Are you interested in earning actual money with your blog? I’m not talking about making pennies through spammy looking ad sales either, but actual hard cash that you can use to turn a great profit on your website. If you run a website that gains quite a bit of organic traffic, blogging can actually be a fairly locative business that earns you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a month.
Here are a few methods you can make solid income on your blog.
Paid Guest Posting
Paid guest posting has become a big marketing tactic lately for businesses who are trying to get an edge over their competition with better search engine optimization. As a result, they’re willing to pay for a hefty price to write a guest post and insert a link on your website. These prices can range from about $50 to $200 per post.
If you feel uncomfortable about people writing posts for your blog that are not high enough quality, there’s no worry. You can write the blog post yourself and naturally insert the related link into the article.
Affiliate sales are a little harder to make money at, but they work as well, especially if you have a lot of site traffic. If you run a travel site for instance and you love a certain product, let’s say a backpack or even a travel credit card, you can promote that product on your site. As long as you love this product and write about it naturally, it won’t appear spammy to website viewers.
Once you share the product link and have an affiliate agreement, every sale you make of that backpack or travel card, earns you a commission. Many top and medium level bloggers use this to make site income.
Freelancing is a fun and exciting way to get paid to blog as well and even though those blog posts are published on other websites, you can still e-mail them to your reader base. Freelancing is a great way to make an extra income when you’re still working on getting your blog established. For instance, if you’re a car accident lawyer, you can find work writing articles about law and your experiences with it and get paid.
If you’re desiring to bring in some more money to help support your blog and turn a profit at the same time, then here are a few methods you can start using today.
