Monetizing your Outside Blog - The 30 Day Challenge Day 1/Module 6

Services for Real Estate Pros with Marketing with Kate
Today's 30 Day Challenge Lesson starts the monetization process of your word press niche blog. This lesson shows you how to add Google Adsence to your page and teaches you how to test the commercial value of your niche.

The information in todays lesson does not apply to your Active Rain blog as AR has strict rules against these types of links. That does not preclude you learning the information and applying it to an outside wordpress blog that you would use as part of your overall marketing message.

Action For The Day

Kate - It may be a good idea to use Google Adsense.  The problem will be that competitor ads or inappropriate ads will appear on the blog.

Hi Kate,

It seems intriguing to use Adsense. But it also feels like it takes something away from the friendly local blogger just talking about something of interest to him/her.

Mortgage Finders and Phil,  there is quite a debate among bloggers about monetizing blogs.  I'm firmly in the camp that if you are spending time blogging for business, there needs to be an ROI.  That ROI will be different for each blogger. 

Follow this module through to it's completion and you will see how adsense can be effectively used without hurting your blog or homey feel of your blog.
