But, only a few of us are lucky, who are generating income from blogging. Many are still struggling to get their first client who pays them.
Why aren’t you able to make money even you have an excellent blog that is getting good amount of traffic?
Why even people having low traffic website are generating money while you are still scrambling.
Building a high-traffic website is not enough until you don’t know to generate income with that.
In this post, I will show you 3 simple strategies how to monetize your blog traffic.
#1. Start Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is probably one the best and most effective way to making money online. 8 out of 10 bloggers on the internet are selling affiliate products on their website and making the quality amount of money.
You might already know what is the affiliate marketing? In case, if you are beginner who has no idea about affiliate marketing there here a quick definition:
Affiliate marketing is a marketing style where you sell a product online through the website and after a successful purchase you get a fixed amount of commission.
Pat Flynn is generating six figure smart passive income from affiliate marketing. Lots more bloggers are making huge money from affiliate marketing.
If you do it right then, you won’t need any other resources of making money. Doing right?
Of course, there are some rules of affiliate marketing that you need to follow to get successful.
Following are the steps of affiliate marketing you need to know:
- Step 1- Select a niche that is related to your niche.
- Step 2- Research affiliate programs carefully and pick the product which has a high commission program
- Step 3- Create excellent content that best suits to your affiliate product
- Step 4- Build an audience if you haven’t one already
- Step 5- Promote your affiliate product to that audience through your website content
How can you find affiliate partners?
Finding an affiliate partner is easy, and you can do it by searching in Google. However, all affiliate marketing sites aren’t created equal. So you should only choose that pays well.
Here are some popular affiliate partner websites that you should check out:
- ClickBank – One of the old and trusted and free affiliate providing website and
- ShareASale – Affiliate network providing website founded in 2000, who offer pay-per-sale, pay per lead and pay per click program for bloggers
- Rakuten Affiliate Network (Previously Linkshare) – Currently, the largest affiliate network, having more than 10 million affiliate partners
- Amazon Associates – One of the largest and miscellaneous affiliate products provider
#2. Create Job Boards on Your Website
Job boards quietly become such a popular way to make money online in recently years, and it is not going to stop in near future.
Many entrepreneurs are creating job boards on their website such as Problogger Job Boards.
Even though many people are opening job boards but still lots of blank space are available for many marketers.
If you create your job board in a specific niche (home improvement or pest control,etc.) you’ll have less competition and a good opportunity to target qualified audiences.
You have to create a separate webpage that allows companies to post job vacancies. When a company ask you to list their job application you can charge them a little amount of fee for the listing. And also if someone fill the job application.
Note – This option might be not more favorable for the small websites who has less traffic. But, you have a website that is getting a good amount of traffic then you should try this method of making money.
The more you’ll have visitors, more job applications will be filled. You can use paid plugin like WP Job Board.
#3. Write Product Reviews
If you are good with words, don’t waste your creative talent. Why don’t you use this talent to make money by writing reviews for products and services and get paid?
Yes, write reviews and you will get paid.
Writing reviews are almost same as affiliate marketing the only difference is, you have to write a detailed review about a product and post it on your website.
However, you can write reviews on every kind of products, from tools, books, movies, products, software anything which you think you can tell people better about it.
But, I wouldn’t advice you to write about multiple items. If you are a digital marketer who knows digital marketing very well can’t write a review about medicine or physics book.
Writing for a wrong audience will only cost your time, and you will get nothing. So it would be nice for you to write a review that best fit for your audience.
Following are some sites that offer product reviews services:
Writing reviews is an excellent opportunity to earn extra money from your website. Understand the power of your words and turn it into cash.
If you are serious about making money from blogging, you should choose multiple money making options.
All you need to know is learn how to use your website traffic and audience in a right way. So you can sell your product without bothering your audience.
70% of bloggers never make a single penny from their website because they don’t know how to earn money from blogging.
If you will apply the above mentioned tactics today! I am sure within thirty days you will be able to generate enough money.
