Ready to make some cash on your blog?
While most of us bloggers are just hobbyists, there are a few out there that blog for a profession. The profession is growing quite a bit. Most of us have probably seen bloggers who have worked out relationships with companies offering giveaways and doing product reviews.
However, one of the ways to make money on your blog that is not mentioned much is through advertising. For those of us on the blogger platform, Adsense is integrated and fairly easy to use. It's also quite easy to use the Amazon Associates program.
You can also publish advertising on your blog that you select. Last month, on Blog Tips by Liz, I wrote a post about one of the companies that you can use to publish ads:
There are several out there, but I think that Linkshare is a great place to start. (Visit the link above for more details on that program.) They have been in the biz for awhile and there are some really big names. For example, if you are approved to publish advertising for Apple iTunes you can create links within your posts to your favorite music and if your readers download the music, you make money.
Here is an example of a post on my WomanlyWoman.com blog where I made money selling iTunes music:
I was really just sharing my appreciation for that Oprah episode, but included the links for the convenience of my readers.
While it was only a few dollars generated through the program, those pennies can add up.
Feel free to check out my blogs (Womanly Woman and Blog Tips by Liz) for more information or examples and contact me if you have any other questions.
Thanks for stopping by!
