If you have a blog of any kind, there are probably a few ways that you can earn a little bit of extra money from it. There are a lot of different things that you can do with both websites and blogs to help earn money and if you have a blog in a particular niche, there are even more things that you can do and more options of making money. The fact of the matter is however that basically anyone can make at least some money from their blog and here are some of the best monetizing techniques.
- Sales of Adverts: A lot of blogs will actually feature advertising and there are a number of options when it comes to this. IF you don’t have too much traffic on your website, then you will have to actually sign up for an advert program such as Google Adsense. Depending on your niche, you can earn quite a lot per click when it comes to this method but if you have enough traffic, you can usually make more money by selling adverts directly to customers.
- Affiliate programs: There are a lot of affiliate programs out there and basically, they are a form of advert. The way that this usually works with blogs is that you will have a link on a blog page to a certain product or service and when someone clicks and buys something, you will earn a certain amount of commission. It depends on the exact program you sign up for how much you can earn, but there are some pretty good programs out there if you look.
- Sell your own products: This is an option that surprisingly isn’t that common. You can actually use the traffic on your blog to sell your own products. There are a lot of options here as you can drop ship products and much more. This is something that again only works really well if you have a decent amount of traffic and your products are targeted to your visitors.
Blogs are a great way to earn a little extra money and using the techniques above, anyone can monetise their site.
