Well undoubtedly placing advertisement is the easiest way to get started with make money blogging but I don’t challenge your noble thought of not placing ads to give a great user-experience. Even though you need to generate some income to pay your hosting and domain bills or if not, it’s still good to make some money. Is int it?

Here I’m sharing some of the working methods used by professional bloggers to earn income without placing ads, and you can pick one which suits your need. I also recommend you to read this guide by Harsh Agrawal, where he shared how he is making money from his blog. This will give you some great insight and ideas for your own blog.

write an eBook

If you are an expert in any field,you can write your book on the topic in which you are expert. Even you can sell your copyrights to another publishing agencies. Writing a book on a topic which will sell forever will guaranteed its sell for long time and hence you will keep making money out of it. You can sell your eBook on your blog or even on Kindle publishing platform. This way you will generate a recurring income for your blog.

One missing opportunity which you can use is by using your existing content of your blog to create an eBook. If you have created a series of posts and that can be converted into an eBook, you are almost there.  For example, check out ShoutMeLoud WordPress guide, and instead of links you can create an eBook and sell it on various places online. If you are not into selling eBook, you can always use it to increase your Email signups in return of free giveaway.

Native Advertising:

There has been a big debate on if Native advertising is ethical or not, but the fact is major publications are making huge money with native advertising. In native advertising you blend the marketing message for your advertiser in a way, which looks editorial and not an ad. Upworthy is a great example of native advertising. Here is an interesting take by John Oliver on native advertising:

I leave this decision to you for using Native advertisement or not!

Become a freelance expert writer:

If you are blogging on a niche topic you are more likely to earn a lot with freelance writing. If your writing is great and you think you can target wider audience, drop an email to other big blogs in your niche and tell them you looking for a writing job. You will be surprised to know they are always in lookout of good niche writers. You can earn anything from $5-$200 from single blog post writing. If this idea fits your need, you can have a landing page on your blog and have a catchy title like “Hire me” or may be write it as a landing page for potential recruiter.

A good example is Harsh who offers personal blog coaching and earns $200/hour.  You can also start any service or product offer to your blog readers.

Once you develop your identity in your field,you can start writing the paid posts for other blog networks. You can charge handsome amount from the network publishers.

Start Premium Blog

If you are expert in any field and having large amount of readers on your blog, start offering premium content to readers. There are many famous bloggers like Om Malik or Neil Patel, they started premium blogging.They are prominent bloggers and gained good reputation in the blogosphere in their field. People don’t hesitate to pay them membership fees to read their blog posts.

You can integrate membership option on your blog, and on a fixed monthly subscription charge, you can earn from it. Though, you have to come up with premium content which you can easily outsource or create yourself.

Start Consulting

Self-experience is the best thing and depending upon your niche, you can start your own consulting program. For example, if you are into Finance niche, you can offer personal finance audit, coaching and similar stuff.

If you are master in any topic,you can start  consultation services on your blog. Many bloggers are already doing good with various services they are good with. I am impressed with what Harsh is doing here, because he is selling his one of the best services BlogSpot to WordPress on his various blogs.If you checked his monthly income reports, you can see the earnings of his service Blogger to wordpress.

    While doing sponsored reviews we must be honest with our readers. Most bloggers don’t disclose that they have done a paid review. This is cheating.

    • Surender Sharma says

      You are absolutely correct about reviews posts but there is no need to disclose anything about blog post or review post.If yo reviewed any product or services genuinely then nobody will bother about the post whether it’s paid review post or not.

  8. Basant Singh says

    I was not aware of ‘blog networks’ & ‘premium blogs’. You’ve covered everything. A must read for bloggers aspiring to be a pro.

    • NpXp says

      Premium blog concepts work well when you blog something which is very rare on the web or something which is not easily available.

      Works well for a recognized and old blog but not for a start up in many cases. Popularize your current blog, make it in-demand on the web and then start of the premium membership concept.
