#1. Affiliate Marketing 



What is Affiliate Marketing?

In Simple word Affiliate Marketing means promoting products or services of any company or websites through your affiliate link then you will get a specific percentage of profit on each sale you make through your link. More sales more profits 

People are making millions of dollars through this business. And I don't want you to miss out this opportunity 

OK! But how to start?

There are many Affiliate platforms our there but it depends on your skill that you are a beginner or an intermediate, etc

But don't get worried about it and just click the link to know which one is best for you along with his pros and cons

The best platform to start Affiliate Marketing 

 The best part of Affiliate Marketing is that you can earn money without Investing any penny or even blog is not mandatory but having a blog is more profitable as compared to other sources.

And you can earn money irrespective of which blogging platform you are using whether it could in WordPress paid version or in Blogger, Wix, etc which is free to use

BUT, 
It is not easy as it sounds, it takes a long period to learn it in a practical manner 

This skill only expects time from you.


#2.  Ads


Ads

What are the ads?

Ads  simply mean Advertisement which is displayed on your blog post after getting approval from their official site like Google Adsense, Adsterra, etc

How to make money from it?

An advertiser promote their products or services through advertising posters in your blog post and whenever any of your blog reader clicks on their ads poster you will get paid 

How much you get paid?

Every advertiser paid a different amount for every different ad they show therefore the amount you earn is different or varies 


Types of ad websites


  • Google AdSense
  •  Media.net
  • Adsterra
  • Amazon Native shopping ad
  • Adversal
and many more 
BUT, the most popular one is Google Adsense because it is a google product so people ultimately trust it.

ok let talk about Google Adsense 

How to get a sign in for Google Adsense?

You just need to go to their official landing page and create your Adsense account 

After you have to do some basic procedure and then it is ready to go 

But Adsense may reject you 

why because google find that your blog is not eligible to get Adsense approval 

How to get eligible to get Adsense approval?

  1. You must have 20-30 high-quality blog post 
  2. Create necessary pages like privacy policy, contacts, About us
  3. You have to register your site in google search console or if you bing then bing webmaster
If you are a beginner then this may sound you like a bit confusing but if start blogging then you will be able to know it 

It's just the basic and it is not necessary to write 20-30 blog post, some people get approval in just 5 posts and get in 50 it totally depends on their niche and I gave you an approx numbers 


#3. Sponsorship Blogging

Sponsorship Blogging

What is meant by Sponsorship blogging? 

Sponsorship blogging means writing a post about any company's product or services in short promotion but it is not like Affiliate Marketing because in Affiliate marketing you get paid only for sales you make but in Sponsorship blog, you get paid just to write a blog post about their product or services.

The Company wants to introduce their product or services to your audiences.

There are different types of sponsorship blog such as review produce or services, promoting websites, or any digital product, etc


Example of Sponsorship Blogging?

Let's suppose your niche is Electronic Devices  

As if you are a beginner you have to contact a company who is ready to allow you to write a sponsorship blog on their product or services 

And if you are at an Intermediate level then companies will contact you because you already have a group of knowledge 

Ok, finally if the company allowed you to write a blog, then they will give you a product to promote let's assume it as an Earphone 

earphone

 You have to review that earphone in detailed like about its features and what all things makes this earphone special, etc, along with its image so that people get attracted toward it and end up getting buying that product 


How to start a sponsorship blog as a beginner?

  • Start a sponsorship page 
  • Write good quality content so that it attracts sponsors
  • Find a company or brand you want to work with 
  • Find your competitor's sponsors and contact them 

One thing you should remember before working with anyone 

choose a product which is good for your audience anyhow if the product or company went spammy 
then it will also turn off your real audience and your goodwill, so keep this in mind before working with someone.

#4. Sell Ebooks
