Many people start blogs because they enjoy blogging or they want to make a living online. Well today I will share a few tips with you that you can implement into your blog to earn the even more money. You will be able to earn a lot of money and still preserve the aspect of a high quality blog.
Placing Ads on Your Website
You might know that the number one revenue stream for many blogs is advertisement. Placing advertisements on your website will help you with the expenses and more. I will give you some ideas that can help you. I’ve seen bloggers place adsense ads on their website and think that is enough. Then when time passes by they see they are not making enough and decide to quit everything.
Types of advertisements
A great way to monetize your website is adsense, many others would agree with me. Some advice for you is since adsense pays on a click bases, you should test ads. Test what works on your website because what works on my site might not work with your website. Testing with different colors and ad placements can make a huge difference.
Selling link spaces on your blog can make you more money. If your blog has a nice amount of traffic then you can price your ad link spaces for a higher price.
Private Advertisement Ad Spots Sales
I have seen many blogs do this. On the sidebar they would usually have 6 small square blocks (125 x 125) that they sell for a monthly price. It works and people do buy these spaces. Tip: Don’t go crazy with this placing advertise here banners all over your website because this shows people you are really desperate and makes your blog look very lousy. The advertisers will come to you, it just take some patience.
Make Money Writing Reviews
Another great idea that many bloggers don’t do is write reviews and post it on their blog and also get paid for this. Some bloggers charge $100 – $600 for 1 review post. Of course you don’ want to get carried away with this as well because you can lose readers like this.
In-Text Links Ads
I have actually used these before and they do earn a nice amount of money. A company that I used is infolinks.com. What they do is when you place their code on your website; they will make your text clickable and make you money. About 7 words per page will be automatically hyperlinked and clickable, ready to make you money.
Promoting Affiliate Products
On top of all the advertisements you have on your website. You can also sign up for affiliate products/websites and promote them on your blog and place a small banner on the sidebar or header. You get to keep the money on all the sales.
Opt-In Email Form
If you place on your website an opt-in form and at least get a couple of subscribers a day then you can make money from them. Have respect when doing this, because they are people just like you. If they sense that you are only after their money, you won’t be doing to good. Build a relationship with them, make them trust you and once in a while promote something to them that you have personally used and enjoyed. Don’t sell anything to people that you won’t want to have yourself. You need to keep your subscribers for as long as possible.
