How can you make some money from your blog (blogs if you have more of them)? First you must produce good quality, original content to attract a lot of traffic. However, having lot of traffic will not automatically make you money.
Because it is like in real world shops. You don't have any use from people staring through your shop window. They must come in and buy something. Your job is to turn your traffic into money.
1. Google AdSense ads
One of the most popular and really useful ways to generate profits from the visitors of your blog is Google's AdSense. Google's AdSense is very easy to use. When your visitors finish reading your posts they want to leave you blog. If they see advertisements relevant to their interest they will click on them to exit your blog and you will cashed in some virtual cents (there are some clicks worth even few dollars!)
To make most from your Google AdSense ads place them in the right places and ensure they blend in to your site so that they appear more like links rather than advertisements to your visitors. If you put your ads in “hot" areas of your blog the greater are the chances that someone will click on them.
Try to mask your ads that they don't really look like ads. Change the colors of advertisement text and links to match the colors on your blog.
2. Affiliate products
If you have some products of your own recommend them to your readers. Or you can recommend some affiliate products. If someone buys from the merchants you recommend, you get to keep a commission (for virtual products it can be up to 75%!). This kind of marketing is very easy to start because you don't have to create your own products or services, and you don’ t really must have your own website. Just find the product you like on some big affiliate product Directory (clickbank.com will be fine for this). Another possibility to find affiliate programs that are related to your blog's theme is to go to is Associateprograms.com (look for affiliate programs that fit best with your niche). Or just type in Google search “affiliate programs" and you will find tons of them.
Then create a post in your blog and do a mini-review on this product. You know - point out its benefits and bad points and include a link to the merchant so the visitor can purchase the product online.
They are other ways to make money from your blog too, but these two are most common and most easy. And remember: more visitors more money. So don't forget to attract them with very good content.
