How to monitize your blog for best income results

I bet you have tried everything to get just a few pennies from a blog you have put your heart and soul into. So what are you doing wrong? The most common mistake that I personally see is ads plastered all over the place and the worst offenders are those flashing red banners. Blogs that have that going on will see a high bounce rate in there readers. What they are doing is assaulting the senses.

Here is what you should be doing. Say for example you have a health foods blog. First you need to find an affiliate program that has lots of companies that have products or services that a reader to a health foods blog might be interested in. One of the best ways is to go to the main companies' website and look around to see if they have an affiliate program. If they have a product that they either make or distribute then they might have an affiliate program too. Join it and then start to promote that product.

The best way to promote a product or service is through your own personal review of the product or service and I mean a genuine review. Your readers want to hear what YOU thought or experienced with the product. For example, on that health foods blog, you could write a post about "diets for quick weight loss." In that post you could mention some of the products you have used including the one you are promoting.You want to be able to put several text links to that product in your review as well as a banner in the article itself (not at the beginning or at the end). People will only click on those links should your article be, #1 well written and #2 believable. Fail on either of those points and you won't get any clicks.

Lastly I want to point out that you must pick a product or company with a good landing page. You can sell your heart out all you want and send customers to those products all day long but if the page you sent them to is terrible then you have lost a sale. You have to pick and choose where you want to send your readers to and that page had better be the place they can buy the product right away.
