Earn Money From Blogging: Five (5) Ways To Monetize Your Blog

There are several ways to make money online from blogging. Once you have honed your writing skills, the only thing you need is a good platform, and you’re almost good to go! You can begin on setting the blog up, work on optimizing it, then building readership based on your selected niche and later improving traffic to increase money-making opportunities. Here are five quick tips to get started:

Sponsored Reviews. Review products and services on your blog. Get paid from $5 to $1000 on Sponsored Reviews or $20 to $200 on Review Me for each completed honest review posted on your site. Choose something that is related to your blog topic so your regular visitors can totally relate with the review.

Sponsored Post. Earn money from home by blogging about your favorite products, services or website. For PayPerPost, you can opt to accept an offer from an advertiser to submit an entry based upon their criteria (i.e. number of words, links or keywords required) or you can choose to negotiate your own deals. Funds are usually released after 30 days. As soon as your balance reaches $50, you can withdraw them via Paypal.

Banner Ads. Display banner ads from different advertising networks on the top, inline or bottom sections of your website. One of the popular ones is Google Adsense. Adhere to their guidelines and you’ll be eligible to earn from the clicks. First thing to consider is the ad placement so that the advert will be visible yet would not cause unnecessary bounce rates. Weigh the number of ads you’ll include as less ads may mean your space is more valuable for advertisers.

Widgets Ads. Embed the widget into your sidebar and let it blend with your overall theme. Choices range from Shopzilla, Chikita, and Amazon Associates.
Contact Me Page. Let your readers know that you do freelance work. Craft an impressive Contact Me Page to attract potential employers to hire your services.

Benefits of Living in the Province

The most congested areas in any country are always the cities and urban areas. This simply means that a considerable percent of any country’s population are residing in these urban areas as well. Not many people realize that despite the benefits of living in the city particularly in Metro Manila, there are many reasons why living in the province can sometimes be more advantageous. 

If you are a Metro Manila dweller who’s thinking of making a big jump by getting a house and lot in Bulacan or in some other province and relocating there, there are many reasons for you to go ahead and make that jump. Below are some of the benefits you can get from living in the province.

  • Lower costs. Most families living in the provinces have lower costs of living than if they were living in Metro Manila. This is because food and other basic necessities are often less expensive in the provinces as well.

  • Cleaner air. Because of there are fewer cars and emissions in the provinces, the air is also usually fresher and cleaner. If you do not want to move that far from Metro Manila, consider getting a house and lot in Antipolo instead where the air is so much cleaner a few meters above Metro Manila’s elevation. Moving to the province because of health reasons is not unheard of and if you have a family member who has asthma or some other respiratory illness, you will definitely feel the effects of living in a place where the air is cleaner.

  • More space. Compared to small condo units and apartments in Metro Manila, residential spaces in the provinces may seem sprawling to you. If you want a place where you can grow an average-sized vegetable garden or a few fruit-bearing trees, then the province is for you. Because of the bigger spaces, it makes it possible to have pets such as dogs, cats, chickens, cows, and even horses. 
  • Relaxed environment. Many cities like Metro Manila exude a rushed and hurried lifestyle. People always seem to be hurrying from one point to the next and stress levels are often very high. If you want a more relaxed and laidback atmosphere, the province is the place for you. You will learn to enjoy simple things such as just sitting in your backyard and basking in nature around you. Living in the provinces will help make it easier for you to relax and take things in stride.

Things To Remember Before Renting Out Your Condo Unit

Nowadays, there are numerous condominium buildings that you can find in anywhere in Metro Manila. The popularity of these condominium buildings can be attributed to the many benefits of living in a condominium especially if you are in Metro Manila. Most condominium unit buyers either purchase one for their own personal use or for the unit’s potential as a rental unit.

The earning potential of renting out your condo unit is quite obvious with the number of Makati condominiums for rent alone. In business districts like Makati, condo rental prices can go higher than home rental prices in other areas. If you are thinking of purchasing a condo unit or you have a Bonifacio Global City condominium for rent, below are some tips that can help you before you rent out your condo.
  • Get your condo ready. Before putting up any advertisement for your condo unit, make sure that it is ready for viewing. Your condo unit has to be liveable already. In other words, the condition has to be ready for moving in. You will have to decide whether to offer a furnished or an unfurnished condo for rent. If you choose to furnish it, you will have to purchase and place the furniture and appliances beforehand.
  • Spread the word. Before putting out an advertisement online or in newspapers, try to ask your families and friends first if they know anyone who might be interested to rent your condo unit. It is often better to have someone you know rent out your unit instead of renting out strangers that you do not trust.
  • Make an advertisement. If you do not know anyone who is interested in renting out your condo unit, make an advertisement and post it in your building’s bulletin board if there is any or in public places in the vicinity. You may also want to post an advertisement online especially in forums, online communities, and sites that accept advertisements.
  • Have a rental agreement. No matter who will be renting your condo unit, it is important that you have a formal rental agreement which should be signed by you and the renter. This is for the protection of both your interests. Your rental agreement should include items such as the association fees, changes in the unit, deposits and advances, termination of contract, and many more. Consult a lawyer or someone you know who has been renting out a condo or house. And before both of you sign the agreement, make sure that each item is clearly understood by both parties and that all questions are addressed.
