 Affiliate marketing is the way for those who are experts in a plot of land and are able to establish relationships with customers. Those who know their readers perfectly well and know what activities will bring profits. And they want to decide for themselves how to make money on the blog. Here, however, a lot depends on the artist's commitment. Valuable content, detailed analyses and recommendations do not happen by themselves. Even if the author has a proverbial lightweight pen.

Secondly: Real-Time Bidding (RTB) and Google Display Network (GDN). Under these - for some of us - mysterious terms are common features. Auction model of purchasing advertising space.

In both cases this means that advertisers bid (real-time) in real time, whose advertisement will be displayed. This happens automatically, and the systems choose those advertisers who will offer an appropriate rate for displaying an advertisement according to the requirements.

To be part of the RTB ecosystem from the publisher's side, you must register with one of the so called supply-side platforms, Appnexus, Admeta, Adexon, iBillboard, and to join Google's advertising network, you must register directly at

How much can you earn on the website in this way? It depends on that. Among other things, from the profile of service users, and this is closely related to the quality of content. Interesting, professional or engaging content attracts more profiled users. How much you can earn depends also on quantitative indicators, i. e. the number of visits to the site, the number of clicks on the advertisement, the number of page views, unique users, etc.

Publishers in RTB may set the minimum rate at which a given area will be auctioned (so-called price floor). Larger services and more profiled services, which also have a stronger bargaining position, may be tempted to use the so-called "private dealers", i. e. to offer a certain part of their space as a Premium offer in the RTB ecosystem. This surface is usually more expensive.

The auction system can therefore be instructed to the owners of websites who prefer to rely on automation. Of course, you should not exaggerate and hang your own side with banners like a Christmas tree. Internet users have already learned to effectively ignore such advertisements.

How do I take care of the content on the website - this standard and advertising?

The growing interest in content marketing is clearly visible. For the sake of a complete picture, it is worthwhile here to reach for one of the most accurate definitions of this species, which so far has been formulated by anyone. At least in our view.

Content marketing is the opposite of advertising. It's about engaging customers in what they really want, in a way that serves your brand's goals and ideals, rather than pushing your logo to get just a fraction of their interest. It is to win exactly the kind of customers you are looking for instead of an indefinite group of people. It is to provide the recipients with a desired experience that will help them - not to distract them from what they have come to you. In short, content marketing is an evolutionary product of advertising itself, which is something more effective, more efficient and much less rejecting,"said Keith Blanchard from US marketing company Story Worldwide.

So it is the author's materials - inspiring, useful and trustworthy - that are better suited to the goals of the brands than traditional advertising banners. And they are certainly more responsive to the needs.

Let's come back here to Micha? Szafra?ski and his analysis, which put him in his wallet about PLN 69,000. This was not an advertising product description. Szafra?ski did not write that a given position "is the best one, because yes". This was a detailed, substantive analysis. First he himself contacted the rules and then tested the product in practice. He set up a place, and on the blog he gave specific enumerations. He also included an Excel spreadsheet for downloading - an effective interest rate calculator for the bonus deposit. Above that, he placed a link leading straight to the form. Which filling resulted in opening a deposit.

Summing up: Szafraski is an undisputed expert. He described one of the available products on his blog. The result? 1153 new deposits. They are people who have passed on to the website of a financial institution from Szafraski's blog and have opened deposits. In 8 days.

How to prepare good content specifically for advertising?

Would you like to create good content for the advertiser? Cancel your winners. They are unbelievable, they instantly arouse suspicion and reluctance. Content marketing requires objectivity and objectivity from the creator. A proven form of content in which you can, for example, sew affiliate link (such as Michal Szafraski) are your own product rankings, reviews and analyses, dedicated sections/cycles and guides.

While taking care of your normal content, published not as part of the activities for advertisers, also work on its form, diversify it. Sometimes, for example, instead of a standard article, you can create an e-book to give users a handful of practical information. You can use ad network to monetize your blog, the best one is Revenuehits:
