Earning money

Three Simple Ways to Monetise (earn from ) your Blog

Lots of people write blogs but not all are able to earn from them. It may be that you want to just receive enough income to pay for your web hosting or maybe you want to earn enough to live on – whichever you want to do here are three simple steps.

1 Add Google Adsense to your blog. It’s simple and if you are using WordPress (like this website) there are lots of great plugins to help. You may only earn a few pennies per click but over time the money will start to appear for websites with traffic. There are two downsides – first adverts can encourage visitors to leave your site and second Google Adsense does not payout until you have built up quite a stash (£60 for the UK).

2 Add some affiliate links. I have two main streams of affiliate link income – Amazon and Awin. Awin has a very broad range of partners and great link builder and reporting tools.

3. Link to any products and services you sell on other sites. So if you have an Etsy Shop, sell photos on Shutterstock or just a few products on eBay – link to them. You may also find that there is also an affiliate scheme for your shop too. – you can use Awin for Etsy and eBay has a partner program.

Last, you must also create great content – the more you add the more visitors you get and the more you earn.

So these are my three simple and best ways to earn money from your blog. Easy to install and manage – these will help you earn more.
