So you started a blog and are starting to get some pretty decent traffic. Well, when you find yourself with a good following and a topic that people are chomping at the bit to learn more about, then why not make yourself some passive income? It won’t take but a little bit of time to implement these strategies, but once you do, you can sit back and do what you do best which is create content all while making some money at the same time. Here are a few things you can start doing to pull in some income.
When done right and when a post becomes viral there can be a TON of money made through just one little affiliate link in your content. If you promote a great product and can provide some great accompanying content such as a review or otherwise then there is no reason that you can’t make some pretty decent money. An example would be reviewing a certain product in a post and giving your honest opinion of it. At the end of the post you could add your affiliate link for readers to purchase through. You could also insert an affiliate link where you feel it would be appropriate, such as suggesting a video marketing product in a post where you talked about video marketing.
Adsense is one of the easiest ways for a new marketer to make some money. In fact, most blogging platforms already have a widget built in to display Adsense ads on your site where you feel it most appropriate. You can put them in your side bar, at the top of the page or in between blog posts. If you have a pretty decent blog with regular traffic and good content, then there is no reason why you couldn’t make some regular monthly income by serving up these ads.
Don’t want to use either of the above? Are you in a tight niche and have A TON of targeted traffic. If this sounds like you then you could have a gold mine on your hands. You can serve up ad space at a premium to others looking to get traffic to their own sites OR you can use the BuySellAds.Com marketplace. Either way it is a win-win situation for you.
These three revenue sources are a quick and easy way for you to start making some money from your blog. Of course if it is a new blog with little traffic you can only expect to make a little less than expected. But, if you have grown a pretty good sized blog with some pretty good sized traffic then perhaps it’s time that you started thinking about different ways that you can start making money from your blog. Starting with affiliate marketing is a great start and you can choose what products you want to promote. You can also go the route of serving up ads and still make a pretty decent profit. Don’t waste that traffic – start making some money today.
