Whether blogging is your chosen profession or just a way to pass the time, making some extra money from your website is never a bad idea. Reseller hosting packages, sponsored posts and the other tips in this article will allow you to make an income from your blog with ease.
In the digital age, blogging has become a big deal, to say the least. What started out as a way to keep an online journal is now one of the most popular creative platforms of the modern era. As a blogger, you will have invested some money — to cover web hosting fees and other important costs — and plenty of time into your site. So with that in mind, why not get a financial return on your investment?
Although it will take time and lots of content, it doesn’t mean you can’t profit in the meantime. The following will demonstrate four of the simple ways you can make money from your blog.
1. Sell a Service
The internet and modern technology have become essential resources from an educational and business standpoint. This has not only given the current generation a variety of tech and web-based skill sets but it’s also made the digital age a breeding ground for freelancers. If you’re a freelancer with a skill set that your audience might be able to make use of, what better way to advertise your services than your blog?
Everybody knows that a website is essential for business success — and the world of freelancing is no different. Setting aside one page on your blog is more than enough space to advertise your service. Writing content that focuses on your skillset will show your audience that you also have an in-depth knowledge of the subject.
2. Sponsored Posts
You would have to live underneath a rock to be unaware of how popular blogging has become. Businesses are aware of how influential blogs are nowadays, realising the importance of having their own blog and how sponsored content is an excellent way to establish their brand further.
As a blogger, this is something you can use to your advantage and an easy way for you to make some extra cash. It becomes even easier if the content is pre-written, leaving you with the simple task of uploading it to your blog. Approaching companies that suit the style and niche of your blog will give you a better chance of success.
3. Reseller Hosting
By now you will be aware of website hosting; the service that provides you with the disk space, bandwidth and domain name to run a professional blog. Another service that high-quality web hosting companies provide is reseller hosting. In short, this allows you to set up a reseller hosting business, becoming the middleman between the web hosting company and what are now your own customers.
If you’re beginning to think this all sounds very technical and something you’d struggle to undertake, there’s no need to worry. Visit this article about reseller hosting to find out why you should not worry. In reality, it’s a simple way to make money. Your role will be to sell the web hosting services of a company, meaning that all the technical aspects, such as maintenance, won’t be your responsibility. Much of your audience will be bloggers themselves. Bloggers require web hosting, so the service pretty much sells itself.
4. Advertising Space
When designing your blog — and likely spending way too much time choosing the perfect theme — you will have noticed the option to fill the header, sidebar and footer with widgets. This space is the ideal home for some well-placed advertisements and an easy way for you to increase your income.
Once your blog is making waves and becoming an authority in your chosen niche, businesses will approach you. But until then, you’ll need to reach out to companies and make them aware of how awesome your blog is. You’ll have an easier job of doing so if your blog and content appeal to the style of their brand.
So there you have it: four straightforward and efficient ways to make money from your blog, all of which can be applied to your blog immediately. Take some time to find the right companies to pitch sponsored posts and advertising opportunities to, and compare the reseller hosting packages of reputable website hosting companies.
