How to Make Money Online Blogging [Proven Ways].

#1 Google AdSense 

This is no brainer, everyone is aware of this method.

Google AdSense is a platform created by Google to help advertisers advertise their products on a publisher’s website or blog. 

Just sign up for the Google AdSense account, fill your information carefully.

The AdSense team will review your blog/website and based on your website quality, they will approve or disapprove your request. 

So make sure you have a good quality website to get Google AdSense approval. 

Once you get the approval, just insert ad code on your website either in the sidebar, header, or footer.

#2 Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is taking blogging income to the next level. 

Most of the blogs make 80% of income by using affiliate marketing. 

Most famous affiliate marketing platforms are Amazon affiliate, CJ Affiliate, ShareASale, etc.

First, you have to sign up for the affiliate program.

After successful approval, you get the unique tracking, that is used to identify your unique tracking link.

You can add product affiliate links in your blog post. Whenever your reader clicks on these links and makes a purchase, you get a commission.

#3 Banner Ads 

Nowadays, Banner Ads are becoming more and more popular.

Most of the bigger companies are now shifting towards this type of advertising.

Banner ads are image-based than text-based ads.

Companies register themselves on sites like BuySellAds, and publishers like us also register there to publish the ads of those companies. 

#4 write Product Reviews

Once you start getting a decent amount of traffic on your blog, many companies will start contacting you to write a review about their products.

On the other hand, you can also write emails to different companies for writing a review of their product.

This type of monetization is getting more famous these days.

Many YouTubers and many blogging sites do such product reviews and earn huge amounts of money. 

#5 Add a Product Video on Your site 

Whenever you are writing an article and you have an opportunity to show a product demo, you can pitch that company to pay you to add a video demo of their product.

Many companies will pay happily to add their product demo. 

#6 Provide services 

If you are someone who has a special skill, you can start selling your service to your audience.

For example, if you are a software developer or web developer you can sell your service to your readers.

If you are good at video production, you can offer video production services.

Like these, there are endless opportunities to monetize your blog.

You can add the “Hire Me” page to your website so that people can buy your services. 

#7 Email Marketing 

Email marketing is another form of marketing where you send an email to your collected email list about anything you want.

I have added an email form on my site so that people can subscribe to my blog.

This way I collect emails and send occasional emails to my readers about a new post, any changes to my blog, or any product link which will help my readers to grow their blog.

I occasionally add affiliate links in my emails, so that I get a commission if any of my subscribers use that link to make a purchase. 

#8 Write and Sell a E-book 

Many successful bloggers write an e-book and sell it to their already existing audience.

Selling an e-book is comparatively easy than selling a paperback book.

You need to build trust among your audience to make money by selling an Ebook.

Provide some part of your e-book as a free download, if your readers like it, they are more likely to purchase your ebook.

#9 Build a Course 

As we talked earlier, start selling your services if you are good at something.

Another way to convert that thing is to build an online course around your expertise and around your blog niche.

Start offering this course to your audience. Most of the people show their interest in the video course. 

#10 Paid Workshops/Public Speaking

If you are someone who has built an authority blog and have huge followers, you can start paid workshops. Most followers are interested to register for these kinds of workshops. 


There are so many ways to make passive income online. The above methods work best once you start publishing unique content and start building a loyal audience base.

Use your audience base to get more out of it. Build trust among them and you can see the difference yourself.

But remember, this is not a get rich scheme. It takes a lot of effort and consistency to make money online.
