A roundup of complete available programs to monetize your blog for making maximum hits from content. All of you’re quite known about Adsense which is a renowned ad publisher network specially organized for niche based websites for 100% monetize-ability and paying 5x more than any ordinary ad network. After Google Adsense the bloggers second most choice is Affiliate promotion which is sometimes the first choice for bloggers like Darren Rowse, Harsh Agrawal, Illeane Smith and more people have chosen Affiliate promotion as the top unbeatable way to make money online.

Of course out of these two favorite ways there are several ways a blogger can make money online. Here is what I have decided to show you how many ways you can monetize your blog to pull maximum income from internet through blogging.

Method – 1. Monetize with CPC Ad Networks

CPC(cost-per-click) is a form of advertising which is very common and most popular medium for bloggers to generate higher revenue with banner and text advertisements. When talking about CPC it comes to our mind about Google Adsense, right? Generally Adsense is the only ad network which works fine for niche based websites and 100% monetizeable with blogs than regular HTML websites. Today it’s bit difficult to get approved by Google Adsense but if you seriously create a blog that adds value to content, having a professional design, properly fit for SEO, no bad effect on content creation and distribution, original and authoritative blog posts and trust worthy written articles can be the anatomy of a successful blog which will get approved by Google Adsense by Max. 3-4 months after initialization (no matter how unique traffic it generates).

Monetize with CPC Ad Networks
If you think Adsense is still unreachable for your blog then you may try some of the best Adsense alternatives below

Method – 2. Monetize with CPM Ad Networks

After CPC advertising method bloggers most favorite ad network is CPM advertising since it requires impressions to generate higher revenue no clicks are needed. Somebody still doesn’t understand what is CPM advertising and How it really works without having any click from visitors?

Let’s explain; CPM is known ad Cost per Milli or Cost per 1000 Impressions so this means you will only be credited money for 1000 impressions completed because the equation says

Your site generates 500 unique visitors per day, 700+ page views and 1500 ad impressions

If the advertiser pays $0.15 per 1000 impressions then your earning per day

CPM Earning = (Total impressions/1000 ) * Rate of 1000 impressions
= (1500/1000) * 0.15
= $0.225

Note: To accurate your CPM calculation use this CPM calculator [powered by clickZ.com]

If your ad impressions go up then earnings will definitely rise and it doesn’t require how much clicks you get for that ad space or you will not be credited extra penny for clicks. It may happen, per 1000 impressions can generate 1000 clicks or even 0 click, the advertiser will not pay you any extra more for clicks he will only pay for impressions.

CPM method is sometime better for Advertisers but not always suppose if a certain advertiser gets only few clicks spending huge for 1000 impressions then definitely it creates loss for his ad campaign but probably publishers may get more money according to his/her ad impressions.

Below are some of the best CPM ad networks to start working with even slow traffic sites.

Method – 3. Monetize with CPA Ad Networks

CPA is quite a different medium of advertising comparing to CPC and CPM method it’s because in this form of advertising an Advertiser will only pay to Publisher for a certain action by a visitor delivered from a referred link. This is less risky ad campaign for Advertisers and more effective, profitable amongst all the advertising methods.

Probably publishers have less chance to make higher income unless or until his/her visitors access those referred links and take actions like filling any form, signing up for email lists, taking any survey, purchasing any product, or any specific task defined be the certain advertiser.

To accurately count CPA formula use CPA calculator [powered by clickZ.com]

CPA is best suitable for websites having 100K+ unique visitors per month and majority are organic. Here are top 10 CPA ad networks to get started making money from your blog or site.

Method – 4. Monetize with Inline Text Ads

Inline texts advertising is also popular for blogs which feature specific niche based content and have decent traffic per day. In this form of advertising you need to install specific codes(provided by the advertising site) close to </body> tag and wait until the ad-code gets blended with your site content. Then after few minutes visit your blog and see some of your keywords are highlighted with underline, dashed or even bold characters and while placing cursor on that link a popup ad appears.
Monetize with Inline Text Ads
When a visitor clicks on that ad you will be credited money according to CPC formula. For US, UK, Canada traffic you can generate more money then visitors from Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

