Can You Make Money From Blogging?

Can You Make Money From Blogging?

That’s the million dollar question everyone asks, including Mary from Colorado who emailed me recently asking for advice on her blog.

Like many of the people who come to my blogging workshops. Mary was ready to cut to the chase.

Mary had been blogging for six months and now, finally, she was ready to start making money from her blog.

“How can I make money from blogging?” Mary asked, then told me what she’d been doing so far.

To get things started Mary had added some advertisements on her blog and was pushing some affiliate products. Now, finding those things weren’t working, and wondering what else she could do to make a buck from blogging she’d contacted me for advice.

So I had a look at Mary’s blog.

“Woah!” I thought.

“Hold your horses, Mary. It seems like you’re missing something here. Before you can make money from blogging you need to get a firm grasp on the basics of blogging.”

But Mary wasn’t hiring me for a blogging consultation yet or I’d have been able to spent more time offering her detailed solutions. But instead I gave her two simple solutions to help her make money from blogging:

1. Get a decent blog design

Mary’s blog looked as if it had been thrown together by a three year old and that doesn’t inspire confidence.

She’s not alone. I still see a lot of people who are in pain because no one is reading their blog and they can’t work out why. And of course, how can you make money from blogging if no one is visiting or reading your blog?

The answer is, you can’t and, if that’s the case for you, usually bad blog design is the culprit.

You may be a new blogger, or new to your field, but your blog doesn’t need to advertise that to the world. Your blog should present you as the established professional you want to be.

Sometimes bloggers have a reasonable design that just needs tightening up and improving to make it more user-friendly and easy to read. But there was nothing to work with on Mary’s blog. No logo. No branding. No clear message.

If she wanted to make money from blogging Mary would need to invest in a decent blog design.

2. Read my blogging book and action the 12 steps to successful blogging

In case Mary was on a tight budget, or not ready to invest in professional blog design yet, I recommended she buy my blogging ebook. That way she could learn how to get her own blog design up to scratch, or engage a cheaper web designer but give them a clear blueprint on how her blog should look and work.

You may expect web designers to know the principles of good web or blog design but many don’t. It’s an unregulated profession and there are many web designers who are more interested in making some fast money for themselves than in delivering a sustainable, cost effective and long term marketing solution to their clients. That’s why you still see so many bad websites and blogs.

So my blogging book will teach Mary how, even if she can’t afford a professional web or blog designer, she can still set up a decent blog which makes her look as good as she is.

A professional blog design should make you look better than you are, but at least you want to look as good as you are and not have a blog which makes you look downright bad. It really breaks my heart when I see good people who have bad blogs because I know it makes them look bad too.

Successful Blogging in 12 Simple Steps explains the principles of good web design and screen legibility which I learnt 15 years ago when I was doing my MA in Design for Interactive Media. That knowledge isn’t rocket science, but it is essential if you want people to read your blog, subscribe to it and tell their friends about it.

Because only then can you start to make money from blogging.

So Can You Make Money From Blogging?

You’re probably feeling a bit ripped off because I haven’t tacked the million dollar question yet. How can bloggers make money from our blogs?

I think Mary had been ripped off too because she told me not only could she not afford my professional blog design services, she also couldn’t afford my book because she’s spent all her money on an e-course called Instant Internet Riches Through Blogging.

I’ve got to tell you here that I’ve changed the names to protect the innocent (mainly me and Mary) but that’s the name of the course and it was one of those with an exceedingly long sales page peppered with irritating animated arrows and enticements to click here.

If you still weren’t convinced if also promised to offer (in the form of endless bonus products) $2,500 worth of value for only $200.

Is it just me or is that impossible? Yes, you can get good deals on good products in sales but I’ve never seen any classic item reduced by over 90%. Even in factory outlet stores where designer goods are heavily reduced it’s only because they’re long out of fashion, or they were badly designed and don’t fit anyone.

But I digress.

You can make money from blogging but only long term. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there’s no such thing as instant success.

Hopefully after six to twelve months you may be able to start making money from blogging.

