I’m one of those guys that does a ton of research and when it comes to something like being able to earn money blogging or generating a passive or residual income, I’m all ears. I wholeheartedly believe in always increasing my knowledge of the Internet whether it’s learning a different or more effective marketing technique or reviewing tools and systems to make things more simple and efficient.

While I have written quite a number of articles surrounding making money online – anywhere, of course – today I’m going to write about how I earn money blogging.

Now when I say “blogging” I may be using the term fairly loosely. I don’t really consider myself a professional blogger, I’m more of an Internet marketer and very proud of the fact. That is not to say I don’t do a bit of so-called blogging when it comes to things that I actually know something about and I do capitalize on that blogging as well from a standpoint of monetizing my blogs in different ways.

Three Methods I Use to Earn Money Blogging

There are a few different ways to earn money blogging and I’m going to go over two or three that I use to earn money with.

First, Google adsense. For me, this is a fantastic program and with this one site I probably generate a couple of hundred dollars a month. Now I know two hundred isn’t anything to write home about, but you also have to remember that this isn’t my only blog! You also have to remember that I am going to have to attract traffic to my blog for other purposes so making money with adsense is just sort of a bonus.

A lot of people use adsense exclusively to earn money blogging and the key is traffic generation and not just any traffic. Like anything else, you want to make sure that your traffic is very targeted. You should only have visitors coming to your site that are interested in what you are offering – sort of makes sense. If you sell bananas you don’t want people looking for apples coming to your site, you want people looking for bananas. Yep, sounds pretty simple when you put it that way.

The second method I use to earn money blogging is with affiliate and referral programs. There are simply tons and tons of programs out there, that you can join to sell many different products. You can partner up with Amazon and sell all kinds of products or you can go with an affiliate opportunity like clickbank and sell digital products. You have many choices to pick from and you shouldn’t have a difficult time finding something that you are interested in promoting.

The Best Way to Earn Money Blogging and From a Blog

I save the best (in my humble opinion) for last, network marketing or MLM. Now I know that for many folks out there network marketing is the last thing you want to hear about. Many people have begun a network marketing career with high hopes only to find themselves in utter frustration and failure within a fairly short period of time…somewhere around 4 months statistically speaking.

However, you need to look at this business model from a business perspective. Network marketing, when done properly (most struggle with this) is fairly simple to build and utilizing the Internet is a fantastic way to build your business because you can automate so many systems and automate so much of the work.

The biggest problem with network marketing is that people are not properly trained to market their programs online. The second biggest problem is that there is typically an auto-ship program of some type or another that distributors are involved with that can slowly drain your cash reserves. There’s nothing like realizing that you have made $23 bucks in the last 3 months, but you have paid out over a grand and things just don’t really seem to be getting any better. Good news, things can get better if you get the proper training!

The key, once again, is learning how to become an effective promoter and marketer of your program. Think about it, if you were able to effortlessly recruit someone every week to your program and then be a part of teaching that person to recruit a person into their business once a week then what would your business look like after 3 months? Probably would be making a buck or two also, wouldn’t you? Like I said, I saved the best for last.

Learning to earn money blogging is not that difficult a process. Yes, there is a bit of a learning curve, but if you are serious you can literally be started within the next 24 hours and begin to generate an income within a couple of months. Although I cannot teach you how to do this stuff overnight so you can make money the next night, you can eventually become a very proficient blogger and you too can earn money blogging online.

The Different Roads of Passive Income Generation

There are numerous paths that will allow an individual to achieve a level of passive income generation. I am involved with a few different programs – all that work for me – that allow me to set up systems and drive traffic that will ultimately create residual and passive income streams, all from the comfort of my home.

So what are some of these passive income generation techniques? The methods that I participate in are: blogging, affiliate marketing, mlm or network marketing and referral marketing. I’ve been involved with the cash gifting activity in the past, but I no longer promote gifting as a passive income generation technique due to legal issues.

