Visitors can read your blog content for free. They can view all of your blog’s archieves and read a book’s worth (or more) of content. When most people think of making money with a blog, they think about advertisements. I do not believe in advertising on a blog because the advertisements take people away from your blog. However, you don’t need advertisements to make a lot of money from your blog. These are the ways that you can make money with your blog:
- Search through all of your blog post titles, and choose one that can become your next book. Instead of trying to think of new ideas, one of the ideas you already came up with could be your next book.
- Create training courses based on your blog’s content. I created a Twitter Domination Training Course combining content from my book, blog posts, and other sources to create a product.
- Create YouTube videos about your blog posts while using AdSense in your videos. The reason advertisements on a YouTube video are good while advertisements on a blog are bad is that everyone is used to waiting 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, the viewer can skip the ad, and then they get to watch the video without any other interruption. Ads on a blog will result in constant interruption that ends when someone clicks on an ad and leaves your blog.
- Have blog post based consultations available for your visitors. Offer different consultation plans based on your best blog posts. If you charge $200 an hour and consult people for 20 hours every month, that’s an extra $4,000 every month!
