Blogging? How to Make Money Doing It!
Blogging for Money Success
It seems everybody these days has a blog. And it seems that everyone wants to know how to make money blogging.
While all of us will not become a Jeremy Schoemaker (Shoemoney) or Steve Pavlina success story with our blogs, it is possible to make at least a bit of mad money with your blog. After you monetize your blog, you may even make enough money blogging to quit your day job.
So, how do you go about it? Here are a few blogging tips for how to get paid online.
Do you have a blog?
Blogging for Money With Google Adsense
Probably the easiest way to make money blogging is with the Google Adsense program. You sign up for the program with Google. This gives Google permission to place ads on your blog that correlate to the subject of your blog. In turn, you get money for every time someone 'clicks' on an ad. How much money you make depends on your blog traffic, subject matter, popularity, and other factors. You get paid monthly, either by direct deposit or a check mailed to you. For me, the Adsense program has been the easiest and quickest way to make money on the internet.
Make Money Blogging With Affiliate Marketing Programs - Choose from Several
There are many affiliate programs on the internet. These programs allow you to place ads for products on your website, like Google Adsense. There are affiliate products compatible with virtually any blog subject.
The difference from Adsense is that these ads will lead them to the advertised product. If they buy, you get a commission. The commission differs depending on the affiliate program and the product itself.
There are several ways to join an affiliate program. Amazon has their own affiliate program. Many other companies also have their own affiliate marketing programs. Search a website for 'affiliates' or 'partners' information if you are interested in selling their products.
Then there are third party affiliate programs that handle hundreds of companies. Join their network and you have access to companies promoting practically everything under the sun. A couple of reputable affiliate management programs are LinkShare and Commission Junction.
Get Paid to Write Reviews on Your Blog
Another way to make money blogging is to write reviews about specific products or services. Of course, the products must be somehow related to your blog and its readers.
You won't be able to make money blogging with reviews until you have built up a decent amount of readers, though. But it is worth checking out if you have a semi-popular blog. Some companies pay up to $100 per review!
If interested, look into SponsoredReviews.com or SocialSpark.com. There are other paid review companies, too. Just google it!