How You Can Make Money From Blogging

So you have a good blog design, some great content and engaged readers? Excellent! Then you’re ready to make money from blogging and these are some ways you can do so:

1. By using your blog as a marketing tool for your existing (or new) business services and products.

I sell my web design, blog design, consultation and copywriting services indirectly through my blog. I don’t give them the hard sell but I have found new clients through my blog. Or rather they’ve found me.

I believe this is the most  accessible way for people to make money from blogging and that’s why the focus of my blogging advice is to help business owners and writers market their services or products. It’s the most realistic way to make money from blogging, although you might not be able to track your income directly unless people buy direct from your blog.

2. By selling your own products.

I sell my blogging ebook. Electronic products like ebooks, video courses or podcasts are easy to sell online because there’s no shipping involved, but you can also sell other products like t-shirts.

If you have a good readership and people like your blog you can then create your own products related to your niche and sell them. Most blog readers are happy to pay for quality products.

This can bring in an additional income stream and in time, as your blog grows you can choose to focus more on that if you wish.

3. By becoming an affiliate reseller for quality products.

I recommend a handful of products I believe in and know might help my readers such as the Thesis WordPress theme. Make sure you stick to related products you really recommend. Readers first, money comes second.

Again this is an additional income stream for me, not a primary source of income. I like working with people. My core business is web marketing, not retail and I want to keep it that way.

4. Advertising

I’m experimenting with this at the moment. It’s not my first choice because I prefer to keep my blogs looking clean and attractive but it’s definitely something I need to look into.

5. Diversify your blogging income

Diversification is the key to success with any financial investments. By diversifying you cut the risk and can track what works and what doesn’t. Professional bloggers all diversify their blog income by using all of the methods above (and often others too such as membership sites) to make money from blogging. You should too.

Are You Just in Blogging to Make Money?

I’m no clairvoyant but if that’s the case your blog will fail.

By trying to make money from blogging too soon Mary was killing her blog and losing her readers trust.

You have to blog about something you love, you have to be able to sustain that passion and really feel it to keep blogging long term and build a genuine connection with your readers.

You can make money from blogging but not straight away

But in the meantime, until you start to make money from blogging you can enjoy these other benefits blogging has to offer:

  • Networking opportunities.
  • Confidence building.
  • New friendships.
  • Writing practice.
  • Personal growth.
  • Business building.
  • Increased focus.
  • Improved motivation.
  • Opportunity to establish your expertise.

What do you think? Can you make money from blogging? Do you want to? And if so what would be the best way for you to make money from your blog?

Hi Annabel,

I agree totally with your point about reaping the other benefits of blogging, apart from solely looking to make money. It’s really important to build trust and respect with your readers first. That way, you have a strong, receptive foundation of people ready to invest in any product and services you might offer.

I’m on the cusp of developing my first product… I want to get it right so I’m thinking carefully what I could offer that reader would find useful.

Hi Scott, I agree. Making money from blogging isn’t my topic and I don’t intend to focus on it here, I just wanted to cover it since so many people ask me about it!

I recommend a survey to ask your readers what might interest them. I used Google Docs to create one which was very successful and useful. You can read more about how it works here: http://www.successfulblogging.com/blog-survey-tips-blogging-survey-results/

Lynda Mee August 11, 2011 at 8:31 pm

Hi Annabel,
I think you are so right on all points. You can’t leave the starting gate making money and when you are ready to make some money I believe that it has to be authentically made, coming out of what you’re blogging about.

I am just starting out (again!), but I really want to do it right this time. I started a knitting blog, a genealogy blog and a writing blog – all free fortunately – and all of which lasted about a week!

This time I’m taking things slowly and trying to get everything in place before I start posting. Like Mary, I too can’t afford a blog designer, but I have purchased your book and am looking forward to working through it. I really want to get this right. Thanks for what you do Annabel!!

Annabel Candy August 11, 2011 at 8:39 pm

Hi Lynda,

First of all, thank you for buying my book. I really appreciate that:)

What you write about here of starting three different blogs is much what I did in the beginning. I was so excited about blogging I didn’t plan it or set goals. I think when you do you get much better results.

