Monetize your blog.
Once you create your brand, and you have an audience that wants to listen to you, it’s time to monetize. There are plenty of ways to do it from the fairly easy, like advertising, to something much more difficult such as creating a physical product that you will sell. What's best for you depends on who you are and the industry you are in.
This is the simplest method, but also the least profitable. Besides the famous Google Adwords, try other advertisers that can bring you even more money.
Become a speaker at conferences or seminars.
Most likely, there are many conferences in your area of expertise. In the beginning, you can speak for free. Then, once you build credibility, you can charge for your services.
Become an affiliate partner.
There are likely a lot of companies in your area of interest that offer affiliate programs. Once you become an affiliate partner, you can earn a certain percentage on the things that you sell to your audience.
Create a product that you can sell.
You can create decorative products, t-shirts, or other things that you think are related to what you do. You don’t have to produce them, there are plenty of companies that will do it for you. The only thing you need is an idea of what you want to sell and the design.
Consider other ways to monetize: write articles for magazines, create a book or a TV program, or offer consulting services.
