Run Ads on Your Blog

Now, don’t freak out here! Running ads is the most common way bloggers earn income from their blogs. Bloggers who runs ads get paid each time someone clicks, view, mouse-hover their ads. So don’t worry, ads on your blog are pretty simple to set up.

How To Set Up Ads on Your Blog?

Having ads on your blog doesn’t mean you have to spend time looking for someone, business or company to advertise on your blog. You can pick one of many programs out there that do all the leg work for you. The service for placing ads on a blog that I recommend is called Google Adsense. Even if you are new to blogging, you probably know that Google is a huge internet company that spans the globe. They have connections with possibly millions of advertisers.

With Google Adsense, you get access to all the Google relationships they’ve made with advertisers—enabling you to place ads from these corporate connections on your blog. In less than no time, you will start to receive a portion of the commissions these advertisers make when people click or interact with the Google ads.

Google Adsense is simple to set up and 100% FREE.

You will want to start with Google Adsense because it’s quick and easy to use. But keep in mind that as your blog audience multiplies, your options to using ads for income will get even better. Aim at three hundred thousand visitors per month to your blog. (Great content will help you get there.) You’ll get excited about your options after that, but for now, Google Adsense is a great starting point.

How Does Google Adsense Pay You?

You have two ways to get paid. Getting a check in the mail is one option. Or, they can directly deposit your earnings straight to your bank account. Direct deposit is always the easiest and quickest way to go. The deposit comes in at the end of every month (From the 21st day and upward).

How You Can Give Yourself a Raise with Google Adsense

Earning a higher income is pretty simple…just get more traffic to your blog. Somewhere between 1-10% of your blog visitors will click an ad. This varies according to the blog topic, but whatever your blog is about, you will see over time how consistent this plays out. Every month for example, consider your earnings if 3% of your blog visitors click an ad.

At 3%, if you have 20,000 visitors in a month, you will generate 600 clicks. Now supposing your blog audience grew to 100,000 visitors per month, you would generate 3,000 clicks. See how this works? If you are diligent in building your blog audience, your income from ads will increase exponentially. The time taken to build up traffic provides huge amounts of satisfaction in the long run.

What Pay Rate Does Google Adsense Offer?

Again, your blog topic will play a major part in the return you receive per click. Google Adsense has paid out rates of $0.05 per click all the way up to $20 per click and beyond. For new bloggers starting out, you are probably going to earn $0.20 to $0.50 per click. Using Google Adsense is pretty much a numbers game…but that’s true with all advertising to some degree. Filling your blog with great content will definitely put the odds more in your favor. I’ve seen this with my blogs. And since creating great content is my specialty, you will definitely want to read the lessons I provide on how to produce great content.

A Simple Guide on How to Apply for Google AdSense

Step 1: First, you will want to click the red button that says ''Get Started Now''.

Step 2: Next, if you do not have a Google account, click the ''Create a New Account''. If you do have a Google account, just click ''Yes'', then proceed to Google Account sign in.

Step 3: Type in the domain name of the website you want to use with Google AdSense in the “I will show ads on” box. Then put in the language of your website. Review the Terms and Conditions and click Continue.

Step 4: Fill in your AdSense application and click the blue button that says ''Submit my application''.

Step 5: You’re finished when you see the “Thank you for applying to AdSense!” You can check out a few tutorials here to teach you more about Google AdSense if you need it.

You have submitted your application and Google will let you know whether your website is approved or not. This approval process didn’t take long. As for me, I received the approval email from Google in a couple of hours.

When you click “Get started now” in the email, you will first see a terms of service to review and accept. Then you will see below a red bar that tells you that your domain is still under review. So what you do here is proceed to your WordPress blog and place the code on your website. Google tells you here that the ads will be blank until your blog is fully approved. So click “Get started now” to continue…

After clicking “Get started now,” I found the navigation to finding my ad codes to be a bit tricky. Now, go to your Adsense dashboard and click on the blue button that says “Create your first ad unit now!”

You will then need to wait for Google to give you the final approval. Until that happens, visitors to your website will not see the ads at all. You will be able to see blank, or empty ads at first. Only after your approval will you and your blog visitors see ads.

Your approval email can take hours or days to show up in your inbox. Mine was approved about 8 hours later.

Google Adsense is a great way to start monetizing your blog. It’s simple, easy to set up, and best of all, it’s FREE.

If you’re reading this and you still haven’t started your free blogspot blog, stop procrastinating, do it now by following my step-by-step guide today.

Here is a Second Way You Can Make Money Blogging on your Blogspot Blog.

Affiliate Marketing

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of affiliate basically because of the first impression I had with them. Though most professional bloggers always suggest you go for an affiliate program, I'm still stuck with AdSense and it's been good to me. 

Anyone can do it affiliate marketing, you just need to pick what service or product to affiliate with and then take the necessary steps.

How Much Money Can You Actually Make?

When asked this question, affiliate marketing expert Alan Roy Hocking gave this great answer on his website:

“The answer to the question; “How much can I earn affiliate marketing” is that there really is no limit to the amount of money you can earn.

In the last ten years, more people have become millionaires through affiliate marketing than in any other industry and every day ordinary people just like you and me are learning how to tap into this incredible unlimited income source.

How hard you are willing to work and the niche you choose will determine how quickly you’ll succeed and how much you will earn but remember this…..

In other words, your income potential depends on you. That is great if you’re motivated and self disciplined and want to learn new things. If you’re not, well, your income will reflect that.
