One of the surefire ways to make income online is to
bring advertisers to your blog. Whether you are promoting their products or
putting their banners or ads on your site, you are being paid a percentage or
commission of anyone who buys their products or clicks their ads.
But how do you make money this way? How do you find
advertisers – should you go for individuals or companies? What is the best way
that you should start?
If companies want to advertise in your site, the first
thing they’re going to do is to make sure that many people are visiting your
blog. When they find out that probably around 10 people drop by each day, then
you are not probably a cinch to win the “best in advertisement”
award. You need at least around 10,000 views a month to get into the ad network
or around 200,000 views a month if you are going for the traditional
advertisers. In short, you need to direct people to your site. This is called
As a side note, this is important for any type of business that you are trying to conduct online whether you’re trying to attract new clients as a chiropractor Fairlawn or selling your wares on your own website. Clicks matter.
Here’s a hint: It would be helpful if your blog would
have a particular topic so advertisers that are connected with your blog can
reach their audience faster and easier. For instance, your travel blog can have
travel agencies or travel airlines as advertisers; whereas your sports blog can
have sports drinks or anything related to sports as advertisers.
Be Visible to Advertisers
So how then should you find advertisers? On your blog,
put a link that says “advertise with us”. Advertisers can come out
with a percentage or a commission. This is based on how many people visit your
website each day. You can also write a blog post telling people that you are
looking for advertisers, the location and the spots which are available. As you
have an email list, you should also email your subscribers to let them know
that you are looking for advertisers.
You can also visit popular blogs and contact their
advertisers. Come up with a proposal, how much they are going to get and what
kind of traffic you are getting for your blog.
But still the best of being visible to advertisers is
you need to have people come to you. You need to build your traffic. This way,
(believe it or not) advertisers are the ones begging for you to put their ads
on your blog!
Look Out for an Ad Network
All you need to
do is to register and sign up – just out in your mailing address and your
legitimate phone number. Google will be the one contacting you.
Once you are approved you need to figure out the size
of your ad units which come in different shapes. Add tags o allow these
advertisers for a particular ad; for example, a leader board at the top of your
For the payment, you get a certain percentage when
visitors click on these tabs. At first, this is okay but then you may want to
receive income by showing your ads to your advertisers, depending on the appeal
of your blog.
