Make Money from Your Blog
Who does not want to make money from their blog?
One question I have been asked many times by friends and family is How to Make Money Blogging.
I will share some basic information here for beginning bloggers. I will post some more articles in the future with more detailed information on Making Money from Blogging.
At this time I will simply share a few ideas that I personally use to make money from my blogs.
Google Adsense is by far my favorite Blog Monetizing tool. Google Adsense allows you to place their ads on your site or blog and they will pay you a percentage of the income generated from click on the ads. NOTE TO BEGINNERS: Never click on your own ads, EVER. You will lose your Adsense account and you will not be able to get a new one.
Google Advertiser pay Google to advertise their sites. Google will show these ads on your Blog and when your visitor clicks on any of these ads Google will share the revenue. The Adsense program is easy to apply to and free.
Marketing Affiliate products is another method I use on many of my blogs to make money.
Affiliate marketing is very popular and easy to get started. Depending on your blog’s target audience you can find products that will appeal to your visitors and market those products on your blog. With Affiliate Marketing you sign up for the company’s affiliates program and earn a percentage of every sale that is generated via your blog. This is achieved by adding the products banners or text links to your blog with a unique affiliate ID embedded into those links. My mostly used affiliate market place is Clickbank.com.

Direct Ad Sales
Your blog space is prime real estate to advertisers. If you are getting a lot of traffic to your blog then selling direct ad space may be a great option for you. I sell ad space on a few of my blogs. I sell banner ads mainly and this is a great means of income. The process is simple once you establish the worth of your blog’s real estate. Create some appropriate ad spots and let your visitors know those spots are available for purchase. Advertisers will purchase one you have reasonable prices for the traffic you get.
You have a blog because you love to write so why not write for money. They are many advertisers that will pay you to make a post about their product and or website. You can charge bases on your readership level and this can also make good money for your blog. Sponsored post is not one of my favorites but it helps to pay the bills so I will make sponsored post sometimes. You can also join a system like sponsoredreviews.com where advertisers and bloggers go to find each other.
These are only a few methods you can use to make money on your blog. It is always good to do some testing see what work best for you. Every blog is different and some methods will work better than others depending your your blogs niche and readers base.
