How to Effectively Monetize Your Blog

How long does a blog take to make money? In this digital era, you can earn money in a variety of ways, including from blogging. Blogs aren't merely a platform to write articles or reviews, but it's also a place where you can earn money. You can do so with various ways from endorsements to Google AdSense. In this chance, we'd like to tell you how to monetize your blog and how long it takes to make money from blogging.

If You Focus on Job Reviews or Content Placement

A job review is an offering from a client in which you have to review something, whether it is a product or service that will be published in your blog. On the other hand, content placement is where a client offers to place their content in your blog. So, the difference between job reviews and content placement is the author.

Job reviews mean you are the writer while content placement means the writer is your client. Both will have backlinks to the client's website. The primary requirement to get a job review or content placement is based on your blog's DA and PA. The higher the DA and PA, the higher the offering. To get a job review or content placement, you need at least DA 15 and PA 15, but the higher the better.

If you start from scratch, it takes at least 6 months to reach DA 15 or higher. It depends on how you optimize your blog. And it takes a year from the very beginning you create a blog to get a job review or content placement. If you optimally manage your blog, you'll likely get your first $100 from these jobs. It all depends on your efforts.

So, in conclusion, it takes around 1,5 years to 2,5 years for a blog to make money from job reviews and content placement.

If You Focus on AdSense

Besides job reviews and content placement, you can also make money from blogging through AdSense. You can register your blog for AdSense if it's already 6 months. And to get an ideal income from AdSense, you need to have at least 1,000 visitors at minimum per day. Thus, if you start from scratch, you can attract 1,000 visitors per day within 6 months.

If your blog is already 6 months old, you can register it for Google AdSense, and it will be immediately accepted. You can place your ads in strategic locations. If you have received $10, you'll be asked to enter a pushpin. To get the first $100, you need at least a year, which is the fastest duration. With a note that the advertising account is immediately accepted.

Because there are quite many who are rejected. Some bloggers even took 2 years to have their accounts accepted. So, in conclusion, it takes a year for a blog to make money if focusing on job reviews and content placement, and 2 years if focusing on AdSense.

Ways to Monetize Your Blog

There are several ways to monetize your blog, here they are.

Google AdSense

Google AdSense  is today's most popular advertising service. This service is intended for publishers or website owners to display advertisements. AdSense and AdWords are basically the same service. The difference is that AdWords provides a service for advertisers to buy ads. Google AdSense uses a complex algorithm to analyse the content on your blog.

This makes sure that the displayed ads are in accordance with your blog. For example, if your blog reviews cars, AdSense will display ads about promotions related to automotive. The pay for every click varies, from $0.1 to $5, depending on countries, competitors among advertisers and articles discussed.

For instance, the advertisement displayed on a blog about cars is more expensive than the one about toys. Because cars are more expensive so that the investment for ads is more expensive as well.


You probably have seen some bloggers promote certain products or services on their blog content, whether it's a review, unboxing moment, or just product description. This is what's called endorsement. Bloggers can work with certain companies to endorse their products or services. And the benefits vary, from money to free products, depending on the deal between the blogger and the company.

You can also use this way to make money from blogging. Usually, it's the company that will contact you first for collaboration. Therefore, you have to make sure that your blog has the quality to attract companies to endorse you.


Affiliate marketing is another popular way to earn money from blogging. Through this program, you'll get a commission every time a visitor makes a purchase or complete data via the link or affiliate banner on your blog. The commission varies, depending on the company's policy, from 25%, 50%, to 70%.

There are many e-commerce platforms that offer this affiliate program, such as Shopee, Amazon, eBay, and so on. You are suggested to choose one that suits the theme or topic of your blog. For example, if your blog is about beauty, you can choose an affiliate program that promotes skincare or makeup products.

Products and Services

You can make money from blogging by selling products or services on your blog. When it comes to products, it can be physical or digital products. If you have a skill to write tutorials, you can write an e-book to sell. You can also sell services, such as graphic designing, website developing, article writing, and so on if you have the skill.

Whatever products or services you sell, make sure it fits the content on your blog. For example, if your blog is about cooking, you can sell recipe e-books or food products, such as snacks, instant food, and others.
