Do you want to make money blogging? If you do– you are not alone. The purpose of this article is to show you how to earn money online with a blog. First let me start by sharing my own top strategies that could turn your blog into a moneymaker.
A blog is a very easy way to generate income from home. There are many ways to earn money from affiliate programmes, sponsorship, advertising, to selling your own products. Many people successfully earn healthy incomes from blogging. I’m making a healthy income from earningcare.com, and the site is only 3 years olds.
Advertising is one of the most common ways to raise money. Start advertising once you’ve generated a decent amount of traffic to your blog, you can try AdSense, infolinks, Kontera etc. Simply place the banner or text link on your blog and generally charge per day/month for that exclusive space its totally depends on your blog readers and popularity. Advertisers are looking for monthly page views and unique views. Remember, always had good experiences with your blog advertisers and make sure they’re happy.
Don’t Depend on Ads, Affiliate Programs is one of the most common ways to raise money. I run a variety of affiliate programs on my blogs. You earn per sale, or per lead. The huge benefit of this is once you place the ad on your blog, you’re essentially done. As long as your blog’s generating traffic, the money will come in.You can try Amazon and CJ.
Selling sponsorships is the most popular method bloggers rely on to generate additional income from their blogs.
Some blogging platform
WordPress allows users of all types to customize their blogs using either the pre-designed themes, plugins, CSS, PHP and HTML. Extensions give the user access to extra features. WordPress.org is probably the best way to setup a self-hosted blog. WordPress offers two versions, self- hosted and hosted for you. Some others most popular blog platforms are tumblr, Blogger, TypePad, Posterous etc. Of course, these aren’t the only blogging platforms out there, but they’re definitely the best and most widely used.
No matter which blogging topics and platform you choose, or even if you choose a combination of ways to make money from your blog, there’s still one secret to success; you need to be able to write well and optimized articles for your blog readers. That’s how you build an audience, and of course, the bigger your audience, the bigger your chances to make some serious money blogging.
