with an ad-free blog. I already showed you how to monetize your skills but we will go further. There are lots of techniques and I will show you how to monetize your blog according to your desires and your abilities.

4 concrete techniques to make money with a blog , without advertising, no matter your business sector
- how to earn the equivalent of one month of executive salary in 2 days
- the method for your customers to offer themselves to pay you, without you contact them
Determine your business style
Before presenting the various ways to monetize a blog, it is vital to choose the style of business (and lifestyle) you want to have:
Do you want:
- to create a successful business and become a leader in your market?
- generate comfortable income by working as little as possible?
- to work as little as possible and to travel to earn less?
- to earn a maximum without counting your hours?
It is important to choose your business style from the start. Indeed, it will determine the economic models that you can use . For example, I travel a lot in different countries all year long. It is almost impossible for me to monetize my blog by selling physical training in France. I propose but only when I’m there so no more than 3 or 4 times a year.
Then you have to think long term. Concretely, ask yourself what you want to do in 5 years . If your goal is clear, your business model and your lifestyle choices will adapt. I take my example and I can tell you clearly that I do not see myself doing video training in 5 years . I am building all the elements to live full time from my e-commerce sites and my software.
1. Make a living with webinars
How to make 200 dollars in one day? By Organizing webinars regularly is a great way to make money with a blog. All you need is a few hundred loyal readers . I love webinars for a lot of reasons:
- this allows you to sell a product you have not created yet
- you can create a personal link with your prospects and customers
- you create a sense of urgency because a webinar only lasts one to two hours
- it allows to test a business idea
There are several ways to monetize a blog with webinars. First, you can use them if you do not have a product to sell and you do not want to create one. For example, you can sell a monthly subscription to your customers. This subscription allows them to attend a webinar a week. At the end of each session, you send them the registration and a plan of action in PDF format.
Then you can use webinars to pre-sell a product . A few days ago, I organized a webinar on e-commerce niches. In the end, I suggested to my prospects a training offer at a reduced price and limited in time. I was blown away by the conversion rates!
These live conferences also allow you to test a business idea before spending months creating a product. Just do the webinar and offer a commercial offer at the end. You will be very quickly fixed on the returns of your prospects compared to your idea. In other words, if nobody buys it is because your idea does not interest anyone. In the opposite case you can go there.
2. Create and sell training
The training sale is the main economic model of this blog . We sell video, physical training, corporate, via webinars, workshop in the evening etc. The advantage of selling training is that you use leverage. You create the training once and you can sell it automatically for months or years. In addition, the training is perfect for a blog. Indeed, each article allows you to give advice and prove your skills. After a while, you inevitably create a hard core of loyal readers. They will be the first to buy your trainings.
There are different types of training and I advise you to test them all.
- create video training with a camera or screencast
- record audios
- write PDFs
- offer live training (webinars)
- organize one or more days of physical training in different cities
- organize two-hour workshops in the evening
- propose cycles of physical training in small groups over several days
Of course, you must choose the model that best fits your lifestyle . As I said, I will not base all my business model on physical training because that would make me slave of my company and that would prevent me from traveling.
Coaching allows you to earn a comfortable living with a small number of clients. We will also launch our coaching offers on Marketing Hack soon. If you publish content regularly and you manage to stand out from the competition, customers will come to you. As I write this article, the MarketingHack blog is only 5 months old. We have a dozen other sites in the webmarketing sector but more oriented beginners.
In short, every week, I receive lead coaching requests ready to pay me every month for me to help. Most of them bought my trainings and were very satisfied. That said, they do not have the time (or the desire) to practice everything that I teach because they already have a job that takes all their time. They therefore seek to be guided step by step to go as fast as possible by avoiding losing months.
Whatever your industry, you can sell coaching. Just insert a banner or link in the menu of your blog that points to a mini sales page. Regarding the rates it’s up to you to see. As far as I’m concerned, I’m not here to sell my time. I propose packages starting from 297 € for two hours per month. In other words, I do not sell coaching by the kilos.
4. Sell services
Very few bloggers use this monetization method when it works well. Every week, I receive requests for quotes for the installation of blogs or e-commerce sites, the implementation of SEO strategy, Adwords campaigns, Facebook or e-mail marketing. In short, there are lots of potential customers who prefer to pay for you to perform their tasks rather than spend weeks themselves.
Here again, most sectors of activity allow you to offer services. That said, I advise you to sub-treat. In my case, I only take care of webmarketing. When I am asked to install a blog, an e-commerce site, forms or to set up a Google Analytics account, I under process to partners and I keep 30% of the amount paid by the customer.
