Monetizing Your Blog Beyond Banner Ads
I’m speaking at BlogWorld East in New York at the Jacob Javitz Center. Blog World has quickly become one of the best conferences for networking with well known bloggers, celebrities and internet marketers. This is the first time the event is being held in New York, and there will also be a Blog World West later in the year in Los Angeles, California.
Today I’m speaking on a panel with John Chow, Syed Balkhi and David Risley as the moderator. We will be covering the basics, advanced methods and additional tips and tricks of monetizing a blog beyond the use of simply banner ads.
If you weren’t able to make it to Blog World this year, I wanted to provide a detailed post on what you may have missed!

While many blogs do generate some form of revenue, they are not always monetizing their traffic to the best of their ability. Testing and combining different monetization for your blog, while not lowering the quality and experience of your content is what’s important.
You can view the slides below which gives examples of different web sites using each of these blog monetization listed above. Should BlogWorld release the full video of the session, I will add that to this post as well. Without audio or video, the slides don’t give the same impression, but still list working examples of each method.
Feel free to mention any other blog monetization tips or questions you might have.
