How To Make Money Online Blogging

Thinking About Making A Little Money Online 
From Your Blog? (Monetize Your Blog)

Think about some of the products and tools you use yourself  in your niche. If they are successful recommend them with your affiliate link for that product/tool so you will earn commissions from them. A resources page is great for shedding some light on exactly what you use. That seems to be the first thing everyone wants to know, what you are using that is making you money. Your audience will more than likely try it if it works.

Affiliate programs for your products may have ads you can place you your blog/website you use to can earn commissions as well. Also, Google has a program called Adsence that will pay you when ads they place on your page are clicked. There are other programs like this as well. This only works if you have good traffic. If you don't have
much traffic I would consider working on that first. Traffic = Money. No Traffic= No Money.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) will play a major role in blogging to make money online. Setting Up your page for search engines will allow those who search for specific keywords to find your blog/website. The SEO Periodic table will help guide you when it comes to applying SEO to your blog/website.

Can You Really Make Money Online?

 The highly most asked question is can you really make an income online? The answer to that question is yes. It is not something where you just click a button and poof, you instantly start making money or become a millionaire. There is time and money invested. You can get started for free but I must warn you, the things you will be using that are free are 99% of the time are of poor quality. Sad but true. So it is your choice to use them or not but take into consideration it could cause you to lose out on sales due to poor quality.

How Can You Make Money Online?

There are several ways to make money online but really it takes all of them to make what is called "Your System" or "sales funnel". For example, say you have this product and you want to promote it. Like most internet marketers do, there is a whole process to this. And whats so special is all you have to do most of the time once you figure it out is to rinse and repeat it!.

Is This For You?

It depends. If you want to see a million dollars in your bank account next week then my answer is no. This is not for you. If you are willing to work on setting up your financial freedom goal by helping others reach their goal then yes. This might be for you after all. I can't say this is the hardest thing I have ever done. But I can't say its the easiest either.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

  1. Affiliate Marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate's own marketing efforts. The industry has four core players: the merchant, the network, the publisher, and the customer.
-Summing it up: you promote a product/s and receive a commission when a sale is made and is referred by you.

Where do I find a product/s?

To find a product you can do a search. For example, you could do a search on hosting and when you find a host then you would obtain an affiliate link. If you look at the bottom of the page you should see affiliates. That means us. Once you click that you will then be able to use your special affiliate link. This link is special because it tells the company who they need to pay for the commission. Without that link you don't make a penny! So be sure to use your link. 

You can check these out as well. They have tons of products to chose from...
*These are free to use*

- Commission Junction
- Shareasale   << Favorite by the way. I definitely recommend this one!

How Do I get Paid?

The company you are promoting for will send you a check or direct deposit into your bank account. Whichever you chose. Some have Paypal and some will only do Paypal! Some pay twice a month and some pay only once. You can view your account info once you register to see how often and when that company pays.

How To Promote Products

You can use social media like Facebook and Twitter. If you don't have either of these you can register for them and start building your traffic aka friends lists. You can do a review about a product on your blog/website. You can even use Youtube and submit a video (which works like magic). Classifieds don't send traffic as fast as you may like but it does work. My favorite way to drive traffic are solo ads. Solo ads are when you pay someone to send a email with your link to their own personal email lists. They also guarantee a certain amount of clicks on your link. I believe this is one of the fastest ways to get some clicks and maybe even a few sales.
