Ads is not the key to real profit
I'm sure you're disappointed, but let me be honest with you, ads isn't what you're looking for to make real profit from your blog.
Yes, Mashable is making money with ads, but are you Mashable? How long will it take you to have that huge audience?
It'll take you years and years to get that audience in this crowded internet.
And ads don't build a sustainable lucrative business.
There are blogs with much lower audience and they're making huge money online, but they don't use ads.
If you think that ads is what you need to make money online, you're losing a lot of money without you know.
And this is all beside your audience are annoyed with the ads and you sound less of an expert in their eyes.
Ads is a bad solution to make money. But what works?
Affiliate marketing is a better solution
Affiliate marketing is better than using ads. Instead of getting a cent per click for every 300 visitors or something like this, when you promote a product that solves the problem of your audience, you'll get more money and you won't need all that traffic.
You'll get much more money than what you'll get with ads.
If you're starting and you've a good traffic, find a problem that your audience have and find the perfect solution and do an honest review. It'll take more time, but the benefits are huge.
And this is only one problem, of course, your audience has many more, so think about how much you'll earn.
The best way to make money online is to…
Create a product.
Instead of getting 50% of the money when you sent the visitors to others products, why don't you get 100% of your business and double your profit.
If your audience bought the product that you recommend that solve the same problem, then they trust you and they'll be much happier to buy YOUR product and you'll get 100% of the money.
