Want to get paid to blog? Maybe quit your day job too? There's many ways to monetize a blog, and you can generate revenue using advertisements, product placements, sponsored posts, affiliate products, surveys and many more. There are some dangers you need to watch out for, though, but the most ethical and effective ways to get paid blogging will be shown.
- If you want to monetize your blog with material products like wedding favors, pillows, and such, then try finding unique items. If you rely on drop-shippers, you might run into price competition.
- Search clickbank.com for quality info products where the creator will give you a money back guarantee.
- Place Adsense on your blog if you are generating 100 or more visitors per day. It doesn't pay much. However, its one of the easiest revenue sources.
- PayPerPost.com will give you a fee for posting a product review on your blog. However, keep in mind, a lot of bloggers consider undisclosed advertisements very unethical. So only post reviews where you are allowed to disclose that it's a paid product review. Most people don't realize that a lot of so called television news stories are really sponsored paid slots. That's why there is so many stories about the next health food, next health study, next financial product. Bloggers don't like this.
