When you look for different ways to make money online, you will come across a particular method that everyone recommends. This method is to create a blog, promote the content, bring visitors and then make a passive income online.
I completely agree with the fact that having a blog can help you make a lot of money online but it doesn’t happen overnight. You will have to work hard for a few months on your blog to write the best content and bring a lot of visitors to your blog. These things doesn’t happen within days, but once your blog starts picking up pace, you can implement various monetization strategies on your blog.
Today, we are going to see some easy ways using which you can earn more money with your blog without irritating your blog readers.
Easy Ways to Earn More Money With Your Blog
Infolinks is considered as one of the best Google Adsense alternatives but it’s much more than an alternative. I would consider it as a companion.
If you use Google Adsense on your blog and making a regular income from it but you can’t seem to increase the revenue, then try implementing Infolinks as well on your blog.
As we mentioned in the Infolinks review article posted a few days ago, Infolinks works perfectly well alongside Google Adsense and in some cases, it might give you better results!
Since Infolinks is an in-text advertising network, it won’t hamper with the Adsense ad blocks and won’t irritate your readers at all. So if you haven’t applied to become an Infolinks publisher, I recommend you to do it right now.
Note: Once your application is approved, don’t just start activating all the ad codes on your blog, otherwise it will look clumsy. The best ad formats to implement are In-text, In-fold and In-tag and in some cases, you can use In-Screen ads as well.
2. Make Money With Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate Marketing is one of the few and best ways that you can make a lot of money with. The main reason, I am saying affiliate marketing is one of the best is because it doesn’t depend on how much traffic you can drive. It depends on how relevant and targeted traffic you can drive to your posts.
With Affiliate marketing, you can promote a lot of different products and services on your blog that might interest your readers. You can join the web hosting affiliate programs that pays high commissions or you can promote various WordPress themes or plugins.
There are lots of affiliate programs for WordPress niche, so if you blog about WordPress then you won’t have trouble finding products to promote.
If your blog is in a different niche then you don’t need to worry because you can find products for your niche by looking for them on different affiliate networks like Clickbank and ShareASale.
3. Banner Advertising
When you get tons of visitors on your blog but you are still not able to make the expected amount with Google Adsense, then you should try selling ad spaces on your blog.
There are advertisers out there who are looking for active blogs to advertise their products on. You can either approach these advertisers directly or use an advertising network like BuySellAds to find advertisers for you.
With BuySellAds, you will be able to sell a number of ad spaces on your blog for a fixed amount. You can charge what you feel is right for advertising on your blog. However, when you use an ad network, you will have to pay a percentage of your earnings to the network. (In the case of BuySellAds, the payment is 25% of your total earnings.)
If you don’t want to pay anything to anyone, then you can use an ad-management plugin like OIOPublisher on your blog to sell ad spaces directly from your blog.
There are a lot of bloggers who make passive income from their blogs by just writing product reviews.
If your website has a loyal readership, then writing product reviews can become one of the most profitable ways to make money with your blog. Depending on your blog’s stats like Domain Authority, PR, MozRank and the monthly traffic, you can charge anywhere between $50-$500 for a single product review.
So if you think that your blog readers might like a particular product, then don’t hesitate in contacting the product owner for the review.
5. Native Advertising
You might have seen some sites showing “Recommended Content” or “Around the Web” below their posts or in the sidebar and when you click on that posts, you are taken to another website. This is called as Native Advertising.
Native advertising is one of the best ways to make money blogging because it helps you earn more money by showing external links on your blog.
These type of advertising works best when your blog attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors per month but if you have comparatively low traffic, then you can go for AyBoll network.
6. Offer Services
If you are good at something, then you can offer to do that task for someone for a fee. Your blog is the best way to promote your services so that you can get new clients.
You can offer a variety of services like:
- Free WordPress Installation Service
- Content Writing Service
- SEO Services
- Designing Services
- Blog Consultation
- And More ….
There are lot of bloggers out there who earns maximum amount of money by offering their services to their readers.
You can utilize your blog to showcase your skills and use it as a portfolio so that you can get more exposure and show your clients what you are capable of. This way you will end up making more money with the help of your blog.
7. Make Money from Referrals
Referral marketing is something that only bloggers who have been online for some months know about. If you have never heard about it then let me explain it to you.
When you promote an ad network to your readers and someone signs up through your referral link, then you will start earning a certain percentage of his/her earnings every month.
This income can be known as referral income and is completely passive because all you have done is referred someone and nothing else.
There are lots of ad networks out there who offers referral commissions. So you can find out those networks by a simple Google Search and refer people and when they start making money, you will start making money!
