TWO: Blogging for money
How do you make money?
Cost per click or pay per click ads
A common way to make money is by placing ads on the blog site.
The two popular types of ads are:
CPC or PPC Ads (cost per click or pay per click) these are ads placed as banners or towers on to your blogpost. Each time someone clicks the ad you will get paid a percentage of the cost of the ad. The amount varies depending on how much the advertiser paid to advertise through the search network. Here is an article worth reading if you want to go in this direction “What is Google AdSense and How to Make Money With It”.
Bing/Yahoo also has a similar option with a totally different demographic. Their audience, although smaller is a lot more sophisticated and probably less expensive as well.
CPM Ads (cost per 1000 impressions) these ads pay a fixed amount depending on how many view your ad.
The most popular is Google AdSense. It might seem a little overwhelming in the beginning but keep at it you will become an expert in no time. With this type of advertising all you do is place a banner on your site with some code. And generate traffic which will in turn generate money. The rule here is to be active in your marketing and consistent in your posting articles and patient in getting income. Every little bit you get will add up. And if you’re consistent it will grow exponentially.
