As a fellow blogger, whose content will be up in the cloud 24/7, its important to have ways to monetise your blog
The issue faced by most bloggers is this, they want to monestise their blog, without it seeming
There are several different ways to do this and this post will look at some of the more innovative
#1 Google Ads
Google, ads are probably the most common way for most bloggers to earn money from their blog
Google ads, work on a content driven basis, which means the ads are directly, or as close to directly related to your content as they can be.
They are also inoffensive to most people and its this inoffensive ness which is the key to successful monetisation
Once you have sufficiently good content then Google, provides you with a code, which you place on your website/s
You then have full control over where yoru ads will apear om your site
The most common places are in the middle of the content, by that I mean in between paragraphs as opposed to slap ban in the middle of the content
Another place you will see ads are at the foot of posts, or on the right hand side bar.
However, if you are planning to make your fortune from this type of advertising, then you could be in for a logn wait
Google pays for clicks, but you would need an awful lot to make any serious money
That said, if its pocket money, which mounts up then Google Ads are certainly a good way to go
Leadsleap, is a lovely way to earn money from your blog, with in offensive being its middle name
It works in a ver similar way to GoogleAds, but through the clever use of a WordPress widget which when installed displays ads very nicely on the side bar and calls them sponsored Links
You can see an example of this on the right hand side bar of this blog.
The good with LeadsLeap is this, Though it works similar in terms of placement of ads to Google Ads
Its earnings potential for you is far better, because
You only have to click on 10 ads daily, to earn a share of the revenue that Leadsleap generates.
Now the beauty with this is that if you refer people to LeadsLeap you get paid a referral commission on their activity and everyone who joins you, righ the way down 10 levels
So you can earn significantly from the platform and I know of people earning a goodfew thousdand every month from people clicking on the widget on the side of their blog
#3 Affiliate Banners
Now this is again is a variation on Google Ads banners, and in offensive, simply because you have the choice of placement of where the banner goes
But before you read about that, you might be wondering what a banner isand you can see one below
Typically, it will be a 468 x 60 banner, which is what the one above is
As you can see, it doesn’t look that much different from a Google Banner placed in the same spot for example
To the naked eye, there is no real diference, its still a banner ad of sort.
So why would you want to put a banner ad in between your text, how does it work for you
Lets look for a minute at the Google Ad example.
Someone clicks one of Your Google Ads. You might earn a few cents, literally for someone clicking the ad
they then go on to buy the product from company X. You don’t get anything from Company X
Now lets look at the banner ad example
The person click on the banner ad, and sees a product that is going to solve a problem for them.
The difference this time, is that the banner ad, is a product you are an affiliate for
Your reader, then decides that the product is what they want and signs up to use it
You get a referral commission which is a minimum of 10%
they like the product that much, they then upgrade to the higher level
You now get a further commission of 50% every month
They also tell others about this incredible product and they do likewise
So now your getting commissions from others every single month
All this for work you have done quite literally… Just once
The key with monestising your blog, is that it is done in an inoffensive way
There is nothing more in offensive than a Banner ad. People are expecting to see them.
So in concusion and summary, these are 3 ways to monetise your blog
3 ways in which you can monetise it 24/7 even while you sleep, because its ‘out there’
Which way is best, or the most preferred?
Well thats entirely dependent on you and which way you think is the least offensive, but of most benefit to you
Once you have chosen or decided that, then that is thr route to go
