Having a blog is one of the most important asset for an online entrepreneur. With your blog you can communicate and reach the world.
A blog is just like your journal where you put up stories, content, pictures,and videos you use to communicate and teach your audience and people that comes to it.
There are many ways you can start making money using a blog.
Let’s dive into the different ways to make money with a blog.
1. Making money with a blog through affiliate marketing
As we all know that affiliate marketing is when you sell other peoples product to earn a commission. You become the affiliate for a product owner or a vendor.
Having a blog is a good place to promote your affiliate links. Once you have a product to promote, every affiliate has a unique link given to them to use to promote the product.
Once that link is been clicked by someone and a purchase is made, the affiliate promoting the product earns a commission. A blogger can use his blog to promote his link if he is an affiliate.
He or she can decide to scatter his link all round the blog and drive traffic to the blog. If anyone clicks the link through the blog and purchase, a commission is made.
A blog can be used to promote affiliate links and it should be done in a very proper way.
2. Making money with a blog selling physical products.
Do you have physical products you which to sell and you need a platform to sell it? Why not try blogging.
A blog can be used to sell physical products too. Sites like amazon once started as a blog to sell their physical products.
Drop-shippers create mini sites which can also be referred to as blogs to sell their drop-shipping products.
When it has to do with amazon, you can become an affiliate on amazon to start selling their products if you don’t have products to sell.
You can register as an affiliate on amazon by clicking here.
Once you have registered, amazon gives you all the tools you need to start promoting their products online or on your blog. They give you links, banners, graphics and even tools to make you successful as an affiliate online.
Once you have your link, it is just as becoming an an affiliate on Clickbank and other digital marketing affiliate programs, you can place them on your blog and indicate the type of product you are promoting.
Also, you can choose a banner of the product you want to promote, paste them on any part of your blog. Once anyone or if you send traffic to your blog and any of the banner are clicked, it will be redirected to the product on amazon website and if a sale is made through your link, you earn a commission.
So, you can actually use your blog to promote physical products from amazon.
3. Make money blogging doing Shopify
Shopify is another form of selling physical products online and it is also in the form of a blogging platform.
Shopify gives people the opportunity to create a platform that looks like a blog to promote drop-shipping products and physical products of their choice.
The good thing about Shopify is it has everything you need such as the payment options, the drag and drop options, and much more. But you have to pay for it every month for its service it gives to you if you continue to use it to sell your products.
Some people prefer creating a Shopify store with their blog. All they do is to buy a hosting and a domain. They create a blog by putting in categories of products they want to sell.
Then they send traffic to their blog and start making commissions. Using a blog is a good option to sell drop-shipping products because you might actually save a lot.

Also, you can make money with adsense on your blog. This is more or less like advertorial spaces on your blog but automatically pasted by google.
