In this economy, people are constantly searching for ways to supplement their regular income. This includes getting a second or even a third job to do just this. The internet is one such opportunity where one can earn a stable income, if you know how. There are certainly many ways to earn money online. One such way is through blogging.
Contrary to popular beliefs, having a blog can certainly earn you money online. This is can be done by having advertisements on your blog. This could be in the form of having text or even banner advertisements from Google appearing on your blog. This strategy is known as "Pay Per Click" or PPC in short. Google will share its revenue with you when someone clicks on the advertisement on your blog. If the topic of your blog is from a competitive niche, you could even earn $30 per click.
The other way to earn money on blog is to promote an affiliate campaign. Affiliate marketing is slightly from "Pay Per Click" in that it requires the person who clicks on the advertisement to buy a product. When this happens, you will be paid a commission or fee. Depending on the affiliate program you join, this commission could be a percentage of the price paid for the product.
If the product you are promoting has several "One Time Offer" (or commonly known OTO) after the initial purchase, this commission could certainly stake up.
There are many affiliate programs that you can join to make money from your blog. One such program is ClickBank. The products on ClickBank are normally information products such as eBooks, home study courses or even software.
The other interesting affiliate program that you can join is Amazon Associates. While many of us think that Amazon is all about books, we cannot be more wrong. We can certainly find lots of interesting products within Amazon. This includes clothes, home furnishing and others. You can even find spare part for cars being sold in Amazon.
In terms of rewards, ClickBank would pay as much as 75% of the purchase price as commission. Amazon Associates on the other hand, would pay from 4% upwards for your effort.
If your blog is an authority in this subject matter, you could even sell advertisement space. It is not uncommon for large corporates to pay as much as four thousand dollars per month as advertisement fees.
