Monetizing Your Blog Beyond the Banner Ads

I’m off the New York for Blog Word Expo. If you see me, make sure you say hi! I’ll be the one wearing the, “I’m John Chow, Bitch!” t-shirt. If you are at BlogWorld, then I like to invite you to my “Monetizing Your Blog Beyond the Banner Ads” panel session with Syed balkhi and Zac Johnson. We’ll be doing the panel on Wednesday, May 25 at 3:45 in room 1A14 of the Jacob Javits Center.

Monetizing Your Blog Beyond the Banner Ads will be a panel of Syed Balkhi, John Chow, and Zac Johnson. This session goes in depth of numerous ways of monetizing your blog. We notice that beginners usually end up giving up on their blogs within the first eight months because it does not bring the monetary benefits that the blogger desires. In this presentation, we plan to highlight some of the mistakes made by beginner bloggers and provide solutions for them. We also plan on showing some of the methods that have worked for us through out our years of blogging experience.

My flight to the Big Apple is a redeye. My plane lands at 6AM EST. See you in New York!

  1. The big three lol …. Very good people to learn blogging from that’s for sure. I hope the people that are lucky enough to run into you guys are lucky enough to pick your brains, and learn some valuable tips. Blogging is a business and it can get tough at times but stick with it beginners. You will eventually succeed with the right work ethic, and knowledge.

    1. Yes Jason I have been following John since last year and I’m used to his style. for the others, I’m yet to find out

      1. I’m surprised you haven’t been looking at the others as well, I regularly look at their blogs etc. They’re all great guys who add real value!

    2. Should be good, hope you guys record it at offer it as a webinar or something.

    3. Zac Johnson says:

      This should be fun. I will be doing a post tomorrow on the blog about everything I will be covering on the panel as well.

  2. Boy would love to know more about this option.

    I am always interested to know the various other methods to make money.

    Seems to me that this is going to be very quite interesting as well … John are you going to record this ?

    1. I am also awaiting it

          3. Yes Nicholas i have seen your mentioned the link,that is really pretty and interesting….

  4. Yoo Very nice.. I’m in Sri Lanka and I’m a still student SO I’m not able to come for BlogWorld Expo. Anyway wish you the best of luck!

    Yeah As others asked.. I’m also want to know that will this be record?

    1. I think there is a live stream for it. Although im not 100% certain

  5. I won’t be able to make BWE this year, but I’m curious to hear what other methods you guys are suggesting.

    CPM banner ads have worked well for us, paid links are a no-no, affiliate links usually don’t convert so great, and Google Adsense can’t compete wtih ad network’s CPM rates.

    1. Affiliate Links make a huge chunk of money for blogs. Providing you are promoting the right one for your audience!

  6. Michael says:

    Sounds like it will be a great Blog Word Expo.

    If only I could be there myself! Hopefully I’ll get to join the blogging events soon when my website becomes a bit more mainstream.

  7. fas says:

    Lets see what mischief you do this time around :p

    1. I’m sure John will find plenty of trouble to get into.

  8. exsuit says:

    Yes – Please post the presentation notes for those of use overseas and not able to attend blogworld! goodluck with the presentation!

  9. The only thing I know except banner advertising is infolinks

    1. Techabouts says:

      You would have knew infolinks only after you visited JC

    2. If they’re converting well.. you should see what’s getting clicked etc and replace those with affiliate links and earn much more!!

  10. Kirk Taylor says:

    The text of your shirt is very funny. Monetizing your blog is such an important topic. Without monetization or a membership site, people can bust their behind creating High Quality posts and never get compensated for all the experience required to write the post and all the time and effort necessary to create it. Feel free to record and redistribute this presentation. I’m sure it will be very popular for the people who cannot attend or watch the live streaming!
    Take Care,
    Jupiter Jim

  21. Thanks for the tips about monetizing it will help to track our site regularly
