  1. Sell advertising.
  2. Help sell others’ products (affiliate programs).
  3. Solicit contributions.
  4. Market your services in your blog.
  5. Use a blog to deepen your existing customer relationships.

    Whoa, those some some ‘quick’ tips! But still quality. I think advertising has really grown in recent months also. A really good idea for making money with your blog comes from John Cow dot com –> Sounds a lil strange, but if you know anything about John Chow dot com, then take a look at his site, then Mr. Cow’s site. It is a really good idea because it’s kinda original, but hopefully there won’t be a bunch of copycats! In the course of a week he’s managed to get a lot of good traffic to his site, so people could think about doing something similar if the would also like to make money or get good traffic. Just a thought.
