Initially, blogs were created as online diaries and newsletters. Now they have grown into entire media outlets, there are government, educational, celebrity blogs. However, a blog is not only a tool for providing certain information, but also a means of earning money.
The most common, but not the only, way to make money with a blog is through advertising. Banner (graphic), text (link ads), contextual (according to previous user requests), links in text, RSS (ads in feeds), sponsored advertising. Payments for clicks on the employer's links are made according to three principles: cost per click (payment is made for each click on the link), price per thousand (payment for a certain number of link impressions) and price per action (payment is made if the link is a sale of goods). Attracting advertisers is only your merit, your blog should be attractive and interesting. As a rule, advertisers appear when your magazine becomes visited.
Partnership programs. You get a commission for redirecting your readers to the partner site. However, be careful when choosing a product that you recommend to subscribers. In essence, you are advertising someone else's product and must be sure of its quality, otherwise you risk losing your reputation.
Voluntary Contributions: For this method, the blog needs to exist for a while so that you can collect a sufficient audience, since you will be asking them for money and they need to trust you. Keep in mind that this will only work if readers are willing to reward you for your work, but others may suspect begging. One way or another, this method usually works only at the very beginning, people are attracted by novelty, but then everything subsides. However, you can earn a certain amount.
Trade: Sell small items with your logo or name, or better yet, your blog address. For example, T-shirts, baseball caps, stickers, mugs, flags, and so on. You will kill two birds with one stone: make money on the sale and run an advertising campaign with the help of your readers walking in your products.
Subscription - Create a paid newsletter subscription from your site. However, this method has a drawback - there is currently little information that cannot be found on the Internet for free, so your theme must be super unique.
