The very first step you should take is to make your site design look professional, if you cannot do that you can always contact a good web designer to do that for you and make sure that there is a contact us, privacy policy, disclaimer, and about us page. the very essence of creating pages is to make brands know what your site is all about and also know how to contact you for any collaborations.

Now after putting those in place the next thing is to make sure that you always publish quality contents and not just publish whatever you feel like publishing, let your audience be glued to your blog each time they visit and after making sure of that i will now outline some of the various platforms through which you can earn some money blogging from the comfort of you home.

1. Make Money via Google Adsense: Google Adsense is no doubt on the top of the when it comes to earning money obnline via your blog, Google Adsense works on the basis of CPC (cost per click) ie you get a certain amount of money each time someone clicks on Google Adsense adverts displaying on your blog, though there policy is somewhat strict and difficult to get an approval but if you have followed my blog post from the previous post where i laid emphasis on how to start a blog to this very post i do not think your blog would find it difficult getting an approval, if you do not have there adverts on your blog already, you can sign up via

2. Make Money via Sponsored Posts: Sponsored posts can come individually or via a firm, i previously wrote a blog on how to monetize your blog with valuedvoice now they are one firm i have tested and certified them might want to check them out via and one lovely thing about sponsored posts is that all is on your own terms, you have the opportunity to fix whatever price you so which per blog post published on your blog.

3. Make Money via Affiliate Marketing: When we talk about affiliate marketing if you don't know already, it's basically telling your audience of the availability of certain product or services and when they in turn purchase via your link you get a commission. Top of the list for me are Amazon, Ebay, Shareasale and Alibaba. but there are many more which you can always google.

4. Make Money via E Books: This is basically putting some lecture on a subject matter you have knowledge on in a digital form and selling it out and making your profits.

Those are the ways through which you can start a blog and make money, Actually there are lot more but those are top on the list that many people have tested and confirmed.
