How to make money from a blog on WordPress

Once you’ve created your blog and customized it to your liking, you are probably wondering how can I make money out of this?

There are a lot of different ways to successfully monetize your blog. However, there is no such thing as a get rich quick scheme.

Don’t be fooled by the pictures of expensive cars and mansions because those are all fake.

We have a comprehensive guide here on how to make money using your blog

Google Ad Sense

Many bloggers make money by showing ads on their blogs. If you make a blog with monetization in mind, then Google Ad-sense is the best way to do this.

It is the largest advertising platform for bloggers and publishers. Acting as a middleman between you and the advertiser, Google allows advertisers to bid for keywords matching your content. This allows you to get the best rates possible for the ads.

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is the second most commonly used monetization strategy among bloggers. You recommend your favorite products/services to your readers, and when they make a purchase you get a referral commission.

The key to affiliate marketing is to recommend high-quality products and services that you already use and trust. There are plenty of affiliate marketing plugins and tools for WordPress that can help you make more money when promoting affiliate products.

Online Store

Many bloggers make money by selling things directly from their blog. This could be physical products, digital downloads like ebooks, artwork, music, and more. Some bloggers even offer consulting services.

We recommend using WooCommerce because it is the best eCommerce plugin for WordPress. It is also the most commonly used eCommerce platform in the world.

On top of the 3 methods above, you can do so much more with your WordPress blog. You can make WordPress blogs specifically for reviews, fashion blogging, food blogging with recipes \, and more. Each of these blog types brings you more unique opportunities to make money.

You can also turn your blog into a membership site to offer premium content and courses.
