Learning How to Make Money Blogging in 2017 and Beyond
While the concept of writing blogs for money may be simple, it can be confusing when you are just getting started.
There are a couple of things you need to think about when you are getting started.
#1 – What Are You Going to Write About?
Before you get rolling, you need to think about what you want to write about.
Do you have a topic you are passionate about and enjoy writing about? If so, that could be a good place to start. You need to consider the 2nd point, however and we will get to that in a few minutes.
When you are considering the different topics you could write about, you need to make sure that not only do you like the topic, but other people need to like it as well.
You can see if people are looking for it if there is “search volume” in the google keyword planner.
All you have to do to check that out is go into google and type in “google keyword planner” and enter the desired topic.
#2 – What Way Do You Want to Bring in Revenue?
Once you have decided the topic that you want to write about, you need to figure out how you are going to make money.
Some of the common ways people monetize their blogs:
- Selling ads to people directly
- Affiliate products
- Creating their own products
Depending on what you want, any of these means of making money is a good option.
Adsense is a pretty no-brainer way to make money. All that you have to do is put some code on your website.
Selling ads to people directly can take a little more time, but you can get more of the money than if you split it with adsense.
Affiliate products are a great way to make money since you can usually pocket a good amount of cash and you don’t actually have to ship or take care of the product in any way.
Creating your own product allows you to make more money, but you’ll have to deal with all of the headaches.
Some people decide to just do freelance writing because it is faster cash than making money blogging.
