The following is a guest post by Michael Evans. If you would like to write for this blog, please checkout the guidelines here.

So, you have found your calling in blogging. It sounds really great, but in order to sustain, you need to master the art of how to make money blogging otherwise, all your passion, perfection and perseverance will wear away with time, and you will be seen trying to find solace in your day job once more. Though several lists can be found while Googling the term – ‘how to make money online’, you may find few of them truly informative. To ease your pain and to help you come closer to Money, here we are going to share some methods that worth a try:

PPC Advertising Networks: Getting subscribed to pay per click advertising network is the best and the easiest way to earn some hard cash from your blogging passion. Though Google AdSense rules the roost here, there are some other players too. It is fairly easy to set it up. All you need to do is to sign up to any network you like and paste the given code snippet to your website. Once the verification process is complete, the advertising network will then serve contextual ad based on the content types and other factors. Your earning is dependant on the number of clicks the ad manages to draw from your visitors. Revenue from this model largely depends on the volume of traffic, click through rate and cost per click. Other than Google Adsense, some other popular players are – Clicksor, BidVertiser, Chitika, Clicksor etc.

CPM Advertising Networks: This advertising network acts more or less the same way like PPC Advertising Networks, the only difference is in the metrics. Unlike in PPC Advertising Networks, where you get paid for the number of clicks, here you will be paid based on the number of impression. The acronym CPM stands for Cost per Mile where mile stands for 1000 impression. The earning from this network largely depends on the position of the ads, its format and obviously, the network you have chosen. Some popular Right Media, Tribal Fusion, Value Click, Advertising.com etc.

Direct Banner Advertising: This is my favorite option to make money from blogging. This is direct because there is no middleman here. But you need to find out a person who is interested give banner advertisement in your blog. Unless your blog have huge audience and great presence in different social media websites, you might it really hard convincing a prospective advertiser. oiopublisher.com is one such platform where you can get some leads about banner advertising.

Text Link Ads: This is a great way to monetize your blog quickly. You would not have to wait for months to increase subscriber base or the number of visitors to get your blog to be able to monetize your blogging passion. You can easily get the ball rolling by getting subscribed to an available scheme. Here revenue model vary greatly depending on PR of the website, backlinks etc. Text-Link-Ads, Text-Link-Brokers, TNX are some popular places to get advertiser for text link ads.

Affiliate Marketing: This is probably the most popular form of earning money on the web and opens up to lots of online business opportunities. Under this scheme, you will be able to sell other people’s product for a certain amount of commission. Commission is generally determined either via CPL (cost per lead) or CPA (cost per action) basis. Some popular affiliate marketplaces are Commission Junction, Link Share, ClickBank etc.

Sponsored Reviews:
This is another easiest way to make money through blogging. However, the fact is that this tactic is mired with controversy due to the fact that these reviews are generally written by sponsored themselves and therefore, they are usually not so much useful and trustworthy from users’ perspective. However, you can earn some quick bucks from through it. Some popular sponsored reviews platforms are PayPerPost, BlogVertise, ReviewMe, Sponsored Reviews etc.
