Blogging Your Life
“Get Paid, Blog Your Life” is the rallying cry of online entrepreneurs who create income online by creating blog posts that are monetized. In other words, these bloggers write about their day to day experiences in such a way that they get PAID for it.
However, all lifestyle blogs are not created equal, and not all lifestyle blogs make money. Creating a profitable lifestyle blog is more than just about writing about what you did or where you went. It requires promoting products that you use in your blog, so that your readers have the opportunity to purchase it.
So today’s blog post will provide the basics of how to get paid by blogging about your life.
Blog Your Life, Get Paid!
The idea of “Blog your life, get paid” sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it? And I would agree that creating a lifestyle blog is NOT an overnight project.
The most important thing to do is to make sure that your blog has a defined niche and target audience. For example, if your lifestyle blog is about concerts in your town, your favorite recipes, and Game of Thrones episodes, that is way too broad for a particular audience to find you. You would be better off creating a blog that focuses on ONE of those things. You could also consider creating three separate blogs too, but that’s a lot of work for someone new to blogging, so I don’t recommend it.
Make Money Blogging Your Life
To make money blogging your life, choose an aspect of your life niche that has a hungry audience, and I’m not talking about blogging your favorite recipes. A hungry audience, also your target market, is seeking a particular result to a problem, pain, or challenge.
Your hungry audience could be interested in keeping bees, slow cooking, dating/relationships, natural pain relief, etc. As engaging as your writing must be, it’s important to consider the product you want to promote when planning your blog post.
Blogging Your Life How To’s: Products You Use Regularly
One of the easiest ways to make money blogging your life is to incorporate products that you are already using in your everyday life. That’s the best way to get paid, blog your life!
Amazon. com offers TONS of products, which you can link to on your blog. You must first set up an Amazon Affiliates account, which will enable you to receive special links that Amazon uses to track the traffic that you send to their products. When someone purchases a product through your affiliate link, you can get an affiliate sales commission, which is pretty cool. If every post on your blog contains a link to an affiliate product, you increase your opportunities for sales.
Blogging Your Life How To’s: Your Passions
Blogging about a particular topic or niche gives you authority, so consider what you could write about often without getting bored. To get paid, blog your life and you better be excited about it, otherwise your readers will know. If you aren’t passionate about what you’re writing about, you will find excuses not to blog. So don’t pick a topic simply because you are good at it, or because you think there is a lot of money to be made in this niche.
Get Paid, Blog Your Life: Create Digital Products
Since blogging your life adds credibility and authority to your toolbox, you can also create your digital products which can also help you get paid as you blog your life. As long as there is a hungry target audience that wants what you are talking about, you can make your own digital products and have even more control over your income.
Creating your own digital products enable you to get get paid sooner than promoting someone else’s product. You can even have your own affiliate program so other people can promote your products for a commission.
