lot of traffic your way, and you can choose to charge those interested in participating in such events. You can also sell advertising space on your blog.
These are a number of ways that you can start earning an income from your blog. But you need to remember that it’s not an overnight achievement. It takes time, effort and a lot of traffic to start earning a significant amount of money.
