You can make money with your blog if you really want. Yes you heard me very well! I am not exaggerating, because I know it is very much possible. Setting up a blog these days is so easy; because anybody can set up a blog on virtually any topic. It is not setting up one that is the problem, but how to make money with your blog.
The reason the type of blog you set up really matters is because it is the sole factor that would eventually determine how much you make in the long run. One can do blogging on niches like health, sports, web design, fitness, beauty, bloggingtips, relationship, etc. but these niches won’t make you equal amount of money online. It therefore means you have to be selective of the type of niche to promote. Forget about the hypes you hear about making money with virtually anything.
For instance, if you choose to go into bloggingtips, be rest assured that the higher percentage of people that would be attracted to your site are bloggers. Most of the times, it is the newbie bloggers that would dominate your traffic because the probloggers are already made, and may hardly come to get tips or advice from you, let alone buying your products.
What are the characteristics of newbie bloggers? They are new to the system, with little or no money to spend. They are not yet sure what the blogging future holds for them; so they are cautious when it comes to spending. They are mainly after freebies. They go after all sorts of free downloads and free courses.
How do you make money with your blog then?
In order to make money with your blog, you need to be wise and look for the right niche with the people who have the mentality of a buyer. Some niches would keep adding passive income to your pocket even while you are asleep. I mean it!
I am not trying to give you false hope like some persons would do. After all, I am not offering you any products; so I have the liberty to tell you what is in my mind without fear of contradiction. So where should you go?
1. Web design:
Yes you heard me clearly; you are not hallucinating. The money is right there to be made. From my experience as a writer, I have come to realize that bloggers who have the experience of web design are making a kill online. Just go to any site that offers paid-to-write services and see the set of people that are paid the highest fee to write tutorials. They are web designers. While the ordinary bloggers (on blogging, make money, sports, etc) are receiving $3-$20 per article, the web designers are receiving from $50-$200 per article. While don’t you focus on this niche and make pure gold from here?
You don’t know how to design?
You can still set up your business around here and get professional hands from places like fiverr.com, tenbux.com, dollar3.com, easyoutsource.com (with Philippinos) to do the job for you. In this case, you get the contracts at a higher rate and pay peanuts to get them done and you end up making good profit. Better still, you need to learn web design yourself. A lot of people are waiting out there to hire you to design their business websites and blogs.
Do you know that it is not the outer beauty that makes a website tick?
It is the quality of coding or programming that drives a website. The script upon which the website is run is the engine power or hub of that site. This is the reason why, like the web designers, coders and programmers are earning fat with their blogs and websites online. So building your blog in the area that delivers coding or programming services would make you an internet millionaire in no distant time.
Here I come again! Yes, it would make you real money without sweat.
3. Content marketing:
Content marketing is another niche that would help you make money with your blog easily. There are bloggers and writers everywhere; but quality bloggers and writers are scarce. Business owners are willing to pay a fortune to get the services of quality content writers.
This is the reason you see some of them charge as much as $200 per article. They really don’t look for customers, but customers scramble to get their services. So be a content writer and earn cool cash. Make sure to develop yourself before delving into this niche so that competition would not get you frustrated.
4. Special Courses:
Use your blog to organize a special course that should be subscribed for. All subscribers have to pay either monthly or yearly. Make sure to deliver quality materials to your students to ensure they keep renewing their subscription. So long as their subscriptions are renewed, money would always be in your pocket. You can teach them content marketing, blogging, freelancing, e-book writing, web design and programming, etc.
5. Affiliate marketing:
Affiliate marketing is another sure way to make money with your blog as a blogger. All you need do is research and get the best affiliate programmes related to your niche. You can get profitable materials to promote on Clickbank, Commission Junction, Avangate, Linkshare, Shareit, etc.
Products you can easily promote include WordPress themes and plugins, Antivirus software, Autoresponder software, website hosting, etc. Each time a transaction takes place you are paid a commission. Some of the products attract rebilling, ensuring you keep making money round the clock.
6. Blog flipping:
You don’t know what to sell? Why not build several blogs, add quality contents to them and promote them vigorously. When such blogs become popular, take them to Flippa and sell for good profit. A lot of webmasters are making several thousands of dollars doing domain flipping.
To get an idea how much you can possibly make, check the list of just sold websites on flippa. The first time I saw it, my head spun; there and then I made up my mind to work harder on my sites.
Do you know that a lot of people are looking for quality information on every subject you can think of online? Recently I read of a lady whose article on how to wash a washing machine attracted about half a million views on pinterest alone.
What do you think was responsible for the views? People are simply looking for information on how to wash a washing machine. What if she had that in an e-book and was selling each copy for just $10, how much do you think she would be making by now? Even as virtually everyone online is looking for one form of information or the other, there is dearth of quality writers who can comfortably put these information down in an article or e-book. You can take advantage of this opportunity.
8. Job listing:
The current economic downturn has brought about an astronomical increase in the number of unemployed youths worldwide. Opening a blog that has a job board and place to submit CVs could be a place to make money too.
You can even make it a membership site where subscribers have first hard information about recent job listings. Employers can also pay to place their vacancy on the site. In this case, you make money from both sides.
9. Domain parking:
You can also make money with your blog by doing domain parking. Making money with domain parking simply involves using your redundant domain to make money while you are not yet prepared to build your blog. You share the revenue with the company that provides the domain parking services.
So if you have a domain name you have registered and for some reasons you cannot start up the blog, why not park the domain and use it to make money instead of keeping the name to waste away?
10. Domain reseller:
This is another sure way to make money with your blog. Simply buy a reseller package from a reliable hosting company like hostgator, namecheap, godaddy, bluehost, etc and sell at your own price to people who want to host their site. It is a way of generating a steady stream of income online. Every website owner must keep paying for web hosting so long as he wants his site to be up. So every time they renew their hosting, you get a profit.
Do you want to make money really?
The only way this information would be useful to you is for you to take action after reading this article today. Of the 10 points listed above, think of what you can possibly do to get a steady way of making cool money into your pocket on a regular basis without having to work your ass up.
Blogging still remains a very good source of passive income online. The amount you make depends on the quality of information you have and the degree of hunger you have to break out of poverty. If your hunger is strong enough, I see you make money with your blog this year and the upcoming years. Stay cool pals.
