  1. 1. Follow These 3 Steps to Monetize Your Blog By Jolynn Oblak http://www.jolynnoblak.com/monetize-your- blog/ Are you looking for ways to make money with your blog? When I first started my blog I needed a simple checklist to follow. I thought I would share my easy 3 step checklist to help you get started in developing your blog monetization plan. Follow these 3 steps to monetize your blog and keep working on building your website traffic as well. STEP 1: Check Your Competitors Before Your Monetize Your Blog ☐ Search Google and top blog sites for competitors in your niche. Research and take notes ☐ How do they make money? Check for the following: ☐ Email newsletter subscriptions, ☐ eBooks sold directly from the site, ☐ Product promotions in blog posts, ☐ Ads around the blog, ☐ Pages listing advertising prices, ☐ Any services sold from that website (e.g. web design, writing, coaching).
  2. 2. ☐ Note all the potential options for your blog – even if you don’t think they’re likely. STEP 2: Analyze Your Blog Before you Monetize Even if you’re not ready to start monetizing your blog right away, it’s always a good idea to know your stats. This is especially important if you hope to sell ad space in the future. ☐ How much traffic do you get per month?  If you don’t know, start tracking with Google Analytics  Don’t have any traffic yet? Start building it up before monetizing. ☐ How many email subscribers do you have?  Don’t have any? Set up a mailing list with a service Aweber or Mailchimp  When it comes to making your fortune on the internet, you’ll hear time and time again that building your list should be one of your main priorities. It basically means you’ll have a collection of names and email addresses of people who are guaranteed to be interested in what you have to offer.  The main problem with building a list is encouraging people to sign up. A few years ago it may have been easy to get people to hand over their email address in the promise of getting regular updates, but not so anymore. Nowadays you have to offer them something of value to them. You can purchase high quality Private Label Rights articles and repurpose them as email messages, offering value and tips to your readers or as a free Opt-In report that will then entice them to sign up to your list. For marketing PLR, I recommend the Special Report Clubfor online marketing PLR and Coach Glue for PLR for a coaching business. Although Coach Glue is

You can also review my checklist for additional ideas for making your blog post go viral here.  Sending your posts out via social media and email lists will also help. You should also setup a solid promotion and marketing plan to follow for each post on your blog. You can steal mine and use it by reading my post here on blog promotions. STEP 3: Choose a Blog Monetization Method Now it’s time to choose a way to start monetizing your blog. It’s important not to try everything at once. Start with something that suits your blog, and that has worked with competitors in a similar situation to you. ☐ Pay Per Click Ads  Good choice if your blog is new and advertisers aren’t yet interested.
  4. 4.  Very easy to set up. ☐ Direct Advertisements  Can be more lucrative than Pay Per Click ads.  Advertisers will want to see traffic and engagement. ☐ Affiliate Programs  There are usually products suited to any niche. For example, I am an affiliate for blog training courses like Learn to Blog and the Ultimate Branding Blueprint. Think about what your blog is about and use Google to search for affiliate programs.  If you really love a product, this will help you make sales. ☐ Your own eBook  If people like your blog, then consider doing a more in-depth eBook on the same subject.  Or, put it together in course format and create a membership site. ☐ Multimedia Advertisements  If you’re a video blogger, you can earn money through YouTube ads or sponsored videos.  If you like to podcast, you can find a sponsor for each episode. ☐ Services  If you provide a service, like web design, it makes sense=start promoting this.  You can also move on to consulting and coaching in future.  You can also sell pre-made articles, graphics etc.
  5. 5. Remember, many successful blogs use a combination of the above monetization methods. Keep trying new things as your blog and income grows. Good luck
