How to Monetize Your Blog in Many Different Ways


If you own a website or a blog, you probably know a few ways to make money from it. But did you know that there are at least 30 different ways you can make money from your website? Web content has become such an important aspect of marketing that businesses of all sizes and across all industries invest in SEO services to promote their brand and generate more revenue.

The following list is a compilation of money-making opportunities you can have with your website. Don’t be easily discouraged if one method won’t work for you – all you have to do is try another one!

1.PPC Ads

With PPC or Pay Per Click advertising, you get paid for every click your website visitor makes on the ads that are showing on your web pages. Google AdSense is the most widely used PPC provider, but there are also many other options to choose from. Your earnings from PPC will depend on several factors including your click-through-rate (CTR), cost per click (CPC), how much traffic your website gets, and others.

2.Cost Per Mile Advertising

Cost per Mile advertising (CPM) is just like PPC advertising, except that you get paid based on the number of page views you get. Usually, you get paid for every 1,000 impressions. So, if the rate is $2 per CPM ad and your website gets 1,000,000 per month, then you earn $2,000 per month!

3.In-text Ads

These are adverts placed within your text content. These are double underlined so they stand out, and when your reader moves the mouse over the ads, a small advertising pop-up will show. You earn money for every click.

4.Advertising Space

Selling ad space on your blog is a good way to make money and it allows you to set the price. You display an ad for a set duration of time and the advertiser will pay you the agreed upon rate. The downside is that you have to first build a lot of traffic before advertisers will even consider placing ads on your web pages.

5.Audio Advertising

Pay per Play (PPP) are ads played every time a person visits your website. The ads only last a few seconds, and for unique visitors it creates a 100% conversion rate, so you are paid around $5 per visit. The problem is that many people find this kind of marketing intrusive and they may be discouraged from visiting your site completely.

6.Affiliate Marketing

This method is a wonderful way to make money from your website. Basically, you’ll be writing product reviews, product comparisons and overviews. For every referral that resulted in a sale, you will get a commission. I know of a handful of people who are making at least a few thousand dollars every month from affiliate marketing.

Other ways to monetize your blog like is by offering coaching services, webinars, video ads and a whole lot more. To ensure you have a steady flow of income from your blog, you need to know how to boost your ranking in search engines (using SEO), grow your traffic and provide the best content for your readers.
