3 Little-Known Pages On Your Blog You Should Monetize

It’s 2016, and I’m excited to be here again on Aha!NOW as an author.

On the 17th of January 2014, I had an exciting invitation from Harleena and submitted an article on My Killer Way to Make Money online.

Same year on December 15th, I had this chat where I spoke a little more about my family and me.

Today, I’m here with something again I know will help bloggers add a little more value to their blogs, and see more results.

It’s amazing how our blogs give us different ways to make money. Once you have built an active community around your blog, you can always monetize anytime.

Some of these ways to make money are quite obvious. However, to be able to exploit others, you have to put on your thinking cap and be smart.

In today’s post, we want to discuss some little-known pages on your blogs that can help increase your earnings.

It’s important to note that not everyone who visits your blog gets to see all the pages or blog posts that are published. However, some pages are very attractive, and some considerable attention must be given them.

5 Ways to Monetize or Use Your Blog Pages

Before we get to identify these powerful but almost not known pages, let’s throw some light on how to monetize or use them;

1. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is by far the most exciting way to monetize your blog, especially if you do not want to deal with the ups and downs of creating a product.

It’s simply the process of promoting others’ products and getting paid a fraction of the sales.

If you are new to affiliate marketing, or you are just not seeing expected results, I recommend grabbing a copy of my product Affiliate Marketing For Bloggers.

Exclusive for Aha!NOW readers, click the link above and use coupon code: ahaNow to cut $18 OFF

In this ebook, I share my exact method how I have empowered my blog with money making power.

I also brought out how cleverly some bloggers are generating real income from their blogs with Affiliate Marketing, by doing things most of us don’t know.

Now, note that we are still to uncover the hidden pages below. But how do you monetize them with Affiliate Marketing?

Simple!

a) Know your audience

Knowing your audience is the first step towards succeeding with Affiliate Marketing. Your readers won’t just hit the order button. They buy what’s interesting to them.

Once you know your audience and know the problems they have, you can always propose them solutions on your pages.

b) Propose the right product

Most of us do poorly or completely fail in Affiliate Marketing because we make the wrong choices of the products to promote on our blogs. Here are some reasons why we chose the wrong products;

  • They pay high commissions.
  • They are authored by friends or family.
  • We use them, so we think automatically, our readers like them too.
  • We’ve seen them advertised on similar blogs.
  • They are cheap.
  • They have very good testimonials
  • They have a huge list of
  • etc.

Once you are promoting the wrong product for any reason, be very sure to generate little or no sales. So it’s important to do a lot of research to ascertain we’ve found the right product before any promotion move is done.

2. Sell Your Own Products/Services

If you are product creator, you’ll agree with me that selling it on your blog can be very exciting.

The reason is that you can set the price, cut special offers or even offer free copies to keep your community moving. And of course, you keep 100% of the profit.

The same holds true for services. For those of you who do freelance writing, programming, designs, WordPress & blogging service, etc., it will be a huge point to mention these on the pages we discuss below.

If you have a profile on some micro job sites like Fiverr, SEOClerks, etc., another step forward will be to describe your services on these pages and link back to them.

3. Sell PLR Products

Some folks think selling PLR products is old-fashioned. That’s absolutely wrong. There are lots of highly valuable PRL products out there you can propose to your readers on these pages discussed below.

All you should do is locate these targeted products and repackage them. If you have three or four exceptionally good PLR products, why not create a page on your blog purposely for these products. By doing this, you can always drive traffic to it and make more sales.

4. Capture Lead

One of the top objectives, we as bloggers have, is getting out readers to sign up to our lists. Once you’ve had them on your list, you can always turn them into targeted traffic and buyers.

Placing lead capture forms on your hidden pages is not selling directly to visitors. However, I personally think it’s the best way to connect and keep a relationship with your readers.

5. Link to Other Pages

One thing I’m sure is that there are some key pages on your blog you’d always want to keep alive. You can always link to such pages from your hidden pages. This will always keep them active with traffic from other pages on your blog.

A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart.

3 Little-Known Blog Pages to Make Money From

Now, let’s take a look at these three pages and monetize and use them as I proposed above;

1. Resource/Tools Page

This is simply a page that lists the tools you are using on your blog.

Don’t even tell me you don’t have any tools because your blog, at least, runs on a premium theme or is hosted on a paid server.

These are some of the tools you can already mention on your tools page and link to them on your affiliate link.

The reason is that human beings are programmed to copy things that work for others.

If you tell your readers the SEO or Social media tools that you use, the chances are that most of them would want to get the same tools, and if you link to them on your affiliate links, you stand another chance to make the next commission.

