Here Are 6 Ways To Make Legitimate Money Via Blogging

Blogging is now a legitimate way to make money online, If you are still doubting. And you will be learning about the 6 things you can do to make money from blogging. These things are very “doable” and they are what you should get involved in if you are really considering making money from blogging.
Blogging is something that requires patience, consistency, and discipline. It may mean publishing great contents every day for over a year before you really start to make any money from it. I know that there are exceptions to this. However, most Nigerians I have come across seems to spend one, two or more years building their blogs, brand, and authority, before making any serious amount of money from the blog.
I like blogging and I know many bloggers in Nigeria who feel the same. If you feel the same way and you want to make more money from what you like, let’s talk about making money blogging and what it really means.

1. Create your own Products

You can create your own products (e.g. ebooks, audios, videos, software etc) and then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product. Lots of information marketers in Nigeria do this already. You too can as long as you create legitimate products that offer a whole lot of value to your buyers. You would be able to buyers if your product is what your blog readers/visitors want. This is why you need to make sure your product is what people will buy – it must be valuable and useful to them, atleast you can’t expect me to use my money to buy something that’s not worth it.

2. Advertising

This is definitely the oldest way of making money with a blog. Some bloggers are starting to say that Blog Ads is not the best way to make money blogging. However, there are lots of brands still looking for blogs to advertise on. You can sell banner or text advertising space directly on your blog or you can sign up with a program like Google AdSense(content is key) or MediaNet. Either way, you won’t make a whole lot of money from the ads if you are not getting enough quantity and quality traffic to your blog every day, so build more on your daily or weekly views then look for company that will like to buy an ads space in your blog.

3. Paid Membership

One more advanced way to make money blogging is to setup membership area for your blog. Many people have created a paid membership area on their blog.This is typically for exclusive or premium content that your premium members can only access the member’s area. You will need to create the membership area and then add things that can’t easily be accessed from the web for your premium members. There are both free and paid membership plugins or script you can get and then set up a membership area for your blog. As a Nigerian, it safe to create membership area where people can pay for with online payment tools for Nigerians such as InterSwitch.

4. Affiliates

There are many affiliate networks you can join as a Nigerian which allows you to promote other people’s products and services while you get paid commission for every sale you generate. You simply put a link (affiliate link) or a banner (with your affiliate link) strategically on your blog and then get your readers to click through and buy the product/service. To make the most of this, it is best you select products that are related to blog’s contents. Examples of affiliate networks/programs you can join are the 160+ Affiliate Programs that Pay Recurring Commissions, others are jumia, konga and NiaraBET.

5. Sponsored Posts

Sponsored posts are basically posts you write about a brand, product or service which you get paid for to publish on your own blog. An individual or a company will pay you to publish an article about them or their product/service on your blog. You will write these in a form of review and get your readers to read and take action by making use of the product or service you reviewed. Sponsored posts is a way to go, you can get an idea from “Sponsor a Post on Make Money Online Nigeria”

6. Paid Services

In addition to products, you should offer paid services (e.g. coaching, training, maintenance, teaching, planning etc) and then use your blog to promote your own services. You are basically using your blog to sell yourself. You’ll need to convince people that you’re worth buying and then be able to back up your claims once they purchase your service. Make sure you investigate all the legal implications and also make sure you’re not claiming to be a professional if you’re not one. If you do, people will expect a professional service from you and if your service isn’t professional, you will lose credibility and people will label you a scammer, am sure you don’t want to be termed that.

If you’re truly interested in becoming a money making blogger, you should start by looking through already money making blogs. It may take you time to read everything on our archive, but it will be worth it. You’ll practically become a better money making blogger.

In conclusion, I need you to know that you will need a lot of traffic to your blog before you start making lots of money blogging. You should start now and work your way up the different levels of bloggers in Nigeria and don’t forget that there are lots of bloggers out there, so do something exceptional and captivating it sells.3.
