Blogging Tips and Monetizationn Strategies
The easiest way to make money online from the comfort of your home, is to create a blog. You need to choose a niche that is popular but not too popular because the competition will be brutal. With a click of a mouse you can share ideas, review products, personal stories, or just exchange views on different issues with your readers. The only requirement is devising a strategy and devoting an hour or two a day. You should publish two or three articles a week. You can write product reviews, tips, guides and how to artilces which are extremely popular with readers.
Reviews are perfect for promoting affiliate products and services and they're very effective.
You can use social media for marketing your articles. After publishing a new article you should add your artcie to social media sites like Digg, My Space, Reddit, Facebook, and other popular social media sites. Doing this will increase views to your articles and blog. And it will also increase traffic, sales and readership. There are numerous other tactics you can research to increase exposure to your website.
You can get a free blog through Wordpress or Blogger and both extremely easy to use. You will need to purchase a domain name if you plan on hosting your website or blog with host other than Wordpress or Blogger. I purchased my domains from Go Daddy.
Different Options Available to Make Money With Your Blog
You can sign up for Google Adsense account. Google Adsense delivers text and image ads to websites/blogs. The ads are related to the content of the website. You need to paste a small code at proper locations on a webpage and Google automatically recognizes the page. Google shares the revenue it gets from the advertisers whenever a visitor clicks on your ads.
Google Adsense Alternatives
Infolinks is giving really great eCPM these days and is excellent alternative to Google Adsense.
Kontera is the second best option which provides inline contextual ads.
TNX is a network where you can sell text links automatically on your site (it works great even for PR0 sites) - Highly recommended.
Widget Bucks is a great contextual shopping based advertising network which pays upto %0.50 CPC (which is awesome) and you get $25 free just for signing up.
Adbrite is your second best Adsense alternative (or fist, if you live outside USA) to monetize your website. Keep in mind you may see very little earnings for first 15 days (or even a month) as they gather your website stats.
Clicksor is third best adsense alternative. It provides both inline and text-banner contextual ads for your website. So it's also a good alternative for Google adsense.
Bidvertiser is also a good contextual ad option for your site. They are quite effective and consistent.
Amazon Associate Program
Amazom Associate Program is another excellent way to make money blogging. The Amazon Associate program lets the website/blog publishers promote any product from its inventory by adding a predefined code to their website/blog, You can also choose to promote the best selling products in a particular category. When visitors click on one these product ads and purchases a product, the blog owner will be paid a commission.
Blogads as an impressive tool you can use in order to have better control over the advertisers on your blogs. You can track, analyze and compare your profits with any one of your online agencies. Blogads can be simply specified as an advertising service used for the web logs or blogs. From the total money generated by Blogads, it retains 20% and the remaining money is paid to you through PayPal or checks.
Crispads is another useful network focused on the blogs. You can put your ads in their blogs using Crispads. You can move through their RSS/ATOM feeds that help boosting revenues.
Tagword - It is similar to Blogads because you select the ads and their price. Users can place their text-based ads in the site within minutes and the ads will be displayed instantly on the website.
Affiliate programs can help you earn a lot of money for selected products and services. There are many great affiliate program online. The other day, I also signed up for Link Share's affiliate program to promote their products.
Affiliate commissions for the sales vary depending on the quality of the product, sales and marketing method used. Some of most popular affiliate programs are Clickbank, Link Share and Commission junction.
Text links have emerged to be one of the best money making options that you can use. Rather than disorganizing or muddling your blog with ads, text links are not noticeable within your website. These links can add extra value for your site and will also help to promote the rankings of other sites. These text links are placed in the bottom of the web pages in most cases. The best part of this method is that the publishers send and accept links as the market continues to grow
There many more money making methods available but these are some of the most popular and profitable. You can select two or three to track and analzye the results. Then gradually tweak by adding or removing different programs depending on your needs and tracking results.
