Today, I will be talking on three most popular methods you can use to make money from your blog traffic.
Simple Methods to Make Money from Your Blog
1st Method: Google Adsense & Other PPC Ads
Google Adsense is a good and easy way to monetize a WordPress blog but it requires a little more effort. You need to find a specific profitable niche, build a WordPress blog around it, start writing some good content base on this niche, and keep driving traffic to it. Do some basic SEO, backlinking by getting links from other related and authority blogs. Visit other related blogs and leave meaningful and worthy comments on their blogs, or by doing a link exchange with other blogger. The objective of all these is to get more traffic to your blog and more traffic means more clicks, and more clicks means more adsense cash.
2nd Method: Get Paid to Blog
With this method, you create a WordPress blog, write good contents to it and promote it to get more traffic. Then go on to sign-up with Paid Blogging Networks like Pay Per Post or ReviewMe to see what opportunities are available to you. There are several advertisers on these websites that are looking for bloggers who are ready to help them spread the word, and they are willing to pay. So go on with them, write about their services or products, review their products and get paid for it.
3rd Method: Affiliate Marketing with WordPress Blogs
This method is the most sophisticated of them all… you make money with affiliate marketing thru blogging. The whole idea is this; you set up a WordPress blog around a specific niche, put up several content around this niche and drive traffic to it. But what makes the content for this method different is that all your content must pre-sell your visitors to convince them to click your affiliate links. If the visitor make a purchase after clicking your affiliate link, you get commission for the sale.
Although, the above methods of generating cash from your blog is not limited to just those 3 methods. There are so many other ways you can monetized your WordPress blog such as PPM, selling ad space on your blog, and so on.
Ultimately, which model you choose depends on how much time and resources you can dedicate to creating and managing your blogs. Your best bet is to choose a low-investment option at first. When you get the hang of it, you can venture into other blogging models as well.
