Brainstorming For Ways to Make Money Blogging

Aug 30, 2008
There have been several blogs posted giving their different views of how to increase income by enhancing their blogs. It seems different techniques work for different types of people. That would, of course, make perfect sense because every industry will attract a totally different audience.

I feel it is best to give suggestions and let the blogger choose the suggestion that he feels is right for him and mold it to his perfection. There are great ideas out there and we all see through different lenses. Here are some for your viewing.

Blogs are associated with sharing your thoughts and opinions with others. Don't overlook the ability to generate new business by referencing what you do and can offer to the readers. This can spread your opinions and business moxie at the same time. Many bloggers are afraid to let people know what services they can offer. This is generally a costly mistake and will leave a lot of money on the table.

Instead of a short commentary, journal articles are written demonstrating abilities, strategies and perspective on specific issues. When this resonates with certain readers, it brings in money. Some of the best bloggers out there are also brilliantly successful consultants.

To continue with this theme, another friend of mine has used his blog to deepen his existing customer relationship of his readers. He takes the advantage of the opportunity to fully inform them about his second business. This has naturally generated extra business on the side.

He has used his blog to acquire clients once they became aware of his skills and services. He now does consulting and teaching part-time. This all came about through his readers and spread of mouth, plus his blog continues to grow.

Help sell others' products and you also get paid. Affiliate programs enable your blog to serve as a conduit between readers and online sites for goods and services. If your blog mentions a book and readers can click directly to Amazon, you get paid as well.

Self-advertising is the most common means to generate income. If your blog becomes well known or well received, you will be able to sell space on your own. To start out use Google's AdSense or BlogAds, which lets you select the ads and pays you per click.

If you have a business blog that helps support, spreads the word or educates the public in some way you should consider asking for contributions. Educational posts on tax reform, health care or blogging support qualifies for donations from grateful people.

A neighbor who is a retired schoolteacher loves to write, now makes extra income by writing articles for online publications and other affiliate programs. He once had his own blog yet said he did not enjoy it due to the stress and said he makes more money this way.

I figure at the age of 79 he can choose to do what makes him happy brainstorming anyway he wants to make money blogging or not. Blogging definitely isn't for everyone, but can be a great way to get your name out there if you are persistent enough to make it work!
