Hope you’re now prepared to start your blog. But remember making money from blogs is not a day work. You need to work days and nights to make money and somehow after few months you’ll be able to earn few dollars. But those dollars will inspire you to work more and more and then by this continuous process you can become a successful blogger.

You have already read more than 500 words and till now I haven’t share a single method to earn. Someone is talking too much :)

Now without wasting time I’m going to share all the methods that all the successful bloggers are using to get a six figure income. And I’m sure after using these methods; you are going to be one of them.

But just remember to earn more you should have a proper layout of blog, a good name, enough and quality contents and you need to avoid the initial mistakes done by many bloggers who fail to make money and finally close their blog.

Different Ways to Earn from Your blog

1. Google AdSense: I’m keeping Google adsense at the top in the list because of the trust and the recurring income. Google Adsense is the biggest ad network in the world and many blogger completely depends on AdSense for their income.

Google AdSense is a free, simple way for website publishers of all sizes to earn money by displaying targeted ads on their websites.

AdSense works on the per-click or per-impression basis. Whenever anybody will clicks or view on the ads, you will get money from the advertisers. The money that you will get depends on the geographic locations, and the CPC.

You will get more money if you’ve received a click from US/Canada compared to Asian countries. There are many type of ads are provided by AdSense like Text, Images, Videos etc. But to earn more from your AdSense, you need to know these basic tips.

Also, to boost the CTR of AdSense, you can use AdSense optimized WordPress themes.

2. Chitka: Chitika is a display advertising network that can serve as either a complement or alternative to other display ad networks, such as Google AdSense.

Chitika was founded in 2003 and very soon it became the alternative of the Great Google AdSense. Chitika is having more than 350,000 publishers currently and with this you can think of their popularity.

You can read all the details Chitika publisher here.There are many other display ad networks also but AdSense and Chitika are the most famous. You can make decent income through these. Many blogger who are either not satisfied with the AdSense or got banned due to some reason tries Chitika.

3. Affiliate Program: Affiliate marketing is a program where an advertiser or a merchant recruits a webmaster to place their ads on the websites. Webmaster receives some commission whenever a user clicks on those ads and perform the desired action.

Suppose you have put an ad from a company who sell a book. Whenever you visitor will click that ad, they will get redirected to merchant’s site and if your visitor will buy that book you’ll get some money as a commission for that sell. This commission percentage depends upon merchant to merchant. It may be starting from 4% to 60-70% also.

There are many affiliate programs available on the internet like the most famous Amazon Affiliate program, BlueHost Affiliate and many more are there. The best about the affiliate program is, if you can take your visitor in trust you can make many more than AdSense.

4. In Text Ads: In text ads are one of the most popular monetization methods for blogger probably after display ad network and affiliate marketing. You have probably seen them all over the internet. They are a link with double lines.

Sometimes these ads are very beneficial for blogger’s pocket but need to be used with full precautions. Because these ads eventually irritates the user and in most of the cases, they leave the blog and never return.

So you these with cautions. Infolinks, Vibrant, Viglink are considering as the giants in this field.

Till now you’ve read around 1100 words and still many methods are yet to come. So why don’t you share this article with your buddies first.

5. Text Link Ads: If you’ve very good traffic and good reputation in your niche, this ad can be worship for you. Text link ads are not but it is a link of any product/website that you have put on your site.

Be careful while putting this as it seems to be relevant and the wording should be in such a way that it should match with the sentence, if used in article.

6. Sponsored Reviews: Many companies can pay you the money if you are ready to write a good and genuine feedback for them on your blog. What you have to do is just use that product and provide a genuine review.

By providing genuine review neither you’re cheating your readers nor the advertisers. And by this way many companies can pay you decent amount. Generally companies pay in the range of $20-$500 for a single review and it depends on your blog reputations.

7. Sponsored Post: Like sponsored reviews, you can get sponsored posts also. Many website/companies can pay you if you will write a post they want. What this usually looks like is a post created for specific website, target keywords, links back to their site or to get good audiences who is similar to your blog.

8. Direct Ads: This is the most profitable way to earn from blog but one of the most difficult one. Here either you’ve to pitch the advertiser to do advertisement through your blog or if you’ve good reputation you can get a call directly from advertisers.

Then you’ve to explain about the available slots and cost to them. They best way to deal with this is to have a media kit or Advertiser page on your blog. Simply provide the URL of that page and you’re done.

9. Premium Content: The perfect example of premium content is SEOMOZ site. SEOMOZ is considered as the best site for basic SEO and so for some of the content they charge.

You can also do the same thing but you should have the content of that standard so that people will have to pay. Just lock the part for which you want to charge with the password and ask users for the money. You can simply ask for the money by PayPal. And once the user will send you the money provide the password of locked content.

