How much money can you make with a blog?

Well, this is the million-dollar question, hahaha everyone would like to know, but the truth is that it depends on many factors.

For example:

  • The time you dedicate to the blog and that specific objective
  • From the experience you have in monetizing a blog
  • From the volume of blog visits or the CPC of your articles
  • In the ways you monetize the blog, etc.

But from our own experience and from what we know from other fellow bloggers, it can be said that with a well-positioned blog on a topic, you can earn between 400-1000 dollars per month (among various ways of monetizing).

For some people, this value will be unattainable, while for others, it will be laughable because they generate many more dollars per month with their blog. But this will depend on some of the factors mentioned above. The important thing is that, YES, it is possible to make money with a blog, and that is why here are eight ways to achieve it.

8 Effective Ways to Monetize a Blog

Now we break down each of the points, with examples of sites and pages where you can register to facilitate the monetization of your blog with some of these ways.

1- Generate income with advertising on websites (Adsense)

One of the most used ways to earn money with a blog passively is by monetizing your blog with advertising. And one of the most popular and effective ways is with Google Adsense advertising.

The great advantage of advertising is that you do not need anyone to buy to earn a commission. In this case, money is generated when someone clicks on an ad on our website.

To use these ads on your website, you just have to register on the Adsense platform and place a code provided by Google on your website. In this case, the more visits you have on your site, the higher the income in Adsense.

2- Earn money with sponsored articles

One of the best ways to earn safe money online is by writing sponsored articles on your blog for brands and companies. For example, you can write a post where you mention a brand or company and in exchange they make you a monetary payment.

Companies will contact you directly if you manage to position your blog in a certain area. If you are starting a blog, the most beneficial thing for you is to register on specialized platforms. One of the best is socialpubli, which connects bloggers and brands to exchange sponsored articles.

3- With sponsored Link Building

Another way to earn money from home without investing is by placing sponsored links on your website articles.

For example, imagine that you have an article about the online video editor on the first page of Google. Some of the tools that are not in your post may contact you to add a link to their tool in your content. It is an easy and very effective way to earn money from home with your website.

4- With CPA Advertising

Another type of advertising that you can use to make money with the blog is CPA (Cost Per Action) advertising. In this case, when a user clicks on your ad, they are redirected to a landing page where they have to perform an action, such as registering for a webinar, opening an account, or entering their personal information to receive information from the website.

You receive a commission when a user completes the action. In this type of advertising, the conversion rate is lower than in CPC advertising, but the commission per conversion is much higher.

5- Selling courses on your blog

This is one of the best ways to earn money online, because it is something created by you and on your website. You do not have intermediaries, and all the profits are for you.

To do this, you must position yourself as an expert on a subject, like education consulting and create online courses in video or pdf to sell through your blog or page.

The great benefit of paid online courses is that they can become totally passive income systems. You just have to create it and sell it in PDF or video format through an automated system to your community.

6- Private paid content (membership)

It is one of the best ways to make money with a blog in an automated way, since membership sites or membership sites are platforms with “exclusive” content for members who pay a monthly fee and have access to everything you have published on the blog.

You can create a membership in your WordPress blog with the MemberPress plugin, one of the most complete that exists, or have an external membership in sites like Patreon, and the problem is that in this case the platform keeps a commission.

It is a very interesting option if you want to monetize your blog from minute 0.

7- Offering your services

Offering your services is one of the fastest ways to start making money from your blog.

To do this, you must work on your personal brand and blog and position yourself as an expert on your subject, so that users see you as a professional who can help them solve their problems. Over time, you will see many people willing to pay for your services or advice.

Some ways to offer your services with a blog are:

  • Consultations via Skype, email, or face-to-face
  • Conferences and workshops
  • Creation of webpages
  • Collect and organize feature requests
  • Organic positioning optimization ( SEO )
  • Paper writing, such as
  • Translation of contents, etc.
  • Video editing and creating

8- Sale of digital products

Another of the most profitable ways to make money is with a blog. You avoid commissions to third parties, and you do not have intermediaries. 

And best of all, they are automatic passive income, you have the job of creating the product once, and you never touch it again, and it may be sold for months or years.

For example, you can sell:

  • Ebooks (digital books)
  • Templates (resume, wedding PowerPoint, WordPress, etc.)
  • Workbooks
  • Plugins, etc.


There are other ways to get extra income with a blog, but these are the ones that we consider most effective for those who are starting with your blog.

We hope this article has helped you understand how to make money with a blog in 2022 in a simple way and without complicating your life by looking for aggressive formulas or formulas that only work for a few.

Even so, monetizing a blog is not an easy task and it takes a lot of effort and patience. You are not going to achieve it in two months, but if you are constant, you will achieve your goal like so many other bloggers. And you, what method do you use to earn money with your blog?
