10 WAYS TO MAKE A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
STEP 1 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG:
Post good quality work on your blog. Content is king and giving free content to your readers frequently and consistently will ensure the readers keep coming back for more. My new blogging schedule is for me to blog twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday.
This means that the very first step you must take is to ensure you are consistent with your content. Create a calendar and stick to it. Your content should help the readers otherwise no one will read or connect with your work. The more work you create the more you will attract readers that will turn into buyers.
STEP 2 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
Utilize social media to reach bigger audiences so that you can get your blog to more readers every day. Make it your mission to connect with new fellow bloggers in your niche every week. If you are a beauty blogger, connect with hair salons, other makeup artists, and clients on a weekly basis. Join Facebook groups as a way to make more connections. Guest blog on other bloggers sites to expand your reach. Promote your work on social media frequently. New posts should be tweeted out at least 5 times on the day you publish, re-pinned on all Pinterest groups and your own groups as well as promoted on Instagram, Maven, Facebook groups and Pinterest Tribes.
Maven is a new platform that makes me money every week. Join here for FREE and include your Blog link for more opportunities and exposure.
STEP 3 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
Promote and market your blog like your life depended on it. Don’t just create great content and let it sit in your archive. Promote it frequently! Not only on social media but they are so many ways to market your blog. Social media is just one of them. If you do not have an email list, start building an engaged email list to market your work too.
STEP 4 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
If you are looking for a way to get a full time income from your blog, you should consider starting a side hustle. A side hustle is a way to earn extra money outside your full-time job and even outside your blog. We have created a few blogs that can help you get started with side hustling: 5 side hustles every entrepreneur must start today, 7 Ways to Boost your Online blog INCOME and make Money and 10 Easy Way to Make money from Home doing odd jobs!
STEP 5 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
The one step that will definitely ensure your blog success is to get yourself organized. This means creating a full plan for your blog with a list of topics you will blog about each month, how you will promote it, the steps you will take to reach your short and long term goals. A very organized blogger is a successful one. That is why we created a FREE blog planner that you can download to get yourself organized.
STEPS 6 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
Consider creating your own digital products or services to offer clients as a way to make money online. This is my favorite way of monetizing our blog. You can make some serious money by offering products that you have created and promoted. My two eBooks “How to get over 30,000 page views using Facebook” and “How to make $1000 from your blog in 45 t0 60 days” are my most popular eBooks. You can also create courses to make money online.

STEP 7 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
Working with brands is another way of making a full time income from your blog. Bloggers are making over $2000-$3000 per month just by working with brands. Ensure you work with brands that are in your niche otherwise your blog will be out of commission fast than you think. Create a following on social media, post consistently as we mentioned above and work on a media kit to attract brands. Consider applying for Linqia, IZEA and Massive Way as a way to find work.
STEP 8 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
Affiliate marketing is the easiest way to monetize any blog. If you really want to make lots of money from your blog, then you should consider affiliate marketing. You earn a commission for every sale you make when someone clicks on your link and purchases something. If you want a way to increase your affiliate income, then read this blog! – If you really want to succeed with Affiliate marketing I would recommend the following courses and eBooks: “Making sense of affiliate marketing” and “How to make your first affiliate int 24 hours with Pinterest!” These two tools have been instrumental in growing my affiliate sales!
STEP 9 ON CREATING A FULL TIME INCOME FROM YOUR BLOG
Building an email list is crucial to taking your blog to the next level. Most bloggers say that 0.02% of your list usually convert into buyers. If you have an engaged email list of 1000 people, this means about 20 people will purchase what you are selling, signing up for something you are promoting or becoming regular fans. If you have a product that you are selling for $97 this means you could make $1, 940.00. Can you imagine if you have 10 times that list? That’s why I make it a priority to grow my list.
The tools that make it easy for me to grow my list and stay in touch with my subscribers are Leadpages and Convert Kit! If you are not sure how to get your next 1000 email subscribers, our eBook will guide you!
