This system allows you to advertise products and sell them through your blog. You must choose affiliate programs that contextually match the content of your blog. Next, you need to include your affiliate links in your blog content to encourage your readers to view the offers you are promoting. For example, if your blog content is for cats, you can include affiliate links for ClickBank information products or Amazon articles that cater for cats.
By the way, what are ClickBank and Amazon ? ClickBank and Amazon are the first two retailers of digital products on almost every topic in the world.
One of the best practices to integrate is to try to give a simple and honest evaluation of the product you want to put forward. You can also post this assessment on other blogs that talk about the same topic. This will result in additional traffic and therefore more chances to sell.
When you want to generate revenue from your blog, it will always be beneficial to place Google AdSense ads strategically.
Google AdSense is a program that includes ads contextually relevant to your content and will pay you if your blog users click on those ads. Users do not need to buy anything. Just click. This will take you a few cents to a few euros per click and you can make hundreds of dollars per month through Google AdSense.
Sell your advertising space directly
Your advertising space is worth a lot of money! When your blog starts having a lot of visitors every day, you can negotiate directly with advertisers who want to sell their products in relation to your articles. Contact affiliates of different programs, contact brands and companies related to your blog and suggest they advertise on your blog. The advantage is that you determine the price!
To make you understand what we are talking about, nothing like a small example:
You have 3 ad slots available on each page of your blog. Your blog has 300 pages and you decide to sell each space for 1 euro per month.
The calculation is simple: 300 x 3 x 1 euro = 900 euros per month for a blog. Do the math yourself if you sell for 5 euros a month, if you have 1000 pages or if you have 5 blogs!
You may understand better now why one can talk about being paid to write.

Spend some time adding content to your blog, writing articles, visiting other blogs, visiting forums, and if you’re an affiliate, review the products you want to promote.
Define a goal and when that goal is reached, set another goal and so on. Do not set unrealistic goals as this will only do one thing; to make you give up. Do not be discouraged ! It takes time and patience to make money with a blog but the game is well worth it!