So glad to here you’re taking it more slowly this time round and using the book to help you. I’ll be excited to watch your blog come to life:)

I started my blog with no expectation of making money – I thought only friends and family would actually read it! But I AM passionate about travelling in Australia – and finding a readership that appreciates and responds to that passion has been SO rewarding. It’s been an interesting challenge to set up a blog without spending any money – I’ve successfully resisted so far, but now it’s time to take my blog to the next level. It’s too time consuming to continue without some financial return, so thanx (as always) for the timely advice!!

It might take me a while, but watch this space!!

Annabel,
Great post. At 1 1/2 years in with my blog, I agree that it is a slow process requiring steadfast dedication. I would also add that if you’re not marketing how to make money online you’re not going to grow as fast, nor will you make as much money either. In 2008 I had another blog giving my financial advice as I’m a trained in financial planning but, after 7 months I couldn’t sustain it because I wasn’t excited by the topic. So, even though I am a clairvoyant – I made this big mistake! I came back a year and a half later and started my present blog and find that I am as excited by the topic as I was in the beginning. You really do need to find the topic that’s close to your heart or you will run out of steam for sure.

Hi Annabel,
I’ve got a book coming out in September along with a workbook and guided meditations to go with it. I plan to do an eCourse next, based on the free ebook I’m giving away now – god willing! I may have to get a “real” job again in the meantime to bridge the gap though.

Annabel Candy August 13, 2011 at 11:57 am

Hi Angela, thanks for the update. I still do a lot of work for other people so that makes my blogs grow more slowly. I hope you can get the blogs running and earning you enough income to support you. It sounds like you have a great plan. Let me know what I can do to support you.

Annabel,
I’m not looking to make any money from blogging – yet. Initially, the sole purpose of my blog was to support my soon-to-be-published book, Don’t Hang Up! That was postponed but I kept on blogging. Once I have a product to sell, e.g. my published book, then I will look at ways to do it. In the meantime, as soon as I have the $$$, I want to redesign my blog as I don’t think what I have is right for my current needs.

As for Mary, I wonder how many are taken in by those “Get rich with your blogs” schemes. I get them all the time with shouted examples of how so-and-so is making thousands a day, week, month because he did such-and-such. And You Can Too!!!

Reply

Annabel Candy August 12, 2011 at 9:04 am

Hi Penelope,

If you’ve been blogging a while, have a clear target audience and have built up a good readership you can start looking at ways to make money.

But it sounds as if you had a clear purpose from blogging and know what’s holding you back.

Did you see the blog design case stufy I did with author Seana Smith? http://www.successfulblogging.com/blog-design-author/

It would be interesting to check back with her in 6-12 months and see how book sales are going compared to before.

As for those who get sucked into the get rich with blogging. Hopefully their numbers are dwindling….

I always feel a bit annoyed that the real sensationalist blog headlines go viral. The truth – that blogging is a lot of work for potential long term gain – is less popular:)

Dave Doolin August 12, 2011 at 4:10 am

I’m gonna go against the flow, just a little bit, but this is actually in agreement and based on personal failure and success experience.

Focusing on making money with blogging can work, work well, and probably work pretty fast, as long as you, the blogger are *ruthlessly* determined to make money.

By ruthless, I mean letting the numbers do the heavy lifting, and follow the market.

By ruthless, I mean letting go all preconceptions of what you are writing about, and perhaps more importantly, who you think you might be.

By ruthless, I mean destroying your own preconceptions, not others.

I don’t mean lying, cheating or stealing. I don’t mean misrepresenting the truth. I don’t mean preying on people’s base emotions.

I do mean finding what people want, and putting _that_ ahead of your own pre(mis?)-conceptions. Your customers are not only your audience, they are your employers.

Every time I have followed this advice it has worked out well for me. I should follow it more often to make more money.

As it stands right now, I’m not blogging simply for money. Building expertise is at the top of my list; being a real expert with real authority, not a relative expert whose authority is based on number of tweets.

Should probably write a blog post about this.

Annabel Candy August 12, 2011 at 9:12 am

Hi Dave,

Sounds like a great post in the making.

