  1. I have always believe that SEO link building and High quality writing is one of the best way to gain traffic and affiliate marketing is one of the way for your blog to ear money. I really agree with your post. Thank you for sharing it.

    1. Hello Dorothy,
      Yes! SEO might be important to ones blog but really i never focused on SEO and i still get traffic… There are more ways of getting traffic and with traffic your affiliate market will go smooth and well. Thanks for your comment.

  2. Hey Babanature,

    Yep, those are definitely four areas you can make money using your blog.

    Now I personally hate Adsense because unless you have a lot of sites up you aren’t going to make that much money and I sure don’t want them leaving my blog before they’ve done what they came to do.

    I’m all for affiliate marketing because that’s how I make the majority of my money but it’s definitely after you’ve built up the relationship with your readers and your list that will really start to bring in the sales.

    I started doing consulting last summer and it has now been building up so it’s a great way to make some money through people hiring you. Again it all comes with that trust issue and they’d much prefer working with people they know, like and trust.

    I’m not a freelance writer and I don’t provide ad space on my blog so I can’t really comment on either of those. I know plenty of people that are doing well though in those areas.

    Great share here Babanature!


    1. Hello Adrienne,
      Nice to see your comment once again. I love adsense and it is one of my main source of income, as long as there is traffic the money will start piling but i never put my ads in a way that will annoy my readers…
      i always advice any blogger coming up to have a page that showcase there skills like the “Hire me” page because it truly pays ones your readers tart gaining your trust. It’s nice to hear that your consulting is going on smoothly. Thanks for the comment and do have a lovely week ahead!

    1. Hello Darmawan,
      Google Adsense is one of the best ways of making money online for both new and old bloggers but the truth is they can not give you what you’re imaging. that’s why it is good to combing other source of generating income with your blog. thanks for the comment.

    1. Hello Nwosu,
      Adsense does not work for some people and it works perfect for some. i love the adsense program because it has truly helped me alot and to be honest with you they are one of the best in monetizing a blog. what it takes to make your adsense fruitful is always experiment. affiliate marking is being used by famous and upcoming bloggers and it is very good for any blogger to seize the opportunity of participating in the program because it pays. thanks for the comment.

    1. They are lots of affiliate programs out there, you just need to choose your niche preferred products. Amazon’s Affiliate program, FlexOffers, Commission Junction. They are great for starters.

  3. Hi Babanature,

    This is very interesting for me because I’m planning to start trying to monetize my blog in the next few months. I’m not that keen on the idea of Adsense – my initial plan is to build a list and then try to make some money via affiliate marketing. I’m also hoping to write some Kindle eBooks. I may do some freelance writing eventually, but I’d rather concentrate on writing my own stuff for the time being.

    Thanks very much for these ideas,


    1. Hello Sue,
      why do many bloggers don’t support adsense on there blog? well Affiliate and freelance are one great way to make money out of blog. and rendering your service to others is also a great idea. Thanks for stopping by and hope you’ll stop by some other times.

  4. Hi Babanature – there are two reasons I’m not keen on Adsense – I’ve heard it can be difficult to make much money from it but, more importantly, I wouldn’t have control over exactly what’s being advertised on my blog and I’m not keen on that – I’d rather decide exactly what products I’m going to promote.


    1. Like my people would say; it is better to try it your self than hearing it from others. But your points on the adsense program are well said. it is best to have a particular and exact product than running a random ads. Thanks once again for the comment

  5. Hey Babatunde,
    A nice blog you have here, one thing i love about your blog is the domain name……One Naija Blog. I love that.

    Its really not very easy to make money with a blog as it takes some time, consistency, dedication and lots of effort yet, its never a rocket science.

    Those are really some pretty ways to make some dough with your blog but you just have to learn the basics because its easily said than to do.

    Nice tips though, thanks for sharing.

    BTW: Thanks for your visit to my blog, i appreciate.

    Happy to connect.

    1. Babatunde? well thanks for the compliment.
      making money in general is not an easy task, it requires time, hardwork, dedication and also perseverance to make it in the blogging world and even in general life. thanks for the comment and do have a lovely weekend.

    1. Hello James,
      yeah! google adsense is the common way to make money through blogging. but if you’re thinking of aiming higher, then affiliate and service rendering is the best step to take.

  6. Thanks for the great content, i haven’t tried out affiliate marketing and others because am scared of been hit by google panda and all that so am just using cpc networks like adsense for now.

    1. Hello Samuel,
      Really? Are you afraid of google updates? if your contents are unique there is know way to fear. getting into affiliate wont make your blog marked. it would be nice going into it if you’re trying to make good dough. thanks for the comment.

  7. I have made some money with affiliate programs. But I think one of the most lucrative methods is to be a consultant or teacher. I have done this, leveraging the credibility built up from blogging.

    The reason I prefer it is because you can charge by the hour. With affiliate marketing you just get a cut of the sale. And with writing, you usually get paid by the word or article. And the time you spend writing a piece can vary quite a lot.

    1. Hello Matt,
      I couldn’t agree with you more! Rendering your service(s) is one of the best ways of making money through blogging. because it has a lot if advantages compare to others. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you some other times…
