There are two things fishing here, a way to blog and a way to make money blogging. Two entity collides together to form blog monetization.
That sounds really great.
In fact, shortly, we will likely know whether the fishing audit will make a way for bloggers or marketers, then time will tell.
Now, a way of blogging happens in what instance? how to write? or how to drive your passion?
Same time, a way to make money blogging happens in what scenario? how you intended to sell yourself out? or how your audience sees you be?
In both cases, the terms are contrary and contemporary to each other.
Think about it.
How to write? and how to drive your passion?.
Then, what happens when you write?
Say I write a simple sentence, I assume, I wrote that based on the expression I have had about it.
So what happens when you drive your passion?
In this case, I seem to do what I ever dream of doing. Doing it helps in bringing out the best in me. Right?
How do you intend to sell yourself out? and how your audience sees you be?.
Selling myself out?
In that case, I combine my passion(talent and skills) to resonate highly with what the audience wants, not what I think to see it be.
Then, what about how your audience sees you be?
How they see me be is section into the following criteria:
- My way of writing.
- My uniqueness.
- Passionate individual.
- My unique selling point.
And that’s all.
Now that you finally know that, how do you wish to get them for leads?
If that seems to be the case right now, I won’t talk about myself, why because great men are not honored in their home(where they came from).
Also, you all have been with me for a while, you seem to know me better and even better.
Because of that, I will share a brief story of someone to you here and right now.
To begin with, allow me to share a motivational story of a person who has made it blogging.
And here he is:
This is Neil Patel’s money profile data.
The whole thing seems too soft and spontaneous quite right. But his blog generated over a million dollars a year in revenue.
And he also said, making $ 381, 772 a month is a lot of money…..especially for a blog.
So what do you think about that?
Are you thinking you can’t make a little fraction of that?
Let me say to you, get that off your mind, don’t yet underestimate yourself.
It doesn’t work that way and honestly, it doesn’t.
But, I won’t also dare myself to leave you in dreamland or lets you start building a castle in the air.
Never, I won’t do that to you.
Just that, right now, I’m more likely to broaden the scope to the fullest understanding of it all and see how to actually make $ 7,000 real quick blogging.

Step 1. Monetize your blog wisely
I get you. You don’t want too much stress, you love easy and free things. I was once in your shoes, I just have to help myself by pulling them off.
Say I navigate to the organic search engine, I flip a keyword “how to buy pancake” Google doesn’t just show the relevant websites, but also the ratings.
I didn’t stop there, this makes me go to the subsequent web pages, what do you think I saw there?. I got to found out that each meta description consists of compelling call-to-action.
That direct end-consumers to perform a specific action.
Not just that, the title tag of the blog posts seems to be full of direction and what they intended you to know.
While the meta description contains the information that end-consumers needs.
Here is another example you need to know:
What do you think about the screenshot below?
The title tag of the web page 1 and 2 seems to be relevant, but the meta description wasn’t full of much-indeed information and direction, rather than explanation.
But for web page 3, the meta description consists of the information and direction that’s much-needed, that way, it seems so easy to know what exactly to do next for the whole travel booking thing.
Let’s say I wish to create my own title tag and meta description for a sample, that way if i choose to rank for a keyword Fashion designer.
How do you think I will simply go about it?
Well, the simplicity of how to go about it goes this way.
I will simply go to the organic search engine related results, study what people are actually searching for(search intent), correlate my keyword to resonate with their interest.
This way, I knew people are actually surfing for this keyword ” Fashion designer in lekki Lagos” but I just have to make it more appealing to the audience, making it radiate in a long tail keyword form.
Because long-tail keyword is where you found your SEO opportunity.
That way my title tag seems to be “Fashion designer in lekki Lagos, Nigeria, and why I made use of this keyword “fashion designer in lekki” was because that is where I simply came from(my country).
In that case, It is easier for my keyword to rank highly when someone searches for “fashion designer in lekki”.
This shows I only target my blog post to the residents staying in lekki Lagos.
So when someone searches for that keyword, my blog is likely to appear.
But for the meta description, I donate my right terms to make it more saucy and driven.
Let’s say I put on a term like the one below, I churn it to be more compelling and also make sure it goes by what the end consumers want.
I can simply make mine very simple and direct.
Just by stating the much-needed information and building it up with an important call-to-action Click here for more tips.

