Mom blogging industry is growing rapidly. There’s no one denying that.

But here’s the sad truth: almost 90% of the mom bloggers never make even a penny from their blogs.

I observe a common pattern in successful bloggers and that is: they don’t focus on earning more money. They focus on building relationships with other bloggers and that’s why they are successful.

Let’s first quickly discuss some of the successful mom bloggers so you will understand what it takes to build a better blog being a mom.

How to make money as a mom blogger?

make money as mom blogger

Although there are a ton of ways to make money as a mom blogger, but I highly recommend you to give a try to the following 4 money making strategies.

  1. Offer services
  2. Create and sell online courses
  3. Recommend products that you love
  4. Offer 1 on 1 coaching

Let’s now talk about each one of them so you can easily find what works best for you and your audience.

4 proven ways to make money as a blogger in 2017

#1. Offer services

Let me tell you the quickest way to make money as a mommy blogger: start offering services.

You can make money from day 1 if you offer services to your audience.

There are so many mom bloggers out there who offer freelance services like writing, designing, private coaching, speaking engagements etc.

So what kind of services can you offer?

Well, it depends majorly on your niche (read industry).

If you’re a food blogger, you can get contracts to supply different dishes for occasions to a specific client or a restaurant. If you’re a photography blogger, you can take your client’s birthday photos or wedding photos to make money literally from day 1.

Are you getting me?

If you’re so desperate to make money as a mom blogger from day 1, offering services is probably the fastest way to succeed.

#2. Create and sell online courses

Online courses are becoming insanely popular.

Why?

They offer a TON of value to the students who enroll. They are also great for making huge profits.

Just have a look at Ramit Sethi. Then there’s Derek Halpern and Amy Porterfield.

All these guys make millions of dollars every single year by offering courses to their students. Have a look at the following screenshot which shows that Ramit Sethi from I Will Teach You To Be Rich (aka IWT) makes 95% of his income from selling online courses.

Here’s my question to you. You are already teaching some useful things through your content in your blog. Then why not create a paid online course?

Just set up some x-week course through automated emails. And how much you can get profit by selling your online courses depends on your brand authority, how many people purchase your course etc.

For a sample, you can try offering free pdfs which has valuable content to gain trust from the users and also to know how many are really interested in your products.

#3. Recommend products that you love

Pat Flynn – whenever I hear about affiliate marketing, the guy “Pat” comes to mind almost always.

He’s the one who earns over $100,000 every single month from affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is undoubtedly the best way to make passive income from your blog. But the only thing about affiliate marketing is that it is NOT easy. It takes a lot of time to master the art of selling.

Here are few affiliate marketing tips just in case if you’re thinking about using it to make money as a mom blogger.

  • Focus on promoting only those products that you love and use. That way, you can better explain your audience why should they buy the products that you recommend. Make sure to use affiliate links (and disclose them with a quick note saying “this is an affiliate link and I make some money if you buy using it”) while promoting those products.
  • Write product reviews. Don’t be too generic. There are a lot of bloggers like Anil Agarwal who are successfully making money by writing great product reviews. Remember if you write complete positive about any product then you lose trust of your customers. Write your genuine opinions. If you have used that product then you can show video or images if any problem you faced (to show your audience how the products help).
  • Find what other successful bloggers are doing. Find out how they are promoting their affiliate products. You will learn a lot!

#4. Offer 1 on 1 coaching

Donna Merrill is a great example who’s monetizing her blog by offering “mentoring” aka 1 on 1 coaching.

So how it works?

You offer 1 on 1 coaching usually through a Skype call, email chat or directly (depending upon your convenience) and you get paid upfront. Sounds amazing, right?

Offering 1-1 coaching is the BEST way to make money when you’ve loyal audience.

It helps you in 2 ways.

  • To make more money (in your spare time)
  • To help people to build successful business

It’s a lot like “fun with profits”, right?

Final verdict about making money as a mom blogger

Making money as a new blogger is NOT hard. There are a ton of mom bloggers out there who are successfully making money in their spare time. Not only blogging allows you to spend quality time with your family but it also helps you earn some extra income. So why not give it a try?