So, do you have a tools or resource page on your blog? If not, why not create it now and let us know the tools you use that work for you?

If you’ve hosted your blog for the past 5 years successfully without any downtime or major breakdown, why not tell us about your host and make some money through Affiliate Marketing?

2. New Comer Page

The New Comer or Welcome Page is different from your tools page. It’s also very different from your home page. Most blogs, unfortunately, don’t have this page.

It’s a strategic page that targets new readers. It’s intended to give them guidelines how to find what on your blog.

Look at AdrienneSmith.net

Adrienne Smith Start Here Blog Page

This page is also suitable to invite your newcomers to your list, as you explain to them what to expect from you.

You can also use this page to invite new comments to important content on your blog, or even recommend some products that work great for you.

3. First Comment Page

This is one of the most neglected pages on most blogs and sometimes, I’m ashamed to think that I have not even made proper use of this page on my main blog.

A few hours ago, I had a look at my Jetpack stats and found out a huge number of new visitors get to this page. Simply, you can set up your blog to show this page to anyone that drops a comment on your blog for the first time.

Jet pack first comment stats

I set up JetPack on my blog almost mid of 2015 and by Jan 2016, it recorded almost 2k visitors redirected to my First Comment Page.

What you may want to do now is carefully craft this page to show your new visitors some exciting offers. While some bloggers use email capture forms, you can always test out to see what works for you.

How Do You Set the First Comment Page

If you are on WordPress, that would be an easy question to answer. You simply should install a plugin like this one or if you are using CommentLuv Premium, just check to activate the feature.

Before you even go ahead to install and activate any plugin, be sure to create a page (not a post) first and give it details of what you want to show your first timers.

These pages may look simple and negligible, but if you set them up and monitor your results, you may be pleasantly surprised how many sales and leads they can generate.

Over to you –

So, thanks for taking the time to read this post. Please share it on social media if you like the content.

Drop a comment below lets me know what you think about these blog pages. Do you also monetize your blog pages? I’ll like to hear your thoughts. Don’t forget to check out my blog for more interactions.

    Hi Enstine And Harleena,

    It is indeed a great joy to see Enstine here again on Harleena’s and Vinay’s page!

    Its really amazing to read the tips every new bloggers should make note of.
    Yes, all these three little known pages are not little known but not known at all!! LOL

    Yes, i never thought of a concept like showing or telling about our tools we are using! And again the rest two too are unknown to me, new commer page and first comment page!

    Though i have been to Adrienna’s page several times i never noticed that name!

    I just downloded the plugin of first commentPage and will surely install and check.

    Thanks Enstine for these valuable tips.
    Thanks Harleena for bringing Enstine here again!
    We wish you all a wonderful March ahead.

    Best

      If you have commentluv premium, you can just activate that option. At least, you ain’t going to install any new plugin again. If not, go ahead and give the plugin a try.

      I’m sure you’ll add some value to the lives of your new commentators 😉

      Thanks for the comment again sir. Hope to see you around again

    Hello Enstine,

    Good to see your guest post here again.

    I haven’t done all the monetization tips you’ve shared here today. I haven’t monetize my blog pages because i am so darn lazy 🙂 .

    Maybe the reason i haven’t been doing the above suggested monetization idea, is simply because Google AdSense is rewarding me pretty well 😀

    Your suggestions are note… I might try the tips shared today on a letter times.

    Have a beautiful week both of you…

      You’ve shared some actionable tips on your blog about this model and I can understand if your blog does that well.

      While you may want to consider these tips, don’t forget to tweak more so as to get more from what is already working for you.

    MOst people are not really aware of them. Adsense is almost like the popular way to go. i didn’t even know about First comment page.
    I need to go back to my drawing board and get some things set up especially my Resources page.
    Thanks for the enlightenment.

      The first comment page is a wonderful meeting place. This is where you can directly speak to those who come to your blog and decide to drop a comment for their very first time. It shows they’ve had at least one thing that impressed them. So engaging with them here strengthens the impression 😉

      Do have a wonderful weekend ahead as I hope to see you again

    Thanks for this post! I’m going to try to set these up. I’ve had affiliate links for a couple years and never make money. I’m just not good at it I guess. The hardest thing for me is to figure out what my readers need and if they have kids and all. I ask questions sometimes but don’t get answers. So, I’ll do these, thank you!

    Hey Enstine,

    It’s great to see you here on Harleenana’s and Vinay’s blog.

    These are great suggestions and the first suggestion reminds me that I need to update my Tools page. I haven’t updated it in two years. Shame on me!

