Getting paid each time someone clicks on an add on your personal blog is a great alternative way to make money outside of a home business. Google Adsense is one of the most popular tools you can use to do this. But what if you don’t want to use Google Adsense? What are some other tools you can use that are similar to it? Well lets look at some of those alternative ways….
How many of you are using Google Adsense and are benefitting from it?
When I first heard of Google Adsense I really didn’t pay too much attention to it although I signed up for it LOL (shame on me).. But after a friend gave me a little more detail about what it does, thats when I gave it a little more attention 🙂
I know you’re thinking that I would just sign up for anything without getting more information, and I do have to admit that I was like that when I first started doing online marketing. But now I’m much wiser and a bit more careful about different tools and programs.
When I think of Google Adsense I think the old cliche “Killing two birds with one stone”. If you’re someone that has a home based business, and decided to bring your business online, then it’s a must that you brand yourself by building a great reputation. For me I chose two different strategies which are blogging and social media. Despite the fact that you can also make money with Google Adsense, you can also use it to measure how to get good, quality target traffic for your niche!
Google Adsense In A Nutshell!
This is for those of you that don’t have a clue about Google Adsense or maybe just heard about it but still don’t have a clue.
In a nutshell, You can put ads provided by Google on your blog or website. Each time someone clicks on the ad, you get paid. There will be different ads that will be relevant to your blog post or website. If you have a blog post on Affiliate Marketing, more than likely you will have ads on different online marketing tools where they have an affiliate program.
Google Adsense use both text ads and image ads. These ads are payed for by advertisers who want to promote their business, products, services, etc… Since these advertisers pay different prices for each ad they want to promote, the amount that you earn will vary each time someone clicks on the ad.
There are a couple of terms you want to get familiar with.
CPC (Cost Per Click) – Each time an ad is clicked, the advertiser is charged that amount
CPM (Cost Per Thousand Impressions) – What an advertiser is charged for every 1,000 readers, viewers, or listeners.
