I own a blog, how do I make some money with it?
Make Money Blogging from Home: Monetize your blog
First of all you need to get visitors to your blog! These techniques here are useless for a blog with no audience!
Ok, you now own a Blog with visitors that like your content. Now you want to make money out of your blog, of course!
There are a lot of ways to transform your visitors (=traffic) into revenue!
The people who visit your site, have a special interest (your blogs topic!), use this to your advantage!
Set up links that bring your visitors to the place they want to go, and get money by sending them there!
Simple example:You run a blog about games, where you post game reviews. You will place a tracking link in your article, sending your readers to amazon to order the game directly after reading your awesome review. You get payed by amazon for every buyer you send them. You are now an “Affiliate” of Amazon! You provided your reader good, solid insight in the game and your opinion about it and in return you get a commission, if the reader buys the game! simple as that.
