I think a lot of people are intimidated by making money on-line-especially through web sites. The thing is, if you don’t have a typical business web site, you can still make money with a personal blog! I did it for years and it was such a wonderful (and dare I say FUN?) opportunity.
The cool thing about blogging for money with a personal blog is that you can use any platform. On the flip side, you can STILL start a web site and utilize these tips as well. Just do what fits YOUR lifestyle best.
So, how did I make over $300 in one month?
The first thing I did was sign up for a blogging community that connected bloggers with companies. Within days, I was getting responses to my inquiries.
- I signed up to review and write an article about a national company. In exchange, they paid me $200.
- I signed up for another blogging community and participated in their weekly online marketing meetings (co-hosted by companies). During these meetings, they gave away $100 gift cards. By simply participating on a regular basis, I won!
Do your research and find communities that fit your niche. For starters, I would recommend checking out The Sway!
When you blog, whether it’s a personal bog or a business web site, your #1 goal should be networking within community platforms.
PS. Have you join by Facebook Group for bloggers to help grow your site?
