Have you started a blog and are wondering how to make money from it? I get it. It’s exciting to see bloggers around you make money from writing about their favourite things. However, it’s also important to grow your blog, grow an audience and then think about monetisation. Maybe you’ve had a blog for a while and are now considering making some money from it – if I can do it, so can you! It might take some time to grow your blog to the point where you can make a living out of it but for the time being, who doesn’t love some extra cash?
Start selling your crafts.
Maybe you have a blog about making handmade soaps or creating your own jewellery? Maybe you blog about your love for chocolate or about everything food related? Why not start selling things related to your content? Sell your creations, sell merchandise – sell, sell, sell! If you love doing it, your friends and family absolutely love your creations, maybe others would do too!
Advertising Lab, London Magento design agency, recommend creating an online store to sell your crafts. Yes, you could start selling them in different marketplaces but by creating your own website, you can fully create a brand around your product and you will have the flexibility to display your products as you’d like. The team at Ad Lab can’t recommend enough creating a beautiful, sleek and modern website to attract customers.

Passive income might not give you money to pay the rent but it will definitely pay for some coffees every now and then. Plus, it’s passive income and is super easy to set up – all you have to do is install a piece of code on your website (which is easier than it looks) and let the ads run! As Stephi LaReine says, “Display ads are easy to add to your blog and will give you a little bit of extra cash when people interact with those ads. Plus, the ads will most likely be relevant to your audience, so it’s a win-win!”
“There are many companies and affiliate programmes out there that offer bloggers and other online creators a chance to make some money from promoting products with a special link. When a person purchases said products using that link, you’ll get a commission!” explains Accidental Hipster Mum. I’d recommend promoting products that you love to use, there’s no need to promote products you’ve never used which might not be good, all for some extra money.
As someone with an audience that looks at what you post and engages with the things you write about, companies will look at you as a great advertising opportunity! So, you can partner up with brands to promote events, special products and more! As Pretty Big Butterflies says, “If you have a large following, companies may reach out to you but if you have a smaller following you’ll have to do some more leg work – contact companies you’d like to work with and pitch them your sponsored post ideas!”
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
