30 PROVEN WAYS TO MAKE MONEY WITH YOUR BLOG- (Part I)

As a Netpreneur, just like other savvy bloggers from all over the world, there are many different ways to generate money with your website online.

Unfortunately, too many people often give up because at that present time they are not making any money at all. It takes time to build a blog site that will make you money, though with the right direction, planning and hard work this can be achieved quicker. It all depends on how you monetize your blog!

The following list is a collection of many of the different ways of making money with your website. Depending on what your website is about, a large number of these techniques can be implemented to earn you cash. However, you should not give up or get discouraged if one method does not work for you, just try a different one and build upon that!

The following list is by no means exhaustive but it is a good start. You can research and get more for yourself!

    1.  Pay Per Click Advertising

The best (and easiest) income sources for bloggers (especially those who are just starting out) are PPC ad networks. A PPC Ad network is an advertising program in which ads are placed on your blog and you are paid whenever your visitors click on the ads. Simple, isn’t it? And Totally Passive. You just put the PPC ads on your blog (inside the content, sidebar, header or just anywhere) and then see the money coming in. But hold

on, It does require you to get traffic to your blog.

The best PPC network, without any doubts, is Google AdSense. It is the highest paying network and shows content related ads only.  There are many alternatives to AdSense but most of them either pay too low or have less relevant ads. Some good alternatives to AdSense are Chitika, Adbrite and Bidvertiser etc.

Pay Per Click (PPC) ads vary in profitability depending on the amount of traffic your website gets. Only a small percentage of people will click on these ads, so to earn a lot of money from them you will need a lot of traffic.

The click-through rate (CTR) of your visitors depends on the design of your website. Certain parts of your website pages are more valuable than others, so to increase your CTR these PPC ads can be placed there. For example, spaces at the beginning and end of articles/blog posts are highly visible, so by putting a PPC in these positions may increase the chances of someone clicking on one. If on the other hand you place these ads at the bottom of the page where nobody can see them, then nobody will click on them.

The cost per click (CPC) can also determine how much you are likely to earn from this type of ad. Adverts that display financial products or mortgages will generate you more income due to the higher price of the actual product, compared with perhaps children’s toys. The former may pay you as much as $1+ for every click

through by one of your visitors, whereas a click on toys may pay you only a few cents.

PPC ads are a good way to easily monetize your blog. However, to make serious money from them you will need lots of traffic.

2. CPM (Cost Per Mile) Advertising                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Cost per Mile advertising (CPM) is similar to PPC advertising, however instead of getting paid on a perclick basis, you get paid according to the number of impressions (page views) you get. This is worked out for every 1000 impressions that it has. For example, a website that gets 200,000 page views per month that displays a $1 CPM ad will generate you $200 a month!

There are a number of different CPM providers out there that you can get ads from. Each varies on how much they will pay you, generally the better the provider the higher rate you will be paid. This is because the best providers have access to more and better quality advertisers that are willing to pay you more.

Just like PPC, CPM adverts can pay you more depending on where the advert is placed on your website. The higher the ad is placed and the bigger the ad is, will generally make you more money.

CPM adverts are beneficial for websites that have lots of traffic and a high page view per visitor ratio, but it is still a good option to consider when looking to monetize your blog.
