Many people would love to know how to make money with a blog. It’s not such a mystery really. If you have nothing to sell or promote you won’t make any money with a blog. It’s pretty simple. And if you have only a small amount of visitors and you are trying to make money with Google ads you will not make money with a blog. I coach people daily and realize a major stumbling block they have when it comes to how to make money with a blog is not knowing where to get the resources to help them do that. Another stumbling block is being hung up on traffic. Although I believe in building traffic I’ve shown my clients time and time again that it’s more about positioning then traffic. If they truly want to make money with a blog. So I’ve put together a great list of resources to help you make money blogging. And a short description how each of these resources can help you to make money blogging. Even if you don’t have a lot of traffic.
I used to use MailChimp and they are wonderful as well. But Aweber email marketing is like a dream come true. You can set up multiple email marketing lists as many as you want. This will benefit you in so many ways. If you’d like to test a freebie for your blog and see how it converts you add a different opt in box for that. Aweber can be customized and you can add your own follow up messages that are scheduled for each new list. It’s been an amazing tool for my email marketing business and just reaching out to my readers. There are times I’ve shared a campaign or product and it’s brought in thousands fairly quickly. A quick example if you only have 20 people on your newsletter and you share an affiliate link that earns $10 and only 10 people buy it you just made $100.00 see how easy that is?

I’ve been nominated for by Circle of Moms for a few awards and they have brought new clients to my blog. I’ve won Top 25 Mompreneur Top 25 Mom Tech and now looks like Top 25 Author. Honestly I’m not a huge fan I know the numbers can easily be manipulated. I’ve seen bloggers with no following get thousands of votes in one day- Manipulated ( let me say at least I feel they are). However I will say that as a direct result of these contests I get pitched all the time for App reviews and more- all paid that have equaled hundreds of dollars in income for my blog. So if you get the opportunity even though it’s a little silly it could mean extra income potential to make money with a blog.
