blog monetization

There are various techniques for blog monetization but every blogger worth their salt are wondering which ones will work in 2016.

Will it be Google Display ads, affiliate ads, ebooks, trainings, sponsored posts or something else?

At Blab2Learn, we asked this question to Harsh Agrawal, India’s leading blogger.

What Blog Monetization Techniques will work in 2016

During the conversation we touched upon various techniques like:

1. Affiliate Marketing
2. Having your own product
3. Brand Ambassadors
4. Selling Merchandise
5. Sponsored Posts
6. Retargeted Pixel using Facebook
7. Workshop/Summit

While the conversation started with challenges in display ads due to ad-blockers, we moved to the topic of ‘Affiliate Marketing’ soon after. Harsh talked about using platforms like Skimlinks, Cuelinks, etc and we also talked about other techniques of creating own products and selling them.

Harsh also mentioned about how brands are now investing in individual bloggers and appointing them as brand ambassadors. Depending on your popularity you can have 6 months or 1 year contract and monetize your presence.

We also went through 2 unique blog monetization techniques – Facebook retargeting using pixels and workshop/summit.

According to Harsh, if you have a niche blog, the workshop/summit technique would do wonders and you being a disruptor would have the first-mover advantage.
