Can you make money by writing on a blog? Of course you can! Many people make a full time income by working from home and sharing content! There are several ways to make money and I’m going to share three with you!
Sponsored Posts – This happens when a brand approaches a blogger or content creator to post their article on their site in return for payment. I have been approached for these, but generally it’s a product or service that doesn’t make sense for me and my readers.
Product Reviews – This happens when a brand gives a blogger a product or service to to review, generally in exchange for payment, but occasionally in exchange for the product or service. As example of this on my site was our visit to ICE in Orlando at the Gaylord Palms. You’ve also seen these in some of my posts about local restaurants and events. I say no to more invites than I say yes to… I am picky on who I work with!
Affiliate Links – At the most recent conference, I was introduced to Awin.com (Affiliate Link), or Affiliate Window. They partner brands with content producers to promote products and services. The brand can be picky on who they allow to be an affiliate and each content creator can be choosy on the brands that they work with in order to stay authentic to their brand. There are many affiliate companies, but this one has a wonderful interface for managing the campaigns that you have applied to work with!
Note to my readers: While I may employee some of these to earn an income from my blog, I promise that I will never recommend a product or service that I do not use myself and honestly love! It is important to me to remain genuine to you! Thank you for reading my blog!
