Getting paid as a blogger
More and more people are getting into blogging nowadays. After all, anyone can start at any time. All you need to do to start is to be yourself and post some content. Money isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when starting a blog, but it definitely is a great boon to have. And, with enough time and patience, you can actually earn a pretty penny from blogging. How, you say? Well then, keep reading, because here’s some ways that bloggers have found to earn money from the Internet.
Some advice before we begin however: do take note that you can monetize your blog, but only once you get some notoriety. Until then, do your best to advertise your blog and rake in subscribers. Another thing, as blogging is a majorly Internet-based profession, most if not all of your earnings will be sent to you through non-cash means. A mobile app allows you to check your account balance on the go. Apps like PayPal and Paxum are great for that, so make sure you make an account. Now then, let’s begin!
Sign up for an affiliate program
Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic that works by promoting another business’s product to your audience and offering them a link to the business’s site to visit. Affiliates can earn a percentage of money gained from product sales, enough to be a healthy source of income. Almost every online commercial business has an affiliate program of some kind, such as Amazon and Apple. A blogger thrives from the audience they gather; recommending products and services to them can earn you a big commission.
Add advert banners to your page
Consider selling some banner advertising space on your web page to other brands that your subscribers may want to buy. That way, you can earn extra income in one of two ways; CPC (cost per click), where you’ll net income for every click on the banner, or CPM (cost per thousand), wherein payment comes in for every thousand views (called impressions) the ad gets.
Accept sponsorship programs
One of the best ways you can monetize your blog is through accepting sponsorships from various company brands and advertise them on your page. You can get paid for making advertisements, either through written articles or quick dedicated segments in videos. This is especially effective once you’ve garnered a strong and dedicated audience. Once you’ve proven yourself as a notorious blogger, brands will flock towards you in order to discuss any potential sponsorships in the future.
Blogging has been turning into an increasingly marketable way of expressing yourself online, so much so that businesses are even willing to pay you in order to advertise their products. If you are interested in starting a blog, then make sure you can earn a pretty penny in the process. Sure, there is no guarantee that blogging may work out for you, and even then, it may take a lot of time and effort to monetize your blog. Nonetheless, when your blog has gotten big and famous enough, then be assured that money can come your way - as long as you do what must be done for it.
