How To Make More Money With Your Blog Today

how to make more money blogging

Whether you already have a blog or not, it’s not secret that there’s big money in blogging. Big money, that is, for those who are willing to work for it. Many people will scoff and tell you that blogging isn’t a real job, but it can easily become a real job with real income if you work at it. In fact, some blogs help people to make more than they ever could have dreamed of making in a regular 9-5 job. It definitely takes time and patience to get to this level, but it can be done. 

Here’s how you can make more money with your blog today (assuming you already have one): 

Become More Consistent With Your Efforts 

If you’re not a consistent blogger, you’re not going to get consistent income. It’s as simple as that. This isn’t to say you won’t get any income at all, but as mentioned previously, you need to treat it like a real job if you’re going to make real income. Set up a blogging calendar, and note down when you’re going to publish your blogs. Better yet, do many of them in advance and line them all up so you don’t even have to think, other than to let the world know they are going live. You don’t always succeed when flying by the seat of your pants, although this is how many bloggers primarily function. 

If you’re consistent and you ensure your content is unique, helpful, and relevant enough, you might get some amazing opportunities. Some bloggers have been published in newspapers and magazines, and have even been posted on huge blogs as a guest blogger. This is how you get your name out there. Always write with your audience in mind and question whether you’re offering true value to them. 

Of course, it isn’t enough to simply write the content and hope for the best. You need to monitor what type of content gets the best result, so you can give your audience more of that. If one particular type falls flat every time and one is always a hit, then you know what you have to do.

Join The Right Affiliate Programs 

If you don’t want to wait to start earning money by being a top blogger/influencer in your niche, then you’re going to want to consider which advertising and affiliate programs to join. There are programs out there where you can earn a cut of what people buy using your links, and links where you can earn money just by having somebody click. Make sure you only join the programs that suit your blog. Remember, you don’t want your blog to look like one huge advertisement. Be genuine about these affiliate links if you use them. 

Make The Most Of Social Media 

Social media is the best way to get news of your blog out there. You can’t just write something and expect people to show up and read it, although you’ll likely get a few who do. Make the most of social media and use the following platforms to promote your blog (they are usually the most effective): 

• Facebook 
• Twitter 
• TikTok 
• Pinterest 
• LinkedIn 
• Tumblr 
• YouTube 
• Reddit 

Platforms like Instagram and Snapchat can also help, but it will depend entirely of what your niche is. Using social media you should also make an effort to build an email list. Once you have subscribers, you can make sure they don’t miss a post and advertise anything else you offer. 

Create Products 

Now, you may not get total satisfaction or a huge sum of money from affiliate links. You need to think outside the box a little. Can you create a product or products that support what you’re all about? When you’ve established yourself as an expert in your niche, advertising and selling your products should be pretty easy. 

You can create things like E-books, training courses, membership sites, and actual merchandise. Whatever you do, do it to add genuine value and it’ll do so much better. 

Build Better Blogs

If you want to make more money with your blog today, you’re going to need to think outside the box and put in a little more time. You could even start a vlog to enhance your efforts, although they will need to be high quality, and take more editing than a blog post. This means spending even more time and money getting it right. However, if you’re passionate about sharing what you know with quality content, it’ll be worth it.
