Putting ads on a blog has become the most popular way of earning cash online. There are a lot of different ad networks out there that you can join. People like working with Google Adsense because it is one of the most convenient networks. You probably are already utilizing AdWords as a way to bring more traffic to your website. If Adsense just is not your cup of tea, then you can join other networks instead. Just get the network code and put it on your blog. Because people click on the ads that you have placed on your blog, you will get money for this.
Create a special section on your blog for members who are paying. You can charge a subscription fee every month so people can gain access to whatever you are providing. You need to make sure that you update the paid section often enough to make it worth the fee you are charging but it doesn't have to be done all the time. It is critical that what you are providing in the private section is not something that is available for free elsewhere.
The paid section is the ideal place to tell people what you think, even if it's more controversial, and to showcase the products you are interested in concentrating on, among other things. A paid newsletter is similar.
Why not develop a paid career board? Because you are an IM'er, you are probably aware of plenty of people who have odd jobs that they do not want to do. Build a board and let them list these jobs? You can request that people pay for board space. You get paid. They hire workers. This might get more readers for your blog. This will do wonders for the other forms of monetization that is on your blog. No one loses. Your blog offers plenty of solutions for you to make money. There many opportunities available to you instead of just throwing up some Google Ads. You can advertise other projects you are working on while still making a little extra money, which is the greatest thing about blog monetization. This is a situation in which everyone wins.
