Fast and easy ways to monetize your blog in 2019

It always surprises me how many blogs are not properly monetized. I have seen people who get thousands of visitors every month relying on Amazon affiliate links to create income for them. Now, I am not saying there is anything wrong with using this form of monetization. There is no reason why you should not take that approach.

Fast And Easy Ways To Monetize Your Blog

But, if that is the only way you are monetizing your blog, you are potentially leaving an awful lot of money on the table. As you will see, there are plenty of other, relatively easy, ways to make money from your blog. Below, I am sharing other methods that still work, in 2019.

Incorporate display ads into your website

Once you have got your site up and running and are keeping up to date. You can start to add some display ads to it. Potentially, it could be any kind of advert. For example, a banner ad for this security sign website. If your site is a local one that space can be given over to an advert you post for a shop owner from your area.

There are lots of possibilities. You could opt to get paid for simply having the ad on your site or embed an affiliate link in it. If you take the latter option you will get paid if someone clicks on the ad and buys something. The third option is to post an ad that allows you to be paid when someone simply clicks on the ad. This is known as CPA marketing. The CPA part stands for Cost Per Action. 

Accept sponsored posts

All kinds of brands are prepared to pay you to try out their products or services and write about your experience. You can earn a surprisingly amount of money by doing this. However, most brands will only work with established sites that have quite a lot of followers. But, once you reach that point, you can make a lot of money by doing this.

Sell your services and products

If you offer a product or service, don’t forget to share that fact on your website. You will be surprised by how many people don’t do this. Using plug-ins it is really easy to add an online shop to your site. If you are a service provider simply adding a page to your site that tells potential customers more about what you offer can bring in a surprising amount of money.

Sell your website

One of the easiest ways to make a lot of money from a website is to sell it. These days, it is not hard to find buyers who are willing to pay up to 30 times what your website earns in a typical month, sometimes more. So, if your site has consistently been making $1000 per month for more than 6 months you could sell it for $30,000 or more. Unfortunately, a significant percentage of that will have to go on escrow and maybe agent fees. But, you will still end up with a lot of cash in your bank account.
