Here’s a list of the 6 Powerful Ways to Monetize your blog–
1. Using Google Adsense
Google AdSense is the best way to earn money by showing ads on your blog. Every time one of your visitors clicks on an ad, you get paid for that. Google collects the money from the advertisers and then cuts you a check or send you the money through paypal (usually every month). This arrangement is really nice because you are dealing with a reputable company that will pay you on time.
You can join Google’s AdSense program by clicking here.
Once you setup your account on Google AdSense, you will be given a code to add to your blog. This code will automatically display advertisements on your blog from Advertisers who are already a part of Google’s advertising network. You may see ads from companies related to your topic, and sometimes you may see ads from large companies that are completely different from your topic.
2. Making money from selling ebooks
The good thing about writing and making money from selling books is that there are already millions of buyers who are ready to buy something they love. For this you need to offer something to your blog visitors, yes I’m talking about ‘value’ here.
You need to offer several short ebooks because they’re priced pretty cheap – usually from $1 to $5.00.
But if you price your Kindle book at $2.00 and sell over 250 copies per month, your total income will be $500.
But do you know that you can make more than $2k alone per month from selling quality ebooks?
3. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is when an online retailer pays you a commission on sales generated from your referrals. To achieve this, you need to join affiliate marketing networks such as Amazon Associates. Then you need to promote the products your audience wants to know about.
For example, in fashion blog you will need to promote products like branded clothes. If anyone buys that particular product from your blog, then you’ll be paid a certain percentage of commission from the particular online retailer.
4. Partner with influencers in product creation
Leveraging the efforts and hard work of influencers could turn out to be the most powerful marketing tool.
To make change in the lives of people, then you must need to build relationships with influencers and leverage their influence to create and launch your product.
Influencers would love to promote your products and hence; more sales.
5. Secure Sponsorships
I consider Sponsorships as a great way to make money from your blog. However, you need the traffic if you’re going to sell it for a significant amount of money. You need to be sure that you’re upfront with your blog readership. Furthermore, google also cares acutely about sponsored links and it can even penalize you if you’re selling links along with penalizing the site that you’re linking to. Thus, you need to be careful with sponsorships.
6. Sell digital products
Selling digital products is another great way to make money from your blog. You can sell any type of digital product on your blog as long as it’s related to your content. Building a webinar to market your product and delivering them through downloadable means will benefit you a lot. Moreover, you’d be surprised at just how much money you can easily make by selling digital products on your blog.
Digital products includes downloadable guides, resources, combination of videos, PDFs, etc.
