Welcome to WEALTHINFOTIPS, how the heck are you doing today?
In today’s post we are going to look at some of the alternative ways one can make money from his or her blog aside adsense
One of the first thing on the to do list of most Nigerian bloggers when it comes to earning an income with their blog is AdSense.
Simply because AdSense is one Of the best online advertising networks for every blog and it is been owned by google of all people and also its one of the most secure network for monetization of blogs currently.
Thanks to ads quality and the constant income it generates. However, Adsense is not for newcomers, that is the hard truth.
In short, before you can get a tangible income with Adsense, your traffic should be tens of thousands, nothing less.
New bloggers find it very frustrating, even discouraging. Fortunately, there are other ways in which bloggers can make substantial income from their blog to generate income without adsense in their blog.
And with that in mind, here are some the best ways that Nigerian bloggers can make money from their blog without Adsense.
However, if you have never blogged before, you may need an evaluation of the following proven strategies to get started.
So, without further ado, let’s get started…
The question is how do you make money from blogging? considering how hard and frustrating it can be waiting on google AdSense, Which is the main focus of most bloggers, which at the end the get hurt and disappointed at the result they get. Am sorry to say this AdSense is not for new comers and this is actually a wrong mindset form most wanna be bloggers.
The reason why most people fail is when starting as a blogger the first thing they are made to understand is that its going to be easy making money with Google Adsense. So they start out with a lot of expectation, hoping that Adsense will be the quickest way to make money blogging.
They will do everything possible to make the money come fast, including duplicating their content and sending them to multiple sites, participating in Adsense revenue sharing sites and the rest of the methods that needs to be applied but after several months of blogging, only some cents will be trickling into there account.
It will become so frustrating eventually, their hopes of making money with Google Adsense is becoming unreal. They might decide to exercise a little patience, checking their Adsense account daily to see their balance or if anything had improved. Nothing happened, the situation is simply the same.
It’s either I have been lied to or I expected too much from Google Adsense. This will be their next question.
Then the days will turn into weeks, months and eventually turns into years and they will be still expecting their first check lol.
Their expectations will begin to turn to frustration, from frustration into anger. They will begin to be suspicious of Adsense with this question running through their mind could it be they were intentionally adding cents to my account?
Google Adsense is certainly not the quickest way to make money blogging the money is in other areas so neglected by bloggers.
When you decide to use your blog to earn money, you are no longer just a blogger. At that time you become an entrepreneur and your blog becomes a small business.
Here is how you can use your blog to make money
1. Set up your blog
2. Write content that is relevant which can draw a lot of traffic.
3. Convert visitors to subscribe to your emails.
4. Send content to those subscribers to create trust and relationship
5. Sell products or services that your audience wants.
It is relatively easier to start a blog and constantly publish relevant content to keep the public, but it is more difficult to make money with from a blog.
However, this does not alter the fact that blogging is one of the most profitable ways to start earning a passive income.
Although you can work as you please, the output or result of a blog depends solely on your continued efforts to publish great content, increase your audience and try different strategies to earn money.
Lets take a look at some of the best ways that Nigerian bloggers can make money without Adsense.
1. Start with affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular methods that bloggers use to earn money online. This is the fastest and perhaps the easiest way to make money, because all you need is a connection with customers who have content that needs to be sold online.
As I write this, it happens that I am in the initial phase of starting a new blog, It’s in a completely different phase where I do not have products, so I thought about the best way to make money, and this is what I think …
Affiliate marketing is among the smartest strategy.
If you are not familiar with the term, it is a business model that approves the products or services of other people in exchange for a commission. In software and information products, affiliates usually earn a commission of 50% or more, so it can be quite profitable.
Affiliate marketing income is almost completely passive. You do not have to worry about creating products for it, assisting customers or the technical analysis of selling your products or services. You can as well invest the time saved to increasing your traffic, which in turn generates more revenue for your blog.
Personally, I think the benefits are so great that when it comes to blogging in other to make cash, nobody has to consider another business model when one successfully have an affiliate system that has been set on autopilot.
This is a simple and direct way to earn money form your blog. You can find many Nigerian blogs that already do same, talk of Linda Ikeji.
Bella Naija blog been at the forefront.
All you will have to do is to create a sell space on your website so advertisers can display there banner. The offers are developed in such a way that an advertiser can set an advertisement for a fixed period at a rate agreed with the blog administrator.
This can be a very lucrative method because it allows you to remove the middleman and you can charge what you want so that other people can advertise on your site.
2. Sell your content / product
There are lot of people who have made a lot of money creating and marketing their own content. Although it takes time and effort to create such content, it will undoubtedly bring you more money than other strategies. The type of content you can create includes e-books and things like online training programs.
Nigeria is a great company full of enthusiastic consumers! Instead of just blogging, why not sell the product, service or skills directly on your website? Maybe you are a beautician and have discovered a product that can help people control skin problems so you can sell these products on your blog at a small expense.
Maybe you are a writer and you have short fiction stories. you are the boss of that and have total control without limitations.
Everything is like that, the more efforts you make to earn more the money keeps rolling in.
Over time your blog can gain popularity and become one Full time company and business for you. A journey of thousand miles begins with one step.
You probably want to offer your services from the first day on your blog. The profit you will get will almost certainly outweigh any other thing, at least at the beginning.
Even if you are making fantastic profits with affiliate marketing or sales services, you may want to develop a product yourself at any given time.
3. Create a mailing list
Your email list is more important than anything else. This is a very important factor for any serious blogger.
Creating an email list gives you quick money and also for your blog. However, you must have something important to offer your target audience when you compile their email addresses.
For example, if you sell products and services, making an offer that will attract your audience to subscribe to your list. By sending more and more products, services and links by email, you will certainly earn more.
With my past experience, your email list is the most accurate tool to determine how much money you make.
The more subscribers you receive, the more money you will earn. Of course, your relationship with your subscribers and the quality of your products or services and dozens of other factors are still ongoing, but to increase sales, focus on increasing mailing lists.
Making money with your blogs, this is absolutely necessary.
The mail list is the golden egg.
When you stick with blogging and create a list of emails containing 1,000, 10,000, 100,000 or more subscribers,
Suppose you put together your e-book and found this fantastic idea, or if you have a recommendation for an excellent $100 product that gives you $30 in affiliate commissions.
Makeup a newsletter and send it to your list and… wallah!
Get a calculator and check out the profit. Money begins to roll.
You will be giving value to your subscribers by telling them something that:
• solves a problem
• give them pleasure
In return, you earn money to help them. It’s win-win isn’t that cool!
4. Request donations
Although it is not worth making a lot of money with this strategy, it is worth trying, especially if readers take advantage of its content, products and services. When developing a blog, then, it focuses on enriching people’s lives by providing relevant knowledge, products or services.
This will earn your trust, making it reasonable when you ask them to support your work with donations. All you need is a bold and attractive donation button on your blog and it will surely contribute.
5. PAID ADVERTS
AdSense is not the only way you can place advert on your blog, you can as well make money from your blog through paid adverts or simply accepting adverts to be place on a particular area on your blog. All you need to do is to promote your blog strategically so that it gets to the right people. You can then use this as a means and leverage to convince people, organizations and business owners to advertise on your blog.
If you actually want to make money on your blog, you must have this in mind that Google Adsense is not the quickest means to make money blogging, you have to think out how to use other sources which I have listed some of them above and know which one works well for you.
