There are many newbie bloggers who start blogging with no good capital, so I thought if these bloggers could make up at least $50 to $60 from their blogs, they could use it for advertising and promoting their blogs, that is why I decide to write this post. Below I'm gonna offer some useful methods of monetization for small blogs, once your blog starts to grow you can switch over.
Well it is true that high quality CPM ads are reserved for only high traffic blogs, but it is available and useful for small blogs. You will not be accepted by Cascale Media or TribalFusion, nut you can use some small networks. You can some small ad networks listed on forums and other blogs.
It is true that CPM ads monetize your entire traffic, but if your blog has good conversion rates, you can use CPC ads, most of the high quality cpc ad networks accept low traffic blogs, and there is no doubt about making money if you put relevant ads.
Affiliate programs might be the right choice for publishers, you should put highly relevant and low cost, or payday programs, make sure the products or services you promote are not too expensive for your visitors. You can find good affiliate programs at commision Junction, Click Bank, Google Affiliate Network, etc, or you can find some visiting blogs in your niche and checking what products are promoted there.
