Making money from a blog through ads is popular; however, it is not the only way to make money from blogging. In fact, there are several other ways to make money from a blog without ads in Nigeria.
Besides, these non-ad ways could even bring in more money as the money from ads (especially through Ad networks like AdSense) depends on your traffic and clicks on the ads.
So if Adsense keeps rejecting you or you are not even interested in placing ads on your blog, but still want to make money, this post will show you how to make money from your blog without ads.
Keep reading to find out how you could do that.
How to Make Money from a Blog without Ads
- Publish Sponsored Posts and Reviews
This involves working with brands in your niche. You get their products and services, try them out, publish the review on your blog, and get paid. Brands that cannot afford to pay you in cash might ask you to keep the product after the review.
You can then sell the products to get your money – or keep using it. However, before brands can start working with you, you must have an authoritative blog, and since you would be paid for the review, it must be positive.
- Become a Freelance Writer or Editor
One invaluable value that blogging adds to bloggers is that it improves their writing skills; therefore, if you have been blogging consistently for a couple of years, the chances are that you would have honed your writing skills. You can use the skills to make money by applying for writing and editing jobs as a freelancer.
Your blog would also serve as your portfolio, and whenever a client asks to see your previous projects, you would just ask the client to check out your blog. To get more freelancing job through your blog, you can also design a “hire me” landing page, on which you sell yourself to prospective clients.
- Publish an eBook (and a Book)
Publishing an eBook is another way to make money from your blog without ads. But before publishing an eBook, you must already have a massive following and loyal readers of your blog, because they are the ones that would buy the eBook.
You might think publishing an eBook would be tasking and take a lot of your time. This thinking is not true. You could write your eBook by curating the best topics on your blog and add more insight to them. After the eBook is written and published, you can then display it for sale on your blog.
If you like, you could publish a hardcopy version of the book, and that’s more money.
- Start Membership on Your Blog
By introducing membership to your blog, you can make money from the members. But like most of the other ways of making money from a blog without ads, you must already have high traffic and loyal fans base.
For it is these loyal fans that will sign up for your paid membership offer. You could make members pay per month or pay once upon registration.
The challenge you would have to deal with when using the paid membership to get money from your blog is the issue of creating premium contents that appeal to members. Without that, membership would decline.
- Become an Influencer or a Consultant
If you have established yourself as a thought leader in your niche, you could also make money by being an influencer or a consultant. You already have lots of people that trust your judgement and follow your advice, without thinking twice.
You can start influencing their buying decision by being an influencer, who shares products and services he trusts with these people that trust him. Brands would pay you for sharing their products and services as an influencer.
As for being a consultant, people get to come to you for professional advice; it could be advice related to your niche or advice related to blogging. You would advise them, and they would pay you.
Now you know how to make money from your blog with ads in Nigeria. So if AdSense is not making sense or you do not want ad in the first instance, these non-ad ways to make money from a blog are your best bet.
