Ways to Monetize Your Blog

There are more than a few ways to monetize your blog - in this article I will be covering the ways I, myself have used to a degree of success.

Unfortunately, most people's opinion of blogging these days is colored a little by constant success stories. Blogging is not as easy as some people seem to think. The amount of poor blogs out there far outweigh the decent blogs. At the end of the day blogs are all about internet marketing - no matter which way you look at it. If you use a few simple ways to monetize your blog along with this marketing of your blog you can make some impressive money.

The first tip is probably the most obvious - advertising. I'm not on about advertising your blog here, I'm on about using other people's advertising on your blog. The most common is Google Adsense but personally I do not use them any longer. These ads are simple to create and place on your blog/website. You will need to open a Google Adsense account first ( obviously ) then whenever one of their ads is clicked on your website you earn a small amount of money.

Adsense is one of the more common ways to monetize your blog but there are a lot of other advertising sites out there. If you are good at writing you may want to create your own products and sell them on your website. The easiest way to do this is in the digital form of ebooks ( guides ) on a subject related to your blog. Hopefully this is a subject you are well informed on.

Internet marketing is still one of the effective ways to monetize your blog. I just covered selling your own products on your blog - how about selling someone else's? These products are called affiliate products and they are internet marketers bread and butter. It's really quite easy to find affiliate products that relate to the subject of your blog. Sites like Clickbank offer thousands of products on every subject. There is a lot more to internet marketing than just showcasing Clickbank products on your blog/website. The more effort you put into your marketing the more chance you give yourself of success.

Blogging should be about the love of writing and expressing yourself initially - get that part right and then think about the options above like internet marketing. Popularity of your blog will increase with good quality posts - use the ways to monetize your blog to take advantage of this. Good luck blogging.

There are so many affiliate programs out there. We also need to ensure that whichever ones we sign up for are reputable and don't go contrary to our own values. Good article

I agree Rick, I'd say at least 50% of clickbank products are complete rubbish.