10. Theme/Template Selling: If you’re good in designing, you can design your own themes or templates and can sell in premium category. This can earn you a bigger amount.

A premium theme/template is getting sold in the range of $10-$200. Either you can sell through your blog or you can also sell through the themes market ThemeForest or any other such sites.

11. Domain/Site Flipping: If you’re good in marketing and have decent knowledge of domain name and Websites, flipping can earn you the best. For domain what you’ve to do is buy a good domain and sell it using some marketplace like Flippa or websitebroker.

And for the site flipping, you have two options-
  • If you’re very good in design and development then build your own site, do some SEO and bring some traffic. Then use some money making technique like AdSense, In text ads etc. and when you see that site is now complete sell that using above market place.


  • Else buy a good website from above market place itself and do some required changes, increase some traffic and sell it at higher price.
12. Sell Services: Sell those items in which you’re good. Suppose you’re good in designing offer design service to your customers and you can earn decent money. Similarly if you’re good in making plugins, writing etc. you can provide these services to your clients through your blog. You can check the services those I am providing here.

13. Freelance Work: You’re a good blogger. You know the secret as how to bring traffic. You know how to make blog/website/product a brand. Then why don’t you make money by providing theses service for few hours. Isn’t this interesting? Yes. Register on some freelancing sites, prepare a strong profile and earn.

There are many freelancers sites where you can work. Check the list of top 5 freelancers sites.

14. E-Book Sell: Suppose you’re in blogging since couple of years and you’ve earned a lot of experience and tips. Club those in a simple e-book and sell. Keep the prices depending upon the quality of the book and the ability to solve reader’s problem. You can take the help of WP E-Commerce to sell your book.

15. Membership Site: If you’ve written a good lesson, lecturers, and videos about something, you can start a membership site where you can teach the people those secrets by charging little money.

16. Paid Surveys and Polls: If you’ve good reputations in the market, you can even earn for the surveys done at your site. Many companies want to know the mood of public and for this they do surveys/polls by the use of external vendors. You can be the one and can charge decent dollars for this.

17. Event Speaker: For an event speaker you really have to be best. Not all the blogger get this offer.

Top 5 Blogging Apps to Manage your Blogs like a Pro

By Ashutosh Jha → Monday, February 13, 2017
Different bloggers have different needs, but there are some requirements that all bloggers share. They all need to create great content, and they all need to stay up to date with the latest trends if they hope to succeed.

Blogging Apps to Manage your Blogs
You need to have a clear goal and a clear purpose, and not being able to manage your blog while on the move is no way to work toward that goal. Working hard is necessary, but working smart is even better. What you need are tools and applications that will get work out of the way and let you focus on writing.

Here are 5 apps that help you manage your blog on the move:

WordPress/Blogger/Tumblr

If you have a blog, then you simply need the app for your blogging platform, no question about it. Regardless of which one you need to choose, they will all be helpful in expediting the management process and staying up to date.

It is even possible to get notifications on your smartphone that will help you respond to comments or emergencies quickly should they come up while you’re out.

Out of experience, WordPress seems to be the most well-defined and useful of the three. On it you can edit or add posts to your blog as if you were on your computer. Tumblr might even be particularly well-suited for mobile use, but know that it uses quite a bit of data.

Blogger has an app, but it doesn’t seem to save work very well and isn’t updated often enough to be reliable. All of that being said, it might be helpful to get all three of the major blogging apps so you can keep track of blogging trends.

A Virtual Private Network

Just as important as writing a blog is protecting that blog from various cyber threats. If you are out using public networks, then you need to know the risks and the ways that you can defend yourself.

The main problem stems from the fact that hackers can easily intercept any data that travels over a public network. This data can include personal information, financial data, business data, or most pertinently, the login details for your blog.

If hackers get ahold of this, then you can consider your blog as good as gone. This is why you need a Virtual Private Network to protect yourself, which is a service that you can use to connect your device to an offsite server.

This connection will be encrypted so that you can safely use public networks and know that no one can possibly know what you are using the internet for other than using a VPN.

In addition, travelers can safely know that their IP address will be hidden by the offsite server, allowing you to research whatever you need to without worries about regional restrictions or government censorship.

There are a lot of different VPNs out there for you to use, each with their own particular niche, but you need to find a VPN that will fit you and your blogging and research needs well, so you will want to find one that is well-reviewed and can suit a variety of requirements.

Pulse

Research and knowledge are keys to staying ahead in the blogging world, and you need to know about every major story that comes out in your fields of expertize.

This is why you need Pulse, an application by LinkedIn that will take into consideration your requests and interests and use them to create a news feed for you that you can read while waiting for other things.

