In this blog post I’ll go over a couple of ways to monetize your blog traffic so you can start to run a more profitable online business in no time flat.
The important thing is to stay focused on one thing and that is to get your visitors to optin to your webform. That way you can get started in the first phase of the realtionship building process. We all know that people buy from people they know, like, and trust.
1. Build A Massive List
The first step when wanting to monetize your blog is to put in your aweber webform or optin into the right sidebar of your blog, preferbably above the fold if at all possible. Above the fold is what you would see if you didn’t have to scroll down the page. Another thing you can do is put in a webform that will actually pop up any time some one visits your blog. That strategy is known to be really effective as well. You also want to make sure you have a good call-to-action and that what you have to offer for their contact info is enticing.
2. Offer some free training
This is a simple one. Why not just offer some FREE training in the form of a link on your blog posts. Just make sure that the free training you give away requires your visitor to optin to a lead capture page.
3. Popup Webform
The popup webform is the first thing that a visitor will see when they visit your site. I’ve heard from a lot of bloggers out there that these little things are extremely effective. This is one thing that I wouldn’t overlook. If you join me in MLSP and become a platinum member, they actually have some neat MLSP custom popups you can put on your blog, but it’s up to you. Popup Domination and Aweber also have some good popup webforms as well.
4. Write an Affiliate Product overview.
To be effective with this startegy you should be a consumer of the product your promoting and hopefully you’ve had some good results with the product you are doing the review for as well. You could put this in the recommended tools section of your blog too if you wanted ,or a just as a blog post.
5. Membership Program
This one is more of an advanced strategy. Once you become an expert in the niche that you are in, and you start to get a good size readership , why not have a “members only” area of your website. This could be a password protected area of your website were you provide premium content for anybody who might be interested. This could be in the form of a monthly membership. What a great way to create a continous and steady income stream.
6. WP Greet Box
This is an awesome wordpress plugin that I use myself. It will show up usually at the beginning of each of your blog posts. Usually it gives the reader a chance to signup to your newsfeed. Why not put a link in there that directs them to a lead capture page offering them a goodie in exchange for the contact info.
Well there you go. The possibilities are endless, but here are a couple to get you started with to montetize your blog.
