    People earn money from their blogs in many different ways.

    In order to best understand some of those ways is to think of a blog as a platform or a home base. It’s a place to draw people in to read and engage with your content.

    Making money depends on what you do with that blog audience.

    Here are some of the most popular ways people make money from their blogs.

    Ads - Once someone has traffic visiting their blog they can start to display ads. Generally, the blogger is paid when a reader clicks those ads. The payout for a single ad click is extremely low. In order to make decent money displaying ads is to have a blog that gets a lot of traffic each month. The biggest negatives to running ads is they can be distracting to your audience and they’re also tempting people to click and leave your site. The goal should be to keep people on your blog and engaged with you and your content.

    Sponsored Posts - Bloggers who have a following can actually get paid by brands and companies to write posts about their products. The most common sponsored post type would be some type of review, although there can be other types. The blogger is paid a certain amount in exchange for a product or service to be mentioned.

    Affiliate Marketing - Affiliate marketing is a great way for a blogger to earn income. The basic premise is that the blogger will display a unique link on their site. When a reader clicks that unique link and buys the product or service they get a commission. Commission percentages differ depending on the product or service being sold. Physical products usually have a lower commission and digital products (online course etc) usually come with higher commissions.

    Own Products or Services - Many bloggers use their sites to sell their own products or services. The products can be digital or physical. Selling digital products is extremely popular right now. Things like online courses and software are great things to promote via your blog. You can also sell digital services. Things like VA services, design work and coding are popular.

    Above are 4 of the most popular ways to make money from a blog. There are many other ways. You just have to think of your blog as a platform. It doesn’t actually make you the money, it just allows you a home base to build your audience. It’s what you do with that audience that will make you the money.

    Hi LeeLeakey, I think that the most money earned blogging comes from Adsense account. It depends on the way you choose to advertise your blog, others have similar platform as Adsense, but the money earned from a blog or site comes from the trafic generated on that blog. Affiliate marketing is another way in which you can earn with your blog, nd this depends on the percentages is offered!
