Monetize Your Blog
If you’re a well-loved blogger, there’s a good chance that your readers would like to show their support. Give them what they want and make money by taking advantage of merchandising opportunities. Here are different ways that you can Monetize Your Blog. Take a look
- Self-Published Books: If your readers like your content, they may want to have something they can own offline or even share with friends. Create a book with self-publishing services like Lulu, and you’ll earn profits even without a huge book deal.
- Subscription Content: Create a monthly subscription service with cleanly organized content that can be accessed both online and offline. You can take things a step further and sell subscriptions for future updates to the system.
- Paid Content: Paid content is a good monetization method for bloggers that regularly offer useful information — especially if this information helps others make money. As with all monetization methods, it’s all in the approach. Don’t create misleading previews of content that requires a membership to read in full. Rather, devote special sections of premium content to readers who are willing to pay for the information.
- E-Books: Whether it’s a compilation of your best tips or a new idea altogether, an e-book is a good, reader-friendly way to package content.
- White Papers: Like e-books, white papers are a smaller, more technical version of your content.
- Phone Calls: Sell one-on-one phone calls for advice and other consulting services.
- Miniguides: If you’ve just run a particularly helpful series, package it up into a miniguide.
- Tutorials: Gather your knowledge and compile it into a tutorial that relies upon your expert advice.
- Members-Only Sections: Whether you’re providing access to published items or just ad-free content, make sure you’re delivering a product that your readers are willing to pay for.
- Podcasts: Podcasts may be a novelty to your readers, and many of them are probably willing to pay to be able to hear your entries on the go.
- Videos: Like podcasts, videos are value-added extras that readers may be willing to pay for.
