Ever wondered how some bloggers are able to generate money with their blog and others struggle? Well, in this article we breakdown 7 Simple Steps To Start Making Money With Your Blog.
1. Send Traffic To Your Blog
Without traffic, it is almost impossible to make money with your blog. As a blogger, you need to think about which methods are you going to use to drive traffic. There are free and paid methods.
One of the best free methods is Google Organic traffic because you can write some blog posts once and receive traffic to those posts for years to come. However, this method takes time to see traction as you usually have to have many blog posts up.
One of our favorite paid traffic sources is Facebook Advertising. If you have a Landing Page and a solid Lead Magnet, you can create and ad and not only get cheap traffic but also capture your visitors name and email and build your email list at the same time.
2. Choose A Catchy, Optimized Blog Name
For your blog, you should have a blog name that matches up with the niche or products and services you are going to offer. For example, the Entrepreneur Millionaire name describes in two words what we are about.
To help people become entrepreneurs and achieve financial freedom. When someone comes on our blog, they can tell what we represent based off our name. You should do the same and choose a name that’s catchy, not too long, and represents what you want your blog to be about.
3. Have Advertisements On Your Blog
One of monetizing your blog is to have advertisements in the sidebar and within the content of your blog. You can apply for an advertisement network, such as Google Adsense, and begin putting ads in your content.
We don’t recommend putting too many ads on your blog to the point it makes your blog unreadable. This is going to cause more damage than good and will make it difficult to grow an audience of people interested in your content.
The great thing about Google Adsense is that you get paid once someone clicks on the ad and purchases. This can be a great source of passive income because if your blog is getting enough traffic, there are going to be a certain number of people who click links and purchase products.
4. Exchange Links
Exchange links with other websites or blogs that share your blog topic. Remember, search engine will rank your blog based on the quantity and quality of links pointing to it.

5. Regularly Post On Your Blog
If you’re serious about making money with your blog, you have to regularly be posting on your blog. Regularly posting on your blog increases the chances of your blog receiving Google Organic traffic which will result in more traffic.
Think about it. If you are in a niche with hundreds of other blogs, what is going to separate yourself from the other blogs. Well, one way is to post more than others. Instead of posting 2 times per week, post 5 times per week. Just make sure you are consistently posting content on your blog so your blog can continue to grow.
6. Double Check Grammar/Spelling Errors
This should go without saying, but make sure you are proofreading your content before sending it out to the world. You don’t want people to stop reading your content and leave your blog because of too many grammatical errors.
You can use a tool like Grammarly to search for errors so you can fix them. Since your content is going to be on your blog for a long time, spend the extra few minutes reading over it and correcting your mistakes. It’ll make it easier for the readers to read your content.
7. Differentiate Yourself
With so many blogs in the world, what makes your blog different? It can be your mission, your layout, your writing style. Figure out what makes you stand out and focus on expanding that.
Make sure you are providing unique content that goes along with what you stand for and you can carve out your own piece of the blogging pie.
Apply these 7 steps and you’ll be on your way to making money with your blog.
