How to Make £1000 a Month Selling Guest Posts: Guide to Earn by Monetizing Your Blog

Blogging is one of the ways anyone can get started as a side hustle and earn some income.

I got started back in 2013 with my first ever blog with Google AdSense, however, it didn’t get me to £1000 with just AdSense and later I found out the best way to earn with blogs.

And that’s taking guest posts on my blog/s. I built thousands of blogs over the last decade and eventually started and built one of the world’s best web hosts to support bloggers.

So, you started a blog, and learned blogging, how do you earn from your blog? What are the best ways to make money from a blog?

In this guide, I will write about one of the best and easiest ways to get started with making money.


For that you need a blog, ideally built on the WordPress platform. You will learn it once you read this guide about how to create a Blog on WordPress.

Creating a successful blog that generates income from guest blogging requires a combination of effective content creation, marketing, and monetization strategies.

Below is a detailed guide with tips, strategies, and examples to help you earn £1000 per month from your blog:

Step 1: Choose Your Niche and Audience

1. Select a Profitable Niche

Choose a niche that has a strong demand for guest blogging opportunities. For example, if your blog focuses on digital marketing, there are many businesses looking to publish content on this topic.

2. Define Your Target Audience

Understand the specific demographic and interests of your audience. For instance, if your blog is about small business marketing, your target audience might be entrepreneurs and marketing professionals.


Step 2: Create High-Quality Content

1. Consistency is Key

Publish high-quality content regularly to keep your audience engaged. Aim for at least one well-researched post per week.

2. Guest Post Guidelines

Clearly outline the guidelines for guest posts on your blog. This could include word count, writing style, formatting, and any specific topics you’re interested in.

3. Example of High-Quality Content

  • Title: “10 Proven Strategies for Boosting E-commerce Sales”
  • Word Count: 1000+
  • In-depth research, practical tips, and relevant examples

Step 3: Attract Guest Bloggers

1. Promote Your Blog

Use social media, email marketing, and SEO techniques to increase your blog’s visibility. Engage with your audience to build a community.

2. Create a ‘Write for Us’ Page

Clearly outline your guest post submission process, guidelines, and the benefits of guest posting on your blog.

3. Outreach to Potential Guest Bloggers

Actively reach out to potential contributors in your niche. This could be through email outreach, social media, or attending industry conferences.

4. Create some videos

about how your blog is doing, and what the niche and invite your connections on social media to check your blog. See how I do on Facebook and Instagram


Step 4: Monetize Your Blog

1. Set a Pricing Structure

Determine how much you’ll charge for guest posts. This can vary based on factors like word count, level of promotion, and the authority of your blog.

2. Offer Different Packages

Provide options for guest bloggers, such as basic packages with just the post, or premium packages that include social media promotion and featured spots.

3. Example Pricing Structure:

  • Basic Package: £50 (includes publishing a blog post with references and one social media share on your brand profiles)
  • Premium Package: £100 (includes publishing, social media shares, and a featured spot on the homepage for a week/month.)

Step 5: Build Credibility and Authority

1. Showcase Past Guest Posts

Highlight successful guest posts on your blog to showcase the quality of content and attract more contributors.

2. Collect Testimonials

Encourage guest bloggers to provide testimonials about their experience working with you. Display these on your blog to build trust. You can see how London Business News magazine by Manuela and the team do it. They have recently started a Trustpilot page to get reviews about their guest posting and publishing feedback from clients. It’s new but you get the idea of what type of branding can be done to get more guest posts on a blog.


Step 6: Streamline the Process

1. Use Guest Blogging Platforms

Consider using platforms like WordPress or Medium to streamline the submission and publishing process. I recommend you start a blog on WordPress and use Medium, and LinkedIn to promote the shorter version of blog posts.

2. Automate Communication

Use email templates to respond to guest post inquiries and submissions efficiently. This is exactly how my team at ClickDo does it. You can submit an inquiry at and check the response from Dinesh’s team. Or submit one on and see Manuela’s team respond.

Step 7: Analyze and Optimize

1. Track Performance

Monitor metrics like traffic, engagement, and conversion rates to understand what’s working and what needs improvement. You can use analytics and a tool like Ahref to understand traffic, backlinks and how the site is growing. It’s very important you know the traffic, and domain authority of the site. Guest post buyers will ask for it from you.

2. Adjust Strategies

Based on your analytics, refine your content creation, marketing, and monetization strategies for better results.


Example Scenario

Let’s say you receive an average of 10 guest post submissions per week. If you charge an average of £75 per post, and you publish 15 guest posts per month, you would earn £1125 per month.

Remember, success in content creation and marketing takes time and effort. Be patient, adapt to your audience’s needs, and continuously refine your strategies for the best results.

So what are you waiting for? Start a blog today and earn £1000 per month. Easier said than done, however with determination, you can do this.  If you have any questions about blogging, you can reach me at
