In today’s post, I will tell you about 10 brilliant ways to make money on your WordPress Blog. Most bloggers know about Affiliate Marketing and Google AdSense. There are plenty of articles on the internet already talking about both these services. So I won’t be talking about them.

Let’s look at the other way to earn from your blog.

Make Money From Your WordPress Blog

#1. Sell Sponsored Blog Post

Do you get annoyed with the adds that keep disturbing you when you are reading something online? That’s the exact reason why many readers use ad blockers on their computers.

You don’t want people to stop visiting your site because you are using ads on your site. This does not mean you should stop displaying ads on your site altogether. But you might be looking for an alternative to using ads on your site which will help you earn some money.

Selling sponsored blog post is one way to do that. Basically, a company will pay you for writing about their product and displaying and promoting them to your audience.

However, you should keep in mind that a company will pay for this only if they think that your blog is a quality one and will be able to add value to their product. So before you try going for sponsored blog posts, you should do your best to add value to your blog.

Work on getting more subscribers, followers, traffic etc. When you have enough followers on social media, subscribers, and traffic add a page on your blog to tell people about it. This will work like an added advantage to you.

#2. Publish Paid Reviews

Another brilliant way to make money from your blog is to publish paid reviews of products. This is slightly similar to selling sponsored blog post. The only difference is that apart from getting paid for the review of the product, you also get to use the product for free.

You can review products for companies that belong to the same niche as your blog. If you do not get emails from companies asking you to do the review, you can directly approach them and see if they have a product to be reviewed.

If you feel lost in the contacting the right company, try using platforms like Payperclick to reach out to interested companies.

#3. Sell Your Own Products

The best way to make money from your blog is probably by selling your own products. This can be an online course, or an e-book, a service or anything similar. Selling your own product makes it possible for you to make more money than you would otherwise earn.

This is because you are selling the product or service directly to your client and it does not involve any commission too.

#4. Become A coach

By offering to coach people you can help them by giving them a one-on-one help in the coaching sessions that you organize. This will obviously improve their life and so you can charge people for your services.

Make it look professional by scheduling an appointment earlier. You can use the WordPress plugin to create a form for booking the appointment.

#5. Flipping Websites