    I think its a great idea to have a Welcome page for newcomers. This gives you a chance to introduce yourself and share how they can benefit most from your blog.

    I like the idea of having a page dedicated to first time commenters. This will give them the incentive to come back for more value.

    Thanks for sharing Enstine! Have a great weekend!

      Yes, those 3 pages are important as they can help add value to your blog.

      Most bloggers don’t have them but I think putting them up is a great idea.

      If there is need, you need to update your page too. That’s important 😉

      I hope you are set for a wonderful weekend

    Hello Enstine and Harleena,

    Thanks for this post. I learned something new today 🙂 PLR stands for Private Label Products right?

    Another way to monetize your blog is by creating a link from your freebie give away to your resources page. Blog subscribers who made it to the end of your freebie are most likely interested in what resources you promote. And by having it that way you don’t need to update your freebie if you found another affiliate resource to display on your resources page.

    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead!

      Thanks for the addition. I totally agree with you. We should use all the available means to drive traffic to the resource page. If your freebie gets a large readership, you are sure to your resources exposed to a large community too.

      Again, thanks for this addition. The weekend is great here 😉 Hope yours too is great

    Hi Enstine. Hi Harleena –

    I loved these tips and have plans to implement two of them soon on my own site. I also like the money making ideas you shared, I’m actually new to using wordpress…..I know that seems a bit wild but I was a weebly user for years. I have to say I really am enjoying using the new site and am learning more and more each day. This article came at a great time since I am newly developing my site to a fresh new look and have a whole new vision for the company’s success. Thanks for all your knowledge you shared Enstine.

    Have a great week ahead.

    Hi Enstine, Welcome back to Harleena’s place! Always great to see you here.

    What a brilliant post. I learned a lot, and you made me look at my blog in a new way. First, I completely agree with you about the Start here page. I used Adrienne’s idea about that and now my Start Here page is constantly one of my top hits every day.

    But I especially love your idea about your Tools page. Since i don’t blog about blogging, I never thought about being an affiliate marketer for blogging tools. But if we use the tools we obviously believe in them.

    Also, I often arrive at a blog post and admire the theme or wonder about a plugin. How awesome would it be if every blog had a Tools page? Great for the reader and the blogger!

    Thanks again, Entsine, for sharing your brilliant ideas with us here.

    Hey Enstine,

    I saw the title of your post and it certainly had my attention for the last couple of days. An informative post indeed. It makes sense to advertise some of the services I pay for.

    While I want to monetize my blog, I have other projects on the go at the moment. I’m still in the stage of building my community. Just a baby blogger, not been a year yet.

    I am eager to become an authority in my field. I did promise myself that I would thoroughly research the products I want on my blog. And try not to be influenced by people I get all my knowledge from in the blogging world. Like you said know you audience and you have a better chance of making money.

    At the moment I have Ad sense up but that is only because I had Ad sense while I was doing you tubes and when I first started blogging I wanted to be just like all the other bloggers. After reading a couple of posts I put up my Ad sense on my blog as it was advise.

    Thanks for the food for thought Enstine, I appreciate it.

    Rachel.

      Hi Rachel,
      Thanks for reading and taking time to say such details about your journey.

      It’s important at this level not to jump on any product. Given that you are laying your foundation, you have to be cautious, putting in more time towards trying to understand your audience.

      Adsense for a new blog may not be a good idea. Do you know that Adsense steals your traffic for cents?

      Hope to hear from you again

    Cool stuff. I never heard or thought of a comment page. I may have to include that to my blog. As for the monetization methods, there are so many but I got introduced to affiliate marketing first.
    I can’t wait to live off this business.
    Thanks for this article!

      Hey Pau,
      Thanks for the comment. Yeah try out that first commentator page idea. As long as you get first timers who comment, you’ll get impact on that page.

      hope to hear from you again buddy 😉

    Adrienne really has that newbie page down pat, right Enstine? Gotta greet newcomers with a smile and oodles of benefits to solidify that bond pronto. I like building bonds and sharing my eBooks and courses and services thru my blog. What better way for readers to express appreciation than by offering cash for our products and services? Solid tips dude!

      Hey buddy,
      Thanks for the comment 😉
      You have developed a wonderfully active community and I’m glad to be part of it. I also understand that your readers grab those ebooks because of the trust factor. Adding to that, they are affordable and value-filled

      Keep up the work man 😉

    Hi Harleena and Enstine! So good to see you over here again.

    I’ve been SO bad lately not having been by here in a bit but I wanted to be sure and check out this post. I had NO idea you used my blog as an example here Enstine so thank you for that. What a pleasant surprise.

