If you’ve been keen on starting your own blog then you need to learn something from Enrique Burgos. There’s a lot that goes into the making of a blog, but once you get it right you can begin to display ads on your site and earn from it. Once you start displaying CPC or CPM ads on your blog, companies will start monitoring the traffic you attract. Once the traffic is considerable, the advertising companies will approach you directly and request you to place ads on your blog. Alternatively, you can contact advertisers directly if you feel that you are garnering a lot of traffic. The advantage of this method is that the intermediary or the mediator is eliminated and you can decide you own rates for the ads.
Once you start getting private ads, these can be placed in the form of links, buttons, or banners. Sponsored posts are also another way of making money. You may write a review of a particular product or service and earn from it. Writing an underwritten post is also a way of making money. Here the advertiser would pay to put up ‘brought to you by’ in the content.
Cut Out The Extras
Avoid playing background music and displaying loud background on your blog. Readers hate this. While there are a few readers who would enjoy this, many readers will never come back to read your blogs. Another problem with the auto-loading music is consumption of your bandwidth. This may cause your blog to load slowly. This is where you will lose many readers. All this because they could not wait for the blog to load. This can also be annoying to someone accessing your blog inside a library and your background score suddenly starts blaring. Trust me; this reader is never coming back.
