By Leslie Samuel

Are you blogging?

Is your Blog a business?

Is your business making Money?

Listen to This Episode

A lot of people struggling with how to turn their blogs into businesses that actually make money. Well, in this episode, I share ten different ways to make money with your blog.

In This Episode


I remember back when Cassandre Beccai and I started talking about working together to build her natural hair blog. One of the first things I did was look around to see what was already out there.

What I found really surprised me. There were a bunch of bloggers in her niche with A LOT of traffic that weren't making any money – not because there was no money to be made, but because they didn't know HOW.

I've seen this with MANY people since, so I've decided to record this episode to share with people whenever they ask me – Leslie, how do you make money with a blog?

I cover the following 10 ways in this episode:

  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Providing Services
  • Selling your own Digital Product
  • Selling physical products
  • Advertising
  • Webinars
  • Accepting donations
  • Crowd Funding
  • Sponsorships
  • Live Events
  • Bonus tip: Be creative

Now of course, in the actual episode, I go into much more detail, and you're gonna want to listen to that.

Question for this episode: Which of these methods have you tried and how did it work for you?

How to Subscribe To The Show

  1. Hi Leslie,

    This comment will be a bit off-topic. I apologize for that, but I tried contacting you by email a while back and didn’t receive a response from you.

    You don’t have to approve this comment. I’ll understand.

    On your “About Me” page, you speak of being a believer in God, and I saw a past post about the need for more Christian bloggers.

    I’d love for you to check out my website & give me some feedback, if you’re willing and able.

    It’s primarily about how far the church has drifted from the true purposes and calling of God.


    1. Thanks for your comment. No need to apologize.

      Yes, I am a Christian and very proud of it 🙂 God is awesome!

      In terms of your website, its hard for me to respond to. I can give hundreds of suggestions. It’s better when people ask me a specific question. Then I know what to respond to.

      Wish you all the best with your blog.

  2. Thanks, Leslie.

    If possible, can we have a little email or Skype dialogue? If so, you can shoot me a quick email at [email protected].

    Thanks, too, for standing up about your love for the Lord. 🙂

    1. You’re very much welcome Geno.

      I’m not available for Skype calls. My schedule is pretty hectic so I’ve had to prioritize what I’m able to do. This is why I do the podcast – to be able to help as many people as possible free of charge. If you have a specific question you’d like me to deal with on the show, you can call the hotline at 888 835 2414.

  3. Hi Leslie,

    I can’t answer your question, alas, because I haven’t done any monetizing on my blog yet. I will say, though, that I was intrigued that you came up with 10 ways as I’d always thought there were just four or five. 🙂

    Will there be no PDF file for this episode, or is it still in the works?


    1. A PDF is definitely coming. I was in such a rush with this one that I didn’t get to recording it until 6:15 this morning and had to go to work for 7:45. So my Assistant didn’t get it until today. She will be transcribing it and finishing up the show notes and it’ll be all here by tomorrow at the latest.

  4. Belong to the group wanting to start & make money blogging….Accept all the tips I can get…Have taken Your offer…Sure want to learn from You all the ways to have a productive Blog….Appreciate All You can teach me….

    Gratitude, Love & Blessings!!!

  5. My “weapons” of choice are Providing Services & Selling your own Digital Products. I just have a lot more fun being creative in these two areas. I’ve tried a lot of those on the list, they just didn’t fit who I was. Not that they didn’t work, but it just isn’t who I am. Great post!

    1. Haha, I love the statement “My weapons of choice”. I hear you. I like those two weapons too – selling digital products more than the services part. Digital products are much more scalable, but providing services can be a lot of fun – especially when you get to interact with people.

      Thanks for your comment bro.

  6. Thanks. Those are very vague questions so I’m not sure how to answer it. There are lots of tips in my past podcast episodes so you can check those out. Great place to start.
