Since I started this series on blogging and making money online, I’ve got a lot of emails from people who are excited to learn about blogging, make money online and they want to do it quick.
You see, reading between the lines, I had a feeling that maybe I haven’t told you the FULL TRUTH!
So, pay close attention to what I have to say below….
BLOGGING DOES NOT MAKE MONEY!
I mean, 99% of bloggers don’t make money.
In most cases it is because they thought having a blog and posting random articles will make them money.
Snap out of that lazy thinking mode for a second and let’s talk about basic economics.
Money will exchange hands when you Sell something that someone is willing to buy!
That is just a simple foundational principle of running any venture/ business.
You get hired for work because you are selling a set of skills and knowledge that your employer is willing to pay for.
Blogging is no different.
As long as you are not Selling anything, you will not make a dime or a Kobo!
There’s a variety of things you can sell, and I got this mind-map from problogger that shows you the many possibilities of making money from blogging.
Here’s what blogging gives you…
BLOGGING MAKES YOU AN AUTHORITY IN YOUR CHOSEN NICHE!
When you become a recognised authority, opportunities to sell will start showing up. You can start selling
Ad Space – Because you have a lot of traffic coming to your blog that some companies wants to reach.
Products – That you created yourself
Products – That other people created and you get a commission
Plus many more…

PS: If you are concerned about what people will say about you when you share an affiliate link with them, then it is probably one of the first indications that your mindset is one of the stumbling blocks stopping you from making money online. A quick way to fix that is to find things your audience (friends, colleagues, co-workers, family etc) will appreciate on Dealdey and point them to it.
PPS: Dealdey will only pay you for a first time buyer, so you might have to do a bit more work to find someone who hasn’t bought anything on Dealdey before.
