It’s hard to escape the hype surrounding blogs these days. Blogs are often used as diaries where people write about their daily happenings, or comment about popular news in the world. There are also niche blogs which provide information targeted to a sub-niche. However, blogs can also be used as a tool for multiple sources of income. This article will discuss the ways to create income from blogs and how to maximize it.
The first thing you need to do before setting up a blog is to find a niche. This can be a broad topic like golf or gardening, or it can be a sub-niche like golf swing tips or gardening techniques. Usually it’s best to target a sub-niche where you can more easily dominate the market and create a loyal readership.
Next, you need to decide on what income streams you want to implement on your blog. These income streams include Amazon, Clickbank, Adsense and a mailing list. You should implement 2-3 of those income strategies on your blog to maximize your earnings. Any more than that and you may confuse your visitor.
Amazon and Clickbank affliate links are something you definitely want to use in your blog. Affiliate links are simply links which you refer to a visitor, and if they buy a product from your link, you will be paid a commission.
Adsense, the Google advertising program, is a way of displaying relevant ads to your visitors. You will get paid for every click-through you receive from your visitors. These can range from a few cents to even a few dollars.
Lastly, you’d want to build a mailing list. You can then follow-up with your list with relevant affiliate product offers and information about the topic. This allows you to build a relationship with your readers and increase your profits. The way this is done is by using an autoresponder like Aweber or Get Response.
You see, a blog can be as profitable as you want it to be. Treat it as a business, and your readers will take you seriously..