Passive Income Generation Through Blogging

Setting up a blog today is a very simple thing to do and one of the key platforms I use for passive income generation. By writing about topics and subjects that I am already interested and passionate about, I can drive traffic to my site that consists of like-minded individuals and this “automatic” traffic is the foundation for passive income generation. This allows me to monetize my blogs in different ways, all which create a passive lifestyle.

Passive Income Generation and the Empower Network – It Really Works!

While I often will create a unique domain name and set up a WordPress blog on my own, generating traffic by ranking well on search engines can take a bit of time. A shortcut to passive income generation when utilizing the blogging platform is by getting involved with a system like the Empower Network.

There are a few reasons to join the Empower Network that make sense. First of all the blogging network of EN allows marketers access to a huge opportunity to leverage the content of their fellow marketers. Mainly you will benefit from content on the network by being able to achieve higher page ranking in the search engines. With a new blog this could take quite some time, but with EN you could be achieving the higher rankings within days.

As far as passive income generation is concerned, the Empower Network is a wonderful opportunity for those that are just getting started online as well as providing another opportunity for those of us with a little more experience.

Monetizing Your Blog For Passive Income Generation

In terms of monetizing your blog, that can be done in a variety of ways. If you are able to drive enough traffic to your site then putting adsense advertising is one way of passive income generation. You can also sell spots on your blog to others for banner advertising, although I choose to put affiliate banners in many of those locations.

The more traffic that you generate to your blog, the more opportunities you have to be able to create varied income streams, so traffic generation is key to your overall success.

Affiliate Marketing and Passive Income Generation

Posting affiliate links in different locations on the Internet can be a phenomenal way of developing passive income. While this isn’t necessarily “passive” in the literal sense, if you post links and create articles with links to different affiliate programs, you can get a similar passive income generation feel to your efforts. Once you have a certain amount of traffic coming to a sales page for your products then it is more of a matter of maintaining the site and the traffic.

MLM and Network Marketing Passive Income Generation

This may be one of the better methods of developing a passive income, but I you have to be careful here as network marketing, while being a business model that I absolutely love, is not without its problems. For example, by their very nature, network marketing programs require some type of constant purchase of products whether it come through an auto-ship or through the sales of product to different customers outside your home.

The problem generally lies in the fact that most people cannot afford an auto-ship over an extended period of time and many folks don’t take the time, don’t feel comfortable doing or are too consumed with their current work lifestyle to go out and sell products. So what is the solution?

In my most humble of opinions, the simplest method would be to learn to generate a small amount of income with a more simpler program and use the profits from this type of program contribute to the marketing and advertising budget of a larger, more complicated program. You can use affiliate programs for this purpose or you can use other methods like referral marketing to do this as well.

Ultimately, network marketing is more of a long-term type of business model and success within this field require more experience in business and marketing, all that can be gathered by promoting more basic business models first before moving into this field of passive income generation.

Referral Marketing: My New Favorite Passive Income Generation

It’s no secret that I like simple money making programs and there are very few that are simpler than the programs from Zip Nada Zilch, the ZNZ One and ZNZ Big Cash programs.

As referral programs, these systems require you to participate in them before you actually are in a position to refer others to them, but that is actually a good thing. With the ZNZ programs mentioned above, you are required to participate in trial offers with different businesses. You can cancel your account before you are ever charged a membership fee or you may choose to keep the product or service. Once you sign up with your trial membership however, you are then eligible to refer others to the site presenting you with the opportunity of passive income generation.

Like affiliate marketing, this type of program is all about generating traffic to your site. I recommend using a blogging platform to locate and attract targeted visitors to your site, but once done through article marketing, video marketing and more, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of a residual income. One of the keys with these programs is making sure that you have a marketing system in place like the Online Payday System.

passive income generation

In the end, learning to utilize the leverage of the internet along with using marketing systems and a good income earning program is what will see you to your goals. The opportunity for passive income generation has never been so available for so many as it is today.
