Ways Earn Money – How To Monetize Your Blog
There was a time when blogs were essentially online diaries or a hobby for people who were bored. Now every single blog owner is sitting on a form of passive income. While you might not have the next big internet startup on your laptop (like Facebook), you have the potential to make a fair amount of money if you’ve got enough website traffic. The best part is, you can do this all in your spare time. So, you don’t have to sacrifice shifts at work or time spent on other commitments. Here are a few ways earn money with your blog.
Pay per click advertising
Pay per click (or PPC) is a model of internet marketing in which advertisers pay a fee each time one of their ads is clicked. Search engines like Google and Bing allow businesses and individuals to buy listings in their search results. These listings appear alongside, and increasingly above the non-paid organic search results. The search engine is then paid every time a user clicks on the sponsored listing. This service is available for your blog through PPC Pro or through Google AdSense. Once you sign up, your chosen PPC management site will place a simple code on your website. That will identify the content of your site and start displaying relevant advertisements. You get paid each time someone clicks on the ad.
Sell ad space
By easily incorporating Google AdSense onto your website, you can instantly make money from advertising on your website. AdSense only places relevant ads on your niche site. And, you can customize the appearance of the ads so they fit in with the style of your website.
Alternatively, you could sell ad space directly to companies that are relevant to your content. Big companies are always looking to sponsor blogs because it’s another way of getting their product out to a wider audience. You get paid depending on how many visitors you get. So, you stand to make a lot of money if your website is popular. On the other hand, if your site doesn’t get a lot of traffic, you can’t expect to earn as much either. Once you’re more confident, you can set a direct price for your ad space.
If you have a strong following of loyal readers, who trust your opinion, through affiliate marketing is one of the good ways to earn money. Say your website focuses on fitness or makeup tips; you could try out products that are relevant to your website, and if you like them you endorse the products to your subscribers. If your audience is interested in the product, then click on an affiliate link, and you get a split of the sale price if they purchase the product. Amazon Associates is a good option for this, as you’re more likely to get paid. Unlike other affiliate links, Amazon Associates pays you if the person you referred buys anything from them within 24 hours, not just the product you recommended to them.