I agree with what you say about focusing on the money. It’s what separates me from big business people. I can’t stop focusing on people and tend to forget about the money at all, often not charging for things I should.

It drives my business mentor nuts but he is still trying to push me to being more commercial and I’m slowly getting there. It has to be fun though, otherwise I’m not interested:)

And you’ve nailed the golden rule there – if you do want to make money from blogging you really have to serve your readers, give them what they want and treat them well:)

Kat Eden August 12, 2011 at 7:50 am

Hi Annabel.

I love how bluntly truthful this post is. My blog is now moderately successful and I have a lot of friends in my industry who ask me for advice on blogging, often with some kind of comment about wanting a passive income within the next few months.

I have to tell them it’s just not that easy! I started my blog to practice my writing, not to make money, but fortunately I’ve been able to do both. I will say it was a mistake not to have at least some small form of monetisation from day one, but there’s no point looking back.

Blogging is a long-term thing, and I liken it to a ‘rolling ball that gathers more speed’. As time goes by I’ve been able to learn what does and doesn’t work when it comes to selling stuff through my blog, but there are also loads of money possibilities I’ve yet to explore.

The best way to make money from your blog, in my opinion? Give great content, do it regularly, and have a genuine interest in engaging with readers.

The rest will follow :)

Annabel Candy August 12, 2011 at 9:16 am

Hi Kat,

Great to hear from you and interested to hear you say “it was a mistake not to have at least some small form of monetisation from day one.”

I know some people are very motivated by money and if that’s you then it could be a great way to keep you blogging. For me getting feedback and engagement from readers did that. I guess it still does as I think there’s a lot of untapped potential to make more money from both my blogs. Potential is good though. I like that.

You are so right, we have to get started and see what works and what doesn’t then refine it.

Really looking forward to sharing your guest post here next week about how blogging turned your business around, it’s such a great story!

This is a great post, especially because it lists the more “intangible” benefits of blogging. I’m convinced that as hard as I may be willing to work to attract people to see the few ads on my blog, I have to love the process to stick with it. I do! More people are coming every week as I tinker with my stripped down Twenty Ten site and try crazy stuff (like learning how to back it up, add strange widgets, get a permanent welcome message stuck on my front page. sigh.)

As you know, I make money from my blog and have made that part of my blogging goals for the past 12 months. My readership has grown more than 1000% in 12 months and because of the niche I blog in, brands are wanting a slice of that readership.
I operate like a mini media company, with advertising in a clearly delineated space; and sponsored posts clearly marked and still written in my blog style. In the next 6 months I plan for my my blog advertising and sponsorships to be the major income stream of my business (just putting it out there!).
Australia is on the cusp of what is happening in the US in this field. Exciting times!

Hi Nikki,

Thanks for sharing your story. It’s brilliant. I know you did all the right things before you started monetizing so it’s great to see all that planning and fab writing is paying off.

I love how you treat your blog as a business. I’m working towards that too. I seem to be at a tricky stage right now where I still do web design and copywriting for other people so there is less time to work on my own blog than I’d like. But I’ll get there:)

I agree, we are in the right place at the right time. I’m excited too and it’s wonderful to be sharing the journey with you and the many inspiring bloggers I’ve connected with!

Hi Annabelle,
Thanks for this article. I’ve been blogging for just over a year. A friend and I toss back and forth the idea of adding ads to our blogs but I know how off putting that can be (and cheesy looking) when I see that on other blogs. I don’t want cheesy!! lol Nor do I want my followers to think I see dollar signs when they come to visit. So much to think about.
Probably the best bet is to simply add a link to an etsy shop. (I run a craft blog).
Thanks again, I’m going to check out your book.

Annabel Candy August 13, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Hi Dorcas,

I agree about ads and have only just introduced some on my blogs. I want to control what they are so sell my ads privately. For a craft blog your plan sounds good and you should also mention and promote special deals in your shop to hook people into buying:)

Good luck!

