Where does the money come from?

Simply publishing blog contents does not generate money. We need some methods to monetize the blog. Belows are some of the ways.

1. Google Adsense (ad program)

It is the most popular ad program used by many bloggers. You get paid when visitors click on the ads (provided by Google) displayed on your blog. The amount of money earned depending on the cost per click (CPC) of the displayed ads. The CPC can be as low as a few cents, and as high as a few dozens of dollars. Therefore, high traffics are needed to make a decent amount of money. You have to sign up the program and get approval from Google. Then, they will provide unique codes for you to incorporate into your blog. Click here to Google Adsense.

2. Other Ad programs

While Google Adsense is the dominant one, there are still other choices such as Chitika, Text Link Ad, Clicksor, adBrite.

3. Affiliate Programs

There are many affiliate programs on the internet. The advertisers pay you commissions when visitors buy from them through your links. There will be unique link codes provided by the advertisers for you. Some of the popular affiliate program websites are clickbank, commission junction and amazon associates.

4. Direct Ads

You can sell your ad spaces for showing ads directly of the advertisers. However, very high traffics and good contents are needed to attract advertisers.

5. Sponsored Reviews

You can get paid by publishing sponsored reviews on your blog. Some of the programs are PayPerPost, Sponsored Reviews and ReviewMe.

6. Premium Contents

You charge blog readers for accessing premium contents. One of the examples is the TUTPLUS network, readers pay to access premium tutorials.

7. Sell E-books

Apart from selling affiliate e-books and get commissions, you can sell your own e-book and get the profits directly. Good content is the key to profit.

8. Sell Your Own Products

You can sell tangible or intangible products to interested readers.

9. Others

Other ways such as offering consulting services and receving donation.
