Step 11. Monetize your Blog

Monetize your Blog

Monetization is a huge topic and by far out of the scope for this post, but I'll just give you a few ideas:

  • Sell your service: On each blog post, you can have a sidebar, or a footer bar, which tells visitors about your service. So if your blog is about drum tuning again, you could offer drum tuning services to visitors. This is a great way to build trust and generate new clients over the internet for free.
  • Sell your product: Do you have a digital or a physical product? Sell it. You can add it, to the sidebar or a sticky footer. If you build trust and provide value, people will sell your products.
  • Don't have a product? Use affiliate marketing: You can easily sell related products of others with thousands of affiliate programs. You could sell physical products from amazon, or digital services from millions of providers.
  • Paid Advertising: You can cooperate with related companies to promote their products on a certain spot on your website.
  • Google Adsense: That only makes sense, when you have tons of traffic, but if you have, you can simply add a spot on your blog, where Google Adsense can place their ads and you will be paid per click.

This is just a short overview and I would love to go into those methods in detail in a follow-up. I hope that you could get the idea and I wish you lots of success with your blog!

I hope that you could follow along with my tutorial and that you can now continue finishing your blog on your own.

In case you have questions, just hit me up and ask.

Take care, Christian
