Everybody wants to make some extra money in their spare time; blogging seemed to be a comfortable and entertaining method to make money. With a blog, you can make money online while you write about what you know. Now it’s fun to make money with a blog but it’s isn’t easy at all. Most of the time bloggers get confused on where to go and what system will earn them real money?
Blogging isn’t a job; it’s like a small business. You have to spend some time to develop it and in the long run, it’ll earn you cash so have 100 tons of patience! Here are some of the ways to make money with a blog with guidelines.
Pay per click (adsense)
Pay per click (PPC) is the easiest method to make money online and you can make money from the first day of blogging. Adsense is the most popular of them all. With PPC, you have to put an ad code on your blog which will show third party ads relevant to your blog topic. When people will click on the ads, you’ll be credited with a small amount of money.
PPC needs no requirements; the more traffic you get, the more clicks will be achieved and the more money you’ll make. Visitors coming from search engines are more likely to click on ads. Here’s a heat map from adsense which will help you to understand, where people click most, (the deep colored parts are hot spots of your blog)
Some of the PPC services are Google adsense, bidvertiser, AdBrite. There are other services, that don’t require you to have an ad spot. The system will transform text from your post into clickable ads. Some of the programs are: Kontera, InLinks, TextLinkAds.
A paid review is an opinion about a product, site or a service. Now days, people are not interested in banners but they are more likely to listen to their friends talking about a product. For an example, if I pay $10 to write an honest review about BlogKori on your site, a number of people will be attracted to my blog.
There are sites that connect advertisers and bloggers together and you can find an opportunity related to that service. Usually these sites accept a blog that’s more than 3 months old and have developed some search rankings. Some of the popular among them are: PayPerPost, SocialSpark, LinkWorth.
Paid reviews are nice for beginner and established bloggers and you can make a minimum of $5 per review. It’s way better than PPC.
In today’s multi level marketing, companies pay to people who help bring more sales. Affiliate marketing is a way where you have to sell a product in order to earn the commission. It works like this: you have a blog about camera and you found an affiliate program who sells memory cards. After signing up for the site, they’ll give you a special link. When customers will buy using the link, the company will know that they’re from your reference and they will pay you the commission.
Now this process isn’t that easy how it sounds. You can do well with niche sites (a site with one single topic) the commission isn’t for each clicks you provide, the commissions are generated by each sales. The good part of affiliate is, most of them are high paying and you can make a lot of money with affiliate commissions.
ClickBank is one of the popular services for affiliate marketing and another popular site is PepperjamNetwork.
When you have traffic, you can attract direct advertisers to your blog. You can create an advertise page and describe the terms and your blog stats. As a blogger, you must work hard on building your blog before you approach on this method. You have to show a nice status of your blog before you can bring them in. The benefits of direct ads are, you keep all the profit and there is no middle man.
As a start, you can ask some of your friends and contacts to put an ad on your blog, or you can also put an affiliate ad to fill up the empty space. Direct advertising may not pay off when you’re new on it but in the long term this will be the biggest income source of your blog.
Money making takes time
You can’t just put ads on your site and expect the cash flowing to your account; money making with a blog is hard and even harder if you’re new on this. You have to build a helpful blog and wait for them to come, when you have regular visitors in your blog, you can then monetize the traffic.
