5 steps to monetize your blog

By Mohnish On May 26, 2009 Under Blogging, Make Money Online

Having a blog doesn’t mean you can make money out of  it. There are several steps that need to be followed to convert your blog from a source of information to a source of income. If you already have a blog,  read through the following steps below top learn how to make money out of it.

1) Posting regular updates
Your blog must have at least one blog post every week. Whether you get feedback or you don’t, it is the best to write a blog post on weekly or even daily basis. Your readers would lose interest in your blog if they do not see any updates.

2) Pinging your blog
Pinging your blog is important because it ensures that blog directories as well as search engines will be alerted each time you update your blog. This will help you get the attention of more blog readers. Pingomatic and Pingoat are some of the available sites that supply this kind of service at no cost.

3) Promoting your blog
Apart from pinging your blog, you should let your target audience know that you exist on the internet and are a valuable source of information. As you get a steady growth and targeted traffic to your blog, you have the potential to make money out of it.

4) Space for Advertisements
As your blog grows you will need space for advertisements to make money out of it. As long as you have a good number of loyal followers and you maintain a steady flow of traffic, you have much to gain from publishing pay-per-click advertisements or even directly selling some space to advertisers.

5) Promote Affiliate Marketing Programs
This can be a very valuable means to leverage on your readership. Join affiliate marketing programs with products that your target market may be interested in. You can then use your blog to promote those products and earn commissions.

By following the steps listed above, you can be more effective making money online out of your blog.

    Amazon.com would be great. I’m not sure if eBay offers one. Since you’re blog is a technology blog and your visitors would be the ones who are interested in tech/gadgets, an gadgets affiliate program would be the best. Good luck! 🙂

    Great ideas, not sure if I will go with Private Advertisements as my niche advertisers are relatively small and my blog is fairly new..

    Should work on Aff programs.. not only cricket offers available though 🙁

    CricketHood – Private advertisements are the best if you have a niche like Cricket. For now, using ad networks like Adsense and Adbrite is the BEST for you. When you’re website grows big you’ll get sponsors on your own 🙂 .If you see the game of cricket, it was nothing 50 years back. But slowly it’s in the blood of almost 500 million Indians! Cheers! 🙂
