What is Content Monetization
Content monetization is the process of making money from your blog content. It’s an important part of running a successful blog, and it can be done in many different ways. There are several methods that bloggers use to make money from their blogs, such as affiliate marketing, display advertising, email marketing and more. This guide will walk you through all the steps needed to get started with content monetization so that you can start earning revenue from your blog today!
Now, I will tell you the ways in which I monetize my sites to make money online. I will also share with you other options of monetizing your blog for online income. Because, there are many different varieties of options for you to choose from. What might work for me might not work for you and vice versa. This way you can experiment and mix and match to see what works for you.
There are loads of information you can find already on the internet about these ad networks as revenue sources. I can add my own personal insight, nothing else. With the others, you can do a google or YouTube search with keywords “xxx network review”. You will get tons of results that you can read through. But if you are like me then you will be excited to read these because this is how you can truly make money online.
Basically the main options for you to make money from your blog site are:
- displaying ads (i.e. networks like Adsense, or selling direct to advertisers),
- affiliate marketing (selling other people’s products and services including CPA offers),
- selling your own products and services (digital products, physical products, freelance services, coaching, etc.)
The easy and profitability to which you can monetize and profit are usually also in this order.
* First it is easiest with display ads because you simply put a code or link on your site which earn you a modest income if setup right but not greatest income compared to the other two.
* Next is affiliate marketing where you gain higher income that display ads if done right because the prices of the products and services tend to be higher than displaying ads so you get higher affiliate commissions and it is not that difficult to set up since you are simply recommending other people’s product without creating it your own and doing customer support.
* Finally is selling your own products and services, where you can control how much you price the product which typically has the highest profit margin but high difficulty to set up.
Ad revenue for easy and stable income online
There is a biggest favorite monetization method of mine that I will preach over and over is monetization through display ads. This is what I primarily use with great success. It is the easiest to set up and you get way more stability in the income you bring in. Also, you really only have to worry about content and traffic once your site is set up. It is also the most stable income online I have ever seen. Most of the time with affiliate marketing or selling your own products, you do not know if you will get sales from this visitor or that visitor because a sale is a big commitment from any visitor. But with ads, you can know your RPM which is revenue per thousand page views and this number tends to be stable the more traffic you have. Seeing or clicking on an ad is not a big commitment from visitors so they are more likely to do it which make you money.
Also, Stability is a big thing, especially considering the uncertain nature of business. With display ads, you simply let visitors see ads and you make money. The more visitors you bring to your site, the higher chances you have of making money. And the best thing is that visitors do not even have to buy anything or make any scary commitment for you to make money. Visitors just have to see the ad or click on the ad for you to make money.
Income from displaying ads is so stable that it looks like full time income. You can see the money in your account rising at a steady and sure pace in tandem with the amount of traffic you bring in to your site.
You may hear a lot of people saying display ads do not work or that Adsense does not work. That is because they are not doing it right. If you do display ads properly on your blog, you will make a profit and a decent one and stable one at that.
On top of AdSense which is a great ad network and revenue source. There are alternatives to AdSense that you can use and some of them have easy requirements to get into while you are waiting to get approved by AdSense of some more premium ad networks. Media.net and PropellerAds are two networks are good networks although they do not pay as well as AdSense does.
These more easy to get into ad networks include but are not limited to:
- and much more.
And here are the more premium but harder to get into ad networks:
- and more
Many of these revenue sources are easy to integrate into your WordPress site. Media.net for example has an official WordPress plugin where you can install it and you can setup ad placements using that plugin for easy setup of the Media.net revenue source then you can start earning. PropellerAds also has this similar official WordPress plugin. On top of that, there are also plugins you can easily find, install, and activate then setup to start earning after you place the ads on your site.
Post Quality and unique Content –
We know, Content is King.
As an online publisher, you need to learn and understand the importance of market research, keyword research, making up topics to discuss about and answering people’s questions then giving people the right tools and resources. This is what visitors come to you for and this is what makes them stay and engage with your content and your site. The more that people are engaged with your site, the more money you will most likely make as a result.
