We are not talking about such for now, but the focus is the possible means and ways to make money online from your blog.
If this is the reason why your here today, grab a cup of tea and focus…
Do you know that you can create a blog for the purpose of making money and at the end generate nothing, because of certain knowledge and skills missing. However, If you had created a blog for the simple and logical aim of expressing yourself and to communicate with others consequently having similar interests, its imperative you convert your blog into something that would earn you some income too. If not, it is not at a bad idea to create a blog for the main purpose of making it a source of income for you.
If you want to start making money from your blog, follow this 5 guides outlined below;
1.Get a Google Adsense Account:
The best start you can get is by signing up with Google.com for a free targeted “Adsense” account.This is a publishing account needed for bloggers to earn reasonable amount of money from their Ads space.It should be quite easy to set up,with on-screen step by step instructions where you can also choose from displaying text ads to image ads of varying dimensions and at preferred locations on the web page. Ads will start appearing within ten minutes from completing the setup and every time a site visitor clicks on an advertisement, a payment gets credited to your account.
N/B: You must sign up and wait accordingly for approval before you will be able to access the Google Adsense account crafted for you.
If the theme of your blog is Gardening for example, then your blog will target Google ads with similar content. Gardening lovers who would be naturally attracted to your website are likely to click on some of those advertisements and possibly make online purchases too, generating income for you while you just sit back and watch.
2. Writing Reviews on Several products/items
As another means of generating income from your blog, try posting reviews on varying products within a given niche. If your niche happens to be Loan Consolidation, blogging, technology,science,fashions,mobile phones etc, there will be so many other blogs dedicated to related topics such as, Bankruptcy, Student Loans, and Financing Education,mobile gadgets,,shoes,blogs,making money opportunities, shopping,laptops etc.
You can earn an attractive percentage on their sales (loans granted) or commissions by entering into “Affiliate Marketing” agreements with the relevant institutions. You can find hundreds of affiliates matching your preferred products of marketing from www.clickbank.com/marketplace.htm. Go to web sites like, jiji, jumia, konga,kaymu and access their various products, get familiar with it and write quality and catching reviews on them and in return include your affiliates code for commission. Sometimes, although you are not been paid for writing this reviews, if your review happens to get higher rnking on Google search, you might be called or contacted to write a sponsored post for the designated company products you happen to initially write and published a review on.
