How to Get Paid with a Blog

So you want to know how to get paid with a blog, well you are in luck because today I will step you through setting up a blog website and show you how to monetize your site.

There are a few ways that I can show you How to Get Paid with a Blog, for example, you can sell your own products, or you can even make money selling ads on your blog. But what I believe to be the best way is Affiliate marketing, through affiliate sales that is How to Get Paid with a Blog.

Like I have said there are other ways. Still, affiliate marketing on your blog site is one of the easiest and best ways to get started because you can target any niche whatever your interests are you will find affiliate products to sell, there are 1000s.

Why a Blog

A blog is just a Web Log, a website with many short articles or posts usually around 1000 words about a particular niche market.

A few things that you should understand about niches are:

(1) You are going to be writing content within your niche
(2) You are going to be communicating within your niche
(3) You are going to be choosing products to promote within your niche
(4) You are going to get to help people within your niche.
(5) Your first niche PROBABLY won’t be your last (so don’t worry about it being perfect)
(6) Any SINGLE niche website can become a “full time” income/business

There is NO SUCH THING as choosing the wrong niche.

  • I have not even talked about the money – How To Get Paid with a Blog – because this bit comes last, you have to get visitors to your website first. You can have the best-looking website in the world, but if you are not getting the traffic to your site, you will NOT sell anything.

    1. Good on ya I love making money remotely, as I sit here typing I can look out my front door and see Kangaroos eating my grass, how cool is that while MMO

  2. Hey Oz Dave 

    You ask for comments on the topic and I think its fantastic! Obviously I would as that is the reason that I joined Wealthy Affiliate!

    I really enjoyed reading through your post. You have made your blog easy to understand and to grasp what it is you are trying to get across.  For me I found it highly motivating as you are explaining the reasons that I started down this avenue in the first place.

    I am really convinced that people looking for a passive income will definitely find inspiration and tips from you and that will convert to lovely, juicy clicks and traffic!

    You are really doing a great job. Well done and I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    best wishes


  3. Great article! I’ve been searching for a way to make a side income (or hopefully, full-time income) by working online. I heard people can make money with blogs (I’m not really into social media celebrities), so I learn a lot from your article. How long for the typical person to achieve a full-time income by blogging? I’m curious. Thanks

    1. It really does depend on a lot of variables like, what niche you choose, how good are your writing skills, your current skill levels, how quick you learn etc…

      Not trying to put you off but the reality would be anywhere from 12 months on to make a good full-time income.

      The key is to not stop, most people just give up after a few months, if you STOP you are Guaranteed to Fail! If you follow the training and be consistent writing content the money will come, it is really totally up to you how long that takes.

      Go on ya for having a go Mate!

  5. Great post Oz,

    Creating a website today is so much easier than 15 years back, I remember how difficult it was to create a website that people are willing to pay thousands for a web developer to create a custom one. Today, one can create a website in less thana minute and with great courses like Wealthy Affiliate to take advantage of, there’s no excuse to success 🙂

    1. You are right Riaz there really are no excuses with the help of WA.

      When things are not going right, or you feel like giving up, remind yourself if you STOP, you are guaranteed to fail.

      OZ Dave
