This is where you get to sell Yourself it sounds scary doesn’t it?

Are you at something in particular related to your blog?

Maybe you have a DIY Craft blog and you are good at Sewing?

What about offering coaching services for sewing this could be virtual via youtube for example.

Teaching a group or individual how to sew.

2. Create and sell online courses

Again this comes back to selling your expertise.

What about creating a course and selling it online?

For instance how to start a blog step by step.

How to start a craft business selling on Etsy.

Just pulling this stuff out the air – there are probably courses on these topics you can find on places like

3. Self-publish

If you are confident about your topic and like to write I mean a LOT what about self-publishing an Ebook on Amazon.

You could make some money doing this is you know your stuff make it an add-on to one of your posts, for instance, an in-depth look at a topic you are really familiar.

For instance how to win on Etsy.

4. Virtual summit

This can be a great way to connect with influencers and build relationships.

You can “ borrow” authority.

5. The money is in your email list

This is a great one even if you have a small email list. You want to make sure that your email subscribers are super engaged with what you have to say. If you have cool subscribers they are not going to want to hear what you say and will not want to eventually buy from you.

Make sure your email opt-in addresses only one issue that your subscribers could have and it targets your tribe of subscribers.

6. Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is a commision based system which allows you to add banners and links to your blog and when people click on these links and purchase products you recommend then you earn a commission on the purchase.

You should only promote products you know and love and is relevant to your blog topics.

Don’t forget you also need to add disclosures to your posts when you add affiliate links or banners.

7. Advertising

You can join Ad networks to add ad’s to your blog as soon as you start your blog.

Google Ad’s can be added to your blog without many page views and you could potentially start earning money start away.

It may not always be the best thing to add ad’s to your blog straight away as it potentially could distract your blog viewers from your posts content when you are just starting and hinder your growth.

There are fantastic Ad networks to choose from once you have over 25,000 page views Mediavine is one and if you have 100,000 page views per month then Adthrive is another option.
