How to Make Money from Blog or Website-Detailed Guide–Part I (for Newbies and Experts)
The commonest question that is posed to me on my blog is how to make money. Almost 57 % of visitors to my blog ask me tips to make money online via the contact form and then there are many others who ask the same question via LinkedIn message box and on Facebook chat.
Need for More Tips to Make Money
My blog is basically about tips to make money and I have around 160+ posts centered on this topic. Despite this, if people are still asking for more tips, it definitely means that they are either not enough tips that are focused on generating an income from blogs / websites or they are finding it difficult to put the tips in to practice.

You should select to market either those weight loss products that have achieved a mark in the industry and have been popular for years together without any wavering in their popularity or those ones that are the current rage.
I would suggest a healthy mix of both types of products.
II] Selling Your Own Products or Services
Majority of the six figure income generating blogs and websites fall into this category. Unless you sell your own products or services, it is tough to consistently generate a steady and considerable income.
My personal experience has reiterated this fact. Though I use almost all of the methods mentioned in this post to generate income via my blog, the bulk of it belongs to my content writing services and ghost blogging services that I offer on hire.
You need not be a writer / blogger to make money from your blog. You could be
