Selling ad space on your blog
One of the best ways to earn good revenue on your blog is by selling ad space. If you can manage to traffic thousands or even millions of visitors to your blog, advertisers won’t think twice about advertising on your blog.
Joining up with affiliates
Becoming an affiliate is another good way to generate cash. Join up with a couple of affiliates matching the content of your blog. Once affiliated you incorporate the affiliation links provided by the company you are affiliated with into your blog. Generally it would be banner style ads. Basically this means the more traffic you generate, the more users you redirect to your affiliation partners meaning, ka-ching!!! Cash in your pocket.
The more companies you affiliate with, the more options you give your users to spend their well earned pennies.
Selling merchandise from your blog
Selling merchandise from your blog is another great way of generating good money. Let’s say you have a good logo for your blog and it would work well in print, then you are set for good money. Just think mugs, t-shirts, stickers, posters, basically anything that can be printed on can become merchandise with your blog logo on to be sold to your blog visitors.
Becoming a brand name like that can also boost more traffic to your blog since it will also be silent advertising of your blog when people in the street see your logo and blog address on a T-shirt or mug. Here are some tips on becoming a brand.
This is only a few methods of turning your blog into a revenue generating machine. Just think about it, the possibilities is endless. Any entrepreneur would make mega bucks out of their blogs. Some would even go on and create a chain of content specific blogs which in turn will enlarge their cash even more.
