The Simple Steps Pro-bloggers Use to Earn Income Blogging

Steps to Earn Income Blogging

Steps to Earn Income BloggingWant to earn income blogging?

This is how:

Step-by-step, see exactly how people make money blogging. They…

  1. Set up a blog
  2. Write useful content
  3. Look for readers and convert them into email subscribers
  4. Give their subscribers content that builds trust
  5. Earn income by selling products or services their audience needs

Oh yes, that’s the model pro-bloggers use. It’s hard. But not complicated.

Only keep learning.

The revelation

You can earn your first income with less than 500 blog users a month.

Most bloggers skip step 3 and 4 when they first start blogging.

I jumped to 5 and started making money by first showing people how to create blogs in Ghana. They saw my ability and contracted me to create theirs for them. I simply had to use my blog as an example.

Then I started ghost writing for other blogs and sites through places like UpWork. Check out some of my withdrawals back in those days from the screenshot below:

I have ever won a $19,500 contract before. It’s real. See for yourself from this screenshot:

Some of my contracts on Upwork

And again I used the articles on my blogs as an example.

Of course, people do call me for free consultation, too.

Those are my services.

Meaning, I had no product. And I still don’t have one yet. Why? It’s a lot of work to create a product. So I added…

One more lucrative strategy


For those who don’t have both products and services to sell I have this to share with you:

Well, excel in earning income from blogging by selling someone else’s products or services.

This is how:

I make money blogging through affiliate marketing. Not only from my blogs but from Facebook, Word of mouth and through Emails.

Just ask interested people to use your referral links to get what they need. That’s it.

With less than 500 blog users a month, you can earn money using this method. No wonder it’s the most popular way of making money online.

I hate this…

Conventional method of making money blogging

It’s the least profitable method for new bloggers.

I’m talking about selling advertising.

Never think of it as a beginner. It needs lots of traffic to make even a dollar.

The truth is: no company would think of allowing you to promote their products or services on your blog if it has less than 500 people visiting your blog in a day.

For a fee? No one will grant you that opportunity.

So humbly in the slow-but-sure mode earn commissions as an affiliate when your small audience makes purchases through your affiliate links as a referrer.

    Hi Francis,

    This is revealing. I love the way you present the information so beginners bloggers don’t think is so easy making money online.

    It takes some concrete efforts and work to really make something significant online. Selling other people’s products and services is my favorite method of learning at the moments.

    It pays well if you have a loyal community of readers that trust you.

    Thanks for sharing, nice read.

    Hi Francis. This is another good post from you about successful blogging. A screenshot of your blogging income, and some tips on how they can get the same income, is a great way to motivate others. I used to visit a blog sometime back (forgot the name) where the blogger used to post pictures of his monthly blogging income checks from Adsense, banner ad income, affiliate programs he had signed up for, etc. All told, it used to add up to a huge amount, and it was very motivating for me and his other readers. Keep up the good work.

    Hey Francis,


    You have done a great job on Upwork. I have always thought of freelance writing but I don’t really have that much time.

    Making money is easy only if you have the right strategy.
    Great job.
    Keep it up.

    Yes upwork is really great platform for freelancers to earn money by providing services. We can earn money by providing different online services.

    But seems like they had limited the signup process for new users.

What are your thoughts?
