So you want to know the secret? How bloggers make money online, it seems all very elusive to you right now? Maybe you're a beginner and you want to get started in the world blogging but you don't know where to start or how it's profitable. Well I'm going to let you in on the few different ways that bloggers make money and I'll let you know about the business model that I stumbled upon accident while building my own blog. I studied it for years now and really learned about the tips and tricks for blogging and earning money from it and also earning money from blogging & vlogging. I'll give down low on it all. Do you know I'm serious? This is a big business for the future and the reason why I'm so passionate about teaching the secret to you is because I really believe that more people will be able to become location dependent in the future. The wave of digital nomad and the at home solo entrepreneur has boomed these past few years. I believe it’s because people are waking up and really understanding how technology can make them money. Everyone is jumping on the digital wave and if you're smart you jump on that digital wave too. So these are the top tips and tricks of how to make money from your blog.
Sponsored ads one of the biggest and most known ways that bloggers earn money. Basically this is when you contact a company or a company contact you and they send you a product or a service to promote on your platform in exchange for money they do this because they want to leverage your follower count. Sponsored ads works in the way that you give them exposure so more people know about their Brand and also you give them sometimes sales with a special discount code that they might provide for you. it's very simple to do this all you have to do is make sure you have at least 1000 followers on one platform I know it sounds difficult but it's not as hard as it sounds once you have 1000 followers you can start monetizing. this could be in the form of a 1000 Instagram followers or 1000 YouTube subscribers or 1000 on your email list. I'm sure you understand what I'm trying to tell you. company interested in using influencer marketing because followers and viewers trust influencers more than the typical advert and adverts are not being effective as influences. Also don't think just because you've got a small following and you haven't got thousands or millions of followers doesn't mean you can't monetize from your audience. Monetizing from you audience it's very easy because companies are now turning to micro-influencers. The micro influencers are people who have a small following of a 1000+ but they can have more of an impact as there audience is more engaged. just because you've got millions and thousands of followers does that mean that they are always engaged with you the companies are still interested in working with the smaller blogs and YouTubers because they understand this. So don't be afraid to pitch yourself to a company tell them your stats and what you can offer maybe you've got really great presentational skills or really high edited images that they could use on their website as well a lot of companies will be happy to pay you for your services. The easiest way is for you to create a media kit so that you can have it ready for when a company approaches you or when you want to approach a company and pitch yourself. If you don't know how to create a media kit yet don't worry I'm going to have a detailed post up and a video.
Another famous way to earn money through blogging is affiliate marketing I'm sure you've heard many different gurus praise this method. Basically it works in a way that you promote a brand products on your blog for example if you had a fashion post and your wearing a jacket you could put an affiliate link in your blog post every time someone clicks on that link and buys that jacket that you're wearing you would earn a small commission. From each person who purchases from your affiliate links and if you've got thousands of people visiting your site you potentially could learn quite a lot from affiliate marketing. But I always say that this way is not the best way personally, because firstly if your a small blogger you're not going to make a lot of money this way as he won't have enough people visiting your website to get the commissions. The second reason is if you are a big enough blogger to you learn a good amount doing affiliate marketing Sorry to break it to you but you're wasting your time selling someone else's products when you could be selling your own products. If you're big enough to sell other people's products then you should be focusing that time and energy into promoting your own brand and sell something of your own, think big!
The next way to earn money from your blog I like to call it the new age way not the old way not the hard way but the new way. This way you should make your own products to sell. If you've got a big presence online you can start selling your own products like print on demand fashion, E-books, digital downloads, start an etsy shop selling your art if your crafty sell them as digital prints and other digital services.
If you're looking for a get rich quick schemes in this isn't it. It takes hard work but if your willing you can make it work!!!
