STARTING A BLOG

One of the misconceptions about starting a blog is that you need to be a great writer to be successful. Nothing could be further from the truth. People read blog sites to get a personal perspective on things, so most bloggers write in a very informal and conversational style.

One thing most people wonder before or even after they’ve started their blog is whether or not the topic they chose is actually going to make money…Trying to figure out what to blog about is a complicated process!Which begs the question: are there certain types of blogs that make money? Certainly, some niches are easier to scale and profit from than others, but I definitely think that almost any type of blog can make money. And as I’ll explain below, it’s not always about popularity.

So why would you go to the trouble of blogging? There are a few reasons:

Share your story.

 A blog allows you to have a voice and be heard. You can share your story with the entire world if you so choose. One of the most common ways blogs are used are as a diary where the blogger writes about their daily experiences so that friends, family, and others can all be a part of their lives.

Blogging can be quite lucrative if done correctly.

 The top bloggers in the world obviously earn quite a bit, but even a part-time blogger can expect to make a nice profit if things are done correctly. The best part about it is that blogging is a form of passive income, since you can spend just a few hours a week writing a piece of content and then continue to profit from it long after the the writing is finished. I go into much more detail on how to blog for money later in this guide.

Recognition for yourself or your business.

 No, you probably won’t have paparazzi following you around because of your latest post. But a successful blog makes your idea into a reality, and can gain you a ton of recognition in your respective field. Many bloggers are known as experts just because of their blogs, and some have even gotten book and movie deals based on their blogs.

Find a community.

Blogging at its heart is interactive. You write a post and people comment on it. This is a good way to connect with people who are interested in the same things as you are. Blogging allows you to teach these people based on your experience, and it gives you the opportunity to learn from your readers as well.

Keep in mind that if you don’t see your blog niche on this list, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to monetize your efforts!This is just a starting place for you to understand what types of blogs make money so that you can do the same for your own blog.

1. Create a business directory

What types of product or services does your audience frequently ask for recommendations on? Compile a list, and then approach relevant businesses to sign up for your business directory. A tool like Business Directory Plugin makes it easy to get started

2. Promote an affiliate product

Affiliate sales comprise a large chunk of revenue for most big-name bloggers. For instance, Pat Flynn made $53K last month from affiliate sales, compared to “just” $9,500 from book sales. In general, look for affiliate products with higher price points; web hosting companies are a great choice if it makes sense in your niche, with payouts of anywhere from $60-$130+ per signup.

3. Sell ad space

This is the strategy that most bloggers start with when looking to monetize their blog. However, keep in mind you’re not limited to selling banner ad spots (which is generally an ineffective strategy these days). Consider other areas you could rent out: space on your pop-up box, social media headers, the “P.S.” on your email newsletters…think outside the box (quite literally).

4. Offer services

While selling your services may not make you rich (look to passive income to do that!), it’s a great way to make some extra cash and to build up your reputation. Sell services directly related to the topic of your blog (e.g., catering for a food blog), or freelance blogging services like writing or graphic design.

5. Offer coaching services

Similar to consulting, coaching is usually more a one-on-one service (while consulting is generally provided to organizations or teams). Put together a range of packages you can offer: hourly consults, DIY packages, or unlimited email advice packages.

6. Host webinars

While many businesses use them to generate leads, hosting paid webinars is also an option. Just make sure you’re providing exceptional value – with so many free webinars out there, you need to be offering something pretty special if you want to charge for it.

7. Host sponsored contests or giveaways

Approach businesses in your niche and offer to host a giveaway or contest on your blog or on social media. This can increase awareness of their business among your followers; and when done right, can also generate a ton of leads for their business.

8. Teach an online course

Want to design and host an online course entirely on your blog? WordPress plugins like LearnDash and Zippy Courses make it easy to get started. Of, if you’d prefer to host your course through an established online education site, look at Udemy or Skillshare.

9. Write an ebook

Have in-depth knowledge in your niche? Package it up into an ebook and sell it on your blog. I’d generally advise against selling it (at least exclusively) on Amazon or Kobo, as you’ll probably be able to charge much less. If you’ve already built up a solid audience, you can probably change anywhere from $5 for a very short one, all the way up to $39+.

10. Sponsored social content

Give businesses some airtime on your Facebook page, or post sponsored tweets or Instagram pics. These are ridiculously quick and easy to post, and you can charge anywhere from $25-$500+ per post depending on the size of your audience.
