You are automatically paid once your reader views or clicks on your selected advertisements. Two million people use Google Adsense for its extreme flexibility and as an attractive source of earning revenue without compromising on the quality of the blog.
- Amazon Affiliate (Affiliate Marketing)
This is the second most attractive way through which bloggers make big money. The concept of affiliate marketing is quite simple. By posting the Amazon offered products links on your blog you think your consumers will buy. If your reader ends up buying clicking on the link posted on your blog, Amazon shall pay you the commission entitled on the product sold.
For your further understanding you can visit the buying guide blogs. For instance, you write blogs related to health and fitness, then you have an opportunity of posting the Amazon links on your blog.
- CPA (Cost Per Action)
Bloggers have a secret underground network called the CPA (Cost Per Action) through which they are busy making fortunes online. Having a website under the name of your blog is enough to give you an opening into the CPA networks online.
In this advertising model, you act as a publisher for posting ads and you are paid for the lead generations for someone else’s business.
And the best part is you don’t even have to make a sale through those advertisements. A simple lead generation such as email address or a phone number is enough.

- Content Writing/Marketing
A professional blogger on any given day is a brilliant content writer because he doesn’t paraphrase.
A Blogger initially has a keen interest in writing which he further explores through his blogging efforts. But why restrict yourself just to blogging when you can at the same time write good content for clients!?
Especially, bloggers in the content marketing industry are paid far more than what an average content writer earns.
Once your blog is successful, you can invite other blogers and clients to post their content on your blog and get paid because it will be considered as a sponsored post.
Guestpost is another innovative way through which a blogger can explore his money-making endeavors.
They are also called as “Sponsored Posts” because on your blog you are sponsoring someone else’s content for their business lead generations or marketing.
