There are different reasons as to why each person maintains a blog. For some it is a method of letting others know of their suggestions and opinions on various aspects. For some others, it is an avenue to show off their literary talents. But, there are several business-minded people who think of ways to earn money from their blogs. There are innumerable ideas available online to begin earning from your blogs, but here, we will discuss four main strategies that you can make use of, to start earning from your blog.
You can sell some space in your blog for advertisements on your own. This is the most common method of earning through a blog. However, this strategy may show results only if your blog is popular and has a high traffic to it. But, if your blog is not that popular, you can make use of Google AdSense programs to place ads. Here, you get paid, based on the number of visitors who click the ad placed within your blog. Out of organizations offering such services, Google AdSense is free, but Blog Ads levies some commission from the blogger.
The second strategy is to use your blog to sell products from others, who might be interested in selling their products online. You can also include tags and links within your blog, which takes readers to the particular website. In this case, for every unique visitor who clicks the link or tag, you are rewarded. For example, within a blog post, you can mention of the particular product that is available online, and get your readers to go there. If a sale happens, you will be rewarded.
If you are good at a particular service, and you feel that you can sell your services, your blog can form an avenue for that. For example, architects and interior designers can put up their portfolios within the blog, and that can attract business. There are several astrologers who use their blogs to sell their services. You can also express your abilities in a particular skill. That will let your readers know your level of knowledge in that topic, and that will turn in more business for you.
You need to treat your existing clients very well. Your blog can be used to deepen the relations you hold with them. When you regularly communicate with your existing customers about your business, new readers will also be intrigued to know what you do. This in turn helps to increase the traffic to your blog. They might recommend you to other people they know.
Though many of us use our blogs as a private space to yell out all that we feel and like, if used wisely, they can prove the best gateways to obtain easy money.
