4 Tips on How to Cash in on Your Blog - Articles Surfing
Here are 4 tips on how to cash in on your blog. Blogging is a great way to go because the startup costs are next to nothing, and the benefits are limitless.
First you will need to decide how you want to monetize your blog so you can get the profits rolling in.
Blogging can be so lucrative that once you get operational, it is a real possibility that you can put yourself into the position of actually quitting your regular job and let technology do the work for you. There is nothing like getting up in the morning and toddling over to your computer to see how much money you made while you were sleeping. What a concept!
So let's see a few ways you can approach your blog strategy:
Use Google Adsense Ads
A fast way to get your blog making you money is to use Google Adsense. You can have these ads on your blog in a matter of minutes once you learn how to whip up an ad with the dimensions and look you want. When you have Google ads on your site, every time a visitor to your blog clicks on one of the ads you get paid. Some bloggers and webmasters make the vast majority of their overall earnings with Adsense.
Down the road, if you happen to have a very successful blog in terms of the number of visitors, this will put you in a position to actually sell other advertising space on your blog, which can also be a very lucrative proposition.
If you give out a lot of genuinely valuable information to your readers and are really working to help them, you can put a donation button on your site and yes, people really do make donations sometimes for ten dollars and a one hundred dollar donation is not unheard of.
Be an Affiliate - Sell Other's Products
This is a good way to start out. When you pick a product or products you'd like to showcase on your blog, most of the owners of the product will provide the graphics and of course a link to the sales page, which is very helpful if you don't know how to write copy yourself. Clickbank and Commission Junction among many others have products you can market. You just sign up and pick the product or products you want to sell on your blog. The commissions on digital products tend to be higher, somewhere in the 50% to 75% range. This author currently has a blog for a digital clickbank product, and it is one of my top producers.
Market Your Own Services on Your Blog
This is a great way to go if you are a graphic artist, a good article writer, a photographer, or have any other skill at all you can market. You can devote your entire blog to that topic and make money from orders from people needing your services. You can make a very good income using this approach.
These 4 tips are very effective ways bloggers are now using to make money. And always, if you are a trail blazer and you have a unique idea you think will work, by all means give it a try.
