Web logs or blogs, began as someone’s online journal,

a way to express opinions and thoughts and communicate

with others on a more personal level. It became such a

successful platform that it wasn’t long until

marketers, online business owners and professionals

took note of its potential. These days, blogs are used

for marketing, putting out news, sharing information,

building a business network, teaching, etc. It also

doesn’t hurt that once in a while, you get to use your

blog to make money as well through ad placements. So

how does advertising work on a blog?

Popularity means income It’s a sad fact and rather

prejudiced against blogs that are just starting out

but to make advertising work on a blog, that blog-tips/your-blog-his-marketing-how-advertising-works-on-a-blog”>blog has

to have enough traffic. Without sufficient traffic,

the ads found on that blog will just not find an

audience and therefore will not earn.

Now to build traffic, your blog has to have a strong

niche and targeted content. Finding a niche for your

blog can be tricky, especially if the topic you’re

offering is obscure and not that easily relatable in

terms of advertising. Tricky, of course but not

entirely impossible. You’d be surprised at the number

of targeted ads some little known topics generate.

However, your best bet and the surest way to make

advertising work on your blog is to promote a topic

that is highly targeted or one that speaks to a niche

audience. By building a following, your blog will gain

enough popularity to be trusted by advertisers.

Advertising on your blog The way advertising works on

a blog is simple: advertisers want to promote their

products and services, your blog provides the platform

with which their ads can gain exposure, mainly by

being the site where their target market frequents. If

your blog is about shoes, the people who visit your

blog are those who want to know more about shoes. From

the shoe advertisers’ point of view, these people are

a gold mine, more likely to buy their shoes based on

the interest they have shown.

There are two ways you can make advertising work on

your blog: by providing ad space on your own or by

relying on an advertising server to do the work for

you. Selling ad space on a blog is fairly common,

particularly on blogs that target a niche market. You

simply set the rates, actively contact advertisers and

agree on the terms. Or, the advertisers can contact

you, after seeing the potential of your blog.

How you get paid is simple enough: once the ad has

been placed on your blog, your visitors will click on

it. Depending on your agreement with the advertiser,

you could earn either through the number of clicks the

ad receives or the type of action solicited by the ad,

such as a purchase or a subscription.

If you’re fairly new to the blog universe and would

rather build your reputation slowly by providing

quality content, you might find yourself too busy to

actively negotiate and communicate with advertisers.

If this is the case you can choose to work with an

advertising server. One such is Google’sAdsense,

although there are others that work just as well.

An ad server looks at your blog and determines the

best ads that relate to your content. You simply take

the code, put it on your blog and let it go to work.

You simply have to collect your earnings using your

account. This is a rather passive approach to letting

advertising work on your blog but it can earn you a

little. Of course, if you want higher earnings, you

need to actively put in more effort and seek out

higher paying ads with the right combination of

keywords that work best for your blog
