ProBlogger founder Darren Rowse talks about a few strategies to Monetize your blog or website.
Some of the most common and best ways to monetize your site are:
- Affiliante Programs
- Your Hosting Provider will have one!
- E-Book Sales
- I’ve seen a lot of bloggers turn their blog posts into a book at the end of a year.
- Believe it or not, you can make money on YouTube
The ad revenue from AdSense ill be slow as will all the other avenues. It’s going to take at least six months to build a solid foundation and the time it takes to keep those sites up to date isn’t something to take lightly. Very few times is there at “Black Swan” site that ends up pulling serious bucks right out of the gate.
YouTube monetization is a little stickier. You have to look at video production in terms of solid marketing strategies and the ability to monetize if you’d like run ads on top of those. I’ve only scored a few hundred dollars off of youtube so far but it can happen… and a hundred bucks is a hundred bucks.
Don’t get discouraged!
