1. Make Money By Advertising On Your Blog
There are 5 mostly do-able ways in advertising on your blog, it's not just about showing ads on your blog. You can do more different advertising on your blog such as:
PPC and CPM advertising
Sell direct advertisements on your blog
Selling text links on your blog
Using popup ads to monetize your blog
Publishing sponsored reviews to get fast money
Now read these five methods in details.
1.1 PPC and CPM advertising on your blog
PPC is stand for "Pay Per Click" many times we read it CPC "Cost Per Click" and the CPC sounds professional to many pro bloggers.
It's something like a advertiser will pay you a flat fee for any click you get on ads showing on your blog by the advertiser.
Most trusted and used CPC ad-networks:
1. Google Adsense www.adsense.com
Google adsense is a super-doper CPC advertising network allowing you to show ads on your blogs for free with many features like bidding (cpc or cpm) choosing from many lucrative ad sizes and many other.
If you are a newbie I recommend you to start earning money using Google adsense a free and amazing program for all websites, blogs, apps owners.
2. Media.net www.media.net
Yahoo! Bing Network the media.net is a nice alternative to Google adsense and provide you a cleaner way to show ads on your blog.
They uses a technology to determine best ads for your blog and pay on imperssions, also many times this network shows ads just like Google adsense.
CPM is stand for "Cost Per Thousand (CPT)" as in CPM- M is represents Latin M and stand for thousand, which means its a cost per thousand way of showing ads on your blog.
For example: If you charge $5 CPM on your blog, it means an advertiser must pay $5 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad get from from your blog.
1.2 Sell direct advertisements on your blog
Are you getting good traffic on your blog? and don't want CPC or CPM ad-networks to low your earnings? you can start with direct advertising.
It's a simplest way to generate money monetizing your blog. Just create a "advertise with us" page on your blog and add stats of your blog such as Traffic per month, Impressions per month, available ad-spaces and rankings of your blog (Page-rank or Alexa).
If you want a automatic system for selling direct ads on your blog to set a monthly flat budget you can start using some networks such as:
1. Buy Sell Ads www.buysellads.com
If you want to automate selling ads on your blog, you can start with BSA. Its a dedicated ad-marketplace for website/blog owners to sell and buy ads from various available ad-spots.
Only bad thing with BSA is they don't accept low traffic blogs that means if you are a newbie in blogging, you can't get their services.
2. Publicity Clerks www.publicityclerks.com
Its a great alternative to BuySellAds for those can't get their blog approved by BSA.
They will accept you with decent traffic (500 or 700 page-views/day) and you can set your price for ads on monthly basis.
You can payout your earnings via PayPal only!
1.3 Selling text links on your blog
If you are not satisfied with above steps you can try this. Links selling is another way of generating revenue from your blog.
I recommend you to use some networks like Infolinks for selling text-based-ads on your blog. As link selling is not a good way, but showing ads on different words can be a revenue stream.
Here's the top two link-ads networks:
They are good at in-text advertising and pay you on Pay Per Click system, the double-underlined text shows the ads after clicking or hovering. You can payout your earnings even via Western Union and PayPal.
Its a awesome alternative to Infolinks and gives you the handle on your text-link-ads. You can get your earnings (minimum $25) via PayPal, Check and EFT, and they also offer paid reviews.
1.4 Using popup ads to monetize your blog
I accept, that popups will make your readers annoying with your blog and many professionals call it a idiotic way of monetizing a blog.
But, Belief me. Its still a good way to earn money "if you are new to blogging and want instant money".
As I have a good program to tell you that they pay you daily and you can get your earnings in your PayPal account even if your earnings or $5.
www.PopAds.com is a great platform, join there and start getting money on daily basis.
1.5 Publishing sponsored reviews to get fast money
Thinking about why to create out standing content for free and mentioning great products or websites in your blog posts?
You should try offering paid reviews as sponsored reviews, in this you will be paid for doing what your love.
You just have to review a product or service online and you can even set your own price per review.
www.SponsoredReviews.com is a platform for you to get paid reviews to publish on your blog for a flat rate, and rate may depend on your blog rankings and traffic.
2. Making Money With Webinars!

What you have to do is: Make sure your product is up to date and have more information than your webinar with amazing testimonials and its a specific one.
For example: If you are ready to hold a "Health" related webinar for people to aware about a specific disease than you can mention your "Pills" or a digital product to attendees which can help them fight with that disease.
2.3 Do affiliate marketing in webinars
Can't create your own product? don't have time or much knowledge for this? start with affiliate marketing. Its simple just join any refer to earn program and refer specific products to your webinar audience, when they buy you'll get your commissions.
Not just affiliate marketing, you can do even more with webinars.
Just select a specific product which is worthy for your webinar audience and ask that product's owner to show his love.
Ask him to share your webinar details on his social media profiles and if he found your webinar good enough, he will dare to advertise your webinar for free (as he will get many sells from your single webinar).
Yes! It happens.
Many times a little webinar converts more than imaginations.
I was surprised when Clément Delangue, head of marketing at Mention, told me they made $10,000 in just the first two hours after their initial webinar > inc.com
If they can, then we you can't?
