Did you know you can make money blogging? All you need is a smartphone or computer, data, ideas to write about and a powerful prayer that good ol’ ‘NEPA’does not interefere too often.
There are millions of blogs all over the world and thousands of subject matter/ niches ranging from sports to gossip to fashion. We read them every day on google or other search engines after typing a question, a ‘how to’ inquiry or just some random news search on football. Don’t know what to write about? This will help
Haven’t you ever thought , “Why would anybody dedicate so much time writing about these stuff’. Why would anybody just choose to give free news or some juicy or educative content without expecing anything in return for his time and expertise? Well in reality, they make money blogging or providing content on websites, they just need you to read it. Actually you and thousands of others, it’s called traffic. Contrary to real life,traffic is something prayed for by every blogger or website owner.
Here is how traffic helps bloggers make money without spending a kobo. You see those annoying ads that pop-up each time you go to a website or some links that have ad or advertisement tags on them? Well those are the ads that generate money for bloggers or website owners.
The ads could be by Google which is the most common type as it is easier and more accessible though the money generated will not be so much depending on how frequent your visitors click on them.
There are also other sites that pay you to place ads on your blog, the more views or clicks, the more the money you get.
For blogs or sites with higher traffic, you can sell your spaces and place ads on them for businesses and companies like MTN, Airtel, Naij.com, Forex etc. That is how Linda Ikeji got to buy a 500million naira mansion this year, she makes millions of naira from Jumia’s ads alone!
Another way is writing reviews for companies or blogging their product on your blog for a fee. Companies like Creative Content, Matomy SEO offer these services.
