So, after listening to all the hype about blogging out there you decided it’s time you create one of your own as well. But before getting into it or maybe you have already created one and now you are wondering how you can actually make some cash from your blog, right? I can exactly understand that.
So lets just get to it!
There is no one clear-cut way to earn money from a blog. All the methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. But the best thing is you can try many and decide for yourself which one works the best for you. However, one thing to keep in mind is take advantage of any of these methods, you will need to have a steady source of traffic coming to your website. Otherwise, you won’t succeed that easily. So here they are:
1). Advertisement Networks:
Advertisement Networks are the most basic way of earning through your blog. Earnings through Ad Networks are NOT way too much, but are worth it in most cases. How much you will earn through ads depends on how much traffic you are getting on your blog. Ad Networks are not too difficult to get in, and some pay pretty well. What happens here is that after joining an Ad Network, they will give you some code to put on your website and after successfully putting that code on your website, different advertisements will be shown on your website. You get paid some small amount anytime someone of your visitors click on any of those ads.
There is virtually no limit to how much you can earn through advertisements (as long as you are getting limitless visitors and ad-clicks). Google Ad-sense is the leading Ad Network out there, as it pays quite well.
2). Affiliate Marketing:
Affiliate marketing is another method of earning through your blog. What happens here is you apply for being an affiliate of a product. Upon acceptance, you are provided with an affiliate link with your id in it. Now whenever someone buys that product from that link, you get some anywhere from 20-75% commission for the sale.
I’m sure now you know what you’ve got to do. In case if you are too lazy, let me help you here. All you are doing here is promoting others’ products and getting some commissions for your referred clients/sales. There are many affiliate networks you can join, but the best one’s are Clickbank and Commission Junction.
3). Your Own Product:
Another way you can earn through your blog is to create your own product and sell it for some price. If your blog is about something that interests you then you can easily create your own product after some researching. This is a great way of monetizing your traffic, and people who buy from you today will definitely buy again from you if you give them something of value in return. This is all about relationship with your audience.
4). Renting Space:
You can also rent space on your website for advertisers to advertise on. Although this is really great method of income, but it requires that you have a authority blog with some huge amounts of traffic. The reason why you earn more by renting space than Ad Networks is that there is no middle-man between you and the advertiser.
