Blogging in recent years has come out as a big booming field over internet. Initially blogging was a platform that was known to only a few people and this platform was used to express views, opinions and thoughts. There were only a few bloggers in the world who were very passionate about writing. But time has changed now, today a blog is much more than a piece of great content and blogging is much more than a passion. Now people use this platform for a lot of things. These days blogging is used for many purposes as we all know. For example – to make money online, to promote different product and services, to generate online business etc..
So, a money or a profit factor is now attached to blogging. People are now blogging for money and profit. This trend is growing very fast and a lot of people are now interested to blog for money or to generate business.
When we talk about setting up a blog and writing articles, this part is not that pain or that much harder. After little practicing in WordPress can make you expert in this. You can create a website in just 5 to 10 minutes and submitting articles is also very easy. After you create a website and start posting articles on a daily basis your next job is to promote your site with the help of S.E.O, S.M.O, sometimes S.E.M as well. You start learning these techniques by reading expert blogs in this field and start practicing. But the main hurdle comes to a lot of blogging beginners is that they fail in earning money.
Why they fail in making some decent money?
To my observation they are not able to monetize their blog efficiently. Yes, a lot of bloggers fail in monetizing their blog. They manage to get traffic but traffic is of no use if you can’t make money out of it.
So, my approach here is to make you aware to understand which blog should be monetized by which monetizing program. Here I will share three well-known monetizing platforms that will help you in deciding how you should monetize your blog. Let us see what are these three monetizing programs.
1. Google AdSense
This is one of the very well-known and most recommended monetizing program that you can use to monetize your blog. Usually beginners use this program in their blog but they don’t know if this program is good for their particular blog or not.
What kind of blog goes well with Google AdSense?
Google AdSense can be used in any kind of blog but the most effective use of Google AdSense is on a blog which is having a targeted niche of keywords that have high CPC. So, if your blog niche is on Health, insurance, make money, or any other high CPC specific niche, then you must use Google AdSense because these are some of the very high CPC niches.
2. Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is another great option to monetize a blog. All you need to do is join an affiliate marketing site and promote product or services. There are two well-known sites which are at the top in this industry – Clickbank.com and Cj.com. Here you can find hell lot of products to promote on your blog.
What kind of blog goes well with affiliate marketing?
A blog which is related to reviews or product, is the best to try affiliate marketing or can say affiliate marketing is the best monetizing option for this kind of blog.
Let us take an example, suppose you have blog niche “photography” and you share things about “cameras and techniques” then you can easily monetize your blog with some camera affiliate and promote these kind of product to make good commissions on sales.
I personally believe these kind of blogs make more money as compared to the blogs that are monetized with Google AdSense.
3. Sell your own Products
Selling your own product is the most profitable blog monetizing idea that you can apply to your blog. With Google AdSense, you have to share 65 percent of the revenue with Google, in affiliate marketing you only get some commissions. But when you sell your own products on your blog the whole 100% profit goes to your pocket.
What kind of blogs are best to sell your own product?
You can make and sell your own products in which you are a master of. Suppose you have done MBA and you are master in the subjects. So, you can write a Book or create some series of Videos on Subjects for preparation of MBA and sell them to the people who are interested. Which means these products will make sure that people who will buy this product will get benefit from it.
This is just an example, the main motive to share with you is that if you can create some product or can provide some service then promoting through your blog is the best option. As mentioned earlier 100% profit goes to your profit.
