    Tips To Monetize Your Blogging

    People do things for different reasons and that is also true with blogging. Some bloggers simply desire to share individual experiences to love ones, speak about their interests, and the most evident reason today is to make money. There are actually successful bloggers who are able to earn hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in such a short time especially when done appropriately.

    Options For Monetizing Blogs
    The current blogging scene offers monetization options that you've never imagined. You can find direct advertising options as well as affiliate offers. You can enjoy the endless possibilities of earning money through blogging. However, without the so-called 'big T', these monetization options will definitely not work. What is the big T? Well, its 'traffic'. If your blog site doesn't have enough traffic, you will not earn any money.

    Here are some monetization options that you can embark in, supposing that you already have a great traffic.

    For starters, you can use internet services like PayPerPost and ReviewMe. The good thing about these services is that they aren't related to click through rates, traffic, and other related metrics. This is an excellent option for bloggers with a hectic schedule. When you write a review, you will also have a good source for your blogs.

    You can produce revenues directly by choosing this option. However, there are some things to remember. Don't let the services control your posting routine. A lot of sponsored posts often lead traffic away, make your website less attractive, and lowers your credibility. Make sure that you accept only the reviews related to the blogs that you're making.

    You will have more options if the revenue is based on the reader's actions, purchases, and participation. A good example is affiliate offers. With this option, you should have the aptitude to inject the existing contents of your blogs with the offers that let you earn money.

    Suppose your blogs are all about repairing credit, make sure that you provide links and advertisements for services associated with credit repair, credit reports, and other related services or products. Expect to yield dazzling returns in no time at all. Key players include NeverBlueAds, AzoogleAds, Share-a-Sale, and Commission Junction. You can find lucrative offers by visiting them online.

    Blog Advertisement Content
    If you want a less invasive option, this may be more suitable for you - try introducing content-based advertisements on the pages of your website. Based on the content of the pages, the displayed ads are automatically generated. Publisher Network of Yahoo and Google Adsense are some of the greatest players in this particular arena.

    If you try them out, you can also expect outstanding results. Each time someone visits your blogs, you can earn money. The ads are part of the bloggers' website and so you can earn more money. You will also be able to provide your audience with related contents that they may find quite useful.

    So what are you waiting for? Choose the monetizing option that will work for you. There are so many options out there but not all of them will work for you so make sure you choose wisely. When opting to monetize your blogging as well as gaining credibility as being a "successful blogger" the right attitude tone and quality of posts go a long way.

    If you use your talent appropriately, you can earn money for a long period of time. Log on to the internet now especially if you have the skills to become a blogger and don't let this awesome opportunity pass.

    If you want to know more tips and techniques to make money from blogging, here's one of the best blogging courses on the Net to monetize your blogging efforts...

    Product Review: POWER LIST MARKETING

    Power List Marketing caught my eye recently. It was promoted to me as the total and complete marketers site, allowing you to capture names and email addresses from every click on the net and after looking into it - I have to say I am impressed. Click here to get Power List Marketing

    I joined and took the upgrades - I figured, they offer a money back guarantee so why not..? You are not in any way required to take the upgrades to get the benefits of the site. However, they do multiply the benefits, I have found.

    What a concept - I must say.
    The building of a list online is perhaps one of the most important skills you can ever have and this site is the most incredibly easy to use system to literally explode your list.

    This benefits WHATEVER you promote.
    No matter if it is a Clickbank product, a matrix, an MLM or ANYTHING. Even google ad words and 'traditional' style of marketing can reap huge benefits from this site.

    You get to create your own opt in lists on total autopilot.

    Now there have been other sites that have done this, but none that then throw in a TOTAL Autoresponder system and Email marketing follow up system as well.

    The 'Secret Weapon' Sales System is a method for showing FULL PAGE ads -
    And not just from clicks on your own links - but from clicks on links across the whole network and in fact across the ENTIRE INTERNET!!

    Imagine that -
    Totally targeted, unblockable, Full page ad views from people that have already said they are interested.....

    That alone is going to put alot of dough in my pocket over the years to come.

    And this works virally--meaning as you make referrals into Power List Marketing (either by promoting it or just using it and visitors click the Power List Marketing image on the Full Page ad window to join) you also earn ad credits on THEIR link clicks. And this works up to 5 levels deep. So you can create a massive amount of free ad views and web traffic by referring others to Power List Marketing also.

    I didn't get to test the full effect of a big downline yet (I just got the tool) but I can tell you the rest of the site works exactly as stated--my links got clicked, My list is growing at a rate I have never seen before, and my ads got displayed. Power List Marketing even tracked my results so I know how many clicks and how many ad displays. That was an impressive unadvertised extra feature.

    There is one more benefit and feature which might be the best of them all--downline emailing. You can email your downline with offers, promotions, or whatever you like, and here is where Power List Marketing really shines. They took time to make the emailing often enough that it's valuable as a user, but no so often that it's a burden to your downline. But the best part about this feature (and actually the credit earning too) is that it tells you exactly how long until you can mail again. They even give you an instant 250 Member downline to mail to - before your first referral, but... THE TOP LEVEL IS WHERE TO BE FOR SERIOUS MARKETERS - A GUARANTEED 3000 MEMBER MAIL OUT COMES WITH THE PACKAGE... Whoa!

    Overall I have to say I am impressed with Power List Marketing. It is simple yet powerful, and delivers on its promises. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to explode their list and benefit from some excellent advertising.

    DesktopLightning Review - Strengths and Weaknesses

    If you've been following what's been going on in the Internet Marketing scene then I'm sure you've at least heard about by now.

