Blogging to the Bank 3.0 launched a while ago and it was one of the biggest product launches of the year. Now that all the hustle and bustle of new product launches has finally died down for Blogging to the Bank 3.0, I am finally able to sit down and blog about this profit blogging product.
To be honest, I have been a buyer of the prior two versions of Blogging to the Bank, the first one was basically about blog farming on blogger.com, the second version incorporated opt in forms on WordPress self-hosted blogs and this latest version of Blogging to the Bank adds on even more money making manuscripts build into a blog.
If you’ve read my other internet marketing articles,you may have noticed that I always put an emphasis on great content as a fundamental SEO practice to help you get massive traffic to your blog. But what’s the use of all that traffic in all of that if you’re never getting any decent money from your blog at the end of the day?
That actually dawned upon me several years back when I was blogging on Friendster (a social networking site), which was read mostly by friends, people who were in my network. It eventually came to a point when I was getting about 100 readers a day, and that’s when I thought to myself, I do this much work on this site, I’m not getting paid but Friendster does when my blog readers click on Friendster’s ads. From then on I moved to self hosted WordPress.
But yes for a while I did do this rather diligently for just the fun of it, but later looked for means to earn from a blog and so should you.
Before you do, it’s important to realize that there’s nothing ethically or morally wrong with monetizing your blog. After all, the products you sell or ads you run from your blog are aimed to help your readers, and it’s their decision to engage in them at the end of the day.
So, let’s look at the common ways to make some easy money from your blog:
This is where a lot of bloggers start out; in fact a lot website owners of non blog websites use this method too since its the easiest, quickest and if I have to add one more… least complicated way of monetizing your blog.
Adsense is so easy to implement on your site, and because the quality of the ads (and relevance) is so high, the chance of your visitors clicking ads are higher.
But, this is not your ticket out of your day job unless you are making some serious money from it, and from experience that’s usually when you have a huge high-traffic site, or have several niche blogs that cumulatively make you good money.
2. Affiliate programs
There’s no end of products you can promote as an affiliate and in many cases (particularly with digital download sales) you can earn a significant share of the revenue, sometimes up to 100% in a few cases. It’s really just a case of finding a good affiliate network, signing up and picking products to promote that tie in with your blog content. The more you hand pick individual products to promote based on individual posts, the higher your revenue will be. Don’t just slap one product on the sidebar; you need to actively presell the product by talking about it, and the problems it solves.
3. Selling advertising space
Just like making money from Adsense ads on your blog, there needs to be substantial (and targeted) traffic to your blog in order for you to attract media buyers (the people who buy the ad space from your site). Furthermore, advertisers will want to know precise demographics of your average blog readers, such as their age, location and reading habits (how long they stay on your site and what they respond to in terms of your content and other ads). You can get this information by visiting Quantcast.com and using their scripts to gather all of this data from your blog, which you can then present to interested buyers of ad space on your blog.
These are just some of the ways to attract revenue from your site. Each of the above methods does of course require more training in order for you to reach your maximum profit potential and beyond.
Blogging to the Bank 3.0 however introduces one more method of cashing in on your blog, and this method is least spoken of among internet marketing circles. Find out more about it at my Blogging to the Bank 3.0 Review.
