2. Blogging

Building a blog that provides valuable information is a good way to make money online. It requires patience, persistence and discipline. It may mean writing everyday for over a year before you really start to see any money from it.

You can make money without a lot of traffic, but in most cases you will need a large regular audience to make money.

The most common ways that blogs make money is through advertising. You can sell advertising spots directly on your site or you can sign up with Google AdSense. You won’t see a lot of money from ads until your views reach into the thousands per day.

Affiliate networks are another common way that bloggers make money. You put a link or a banner from the affiliate network on your blog and then you get a percentage of the money from a sale when someone clicks through and buys the product or service.

A paid membership area on your blog is another way that blogs make money. This is unique content that you can only access in the membership area. You will have to create something that can’t easily be accessed on other websites.

Products and services that you have created and sell on your blog are the most profitable way to make money from your blog.  These products can include ebooks, t-shirts, videos, and training courses.
