So now, you have a blog. Or maybe you are planning to start one. But are you ready to make real money with it?

Let's see how to build a successful blog and how you can monetize it.


  • How to make your posts better
  • How to write better headlines
  • How to get subscribers
  • Why pay-per-click advertising is a bad idea
  • 10 ways to earn real money with your blog

We have collected the best practices, what works in 2017, and what works for blogs with fewer visitors.

Some people are making good money through blogging, but how are they doing it? 10,000 or 20,000 unique visitors a day gives plenty of opportunity to monetize your blog, and it’s fairly easy. But what if your blog has only 1,000 subscribers? The good news is: there are still ways to make money with your blog, and even build your subscriber base, 

Forget about the old methods like Google Adsense, pay-per-click ads, and banners. I will tell you why they are horrible for blogs.

I show you something different. These tactics work; they are fresh, they are exciting.

This course is a slide-based: animated presentation with voiceover. No talking-head, no screen shots. And I have an accent. People say they can understand me, but my English is not perfect (see in the promo video). If you are one of them who don't like my accent, the whole course is downloadable in pdf.

These tactics are not get-rich-fast formulas. Making money out of your blog requires constant work, blogging, and taking care of your subscribers.

You can find similar money-making methods on the internet if you do your research. I collected:

  • Which methods work, 
  • What are the latest trends, 
  • And how people can use them successfuly

Earl Peters: I love how the ideas are kept in terms I can relate to. I don't need a degree in web design or marketing to understand it. The examples are clear and relevant, and the segments are broken into key concepts that are easy to digest. Nicely done!

Emma Jones: Clear Concise and to the Point

Ddd: very very helpful corse thanks

Blog ads suck. They may have worked 15 years ago, but they are not a smart choice now.

Why You Should Avoid Pay-Per-Click Ads

Blog Ads don't typically pay you very well. Let's see how you can still earn with them.

Blog Ads distract readers' attention from your content, and pull them into their content (the ad)

Blog Ads Are… Hey Look – Squirrel!

Can you believe it? Your conversion rate will decrease because of the ads.

Blog Ads Are a Conversion Killer

Good job if you put a CTA in your blog. But ads are actually act like another CTA.

Blog Ads Undermine Your Blog’s Goals

Like it or not, blog ads are a constant sales pitch living on your blog.

Blog Ads Make You Look Sleazy

When you host ads on your blog, your face could appear next to a product or company you don’t endorse, or even like

Blog Ads Can Hurt Your Reputation

Many factors can slow down your blog, from plugins, to hosting issues, to – you guessed it – ads

Blog Ads Put Your Blog in the Slow Lane

If you try to monetize your blog through ads, your readers are the products. And you’re selling them to Google for a few cents on the dollar.

Blog Ads Sell Your Readers For Cents

When you place ads on your site, you don’t control the look of each ad, the copy on the ads, or where the click takes you

Blog Ads Force You to Give Up Control of Your Content

Approaching an influencer when your blog has ads is like attending a networking event and handing out business cards with a coupon for a local steak house on the back

Easy and inexpensive marketing advice for small businesses

I’m Krisztina Rudnay, and I’m originally from Hungary. I have spent the past 11 years as a marketer for small and medium sized businesses, and as an entrepreneur myself.

I took a job with a medium sized company to come to the United States and lead a new product launch. So I closed my own company in Hungary, came here for a client who now has the top-selling product in their industry, and stayed.

I was thinking about how I can help the most with my marketing experience, when I realized that most entrepreneurs and small business still don’t do a lot of marketing. For many, nobody ever taught them how to do it, and they think it’s something difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. 

In my courses, I cover different marketing tools from content marketing, through sales funnels to social media advertising. They are easy to understand and integrate in your business.
