Blogging is no more a hobby or time-pass. People came to know the potential of blogging and how much do bloggers make money from their blogs. As a beginner, if you want to generate some income or create a passive income source, then it is a good idea to start a blog in 2019.

There are so many bloggers in India who are living dependent on from their blog income. Many people are quitting their jobs and taking blogging as their full-time profession. Now the question is, how to make money from a blog?

Let’s find out the different ways one can generate income from a blog.

By Showing Advertisement On Your Blog

Advertisement is the best way to make money online. The concept here is that you should have a website with a good amount of traffic and readers. Now you can display ads on your website and when people click or see those ads, you will get some revenue from that.

Google AdSense is the best way to do that. But to apply for Google Adsense you must have to create a quality website with all the necessary pages. Gradually grow your blog by writing on topics related to high CPC keywords so that you can display related ads with maximum earning potential.

Display advertising-income mainly depends upon your website traffic and also from which country you are getting that traffic. The more traffic you can get, the more income you will be able to generate. So, work hard to create a quality website with more traffic on some high CPC niche.

By Selling Advertising Space

When you have a quality website with good amount of traffic, you will get many offers to display advertisements on your website. I am not talking about Google Adsense, rather, showing a banner ad on your website sidebar or header area.

You can use platforms like and easily attract customers who are looking for such advertisement options. Sell your website space to ensure that you are making a good income every month.

By Accepting Sponsored Articles

This is another popular way to make money from blogging. As your website is getting a good amount of traffic, you will get many offers from different people who will be interested to pay you just for publishing an article about their products or services.

Make sure you negotiate with them at the right price and accept only products related to your website niche or topic. If you can make sure about that, you will earn a good amount of money every month from such sponsored articles. E.g. personal finance, health, travel, etc. are some good niches.

By Promoting Affiliate products

Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways to generate income from your blog. You don’t need that much traffic from a blog, if you are targeting product promotion. But you have to find out the right product to promote which has good potential to sell and also offer good commissions.

E.g. You can join MilesWeb affiliate program and promote their web hosting through your blog articles. MilesWeb ranks as one of the popular web hosting companies of India. You can write about their web hosting plans, detailed review and share coupon codes from your blog and generate affiliate commission on every sale you make.

Besides that, there are plenty of affiliate networks that you can join and promote their products online. E.g. In India few of the popular affiliate networks are CueLinks, Vcommission, Amazon India, etc. Similarly, you can also promote web hosting affiliate programs and make good money from your blog.

By Selling Digital Products From Your Blog

Blogging is another great way for people who have an interest in creating digital products like eBooks, tools, plugins, courses, etc. You can easily create your products and promote them through your blog or website and utilize that traffic to generate income.

E.g. If you have a blog on income tax tips with a good amount of traffic, you can easily create a course related to that and sell that course through your website. Not only that, you can sell your product from different other platforms as well.

Nowadays with the power of the internet, anyone can learn anything from any part of India. So, this is a good environment to create some quality courses or eBooks as the demand is really high. You can also create your own products and then sell them through your blog.

By Offering Freelance Services

As a blogger, you have to learn many skills so that you can manage your website alone. And that’s the biggest advantage of blogging. If you are blogging for a few years, you will realize that you have learned a few skills like content writing, blog designing, SEO, image creation and others.

This way you will gradually become an expert in a few areas and start offering services through your blog or pick work from different freelance platforms like Upwork,, etc.

E.g. There are many people who are doing good in writing content and they are making good amount of money by writing content on other blogs. You can also design a logo, create featured images, or offer other services. Just explore the skills you have acquired and get some work to make money online.


Here, I have mentioned some of the most effective ways to generate income from your blog. This list has only a few popular ways, but it can be extended further with more such income generation ideas.

But the most important thing in this process is to create a website in a profitable niche or as per your skills. This will help you to connect with the right audience and as your blog grows with time, you will start getting opportunities to make money from your blog.

Don’t be in a hurry, as this is a genuine path to make money online and you have to take enough efforts to get success. Creating a website may not be a big task, but making it successful with growing traffic and loyal readers needs huge efforts. And one can’t skip that process.

So, if you have a plan to start a blog in 2019 for creating a passive income source, then don’t wait much and find out the topic of your interest where you can write and have good earning potential. Take blogging seriously as it has very good earning potential.
