Monetize your blog
Great, when you searched for this subject you probably already know that your blog is important for you and your business and probably have read already this article.
Since you have started your blog you certainly are eager to know how to make the best use of it and how to get visitors to your business represented by your new blog.
If you have created your blog to represent an offline business and sell products like my wife does or other services you have the opportunity to create some additional income by placing advertisements from amazon or google ad sense. That does not make much money right away, but as longer your blog is online and as more traffic you get to it, it will pick up.
DO NOT use GOOGLE ADSENSE or AMAZON if you have a blog for the purpose of affiliate marketing, too many programs involved are not welcome by google or Amazon. Easy to overlook one of those and risk your accounts.
To monetize your blog with Amazon and or Google Adsense you may keep on reading at this page first.
Affiliate Marketing – your blog is your funnel to succeed
Finally you have created your blog and you started to introduce your business as independent Marketer, starting to build you own list and getting more focused at your business and you want to stop building other peoples lists and instead building your own.
Show people what you are doing, who you are, what are your goals and how someone else could reach them while following your example.
That requires some sort of discipline at your end. If you use your blog only to put up a more or less randomly created bunch of articles about all and everything you ever have joined in the past and every page just looks like a banner and link tree, that's doomed to fail.
Readers don't want advertisements they want information's first hand experiences from you, like reviews or proof that something works and what you do that it does.
Sorry, but yes it requires text in your own words, one can not just copy and paste the existing ad templates. You can, but always add some of your thoughts to it.
To achieve some sort of structure think about such programs which every body needs to advertise his or her business. Be smart and choose those programs which offer the opportunity for monthly recurring income, spread some short time opportunities but you want to have a regular income, so focus at services which give you exactly that.
Introduce / sell what everybody needs!
Email marketing sources. If you are member at TAP introduce Tap and save you the time to gather proof of what works best.
Traffic exchanges. Introduce those TE's which work for you or even better introduce them to TDL where one can reach 7000 sources while being member there for only 10 bucks a month.
Text ad exchanges – there are plenty of it out there, choose the best which gives additional value for a monthly fee or even for free such like pop up creators, trackers and down-loadable tools. Leadsleap is the source for text ads, which I use and I am glad that decided to focus at only one Textadservice.
Banner exchanges – this are sources which rotate banners. Some are more efficient than others. Most likely those which do not offer click incentives and place those banners not just within the "traffic industry" but on peoples blogs as well like GTM banner network does work best. Read more.
