When you are learning how to make money online without investment, one of the important parts is monetizing your blog. If you are going to make money with your blog, you need to figure out how you are going to do that. There are plenty of options available, but you need to figure out what is going to work best for you and how you are going to operate.
(Top 6) Best Ways to Monetize Your Blog for Free
1. Google Adsense –
Google Adsense is a platform that runs ads from people who have purchased display ads through Google AdWords. Some people choose to pay-per-click, and others choose to pay per impression. That is the difference between PPC and CPM.
If you choose to make money with ad revenue from Google Adsense, you input a code on your site, and when people view or click on the ad, you get part of the revenue. The other part goes to Google. While you won’t get as much money as if you had got found the advertiser yourself and put the ads on the site, you also did not have to go through all of the trouble of finding the advertiser, working out an agreement, and other details that might come along with it.
2. Offer Coaching Services –
If you get coaching clients through your blog, you can make a good amount of money that way. Showing people your expertise with your blog to then offer them the ability to come and be coached by you is an easier way to do business than cold calling or networking to find clients.
Setting up your blog in a way that gains trust and allows people to get to know you will allow them to feel confident when they decide to pull out their credit cards and work with you. You can choose to have the ability to process payment right on the site, or you can require them to go through an interview process before accepting their payment. Since it is your site, it is fully customizable so that you can do business in the way that best fits your needs.
3. Sell Online Courses –
There are thousands of people coming online each day looking for information on all kinds of topics. If you have special knowledge or if you are willing to do the research to get the knowledge necessary, you can create courses and sell them on your blog.
Many bloggers create multiple courses that complement each other in order to give customers a complete suite of products that will help them through each stage of the process. You can do that as well. If you are using WordPress, there are plugins like WooCommerce that will help you easily sell your courses without having to learn difficult code. You can also have an unlimited amount of products and be able to sell as much as you like 24/7.
4. Write & Sell eBooks –
Even if you aren’t a writer, you can write an ebook. How is this possible? Besides the option of pushing through and dealing with the pain, you can also hire a ghostwriter. If you get the idea for the topic, you can either give the writer an outline and guide on how the book should be written, or you can find an expert in the topic and have them ghostwrite it and give them a free license to write the book how they see fit.
Am I saying that you can have written (or have it written) an ebook and sell it even if you have no clue about the topic?
As long as you have authority on the topic ghostwrite the book, you can pay for their work and have full rights to sell the ebook online.
5. Affiliate Marketing –
Affiliate marketing is one of the genius ways that you can make money online without having to touch any physical products. When you are an affiliate marketer, that means that you are marketing products for other people. Basically, you are sending traffic to the website to convert them to sales, and you get a percentage of the product sale depending on the agreed-upon cut.
There are some affiliate programs like Amazon that do not pay a high percentage, but there are some information products that pay as much as 90% for sales of their digital products. Since there are few expenses and they aren’t doing any work, they give most of the profits to the affiliate marketer.
6. Sponsored Posts –
Sponsored posts are another great way to price money through your blog. These posts are written by an outside author that would like to have a link on your site going back to their website. This is why they pay you to post their post on your site. They want the SEO value they get from having a link from a relevant area.
Depending on your site’s domain authority (DA) and how much traffic you get, you may be able to get $20 or $20,000. It all depends on the value that the customer is getting from purchasing the sponsored post.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when you are learning more about how your blog can benefit you and make money for you. Whichever way you pick to make money can grow and be scaled as you have the time and energy to put into growth strategies.
