4 Ways To Make Money With Your Affiliate Marketing Blog

You know, as I was writing this post I was thinking about what it is exactly that makes blogging such an effective business model?

What Makes Blogging So Effective?

Despite the fact that it can take a while to generate a reasonable level of income from blogging, the thing that makes blogging so effective is the fact that you can communicate with your audience a lot easier than sending an email.

That’s not to say that you shouldn’t bother with email marketing because that would be a mistake in my opinion, but you don’t have to worry much about filters keeping your messages from getting to your subscribers and you can communicate a lot faster with your readers which is why…

Blogging has become an incredibly popular way to communicate with your audience and make money online at the same time. The ease and simplicity of starting a blog gives just about anyone with a desire to make money from the internet an opportunity to do it. One of the easiest and effective business models an individual can use is the affiliate marketing blog model.

The Secret To Monetizing Your Blog Effectively

The secret to achieving success when monetizing your blog lies in being able to develop the ability to match high converting affiliate products with the right market.

There are 4 ways that you can do this and this article will briefly touch on each of these ways.

1. Banner ads.

Banner ads are great way to attract the attention of your visitors as they enter your site read your content and shop around on the advertising provided. Another benefit of banner ads is that once you are able to attract enough targeted traffic to your blog, you can charge a monthly or quartely fee to others who would like to take advantage of the traffic your getting.

2. Clickbank hop ads.

Clickbank hop ads are very similar to the ever popular Google Adsense, except that the products on offer pay out anywhere from 50% – 75% commission. With the right offers to match the traffic you’re getting, this method of monetization could be incredibly profitable.

3. Google Adsense.

Hundreds if not thousands of people have successfully earned six figure incomes with the Adsense model. In effect Google matches their ads to the content that you are providing for the market you’re targeting. The key to succeeding with this model is to find profitable keywords that advertisers are shelling out big bucks for and as their ads are placed on your site, you could be making $2 -$5 per click every time someone clicks on one of the ads.

4. CPA or cost per action.

This method of monetization involves earning commissions every time a customer clicks through an ad and completes an action by way of filling out an application or entering a simple piece information like  a zip code or email address.

Most cost per action offers are basically lead generation devices for larger brick and mortar corporations. In effect you are being paid for every lead you generate and in some cases that percentage may increase if the visitor becomes a customer.

There are many other ways that you can make money with an affiliate marketing blog, but any one or a combination of these methods will more than make the effort to provide the content worthwhile.
