Blog Your Way to Big Bucks
If you’re looking for a good way to earn some money on the side, something that could potentially be quite lucrative and which could even give you a full-time income at some point in the future, then you could do a lot worse than to give blogging a go.
If you decide to start a blogging side-hustle, you won’t start making money straight away. However, as you add content and build up your brand if you do it right, you should see the money start rolling in, and you will build up a good source of passive income.
So, how exactly do you blog your way to big bucks? By doing the following for starters:
Choose a Solid Blog Design
If you want people who visit your blog to stay, enjoy and perhaps part with their cash or click on your ads, then you need to ensure that your blog has a nice, clean design that is responsive and can be seen by all. You don’t need to pay much for this, but it is important that you host your own blog with a design that matches your subject if you want to make it as appealing as possible.
Invest in SEO
As noted by Mike, who’s an experienced digital marketer, today’s SEO, or search engine optimization to give it its full name, is not just about adding basic keywords and building simple backlinks. If you want anyone to find your site; if you want to get into the first page of Google, it takes much more hard work than that. That’s why you should either invest your time in learning the latest SEO techniques or your money in hiring an SEO expert to do the work for you.
Create Useful Content
Of course, every blog needs content, so you should start creating that as soon as possible. Of course, if you want to make the big bucks, then you need to create content that is actually useful to the reader. How to’s, guides, and instructional videos are all good forms of content that will bring traffic your way. Just ensure that your information is accurate and that your content is as engaging as it can possibly be.
Once you’ve got all of the above in place, there is a good chance that you’ll be able to build a loyal following. That means you may also be able to make money, but you’ll only be able to do that if your blog is monetized.
There are numerous ways you can monetize your blog from adding Google Ads to your pages or promoting specific products to creating and selling your own products, courses or e-books. Only you will know which avenue is likely to work for you and appeal to your specific audience, but if you can use a mixture of all three, you will stand a much better chance of earning a decent income from your blog. Of course, you can play around with the monetizing of your site to see what works and what doesn’t – things don’t have to remain static, so do monitor your traffic and conversion rates and act accordingly.
I hope this helps you get started on your way to a blog that really brings in those big bucks!