Information is blog’s lifeblood, and good information is the key to success. Yet there are simply too many things in today’s busy world in order to stay on top of everything important, much less the chaff of the internet.

The good news to this matter is that Pulse uses professional opinions from LinkedIn in order to determine what articles make the cut for your eyes. If you aren’t sure if you’re getting the right feed, then change your settings and see what you can find.

Pulse is available on iTunes and Android and is a great companion for those with a LinkedIn account or a desire to constantly learn.

Evernote

Whatever your purpose in writing a blog, you have a lot of things to remember and a lot of notes to take. Evernote is your best hope to keep your appointments and notes in order so that you can spend less time organizing and more time blogging. In short, it helps you stay more productive.

Considering how it is by far the most popular third party app for scheduling and note-taking, you will be glad to know that it deserves its sterling reputation. You can take notes of more than just text.

Photographs and other forms of data are welcome for your record-keeping purposes, and there are options that allow you to collaborate with other users if your blog requires it.

While there is a premium option available that might worry or intrigue you, the main difference is the amount of data you are allowed to use. If you use text for the most part, then you will be fine with the free version.

For more data-intensive notes involving audio or photos, then you will want to get an inexpensive premium subscription. You can find Evernote for any major smartphone OS.

Diigo

While Evernote is a great app for personal note taking and organization, Diigo really shines in the areas of research and annotation.

In addition to allowing screenshots and annotation, the application will actually save your annotations for later visits to the same page and uses an account you can save information to. Tagging and note-taking are easy, and you will get used to it quickly.

One of the best features on Diigo is an outliner which will either organize your information for you or otherwise follow your customizable instructions to organize it.

Another great part of the app is the varied tools that they have for groups and the sharing options within those groups. If you are a blogger that collaborates often, then Diigo is the perfect app for you.

You can download an app to help you on either your iPhone or Android device. It would be wise to investigate their website for more information and tools.

These five apps will help you to make your place in the world of blogging and enable you to continue to manage it on the go.

Whether it is research, protection or management tools that you need, you can be sure that there will be something to help you. Used together, there will be nothing that cannot stop the dedicated mind.

What other must-have applications do you use when you blog? Share in the comments below.

Be it a small or large business, all need to advertise their product to gain some initial customers and to scale it up. Among all kind of advertisement, video advertising plays an import role. It is the opportunity in video marketing which has forced social media giants Facebook to come up with video ads.

Mysimpleshow Review
It is the natural fact that people understand visuals better than texts. If you are active on social media, just do an experiment. First, share some text on your page and then in another post one image or video and then compare reach.

I did the same and found the post containing graphics reaches more than 18 times more than the text post. Videos even work better in such cases.

But the thing is everyone can make a good video initially. People try to mix up some audio with the images, but that doesn’t result in a video which can be used for business purpose.

Top Money Saving Tips for Bloggers: 9 Proven Techniques

Let’s start with some of the best money saving tips for bloggers. You will find many bloggers or people living online life complaining about the saving and this post is for all those who wish to save some amount.

#1 Look for combination of Freebies

Usually, bloggers keep on searching the best blogging tools which can save their time and provide maximum ROI.

But as the price of internet marketing tools is high and so many are unable to buy. The best option for this is the combination of free tools which complete the same requirements.

For example, let’s say you need some software like Grammarly. Also, Grammarly provides many features apart from the main grammar checking like plagiarism checking, etc. which is available in only premium version.

Again the Grammarly Premium is available for at least $11.99 when you will buy their yearly plan, but everyone can’t afford this. Even you can use Grammarly premium free, but that is for only one month.

The best alternative to this is, use the free version of Grammarly and then use any plagiarism checker tool for plagiarism.

By this way, you can save some good amount of money. But there are some limitations also-

  • Premium version of tools have more features
  • You will have to manage multiple accounts

#2. Wait for Some Big Events/Holidays

During some holidays or events, manufacturers provide huge discounts and deals on their products.

Sometimes you may even find the discount up to 85-90% also which is huge. Let’s say some product cost around $100, and if you’re able to grab a discount of 90%, then you are getting at just $10.

You may find a bigger discount on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, New Year, Easter, Christmas, etc.

#3. Look for the Coupons

Coupons are the excellent way to save money on online transactions. You can get some lucrative offers and discounts using coupon codes.

There are multiple coupons sites where you can visit to get the coupon codes for a discount on any product you are purchasing online.

Recently, when I was buying hosting, I got a deal for 20%. I was about to make payment and simply checked coupons to get some additional discount and found a deal of 20%.

To get the best coupon just search “product name+ coupon” in Google and you will find hundreds of website offering coupon code. Just go through the description of the coupon and if it is suitable for you, copy it and apply.

