Making a lot of money from a blog isn’t something that happens overnight. It takes time (years, not weeks) for most people, solid content, knowledge of search engine optimization (SEO), and perseverance. You must have a strong desire for it, be strategic in your approach, and never give up.

But how does one go about becoming a digital publisher in the first place? And how do you sell ads the most effectively? We’ll look at the best ways to sell ads and how to get started with online advertising in this article.

Affiliate Advertising

Affiliate marketing or advertising allows a website owner to immediately become involved and generate cash by promoting the products of other manufacturers and service providers.

This is how it goes. You locate a product or service you enjoy or wish to write about, check to see if it has an affiliate program, and then sign up as an associate partner. Some affiliate schemes demand a minimum amount of traffic, history, or recognition. As a result, you may not be eligible for all products and services.

However, if you do, you may write a product review and include your affiliate link in the post for your visitors. You will receive a commission if your visitor purchases the promoted product. Commissions could be anywhere from 10% to 70%. You can make a lot of money if you can sell a lot of things. Affiliate marketing brings well over $500,000 a year for a few blogs.

You might look at some affiliate networks to determine if they’re a good fit for your website.

Programmatic Advertising

You can sell your advertising instead of or in addition to buying them. If a blogger is pursuing this kind of monetization, the webmaster will usually put a “Advertising” button on the home page’s main navigation menu.

It’s entirely up to you how much you charge, although most marketers will look at the number of monthly users or monthly page views. This allows them to attempt to establish and quantify fair advertising values.

If you’re thinking about taking this route, find some bloggers who are already doing so and see how they do it. On their homepage, many will include a summary, identifying sizes, possibly cost, and a way to contact the person in charge. Others will offer a media kit – usually a multi-page PDF – that goes into deeper detail about the website’s story, readership, and advertising benefits. To tempt marketers even more, bloggers will build programs that incorporate mentions on their social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
