There are a lot of ways to make money from your blog and I will be sharing some tips to start generating the money you wanted.

There are a lot of ways to actually make money from your blog, but I will be sharing with you the top three you can start implementing on your blog or if you are just about to start your own blog.

Display Ads: This is the first and the easiest way to start generating money from your blog.

By displaying some ads on your blog, you could be making over N300K per month depending on your daily traffic or the niche you are in.

Take note, if you really want to make money from blogging, don’t start entertainment sites, or let me say don’t start sites that don’t solve a problem.

Money is made where the problem is been solved. If you write about something people are finding a solution for, it will be very hard to make money.

You should stop comparing yourself with Linda Ikeji, those people make most of their money from big companies like MTN, AIRTEL, or some politicians during elections.

There are a lot of display ads we have; Google Adsense,, Propellerads, Infolinks, etc.

Affiliate Marketing: This is the second-best way to start making money from your blog by promoting some legit products either from expertnaire (a Nigerian affiliate company). You can actually join expertnaire to promote their products on your blog. I think the best way to promoting any product is by using the product itself. It will be easier for you to sell because you know you are selling a solution to your audience to either make their lives better or happier. Either way, you are making your money

Selling your own Products: Of course, if you are an expert or you know what you are sharing very well, you can actually start selling your knowledge to your audience. It is easier this way to make a lot of money I short period of time because these people already trust you.

If you follow these three ways, you sure to be generating thousands of naira from your blog.

If you have any questions, you are free to share.
