Smart Ways To Monetize Your Blog – BlogWorld Presentation

Posted by

This was my presentation on smart ways to monetize your blog that I gave at blogworld. Thanks to Ben from for sending me the link!

This was a awkward presentation for me… 2 of the people that were supposed to be on the panel didn’t show, 1 new person was added at the very last minute (so only 1 other person then me showed that I knew what they were going to talk about). I had to regroup and wing a lot of it. And the microphone didn’t work unless I held it (which is why it sounds like crap).

The presentation is edited a bit there was a few things I said during the thing I asked to be edited out πŸ˜‰ lol… but for the most part everything is there.

I hope I did a good job explaining why I think Affiliates and Direct advertising are the best ways to go for bloggers. Those were my areas to cover ;).

    Great post. Once the Ad Review center comes we will have a little more control over ads displayed (at least ads targeted) on AdSense, but you are definitely right about that.

    Lol Jeremy,

    Isn’t this the second time you held a presentation and the other panelists didn’t turn up.

    You gotta sort it out, smack some people to make them turn up next time :).

    By the way, did you get a chance to take a look at my email?

    You know what Shoe, I would pay big bucks just to sit down with your over dinner and a few drinks just so I could pick your brain. Your never on camera enough or at least I can’t find it.

  7. Affiliate Confession

    Yes Adsense sucks, especially since people can target your site without you knowing it. And I hate the fact that you can’t have clicks open in a new window, that just completely sucks. No other major advertiser or affiliate program works that way.

    I run a dog site possibly similar to the one you mentioned (different breed, though). What’s the actual site? I’d like to check it out and compare. I do well w/ direct ads, but not affiliate programs for some reason. Maybe i’m not picking the right ones or promoting them right.

    for this conference it seemed to happened a lot… it was the first time it was being run and a lot of the speakers were in the dark about when and where they were supposed to show up. But even with that said it was my favorite conference of the year.

    Interestingly enough, this goes back to the old adage of high quality = very targeted = high conversion rate.

    $4200 off of one post in one day. Not bad at all!

    Thanks for posting the video. I think you did a great job speaking. I made my recommendations to Blogworld about making the shoots next year a little more video friendly, including better sound, lighter backdrops, mics for the audience and so forth. I think next year you are going to see a streamlined BlogWorld, with less speakers and more order. Overall it was amazing to have the wealth of new media knowledge in one place. I have the keynotes on our homepage at and will be adding more videos after our launch in January, so everyone can tune in to what went on.
    We don’t need old media, let the muther#%$’s Blog, Blog muther#%$’s Blog.
