Let’s jump into the 3 ways to monetize your blog on blogger.
3 cool ways to monetize a blog on blogger
When it comes to monetizing a blog on blogger or any other platform you choose to host your blog. There are three main ways to go about it. It all comes down to these three
- Sell your own stuff
- Affiliate marketing
- Display ads
Many other methods found online might either fall under these methods or they might be plain wrong.
How to monetize your blog on blogger by selling your own stuff
This is one of the best ways to monetize your blogger blog. By selling your own stuff, you keep all the profits and at the same time, you have more control over the promotions.
I would advice you sell only services and digital products which are created once and can be sold over and over again.
Here are some examples of digital products you can sell on your blog
- Digital Ebooks
- Video cources etc
If you want to sell your own stuff on your blogger blog. There are several ways to do it effectively.
– Write articles based on what people are searching for
This comes down to understanding the type of person you want to sell to. When you know the category of people you are selling to. You can write articles that would attract them to your blogger blog. Also, by understanding our target audience, you would know the things they search for online.
As an example, supposing I wanted to sell cars. I won’t write articles talking about football. Rather, I would write these type of articles:
- Best cars for men
- Latest cars for rich and handsome men (that’s if it answers the questions below though)
Here are some factors to keep in mind when choosing articles to write
If you really want to attract the right set of people to your blogger blog. Your articles must meet the following requirements. If you can’t answer yes to the following questions, leave the article.
- Does the target keyword have a low competition?
- Is the article related to your product?
- Are people searching for that topic?
If your answer is yes. Then go ahead and write the article. But that’s not all. There’s still one more step to go.
Writing articles related to the product you want to sell is just one part of the puzzle. How are you going to convince your blog visitors to buy your product? There are two ways to do this:
– Use banner ads on your blog
You don’t need a graphics designer to create banner ads on your blog. Just go to canva and you can create beautiful designs on your blog. If your banner is closely related to your blog content many of your visitors would click. You’ll get more sales when your blog content is closely related to the banner.
– Link your article to the product
Banner ads get lower clicks than direct linking from your article. If you want to make even sales, try mentioning your product within the content of your article. A good way to do this is by using the “by the way” statement.
For instance, if I have an eBook about crypto and I’m writing an article about the best crypto traders in the world.
This would definitely be a part of my article:
“So that’s the 3rd best crypto trader in the world. By the way, if you want to learn about crypto trading. This guide reveals the best way to get started. It would teach you the fundamentals of crypto trading.”
or if I’m selling my services, it would be something along the lines of:
“So that’s the 3rd best crypto trader in the world. By the way, if you want to trade crypto but don’t have the time. I can trade it for you, I’m a pro trader with 5000 years experience. Trading with me can never go wrong”
Then I’d link to the payment page of my product (or my services page) where anyone interested would be able to buy it. That’s the first way to monetize your blog on blogger. Continue reading for the second (and one of the best) ways to monetize any site.

Just promote it like it were yours. Write articles that are related to the products you are trying to promote then use the “by the way” formula I showed you earlier to link your article to the affiliate product.
Additionally, if the product you are trying to promote offers banner ads or promotional graphics, you can embed them on your articles. Since your articles would be closely related to the product you are promoting, your visitors would click and buy.
Lastly, follow the super methods outlined here to quickly make affiliate sales. That’s the second way to monetize your blog on blogger. Now to the last but definitely not the least method.
