Are you blogging for a few months now…and your earnings are around $0.88?!
I know how frustrating that can be! And how hopeless and unhopeful blogging can be! Especially when you read all those BIG FAT income reports that claim “how I made $xxx or $x,xxx in 4 months of blogging!
If this is the case for you, this post will be an eye-opener for you, and hopefully, your income will grow tremendously!!!
When starting a new blog, there is this big excitement where you feel that…”Hey, I can do this too!” Because that’s what most successful bloggers claim! “If I can do it…You can definitely do it too!“
But I want to be realistic here; blogging is (deep breath)… NOT EASY as it seems! Especially when you are working at a full-time job…or a full-time mom (like me!)
The reality is…
that blogging is a lot of HARD work! The reality is that most new bloggers (up to 2 full years) barely make $100 per month! Yep! You read that right! So, if you are in that range, know that you are doing o.k.! And just keep on going! 😉
In this post, I will share the 2 MOST POPULAR ways to help you create more income from your blog!
If you follow these 2 simple ways, there is NO WAY you won’t be able to create a full-time income from your blog!
Before I talk about these methods, YOU must work on your blog daily! I mean, don’t publish a post once in a blue moon. You must take ACTION and work…work…even if it seems like it’s “just wasting your time!”
If you are consistent with your blog! There is no reason you won’t make a full-time income from it! But, you must be realistic and know that it can take you up to 2 years to create such an income.
OK….let’s talk business, shall we?! 😉
The 2 MOST POPULAR ways to make a full-time income from blogging:
1. Having an Email List!
If you want to create a passive income from your blog, Building a list is a MUST! It is recommended to start building a list from day 1!
Take a look at all the successful bloggers out there…they all have 1 thing in common…
They all have a HUGE list!
Throughout my online experience of more than 8 years, I always heard that “the money is in the list“!
To be honest with you all, I didn’t have a list for many years! I started building a list only when I started taking this blog seriously!
It took me many years to understand that growing a list is a MUST if you want a passive income online and not from selling your own product.
So, if you don’t have your own list yet, I HIGHLY recommend you start building one ASAP! 🙂

2. Affiliate Marketing
This is one of the BEST ways to monetize your blog without creating your own product.
Take a look at these bloggers and see for yourself how much money they are creating simply from Affiliate Marketing!!!
- Michelle from MakingSenseOfCents.com
- Pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome.com
- Suzi from StartAMomBlog.com
- Megan from LoveFamilyHealth.com
As you can see, the numbers are INSANE.
The beauty of Affiliate Marketing is that…
- You don’t have to create your own product (which takes time and hard work!)
- You are getting paid by sharing your honest opinion about a product with others.
- All you have to do is place your affiliate link in your post, and you earn a commission when people buy the product/service/course.
These are only some of the benefits of Affiliate Marketing! 😉
If you would like to MASTER Affiliate Marketing, I highly recommend Michelle’s “Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing” Course – Where she teaches you EVERYTHING you need to know to start generating an income from Affiliate Marketing! (Yes, I also took her course! You can read my honest review here.)
These are the 2 most popular ways the majority of “full-time bloggers” create their full-time income from their blogs! 🙂
I hope this post helped you understand that “Growing a List” and “promoting other products” are crucial for creating a full-time income from your blog.
Of course, you have a few more ways you can generate an income from your blog: creating your own product, Sponsered posts, and ads.
But if you want “passive income,” start building a list and promoting products you think are worth sharing! 😉
In the comments below, please let me know if you already have a list or if you have already tried affiliate marketing without much success. I would LOVE to help you as much as possible! 🙂
