4 Ways to Make Money as a Christian Blogger

If you already own a Christian Blog, or you want to start a one to create an additional or primary source of income, then this article is important. However, before we go deep into this article, I’m sure that you’re probably asking yourself if the intention of a Christian blog should be to make money or not. Well, if that’s something on your mind at this point, let me refer you to my article on your motives as a Christian Blogger and how it can help you decide whether or not you want to monetize your Christian Blog.

That said, in this article, I will discuss three major ways to monetize your Christian blog are advertising, affiliate marketing, and selling products. Each one has its pros and cons and highly depends on what type of Christian blog you have.

1. Advertisement Networks/Agencies

Here, advertising networks like Adsense, Mediavine and AdThrive work with advertisers that are willing to pay top dollar for exposure to your readers. Depending on how much consistent traffic you have, this is a very lucrative source of passive income. Mediavine's  application threshold is 25k sessions within a 30 day period, and if you ever have any questions, please reach out at  [email protected].

We have different ads network like Google adsense, media.net, mediavine, ezoic, adcash etc

The best is mediavine in terms of revenue, but you have to get about 50,000 users averagely a month, to be able to join them.

Google adsense is quite popular than every other ads network put together.

Ezoic is another great one,. You must have an average of 10,000 users monthly to be able to join. This is one reason why Adsense is still the best for any new blogger to try out.

If you are applying for Google adsense and you need some help, you can read this article on how to get Google AdSense Approval for Nigerian Blogs.

There are ills to display ads.

1. If you get Nigerian users majorly, the revenue will be as much as getting traffic from 1st tier countries (canada, US, UK etc)

2. Also, the more the traffic, the more the revenue.

3. Ads can be annoying to users, especially if it has nothing to do with the post being read.

2. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is when a Christian blogger promotes third-party products and services on their blog. By using an affiliate link, a hyperlink that leads to the third parties’ products and services, you receive a commission every time somebody makes a purchase. It’s a main stream of income for bloggers and works really well for people with mommy blogs, interior design blogs or food blogs. Because their readers essentially are looking for the products and services. Affiliate marketing can be a great source of income but it is harder for bloggers that write about faith, which falls more into the ‘lifestyle’ category.

3. Product Sale

Products are considered the best source of income for bloggers. This is because they are 100% owned by the blogger, which means every cent goes into their own pocket. While it takes some work to create products, they can be very lucrative. They can take many forms. While a lot of lifestyle faith bloggers create physical products such as t-shirts or merchandise, educational bloggers create e-books or courses to teach their audience a specific expertise. Creating a product can take a while because you have to do a lot of research to find out what your audience is interested in and truly needs. However, if you pay attention to your best performing content and ask your readers the right questions along the way you will eventually figure out a good product to sell. A lot of Christian bloggers create printables, bible studies, books, devotionals and more.

4. Ad Space Sale

 You can sell ad spaces too.



Let me conclude by restating that it is not wrong to make money as a Christian blogger.
