The Easiest Ways To Get Income From Your Blog.

Hello everybody, I am a man who is earning money for a living in affiliate programs. When I have free time, I like to write articles to share my thoughts.
Today, I want to share with you my opinion about using blogs in affiliate programs.
Affiliate programs are also called affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which companies pay money for a person who brought a new customer (on his own marketing efforts).
Nowadays, many people have blogs on all kinds of websites. Have you ever thought how to use your blog to make money?
Do you actually want to monetize your blog?
Some people have strong personal feelings with respect to making money from their blogs. If you think that commercializing your blog is evil, immoral, unethical, uncool, lame, greedy, obnoxious, or anything along those lines then don’t commercialize it.
If you have mixed feelings about monetizing your blog, then sort out those feelings first. If you think that monetizing your site is wonderful, that’s fine. If you think it’s evil, also fine. But make up your mind before you seriously consider starting down this path. If you want to succeed, you must be congruent. Generating income from your blog is challenging enough – you don’t want to be dealing with self-sabotage at the same time. It should feel genuinely good to earn income from your blog – you should be driven by a healthy ambition to succeed. If your blog provides genuine value, you fully deserve to earn income from it. If, however, you find yourself full of doubts over whether this is the right path for you, you might find this article helpful: How Selfish Are You? It’s about balancing your needs with the needs of others.
Can most people do it?
I write this article not to inform you that most people can make money through blogs. No, they can’t. I happen to agree with those who say that 99% of people who try to generate serious income from their blogs will fail. So while most people can’t make a living this way, I would say that most smart people can. How do you know whether or not you qualify as smart? Here’s a good rule of thumb: If you have to ask the question, you aren’t.
This kind of 99-1 ratio isn’t unique to blogging though. You’ll see it in any field with relatively low entry barriers. What percentage of wannabe actors, musicians, or athletes ever make enough money from their passions to support themselves? It doesn’t take much effort to start a blog these days – almost anyone can do it. Talent counts for something, and the talent that matters in blogging is intelligence. But that just gets you in the door. You need to specifically apply your intelligence to one particular talent. And the best words I can think of to describe that particular talent are: web savvy.
If you are very web savvy, or if you can learn to become very web savvy, then you have an excellent shot of making enough money from your blog to cover all your living expenses… and more. But if becoming truly web savvy is more than your gray matter can handle, then I’ll offer this advice: Don’t quit your day job.
The main ways to make money from your blog
What do I mean by web savvy? You don’t need to be a programmer, but you need a decent functional understanding of a variety of web technologies. What technologies are “key” will depend on the nature of your blog and your means of monetization. But generally speaking I’d list these elements as significant:
If you have already handled with these elements, of course it is easy for you to make money (in technology aspect). A lack of understanding is a major cause of failure in the realm of online income generation.
Most of you may have guessed that I will now tell about all kinds of ways of making money from blogs. I will briefly describe the ways of making money through your blog.
Most blog owners have already known how to publish Ads or other forms of advertisement to make money. Now I want to draw your attention to some special way of making money using your blog. This way is very easy for none web savvy blog owners.
You can become an Internet Partner of some companies.
You can use your blog to publish information about this company and gain money from your referrals.
Let’s take a Profiforex forex broker for example.
This company (profiforex.com) is a forex broker, If you don’t know how to trade and you can’t (or don’t want to) earn money on exchange-rate fluctuations, it is OK because you are the owner of your blog. They offer you rather profitable partnership program. It’s very easy to use, too. Simply you need to place a special referral link (or banner) on any page of blog or website. When someone gets to the website of this company from that link (in a month, a year or whenever), opens an account and starts trading, you’ll receive the cost of one pip (it’s approximately $10) from each of his deals. You will receive commissions during the entire time the trader works with this company. And it doesn’t matter, whether his deals are profitable or not.
For every blog owner, Thriving on change
Your greatest risk isn’t that you’ll make mistakes that will cost you money. Your greatest risk is that you’ll miss opportunities. You need an entrepreneurial mindset, not an employee mindset. Don’t be too concerned with the risk of loss – be more concerned with the risk of missed gains. It’s what you don’t know and what you don’t do that will hurt you the worst. Blogging is cheap. Your expenses and financial risk should be minimal. Your real concern should be missing opportunities that would have made you money very easily. You need to develop antennae that can listen out for new opportunities.
Traffic, traffic, traffic
Assuming you feel qualified to take on the challenge of generating income from blogging (and I haven’t scared you away yet), the three most important things you need to monetize your blog are traffic, traffic, and traffic.
Why is traffic so important? Because for most methods of online income generation, your income is a function of traffic. If you double your traffic, you’ll probably double your income (assuming your visitor demographics remain fairly consistent). You can screw almost everything else up, but if you can generate serious traffic, it’s really hard to fail. With sufficient traffic the realistic worst case is that you’ll eventually be able to monetize your website via trial and error (as long as you keep those visitors coming).
Traffic is the primary fuel of online income generation. More visitors means more ad clicks, more product sales, more affiliate sales, more donations, more consulting leads, and more of whatever else that generates income for you. And it also means you’re helping more and more people.
Now when you have read this article as an owner of a blog have you gotten your plan about making money? Just have a try and remember don’t give up!