    A lot of people are saying really good things about the site, but are they true?

    I decided to write up an honest review of the site, covering what I believe to be its strengths and its weaknesses, just to clear it up once and for all...

    ================================================================ - Strengths and Weaknesses

    Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars (* * * * 1/2)

    In A Nutshell
    A catchy new viral marketing tool, capable of broadcasting messages directly to people's desktops. Easy to use, and caters primarily to those who have something they want to promote and are looking for a better way to do it.

    (Read on for why I didn't give it 5 stars)

    1. Initial Impressions
    When I was first introduced to DesktopLightning, I wasn't quite sure exactly what to think. Everyone was saying it was going to be more powerful than e-mail marketing, but this seemed like too bold of a claim.

    I signed up anyway, since I usually give things a chance -- that's how I have found the several sites I do really trust and rely on.

    The signup process did take about 60 seconds, as advertised, and their software program downloaded and installed in about 30 seconds. No long, tedious install processes here. If you own downloadable software, you might want to take a look at
    how quick their install process is.

    Right after installing the software, it ran immediately, and I was quickly presented with a tool to invite my friends.

    Within one-click's access was my Inbox, the tool to send broadcasts, a statistics page, and my favorite, the "Build Your Network" page.

    I'll get more into why that's my favorite page later.

    2. Viral Growth
    This is where the site really shines, in my opinion. The purpose of a viral marketing site is that you should be able to invite just a few people, and then it will start growing on its own.

    Many sites claim to work like this, but few actually work as advertised.

    I'm not sure if it's because of their unique concept or the slick implementation, but this site is REALLY viral. Here's some of the testimonials they got, which I think sum it up pretty well:

    "I haven't ever seen a system build a downline so
    fast. I joined your program just to try something
    new. Four days later I had a downline of 43 people.
    This is unbelievable."

    ~ Harry Joseph

    "I invited just a handful of people only a few days
    ago and I already have 48 members on 5 levels below
    me. I am going to keep promoting this, but I see it
    has a life of it's own now. I couldn't stop my
    network from expanding if I wanted to!"

    ~ David Parton

    "This website is so viral - I received over 100
    sign-ups and my network is already 5 levels deep in
    less than 48 hours."

    ~ Rene Keiser

    Although they obviously can't guarantee results for anyone, the general consensus is that most people who do get those initial few people in are experiencing results similar to these.

    I give an A+ for spreading like wildfire.

    3. Direct-To-Desktop Broadcasts
    So, once you have the people in your network from the direct invitations and the viral growth, then it really gets cool. Now is when you get to broadcast whatever message you want directly to their desktops.

    Gone are the days of sending out emails and wondering if they were received due to spam filters and crowded inboxes.

    If you upgrade to their Platinum membership, then you can even get exact statistics on the percentage of your broadcasts that were opened, but the Platinum membership is not the subject of this review.

    Here's how it works -- the software is what allows the direct-to-desktop communication to be received. Since everyone in your network will have the DesktopLightning application installed, just as you do, this is what allows such smooth and instant communication to occur.

    Within one hour of your sending the message, everyone in your network who is online will receive a notification on their desktop that they can click to read your message.

    Anyone who isn't online at the time will receive it when they log on next.

    I'm sure you can see why this type of communication has been more successful than email as of late, so I won't get into it too much here. The basic point though is that there's no way your message can be lost, overlooked, or blocked by any filters.

    If you upgrade to their Platinum service you can do things like embed video and sound right into the broadcast, but again, I'll save the Platinum service for another review.

    4. Building Your Network
    Most sites out there nowadays don't really help you build a network of people below you. They just throw you a URL and tell you to run with it.

    While this works for most advanced people, it's not something that's very easy for people who are just starting out.

    DesktopLightning went really far this time to make sure that everyone has a way to bring people into their network, regardless of skill level.

    When you click on the "Build Your Network" link from within their application, you'll be presented with a surprising number of tools to help you build your downline.

    Everything from banners, to popups, to text ads, to invitation tools, to emails to send out, etc.

    Then, they continue to offer something which I haven't seen on any Internet Marketing site yet -- they have a "Starting From Scratch" section, designed specifically for people who have no list and no website with traffic.

    If you're in that position, then you'll love this section, since they detail specific strategies you can use to promote DesktopLightning (or anything for that matter), even if you don't have anything to start with.

    Quite a valuable resource.

    5. Not For Everyone
    With all that said, the only downside to is that it's not for everyone.

    Of course, some might see that as an upside, since it's a more targeted opportunity.

    Basically, the bottom line is that DesktopLightning is a promotional tool. You need to have something you want to promote or advertise before you can really make use of the site.

    This is all due to the fact that the basic concept is that you build a viral network of people, and then broadcast something to it.

    But, this "something" is whatever you want, so you must already have something you'd want to send to a lot of people.

    If you don't have something yet, you could start building your network first, and then once you get something to promote you'll be ready to launch it immediately.

    If you do have something to promote, that's when the site really shines.

    6. Conclusion
    I would recommend this site to anyone who has something to promote or advertise.

    It definitely works, and your downline will grow extremely fast if you put some energy into getting it started.

    The direct-to-desktop broadcasts are a killer app in today's online climate, where emails barely even get through anymore.

    The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it has nothing to offer for people who don't have anything to promote or advertise yet.

    If you want to advertise or promote something to a lot of people in a unique and powerful way, then this site is for you.


    At any rate, my general opinion is that since it's so quick to set up and try, if you have something you want to promote you might as well go check it out.

    You can always remove it later if you decide you don't like it.
