Earning Money From Blogging
The most basic way to make money through blogging is to simply register to an AdSense account and simply copy a few lines of code to add anywhere in your template. AdSense can display almost any type of ad, you know they are AdSense ads as it always displays “Ads by Google” on the lower right corner. They system works based on keywords present on your page, it displays ads based on who is bidding for the keyword. As AdSense is present everywhere online, the CTR (Click through rate) will be much lower then other advertising methods.
Affiliate marketing is another way you can make money from online advertising. This is different from AdSense as you have to go and choose the offers you want to display on the page. The payment is also different, you are not paid out on a single “click” but a complete action, this means that the payout for the action is usually about 100 times as much as paying out on a single click. Affiliate networks offer a wide variety of advertising choices and ways to advertise.
Email marketing is the most unique of these three techniques. With email marketing you don’t have to display any advertisements at all! This way your readers are completely undistracted by ads. What the readers need is an incentive to get them to sign up to your email list, this is where creativity plays a part. Once you have a list built of users who would like to receive your newsletter then start mailing them Affiliate offers through your email system. There are many email systems online which can be had at a very low cost.
These are three simple ways you can make money from your blog. With a little work you can be making money in no time online. Just keep in mind that you want to see your website as a clean and professional place, not filled with advertising.
