How I Make Money From Blogging!

I’ve always said that blogging should be seen as a lucrative business opportunity and one that anyone can pursue. I was recently asked by a good friend of mine how do I make money from blogging, keen on starting a blog himself and make some money from it too.

I currently run this blog alongside a few other online businesses as primary income, and a few other blog projects which doesn’t really make any money yet.

So here is how I make money from


I’ve been using Google Adsense since 2004 mainly on my other business websites, but more recently started to use Adsense for this blog too. I use mainly a mix of text and image ads placed within my posts and pages, positioned at the top and bottom which works quite effectively for this blog.


Infolinks is an in-text advertising system offering a unique opportunity to turn the content of your blog or website into revenue. I’ve been using Infolinks on and off on this particular blog, but recently started using it less and less as it proved to be off-putting to a large segment of the readers here at M4M, as well as some unkknown issue that caused the blog to load slowly. I do hope to start using Infolinks again in the not too distant future though.

Banner Ads

I’ve not yet become involved in using BuySellAds to sell advertising space on my blog as I don’t generate enough traffic, but I do publish ads provided by affiliate networks (125 x 125 & 300 x 250) to fill in some of the space and earn a small amount of revenue each month from those ads.

Affiliate Marketing

I’ve pushed my affiliate marketing efforts quite a bit over the last few months with the promotion of various digital products i.e. WordPress themes, Genesis Framework and a couple of tried and tested Clickbank products which is great fun and rewarding at the same time. This is by far my favourite method of making money from blogging.

Web Services

I’ve also been offering some basic web services such as website design for small businesses, WordPress installation and setup and domain registration which have also brought in a little income over the last few months in particular.

As the Magnet4Marketing blog continues to grow I will start to add other streams of income to the blog; But for now I’m quite happy with the small income that it produces as this is going straight back into the development, marketing and promoting of the blog itself.

The real bread money comes from running my other online businesses like my online art business and business directory website.

If you’ve been blogging for a short while like me and have a steady stream of traffic that is developing each month, why not consider using some of the methods above to make money some money online from blogging too.
