So you have a blog and want to start making money with it... now what are you going to do? Fortunately the world of blogging has a ton of opportunities for you to explore when it comes to making a little bit of money on the site.
Through my blogs at ZacJohnson.com and BloggingTips.com I've been able to create a very nice stream of recurring income month after month while also helping others learn how to the same.
In this article I will give you a short list of three very easy to implement and effective ways you can start making money with your blog right now. These are some of the most simple ways to make money with a blog when first starting out.
Amazon Associate ProgramIf you ever wanted to buy anything online, then you likely will head over to Amazon.com and purchase something from their site. Amazon also has an affiliate program that pays site partners whenever they send new customers to their site. In short, if you are writing about a product or service on your blog, then you could be linking to Amazon.com in the process and earning a commission if you send over any new sales and customers to their site.
Google AdsenseGoogle isn't just the largest search engine in the world, but they are also one of the largest advertisers as well. Millions of web sites are currently serving Google Ads on their site and getting paid every time someone clicks on their links. The concept is dead simple... you create a site and get traffic, then you place a line of code on your site and Google serves all of the ads. At the end of the month you get a check for the amount of money you earned.
Sell Direct AdvertisingAnother great way to make money with a blog of your own is to sell your own direct advertising. This can be anything from placing banners ads on your site, paid reviews or sponsorships. The good thing about direct ad sales is that you will get all of the money for yourself and not have to pay another third party.
These three methods are just the tip of the iceberg for what is possible with making money online. Be sure to always focus on your content and providing value, while not looking too desperate to sell ads and make money with your site.
