Many of us make the mistake of thinking that making money from blogging is almost impossible. Unless, of course, you’re a big blogger with a zillion followers, that is. However, that’s not actually, the case.
Believe it or not, making money from your blog – as long as you offer good quality content, is much easier than you would think.Of course, that being said, don’t expect to make mega money from your blog.
While you most probably can’t survive off your blog earnings alone, they can make a nice bonus for your hard work and perseverance. The great thing about earning from your blog is that there are so many options to choose from. So if one doesn’t work for you, you have plenty of others to choose from.
To help you start earning from your blog, here are a few ways that you can easily make a little money. It might not be hundreds, but it’s a start, and that’s what’s important.
You can post sponsored content
If your blog is well designed, and gets a few thousand visitors per month, one of the best ways to earn from it is with sponsored content. If you want to ensure that your site is good for earning from, when it comes to creating a blog, you need to make sure that it’s well designed. There are two types of sponsored post that helps you to earn. These are posts written by a company that you then post, and content created for a corporation, by you. Depending on how many followers your blog has and who the company is, you can earn anything from a few pounds to hundreds per post.
In most cases, the company will contact you to ask what you charge. Don’t just randomly select a price, think carefully about how much your time is worth. While you may only be posting a pre-written post, the chances are it will need editing, etc. So don’t undercharge for the use of your blog, choose a price that you’re happy with. It’s also important to check that you will have full rights to the content and can make any edits that you deem necessary.
You can use your blog to advertise for various brands
Another simple way to make money from your blog is selling your advertising space to brands. You can do this by joining an advertising scheme or by going directly to the brands themselves. However, if your blog isn’t massively popular, it’s best to join a scheme and gain advertising via that. As often, brands tend to look for bigger blogs, as the amount of clicks they’ll get will be higher.
If you’re going to go through an advertising scheme, join Google AdSense, as it’s one of the easiest projects to earn from. This is a great scheme to be a part of as you’ll have a choice of a range of pay-per-click advertisements. You’ll also be offered the chance to incorporate video advertising into your blog, to boost your earnings.
You can write reviews and earn
One of the easiest ways to earn from your blog is by writing reviews and charging for them. You can advertise your own services for this, or you can join a reviewing site and get linked up to companies in need of reviews. As well as getting paid for your reviews, in most cases you’ll also get to keep the product you’re reviewing. You can then choose to keep the item or to sell it on to boost your profits even more.
If you’re going to earn by reviewing products, just make sure to do so safely. Unless you’re sure who a company is, never give out your personal address. Instead, give them the details for your local post office, and arrange to pick up the product from there.
So there you have it, all the easiest ways to make money from your blog.
