Finding The Right Revenue Mix For Your Blog

There is truly an abundance of ways in which you can monetize your blog these days. A few years back you would probably have been stuck with Google Adsense, whether it fit your needs or not. But now you can use a variety of monetization programs, and some of them even in conjunction with each other, in order to maximize the amount your earn. These are good times to be a blogger, because getting paid and increasing revenues are easier than ever.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the ways I’m monetizing my own blogs:

1) Google Adsense
2) Text Link Ads
3) Direct Ad Sales
4) Kontera Contextual Ads
5) Amazon
6) WidgetBucks
7) ZangoCash

It would be safe to say that I’m doing my best to leave no stone unturned when it comes to making more money for my efforts. The great thing about these programs is that you can run more than one per website, so earning extra dollars becomes a no-brainer. Just add more code and make more money.

Also, driving more traffic to your blog is always a way to up your income, so between adding different monetization schemes and getting more people to your blog, you can expect to increase your earnings almost continously. I’m happy to report that I’ve been able to double my revenue in 4 months. If I can do it, anyone can.

The key to finding the right revenue mix is to experiment. Just keep track of any changes you make and tweak, tweak, tweak. There’s always some extra pennies laying around the internet. The people who make the most money blogging are the ones who Hoover up those pennies every time.

What monetization programs are you having success with?
