Start a Blog! 4 Ways You Can Earn Money By Blogging
Did you know that people are making 6 figure incomes from blogging? Here are 5 ways that you can earn a profit from blogging…
This article may contain affiliate links. That means that if you choose to make a purchase off of my recommendation, I will receive a small commission. Thank you for supporting my small business. I couldn’t do it without all of you wonderful ladies.
1. Affiliates – What is that? I was a marketing major in college but didn’t know exactly what this was until about a year ago (embarrassing right?)
Let me break it down for you. Let’s say you write a blog about caring for babies and you want to write a post about the best cloth diapers. You can include affiliate links to your favorite cloth diapers in your post. If someone makes a purchase after clicking on your link, then you will earn a commission from your recommendation.
To sign up to become an affiliate you can scroll down to the bottom of the companies page and find a link that will take you to the information you will need to provide in order to become an affiliate. (You can also Google search the company that you are interested in becoming an affiliate for and add “affiliate” at the end.)
Amazon is a great one to start out with because they sell everything under the sun. I highly recommend looking at videos on YouTube as you begin to tap into the world of affiliates.
2. Advertising – You can add ads to your website as well. You are probably familiar with ads popping up as you are surfing the internet. If you choose this route, be cautious not to distract or annoy your readers. It totally turns me off to have to search through the ads to get to the actual content of the post. Googe Adsense is something to explore.
3. Selling Products or Services – This one is pretty self explanatory. You can sell an ebook or course you created. You can sell crafts or any products that you have. People love information and are much more willing to purchase from someone that they know (you the blogger) because you’ve been providing them with free information that solves their problems.
4. Sponsored Posts – If you create a blog post for a sponsor (a company) about a product or service and publish it on your own site, your sponsor will pay you. You are participating in their marketing (hence why you get paid). Check out Blogher.com.
If you are interested in blogging I HIGHLY Recommend the Blog By Number course and eBook from Suzi Whitford. She is a stay at home mom that has made up to $20,000 per MONTH from her blog.
