Blog

If you know the steps to take and you utilize those steps, your blog could prove to be a money making magnet. Blogs first started as a form of a diary online. Since then blogs have transformed to meet an array of needs including an easy form of income. Regardless of what your niche is or how you use a blog, these five steps will help to generate income from it.

1. Affiliate Marketing:

This is not only the easiest way to start making money from your blog but it’s one of simplest ways. Begin by choosing an affiliate program from the various popular affiliate networks. You can post a review about the product and include the affiliate link. Post ads in the sidebar including a link to the product. Implementing affiliate marketing is a sure fire way to draw income from a blog.

2. Selling your own Product:

Create your own product to meet the needs for your niche. Add it to your blog to generate income. Having established a level of trust with your readers your product will draw interest from them. This makes selling the product through your blog a smart idea.  Provide the link to the sale’s page directly from the posts. Displaying graphic ads in the sidebar gives it presentation and will generate interest.

3. Contextual Advertising:

Another way to generate money from your blog without much participation is through Textlinks. Once you sign up for Textlinks or a similar service your blog posts will have certain words automatically hyperlinked to it. These links will redirect the reader to the advertiser’s website. Whether the visitor purchases something or not, you still get paid because they clicked on the link. This is different from affiliate marketing where you only receive a commission if a sale is made.

4. Other types of Advertising:

Pay per click advertising programs such as Google AdSense will provide you with a code to add to your website. This will allow ads to be displayed on the sidebar of the blog. When a visitor clicks on a link you receive payment. Depending on your niche it may be a few cents or a few dollars. Although these ads do not appear in the body of your post they are based on your posts content. .

5. Get Paid for Reviews:

Getting paid to do reviews is an option once you have traffic coming to your blog. First find an advertiser through the numerous networks that link bloggers and advertisers together. Once you find an advertiser that has a product or service relevant to your niche, post a review and receive a flat rate fee.

As you can see there are many different options for you to begin making money from your blog. Try one or all of these ideas to find what one works best for you and start making income from your blog today.
