Thinking that you have what it takes to build a high profile blog and earn money with it; is one thing and actually doing it, is completely another. This doesn’t mean that you can’t rise to fame and prominence in the world of blogging, and earn big dollars with it.
If you play your cards right, there is a big chance that you will be able to pull off an income from the blog, no matter how big or small it is. Following are some ways that you can use to make money from your blog.
Through Google’s AdSense
Google’s AdSense is often the best choice for bloggers when it comes to generating an income from their blog. Bloggers put up advertisements on their blog with this method, by copy pasting the code provided through AdSense. Fairly simple and not requiring any technical know-how, Google’s AdSense is one of the biggest advertising networks that you can make use of.
Through Amazon Associates
Bloggers often use this method of making money online, especially those who focus is on shopping and various products. In your blog, there will be a link attached to a product or service and when people click on it, they will be taken to Amazon’s site. The affiliate program allows bloggers to earn a portion of the sale when the people visiting their blog make a purchase through the link provided.
The Amazon Associates Program isn’t the only one available in the market, although being the biggest one, this will give you access to a much wider network and allow your blog to find its proper and exact niche very easily.
Making more money from your blog can also be done through private ad sales and sponsorships. Remember, your blog will have to be well known and established first, in order for that to happen and you will have to work hard to get to this level of online money making. Why? Private ads aren’t like AdSense adverts, meaning that you will have to look for them in the exact same way that the advertising staff of magazines approach companies for ad placement in their pages.
The requirement to sell private ads on your blog is sufficient amount of traffic or visits to your blog. You will also have to convince the company that the services or products they have on offer match the topics you write about in your blog.
Essentially bloggers provide their readers with information for free, but another way to make money from your blog and expanding on whatever you write about is by writing an e-book and selling it on your blog. One thing to remember is, your readers won’t buy any content that you have previously given away on your blog, so the contents of the e-book must be what you haven’t provided on the blog.
An example of this is, a short e-book featuring unpublished recipes if you write a cooking blog.
A considerable amount of dedication and focus is necessary before your blog can turn into a project through which you can earn a significant amount of money while sitting at home.
