How To Monetize Your Blog

Okay, so you’ve got a thriving blog and have gone through the steps to earn a sizable readership. This is commendable – many blogs never move past a writer’s immediate friends and family. However, as much as you may love posting about your subject matter, keeping a large audience of readers happy with fresh content is no small task, and you may begin to feel like you simply don’t have time unless your blog would somehow start making money.

Generating revenue from your blog is not a mystical, secret skill that only a privileged few are blessed with the knowledge of. In fact, having a loyal group of readers who consistently enjoy the information you share is half the battle. If you are serious about turning your blog into a cash-generating machine, there are many possible routes you might take, the most popular of which are discussed below.

Por qué las grandes marcas invierten en Google

Uno de los factores que más llaman la atención sobre el sistema de los anuncios patrocinados es su oscuridad, ya que se estima que muchas marcas están comprando posiciones allí, pero es difícil presentar unas estadísticas dado que el mismo sistema descentralizado de Adsense hace que cada compra sea muy sencilla y se pueda realizar por internet pero que la evaluación del conjunto sea una incógnita.


Los grandes anunciantes estadounidenses están apostando fuerte por invertir en las búsquedas patrocinadas en Google, según un informe publicado por la revista AdAge, que estima que una gran partida de este gasto permanece en las sombras.

La revista cree que cuando la marca BP se vio abocada al desastre publicitario detonado por el derrame en el Golfo de México, que mermó su imagen entre los consumidores locales, su primer objetivo fue recuperar su reputación online en Google, antes de centrarse a la televisión.

En este sentido, la marca invirtió más de 100 millones de dólares, que en su mayoría fueron a parar a la televisión, aunque fue significativa su inversión de 57.000 dólares mensuales en el buscador.

Create Additional Income Streams

I am loving the freelance life, but until my plan of winning the lottery becomes a reality, I will continue to be on the lookout for ways to maximize what’s going into my wallet while minimizing what’s coming out of it.

Raj Dash wrote an excellent article about creating multiple income streams for digital nomads. I’d like to build on the foundation that he’s written, in hopes that you might be able to find a way to put a bit more cash into the pockets of your pajamas.

* E-books, books – Raj’s article is a bit skewed towards writers, but anyone can write and sell a tutorial on a topic they know thoroughly. If you plan on selling it, have a professional editor/proof-reader go over it. Excellent content will sell, but if it’s full of grammatical errors, you’re making it harder than it needs to be.
* Ad Revenue – Your website could be making you money. Google Adsense can make you some cash if you have a lot of traffic. BuySellAds.com will place ads on your site, and split the profits with you. Entrecard has an interesting system to monetize your blog. With a good ad system in place, you can focus on providing quality content to get people to your site.
