Different ways of earning money from a blog website
Starting a blog has become quite easy these days, but a bit difficult to successfully transform it as a full-time source of income.
You will not start earning money overnight just bt creating a blog and writing a few articles on it. You need peoples to come and read your blog.
Obviously today you can install WordPress application on your server and then you can start blogging. But making money from it needs hard work, strategies, and patience.
In this blog post, I am going to tell you different ways of earning from a blog website which is already getting the required traffic.
How To make money from A Blog
There are several ways through which one can actually earn money from blogging. These days options and opportunities of earning have increased manifold.
There are bloggers who have multiple sources of revenue from blogging.
The various ways through which one can earn money by creating a blog are as below:
Monetize your blog with an ad network
This is the easiest and also so popular way of earning money from a blog. You just need to paste an ad code on your blog that is provided by the publisher network. There are lots of publisher networks available to monetize your blog.
You will get paid for per click or for every thousand of impressions depending on the ad network.
Google Adsense, Infolinks, Media.net are some of the popular ad publisher networks through which you can monetize your blog.
If a blog gets sufficient traffic, then they can apply for premium ad networks like Ezoic, Mediavine, Valueimpression, Adthrive, and so on. These premium types of ad networks pay almost 5 times more than AdSense.
Earn from affiliate programs
An affiliate network is another popular way of earning money from a blog. Here you will put affiliate link of other products and when someone buys the product from the affiliate link then you will get a commission as a reward.
A special tracking system will track if your affiliate link made a sale or not. Some of the popular affiliate networks are Amazon affiliate, Shareasale, VigLink, hosting partner affiliates etc. I have already earned with hosting provider’s affiliate.
Direct advertisement and sponsored posts
You can sell direct advertisement spaces, sponsored posts on your blog. In this way, you can take all the revenue. You don’t have to share it with any advertising or publisher network. You will take money for giving the advertisement space for advertisers.
Buysellads, Taboola are two online marketplaces for direct ads. You can join there to get a direct ad. But here they work as a middle man and they will take a portion of your profit. But if you search for brands on Google or on Google business and contact them to approach for ads, then in that case you don’t have to share your profit with anyone.
Review of products or services
You can also get paid for writing paid reviews on your blog. Thus you can earn lots of money. You can add a form on your blogging site for getting paid reviews request.
The more popular your blog is, you can claim more money for a paid review. Once I had written a paid review for a WordPress plugin and I paid for it.
Even a few years back also blog sites were not much known to people or encouraged either. Blogging was considered as another hobby. In the past few years, a lot of things have changed. In this time, blogging is one of the biggest online businesses which anyone would like to take advantage of it.
As a blogger nowadays no one is completely dependent only on AdSense for making money online from their blog and there are various ad networks through which one can earn a huge amount.
Honestly, now it’s time to reorient the traditional methods of making money from blog to adopt a new vision while revising the Blogging related business plan. Depending on contextual advertisements won’t help in making enough money one should try out the direct ad or affiliate advertisement sites.
Instead of having one high paying ad, it is better to have four low paying ad units. Moreover, every site needs to be treated in a different and unique way.
Developing a list of emails may help in making a lot of money by building a solid brand while tempting readers to come back time and again to the site time. Although making money online is not a very easy task initially but with time one can actually find it very interesting and try to find out methods that help in increasing the amount.
These are some of the basic level suggestions provided for a new blogger to start earning money online.
