Methods Bloggers Use to Make Money Blogging: MindMap
Update: this mindmap was created a few months back as I brainstormed on the variety of ways that I see bloggers making money from their blogs. Of course it just scratches the surface – as there are new methods popping up all the time.
There’s also a lot that can be said about each one and how to do it effectively – but the point of this diagram was to show the breadth of possibilities as many bloggers get stuck on one or two methods and don’t see the big picture.
The other thing worth mentioning is that I don’t know any blogger who uses all of these. I’ve experimented with a lot (and experimenting is key because some work better in some niches than others) but today I focus upon a few of them – mainly creating virtual products, advertising and some affiliate marketing and continuity programs (paid community areas).
I hope this is helpful – feel free to share you suggestions/additions/experiences in comments below.
Update: I’ve added some thoughts on the ‘Advertising’ section of this mindmap at https://plus.google.com/u/0/112726038360301567381/posts/VnaZV8xbDB8 (and added 3 more to it)
