If you are wondering how to earn some cash from your own blog, then here we are going to share with you some of the most effective and easiest ways to start making money from your blog.
Join an Advertising Program
There are many advertising programs available for bloggers to join. One of the most popular online advertising programs and possibly the easiest to set up on any blog is Google AdSense. Google AdSenseoffers a variety of pay-per-click text, display, and video advertising banners which can easily be added to any blog by simply copy and pasting code into your blog.
With a bit of effort, experimenting, and tweaking you can definitely make some money with Google AdSense. Though it does have some drawbacks, it takes a lot of traffic to make some decent money with Adsense or If you’re selling your own product or affiliate products then you want to see what is being sold in your Adsense ads, chances are it will be in direct competition with your own products.
Also it takes traffic away from your site and you are rewarded with a few cents, some people wonder if it is really worth it however it is still one of the best and most popular advertising networks.
Affiliate marketing is one of the most effective ways to earn money with your blog. Affiliate marketing means that a 3rd party has a product and they let you sell the product for a commission. Most will have marketing material and squeeze page templates that you can take and use to help sell the product. Some parties simply require leads and will do the customer follow ups, saving you a lot of work!
The important fact is, you don’t need a big follower list or large number of blog readers to start making good money. As long as your products or those you are promoting are targeted to your blog readers you can get a decent conversion!
Write and Sell an E-book:
If you publish quality articles on your blog, you may have a group of loyal readers who are eager to read whatever you publish. So if you have established yourself as an expert in your blog’s niche, then there is a healthy chance readers will want to read more from you especially if it is not published on your blog.
Many will happily pay to have a collection of your best content in an eBook even if it is available for free on your site. Crazy I know but true. You can take advantage of that position by writing an e-book and offering it for sale on your blog to your readers.
Another way to make money from your blog is to enrich your blog with tons of useful, free content and ask the visitors nicely to make a donation if they enjoyed it. You will not get donations from every visitor but you will get some people who will feel grateful for your help and information and will happily donate.
You can do this by setting up a PayPal donate button in your sidebar or at the end of your post content, whether it is a video, audio or article. The visitor can click the button and then choose what amount they’d like to donate to you.
Become a Professional Blogger:
Today many blogs and blog networks are hunting for excellent article writers to author their blogs or write keyword rich posts to be used as guest posts on other people’s sites. Most of them are paying good money to writers, you can apply to writing jobs to increase your income from your blogging.
