Sell Other People’s Products to Make Money on Your Blog

Sign up for marketing networks such as ShareaSale, FlexOffers and Amazon Affiliates. Then, join the individual companies that you love and start sharing them with your readers.

For example, the image above is an affiliate link for Amazon. If you click the link and purchase that beautiful gift basket (for say, a gift for your mother this coming mother’s day), I’ll receive a small commission from the company, but your price will stay the same.


Make Money On Your Blog: Sell Ad Space


Make money on your blog by placing simple ads within your content or in your sidebar. The best company to sign up for when you are just getting started is Google Adsense.

It doesn’t cost a thing to sign up, the ads are easy to set up and you can start earning money as soon as your ads are in place.

Once your new blog has reached 25,000 monthly sessions, sign up for Mediavine.

It’s free to sign up, once you’ve reached the minimum monthly sessions and then, they do all the ad management for you! That way, you can concentrate on writing and building your blog, instead of worrying about ad placement.


Teach Something

Sign up to become an instructor for Udemy and start offering classes about things that your blog readers want to learn. Share information about your classes, along with a few extra tips for free, on your blog to get readers to sign up.

Write Sponsored Posts

Sign up for IZEA and start bidding. You’ll be given a list of relevant topics for your blog. Each time a sponsor accepts your bid, you write the article and then get paid.


Make Money On Your Blog: Offer Services

Offer a Service to Make Money on Your Blog

Consider offering a service that you can provide for your customers. Are you good at writing, drawing or organizing?

Sell your services as a freelance writer, an illustrator, a professional organizing coach, a cake baker or a candlestick maker.

Set an hourly wage or per product price and create a landing page on your blog where you can direct potential clients and customers to purchase your services. Then, write blog posts about your services and why they are such a good offer.

I hope these ideas have inspired you to get out there and creating new ways to make money on your blog!
