Yes! Blogging is not just about letting the world know about what you feel or your experiences for the day. It can be a source of income too! In this technologically advanced society that we are currently living in, the Internet offers a huge potential for earning to bloggers who usually spent a lot of time writing their thoughts out.
But how can you do that? Perhaps you are one of those people who keep a journal for yourself, so that you can write down a piece of your mind everytime creativity strikes. Why not make a business out of that? Of course, just like any other financial endeavor, you should not expect to get a tremendous amount of money just by blogging. However, if done appropriately, you might just be surprised at how much you can actually earn just by giving in to your passion.
Here are some ways on how to make money from blogging. See which one will work for you and start blogging!
There is no question that Google is a big player in the blogging industry these days. Adsense is undoubtedly the best pick of bloggers when talking about placing advertisements on their blogs. The idea is simple, you register with AdSense, paste an ad on your blog, and when your site visitors decide to click on the ad and be diverted to the other page, you earn.
The good thing about AdSense is that the producers of this system have made it pretty understandable, even to beginners, and those who have limited technical knowledge. All you need to do is to copy and paste the code. This is, by far, considered as one of the largest online advertising networks available.
The program offered by Amazon Associates allows you to earn a percentage of the sales when buyers click using the ads in your blog, linking to the Amazon website, and actually make a purchase. However, the catch is, you can only earn money when they buy something. The amount you earn also depends on the product purchased through your link.
This type of program is best for bloggers whose topics focus on shopping and products. If people are in the shopping mood and they decide to visit your site, then it’s your day!
Blogging provides information for free. If you are a writer at heart, writing an e-book and selling it on your blog is a good way to earn money. What generally happens is, the e-book you have written will be linked with the content of your blog, expanding it in a way.
This generally happens when your blog finally reaches the point in which a steady pool of visitors is available. As the blog becomes established, more money can be earned through private sponsorships and sales ads. This works in contrast with AdSense. You have to work your way to getting those private ads.
In order to sell private ads, there is a need for you to go out there and convince a company that your blog has all the capabilities of advertising their services and products, and has a steady amount of traffic. In this way, the topics in your blog should be related to what they are offering.
