Blogging is fast becoming an outlet for people to make real money online, so how can you make money from a blog? Here are 3 fast ways to make money from your blog.
1. Actively build a subscriber list.
If you are not collecting the emails from your blog visitors then you are losing the potential of future promotions and sales. To capture an email address of a visitor to your blog, you will need to add an opt-in form from an auto responder service such as Aweber.
In order to capture a visitor's email address the blog author will have to give something of value away for free. This can be in the form of an emailed newsletter, an ecourse, a free mp3 interview or a free eBook report.
Once the visitor subscribes you then have their permission to send them further future offers of products or information they may be interested in. If the visitor does not wish to receive any further emails from you, they can simply unsubscribe from your mailing list.
2. Banner advertising
Banner advertising can often be frowned up but can be a highly effective way of making money from your blog. Too many banners will just confuse visitors, so a few choice banners carefully placed can ensure no disruption to your blog layout or distraction from you main comment.
Banners placed in blog side bars seem to be less intrusive and more effective as the blog reader's eyes are naturally drawn to the banner images as they read your post. Most product creators or affiliate programs provide promotional banners in various shapes and sizes, so bloggers can always find one to suit their needs and their blog template.
3. Product Reviews
