How Your Blog Can Lead to a Full-Time Income

8:08 PM

A blog might start out as a little bit of fun, but stick with it long enough, and you’ll see that it’s much more than just a place to put down your thoughts and feelings; it’s also a potential source of some much-needed cash. Of course, it’s not wise to set up a blog with the expectation of receiving a salary, but if you work hard, make the most of opportunities, and get a stroke of luck, you might be surprised where it leads.

Pointing Towards Your Business
If you’ve got a blog that’s drawing in thousands of people each week, then you’ve got plenty of sitting ducks that could be the source of income. You don’t have to do this an overly shady way; all it takes is a link at the top that says ‘shop.’ From the content of your posts, you’ll already know what type of things your readers are interested in; why not sell related products on your website, and make some money on the side? You don’t even necessarily need to have the goods in storage - instead, take a look at dropshipping, the inexpensive way to open up a new business.

Working with Others
If you run a popular blog, then you’ve already proven that you have a way with words. So why not branch out, and see what another type of writing you could do? You might need to take a business writing course to develop your different writing voices, but once you have the experience, you’ll find that there is plenty of writing work available and that it’s more than possible to bring in a full-time income just from writing for other websites. And what’s more - you’ll already have your portfolio ready to show prospective clients: it’s your blog.

Delivering Valuable Content

It might seem like everybody wants something for free, but this isn’t the case. For quality content, there are always people willing to pay. If you’re consistently outputting high-quality content that is having a positive impact on people’s lives, then you might just be able to make money from it. There are two ways of doing this. The first is to have a donate button on the site. The second is to have a ‘subscribers only’ section on your site, which is reserved for paying members.

Advertising and other Revenues
Of course, let’s not forget about the tried and tested way of making money, the method that absolutely anyone can do: advertising. Whether it’s a banner ad, sponsored post, or affiliate marketing, these methods are a great way - not to mention the easiest way - to monetize your website. The bigger your readership becomes, the more money you’ll make.

Using Your Knowledge to Help Others
Finally, if you’ve built a successful blog, then you’ll know a lot about blogging and marketing! So why not put your knowledge to good use and become a consultant? You’ll be helping others to develop their website and online presence and be bringing in some cash, too.
