I have been making money on my blog and I must say that selling advertisement space on my blog is one of my top methods of making money from my blog.
In this post I am going to share some tips on how you can do the same to make money from your blog.
How To Make Money Selling Ads On Your Blog
Boost Your Blog Traffic
One of the many reasons why people choose to advertise their website, products or services is to get as much people as possible to view whatever they are advertising. When advertisers are looking for a blog to advertise on they want to choose a blog that has lots of traffic.
It would be very unwise to advertise on a blog that has little or no traffic at all. You simply wouldn’t benefit at all.
The more traffic you have then the more advertisers will be attracted to your blog.
Set Affordable Prices
If the price is right then you will sell all the advertisement spaces on your blog in no time.
But how do you determine how much you should charge for an advertisement space on your blog?
Well this determines on how much traffic your blog is getting and that is why I used to first point on boosting your blog traffic.
The more traffic your blog has then the higher you can set your price. Don’t be afraid to set your price as well if you think that this is what your blog worth, but bear in mind to be considerate that you do have other competitors selling ad space on their blog as well.
Have a discussion with advertisers and come to a price agreement and this will help you to get the upper-hand in selling that ad space.
Location Plays An Important Role
Location and placement of the ad spaces on your blog plays a very important role.
Advertisers want to place their ad where it can be seen because they want to get maximum exposure on their banner.
The 3 most popular places to advertise on a blog is in the header area, the sidebar or in content area. This is because most people who browse blogs are normally attracted those sections of a blog.
So if you do decide to sell advertisements on your blog then use those areas and you will make money from it.
Update Your Blog Regularly
I don’t now about you, but nobody wants to advertise on a blog that isn’t being updated regularly. That is a dead blog.
To attract advertisers then you should update as much as you can. Write posts and publish at least once or twice per week.
When advertisers see that your blog is being updated regularly then they will be more inclined to advertise on your blog.
Size Does Matter
What size of banners do you decide to sell on your blog? Remember size does matter.
It is always best to work with popular sizes on your blog. An advertiser might love to advertise on your blog but the sizes that you are selling not going to work for him.
Work with the popular sizes.
468 X 60
300 X 250
125 X 125
728 X 90
The sizes listed above are some of the most popular banner sizes. Use those for selling ads and get more sales.
Do You Offer Discounts?
Another great way to sell the advertisement space on your blog is to offer discounts to advertisers.
The thing is, people are more inclined to buy something when they are offered a discount. If you do this for your blog then you can sell basically every ad space on your blog.
Don’t just let advertisers slip through your fingers, tell them if they purchase a banner on your blog then you can offer them a text link ad at a discounted price.
I have tried this and I must say that it works.
