Here are some of the best methods out there to make money with your blog, without worrying about an ugly looking site.
A lot of bloggers discuss products they love and use without ever earning a dime off of it and there’s definitely some cash to be made. This is how some of the biggest names in blogging make their six-figure incomes. If you often write about products that help your life, then you can create an affiliate relationship with that company.
For instance, if you are a lifestyle blogger and you’re writing about improving sleep using a sleep system. You can post a link to that system in a blog post like you normally would, but this time include an affiliate link, and if one of your readers decides to purchase one you gain a commission. This is one of the best practices to use for your site to make easy cash.
Link-sales via Guest Posting
As a blogger you probably constantly get solicited for guest posts, but did you know they can pay? Many blogs and websites sell guest posting space on their sites for between $50 and $200 depending on the amount of organic site traffic they have. You’re in complete control of what’s posted too.
You can make sure the company is posting an article about something that’s related to your niche and that it’s high quality. You can even publish these under a “Sponsored Guest Post” section for full transparency with your readers. Your readers understand you need to make money to support your blog and this is an easy way to do so.
Create an Online Class
If you’d like to put in a little extra effort and want to make your blog a legitimate business, you can develop an online class. For instance, Professional Exam Tutoring is a great example of a online business that thrives using educational tools for students.
Check out the other bloggers who are doing this and see what prices they set and the kinds of materials they provide to their online students. This can be a lucrative way to make consistent and passive income monthly.
Write an eBook
A little less time consuming, writing e-books is a great method to make some extra cash and flex your writing muscles. E-books typically are not too lengthy and are easy to write as the formats have a lot of space between the lines. Even if you’ve never written one before, they typically don’t take too much writing know-how to create one that sells.
An e-book is also a great way to engage with your readers more. You have an opportunity to share more about who you are as a person so readers can get to know you more. It’s a win-win.
Freelance For Other Sites
If gaining revenue directly on your site doesn’t seem too appealing, then you can always freelance. Using online websites for freelance jobs, you can easily find writing work no matter your niche. The writing work can pay incredibly well depending on who your clients are, making this a good way to use your skills and live your hobby while pulling in a cozy side income.
In today’s world of blogging, more and more money making opportunities arise for you to take advantage of. If you’d like to finally start making money with the blog you’ve been running forever, here are some great strategies for you to use to pad your wallet.
