Ways to monetize a blog other than just selling advertisements
Once you get started a good number of visitors on your blog, there are a number of ways that you can use to monetize your blog. Many of the bloggers think that only selling advertisement like from Google Adsense or Media.net, etc are only the way to monetize a blog but that is the case. There are other so many effective ways to monetize a blog that can help you generate even better revenue than selling advertisements on it. If you think and analyze yourself that what benefits are the people getting who are using your blog traffic to advertise their business, then I am pretty sure that you can better understand the power of your blog traffic that would definitely make you think about applying other modes of monetization. When you let other people show their ads on your blog, then you are giving space to people to make money that you could use for yourself. Instead of selling ads on your blog, I would recommend you to share own products that could be any digital or physical. This could help to generate more revenue than just selling ads. The more interesting thing is that unlike selling ads, you do not need very high traffic to sell products. You can start selling with any number of visitors until the audience is genuine. (Here genuine audience refers to the traffic related to your business or product you sell)
