You Have to Do More Than Just Blog to Earn Money Online – You Have to SELL!
According to TheBalance, initially, blogging involved a personal weblog, in which a person would journal about their day.
Like most new innovations on the Internet, many entrepreneurs saw a marketing potential in having a blog, and blogging took off from there.
Take it or leave it, one of the concrete 100 ways to earn money from home is to provide value or solve a problem before you can earn money on your blog and make it a success. Don’t make the mistakes many people make when starting off.
As you’re providing value and solving a problem your business model (money making strategy of your blog) is cleverly and uniquely crafted all around SELLING your product or expertise.

MAKE MONEY ONLINE #TIP 1: Write an eBook
If you’ve been a fan of oasdom.com for a while, you’ll notice that publishing ebooks that solve certain problems is a big part of what we do. (We’re not selling ours for now, we’re using another strategy that you’ll come to know about at the end of this post.).
One of the best ways to make money online is to write a book. Writing an ebook is the most logical step for many bloggers out there to make mone. You can even convert or re-purpose your problem-solving blog posts into ebooks.
Real life example of making money with eBook
I came across an ebook by another Nigerian blogger Chy Anegbu of Allnigerianfoods.com, blogging about food.
This book is capped at #6,000.
Chy Anegbu tries to make the blog as comprehensive and interesting as possible by using both detailed articles and videos to show visitors how to make delicious Nigerian foods.
So one of the ways to make money online or monetize the blog was to create the Ultimate Nigerian Cookbook.
Come to think of the profit made on the blog just by selling that ebook to hundreds of people who visit the blog at that price?
There are many other bloggers who make money online by selling their ebooks and you can do the same.

MAKE MONEY ONLINE #Tip 2: Sell something you actually make
This is an option for you to make money online if you blog about crafts. Maybe you knit awesome stuffs like sweaters, you develop mobile apps, computer software, or anything just name it, you can sell your creations on your blog.
Websites like etsy is one big platform for people who makes crafts and are looking for ways to make money online. You can sell your crafts (clothing, jewelry, etc. among many others).
Your product just have to be innovative, and that’s never been done before. For example irresistible bead designs, wire-works and even shoes you built all by yourself can be sold on your blog (if you blog about such topics).
MAKING MONEY ONLINE #Tip 3: Create and Sell Courses
Selling courses are one of the best ways to make money online on your blog, as you’ll keep earning over and over again from one digital product you’ve created.
You can be a tutor and create a course (just like our free blogging course and our Power blogging Roadmap course that’s coming soon). Creating a course will help you deliver value to your audience.
Also we’ve created other online courses like: How to design a website without coding, how to open a paypal account in Nigeria, and more.. We make money from this.
Closely related to selling courses is creating a membership site as a strategy to make money online from your blog.
The difference is that the courses don’t necessarily have to be something that is only accessible online. It can be DVD series or audio podcast series.
You may look down on your self that you’re not capable of teaching other people but trust me, you can, you know something!
There are a certain number of people who want to learn what you know. You can teach them on your blog and get paid for it. Courses are a great way to make money online.

How Much Can You Make From Your Blog?
There’s no limit to how much your blog can make.
If you’re asking: “If I have X number of visits on my blog each day how much should it be hearing?”, then I’ll say you’re asking the wrong question.
You see, it all depends on you, the value you offer, the size of your audience, and the business model of your blog.
For example, the 10 blogs that earn outlandish incomes have their income streams and they employ any or a combination of the following:
- A donation button: All blogs in the top 10 have an income stream. Some blogs have no advertising or affiliate programs, all they have is a donation button.
Come to think of a website with 179,000 plus visits per day with only a donation button. With the blog first offering value, the blog visitors are willing to donate. That’s one strategy.
Sponsored post: Once you start to get traffic to your blog, you’ll definetely start to receive sponsored post offers from other bloggers, advertisers and more. You can charge as high as low as $50 and high as $1,000. Trust me, blogs that provide value will reap rewards in massive profit.
Interestingly, advertisers and businesses in other country will reach out to you if the demographics of your blog visitors suits their need and you can use western union tracking services to receive payment.
- Affiliate marketing: This is another money making strategy used by top earning blogs which you can also employ on your blog.
For example, tech and gadget bloggers in Nigeria make money on their blog via Jumia or Konga affiliate programs.
It’s simple, they get paid when their blog visitors follows their link to either Konga or Jumia and make payment of a device. You don’t need to own the products, you just have to recommend the product and you get paid for it. More on this in our power blogging course.

- Google Ad sense: So popular. In fact, it’s one of the first things that comes to mind when you talk about making money on blogs, but it’s not going to be rewarding for beginners.
Rewards in google adsense comes with a reasonable audience size or huge blog visits. For authority blogs this is an added income stream.
- Blog Ads & Text Ads: This is one of the most popular option top earning blogs use to make money online.
As you can see, there’s no limit to how much your blog can make, you can combine all these income strategies on your blog but there’s work to be done before the rewards in profit.
Grand Master Illustration On How to Make Money Online

Ways to Make Money Online – Conclusion

A question might come to your mind right now…
Why did I let you know about all these?
It’s because I want to be honest with my visitors. In my opinion, the best way to gain trust from your blog visitors is to be 100% transparent and this is exactly what I’m currently doing. Aside from that, I’m also a pretty friendly folk.
