Bloggers Get Creative to Make Cash

January 16, 2008 at 12:47 am 4 comments

I talked with several publishers making so much from their blog that they left their day jobs. One such blogger – Rhett Butler, founder of Mongabay.com – makes $15,000 to $18,000 a month on his site about rainforest conservation. Such success usually comes from experimenting with ad-revenue models, advertised products and ad positions. It can take several months to find the best model for a particular site.

Of course, drawing big ad money depends more on having a blog with lots of interesting and unique content that draws lots of readers, showing up high in search-engine results for your topic and having ads that pique your readers’ interest. The vast majority of blogs make dimes, not dollars, a day, according to ProBlogger.net.

While the programs are expanding, some bloggers are coming up with their own ways to make money. For instance, Roger Fredericks, a golf pro who sells DVDs teaching golfers flexibility exercises, used to spend $10,000 to $25,000 a pop airing infomercials on the Golf Channel. When the network raised its rates last year, he decided to focus on making money on his Web site.

    Dear Sirs,
    My name is Thomas Garcia and I am new to this forum. I wasn’t sure where to make this post, and I apologize in advance, if I posted inappropriately,
    please advise.
    Few months ago, I stumbled upon information about
    investment funds, that are not readily available to the public. The profit percent, which participants could
    receive by joining in such funds, appeared
    shockingly high at
    first, but as I searched more about them, I could not pass on the opportunity. Guess what, today, I consider
    myself to become the successful
    player. My next step, is marketing field, so, I
    set up the blog, which
    provides detailed information
    about current investment funds. To see it, click here.
    I would would be glad to receive
    your comments.