Sonia Marsh/Gutsy Living August 13, 2011 at 9:19 am

Annabel,
I am like most of the others commenting; I believe in the trust issue and I like Pennie, if you have a book coming out, you may not really want to sell other things on your blog, except your own books. If you start selling affiliate programs as an author, then I think your trust/credibility dissipates. Perhaps I’m wrong, but your own book and e-books should come first, especially if it’s a memoir or something not related to a specific non-fiction, “how to” kind of book. What do you think?

Reply

Annabel Candy August 13, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Hi Sonia,

Lol, I hope my trust/credibility hasn’t gone down because I sell affiliate programs. I don’t think so because I am very choosy and don’t promote much. I think that’s key.

The hard sell is just not me anyway but it does work for some bloggers and obviously many readers expect it in return for all the free info/entertainment they’re getting.

I believe you can sell other products. Indeed many readers have thanked me for helping them by mentioning books or courses they’ve bought. Yes, I was surprised by that. Sometimes I was an affiliate other times not.

It makes sense to me that you won’t be able to produce every type of product related to your niche yourself so why not introduce people to those you recommend?

Thanks so much for raising this important issue Sonia:) Love the discussions we have here.

Hello there,
Enjoyed this post Annabel, and the comments too. I must let you know that I am definitely selling more books than I did, absolutely. I don’t charge for postage so that dents the income stream, but I’m delighted to be postin books off more than I did before.

But the benefits of blogging are much wider than that, excellent for making connections and forming friendships

Am wondering what I might do next year when all the kids are at school. Write another book? Or other writing? Or a new blog on one topic which aims to make money?? Not sure!

From what I have seen, many think they can buck the system, go-it-alone, be the maverick and not look at what others are doing to be successful blogging.

There is a definite reason why some bloggers make it big and why others don’t. It’s their approach, their self-promotion and marketing makes their blogs succeed, forms partnerships, relationships etc with others who are of the same mindset.

It’s a formula that works.

It used to really bother me when someone said “I have a friend who has this great product …” and then they went on to “sell” and promote their “friend’s” product / service. Great way to promote an affiliate program or system without coming right out and saying “go buy this because I’m going to make money from it” :)

Now I see nothing wrong with it when done correctly … so come on over and visit …. (just kidding).

Hi Barry,

Really interested to read your feedback. I guess there is an evolution underway between people thinking all internet marketers are spammy, con men and people realizing that internet marketing is not limited to the dark side!

There are plenty of good people who recommend good affiliate products, not just because they stand to gain from them but because their readers do too.

I think readers are also becoming more sophisticated and learning which website, blogs and bloggers they can trust and accepting that product recommendations are the norm but they have no obligation to actually buy unless they want to.

Hopefully the places which instil trust in readers and don’t abuse that will become the most widely read blogs:)

Hi .. I have to say that I agree 100% with your post. I think it is brilliant.

I think that all blogs need to think like businesses whether the rewards they reap are financial or otherwise. I am in the process of relooking and refocusing on my blog. While I am still writing (and now writing more often) my main focus is on researching and planning for the future. For me the rewards are not financial (not that I am closed to the idea and considering it in future plans) but if I am spending time on it, I just want to do it well.

On the whole it can be a fantastic marketing tool for any business and if you have good content in place which gets picked up in the search engines then there is every reason to get new business and make money or get click throughs on any advertising you may be running.

I totally agree with all of this, especially the points about making money in an associated way. I think everyone gets into blogging first because of the joy of being a publisher, and then they think “Hmm, I could make some money doing this,” before realising it’s more difficult than it sounds. The next step is to realise how powerful blogging is in providing spin-offs to what you already know and do well that do make money, and then as long as it’s set up right, good blog design, products etc then I think after that the blog itself starts to earn its keep. I think it takes longer than you say though – for ordinary mortals with no knowledge of blogging/techie stuff when they set out … at least 2 years.

I have to be honest here, I started my blog because I want it to be my source of income. Then 3 months after writing my blog, I found out that it is not like magic to get readers or traffic, so i just settled on the fact that I may or may not get money from it. So right now, I am writing my blog three time a week for the reason of practicing to write and learning photography. I do not give pressure on myself marketing and promoting anymore. I just do it because i love blogging.
