Blogging can most certainly be profitable, but it does require a lot of hard work, commitment and the right mindset.  There are many fantastic bloggers out there making a great living for themselves and their families.  I follow a lot of them and they inspire me so much.


If you want to start making money from your blog I want to share with you some of the different ways to monetize it.  There are a lot of ways to go about this but I will share the ones that will get your started right away.  Not every way to make money maybe a perfect fit for you but try it out and see how you get on.

There are different types of sponsored posts.  Ones where you are given the content and you add the post to your site or where you work more in collaboration and write the post yourself.  It can be exciting working with companies if the fit is right for your readers.  Whether you are promoting a product or service via a post, on Youtube or an Instagram story.  Just make sure you are happy with the fit and the work involved.


You could also sign up to the likes of Get Blogged, which is a site where you can apply for blog posts.  Remember though make sure it is a good fit and you are happy with the price you will be paid for the post.





One of the most quickest and effective ways of making money from your blog right now is work with your current content.  You can start by adding affiliate links to each post be that within the text or add in options for your readers to purchase items you are writing about.


Remember to join SkimLinks so that you can have access to over 20,000 affiliate links to companies, making it easier to add affiliate links to your content.




As a blogger it can be easy to underestimate the value of your posts.  It is also easy to forget that sponsored posts can be in the form of both cash or gifts.


There are many businesses out there that are trying to grow their customer base and often reach out to bloggers as a way of doing this.  You don’t have to wait for them to contact you though, be proactive.


I recommend you start with companies whose products you already use, contact the marketing department and offer to write a sponsored blog post.  Do not though email every company under the sun – be genuine about your love of the product and detail why their product or service would be a good fit for your blog.


Personally I believe bloggers offer fantastic opportunities to businesses in promoting their products so don’t sell yourself short!

If you have been blogging for a while, the chances are you have enough fantastic content to pull together in to an E-book to sell.  You really don’t need to reinvent the wheel, look through your content and start planning what kind of E-book you think your readers would love.


You can sell directly from your blog or you can upload to Amazon to sell, either way marketing will be key to getting your readers to purchase it.


If you don’t have enough content at the moment, plan ahead and start thinking about your options for an E-book, that way when the time is right to pull everything together you will have a plan in place.

Many bloggers currently offer sponsored advertising on their blog.  If you are a new blogger consider offering advertising space by promotion through your social media channels.  However, if you already do offer adverting space you really should consider raising your prices.


It is extremely helpful that other bloggers are willing to feature small businesses with an advert for £10-£20 for the year but if a company is willing to pay £10-£20 chances are they are willing to pay £20-£40 for the full year.


This simple technique could double your ad revenue overnight and you would still be offering a fantastic deal.  Another option is to sign up to the likes of Media.Net where you can insert adverts in your posts.  They are currently offering a great deal of 10% more of ad revenue for signing up.


Sign up to Media.net here for a great deal.




It can take hard work and dedication to make money from blogging, it also requires you to build up traffic, increase page views as well as blogger outreach and networking.  These are fantastic skills you acquire which can be used to become a virtual assistant to help other new or established bloggers.


Why not register with People Per Hour now to put those fantastic skills you have acquired to use in order to make some extra money.

When I started my first job, that was the time when blogging didn’t exist and indeed if you wanted to earn extra cash you had to take up going door to door selling Avon.  While that might work for some there are many other ways to earn extra cash these days.  The internet has expanded the opportunities on offer.  The following side hustles are designed to help you make some extra cash and as if that wasn’t enough you can do these jobs from home too!



Side Hustle

Blogging is a great way to start earning extra cash from sponsored posts to free items to review.  Head over to my blog post on 5 Easy Steps to Set up a Blog to find out how you can get set up very quickly.


Online Surveys

Another side hustle to make extra money is online surveys.  I have spoken at length before about a fantastic survey site Prolific Academic, survey sites are a great way of making extra money and vouchers, you would be surprised at how easy and quickly you can earn by just answering a few questions.  You could earn as much as £5 for completing questions which could take up to 30 minutes of your time.  It is easy to do in your lunch break!


Survey sites do differ in what they offer in terms of number of questions, time you need to take, types of questions you are asked to complete and the amount of money you are paid.  Below I have listed a further two survey sites which I recommend as a way of making extra cash…


Reward TV UK

RewardTV has been around for approximately 10 years.  You sign up and answer questions about your viewing habits and other likes and dislikes in relation to TV programmes.  It’s a very easy to register and start earning.  Basically you watch TV as you normally do, you then login to their website and answer questions about what you watched.  Answering questions allows you to accumulate points which you save up and then get to spend.


Why not register today and see how much you can accumulate?



This is a great site, where you get to help influence tomorrow’s products!  You complete surveys from the comfort and convenience and get paid for sharing your thoughts.  Membership is totally free and only takes a few minutes to sign up.  Pinecone is very generous in terms of payment – you can earn up to £3 per survey so really worth signing up to now!


Why not register here and start earning now?

The Easy Side Hustle you can do from home


Sell on Etsy

Etsy is another great side hustle to make money especially if you are arty and like making crafts.  You could sell these on Etsy as it’s the place for unique, different and handmade products.  I have an Etsy shop myself selling my handmade upcycled jewellery and makes.


Sell your unwanted items

Another great side hustle to make extra cash is to sell your unwanted items on Gumtree or Ebay.  I am forever clearing out and downsizing so it makes sense to sell what I’m no longer using to get some cash back.


Become A Virtual Assistant
