from, and a launchpad to kickstart the thinking process of
making money from blogging....

In fact I received many questions on "How to make money
blogging" when I conducted my first webcast to answer my
subscribers' most pressing questions on Blogs and Rss.
You can make money Blogging in a number of ways, and in this
article I share with you up to nine ways in which you can make
1. Make Money Blogging by Selling Advertising Space
Before the advent of Blogs, we have e-zines and selling
advertising space on ezines was a popular way to earn extra
money. If you run your own Blog, you can let others advertise in
your Blogs with banner ads, solo ads, sponsor ads, classifieds
and so on.
Now that we have Blogs, you can repeat the same business model
that e-zine publishers do, that of selling advertising space.
One popular advertising company that helps Bloggers look for
advertisers is Blogads (www.Blogads.com).
Besides placing advertisers ads on your Blog, you can also make
money Blogging by placing Google Adsense into your Blog.
In my "Marketing Rampage with Blogs and RSS" Videos, I show you
how you can customize your Blog template to include the Google
Adsense into your Blog template so that you can make money
2. How to Make Money Blogging by providing technical services
such as Blog hosting or setting up Blog
You can also earn money blogging by providing technical services
such as helping people to set up their Blogs or providing your
own Blog hosting service.
One example of this is www.typepad.com . This is a Blog hosting
service provider that charges a monthly fee. Typepad lets you
create your Blog and they will host your Blog for you, and
provide you with a number of Blog features.
3. Make Money Blogging by setttin up joint venture marketing
Joint Venture marketing is a powerful marketing strategy
employed by many top online marketers.

can also promote or endorse certain products to your Blog
readers and this way, and split the profits from the sales
This is another way to make money blogging.

5. Make Money Blogging by turning your Blog contents into
products Another way in which you can make money blogging is to
repackage your Blog contents into an e-book or an audio product
and sell it. For example, if you run your own Podcasting show or
an 'online radio show', you can easily compile your podcast
recordings into a CD compiliation and sell it.
6. How to make money blogging by swapping blogs
You've heard of ad swapping when it comes to e-zine publishing,
where publishers publish each other's ads in their own e-zines.
This way, you save on adveritising costs.
You can repeat the same model to Blogs, as swap ads on Blogs as
well. So instead of paying up front, you get to save, which
means more money for you to spend!
7. Make money blogging by turning blog contents into RSS feeds
and sell it as premium feeds

content is good, you can look for web businesses that are
looking for good content for related topics and sell their feed

For example, I had a subscriber who asked me how she can blog
about cats and make money from blogging about cats.
I shared with her that firstly, perhaps she might want to go
niche instead of targeting the broad category of "cats", and
using the example of a Persian cat, which is a niche by itself,
she can start a blog on Persian cats, providing valuable
information as well as recommended solutions and products to the
upkeep and maintenance of Persian cats.
