Believe it or not, not everyone wants to make money with their blog. Some are simply working to connect with others or to build a brand. However, if your goal is profits there are proven strategies to make it happen.
The most common method for making money with your blog is to promote affiliate products or services. Information-based blogs write educational and informative blog posts about a niche and then combine that information with affiliate marketing tactics like embedding affiliate links in the posts to generate click throughs. In addition to promoting affiliate products, you can use your blog to promote your own products or services.
You can offer coupons and incentives, write copy that links to your sales page or publish advertisements.
You can also offer freebies to build a list and then market to that list.
Finally, in addition to one of the money making methods above, if you have a blog with a large readership, you can sell ad space or make a profit from AdSense-type programs. Advertising revenue can be enough for a blog with a large readership to generate a full time income.
Imagine working only a few hours a day on your blog and spending the rest of your time playing and living the life you want to live. Your blog can generate the kinds of profits you’ve only dreamed of, but not overnight. Start now to get into the habit of good and consistent blogging – and turn it into profits.
