In this article we will take a look at the most popular ones which are also, probably, the most lucrative ones and which can help make a blog successful money-wise. Following are the top ways to monetize your blog.
Using Adsense and other ads
AdSense is a service provided by Google which allows you to place ads on your blog. This is an easy way which can help you monetize your blog. You just place the ads on the blog and earn a revenue each time somebody clicks the ad on your page. No sales are involved and it also involves no effort on your part; you earn a small amount every time one of the visitors of your blog clicks on an ad – the visitor does not even have to buy anything.
Instead of using Adsense, one can also accept ads directly from other sites and earn a monthly income for promoting the other sites on the blog. Another option would also be to use the ad to promote an affiliate offer for a commission.
Add a Shopping Cart
Adding a shopping cart to your blog can help you make money by making it easy for people to buy directly from your site. This is a great option for those who have products to sell. Adding a shopping cart to your own blog will simplify the process of selling to your blog’s visitors. Those who sell their own products or who would be interested in selling other people’s products through their blog should definitely consider this option as a way to make money out of their blog.
Affiliate networks such as Clickbank contain a wide range of affiliate products which one can promote for a commission. Clickbank is a hub for vendors, retailers and affiliate marketers. Once you join the network, you can promote products that are sold on Clickbank on your blog, and earn a profit for each sale that is made through your blog.
This is a great option for those who would be interested in selling but do not have their own products to sell. The most popular products on Clickbank are “how to” ebooks, courses and programs and the advantage is that they cover almost every niche you can think of, so it would be easy to find something that relates to your blog.
Finally, Email Marketing. This is one of the easiest ways to make money through your blog. Having an email list will help you in many ways: for example, it will increase the visits to your blog and can also greatly increase your sales.
Email marketing involves collecting email sign ups through a landing page or a webform on your blog so that you can then send your subscribers daily/weekly/monthly emails with information, offers, articles, updates etc…
