Making Money online from blog is considered quite simple job. But it’s not.
There are many good methods to earn money from blog online. Though, your main focus may be on making money only. But if we’ll focus on making money only then it’ll not last longer. The blog would then lose readers and popularity. However, you can bring new readers to blog by using some BlackHat tactics but it is not helpful. Once Google noticed that you’ll may be banned forever from search results.
It is recommended a blog to be successful if it has good number of returning visitors. It ensures that blog contains unique and quality contents that visitors love to read again and again. This way you can make your blog an authority blog and Google would love it. Never ever try to play with Google. He knows probably everything. There are several ways by which you can promote your blog. Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest etc. can help you to promote your blog. All you need is to do it in right way.
Popular ways to make money online from blog:-
Anyway, I’m here to suggest several ways to earn money from your blog. There are a lot of methods you can find on internet but I would suggest you the best among all in a simple manner. Here we go:-
1. Pay Per Click (PPC) or Cost Per Click (CPC) Advertising
Whenever we talk about making money online, first thing which comes into mind is Google AdSense, Chitika etc. They offer CPC or PPC. These are best ad networks. It is not so easy to get approved there. They have defined many requirement criteria which one should follow to get approved. When I made my first blog on blogger, after writing few posts. I tried to apply for AdSense, They rejected my application for 4 times and finally got banned. CPC or PPC are counted for every click on ads and paid you according to that. This is best method if you can get clicks.
2. Selling Ad Space on Your Blog
This is a profitable method to make huge amount of money. The bet is, your blog should be popular and should get reasonable traffic. You can signup for BuySellAds but it is really hard to get approved there. As they will check your blog on various scales. Once you get approved, you are all set.
3. Cost per mile (CPM) Advertisement
Suppose your blog gets tons of traffic even then you failed to make money. This may be frustrating for you. Reasons behind this:
- User using extensions which doesn’t allow ads to show on the blog when they visit your blog. For instance, AdBlock extension for Google Chrome do the same work. Mobile browser like UC Browser has in-built feature of not supporting ads thus blocks ads by default. They all are killing us.
- User may be viewing ads but not clicking on them. Not all of them are interested in ads.
In this situation, another method called CPM helps you. You will get paid for every 1000 views or impressions. If you get plenty of traffic then above described factors would never effect you at all.
4. Selling Ad Space using “Advertise Here” Page
You could also sell advertising directly on your site with an “advertise here” page letting the visitors know how to pay you for the ads they want to show on your blog. It works well because you don’t have to pay a % of your profits to Buy Sell Ads like ad networks. Although, you’re going to do more work. You can specify your prices on a particular page and linking it to your homepage header. People will find it easily.
5. Affiliate Promotions
However, this method is not so popular. Here you can become affiliate to other and promote their products on your blog. If readers find it interesting then they can buy it. In return, you will get commission for each purchase.
For instance, you can promote themes of WordPress, Books and Audios. In return you would get a commission for each purchase.
Another way to make money is to get donations from your readers in the form of love towards your hard work. It requires great contents and quality articles. Popular website like Wikipedia make money in the same way. It is non-profit organization. It doesn’t support advertisements. It gets its readers’ love.
7. Offering Services
When newbies get into blogging, they don’t have anything to do other than facing problems. There are many issues with which they get stuck. So, if you are expert at something, you can help them to learn basics and make them feel good. For this you can charge fees for your hard work.
Of course, it’s a saying, “If you’re really good at something, never do it for free.”
8. Membership Packages
If your blog is so popular, you can define criteria for free and premium membership on you blog. You can provide some articles for free just like trailer of a movie. You can then put most visited posts under paid membership package. Readers would not hesitate to pay you for those articles. However, this is a complicated way to earn money from your blog.
For me, one should not focus on making money from blog. However, majority of bloggers are online because they just want to make money. Everyone wants. But rather than focusing on making money, you should focus on create your blog a brand, an authority. Rest will come on its own. If you start a business, then it takes time to setup and give an output. Same way blogging is. Do hard work and provide unique and quality contents to your visitors so that they remember to return to your blog. Money is not a big thing. Thanks!!!
