One of the most popular articles on The Idea Hunters.net is an article I wrote in the summer of 2013 about how to make money writing for freelance blogging websites.
Judging by the sheer volume of the number of hits that post receives and the Web traffic it generates on a daily basis, it is safe to say that many people are interested in making money online with blogging.
That’s why I wrote another article about blogging and how to make money from your blog, entitled:
5 proven techniques to increase Web traffic and make money from your blog that you should’ve tried, like “yesterdoodles”!
5. Use your blog to sell your product online.
This is a very common method for making money from your blogs. The myriad of opportunities for awesome blog content are endless.
Your blog can feature tried-and-true known heavy traffic spikers including:
Your blog will help your business make more money by offering useful content that your customers are Web searching when they are making a buying decision.
4. Post affiliate marketing links on your blog and earn a commission on sales.
Affiliate marketing is basically using your blog to promote traffic and sales to another website.
When you direct sales to a website via affiliate links posted on your blog, you earn a commission percentage from the sale.
Consider it your “finder’s fee” for directing business to the site.
Not bad a bad way to earn some coin using just words and links typed on your keyboard from the convenience of your own home!
The Idea Hunters.net features a number of revenue-producing affiliate marketing income streams.
The most well-known and popular amongst bloggers doing affiliate marketing is Amazon.com’s popular Amazon Associates affiliate marketing program.
Here’s an example of an Amazon Associates affiliate link:
You can use affiliate marketing on your blog to generate “passive income”, which is income you are earning without actively doing anything (besides writing useful blog posts).
With the opportunity to make potentially tens of thousands of dollars online with affiliate marketing sales makes affiliate marketing an easy thing to get set up on your blog, but that’s where the easy ends and the hard begins.
You will need to be on your Grind and generating useful and meaningful content for your blog’s readers pretty much on the daily if you want to see much if any sort of income from affiliate marketing.
If you want something worthwhile in life, then you put in work for it, homie.
And that’s just how The Game is played.
3. Create an audience-based business with your blog.
Another potentially lucrative and popular way make money from your blog is by creating an audience-based business.
This is where you charge a fee for subscribers to get access to exclusive content, such as a class you will teach via Skype or an eBook only available to paying customers.
This model is also very popular but will require a lot of hustle and setup to make your audience-based business a rip-roaring success.
To learn more about how to create a successful audience-based business, then check out Danny Iny’s “Audience Business Masterclass“.
I can honestly say without the shadow of a doubt that when it comes to the blogging game, Danny Iny is 2 legit 2 quit.
Danny Iny, creator of the infamous Write Like Freddy online blogging course, clearly knows what he’s talking about when it comes to creating a highly successful online business.

2. Sell your blog to another company.
As you continue creating awesome content and telling amazing stories from this important facet of your life, then you may create a large community of loyal readers, email list subscribers, and customers.
Once you reach this level of popularity, then a company may be interested in purchasing your blog, content, and subscriber list.
