If you’re looking to make extra money, running your own blog is a great way to do so, but if you think you can simply set up a blog, add a bit of content now and again and generate lots of cash from just a few Google ads, you are very likely to be mistaken.
If you’re serious about making serious cash, you need to work hard to create as many income streams on your blog as possible. Ideally, you should also aim to create passive income because passive income is income you can make in your sleep, while you’re in line at the grocery store, or even when you’re on vacation. Sound good? Here are some ideas to help you turn your blog into a passive income generating machine….
Ads and Affiliate Links
Google ads and affiliate links have made a few people rich, but for the average blogger, they alone are not enough to generate a significant income. That being said, they cannot be discounted if you’re looking to build a blog that gives you plenty of passive income. So, be sure to add appropriate affiliate links, related to your niche, in the body of your content, and place Google ads, as unintrusively as possible, on your blog pages. That way, every time someone visits your blog and reads a piece of your content, you’re giving yourself the chance to make a little money.
Create a Course
Sign up for an LMS Trial and use the software to start building your very own course. It’s a great way to turn your blog visitors into ready cash. Don’t know what to write a course about? Start with blogging or the subject of your blog, whether that’s saving money or writing science fiction. If people visit your blog for content on a specific subject, chances are many of them would be willing to pay you to teach them about it in more depth. Take advantage of that and start making more money while building your authority in your niche.
Do Some Dropshipping
Dropshipping is a great opportunity for bloggers who want to start selling physical goods without all of the effort involved. It’s never been easier, thanks to a myriad of plugins, to add a storefront to your blog, and there have never been more dropshipping opportunities to sell anything you want from t-shirts to gadgets and everything in between.
What’s dropshipping? Basically, it’s a supply chain system where you as the seller do not hold any stock. Instead, any orders made by your customers are passed on to a third-party who will take a percentage of the profits in exchange for packaging and shipping anything you sell. The process can be almost entirely automated, which is why it’s such a good way to make passive income, especially now that so much shopping is done online. Just be sure to shop around for the best prices before you choose a dropshipping partner to work with.
