Making money from your blog doesn’t have to ruin the fun of the hobby. You can still write about topics that interest you and turn over a bit of profit. It’s about finding the right balance. Blogging is a fun but it just requires time and patience. These tips aren’t everything but they’ll deffo help!! 

Increase website traffic.

Increasing website traffic is hard work but pays off! I’m sure that will already be your goal, of course, but it’s not as simple as clicking your fingers and watching visitors pour into your homepage. Attracting online blog readers is difficult in this competitive age. Everybody has a website. Even if your blog targets a specific niche, you probably still have competitors with very similar blogs that are dominating the first page of search results. You just need to think outside the box if you want to get people’s attention and increase traffic to your site. Great content is the most important thing. It’s not just about relevant keywords, however; you need a well-designed website that’s responsive to all devices. Your blog needs to look neat and tidy on mobiles, tablets, and laptops. That’ll impress search engine algorithms and the readers who find your website.

Make it work

Before you quit your day job, you gotta do some work! You need to work on growing your following. Many bloggers make money through sponsored deals but they’re often few and far between! 

You should also use social media to hunt down opportunities. Blogging isn’t just about owning a website; think about your other chanels. You don’t have to use them all. Use the ones best suited to you and you’ll make the best impression! 

You can also make a little extra through online advertising. PPC can work quite well; the advertiser will pay you for every website visitor who clicks on the ad you display. But if you’re still wondering how do you make money blogging? There is no magic solution. You shouldn’t just post content and wait for things to happen; make things happen. But at the same time if you love writing earning cash on the side is a nice bonus. 

Sell your creations

If you’ve spent alot of time on the design of your blog why not make merchandise for your homegrown brand. There are so many bloggers with hidden talents. Use your audience to share your work and create a little side hustle! You might draw, paint, sew, whatever. You may be a confident writer or photographer. There are some cost that come with blogging so use these extra things to invest in yourself. Treating yourself to a new camera, laptop or even just a note book may reinvigorate your passion for blogging!
