5 Ways To Earn From Blogging Without Waiting For Adsense

5 Ways To Earn From Blogging Without Waiting For Adsense

This is a guest post compiled by +Agunbiade Damilol  for OgbongeBlog



It baffles my mind when everyone wants to go into blogging due to the fact that they get the information that some bloggers are making hundreds of thousands through blogging. And to make the matters worse, there is this wide notion you have to get Adsense to make money in blogging.


Yes, Adsense is good, but I consider it a lazy man's way to earn in blogging. But let's even not forget that the fact you have Adsense does not mean that you will earn. In fact I have come across bloggers that got frustrated and quit blogging after they got Adsense just because the expected funds were not coming in.


Adsense is not for newbies, I must tell you. It's for bloggers that have arrived and have the funds and technicality to promote their blogs. Before you can earn tangible income through Adsense, your traffic must be in tens of thousands, nothing less. So will you tell me how you want to achieve that as a newbie? Not even in this era of copy and paste and everyone going into same niche, which is Entertainment.


So as a newbie, I want to break your heart a little bit. You can't break-even with Adsense until you grow in your blogging career for like a minimum of 1 year. Don't get me wrong as well, not that achieving high is not feasible. What am saying is that you just have to be financially buoyant or better still be an SEO Expert. But when you don't have these at your disposals, then you have to wait further.


But don't you think you are going to be wasting your time when you have to wait for such a long period before you begin to make tangible income with your blog. Have you ever thought of alternative ways to make money with your blog? It's so unfortunate that Nigerian bloggers' minds are so conditioned to Adsense, when there are various ways you can make money as a blogger.


I will be highlighting those other highly feasible ways you can make money as a blogger :


1. BLOG TRAINING.

You are a blogger and you are complaining that you are not making money with your blog, why?  Are you a talent waster?  If you don't want to be wasting your talent. Now is the time for you to begin to package something good and organize training for others.

You don't need much to do this. You can start with Internet Cafes around you, even at your Church. One-on-ONe training won't be bad for a start. All you need is to ensure you have the right information about what you are going to be training others.


2. BLOG ADMINISTRATION.

You can also begin to seek out other bloggers that are not so opportuned to update their blogs and offer to help them with this. This aspect of blogging has a lot of earning potential. I must tell you that you can be making nothing less than N100,000 on this monthly. Take for instance, you have 10 blogs you are working with and you charge them N10,000 each,  even if it's N5000. Now see how great the returns are for a 4-hour job.


Through my advent in blogging, this has been my peak earning point. I don't consider myself a professional, but am neither a newbie. I was able to hit a top job with an Italian Information Marketer after much effort I input into developing myself. This guy pays me $50 weekly and guess what, I only make a 1 post daily. My other admin work is with a Nigerian top blog and am paid N20,000 monthly, and then some other smaller blogs I work with. You can achieve better.


3. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING

You are on Facebook and you are not making money. That should stop today. As a blogger, you should stand out from Mz SexyDiva that posts on Facebook for free. Do you know there are about 800 million Facebook groups on the internet. You can offer to help organizations blast their links on social media. But you have to be careful to follow the rules and regulations of a certain group as not every group tolerates that.


But besides Facebook, you can as well utilize Google+, twitter, instagram, reddit, stumbleupon, bbm, whatsapp and so on.


4. SALES OF EBOOK/ONLINE COURSES

Do you even realize your knowledge of blogging is worth millions on its own?. You need to begin to see beyond the surface and open your mind to the fact that people lack this knowledge you have and will be willing to pay you massively for your information.

You already know how to maneuver your way in creating a blog, why not put that to writing. You can write about blog creation, blog marketing, social media marketing, link posting and so on. Just think of something you are good at and create a unique item.

You can even package it as a video course. There are many people making money selling courses on sites like Udemy.com. You can as well sell your DVD on sites like Konga, Jumia. There are various platforms out there through which you can sell your products.



5. PAID ADVERTS.

 Do you know apart from Adsense, you can make a lot of money from paid adverts on your blog. All you need to do is to strategically promote your blog to the right set of people. You can then use this as a leverage to convince organizations and business owners to advertise on your blog.

You can contact me (wenogetjob@gmail.com) for my free ebook on how to get paid adverts for your blog.

My dear, don't wait for Adsense, Start earning today!

See you at the top.

Any addition or subtraction?
