Personally I feel that blogging is the best choice to speak to the world silently. A lot of popular social media sites are there in front of your eyes to share your blog posts to be viewed by readers from all over the planet. There are so many methods to make money online but you cannot ignore that blogging can also make money.

Just by building a blog/website with less quantity and quality of content is not enough even to buy a single cup of tea. You should have plenty of knowledge about what you are going to write. It is essential to have consistency in blogging and patience to get the output for what you are investing.

Not everyone who is having a blog is called as a blogger. Those who write useful and unique content for the readers will be considered as a blogger in the blogging community. 


Without further delay, moving back to the title of this post. Here, I have listed out 8 important ways to make money from your blog/website. Choose the right monetization method wisely which suits your blog to earn decent income. 

1.Cost Per Click (CPC) or Pay Per Click Ads

Whenever I think about CPC/PPC, the first thing which sparks in my mind is Google Adsense. They pays high for every ad click when compared to other CPC ad networks. It acts as a bridge between advertisers and publishers. Getting approval from Google Adsense is similar to cracking competitive examination. 

Not everyone is enjoying by monetizing their blog using Adsense. Do not get discouraged to apply again for adsense. If your blog is not approved by them, please keep it in mind that it's just a disapproval but not a permanent ban from reapplying. Soon, I will write a post on how to get green signal from Adsense for your blog.

In the meantime, you could try some of the best alternatives to adsense such as:
  • Infolinks (CPV - Cost Per View),
  • Chitika, 
  • Media Net, 
  • Bidvertiser, 
  • Kontera, 
  • Clicksor, 
  • Blogads, 
  • Vibrant Media, 
  • Exit junction, 
  • Pocketcents, 
  • CPX Interactive,
  • Click Booth.  
If you have good traffic to your blog, then getting approval from those above mentioned PPC ad networks. Basically ad networks are thirst for blog traffic. So, if you could feed them by satisfying their expectation, then there is no need to worry about getting approval from them. 


2.Selling Ad Spaces On Your Blog

When your blog receives copious amount of traffic, you might want to earn an extra income. It is possible by selling ad spaces on your blog. One of the best market places to sell ad space is buysellads.com. 


Like Google Adsense, BuySellAds are also following strict policies for the approval of application. If your request was rejected, then suddenly don't make a full stop. Again look for the alternatives to BuySellAds; So that you could make money with a blog by direct advertising without the need of any mediator. 

Some of the alternatives which includes: 
  • PublicityClerks, 
  • Project Wonderful, 
  • Adsella, 
  • Adengage,
  • Blogads. 


    3.Affiliate Marketing

    The term Affiliate marketing is another way of generating money from your blog by promoting advertiser's product, site and service. You should allot a convenient ad space for affiliate ad and hence the visitors will have a glimpse on it which might create an intention to buy something. 

    Whenever a visitor clicks on an affiliate ad link, they will be taken to another site where they can buy the advertised product and you will get paid as commission amount. Commissions are given either as a percentage of sale or solely a fixed type. Earning money from affiliate marketing is purely based on referral process. 

    I can point out some of the best Affiliate marketing programs. Namely: 
    • Amazon.com Associates, 
    • ebay Partner Networks, 
    • Linkshare, 
    • Commission Junction, 
    • ClickBank, 
    • ShareASale, 
    • Shineads.com,
    • CPA Affiliate network. 



    Affiliate marketing is not for all sort of niche blogs. But if you can create trust and relationship between you and the readers, then this method of marketing should works well.


    4.Cost Per Mile (CPM) or Cost Per Thousand Impression Ads


    Cost Per Mile (CPM) or Cost Per Thousand (CPT) is an advertising platform which is good for a blog having numerous traffic from US, UK and Canada. Unlike CPC ad networks, CPT/CPM works in a different way. You will get paid when the visitors makes an impression on ad. You need thousand views or impressions to get paid and that is why it is called as Cost Per Thousand impressions. 

    Try CPM ad networks in case if CPC ad programs doesn't produce decent revenue for your qualified blog. Consider these top 5 CPM advertisement networks if you want to give it a try:

    • Technorati, 
    • CPX Interactive, 
    • Value Click Media, 
    • Tribal Fusion, 
    • Burst Media.


    5.Writing Product Reviews

    Do you like to write honest review about products, sites, services? If yes, then convert those reviews into money by writing paid reviews on your own blog itself. All you need is to select the product which is relevant to your blog's niche and start to write review about it. Don't forget to mention the pros and cons of the product. If possible, give that product a try which can boost your confidence level to present a wonderful review. 

    Remember, the readers would like to visit your blog again and again only if you are supplying useful content for them. Always writing product review will affect the blog's traffic stats because of losing returning visitors. To make an additional income, writing paid reviews is a great idea. 


    Here are 4 websites where you can earn money by writing reviews on all kinds of products such as books, music, movies, clothes, electronics, food, etc and so on: 
    • SponsoredReviews, 
    • ReviewMe, 
    • Blogsvertise, 
    • Linkworth.


    6.Selling your own Stuff

    If you got the talent to make products like ebook, software, themes & launchers, hand-made items, etc, then you are lucky enough to install Buy now button to sell your goods online right from your website for free. Post an attractive picture of the product and try to convince your loyal readers to open their wallet for you.

    Providing quality items for the visitors of your blog will not go in vain because it can build good relationship and hope. Here, you are the advertiser, seller and publisher.


    7.Offering Services

    Offering services is a very good business move. Being an expert in web designing, optimizing web pages (SEO), content creation, programming, ethical hacking and much more useful and needful services can make huge money for a better living. To be competitive in the market, offer some discounts too. Therefore, in such a way you could attract the customers. 

    You don't need to rely on particular ad network to earn money. All that you need is to focus on your skills and develop it because knowledge is power.


    8.Make Money From Donations

    Giving real solutions to problems faced by the readers would definitely impress them. To encourage you, they will offer you a small amount of donation. Suppose if your blog is not monetized by any other means, then this method is useful for you. Try to make thousands of useful blog posts related to your blog's niche for the Internet users. 

    Plugins like Buy Me a Beer, Donate via Pay Pal were used by many bloggers for asking donation. But frequently asking for donation in every blog post will create obsession among readers. 

    Wikipedia is the best example which is a non-profitable organization that ranks under top 10 websites in all search engines. It makes money only through donations. 


    P.S: Make sure that the ad networks which i have listed above accepts blogspot and wordpress blogs also or they accept only top level domains (.com, .net, .org, .edu). For more information, read their FAQ, policy terms & conditions.
