To be frank, I have money on my mind when I created this blogging tips blog. It is part of my plan to make money from blogging and that is one of the main reason I created this blog, being the 6th blog I plan to make money from. I am telling you this because I am not like those gurus that claims they don’t intend to make money from their blog in the first place.
So I will be sharing my experience, as usual, so that this blog readers can learn from it. And this time around, I will be sharing with you 5 simple ways to make money from blogging.
Ok, I cut the crap and start to share 5 simple ways to start making money blogging:
#1 Google Adsense
Yes – you can make money blogging by putting Google Advertisements on your blog. To my observation, Google Adsense is the best way to get passive income from blog. All you have to do is put Google Adsense advertising on your blog and then continue with your own blogging. It is that simple but getting your Adsense application accepted might not be that easy – from experience. But once you get your Adsense application accepted, the next thing is to put Google Adsense code into your blog
and start making money from it. Mind you, you need a lot of organice traffic (traffice from search engines) to get optimum result from Google Adsense but surely you can get some cash from it easily by just working hard on your blog.
For me, Google Adsense is working pretty well for me. I got my first Google Adsense check last month 28th, April 2011 but mind you, it took me about 13 months to get to that stage. Getting your first Google Adsense check is a good tip that you’re on the right track.
#2 Text Link Advertising
This is one of the easiest way to make money blogging so bloggers will find it easy to make money from text link advertising. What you need is a blog and then optimize it to have a high SERP, PR and traffic rank. And then you can offer Text Link Advertising (TLA) service on your blog and start making money from it. You can also sell Text Link Advertising trough webmaster forum such as digital point forum or V7Network forum. If you do not have time to sell text link advertising by your self, we can always submit our blog to Text Link Advertise (TLA) broker service. We just need to submit our blog with right info and then leave the rest to TLA broker.
You can use Teliad and LinkWorth as a TLA broker. You may be not make big money but it will be enough to cover your blog web hosting cost for two years.
#3 Banner Advertising
Just like TLA, banner advertising should also be easy to make money with, with blogging. All what you need is a good SERP, PR and traffic rank, then offer Banner Advertising service on your blog and start making money with it. Although, for me on this blog, it is not that easy to make money with banner advertising but I make money with banner advertising with my other blogs linked with affiliate marketing.
I still have plans to use banner advertising, maybe from BuySellAds program or other affiliate programs, in near future to make money with it.
#4 Blog Post Advertising
Blog Post Advertising (BPA) is a good way to make money blogging. In fact, this is one of the most top methods used by bloggers around the world to make money with their blogs. With Blog Post Advertising, which is also known as Sponsored Review or Sponsored Post, you get paid to review product or service on your blog post. In my opinion, it is a great way to make money blogging because while doing this, you are creating useful posts for your blog readers. That is, you can use blog post advertising as source of blog post idea while make money blogging. Like TLA, you can sell blog post adevertising spot by yourself or submit your blog to BPA Brokers.
Some Blog Post Advertising brokers you can use are Linkworth, ReviewMe, SponsoredReview and Blogsvertise. While you might not make thousands with BPA, it is a good source of revenue for bloggers.
Affiliate marketing can be a great way to make money from blogging. Affiliate means that you sell someone elso product and get commission each time people buy the product through your affiliate link. Getting affiliate link and integrating it on your blog isn’t the hard part, but making your blog visitors to buy the product through your affiliate link is the hard part.
Although I do not have any affiliate product to sell here on this blog (at the moment), but I have it on some of my other blogs like my weight loss blog but I am not making much out of it but I know with effective marketing, you can make something out of it.
By monetizing our blogs the right way, it can be a great source of income for us. Boldly, I can tell you that there are successful bloggers who are making up to six figures income from their blogs. Thou, I am not within the rank of those successful bloggers yet, but I am already making some bucks through my blogs and I here, I have shared with you 5 ways you too can make money with your blog(s) and I hope this money making article has been helpful to you especially for bloggers who just start their make money blogging journey.