Step 2. Think about what you have been thinking about
May I ask you? What is it that you think about?
Your talent or skills?
Then, if you got either, why not develop it?
One thing you ought to know is that you don’t have to cut the cake more than you can consume, but cut it according to your stomach size.
This takes me to how exactly do you want your audience to find you and know you.
Do you have a website? have you hosted it?
If so, what do you love doing?
Because what you love doing is what you keep thinking about and this can sustain you for years without fading.
Mind you, whatever decision you make now is what define you to be.
According to Anastasia,
Kat’s blog received more than 300,000 subscribers in the first 20 months of operation.
In fact, Kat’s blog received more than 1 million unique visitors.
And he achieved those feet by making it clear to himself what to do and how he could get the audience wanting more.
Same time, in the blogging industry, you don’t have to impose or think about things that aren’t necessary.
Of course, all bloggers are writers but not all writers are bloggers. That way you don’t have to get yourself disturb when the journey seems very tedious for you.
It happens but you can get rid of it once the mentality of change and improvement abides in you.
Step 3 Sell yourself out
Ryan Biddulph is a human-like you who write about how you can create content and monetize it while you’re on the move. According to Jafar Sadik
He also writes about his experience while traveling and all these things have contributes a lot to his success story in the blogging industry.
Meaning that there’s more to just having a skill.
The most successful bloggers you quite know about got a skill, but the skill wasn’t the drive behind their success.
Quite right! but they got the ability to drive and sell out their skills and talents.
Here is an example:
Hannah’s blog covers every part of lifestyle advice and tips that can improve you.
Today, her blog has thousands of followers across the social media platform.
So if you got skills and talents, then begin to sell them out before it becomes too late to do so.
Step 4 Monetize your WordPress or blogger with affiliate marketing real quick
Don’t give up! when you think you’re ready to stop blogging because maybe this isn’t your thing, remember why you started. According to perfection hangover
You can and should be compensated for your concerted efforts. But making money blogging isn’t easy.
In other words, affiliate marketing is also an incredible way of monetizing your blog to become a stream of revenue source.
Here is a success story you need to know about:
According to perfection hangover
Michelle Schroeder is the blogger making sense of cents. She started blogging as a way to improve her finances.
She had over $38,000 a student loan debt when she started with her master’s degree and she was determined to pay it off quickly and help her readers achieve the same.
Today, Michelle has become one of the absolute successful affiliate marketers and she is now making an average of $154,000+ per month blogging.
Well, when thinking of promoting an affiliate link for a brand, make sure the affiliate marketing product is surrounded by the topic keyword at hand.
Take, for instance, If you have opt-in for a web hosting affiliate marketing plan e.g Bluehost.
That way let your content surround the affiliate product and direct the readers to take a specific action.
For example, click here to sign up or create a website for yourself.
Meaning that the compelling call to action will give the readers a glimpse of what to do next.
After writing an informational and in-depth content about the keyword.
Step 5 Use your Youtube channel to direct end-users to make an order through your blog
Another method you can simply use to double up your hustle is to direct your Youtube audience to make a purchase through your affiliate links.
That way it’s quite easy to fuel up the revenue of your blog real quick.
Here’s an example to the above statement:
Kevin is an individual that shows a lot of expertise and this is what he did below.
With his Youtube channel, he was able to drive his audience to make a purchase through the affiliate links that were given.
By including a call to action that makes them perform a specific action real quick.
Step 6 Monetize your blog with Google Adsense
Statistically, it’s no secret that a high percentage of bloggers prefer using Google Adsense as the source of their blog revenue.
They believe it’s quite easy to flourish their account with the incentive packages Google Adsense has provided for marketers and bloggers.
Turning their passion for revenue making.
Also, with the extension of how Google Adsense team has proved their trust and credibility to publishers.
Due to that, publishers feel the easiest way to monetize their blog to get some money real quick is to leverage Google Adsense.
Here’s an example below:
According to Zac Johnson:
Jeremy made $132,994.97 just by selling ad space for Google Adsense.
Another exact example is:
A Nigerian blogger known as Linda Ikeji was able to double up her wealth real quick through Google Adsense apart from sponsored posts and selling ad space to big companies.
But, remember, all the above mentions can’t be achieved just with a little fraction of traffic your blog generates.
It needs a lot more to achieve that great foot.
So I advise you to build your audience first by reading this article here.
Step 7 Sell and promote your personal ebook
Writing ebook is nice, it shows your expertise in an industry, but it can only be great when you have people reading them.
Here’s what Franklin said:
I know this was coming. I knew because years ago, I decided to not only write books but sell them as well.
But, due to that, he was able to make a name for himself by doing these two things.
- How to write books that solve people’s needs.
- How to market and promote those books so they sell every single month.
Then, how to write and how to sell?
Say i switch to Google trends I can easily see how a certain topic is trending for months.
Same time, if i move over to Amazon, I can sense how certain books are fairly in there.
And that brings me to my conclusion that the lesser the ebook price, the higher the conversion.
Step 8 Promote your expertise
Do you have a training institute or are you running a seminar course? and you want to be get found?
If so, promote your blog by displacing your expertise in there.
Show your audience what value you have in a pocket for them.
Doing this shows them your credibility and how much they could trust you.
Here’s what Nathan Lakta said:
But, coaching is more expensive and offers better. Most importantly, it’s designed to serve the specific need of people.
And here is an example below:
This digital marketing blog in Nigeria, quite right, seems to promote his training course offers by making his audience prompt to register for free.
That way and without a fallacy that blog will generate a lot more of leads for his coaching training service.
What a brilliant idea that was.
Step 9 Promote your special offers with Facebook ads or Google ads
I’m not quite sure but if so, do you have any special offer you want to promote to these audiences?
In both cases, they run their campaign on a cost per click and pay per click model.

Instagram is another option that serves as a way to get the audience engaged for your offers.
Even though Instagram hasn’t serve do-follow links in other parts of the pages apart from the bio section.
Still, you can embed your links to look more captivating for more capture of leads.
By stating clearly what the product is all about.
But, mind you, you can only do it once at a time.
