When making the most money possible on a blog, you need to satisfy your readers with quality information that they will come back for. Content is king and it will strive your blog to success the more frequent you post these amazing blog entries. On the other hand, if you don’t have any advertisements, how are you going to make an extra income on your blog? Exactly, you aren’t!
Advertisements vary in ways of pay. For example, you have Pay-Per-Click ads and Pay-Per-Affiliate (Pay-Per-Sale) ads as the most common. PPC ads like Google Adsense, pay you for every click you generate from your blog to the ad’s link no matter if they purchase something or not. PPS ads pay you not by the amount of clicks, but by the amount of sales you receive from the ad. It is very easy to tell the difference as PPC stands for Pay-Per-Click ads and PPS stands for Pay-Per-Sale ads. It is very important to vary in these types of ads around your blog. Have a total of 6 advertisements maximum on your blog with maybe 4 PPS and 2 PPC ads.
The most important way of making money on your blog is by ad placement. It can make a dramatic difference of where you put your ads on your blog. You obviously don’t want to put the ads in the footer of your blog or to far down the sides. You want to have these ads towards the beginning of your page, meaning in the header or within your latest post area. This area is where you first visit a page and without scrolling you can see at least half of your ads. Occasionally, ads gather attention from your readers to stay on because of the graphics and colors and then before they leave they are most likely to click the ad.
Blogging is one of the easiest ways to make money online if you do it right and you are consistent in writing your posts. The more you post quality content the more readers you gain which also means the more income your receive. Some popular ways bloggers make money are by advertisements, featured posts, and by affiliate marketing. Let’s get into depth of these three popular ways to make money on your blog.
First, the majority of the bloggers have advertisements around the page of their blog. For example, on the right of this page you will see some advertisements which give me different types of income. The Hostgator and Revisitors.com ads don’t make me money when my readers click on them, but they make me higher commissions when my readers sign-up or buy something on that site from my ad. The ads have a link with my username which allows me to receive the commissions I earn. On the other hand, the advertisements below those are Google Adsense ads. These ads make me money when one of my readers click on it no matter if they buy the product or service from my ad. It is always good to have a variety of these advertisements on your blog because you won’t be having to rely on a specific ad.
Next, popular bloggers that average in over 30,000 visits a day to their blog may do featured posts. These are when someone pays the blogger to write a good review or shoutout to a smaller blog, service, or product. These popular bloggers also do this on social networking sites like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Normally, these featured posts cost $300 and higher depending on the amount of traffic the blogger gets to their blog.
Lastly, bloggers can make money using affiliate marketing. On my blog, I have talked a lot about this. To sum up, affiliate marketing is basically selling other people’s stuff. I have made most of my income on this although it takes time to gather quality, daily traffic to a blog. When making the most money in affiliate marketing you want to feature products and services that relate to your niche, or primary topic of a blog.
All together, I have went over the top three most poplar ways to make money as a blogger. I hope these have suited you and you will start using at least a couple of these on your blog!
So many of you have heard of the term and work of computer programming. If you were or are doing this in high school people would call you a geek, but trust me, computer programming is freaking awesome! The average annual salary for a computer programmer makes about $75,000, working about 40 hours a week. I would say that is a pretty hefty income for creating some applications, but remember this is just the average annual income. Some programmers can make up $750,000 or even more a year depending on their experience, importance, and their clients.
Although, programming can be fun at times it can also be very frustrating and stressful. Short deadlines to create big programs causes most of this. Being stuck in front of a computer screen typing code is appealing to most of them but the others find it rather boring and tired of typing this code. I personally like coding because at the end of the day I feel accomplished of whatever I created. The reward is also great! I have recently started to learn how to write PHP, a language of code used for computer programming. My dad said that I would start out at $10 a hour but would increase by the amount of work I do in an hour.
All together, computer programming is a great career to be interested in. With making an average annual salary of about $75,000 it can be fun but also frustrating and stressful at times. Remember, the more experienced you are, the more money you can make as a programmer.
