Monetizing Your Blogs

Sep 24th 2010 at 9:48 AM

Now it’s time to monetize your blog so you can start collecting revenue from it! There are several different ways you can add revenue streams to your blog such as Google Adsense Ads, Affiliate Links, and selling your own products. We’ll also cover how to start collecting subscribers to your blog and building your list.

Google Adsense Ads

This is a form of advertising that involves full text classified ads getting displayed on your websites or blog. Once you apply for the program and get approved, Google will display relevant adsense ads on your website.

How it works is that every time a visitor to your site clicks on one of the Google ads displayed on your blog, you will get a small commission. The average commission per click is about 20 cents, but it depends on how competitive the keywords used in the ads are. Advertisers will have to pay more money for more competitive keywords. These are usually the keywords for topics that are very profitable such as making money online, insurance, credit cards etc. More competitive keywords can cost up to $30 per click sometimes.

Affiliate Links

The most popular affiliate programs out there for blogs are Clickbank, Commission Junction, Amazon, and Ebay. A great way to integrate these into your blog is either through banners ads or reviews.

When writing a review make sure you include a description of the product, the benefits, the disadvantages (don’t leave this out because adding the negative points about a product will make your review more credible to your readers), how the product has helped you, and add your affiliate link to the site where they can buy the product. This is a great technique because it’s pre-selling to your readers and will help to encourage a higher conversion rate.

Clickbank

Clickbank sells only digital products such as video courses, ebooks and software. You can find a huge range of products to promote and it’s very easy to do. Also, a lot of the payouts are 65%-75% and on average about $30. If you go to Clickbank’s marketplace you can sort the products by different criteria and categories.

Commission Junction

Commission Junction has a range of different affiliate programs for a range of products; both physical and digital. You can get paid for either a lead or a sale.

Amazon Affiliate Program

Although Amazon doesn’t pay as big of a commission as Clickbank and Commission Junction does, it is good at converting clicks to sales. Plus there’s a variety of ways they provide you with to advertise their products on your website, such as rotating widgets displaying lots of products and Amazon aStores that allow you to have a whole customized Amazon product store on your blog.

Ebay Partner Network

Ebay is similar to Amazon and has a large range of products you can promote on your blog. They also have a Pay Per Click program too.

Your Own Products

Another great way to monetize your blog is to simply sell your own products. This is a great way to build even more credibility and popularity for your blog. Having your own ebook or video course will help you to be seen as an authority in your niche and someone to go to for information. Plus you get to keep 100% of the sales!

Creating Products Yourself

Two of the most popular forms of products are ebooks and video courses. For ebooks, all you need to do is have Microsoft word or open office (free open-source software you can download from the internet), and convert your word document into a pdf so your customers can download it.

For video courses, I suggest making power point slides with Microsoft Powerpoint or Open Office and then using a screen capture software such as Camtasia or Camstudio (Camstudio is open-source software so it’s free, just do a Google search for it), to record the powerpoint slides as you narrate them.

Using PLR Products

If you’re not up to making your own products or you’re short on time, a good option is to purchase Private Label Rights Products. If you do a search, you will find plenty of ebooks, and video courses in all sorts of niches that come with PLR.

Simple purchase the products you want or join a PLR Membership site , edit it to suit your brand if you want to, and then it’s ready to be sold as your own product on your blog!
