The key is to build a strong relationship with your target audience and embark on a journey of earning money from that mutually beneficial relationship. Here are 3 tips for monetizing your design and remodel blog.
1. Pay Per Click PPC Advertising
This is one of the most common ways of making money through blogs. Using advertising tools like Google Adsense, Adroll or AdClickMedia, you can get paid for every click on the ad. Any visitor who lands on your blog will see the advertisement and might be tempted to click on it. This is the point, where you will get paid an amount from the advertiser through the app controller. Mostly the tools are optimized for the preference of advertisements that will be displayed on your blog. Being an interior design and remodeling blog, audiences will see ads related to this niche.
2. Affiliate Marketing
If you have been blogging for some time, I am sure you will be familiar with the concept of affiliate marketing. It is a great way to monetize your interior design blog. One of the passive ways of earning money, you can use online retailers like Amazon and promote their products in your blog’s content. Using your specialized niche, you can highlight interior design, home décor and remodeling tools and products that are offered by the affiliated manufacturers or sellers you currently utilize in your project work. Place links to their ecommerce stores and get paid a specific percentage if your visitor makes a purchase from that store. It is making money from promoting products that you recommend being used in your interior design and remodeling projects.
3. Sponsored Blog Posts
If your blog is popular, with a substantial amount of regular traffic, it is most likely that you will be contacted by allied contractors, suppliers, and other industry stakeholders for providing space for sponsored posts and content. They will pay you for this space and in many cases provide written blog posts that promote their products and offer links to their websites. The key here is to ensure that the products and services offered by these paid clients are up to a given standard and will not impact your own credibility and trust with your target audience.
These 3 tips will help you monetize your design and remodel blog but for successful money earning potential, you will need to have a significant amount of traffic being directed to your website. No traffic would mean putting in all the effort and energy without any prospects of return. For additional information take a look at our resource library.
