Making Money From Blogging For Free

If you are serious about making money on the internet by blogging then you would have, at some point, visited many of the blogs produced by the top guys like Shoemoney, John Chow, Pro Blogger and the ilk.

They all spout the same type of thing, you have to spend money in order to make money. Spend money on a custom layout, spend money on advertising and promoting your blog, spend money on getting people to write for your blog, spend money on prizes for kick-ass competitions.

When I first started blogging my main aim was simple: To make as much money from blogging by SPENDING AS LITTLE as I possibly can.

That is why I Need Discipline exists, in order to show other people that you can make money by blogging (and other ways) without having to go out and mortgage your house to the hilt.

Today I’m going to show you how to make money from blogging without spending a single penny.

1. Get a free blog.

Go to Blogger and get yourself a free blog. These blogs are pretty simple and basic but they are free and because they are owned by Google they are listed in their search engine super fast.

2. Sign up to Adsense

Adsense is the daddy of all advertising networks as far as I (and thousands of others) are concerned. Once you have the account place the ad units on your blog. You could also use others such as Adbrite, AdToll or even Bidvertiser.

3. Get Traffic to your blog

In the beginning gaining traffic can be hard. Tell your friends. Put your URL in your MSN, YAHOO, AOL scree name, put the link on your Facebook, MySpace, Bebo & Twitter profiles. You can find more ideas on a previous post I did about building traffic.

If you install a tracking script then you can check out where most of your traffic is coming from and build on that.

4. Sign Up To Blog Review Networks

If you are new to making money from blogging then you really do not have the time to have morals and standards. The point of the matter is that you can make a good amount of money from writing blog reviews on your blog.

Lots of people find this kind of thing bad as the writer is, more often than not, writing in a biased fashion because they are being paid. I don’t buy into this and happy write reviews on almost any subject.

I wrote a post that has 19 of them listed for you to get stuck into. Some of them have lots of offers, some of them have hardly any, so it makes sense to sign up to as many as possibly to increase your chances.

I’m not going to promise you that you will make lots of money doing this the free way, but it is a good place to start if you want to make money online but don’t want to risk putting in large amount of or money.

  1. LOL, in other words making money online. It sounds as easy but in actual fact there is a lot of hard work though. 🙂

    • It amazes me how many people think it is as easy as plonking some Adsense banners on a page and then walking away and wait for the money to roll in.

      Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

  2. Nice post…….Blogging and Google adsense is such great way make some good bucks in the comforts of your home.

    Which post you are referring to in this article? I can't find it.

    I agree that earning money isn't easy and you've to put a lot of hard effort to even see money flowing from Adsense and other affiliate programs. I've also setup my blog on Blogger as wordpress (free hosting) doesn't allow monetizing your blog.

  4. Making money online is just like any regular jobs you have. You have to take effort to make the money work for you. It's not a sleep-now-earn-tomorrow process.
