Beyond Adsense: Alternative Programs Earn Huge Money!

By 02-05-2007   AdvertisingBloggingGoogle

People believe that Google Adsense is the simplest way to earn money online. Indeed it is the largest revenue source of this blog too. But several bloggers are redefining the way blogs make money by using alternative affiliate and money making programs to generate revenue far more than what Google Adsense can give.

ReviewMe rules

John Chow earned a huge $11,702.66 last month (and actually became a dot com moghul) with an Adsense contribution of just over a $1000. A break up of his income reveals diverse income sources.

* ReviewMe: $4,500.00
* Affiliate Sales: $2,150.00
* Text Link Ads: $1,352.81
* Direct Ad Sales: $1,200.00
* Google AdSense: $1,077.67
* Kontera: $1,000.00
* FeedBurner: $271.44
* TTZ Media: $150.74

His largest income is derived from Reviewme, where he is a popular reviewer of websites and their services for a fee. Another major revenue source has been his Text link ads, Affiliate sales and Direct ads sales. Kontera with $1000 has surely generated some interest in my mind. [BTW John Chow loves Quick Online Tips too.]

Double Your Adsense Income

Everton at Connected Internet has also posted his last months earnings of $6,418.35

# Google Adsense: $3,648.26
# Direct Ad Sales: $750.00
# Intellitxt: $555.05
# Text-Link-Ads: $535.43
# Tribal Fusion: $437.10
# Feedburner FAN: $350.24
# Vizu Polls: $110.72
# Chitika : $31.79 ($31)

Although Adsense is a major income source for him, he has doubled his income by adding multiple advertising revenue resources. He is making more money with Tribal fusion, Feedburner ads, Intellitext and even Vizu Polls.

Earn Money without Google Adsense

Indian bloggers might be interested in the $3061.3 earned by Thilak at Tech Buzz. It might surprise you but he has no Google Adsense on his blog and yet he is making money via popular Adsense alternatives.

*IntelliTXT: $693.65
*TribalFusion: $612.19
*Text-Link-Ads: $130.54
*Feedburner: $348.87
*BlogAds: $471.62
*Chitika: $104.43
*Direct Sales: $200
*Blogging on other blog: 500$

He has successfully monetized his blog using Blogads, Feedburner, IntelliTXT, Tribalfusion and Chitika. Earning over a lakh rupees per month is serious blogging income by Indian standards. I also use Blogads, but it has got me no advertisers yet.

Summary: The message is clear. You can successfully monetize any affiliate money making or Advertising program, you just need to do it right. With so many Adsense alternatives available, many of which are allowed with Adsense now, you can easily multiply the income generated by your site. If these bloggers can do it, so can you.

    But I hope adsense will look into it for us as more and more players are entering in the market. Yahoo, adcenter and bidvertiser. I am still using only adsense maybe I should think for other options now.
