How Can You Make Money From Blogging – The Easy Way

You might be surprised how it’s done. It really is pretty easy once you learn the right techniques, which I will share below. Some years ago I wondered how the bloggers were doing it. I mean they couldn’t just be writing a blog for fun…right? Well, I found out they were making a lot of money actually. That’s when I decided to get into blogging too. So here’s the answer to…

How Can You Make Money From Blogging?

how can you make money from bloggingI’ll be helping you by giving a quick little summary on how it’s done. Then show you the free resource that made it all possible for me. It really is not as hard as one may think or else I for one probably wouldn’t be here writing this today.

You probably found this article through a search engine and I learned the skills to be on the 1st page of Google with the resource I’ll be showing you here.


You are way ahead of the game before even starting if you like to write and share your passions. I mean what is better than getting paid for doing what you love? Plus you get to help your readers out in the process. It really is a win, win.


Let’s Get Started

The way to look at this endeavor is more like a side business rather than making some quick cash here and there.


The way that most bloggers and internet marketers are making money online is by promoting products and services. This is done by joining an affiliate program and becoming an affiliate of a retailer that sells products/services. Affiliate programs are offered by bigger established companies such as


You Don’t Sell…You Only Recommend.

What’s awesome is you don’t even need to have your own product or offer any service. There is an affiliate program for everything and anything you’re interested in. Just type “(your interest) + affiliate program” in Google and you will be amazed how many you’ll find.

So What Do We Do?

Okay. As an example let’s say you’re interest or hobby (something you know enough about to write a few articles on) is baseball. While you are writing about something baseball related, you would give a recommendation on a product you’ve tried perhaps a baseball glove or cleats.


The sporting goods affiliate program will have given you a link to put within this article to show people where they can by the glove or shoes you mentioned. Once your reader clicks on the link and they end up buying what you recommend you will get paid a commission.


Depending on the affiliate program and the niche, you may earn anywhere between 3-5% all the way up to 50-75% in some cases.


So basically within your articles (or blog posts), you will recommend certain products to people and when they purchase you get a commission. Like I said some commissions can be in the hundreds of dollars per sale.


But I’ll get into that in a bit. Obviously, there is a step-by-step process you’ll want to follow, which I will be providing free resources for you to check out below.


Helping People Builds Trust

Well, it all starts with helping people find what they are looking for online. This is usually information or a product. You need to put yourself in the mindset of helping people first. Ask yourself, “What will they type in Google to find what they are looking for”. The phrases that people type in Google or Yahoo are called keywords. And you will be using a keyword finding tool (my favorite keyword tool) to find out what the popular searches are and how many people are actually typing that particular phrase into Google/Bing/Yahoo per month.


If a good amount of people are typing certain keywords in, then you would consider writing a blog post with that certain phrase in the title section. You would then write in a way that helps give your reader the answers they were looking for regarding that topic.


Pick a Topic For Your Blog That You Enjoy

If you are not good at writing or you do not have the time this can be outsourced as well. But I think you can write 500 words about your given interest with no problems. It is important you choose a niche that you enjoy and won’t easily get sick of writing about.


We all have something, at least one thing, we are good at or know a lot about, this could be a hobby or a past job we did. Basically the knowledge that you have about a certain topic or ‘niche’, as we like to call it, can be your starting point for finding what it is that you will help people with.


Another Example…

Let’s say you are into fishing. And you know a whole lot about this subject. You know you could explain the ins and outs about fishing, even just one aspect is enough to help someone out. Say after using Jaaxy keyword tool (try it out free) you find the keyword “best fishing line for bass” gets 128 searches per month.


Then you look for a certain product or service related to what you are trying to inform them about. For this example you’d type in something like “fishing rods + affiliate program”. Or has an affiliate program and you can link to them to the product you would recdommend. Yes, I said link, which means you need to have a blog or site to use your affiliate link for your reader to click on. That is how you will get paid the commissions.

  2. Yes, it’s not that difficult to make money blogging when you actually put in some time to learn about it. When it comes to blogging, most people probably fear of building websites or something like that. I know I was scared of that! Little did I know that you can launch your website as easy as pushing a button… Of course, succeeding at blogging is a whole different thing. It does require a lot of time and dedication, but it’s all worth it in the end!

  3. Hey lev,

    Great post, indicates such a different view of things as I had before, it has surely taught me a lot in terms of how to make money using a blog, I have been trying this for some time now but to no avail, I actually have began my news blog which is how I landed on your post trying to know how I can make money with it.
    So thanks once again.

    • Dave, I appreciate you spending the time to comment here and i’m also glad you got some use out of it. If you narrow down the news blog to certain types of news only and can then tie in affiliate offers related to that niche using various affiliate marketing programs/vendors, your commissions can be as high as 50%, sometimes more, depending on the offer. If you’re able to generate enough traffic eventually, over around 10k visitors per month in a specialized type of news, you can then begin also selling banner space directly on your site as secondary income stream. Wishing much continued success.
