This free course is mostly about making money through affiliate offers, but I want you to be aware of the many ways to make money with your blog.
Yes, you’ll make money as an affiliate, but in the future you may want to incorporate some of these other methods.
Read the first lesson about How To Benefit From Blogging
Google is known for its search engine capabilities but they also have a program called AdSense. In this program they allow you to display marketer’s pay-per-click ads on your blog or website.
When your visitors click on any of these links, you make money. The advantage is that you get paid for the click, not the sale so you don’t even need to pre-sell your visitors.
This is a quick way blog for money, but it shouldn’t be your first choice. That’s because if you’ve chosen a good niche and you’re sending highly targeted traffic to your blog, then you should be able to make more money by selling affiliate products.
Sell Advertising & Links
You may also consider selling advertising. You can do this instead of using AdSense or placing affiliate links on your blog. What this means it that you will sell banners and text ads to people in your chosen niche. You may also choose to do what other bloggers do… they sell product reviews, but this can get into copyright territory if it’s not done correctly.
You may consider putting a link on your blog where you present your advertising opportunities. You can also sell your space on blog-advertising networks. You can even sell your ad space via eBay.com or CraigsList.org.
Create and Sell Your Own Products or Services
Ultimately creating and selling your own products or services is the best way to make money blogging. In fact, I consider selling your own products to be the most profitable way to monetize a blog. Instead of promoting an affiliate offer and just keeping a fraction of the profits (generally a 50% commission for digital info products), you promote your own products and keep 100% of the profits.
You can create these products yourself. If you can’t do all the work without help then that’s where outsourcing comes in. You can hire a ghostwriter to create them for you. Or you can even purchase the rights to other proven products (via resell rights or private label rights).
Whatever you choose, you get to keep all the profits.
Use CPA Offers
Cost Per Acquisition or CPA is yet another way to monetize a blog. CPA Marketing is where you get paid when one of your visitors performs a specific action, such as filling out a form.
You can find these sorts of opportunities on sites like Neverblue.com
