How do you make money on your blog?
How about selling banner ad spots? A few months back, I had a client ask if I’d post her banner ad on my blog for $120 and I really hadn’t thought about it, but why not?
So, I posted one, and we considered the value of selling banner ad slots for $120 per blog. Nothing special, just a spot at the bottom of the blog where you could post a banner, across the bottom of the page. Easy to do, and it ads a graphic element to the page, that might not be there, if you didn’t put a banner there… So, again, why not?
So, I took her up on the price for her ad, and started letting other clients, friends, bloggers, and online business owners know that I would post a banner ad for them if they wanted one. The price is easy, and the ad stays for as long as my blog stays online, so it’s better than almost any other form of advertizing, because my blog posts are searchable, SEO is good, and marketing strategies on my blog include all kinds of interactive traffic generation, including paid traffic at times. I do the mashup for blog marketing!
The key to marketing blog banner ads, is literally traffic. If you have enough traffic, get enough incoming business in a given niche, your content is valuable and posting banner ads can be another means of bringing cash income to your blog. IF you’re looking for ways to make some cash on your blog, this is one way of getting the job done while you do what you love – write blog posts!
