How To Earn from A Blog Website?

There are several ways through which one can actually start earning money from your blogging site. These days options and opportunity of earning have increased manyfold. The various ways through which one can earn money by creating one’s own blog are as below:

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 from the publisher network. There are lots of publisher networks available to monetize your blog. You will get paid per with per click or for every thousand of impressions. Google Adsense, Infolinks, Skimlinks, Chitika, Propeller Ads, PopAds are some of the popular ad publisher networks through which you can monetize your blog.

An affiliate network is another popular way of earning money from a blog website.

A special tracking system will track if your affiliate link made a sale or not.

Direct advertisement

You can sell direct advertisement on your blog. With 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.

Review for 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. 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 these past few years, a lot of things has changed. In 2016, blogging is one of the biggest online businesses which anyone would like to take advantage of it. Being a blogger nowadays no one is solely dependent simply on AdSense for making money online 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.
