15 Ways to Make Money Blogging (Amazon eBook)

Since I know none of you give a rat’s fanny about making money through your blog I just wrote this eBook for the fun of it.

 

Believe it or not, nobody has ever asked me “how to make money blogging?” Even though I have been online for almost a decade.

 

As an afterthought, I wrote this eBook and done placed it on Amazon:

 

15 Ways to Make Money Blogging (Amazon eBook)

 

I wrote this sucker to show you different ways to make that scrilla through your blog. Even though you detached, present-minded, worldly-life-shunning Buddhist monks could care less.

 

The Pleasure Point

 

Of course I have been asked “how to make money blogging” 50,437 times during my online career (I keep a running tally).

 

I have seen this question asked on forums, social media, blogs and Q and A sites roughly 34,043,972 times.

 

That is a conservative estimate.

 

This eBook is more about showing you practical ways to make money blogging if you feel a bit confused, lost or flat out intimidated about this whole blog monetizing thing.

 

Because I have been there. Really. Because I was once in the “ad revenue is the only way to make money blogging” camp way back when I began blogging, when cavemen ruled the world and Saber-toothed tigers were as plentiful as shitty reality TV shows.

 

The main pleasure point of buying, reading and putting the tips in this eBook into practice is feeling the:

 

  • joy
  • freedom
  • fun
  • clarity
  • peace
  • happiness

 

of making money through your blog by opening proven, helpful, prospering income streams.

 

It feels good to cut through the confusion of “But can I *actually make money* through this blogging thingee?” by uncovering, learning, practicing and profiting through blogging income streams.

 

 

So yeah; if you want to feel the delicious pleasure of discovering, practicing and working these income streams to render useful service to readers, this eBook is for you.

 

What This eBook Is NOT

 

This eBook is not a “Hey just write and sell eBooks on Amazon to make money!” type eBook.

 

If I told a newbie or struggling blogger: “Google Adsense is a great way to make good money blogging.”

 

it’d be like me saying: “Cleaning toilets at Long John Silvers after “Big Catch” Special Night is a sanitary, hygienic job.”

 

Either metaphorically or literally, you’re gonna be up to your knees in Arkansas Steamers if you believe either one of those statements.

 

You make money blogging by:

 

  • developing specific skills through years of diligent, persistent practice
  • solving a specific problem for your readers
  • inspiring readers to live their dreams
  • building your friend network by generously promoting fellow bloggers from your niche

 

Money responds to your energy. Not to income channels. Because no blogging income channel ever made money. Because blogging income streams are inanimate objects. Β Tools.

 

The tool users (aka you, the blogger) develop the skills to make money through the channels.

 

This is a “income channels” eBook. I am showing you different ideas so you can choose which streams/channels resonate with you.

 

Don’t get it twisted; the channels ain’t gonna make a cent for you. Your devotion to your craft and willingness to generously build your friend network are the ultimate money makers. These streams are simply channels through which you receive money.

The Cover Story

 

In perhaps my most inspired cover yet I snapped the cover image while we flew over an erupting Mount Raung in Java, Indonesia.

 

We had just taken off from nearby Bali 10 minutes prior to enjoying this jaw-dropping scene.

 

This eruption diverted hundreds of flights but we were aligned with the stars; the airport opened and we were off to the States.

  6. It helps to keep those sweet choices flowing Munna. Gracias.

  7. Munna Says:

    Great article!
    I am familiar with the choices that you have given to your readers. Some may mistakenly assume that blogging is all about writing articles which is not true. There are many ways that you can increase your earning if you improve your skills over the time and become expert in a certain field. You will get so much offers from so much companies but you should let others know about your expertise.

  8. Thanks much Andrew. Do enjoy it.

  9. Haha May yes I was joking a little bit on that one πŸ˜‰

  10. Congrat Ryan, you win again, make me enjoy this book even without reading

  11. Hi Ryan,
    No one has asked you how to make money from blogging! Yikes I’m shocked because that is where I started from years back and probably why I never gave it up lol.

