How to Make Money Blogging

Okay, we all get it. Even though you have a strong passion for writing, you didn’t just start a blog for nothing. You want to turn that passion into cash, and today, I’m going to highlight exactly how to do that.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional, and only use freelance writing part of the time. This is not a tutorial for getting a steady income, but instead, some cash on the side.

There are several ways to do this. One way is affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is not something to invest in, unless your blog is super-popular. Basically, companies will pay you when someone clicks your special link (epc), and you will receive part commission if they order something. I find that companies that already have an established program for influencers are less open to unsolicitized offers, so if you are looking to pitch an idea, stray away from these kinds of companies, because they will most likely not be interested.

You can also guest blog. Guest blogging is super common, and it is an easy way to get some attention towards your own blog, unless it’s ghost writing, and earn some extra cash. Besides, you can use those guest blog posts as personal displays of achievements as you move on to approach more established publications. Guest blog around your niche because this will direct the right kind of audience towards your blog.

Another way to make some money is to write sponsored blog posts. Their is a ton of agencies that allow you to see campaigns that you can apply for that will make you some extra cash. Please only apply for campaigns that fit within your niche.

There are many other ways to make money, but these are just a few to get you started. Hopefully this article helped you in some way.

Thanks for reading! Till’ next time!
