Applying Ads on Your personal Blog
This is one of the best ways to make passive income from blogging. They are great way to get started.
if you apply your ads the right way on your blog, you are ready to make six figure income monthly. When putting ads on your blog always remember this below.
Don’t bombastic your blog with ads because if you do, it will be annoying to your readers and it has the chance to increase your site bounce rate which is bad for SEO.
We have so many ads network you can apply and start making money from it e.g Adsense, propeller ads, info links, and media.net and so on. Looking for ads to start with, I highly recommend Adsense because it is the only ad platform that you can earn money richly.
Adsense is a popular platform use by so many personal blogs and companies’ blog. You get paid whenever someone click the ad and also get paid when the same person who clicked the ad create engagement after clicking it.
To make money from this platform is by putting the ads in the right place and generate traffic to your blog. Without traffic you can’t make money from Adsense. The only challenge to use this platform is you getting approved by Adsense team but don’t worry here is a guide on how to approve your Adsense account.
Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an Adsense Account
First, go to the Signup page for AdSense.
You will see an option to create a new Google account, or you can choose to use your existing Google account if only you have a gmail account.
Secondly, simply enter your website address and select the content language. For the website URL use your blog address, and make sure to add it without “http://”.
Thirdly fill and submit your Adsense information
Finally, click “Submit my application.” The Adsense team will review your application, and if all goes well, you will start placing ads on your blog.
What I meant by getting leads, am talking about email marketing. Email marketing is the best way to get visitors or readers back to your blog. With the use of email marketing, you capture visitor’s mail so that you can contact and send them your latest update or product. Implementing email marketing, you will have the chance to increase your traffic and make sales.
A blog that does not implement email marketing is ready to fail. I did this mistake when I started blogging I did not invest my time using email marketing because I thought it was not necessary but now I realize it is compulsory. With the use of email marketing you can achieve these
- To get back visitors to your blog
- To market your products.
Summary of how to capture visitors and readers mail
Make use of convertplug wordpress premium plugin which is not free but affordable to offer your readers an offer they cant throw their eyes away from. Note it must be free and organize e.g. eBooks of tactics or free stuffs to give them if they register. Ask for their mail in order to unlock and download that free eBook
Note: this procedure has helped so many bloggers like neilpatel, harsh agrawal. Jeff bullas, backlinko and so on to get large leads that’s why they are one of the richest bloggers we have today.
Join affiliate program
This is also a money making platform just like Adsense but functionality are different because in this platform you don’t earn money per click but you earn by referring someone to buy a product and when that product is bought you get a commission for that sale. But I must say this platform is the best but the only challenge you will have is convincing someone to buy from you and traffic. There are lots of affiliate programs e.g. commission junction, Amazon, bluehost, Namecheap and so on.
Pro tip: make sure the product you want to sell is related to your niches e.g. I run affiliate program on wp-plugins and wordpress themes and webhosting because that’s my niche. So if you are running an entertainment niche run product related to that.
For bloggers related to my niche here is a guide on how to run affiliate program on Namecheap.

Monetize your blog with your product/services
If you are expert in your field,you can offer services or products to your blog readers. There are many bloggers offering services or products to their readers and they are making money from it.
It’s also perfectly okay to use more than one of these monetization. In fact, you can use all the three at the same time. But make sure you promise yourself not to disturb your readers and visitors with it.
