The biggest blog mistake I ever made was monetizing my blog too early. I slapped on a whole variety of affiliate banners and ads on top of the maximum number of Adsense units. Each of these ads were strategically placed and demanded visual attention from any visitor that wandered onto my blog.
The worst part of it was that I actually set up pop-ups for another blog because I was getting 15,000 page views a day and I wanted to desperately monetize it.
The earnings were certainly nice but I’m quite sure it definitely affected my readership negatively. Needless to say, I ended my brief flirtation with aggressive advertising pretty soon.
As I’ve started blogging and reading more blogs, I gradually came to realize that monetization shouldn’t be the main factor when you are trying to build an authority blog in any specific niche. Developing trust, readership and traffic through effective branding and strong content should be of primary importance.
I finally broke up with Adsense last week as well..
I’ve been using Adsense on Reefer Ideas since Day one. We’ve shared a close relationship for four months but a week ago, I finally mustered enough bravo to dump Adsense and remove all ads on this blog.
Why? Because she was simply not earning me enough money to warrant any continued placement.
I had two options, either go all out for Adsense optimization or remove the ads and direct all focus purely to the content. Going all out meant replacing my cute little pictures with the ugly Adsense square unit at the top of each post.
I chose the latter option and gradually removed most of the ads until I only had a few Adsense units left at several weak locations. This made me a few dollars a day and I eventually decided to eliminate all of them because she was becoming an eyesore.
It was refreshing to be separated from Adsense, whom I’ve been together since forever. All my blogs have used Adsense as a monetization tool and being free of it for Reefer Ideas was really liberating. This also allowed me to more accurately test the potential of other monetization strategies like affiliate programs.
This doesn’t mean I won’t have any more randy trysts with other ad networks in the future, just that I’ll definitely be more picky when it comes to renting out advertising space on Reefer Ideas.
Benefits of not Monetizing Early
While intentionally withdrawing from monetization might lose you a few dollars a day, the advantages of doing so far outweigh the loss in monetary benefits. Not monetizing at an early stage allows you to:
  • Place stronger visual and mental emphasis on your content, which ultimately determines the size of your reader base.
  • Maximize the real estate on your blog. You can use the best spots allocated for ads to display your popular posts, social widgets or other material.
  • Develop a unique and strong design for your blog. Without the necessity of blending ads on a website, you can focus on creating a strong blog design and template that draws attention.
  • Stress the importance of visitor satisfaction and demonstrate your emphasis of adding value to a reader over profit motives. This possibly increases the objectivity or weight of your opinions.
  • Increase your potential for getting incoming links. Bloggers are less inclined to link to a website that’s plastered with ads and all types of junk.
  • Optimize your website for social networks. This is especially important when you promote linkbaits on social websites like Digg and Reddit. For example, an ad-free blog with a strong design is definitely more attractive to StumbleUpon users who are not looking for specific material.
  • Retain search engine traffic. When most search engine visitors arrive at your website looking for specific information, you have a chance to retain them as a future reader when your blog appeals to them both through your content and visual design.
Monetizing from the Beginning – A Good Idea?
Some have suggested that monetizing your blog from the onset allows your readers to be accustomed to ads right from the beginning.
By exposing the reader early on, it builds their tolerance for advertising and reduces the likelihood of creating nasty surprises that come in the form of unsightly ads.
Here is the main reason why I think this reasoning is flawed:
  • New visitors arrive at your blog everyday – As more content is developed and optimized, you’ll see more search engine visitors who have never been to your blog before. Visitors will also arrive at your blog through links on other blogs and websites. All these visitors are ‘untapped’ or not familiarized with the advertising on your blog. As we all know, first impressions are important.
This doesn’t mean however, that you shouldn’t monetize your blog. You should, but optimum results will only be achieved when you’ve built up a large reader base or developed a strong daily traffic ratio.
When should I start to Monetize my Blog?
There isn’t a definite time frame because this will depend on the level of traffic your blog receives. A good guideline would be to ask if your blog currently receives enough traffic to make putting ads up worth the effort and space.
Of course, you’ll have to define the idea of profitability. Will you be happy with making a few dollars a day? Or do you want to aim for more traffic and readership before fully monetizing?
This also depends on your blogging objectives. Is your goal to make money through blogging by any means necessary? Or do you aim to leverage the exposure that blogging brings to promote your brand/business/service?
Long term vs. Short term Monetization
Are you building a flagship blog and planning to make an authority in your niche? Or is your blog just part of many others in your arsenal? You have two options: focusing on one blog and making it the main profit generator or creating many blogs to diversify your earning options.
Branding and content is obviously two of the main things you need to emphasis over monetization, if you aim to create one strong blog that serves as a base for all your future earnings.
Long term monetization really means drawing in readers like bees to a honey comb and only after you’ve captured their attention, monetize them through gradual, targeted advertising. Don’t underestimate the power of affiliate links when your recommendation reaches thousands daily.

