Diverse Your Income With A Money Making Blog
If you are a fan of writing, this is the perfect way to build up a steady income from home. Of course, even if you don’t enjoy blogging – you can hire affordable writers to handle all the content while you manage the marketing aspect of your blog.
You may be thinking, “It is impossible to make a living off of blogging”
Well, what if I had to tell you that my friend just purchased her first car thanks to her blog? The amazing thing, she only has 2,000 readers! Blogging is a fantastic way to build up a reliable income. But it does take a ton of work to get it running properly.
So, how can you make hard cash from blogging?
There are tons of ways, which is why we labeled as our most diverse way to make money from home.
The first and most common method of making money from blogging is affiliate marketing. Essentially, you use your website as a medium to sell someone else’s product or service.
The pro: You do not need to invest capital to develop a product/service.
The downfall: It takes time to build trust with your audience.
As an affiliate marketer lead conversion (insert TBPA link) is your main priority. Your articles and blogs on the website will provide value to solve real-time problems you fan-base has on a daily basis.
Over time, they see the value you provide, and hopefully, this generates a desire towards the product/service that you are selling.
Build Up A Website And Sell It (No Way!)
Okay, I have to admit, even though I have helped countless businesses build a successful digital audience, this still came as a surprise to me.
Back in the day, someone decided to open up their own listicle blog. He hired a few writers to help him rewrite other articles that did well and went fairly viral. After a few years, he got a bit bored… so he decided to sell. What do you think he got for it?
$100 – $1000? Try adding a few zeros. This website sold for a whopping $100 million. That’s right! Oh yeah, did we mention that before selling – this website generated between $200k to $400k per month in ad revenue? Trust us when we say blogging is definitely worth the hustle it takes to get it off the ground.
Develop Your Own Mobile Application
Do you love playing games on your phone? I mean who doesn’t!
Well, how about developing your own applications? There are tons of courses out there that will teach you the skills you need to make awesome applications.
When you think about it, who doesn’t have a smartphone nowadays? There is a huge target market for you to choose from. All you need to do is hustle, and get yourself on board the ship.
The best part about choosing to develop applications for smartphone users is the overhead costs are next to nothing. Which makes it easier to get started, and have a high-profit yield. Of course, you can use ads in your apps to generate even more income. But we recommend you don’t get too overenthusiastic – after all, ads can get annoying when they keep popping up all over the place.