The more quality content you have on your blog, the more people will trust you and want to click on the ads on your site that you show them sort of like recommendations. Normally, ads that come from people we do not know are annoying. But ads that come from a trusted friend do not even seem like ads at all. They seem like friendly recommendations because we trust that person.
It is the same when your visitor is consuming content from you. They are building trust with you as their authority and friend. So that AdSense ad that would normally be annoying to someone would then be not so annoying anymore if they have read your quality content and trust that you know what you are talking about and have their best interest in mind. And the more that they see and click those ads, the more money you make.
But it’s only possible for having unique and quality content.
What is the difference between low quality content and high quality content?
It’s a sad fact that low-quality content gets attention because it ranked for the search term or was paid to be there. But these pieces of written work don’t answer people’s problems and point them towards solutions; instead, they just confuse readers with jargon so complicated even experts can’t understand it!
It doesn’t matter how many times you read something from start until end if what is written does not embody human intelligence on an individual level–that would make everything else worth reading worthwhile too right?
So what makes a post good to read? It’s not just about having perfect grammar and spelling; there are other factors as well. When you’re looking at any social media site, the key thing that will make or break your experience is how interesting each individual article feels – which means it should provide useful information!
A great way for posts like this one can be much more engaging than simply listing out statistics without explanation: instead of writing “6 mistakes businesses make when they use Facebook Ads,” think about telling us why these errors happen (maybe users don’t see their ad enough because they’re targeting too narrow an audience). That might sound strange at first but actually helps bridge the gap between readership
Time and effort invested by the writer
High quality posts on the other hand are ones where you can tell a great deal of time and effort were invested in researching the problem and even more time and effort were invested in looking for the right solution to that problem. The reader comes out reading it with satisfaction that they came out with something new and something to try out and test to see if it will solve their problem. Not only that, but they are easy to read because they were written by a human that know how to connect at a human level and break down complex stuff into easy to digest step by step instructions. They know their stuff so well that they can explain it to an eight year old child.
Tangible, tested, researched, and actionable
The difference between high-quality posts and low quality ones are clear when you look at the research that was put into them. High-quality posts were written by someone who knows how to connect humanly with their readers, breaking down complex information in an easy step by step process so it can be understood even if there is no previous knowledge about what they’re writing on!
Take traffic for example.
Traffic is the lifeblood of any company. But it’s hard to generate, and if you’re new at internet marketing like many beginners are then your search can end up being obstructed by low-quality posts telling us how to ” organically increase” our traffic with vague solutions that don’t solve anything for an individual’s needs in this space (especially since there isn’t much overlap between various types/brands).
Understand your audience and the results they want
It is important to understand your audience, but it can be even more rewarding when you become an author that their favorite reader. Researching the pain points of those around us will help shape our stories with empathy and provide solutions they seek out. One great way I’ve seen this done in my own writing practice was by researching keywords on Amazon which indicated what sorts of books were being sold – then reading through reviews from people who bought them so as not only get feedback about how good or bad something might have been at executing its premise (which would usually tell me if there’s anything worth addressing), but also see where we needlessly repeat information because readers had already gotten tired delivering updates
Help people solve their problems –
Writing quality content is the key to success in this industry. It’s not about how many articles you can churn out, but rather what kind of high-quality information do they contain? Highlighting plagiarism and low production values will only get your site blacklisted from search engines like Google or Bing so make sure that doesn’t happen!
If we want to provide solutions for our readers, then research should be a top priority. If you are providing good content but have bad grammar or spelling at times it won’t matter because most people can still see the value in what your trying say even if they don’t know how exactly fix their problem right away and instead need some time on figuring things out themselves before being able too make changes happen with just one click! That’s why using an engaging conversational tone makes sense since its easy enough that anyone could read through without getting bored quickly which will ultimately lead them towards success as well.
Thanks for reading.
