Are you interested in blogging for dollars, with the intent of joining the legion of blogging millionaires? How much can you realistically make out of your blog? Here are 6 lessons to learn by heart in your endeavor to blog for dollars.
1 – Increase Advertising
Use programs such as Blog Ads, Market Banker and Text Link Ads to find advertisers. Even though you have to give up a cut of your revenue, you can earn via cleverly placed text and banner Ads. Fastclick.com is a good option to explore if you have high traffic; you can earn revenue per impression.

2 – Don’t Ignore Google Adsense
Many bloggers use Google Adsense to run Ads. Google Adsense Ads depend on your page content and the type of Ad; you’re paid per click. You may never become rich because of Google Adsense but you will experience a steady stream of revenue that ticks in as you promote your blog. To make money through Google Adsense, you will need to blog on topics that pay well or generate very high traffic.
3 – Become An Amazon Associate
You can become an Amazon Associate and link to Amazon products or pages via text, advertisements or images. You’re paid a commission if your readers click the product links on your blog. You can earn commission for publicizing the products and if an actual sale takes place through your blog. Adding Amazon Associate to your income mix is a good idea as it will supplement your Google Adsense and grow with your blog. You can choose which products to promote with your blogs and tailored Ads. Couple of weeks back I started an Amazon affiliate site where I promote bistro md and diet to go products sometimes using coupons available for them. This has brought me huge success and I am sure it will work for you as well. You can choose any product from millions available at Amazon!
4 – Don’t Forget To Explore Affiliate Programs
Amazon is not the only affiliate program you can explore. You can explore several other affiliate programs whose focus might be on different products and regions. You can enjoy different payment options; pay per click, product referral and lead generation. The important thing is to find a match between the affiliate program and your blog’s niche. You can explore Affiliate Sensor, LinkShare.com and Clix Galore.
5 – Blog About Businesses, Products Or Services
You can start what’s called a ‘business blog’ by talking about businesses, specific products and services. Companies are finding that blogs make a cheap way of communicating with their customers. Businesses will pay you to blog about them, their products and services on your blog.
6 – Ask For Donations
You might wonder why anyone would want to donate money to your blog. You can ask readers to donate to your blog and offer something of value in return. It’s not a charity business; readers can get temporary exposure on your blog while you make a little money by sharing the limelight. You can set up a donation button and use any one of the several e-wallets that are available, such as PayPal, to collect donations. You can display the total amount you’ve received and also provide a list of permanent links to the websites of the people who’ve donated. Some people will donate just to see their name on top of your donators list!