Method – 5. Monetize with Popup Ads

Popup ads are not recommended for blog sites because it hampers readers to read content attentively by appearing a popup ad always with refreshing the page. Nevertheless still lots of people use this form of advertising to monetize their site to make money. Popup ads are close to same as Inline text ads but in this case visitors don’t need to put cursor on ad links but it automatically appears per refreshing pages.
Monetize with Popup Ads

Method – 6. Sell Direct Ad Spaces/Ad Links

To sell direct ad spaces what a blog needs to have least qualities do you know? Yeah it requires a strong empire on the web regarding niche type, content type, visitors type, content quality, blog authority, domain age, domain authority on search engines, social channels conditions(Facebook likes, Twitter followers, Google+ followers, Email subscribers even Pinterest followers), daily traffic ratio, monthly unique traffic, monthly page impressions, monthly page views etc.

Why i talked all these things? Look all the above conditions prove the authority of your blog and thus you can get offers from many advertisers to sell direct ad spaces to your site. Different advertisers have different targets, right? Someone looks for social channels conditions to estimate their target reach, some unique traffic, some traffic type etc. so you don’t know what are their targets so you have to target all for maximum attention by advertisers.
Sell Direct Ad Spaces/Ad Links
If your site proves above conditions you will easily get approved by Buysellads, Tribal fusion, Isocket etc. top networks who help to sell ads to particular advertisers.

Method – 7. Make Money with Sponsored Reviews

When your blog is popular at the field having targeted audience then many companies will contact you to feature their products on your site that relate your content and audience type. You can help people to reach you by simply placing a contact form on your site or directly providing them your mail address so that it will be preferable to directly contact your sponsored advertisers.

Look, at the beginning of your site none of the people will come to pay you for writing reviews about their products. So what you can do? Write some free reviews on products that you already use i.e. softwares, premium services, keyword research tool like Long tail pro, or any paid service. Your review must feature the product’s pros and cons with appropriate information, suggest people whatever you feel about that product, how it benefits you and add your recommendations at the end of your article.

After writing the review add a link on your site’s sidebar also add five star badge so that it can attract visitors and advertisers to read indepth.

The advertisers will only be attracted when they will see your free reviews perform well across the audience, I mean getting positive and convertible responses from your audience and your visitors are also willing to purchase the same product you use. If you don’t use any product yet then you can try trial copy of any service.

Method – 8. Promote Third party Products/Affiliate Promotion

Affiliate marketing is the very oldest and most common method of making money for companies and promoters before initializing the internet business when it was done manually. But today with the power of internet affiliate marketing has become the most profitable way to grow income for millions of websites. Many people have considered affiliate promotion as the only way of earning or main source of earning from a site. Affiliate promotion is specifically done by placing banner ads on sidebar or anywhere best suitable places on a site and it worths better than reviews because people can easily land on the affiliate page without having to write the sneaky articles that consumes time.

Method – 9. Sell Your Own Services

If you have your own service targeted for specific companies, advertisers, or people then what are you waiting for? sell your services throughout websites. You may need support of programmers to write program that integrate your services with website page so you have to pay that programmer but don’t be miser since you will earn a lot when you start serving huge people online.

Method – 10. Use Your Social Channels to Make Extra Money

Make Money With Facebook: If your facebook page has over 50K, 100K likes then you can make money by promoting affiliate products, or you can have advertisers to promote their products through your facebook page.

Make Money With Twitter: If your twitter profile has huge followers like 20K, 30K, 50K or more then you can sign up for Buysellads and they will help you to make money by tweeting for different companies when you will get paid per tweet.

Make Money With YouTube: If you YouTube channel have 10K, 15K, 30K or more subscribers then you can have chance to get offer from different companies to create videos on products and share with your channel.

Likewise there are tons of ways of making money through social channels.

Method – 11. Make Money with Link Sharing Sites

This is pretty old technique to make money by sharing links. You may know about Adf.ly this company can help you to make instant money by sharing shorten links on your site when you will be paid a little per views. If you can deliver US, UK, Canada, Germany, Australia traffic then you can earn better per view but for Asian traffic you will have to wait up to 2000+ views to reach $1.00 which is great time consuming but you will earn real money and the minimum payout is only $5.00 which is possible to reach by 1 day hard working.
