Your readers are your most valuable asset. You appreciate them visiting your blog from time to time. But most of the time, they get upset with banner ads because it keeps them from enjoying your blog content and experience. These annoying banner ads might just be the reason why you will lose a lot of readers and visitors and not keep them coming back for more. Of course you do not want this to happen but you will also be torn by the idea that you can’t earn money through your blog without these banner ads.

How to Make Money Blogging without Using Banner Ads

Fortunately banner ads are no longer the main source of revenue for most web sites and blogs. There are many ways to monetize your blog without these bothersome banner ads and we will discuss some of these methods below.

  • The Steps of Affiliate MarketingCreate a product or service that you can sell through your blog. Use the niche from where your blog belongs as an inspiration to develop a product or service. For example, if you run a blog on skin care, you can write an e-book on skin care ideas and sell it in your blog. This way of monetizing your blog will not only promise good income but will also enhance your capability and credibility as the blog owner. The great thing about creating your own product or service is that you get to keep all of the profits.
  • Use your skills and expertise to make money. If you are currently receiving suggestions and comments in response to your blog, that means you have loyal visitors and readers who planned of reading your posts to enhance their lives. In that case, there is a good chance that you have proven your expertise in the niche you have chosen. If you are in the online marketing, coaching, business field, or any other area that offers “consulting” like services, you have a great opportunity at hand. You can arrange online chats, discussions or web conferences where internet users can participate after paying fees and get guidance and tips from you on some issues they face.

Though most of your loyal blog readers would readily accept your paid services, to attract the attention of new readers, you should consider giving away freebies like e-books and videos.

  • Choose affiliate marketing without the banner ads. The mere fact that your visitors love your blog means that they can help you in making money through affiliate marketing. When writing posts, just mention a product that you trust and request your readers to check that it on the shopping website. Each time the reader clicks through the link, you will earn a commission and that’s called affiliate marketing.

At the end of the day, the content and experience of your blog is what comes first. Focus on revenue generation only after you have a loyal following on your blog and don’t try to make money with your blog right away.