      Keep rocking Ileane.

  4. Hi Rahul,
    I have seen the blogs of Donna, Sue, and Smith. And their blogs are really good; I often visit their websites to learn some new things.
    In the end, i would say, you have done a great job. Surprise to know the number of Mum bloggers! But the majority of them are not making any profit out of their blogs. That too is really a surprising information.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hey Robin,

      All of them have really great blogs with a TON of useful content. They all know how to turn normal visitors into loyal audience.

      That’s how they became successful mom bloggers, there’s so much to learn from them, isn’t it?

      Glad you liked it. Thanks for stopping by!

    2. Hi Robbin,
      Thanks for your kind visit and for the wonderful feedbck.
      Nice to know that you know all these amazing bloggers Rahul mentioned in this post.

      Have a great day
      Best

  5. Thanks so much for including me with Ileane and Donna – they are the best!

    Great post about making money – a lot of bloggers don’t even think about what they are going to sell when they start their blog.

    Sue

    1. Hi Sue,

      Yes, selling is not a piece of cake for most bloggers because they are afraid of it. Once you get past the pain of selling, you can attract a ton of money.

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

      I’ve been a regular reader of your blog for years and I really love what you do.

    2. Hi Sue,
      What a joy to see you here again.
      I appreciate your valuable time.
      As you mentioned many in this field especially the Mom. bloggers and not aware about this monetization process.
      Thanks Sue for dropping by and for the valuable feedback.
      Have a great rest of the week.
      Best

  10. Hi there Rahul!

    Your post was very interesting, especially creating and selling online courses. Your statement about bloggers already providing information and so why not offer a course, was great and I’m sure will resonate with many other bloggers!

    I’m definitely not a mom, but I can appreciate the points that you put out as they can be applied to everybody!! I’m sure that this article will have helped changed the course of the lives of at least a FEW bloggers, and that’s amazing!

    I’m actually a follower of Sue (her articles are great!), and have read some of Donna’s as well. Thanks to you, i’m now really eager to check out Ileane’s blog as well! I’m sure i’ll learn heaps!

    Thanks again Rahul for the interesting article!

  12. I am not a mom and not even a mom blogger. But this article has helped me to open my eyes to this world, really the strategy is focused on people, and not in money, looks like the people are interested in being involved in relationships, so the money comes naturally.
    Please, see my blog, sorry, not in english.

  13. Hi Philip and Rahul,

    1st off, excuse the blank comment mistakenly made by an old Dude who wasn’t paying attention…

    Secondly, thanks Philip for giving Rahul a platform for his concise description, and examples, of how ‘Mommy’ bloggers can make money with their blogs.

    As Taiwo Emayosanlomo commented, Rahul’s advice aren’t limited to Mommy’s and will work equally well for any gender of bloggers, with selling services being the fastest way to make some profits.

    Although I’m already a big fan of Donna Merrill, interesting links for 2 other bloggers I’m going to check in on. Thanks,
    Edward

This post is inspirational for moms, but mom or not, everyone can use these ideas from these highlighted bloggers. Enjoyed your post!

  16. Hi Philip,
    Very pleasant to read this post by Rahul. I do know of many “Mom Bloggers”, some of whom were mentioned in this post, Donna Merrill, and Sue Dunlevie. When starting out a blog you do have to learn all about blogging, including making money by offering services that your target market is interested in.
    Creating and selling online courses that people want to buy. Affiliate marketing by recommending products that you love to use in your business. Coaching on a 1 to 1 basis or in a group type setting. Very informative article!

  17. Hey Rahul Kuntala,
    Thanks for writing this wonderful post which focuses on mom bloggers making money.
    Though I am not a mom, but the points you highlighted are essential for every blogger who want to make money blogging.

    Thanks for sharing

  19. The best way for moms to make from home is blogging. By following a clear strategy and hardwork, they can make more than enough. A friend of mine earns 2400$ from affiliate marketing alone.
