A lot of people think it’s impossible, or hard to make money blogging when it’s actually neither of those things.
Last week I received a pretty decent deposit from an affiliate through a blog post that I haven’t edited in months.
I was actually shocked!
When it came through I was sitting next to my brother which I shared the news with. He was shocked too, because he didn’t think blogging was something people actually made money from. If you’re still thinking about starting a blog in 2019, here’s a good place to start.
He honestly thought that I just sit and play around on the computer all day. His exact words were “how do you make money blogging?”
To be honest, it was so hard to sum it up into just one answer. Then I figured that he may not be the only one wondering “how do all of these people make money blogging?”
So today, I’m going to give you not one, but TEN ways you can make money blogging! If you already have an idea, you can check out actionable steps here.
Affiliate links are looked over all the time by digital entrepreneurs looking to monetize their business.
I’ve made tons of money over the years with affiliate links without really trying. I just kind of said “hey, here’s this really cool thing that has worked for me and maybe it’ll work for you too.”
Depending on which company you’re working with, you can profit thousands of dollars, I’ve seen it happen!
eBooks are a great way to make money with your digital business. We are in the era of information, where there’s a lot of it floating around and it’s really easy to get. Why not become apart of that to leverage your income?
I’ve created a couple of eBooks one of which gained the audience of hundreds of readers. You can check them out here.

Becoming a virtual assistant is one of the best ways to make money digitally. Especially if you’re someone who runs a blog being that you can market your services to your already engaged audience.
Many bloggers have become virtual assistants as a way to work in their field, gain flexibility, and still support themselves financially while building their business.
Even if you can’t find work as a virtual assistant, there’s a ton of WAH jobs out there just waiting for you to snatch them up. Check out 20 of them here.
This is another major source that many people overlook when trying to monetize their blog.
For many bloggers, ads have become a main source of income. I will be realistic with you to give you some kind of idea on how much you can make and what you need to do to make a certain amount. In order to make anywhere from $800-$1600/month you would need to bring in around at least 100k page views per month.
I know that can seem like a lot however, if you check out this article on how to gain thousands of viewers through Pinterest in a couple of days, you’ll be there in no time!
One of the main things I absolutely love about Instagram and Youtube, is that there’s promo everywhere!
It’s a win-win for both parties, the company gains exposure, popularity, and sales from referrals while the blogger earns actual cash from the company.
It’s an exchange process.
Normally how it works is either a company will reach out to you or you’ll reach out to a company to market/review their product to your audience in exchange for profit.
Passive income, means literally to make money in your sleep. This is the ultimate goal for most people.
If you’re someone whose wanting to some day wake up to random deposits in your account that you can actually live off of, working towards passive income is what you want to do.
This can be done in many different ways. A great example would be creating a course or or workshop similar to these.
You want your content to be something that your viewers can access and gain from year-round. A great example would be this article. I published it almost a year ago, however I’m still profiting from it today.
The amazing part about passive income is that you get to choose what you want to create and then profit from your own creation.
I’ve seen many bloggers attach an online store to their blog. It’s almost as if it’s expected for bloggers to have some kind of store or “shop” tab within their blog.
What you choose to sell within that store is totally up to you.
I’ve known others to make thousands of dollars off drop shipping alone, and then sell a course on how others can do the same.
Recently, there’s been a plethora of bloggers and just overall digital content creators turning to freelancing as a source of full time income.
I myself have freelanced in the past and I still do some freelance work occasionally.
It is not wrong to use your audience to market your services. With them being already primed with your personality type and way of life, they are more susceptible to trust you with their money in exchange for your services.
Paid memberships, are something that many bloggers don’t think about doing.
For an example, when you’re paying $9/month for Netflix to continue steaming amazing tv shows every week it doesn’t seem like much right? It’s way cheaper than cable and you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck.
On the flip side, imagine 1,000,000 people using Netflix all paying the same $9/month fee, well that’s $9,000,000/month for one company!
You can take that same concept and apply it to your blog! Actually, I hope that you do!
Depending on what kind of blog you’re running and what kind of community you’ve built, it may be perfectly okay to ask for donations.
If you’re someone like me who doesn’t like to be too pushy, just leave a “donate” link at the end of each article or create a specific page where your audience can go to donate.
