How to make money blogging

    So I run a successful blog on Tumblr, We are number one on Google and we have a large following. The blog also has a successful Instagram which has over 10k followers now. Our Twitter is not up their with the numbers yet, But it has a dedicated following.

    Now for a few months I have used affiliate marketing, At the moment I have more bad months then good. Saying that I have earned a fair amount of commission from it so it`s not all that bad. But at the moment things are slow and i`m wondering what I can do to pick it up? I am getting as many links out their as possible, But I don`t want to do it and turn people off.
    SEMrush
    Also, I am looking to go into sponsorship content etc but I am baffled as how to approach it. I have contacted brands but they either ignore me, don`t contact me back or they don`t do it right now. I`ve noticed people advertise on their IG stories for brands to contact them. But I need some guidance on this because I am new to sponsorship content.

    I am looking at becoming a full time blogger, What advice would you give me?

    Are the affiliate products you're marketing related to the subject of the site?

    You will of course need to get your links out there if you want your blog site to be monetized. One method I use for that is to write two articles/posts with valuable content only and then one article/post with valuable content and include a link for a product that relates to the content.

    Another technique you might try is to write reviews on products in the niche where your readers interest's lie. Make sure your reviews are honest and make them as unbiased as you can. You'll need to be knowledgeable about the product so it helps to use that product to learn how it works (and how well it works) before you write your review. Include your link for that product somewhere in the article. I prefer to place my links at the end but you can experiment with that.

    Yes the links are associated with my blog, I have been using them for about a year now and must have well over 100 out their.

    My blog is different to others, Where as most people`s posts are scheduled mine isnt. My blog is based on a music artists fashion and whenever that MA posts, I post. This can be spread across sporadically so can be as little or can be as many posts a day. However, My links are limited. I cannot put a affiliate link into every post of mine because about 80% of what they wear are designer and what person is going to buy a £900 coat, I also don`t see any designer affiliates out there. So yes my links are mainly shops you see on the HS or online. I think my posts is about a 100 (Maybe less) per week and less than half of that is affiliated links I can link too.

    If I understand you correctly you're either marketing the wrong products or you're targeting the wrong prospects.

    Since you're posting about the fashions that your MA wears then you need to find out where the people hang out who can afford those fashions and who are interested in buying those fashions. Or you need to start posting about a different MA. One who wears fashions that are affordable and interesting to the crowd that does follow your blog.

    What I perceive right now is that your followers only come to your blog for the updates on your MA and have no interest in looking at what you have to offer.

    If you dont build and email list you loose a lot of traffic .build a capture page on your website ,build trust with your audience and market to them products ,but the hard part its you make them to trust you by delivering value

    Maybe you can sell your own product or service.