Diffrent ways to Make money Blogging

Understanding blogging will be a slow but tedious task. Getting paid from blogging also will be slow. As we have covered before , blogging is about amassing a huge following of people who like and read your topic of discussion.

There are hundreds of blogs being created every day. Why? Because it is becoming one of the easiest ways to make money. Problem is bloggers don’t make money right away and they give up. Well, you do not have to have a lot of traffic to your blog to make money. It is just a matter of finding the right way to make money from your blog. Marketing your blog to get traffic can easily be done because search engines like Google love blogs.
The reason why search engines like Google love blogs because blogs continually have new content. Pinging your blog whenever you do a new post, commenting on related blogs with a link back to your blog, and social bookmarking your blog posts are all effective ways to market your blog. Once you just do those things you can begin to make money by these 10 easy ways:

Ad Units: 12/19/2012

Monetize your blog with ad units. You can get ad units from Google Adsense, Yahoo Publisher, Revenue Pilot, and other contextual ad sites. Contextual ads sites show ads on your blog that are related to your blog niche. Every time one of these ads is clicked you get paid for it. The amount you get paid for every click varies. This used to be one of the more popular ways to get paid online but it’s becoming more difficult as Google (the most used contextual ad site) changes its rules and policies.

Sell Ad Space: 12 / 20/2010

Selling ad space on blogs has been popular for some time. Usually you can find people in your niche who will pay for ad space on your blog. There is many ways to go about this but the easiest way is to just setup an advertise page. On that page you will want to talk about the different sizes of the ads you offer and how many page views and unique visitors you receive every month. The more information you give to possible advertisers, then the better chance you will have making the sale.

Write Paid Reviews:12/21/2010

Paid reviews were really popular a year ago but have died down a bit. However, if you are looking to make some quick cash than they are one of the easier ways to make money on your blog. However, the one problem you may have is that many of these web sites require that your blog be at least three months old or have a certain page rank. Some of these sites are the following: PayPerPost, SponsoredReviews, Blogsvertise, Smorty and others. You will review a service or a product on your blog and get paid for it. Word of warning though, Google does penalize you if they happen to catch you doing this.

Sell Your Products: 12/22/2010

If you have a product then blog about it. You already have people interested in your niche or topic so why not offer your product to them. They probably won’t hate your product if they already like your blog. You have to make sure to take advantage of any money opportunity you have.

Sell Other Peoples Products:12/23/2010

This goes in the category of becoming an affiliate. Selling affiliate products on your blog is as simple as signing up for a program and advertising it on your blog. You do not have to do anything besides selling it to your readers. Writing a post about something you are trying to sell can always help too.

Sell An E-Book:12/24/2010

This basically goes with selling your own product but it deserves its own category. Like I said in a selling your own product section, people are already interested in your niche or topic so why not sell your product to them. In this case you are selling them an e-book you created. Lots of people make some good money creating and selling their own e-book. Your e-book doesn’t have to be real fancy. As long as you give them information that you tell them is in your e-book you should be ok.

Ask For Donations: 12/25/2010

Asking for donations is one of the simplest ways to get some cash. However, there are a lot of people that just do not like to hand out cash so they probably will have to be a very religious reader if they are going to donate to you. To get religious readers it is going to take you quite a few months. So don’t look to get money right away.

