The optimization and monetization of a blogging business have been a hot topic for a few years now. That’s why every one of us is striving to achieve those goals by means of new and innovative ways popping up every day. Here, in this article, I’m going to discuss some ways that the seasoned bloggers do to earn more money.
The first and the foremost thing when it comes to earning money via blogging is to get up-close and personal with the established brands. If you build direct relationships with the brands, you will be able to increase your blog’s credibility, authenticity, and value and ultimately becomes a stable income source.
When you cooperate with the brands, you’ll be entering into the world where you start offering sponsored content (whether paid posts or sponsored reviews). A lot of companies search to make a real buzz about them, and that’s why prefers to pay extra cash for it.
Certainly, Banner Ads is the best way, if you want to monetize your content. As a matter of fact, there are some standard banner ad solutions, but the most natural one is Google AdSense. If you want to make a difference and earn more money then, prefer using non-traditional smart ad solutions. For instance, Infolinks is a great source to generate more revenue from your content.
If you want to earn more money from your blog, then you can only offer your readers a product or service. It doesn’t inherently mean that you need something like mugs or T-shirts to sell, but you can also go for offering counseling or coaching services and webinars. Moreover, if you’re professional in this field, then people would love to pay for your advice and expertise. You can set-up Skype sessions, webinars, and on-demand videos. Or else, just go for offering a premium membership for accessing your content.
It’s a fact that, if you succeed in making a solid email list, then your blogging business will go a long way. Certainly, the best way to spread your content, attract quality traffic and generate more leads to your site or blog is via email marketing. In addition to sending timely newsletters, you can also develop quality email content to reap more benefits.
You can build a larger email list by;
• Offering a freebie to draw new readers
• Add a “Join our Newsletter” box to your blog
• Use mass email tools, such as Send Blaster, Mailchimp, or SandGrid.
When it comes to the affiliate marketing or referral program, it’s the best way to make money online. Basically, it revolves around an idea of ‘if you’ll scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.’ In simple words, you have to sell someone else’s product or service or to send traffic to their site to get on yours. You can do it by spreading the quality posts about it, by adding a banner on your blog or by highlighting it on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or Twitter.
When it comes to making money blogging, you need unique and quality content. It also helps to create a constant and non-stop community. If you’re a publisher, then there’s a dire need to share your knowledge and celebrate your experience and the best way to do it is by writing down an e-book. An e-book (PDF version) will help you generate more leads as it asks readers to enter their email addresses to download the file. Or else, you can generate more revenues by selling it.
