For some people, blogging can just be a hobby. Something to do in their spare time, when they’re bored. But did you know you could actually be making money from your blog? Imagine that! Being able to earn money through one of your hobbies, perfect right? Here are a few ways you can make money from your website:
A popular way for bloggers to make money is through product reviews or promotion. This is where a company pays you a fee to either review their product or promote it. It can be an easy method to get money from your blog. Plus, you get the product for free! The only drawback with this is that you may get products that are rubbish. It’s up to you whether you want to promote a product that’s poor quality. Ideally, you should only affiliate yourself with companies that are trustworthy and make good products. That way you won’t be lying to your audience. Of course, you can promote dodgy products if you really want the money. Just don’t expect your audience to be happy!
You can sell >advertising space to other companies, on your page. This method is simple, and could see you make most of your money. There are a couple of ways to go about it; you can search for willing advertisers yourself. Or you can look for a company who will find advertisers for you, but take a cut of your ad earnings. Usually, you will get paid extra depending on how many times an ad is clicked on. In this case, you’ll need to make sure your site is marketed well and has good SEO. If your site has bad SEO, then you won’t maximise viewing potential through search engines. Improving on this is key, so you’ll either need to analyse and improve your site by yourself. Or look for a company like No Rank No Pay, who can help in improving your search rank. The more people you can get viewing your website, the more chances they’ll click on an ad.
One of the easiest ways to make money anywhere, sell things. You can create content/products and sell them on your blog in a ‘store’ section. A common form of sellable content is Ebooks. Write an Ebook and sell it on your blog. You should make it about a specialised subject, that’s relevant to your blog. Also, creating and selling T-shirts, and other clothing, is a popular way to earn money from your site. There are many tools out there to help create a cool looking t-shirt. Make something cool and quirky that is unique
You can use all this advice to help you make money from your blog. But you need followers and people who regularly come to your site. Which is why you must market your site as well as you can. As I mentioned, SEO is key to getting visitors, but also look at social media marketing as a way to gain an audience. Once your audience is in place, you can start to earn some serious cash.
