Are you looking for a few more ways in which to earn a little extra income with your blog? Truth be told, it can be done, but it does take time to build an income from blogging.
You don’t need a huge audience to get started, however, no true success happens overnight – blogging takes time. Remember blogging is not a sprint it’s a marathon that takes time.
During this episode of Blog Your Way to a Business Profit Podcast I talk about more ways to make money with your blog.
# 1 Offer Coaching or Consulting Services
If you’re looking for a way to start making money within the shortest period of time, become a coach. Giving prospects and clients direct access to products and expertise that you are good at.
So how can you use your blog to promote your coaching services business?
First and foremost, create useful and interesting content on subjects that matter to those clients and prospects that you are seeking. Make sure you are writing about topics that will attract new clients.
When offering coaching services, you need a strong reason “why” people should prefer your services as opposed to your competitors, especially in today’s environment.
No matter what industry you’re in or who your target market audience is, offering a coaching service to motivated clients can help them reach their goals and also make you some money.
# 2 – Become a Freelance Blogger/Writer
If you’re a blogger, then you already have the skills to become an on-demand freelance blogger. Brands are desperately looking for bloggers with writing skills, and becoming a freelance blogger can increase your financial life.
Advertise with local businesses or online sites such as Indeed.com, Fiverr.com, Upwork.com
A freelance writer is a professional who writes articles on different topics for websites, emails, landing pages and most B2B and B2C companies understand that blog content is a great tool for attracting leads and engaging with their loyal audience.
# 3 – Create and Sell Online Courses
Another profitable way to monetize a blog that generates few visitors per day is to create and sell online courses. You don’t need a lot of customers to make money with your first online course.
If your blog receives at least 50 visitors per day, create a CTA or call to action, find out exactly what those visitors want and create a course from there. Believe it or not, people like buying online courses, even when they can find the same information for free on Google or at YouTube University.
Your online courses should be focused on a specific subject or topic, organized and ready to be put into action. Oh, and don’t be afraid to create an online course on a topic that’s already out there, everyone can put their own spin on information. Don’t get caught up in the imposter syndrome!
# 4 – Write and make money from Books, including eBooks
Have you ever heard the term “blog to book” – that’s one of the options that I chose with my Basic Blogging Tips for Beginners Book. I turned my 4 part series of teaching building a basic blog into a book which is self published and available for purchase on my blog, delblogger.com or using this link https://bit.ly/33A35xs
eBooks on Kindle – If however, you prefer writing short ebooks, well, people are doing just that with Amazon Kindle publishing. The great thing about making money from Kindle books is that there are already millions of buyers who are ready to buy from Amazon.
Amazon is a trusted online shopping site, and there are millions of readers out there looking to download more books and resource guides.
#5 – Speaking Engagements /Webinars/Workshops
This is yet another great way in which to get more exposure for you and your blog. Speaking engagements, conducting webinars and training sessions at local libraries will help to build your brand as that is how I got my start which turned into paid workshops and presentations pre-covid.
Check out your local Community Colleges, Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Clubs and other local community centers to offer your services where you will be able to share your knowledge and expertise of which you blog about and gain more exposure in your field.
