This month, Aaron Hockley will present an introduction to making money with your blog. Perhaps you would like some additional income from your blog but you don’t know where to start. Perhaps you tried using AdSense but were disappointed to see earnings of a couple dollars per month.
We’ll look at some prerequisites to monetization, options for making money (including advertising, affiliate programs, membership programs, and sponsorships), how to decide which options might work given your topic and audience, and some specific tools related to making money on your blog.
Aaron has presented at BlogWorld & New Media Expo as well as WordCamps in Portland, Seattle, and Las Vegas. His newest website offers photography tips (and will probably get referenced during his talk).
