5 Great Ways to Make Money With a Music Blog

1 Make Money With a Music Blog Promoting Affiliate Products

If you blog, you will not only have the ability to impart some of your knowledge. Blogging also gives you the opportunity to advertise affiliate products. You can advertise with banners. However, it is also a great strategy to use the power of persuasion and sell products through the wording of your posts.

You can sell CD’s or vinyl through companies like Kunaki.com. I have used Kunaki for a couple of years and always had a great experience. I tend to use them at Christmas. It is like a tradition now that I get CD’s printed and made up by Konaki that I give to family and close friends. These CDs are cheap to produce (a little over a dollar per CD) and also look and feel great. I highly recommend Kunaki who also sell vinyl. Therefore, if you want to have your music on vinyl, this really is the way to go.

  • Clothing, Tee shirts, hoodies, baseball caps, etc. There are various companies who can do this for you. One that I recommend is CafePress. However, I would recommend that you look around before you choose a clothing merchandise company to work with.
  • Posters, photographs, signed photographs, etc. You can get these in the usual way. Find a great photography company to work with.
  • Sample packs, templates, presets, etc. I would recommend that you sell these on websites such as We Make Dance Music.
  • Other promotional items such as mugs, coasters, keyrings, etc. Again, look around until you find a company you are happy to work with.
