Everyone wants to earn money online but not quite sure how to actually make money doing it. Bloggers can make money through placing ads on their site by monetizing with CPC or CPM Ads. CPC refers to cost per click ads which are usually banners and are placed in content or sidebar. Whenever a reader clicks on the ad, you are paid for that click. CPM is cost per impressions ad that pay you a fixed money amount based on how many people view your ad.
Probably the most popular network to place these types of ads is Google AdSense. With this program, you need not to be in contact of advertisers, simply place the banner on your site. Google picks ads relevant to your content, and your viewers click on the ads. Another ways to make online money is to sell private ads. When it comes to selling ads then working with advertising networks is not your only option. Advertisers itself may come directly to you and ask you to place their ad on your site if you end up with enough traffic or you may also contact advertisers yourself. Notice that there is no middle man, that means you can set your own ad rates.
Selling private ads can be in the form of banners, links or buttons. You can even make money by writing sponsored posts where you write about or give review of an advertiser’s service or product. Another option is to write an underwritten post, which is where you can write about any topic, but the advertiser pays for a “Brought to you by” mention in the content. You might charge a one-time fee for a link within a post, for instance if you are hosting banner ads, you might charge monthly your partner. One of the bonus tip to maximize income, you can also choose to sell sponsorship space in your podcasts, newsletters and videos.

If you include affiliate link on your site directly in the content or through banner ads and if a reader clicks on your unique link and buys that product you have recommended, you can you earn a percentage of what he purchased.
