Many individuals today, have more than one blog and they spend lot of time in marketing their blogs. So, blogging today is not just about passion for writing but it is becoming a profession.
Preparing your blog
Although it might sound very simple but its not that easy to monetize your blog. A ‘how to’ guide has to be followed systematically to gear up your blog to fetch money. The blog layout has to be attractive and built in a way that there is ample space to post banner ads and links. The color scheme and visuals of the blog should be catchy and interesting to hook the readers to the blog. The content has to be original and of good quality. Many bloggers do not pay attention to what they post. They write in a hurry and they just keep filling their blogs with content. Well, quality matters more than quantity these days. It is not important to have a daily post but it is important to have genuine content which makes sense. Errors in spelling and grammar not only reduce value of the article but also de-motivate the reader. So, you have to convince readers about the authenticity of your content and your opinion should matter in their lives. However, the brands showcased on the blog should also have some connection with the topics of the blog or the main theme. For example a blog on food advertising about clothing will not be able to generate much traffic or sales to the merchant website. This is because of the only reason that readers will not be able to relate the brand and the blog writing. So, a fashion blog when advertises a fashion product people can link immediately and chances of purchase are much higher.
Keeping the numbers low
Its also important to choose the right brands and the right number of brands. Many bloggers do the mistake of registering with a host of affiliate programs and they end up in a confused state which shows on their blog. None of the brands get highlighted properly which results in poor traffic or sales on merchant website. Earning money from affiliate marketing programs is hence, not easy but definitely faster and more convenient than a full time job. Since, this is a commission based earning the amount of money earned solely depends on the amount of sales or traffic generated on the merchant website through your blog. Merchants measure the sales with advanced tracking systems which give real time data and can also track the commissions. Even the blogger can see the analytics and accordingly devise strategies for better earning. So, keep the basics right and start earning today.
