Let’s be real, most people love sharing their experiences online. Whether it’s about their latest vacation, what gear they use for their favorite hobby, or just what kind of food they like, people love chatting about themselves and what they love online. Now if you’re new to affiliate marketing, you’re probably wondering how you can make money online from blogging. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Below, we’ll discuss some of the best ways you can make money online from a blog. We’ll cover affiliate marketing, how it works, and how you can get started with just $5.
Create a Blog Around a Product You’re Personally Interested In
Creating a blog around a product you’re personally interested in is a great way to ensure that the content you create is relevant to your niche and is going to be valuable to your audience. When choosing products to talk about on your blog, make sure to choose products that you’ve either used or are familiar with. If you’ve never used a product, it may be a good idea to test it out before you put down your thoughts online. This way you can ensure that what you say is true and that you’re expressing your opinions based on experience, as opposed to just saying it to get money from advertisers.
Build a Following On Social Media
If you’re not using social media to promote your blog (yet!), it’s a great place to start. There are tons of platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook where you can connect with others who share your interest in the same products and topics. When you have a big enough following on social media, you can use influencer marketing to grow your blog’s revenue. In influencer marketing, you work with influencers (typically celebrities) to gain brand exposure and, hopefully, make some money off clicks and conversions.
Offer In-House Trainings for Free
In-house trainings are valuable. If you’ve got experienced coaches who are willing to teach others about your product or service, why not offer up a free or paid in-house training for your blog. Not only does it allow you to teach potential customers about your products, but it also shows that you’re a reliable and honest company.
Use Videos to Explain Complex Things
If you’re using written content to explain complex things, videos can often be a faster and more efficient way for your customers to understand. The video below demonstrates how HubSpot uses videos effectively across their platforms to educate customers.
