A lot of people are working 2 or 3 jobs just to make ends meet and the truth is, it just doesn’t seem enough. If you were one of the many people with this dilemma, would you believe it if I told you that you could make money from blogging?
Believe it or not, you can actually earn money from blogging and all you have to do is sit in front of your computer for a couple of hours and write articles. Blogs are not just for angst-ridden teenagers anymore; look at Perez Hilton or Arianna Huffington. They are earning millions of dollars every year just because of their blogs. If they can do it, why can’t you?
Do the math
Let’s take a look at a couple of ways that you can make money from blogging; affiliate marketing and paid posts. Before you decide to jump the gun, I am going to be upfront and say that you can’t earn millions of dollars overnight, but you can earn a steady income if you put in enough work.
1.) Affiliate marketing is all about selling and earning commissions from other people’s products for each product sold or lead generated. Now, supposing you started a health blog and you are selling health-related affiliate products. What if a product you’re selling costs $20 and the commission you earn is at $10?
If you can sell two products a day, you already earned $20! If you can keep that up for 30 days, you’ll have close to $600 in earnings FOR ONE PRODUCT. If your blog can sell different products at any given day, you can earn thousands of dollars every month or week.
2.) Paid posts offer relatively low rates and it only takes a little amount of work. On average, a 300 word article would cost around $3 to $5 each. Let’s say you can write 3 300 word articles every day and you have 20 articles due; you can make close to $100 in 6 to 7 days. In a month, you’ll probably earn $400 a month if you have enough projects and if the rates are high enough.Perfect methods on earning from blogging
Aside from the 2 techniques mentioned above, there are other ways for you to make money from blogging:
3.) PPC or Pay per Click advertising is a good strategy for blogging. Advertisers will buy a spot on PPC sites like Google AdSense and post their links onto your website if it’s relevant to their customers. If your readers click on the link, PPC sites will pay you; most ads would run for $.50 per click while there are those that can cost more than $10.
4.) Product reviews are similar to paid posts, except you’ll be writing reviews on products from your advertisers. Your advertisers will provide samples or free units just so you can write something about it. It may not cost a lot of money, but if you run a tech blog, imagine the gadgets that you’ll be getting for free. Now that’s a real money saver.
It is possible
It’s not impossible to make money from blogging; you can earn thousands of dollars every month just by sitting in front of your PC for a couple of hours. If you put in the hard work and dedication, you can generate a steady income, open new opportunities in affiliate marketing and paid posts and even better targeted traffic
