Now I understand how to make money from blogging...Part 3

Adgitize is new and has this widget like Entrecard. I joined them, put up their widget and let it be. Then I monitored my earnings, which was very low. Just USD 1++ per month. Then, this month, they started a new campaign to tell the bloggers how a blogger can really make money from them. I read the postings of other bloggers which I suspect is a kind of a viral campaign as they came up within days of each other and i decided to give it a try. It was not easy as you have to do a bit of 'work' such as clicking on nearly a hundred widgets on other people blog. The droppings or clickings on other people blogs were just one way for you to gain points and money.

Adgitize also wants you to dsiplay their advertisments as many as possible and this is another way for earnings. Then if you posted a post everyday, you can gain points too. Finally, the one where you know they will gain more money than you is by becoming one of the advertiser. You have a choice of 14 days for USD7-00 or one month for USD14-00. I was actually reluctant at first but I convinced myself that it was just an investment which might be worthwhile. I used my first Paypal transaction to buy some ad space and I suddenly don't have to click as many as 100 sites to gain 100 points. I only needed to go to 50 blogs. The maximum points you can get a day is 500 and these points are shared among all community in Adgitize which gives more to those who work or pay more. Fair right?

However, the best way to make money is by being listed in a advertising community like Social Sparks which gives out opportunity for you to earn. You can be an affiliate, which means you can promote a product by helping whoever selling it to sell that particular products such as what I have done which is to sell 2009 Entertainment coupon books for shopping for various things like dining, shopping and travelling in the United States. If you are interested you can click here. Then you can also earn by taking Cost Per Click in which each click on the advertisement earn you money. For me, the opportunity I have taken for CPC as it is known is for Blockbuster, the rent-a-movie shop in the USA. The best is paid post which can get you quite a high sum if the advertiser like your post. I did one but there is a bit of adjustment needed to be done to my posting for me to get nearly USD11++.

However, getting into Social Spark is not easy. I waited for my PageRank to be 2 and 3 for my 2 blogs and have been blogging for 9 months before I get approved. However, within weeks I have earn nearly USD3++. I think, as the posts said for the past 3 days, I now know how to make serious money from blogging...

It all looks like great advice. As I said before, this is the part I have trouble with. I think I probably want too much too fast. I'll look into these things and see where they lead me.

Weee~ dropping by from Innit :)

great post, i rarely see one that gives proper advice ^^

anyway i've tried both adgitize and socialspark.

adgitize's payout was way too low for the amount of work I put in so i quit. i had the blockbuster CPC too but all my 10 clicks were rendered invalid and I have no idea why. Maybe you would like to advise me on that?

Cheers! gave a nice nang at innit :)
