Blog monetization is something that many site owners, content creators, and bloggers will spend a lot of time on. However, only a few will actually master the art of generating enough traffic to their site in order to make some serious money with it.

At the same time, before even thinking about site monetization, you must know who your target audience is, how to create the best content possible, and have an ultimate call to action in place.

These focus points will vary heavily based on the type of content you are creating, and the audience you are going after—but the monetization methods and the process still work the same.

Below, the popular blogger Zac Johnson is going to highlight some of the best ways to make money with content on your website or blog.

    The tips and strategies shared in this post is really worth notable.
    I could pick some extra lessons on AdSense. The connected link helped me to know better about the length and size and locations of Adsense placement etc. Though I have been using AdSense years, these facts were unknown to me. Zac very well explained it in these posts.
    Thanks, Erik for this hidden treasure.
    Keep sharing.

    Thanks for this article about making money from a blog, because as you say, setting up a blog is simple (or better still save yourself any stress and get it done for you) - earning money afterwards is more of a challenge.

    My prefered monetization method is affiliate marketing - and hosting is a good service to offer, because with a good hosting company it's a repeat purchase.

    I got started with Adsense but managed to break some T&C and my Adsense account was shut down, still owing me money. I never found out what I'd done to break the Adsense rules and it wasn't a lot of money, so I just moved on, but my advice is that if you use Adsense to monetize your blog, be very careful to follow the rules.

    Thanks for sharing, Erik. It's what most bloggers struggle to know!

    Yep, starting a blog is pretty easy. Creating a business model out of it - not so much.
    These are excellent tips. I belong to some of these affiliate networks. My niche is less common, so I often find offers that are popular, but not right for my blog. However, I do need to spend more time browsing through what's out there.
    Thanks for sharing this :)

    I found all three tips to be very helpful and find that the simple three-step process in the first one truly does make sense! I do need to find myself a better freebie to offer as my opt in rate bites. So thanks for the reminder. And Yes, Affiliate marketing is how I try to make money with content on my blog!

    I have never given much thought to Google Adsense as a way to monetize the content on my site though...

    Well off to click the link to learn more more on this process!

    Thanks for sharing

    I love this article. Then again, Zac knows his stuff!

    I am already doing two of the things he recommends (using affiliate marketing and earning with AdSense on Wording Well) and I have thought about hosting a webinar. I am just not ready to take that leap yet!

    Hi Erik, great info from Zac, I'd love to start doing webinars, one of the methods on my bucket list. I only tried adsense way back when I first started, interesting how it still can bring in some money. Affiliate marketing is something I've doing more of these days and I appreciate his tips about it! Thank you.

    Hey Erik,

    Affiliate marketing has become one of the most lucrative ways for bloggers to grow their business. I remember when I started it with a few web hostings.
    Most of the people rely on Google AdSense but there are many other ad networks to monetize a blog.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Hey Erik,

    Thanks for sharing great post here for all of us. I am also blogger and I can relate myself with this post.

    There is a trend of auto webinar as well for monetization. Auto webinar is like once we start doing live webinar successfully, we record video and put it on automated mode and drive traffic to it.

    Apart from it, Affiliate Marketing is an excellent way for bloggers and picking the right affiliate offers is again a key there.

    Keep sharing great content here. I am loving all your posts man :)
