Making money with your blog

I have been noticing alot of questions out there in the social networking scene about how to make money blogging.

Google seems to take forever to make any money, and the bloggers just aren't happy!

Here are a few other things you can try to boost your income while having fun blogging:

Offer advertising- Many home business owners and small business owners are operating on a tight budget. Offer affordable advertising and it's a win-win situation for all. They can advertise to a target audience and you pocket a little spare change.

Affiliate Marketing Many companies will compensate you a portion of every sale if you put their button or banner on your site. Check with any companies that sell items similar to your product or service. See if they have an affiliate marketing link. Or go with a service like Commission Junction a "clearinghouse" of sorts for companies offering an affiliate opportunity.

Do product reviews and blog about it. Companies will let you test their products and then write about it. From what I understand, you can sometimes keep the product you reviewed.......sometimes there is $$$$ involved.

Check back soon for more on Reviews...I am hoping to have a guest blogger on this subject soon!

Join a Blogging Service, like

Hope this helps. Now get out there and make some moola!
