Ready? Here we go…
1.) Sponsored posts
You work with brands and blog about their products for money. Contact brands yourself to cold pitch, sit back and wait for brands to contact you, or join networks where you can search and apply for opportunities.
Sponsored posts work very well in some niches. For others, they can be dry opportunities.
2.) Freelance blogging
Get paid to blog for other blogs. Find opportunities here:
3.) Get paid to tweet
Sponsored posts for Twitter. These are much shorter captions obviously, because it is on social media and not a full blown blog post. These can pay $75+ per post! Check out Massive Sway and Pay Per Tweet to get started.
4.) Freelance writing
Different than freelance blogging. Blogging is typically in a conversational tone. Spelling and grammar not as important as for professional writing since you’re writing the way you talk, to connect more with readers.
With freelance writing, these opportunities include:
- Writing sales letters or sales pages
- Writing white papers
5.) Selling your products
Yes, you can sell your own products right on your blog. Create a category called “Store” and add it to your menu bar. Then, add products. Or, if you have a separate store site, just link it to your blog. Create a tab in your menu called “Store” or “Shop” and have it linked straight to your store. Easy!
Some ideas for things to sell:
- Coffee mugs
- Spreadsheets or checklists
As you see, you can sell both physical and digital products. For digital products, I recommend using Sendowl or product hosting. Prices are crazy affordable, starting at just $9/month.
6.) Selling your services
This includes any service you can provide to help your reader like virtual assisting or graphic design work. Here are some more service ideas to get you started:
- Writing sales letters
- Social media managing
- Social media consulting
- Blog coaching
- Life coaching
- Fitness coaching
- Food coaching
- Blog posting
