Making Money as a Blogger – How to Start Earning!

Dec 11, 2018 | Blogging

Making money as a blogger or influencer is so much more commonplace these days.

It’s a great opportunity for mums to work from home, have more time with their families and more freedom in their life.

With the upturn in dedicated influencer agencies and the ever more present #ad or #spon sighted on Instagram, it’s easy to see that the opportunities for bloggers to be paid is on the up.

But where should a new, or seasoned, blogger start when it comes to monetising your blog?

Here are four ways you can make money from blogging:

4 Ways to Monetise your Blog

 

1. Sell Sponsored Posts

The majority of those making money from blogging are selling sponsored posts.

In conjunction with a brand, or agency, the blogger will write an article that in some way features a brand, product or service.

In exchange for this, the blogger earns a fee which might include them promoting the article to their social followers and subscribers.

Bloggers with small or large audiences can be commissioned for sponsored work. Size of audience is often not a factor, but an engaged audience of raving fans is essential.

The brand is parting with their cash with a clear objective in mind – to grow their business, increase their brand awareness and increase sales.

 

2. Write for other websites

Bloggers can make side cash, or even a full-time living, by writing for other sites.

This might include industry-specific sites, brands’ website or even other bloggers’ blogs.

The bonus of writing for other websites, apart from your fee, is that you will often be given a backlink to your blog and it’s a great opportunity for you to get you, your expertise and your blog in front of a new audience.

3. Consult for others

Your blog – your corner of the internet – can be your online resume.

You can use this space as a place to shout about your achievements, skills and the services that you can offer someone else.

These days, many businesses can lack the social and digital media skill sets that bloggers have honed for years.

So, whether you’re a Facebook pro, a whizz at graphic design or an Excel genius, someone out there probably wants to hire you.

You can work from the comfort of your own home, building up a portfolio of clients and a steady income.

 

4. Selling online products

Is there a book in you? What about an eBook?

Could you use your expertise in a specific subject to design an online course so that you can teach the subject to others?

Can you take amazing photographs to sell to the masses as stock images?

The list of products you can sell online is endless these days.

Digital products can bring you passive income for many years to come, with only the occasional update required.