    When I revamped my blog I made sure that I did change some of my pages and give my readers an opportunity to opt into my list through other pages then just opt-in boxes. I think it’s a great way to introduce them to more things you offer as well as giving them the opportunity to grab a free report if they chose too.

    I also have a resource page and while some people say you shouldn’t I have people asking me what I use so I prefer making it easy for them to see what I recommend and why.

    Love what you shared here and good to see you again as always. Thanks Harleena for having Enstine again because you know he cranks out quality content.

    I hope you both have a terrific week.

      Hey Adrienne,
      Good to see you around and thanks for your comment. It’s understood why you were not around earlier. Well, better late than never 😉

      I just had to use your page because it’s a good addition to the post so readers can check out and see practically what I’m talking about.

      Thanks for stopping here and throwing more light on what you’ve done. I’m sure many are learning from your light.

      I hope you are having a great week

    Hi Enstine and Harleena,

    So many great tips here – I’m not sure which ones to focus on now.

    That tip re the First Comment page is cool. I shall do that!

    Regarding the different ways to make money, all of them work, although I haven’t had any direct experience with selling PLR products.

    You also mentioned the capture leads strategy. If a blogger is getting traffic, it would be a crying shame not to try and capture people’s email address for future follow-up.

    As you say affiliate marketing can be a very profitable way to make money online and your ebook could be a good start for a budding affiliate marketer. I’ve done very well with affiliate marketing, so am well aware of the potential, even for newbies.

    Other than affiliate marketing my favorite way to generate income is to sell my products and services. For newbies with skills, they should consider offering consulting services, as a starting point.

    Thanks very much for your helpful and practical tips, Enstine

      Hi Kim,
      Thanks for your contribution on this post. You made a lot of beautiful points in this comments. Yes please go ahead and setup that page. It helps brings your new visitors closer to your business.

      Recently, I have had a lot of readers asking me to coach them on creating a popular blog. Though I have worked with some in the past, the demand recently has been overwhelming and most are ready to pay 😉

      I just closed deal with some and I’m up for some good business

      Thanks for making it to this post Kim and I pray you have a wonderful weekend

    Hi Enstine

    Good to see you here on Harleena’s blog as you been here earlier as well.

    Very profitable post indeed and I endorse your views regarding PLR products that still have huge market specially of those business who just want to start a blog on their website as field test to later on work on it formally.

    The points you mentioned to monetize pages are very helpful for those especially who want to expand their earning space with multiple options.

    Many thanks for sharing

    Have a super successful rest of the week.

      Hi Mi,
      Thanks for joining us on this party. I’m glad to be here again and I know I’ll still be coming again 😉

      You know I made my first $500 selling a PLR product I bought for $22.50. I’ll tell the full story on my blog in the days ahead.

      I think there still have a place in today’s content market 😉

      Do have a wonderful weekend bud

    Hi Enstine

    What a great post.

    Now I am surprised that that resource page can be easily made when I thought it was rocket science. You have listed great pages that have been ignored which can be easily monetised.

    I will like to ask Enstine. For a personal development niche blog, what kind of tools can be listed on the resource page?

    Thanks for sharing. Take Care

    If you wish to make money in your pajamas, that doesn’t mean you slap a few ads on your blog and you’re done.

    It’s true ad networks like adsense pay peanuts. (it’s much, much lower than $0.50 in second and third-world countries, if you know) That’s one reason I never even tried them. Why waste your time?

    When we myself hate ads on other blogs and websites, should we even think of putting them and troubling other people?

    Sure, popup a few ads as soon as I come to your blog and I’ll say bye bye to your blog forever.

    Ads are like kicking your visitors goodbye, the moment they get inside the door.

    On occasions I like to read a post, published on a blog that has ads, I just use Evernote’s Clearly browser extension with a single click. Poof! All ads gone and instant, distraction-free reading. Cool, isn’t it?

    I agree, blog networks, just like social sharing networks, slow down your blog.

    I love creating info products like e-books and courses. Some people earn far higher with affiliates, than even in a year of displaying ads.

    Thanks for the helpful post, I’ll point my friends here when/if I see ads on their sites/blogs.

    Hi Enstine and Harleena,

    Oh dear – been away far too long and I missed this really useful post about monetizing blog pages. But better late than never.

    I already have a tools page and a first comment page (I think LOL). But you have reminded me that they are woefully out-of date, so time to give them a good overhaul.

    I hadn’t thought of a Start Here page. Need to give that one a bit more thought, because stupidly enough it’s something I will often look for on a website. Hmmm.

    Thanks for yet more valuable ideas on monetizing my blog.