For examples, if you are looking for American Swan coupons, just search this keyword in Google and get all the available codes.

Similarly, you can also search for “product name + offers”. For example, Ajio offers to get the offers available on Ajio.

You can also check our Tesla Theme coupon code and UniHost Hosting Review for the offers on WordPress theme and hosting.

#4. Participate in Giveaway/Contests

Giveaway and contests are a good and smart way to attract visitors and convert visitors into a subscriber.

Many bloggers and internet marketers keep on organizing a giveaway for some blogging tools, Hosting packages to attract some subscribers and promote their blogs and products. You should participate in those contests to get a chance to win the tools.

Such contests just ask you to like on Facebook, Tweet and/or subscribe which won’t take more than a couple of minutes. In response, if you will win the giveaway, you will have amazing blogging tools to use.

#5. Reviews

You must be hearing bloggers getting some gift from companies and PRs’ to promote their brand and products.

Some companies ask you to write a review about the product and promote it in your network in exchange for some gift which may be the product.

You can approach the company which manufactures the tool you are looking to get and contact for the free copy and in response to a review post on your blog.

Recently I wrote a blog post on how to get Grammarly premium free where you can see how to approach a company to provide your free premium access to their product in exchange for a review on your blog.
Money Saving Tips for Bloggers
The benefit of this method is, you can also earn from an affiliate. If someone buys from the affiliate link of your review, then you can make a certain percentage of the sale amount which usually varies from 10-80%.

#6. Co-ordinate with other bloggers

Let’s say there are some products which you are not promoting and want to buy such products?

In such cases, check your friends’ blog or fellow bloggers’ blog. If someone from your group is promoting, just check how much affiliate commission company is providing in that product.

Let’s say it is 50%. Now approach that particular blogger and say you want to buy it from his/her link but want some part of the commission (e.g. 20-30%).

Your friend will never ignore such offers as he/she will also make some commission and you are also getting good deals.

The only thing you need to take care here is, the other person should be your close friend, or you have done any form of business together due to obvious reasons.

#7. Go for long term

You will always find companies providing great deals on long time subscription. For example, if you will look at the Ahrefs subscription, you will find 20% off on yearly subscription, and this is not just with Ahrefs but almost all the products.
Money Saving Tips for Bloggers
So if you have tried the product and you feel that it worth in the long term consider buying it for longer.

But before buying any product for a longer period, ask some questions to yourself to avoid unnecessary expenses.

  • Do you need this product?
  • For how much time you need?

#8. Diversify the investment

Many bloggers are struggling when it comes to the investment of the money they earned from blogging.

As I said, investment and saving are equally important as learning is and so you should plan accordingly. It can be something like below-

  • Invest some part to grow your blog/business through which you are earning
  • Keep some part of your expenditure
  • Invest few percentage to enhance your skills
  • Save/invest the rest of your amount
Usually, if you will see government employee investing, they don in FD or LIC, so similar fixed return funds. While IT or corporate sector employees tend to do in SIP, mutual funds, etc. apart from the traditional investment.

I have seen blogger also investing in Bitcoins, Bonds, etc. So the main thing is to diversify your investment and spread it across Fixed Deposits, PPF, Bonds, ELSS, Mutual Funds and Equity Market.

#9. Use co-working places

If you are a full-time blogger and feel working at home decreases your productivity then it’s time to move ahead and find a dedicated space for working.
Money Saving Tips for Bloggers
Well, for many people get a dedicated place for working can be expensive and so a co-working place is highly recommended.

You can opt for any of the below options-

  • Look for a co-working space like 91springbooard, Innov8, etc. where you will be issued a pass for daily/monthly/yearly basis as per sheet and facilities you require.
  • You can also get the space in partnerships. For example, you are working in the day time and so you can allow someone else (e.g. small call-center) to use the infrastructure and space during the night and can share the cost.
  • There are some companies which provide few sheets on a monthly basis at some cost.
By this way, you can increase your productivity at less cost. Here is an interesting stuff related to co-working spaces.

A 2011 Deskmag survey of more than 1,500 coworkers in 52 countries supported her findings:

  • 75% reported an increase in productivity since joining their space
  • 80% reported an increase in the size of their business network
  • 92% said an increase in the size of their social circle
  • 86% reported a decrease in their sense of isolation
  • 83% stated that they trusted others in their co-working space

Wrapping it up!


Saving money is crucial for everyone, and you should make it a habit like you earn. I have tried to cover all the important aspect of money saving tips for bloggers, and I am sure these will help you.

Don’t buy the stuff you don’t require and try to invest the money earned as much as you can. A start with the saving account can work better. Also, try the trial period of any product before buying it for the long term.

Apart from all these, you can also try the following to save money being a blogger-

  • Make monthly budget
