How to make Money Blogging
Now days sponsorships are huge when it comes to blogging or influencers, and especially on Instagram. Basically, a sponsorship post can start off around $200 and depending on your following can go well above $5000, just for one post mind you.
So what do I mean by this? This is a sponsored blog post, where you write about something and get paid for it.
2. Affiliate Links
This is the big daddy for me. Affiliate marketing is awesome! I absolutely love it. I think the reason I love it the most is I get to choose whatever I want to promote. With that, it doesn’t come off as “salesy”. It is very passive and not at all in your face like ‘I AM TRYING TO GET YOU TO BUY SOMETHING’ kind of way.
For me, this is my main route when it comes to my blog and Youtube channel. I only promote the products that I love via people that I trust. Win Win Win.
3. Product Sales
You can sell your own stuff on your website! That is another thing that I do via this website. I have
Now, the sky is the limit here. You can sell online courses, e-books, physical products, digital products. The sky is the limit!
Advertising is a huge way that quite large blogs make money. There is a ton of Ad space one your website. There is the header, the footer, the sidebar….
For me, I don’t offer Ad space at this time. I have too much I want to share with you guys that I end up taking up all the space.
This; however, is a really good way to start off making quick money rather than waiting for your affiliate links to kick in. Most places won’t spend too much if you do not have a large following; however, its a good start and once you start growing just imagine…
You can offer your services via your blog. So think about what it is you blog about, what you are good at, and what service you would like to provide.
I offer my Portrait Photography Services, Product Photography Services, One on One Mentorships, Workshops, and more.
Here are some more ideas:
Editing and Proofreading
Photography and Videography
Social Medial Management
Coaching or consulting
The list goes on and on and on!
Seriously though, blogging is pretty darn awesome and has so much dang potential. It really depends on how much effort you put into it! It gives you huge flexibility with your lifestyle. It can be a full time job, a side hustle, and really whatever you want to make it!
