  • BloggingBlogging

Blogging is one of the best way to make money online, blogging is derived from web blog which means online Diary.

Before setting up a website for blogging you need a domain name and hosting which you can get at a cheaper rate at Bluehost.

And before you even buy your domain name, think of what you are going to be doing in your website (I mean what you are going to be blogging about) it can be Entertainment blog, News blog, Music blog, Education blog, How to’s blog, Relationship blog, Health Blog etc.

Just find a niche that you are passionate about (I mean a niche that you will be able to create lots of article about).

Blogging for profit is not a day journey, you really have to be getting 100ths of thousands of traffic to your website before you can be making your dream income with your blog.

You can download this e-book by Yaro Starak which is a Blog Profit Blueprint that will guide you on how to set up a profitable blog.

Now let’s talk about how you can make money with your blog:

  1. Google Adsense: This is a platform owns by Google and they will pay you for placing other people’s advertisement on your blog.

Adsense is the most common way that people make money through their blog and if you don’t know it is the least way to make money with your blog.

Before you can use Google Adsense your website must be standard and must have a descent amount of traffic.

Once you apply and you are approved then you are good to go.

  1. Selling Advert Space: Selling advert space on your website can be a very awesome and reputable method to make money with your blog and that can happen if people noticed that your website has a lot of visitors.

If you are having about 10,000 unique visitors per month then you can charge about $60-$150 per month and more.

  1. Affiliate Marketing: You might still be wondering why I still mentioned affiliate marketing here, it’s just because it’s the best method to monetize your blog and make even lots of money than Google Adsense.

All you need do is to join affiliate network like Warriorplus, JVZoo, Nutriprofits etc. and find products related to your niche (related to what your website is all about).

NOTE: Don’t go and pick product related to weight loss when your website is a music or entertainment blog.

  1. Guest Post: You can actually charge people to post on your blog (that’s if and only if you have a very descent amount of traffic).

Because the purpose of them guest posting to your blog is because they want to get traffic back to their own website.

And make sure you check any guest post to be sure it’s %101 related to your niche.

  1. Sponsored Post: Sponsored post is also a very awesome way to make money as a blogger.

If your great work is recognized through your blog, people will want to get traffic from your blog or probably want to sell products to your audience.

It’s now left to you to charge them base on your traffic.

Now lets move to the last tips to earn money as a teenager in nigeria.
