To say that a blog is simply an online personal journal is already an entirely obsolete idea. For one, there are already corporate blogs which do not limit themselves on personal opinions, but also aids in effective organizational transparency and customer relation. Another reason is the fact that blogs can already provide its owners plenty of ‘monetary advantages’ which no traditional personal journal offers.
Now, some may be thinking how such ‘advantages’ are possible or if they are even ‘really’ possible. This is a normal reaction from new bloggers who only wanted to voice out their feelings through a free and personal space on the web. However, you most likely no longer belong in the mentioned group or you would not be in this page at all. Therefore, we assume that you are here to read, learn and apply to your own page the how to’s of earning from your blog so you can also enjoy the aforementioned monetary benefits. This is exactly how people from the freelance job industry think— taking advantage of the opportunities that abound the web. Below are four of the most common, quick and easy ways of earning from your blog.
Be a Blogger-for-Hire
Visit freelance bidding sites and you will find numerous job postings for for-hire-bloggers. This is the easiest way to earn from your blog by making your blog your portfolio of writing samples. Not only will it open the doors of a ‘blogging career’ for you, but it can also provide you with more writing opportunities such as article writing and web content writing. Who knows? You might even end up as the next copyblogger in the blogosphere or a certified freelance job provider!
Google Adsense is one of the most popular ways of monetizing a blog. Pay-per-Click is considerably a ‘passive’ way to earn from your blog. Your investment will simply be to write good content in your blog and sign up for Google Adsense account. Each visitor who clicks on a Google advertisement in your blog equates to some monetary value for you. It may sound very easy for you, but if you would like to earn some good money from your blog without accepting freelance jobs, you may at least want to look into some free options to drive traffic on your site.
Affiliate Product Advertisements
Apart from Google Adsense, you can also earn from advertisements of affiliate products which are on same niche as your voice in your blog is. These advertisements are relatively attractive and will usually come in the form of banners, images and graphics. They can make your blog look credible and may help you earn from it by serving as a link to the product’s sales page. You earn a percentage of the sales amount as a commission for this kind of advertisements. Again, good content is the king and there will be not much commitment such as that on a regular freelance job.
Writing Review Pages
This will be the last one and it is considerably already a freelance job— a writing job. This way applies to those bloggers who already has established and wide readership. In this case, the affiliate product will ask you to write a review page about their product. The same review page will also contain an in-place text link ad that will route a reader to the product’s sales page once clicked.
These four ways are relatively few as compared to the plentiful opportunities that abound the work-from-home freelance job industry. They are all waiting to be grabbed and all you need is to invest some time to go over each opportunity and determine where you fit. Blogging is just one of the few. Feel free to explore.
