You’ve heard about all of “those people” who make money just by blogging, right?
It’s time to join in on the fun! Here are 5 super easy ways to monetize your blog:
1. AFFILIATE MARKETING
Add links to another business’s affiliate program on your website. When someone clicks on one of those links and makes a purchase, you earn a commission. Easy enough, right?
2. GOOGLE ADSENSE
Long story short, you display ads on your website and make money two different ways:
1. Impressions – earn a set dollar amount per page view.
2. Clicks – someone clicks on an ad on your site, you earn money.
3. AN ONLINE STORE
Sell something. Anything!
1. Products – you know… stuff, that usually comes in a box, and has to be shipped.
2. Services – what are you good at that you can offer to help someone else with?
3. eProducts – things that can be downloaded, like eBooks.
4. PAID REVIEWS
Have you ever dreamed of someone paying you to write about something you love? This is your opportunity! Whether you want to take an exotic vacation or try out the latest video game thingy, this is your opportunity to do just that and get paid to do it!
5. BANNER ADs
Place a “banner” style ad on your website and get paid, typically on a monthly basis. It’s kind of like someone paying you to rent a little space on your site. Super easy.
What’s the catch? There isn’t one, really. But there is a key to success…
TRAFFIC. LOTS AND LOTS OF TRAFFIC ON YOUR WEBSITE.
The more people who visit your site – the better your chances that someone will view a specific page, click on a link, or make a purchase. It also increases the likelihood that a company will want to place an ad on your site.
If you’re serious about monetizing your blog and want to earn some real money, then it’s time to get serious with your marketing plan and make some big things happen!
PS – Please, please please… don’t forget to set up Google Analytics before you get started.