Sell Your Service: 12/26/2010

If you have some service such as graphic design, web site design, story writing, financial consultation, or some other service then offer it from your blog. It would just be another way to make money for your service.

Sell Your Cafe Press Items: 12/27/2010

This is a web site where you can create your own T-shirts, coffee mugs, calendars, posters and other stuff that you can sell. You get a percentage of the sale so why not create some products and sell them on your blog. Create products that are related to your niche or topic and you should be able to sell some of your items.

Point Blog to Your Paying Article: 12/28/2010

If you are one of the people that write articles for a site that pays you a performance fee like Associated Content, then you should introduce your blog audience to those articles and make money. Even though this is not a popular way to make money anymore, you can still make money writing articles for these kinds of web sites.

With these points of views you have noticed a date on when I will be covering that topic in full. Please take all of the suggestions to heart , although already knows by many if put to use with a proper schedule you also could be making millions.

A little more info on me.

I recently read an article that detailed how to make $30,000 annually by writing and maintaining a blog. Much of the article included abbreviations - like CPC and EPC, among others - that I still don't understand after two years of blogging on my own website.  I'm not sure I want to understand what they mean. I got into blogging to write and market my work, not to be a corporate advertising portal. However, I do need to feed my family, and my chosen way to accomplish this necessary goal is to write for money. It turns out that you really can make money blogging.  So how do you do it? I've read many articles about this theoretical possibility, but not many about how to find these blogging jobs. Here are a few ways to turn theory into practice.  Define Your Areas of Expertise  When I quit my teaching job to write for a living, I applied for any writing job that looked at all promising, and even some that didn't. My favorite experience involves an ad seeking writers to supply movie reviews for a website. I liked to write, and I liked to watch movies, so I thought it was a great opportunity.  I submitted the necessary materials for the initial screening and after a couple of days I was invited to participate in the next step of the hiring process. Enthusiastically, I clicked on the link, and up popped, "DO YOU LIKE TO WATCH P*RN?" in bright red letters.  My mouth gaped open as I stared at my computer screen.  The simple answer was no, in fact, I didn't. But I have to admit that for about 30 seconds, I considered whether or not I could just watch it so I could write for money.  Then I decided I was crazy, and closed the website. Clearly, I needed a strategy.  The easy way to make money blogging is to write for websites in your particular area of expertise. For me, this was easy. I had been an elementary school teacher for nine years, so I started to seek out writing jobs in the education field.  Once I narrowed down my area of expertise, my job search was no longer overwhelming. It became easier to find legitimate opportunities, and I could more thoughtfully research and apply for promising positions.  Start Stalking  After I narrowed down my focus to educational writing, I began hunting down opportunities. I wasn't stalking in a criminal way, but I was definitely devoted to finding a job writing for money in my chosen field. I signed up through Yahoo Groups with people in the same area of expertise as well as freelancers looking for writing jobs. I looked on Craigslist in the "Writing/Editing" and "Writing Gigs" areas, as well as "Education," on a regular basis. I subscribed to writing newsletters that publicized professional writing opportunities, and looked specifically for those in the field of education.  I also scouted out educational websites. It will take a bit of research, but commit time to finding the websites that apply to your area of expertise and check them daily. Find and read the blogs in the professional areas in which you would like to write, occasionally making comments and linking your own website back to them. Networking, as well as the previously mentioned strategies, will help you get to know other professional writers and get a feel for available opportunities.  Before I found my current blogging job, I used all of the previously mentioned resources to apply for jobs that included test-writing, writing copy for educational websites, curriculum development, and transcription for the hearing-impaired. And, of course, educational blogging positions. Try Again...And Again  All of these strategies combined will diversify your job search, but here's the most important piece. Don't give up. Apply for every legitimate writing opportunity - many of these include blogging jobs.  I applied for several jobs before getting past the first level of submitting my resume and writing sample. But I didn't give up - consistency refined my search as well as my submitted material.  I remember thinking that writing for money was a dream that was never going to come true. It turns out that, happily, I was wrong. My job-hunting strategies helped me find a job blogging professionally for an educational company, and my children continue to be fed. It's a great balance.
