Looking to make some extra money while you’re blogging? Well, have no fear! I’m here to tell you some surefire ways to get some bank while you write.
Keeping fresh content on your blog
This is really important because you never know when a like minded person or someone will randomly find your blog. I’ve actually been asked to write guest posts or host a paid guest blog on my site just because someone randomly found me through the search engine. Google loves fresh content, so chances are the more great content you post, the more relevant you become. This definitely represents well when it comes to cater to the people which turns into more traffic to your site. With this in your power, you’ll learn how to dictate what rates are most effective.
Whether you write sponsored posts or you host them on your blog, it’s all a great way of getting paid. A lot of times, if you cater to a specific niche, you’ll get paid more because you capture an audience. For example, let’s say you have a channel that promotes a specific thing such as cocktail recipes or foods. If you have an audience then it’s a lot easier to capture that niche. A lot of times you’ll get paid to promote their product. A lot of the time, you’ll get some free samples to help widen their audience and create some really good brand awareness. It’s really a win, win.
Hooking up with bigger brands or specific places that need content writers is an excellent way to start. If you are willing to put in some time and effort, you can really make tons of money just by being a content writer. In my next post, I will teach you how to search different places to apply for a content writer position. The benefits of being a freelance writer is working on your own time, being in the comfort of your own home or even being away from your home and still doing work. Depending on your level of competency and the authority your provide, you can charge higher rates. Also, this benefits your own blog because you know more about what type of material people want.
Let’s take food recipes and cocktail recipes again. Food and spirits go hand and hand, right? Yes. now imagine you have a site where you are posting a specific recipe. You can get a company that has an alcoholic beverage that promotes a good drink boding well with your own recipes. You can do a product placement where you have an original recipe and the only way it’s complete is if you use a specific wine and you can promote that as an affiliate or a even a sponsored ad space. Whether it’s a text link or in your actual blog post, it’s an excellent way of not only getting paid but creating authority links. You generate income and traffic in one go!
These are just a few ways to really develop income through your blog. Next post will detail how to get blogging gigs! Enjoy!
