    Like PoPSiCle said, you will need to build an engaged audience before thinking of monetizing your Blog. Trust is a key factor when selling anything online. If you don't have it, people won't buy from you.

    Now, one thing that I've seen many successful bloggers doing recently is to sell a subscription to a premium membership. What does that mean?

    - You can get exclusive content from them. Like exclusive interviews with relevant people from their niche, videos, etc.
    - You can get exclusive time with them. Like having a Google hang-out or a webinar only to members where you can interact with the blogger.
    - You can take part in a community where you can interact with other premium readers of the Blog. They usually go for platforms like slack to create these communities and they facilitate the conversation among users.
    - You can get exclusive discounts on certain products. Like coupons for their Udemy Courses, or any other deals that they manage to negotiate to their readers.

    This is a great option because it provides your a regular source of income. But of course you need to first build trust with your audience, then sell the membership to them, and finally be able to retain your premium users by constantly giving them value for their money.

    Hey Michael - making money from a popular blog or popular anything online is extremely easy. The hard part is creating that popularity in the first place.

    You have to find the right subject (popular but not too competitive), learn about so you are expert and can give real value, learn about running a successful blog and then the money making will follow ... and you will learn about money making methods when you learn about running a successful blog.

    I wish you success.

    There are many ways you can make money blogging. But first you need to make your blog so successful and popular that people like to visit it and share it. Success and the money from a blog depend on the size of your reader base. Once you have a huge traffic on your blog, you can monetize it by:

    · Running ads

    · Publishing paid guest posts

    · Selling e-books

    · Writing for brands


    Working with the top brands is an ideal choice. All you need is to link with the brands looking for influencers and bloggers. For this, I would suggest you register your blog on Blogmint and participate in blogging campaigns run by different companies. You can easily apply for different campaigns in your domain by making bids and get money by writing for them.

    Ads- they aren't effective but can provide some little extra something.
    Sponsored Posts- great if you have a large audience so that brands will want to work with you. You could even make deals about a certain number of posts, promoting their products and a certain number of tweets and Instagram posts.
    Affiliate Programs- Great for blogs with medium-high traffic. It's harder for smaller blogs because you need a lot of people clicking your links for this to make a substantial amount of money.

    1. Affiliate Programs - Amazon Associates and Clickbank.
    2. Google AdSense.
    3. Sell your own products - e-book, video course.
    4. Sell your own services - voice over acting, ghostwriting.
    5. Sell advertising spots on your blog.

    Agreed! I actually agree with your entire post but, as a professional author and book publisher, I wanted to highlight this portion of it.

    FACT: Publishing an ebook can definitely earn you some extra income, and offering part of it for free is a great way to get people to opt-in to an email marketing campaign so you can sell them on buying the entire book along with other products.
    FICTION: You can expect to be viewed as an industry expert within your field after quickly writing a short, sloppy ebook and publishing it without any professional design or editing whatsoever.

    You get out of something what you put into it whether it's a blog or a book. It takes time and effort to build up your readership and produce a saleable ebook that will earn you money.

    I'm new to this forum, so I'm a little late in replying ... by better late than never.

    One way you can build up your blog's readership a little faster is by inviting guest bloggers to write posts for you that allow them to promote and link back to their own blogs, products, services. People love the opportunity to guest blog. They'll promote their own post within your blog to their readers, and this is an easy way for you to attract additional subscribers through them.

    There are lots of way to make money online. Figure it out, what you are best at? People usually do Affiliate marketing which is the biggest earner. But for that you have to know how to make website, how to market them, how to promote and spend money on advertising, and specially find a profitable niche.
