4 Ways to Earn Money Through Your Blog that Won’t Work

Are you looking to earn money through your blog? Internet is considered as one of the best ways to make money. It’s easy and don’t require much effort. There are plenty of ways through which you can easily make thousands of dollars each month. All you need is an internet connection and a small amount of time. Many people are earning more than their 9-5 job income by just using internet. And this is too easy and can be done by anyone, even you.

Earn Money Through Your Blog

Whatever I said, is that true? No. Whatever you read in the above paragraph is a lie, at least 90% of it. But hey, all of these lines always work for you. You do believe that the people who claim that they can help you earn a big amount of money are actually saying the truth. Don’t you?

I agree, people do manage to make a large lot of money but there are a few hidden things which aren’t reveled to you while offering you a particular scheme for earning money on the internet. If you have recently started a blog or a website and you’re looking for monetization options, read the ones which aren’t going to work before reading the ones which would work.

1. Freebies : If you own a blog, you are presented with lots of options to choose your earning method. One of such methods I came across was freebies. You would be given free products for reviewing. All you need to do is use the product and write a review.

You get the product for FREE. This might work but rarely in India. Moreover, if you have just started your blog, this is certainly not going to work.

2. Affiliate Marketing: Through Affiliate Marketing, you would need to sell the product of the company for which you work as an affiliate. You would need to place the ads on your blog/website and wait for your users to click on the ads and actually buy the product.

How many times did you do that in your real life? How many ads did you even click on a website since the time you started using internet? How many times did you actually buy the product you saw in the ad?

You know the answer! If you have recently started your blog/website, the chances of earning money through affiliate marketing are almost null. Only an expert affiliate is good enough to earn money. As a fresher, forget it!

3. Google Adsense: This is the best and fool proof way to earn money through your blog/website. Thousands of people talk about how awesome it is but no one would tell you the real truths about it.

If you reside in India, there is no chance that your blog would be approved for google adsense before 6 months. Even if you get approved, you need a large amount of traffic to earn significant amount of money. One wrong click and your account would be banned. How easy it is! Isn’t it?

4. Sell your Own Product: I seriously get amazed by the dumbness of people who suggest such a thing to a fresh blogger. The guy has recently started blogging and how can you even expect him to sell something like an ebook written by him?

If you have recently started blogging and you did manage to come up with something which you could sell on your blog/website, do you think people would trust you so much to give you money for a product which is recently launched?

The only way to earn money through blogging is to become a consistent and dedicated blogger first. Make an identity in the blogsphere first and then think to earn money through your blog.

    • That’s the very point of this article. We often tend to see the positive side and in this case, as I have seen what my friends have experienced, one just puts less efforts into it. Just because people are making millions of dollars on internet doesn’t mean you can too just like that. A huge amount of effort goes into everything. I strongly believe that a person must be told complete truth so that he/she can make a decision on basis of correct analysis. If this isn’t done, your chances of failing increase.

  1. Hello Manpreet,

    These were some of the most ultimate ways for newbies to make money online. I consider affiliate marketing as the best and simplest way to make money online. When I was a newbie I knew nothing about these stuff and when I wasn’t earning I thought to give up blogging.

    Then I met a guy Adithya Shetty from Passiveblogtips.com. The guy guided me with process of using correct affiliate marketing strategy. Now with just 3-4 months of blogging experience I manage to 5 digit figure from affiliate marketing every month.

    You are wrong that affiliate marketing is not good for freshers. As per my experience I consider Adsense as the crap money making method for freshers. Until you’re not getting 2-3K pageviews daily..You would’nt be able to make a lucrative income out of it. I am using Adsense on my blog and I get just few cents for a click. Is it sufficient?

    But.. if your on-page SEO is strong then you’ll be ranking high and making a good figure from affiliate marketing.

    BTW thanks for these ultimate ways to monetize our blog.

    Good write-up 🙂

    Have a nice week ahead Manpreet 🙂

  2. from above suggestion google adsense is very good but we have to fulfill all conditions of google..
    i like this post it’s very nice

    • Exactly Naveen, Google Adsense is very good but to get that on your site, you’ve to fulfill ALL conditions of Google which is very difficult, especially if you’re a newbie in blogosphere

  3. Great to see such a nice post. Well its my first visit here at finixpost but its really great to see such a good writing style owner here.

    I will surely gonna follow in 2014. What i think is your passion should be greater than earning money.

    Blogging is all about writing and building network. Interaction i mean ;). What i found great is you kept your post so simple clean and good.

    Keep up regards

    • I am glad that you liked my work. It really made my day. Thank you. 🙂
      And I strongly support your point – Passion should be more important. This is applicable to all spheres of our life. You can never earn money by doing any work unless you’re passionate enough about it.
      I hope you would visit this blog again and again and find good enough content to read. 🙂
      Happy New Year !

    • Oh sure! But I guess that would take some time for I never share the things which I haven’t tried myself or about which I am not sure.
      But I am already working to discover which ways actually work. 🙂