  12. It’s gonna be tough Jimmy.

    2 suggestions:

    1: buy your domain and hosting.
    2: buy the eBook; it is a helpful read for opening income streams

  13. Jimmy Sharma Says:

    Iam running a free website. How can i earn online through my website ?
    Please suggest.

  14. Great comment Drewery! Freelancing is one of your sweet spots so keep running with it.

  15. DNN Says:

    hmmm… I never thought about selling e-books on Amazon Kindle and don’t have a clue about what I should write and sell on Amazon.com, so I’m going to skip that Amazon Kindle eBook selling. I have no clue about how to make an audiobook and sell it on Audible.com, so I’m going to skip that one too. Paperbacks on CreateSpace.com sounds okay but I’m stuck on stupid when it comes to that. LOL. πŸ™‚

    Freelance writing is one of my specialties and that’s what I love to do. I love to get online and flat my gums like that happy former New Yorker, as all I have to do is put on a headset and activate my Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition program and let my lips do the flapping as my voice turns into words on the computer screen. I’ve never thought of blog coaching as I am going to skip that one too.

    Affiliate marketing is here to stay and I think I’m going to stick with that. It took a good bit of time before started making money from affiliate programs and still struggle somewhat today. I’ve stepped up my content marketing efforts and relationships with fellow bloggers like yourself, Ryan. πŸ™‚

    So hopefully in the near future, I can look forward to earning more money from promoting affiliate programs on my website. Sponsored posts are always good as that is an easy source of revenue. Pay per click is good only when you have the money that won’t affect your net profits. In other words, it’s good to do PPC advertising with either play money or money that won’t affect your ability to pay your bills if you mess up in your paid online advertising efforts. I personally don’t have time for social media coaching so that’s one avenue I won’t be making money from. Online courses are lucrative business but again that’s not my niche. Network marketing, better known as MLM, I’m totally against. I am not sitting anywhere cold calling people nor followed up with people to see if they’re doing their part. People get lazy and I don’t want to have to rely on anyone to see if they’re doing the work wondering if I’m ever going to get paid. So I am against multi-level marketing. Life coaching is good but I can’t tell anyone what to do nor how to improve their life because I have issues in my life. Eight podcasts are good. Then again, paid podcasts are excellent. I’ve never thought of that but I may look into it in the near future. Lastly, part of number 15 pertaining to sell and audio products is the same as number two. It would be nice to sell video but I haven’t graduated to that yet.

    You give a lot to think about Ryan which is why I’m glad you’re around in the blogosphere. Keep up the good work on your blog posts and keep them coming every day! πŸ™‚

  16. Amelia glad you enjoyed the read. So happy you are on the right path too.

  18. I have bought a few of those products and eBooks too Susan. Maddening when I was new because I got excited then found the stuff was not delivering on the promises. These 15 income streams are just that; channels through which we receive money. The money-making primarily happens when we create, connect and serve. You too πŸ™‚

  19. Awesome Zaman πŸ˜‰ Thanks a bunch bro and keep up the good work and hey, enjoy the eBook.

  20. Susan Velez Says:

    Hi Ryan,

    Another Ebook, wow how many does that make? It definitely sounds like another book that is going to help bloggers monetize their blogs.

    We all know that there are tons of different ways to make money with a blog. It’s nice when a pro blogger like you lays it out for us and shows us what we can do to monetize our blog.

    Glad to hear that your book tells the truth about what it takes to make money online. I’ve purchased those types of products in the past that claim how to make money overnight.

    It’s refreshing when bloggers tell us the truth about monetizing our blog and what it takes to really make money.

    Have a great day πŸ™‚

    Susan

    You’ve settled yourself as a commenting icon who knows how to connect people. I’m really learning a lot of valuable things from you and surely, your book will help me to go the extra mile for my blog.

    SM

  22. Thanks Pedro! I’d love to meet up when I visit the UK. I do have to visit my web developer/designer/guru in Birmingham so when I make it we gotta meet up.
