So you have a blog….great! Did you know that you can start monetizing it and earning income? There are 3 top ways to start earning an income off your blog today.
I started blogging a little less than a year ago as a way to document my life, the kid’s milestones, and share photos with family and friends. Over the course of the year my following grew and opportunities arose to monetize my site. I have earned a little under $3,000 in the 5 months since I started monetizing. I should also note that I am currently working full time and blog on the side.
How to Monetize Your Blog
Influencer networks like Social Fabric, Full Bottle (if you join I would love for you to use my name Jaclyn Quinones when you sign up!), Linqia (this is my referral link), Obvious.ly, Influence Central, Social Native, Activate by BlogLovin’ and Everywhere Society pay bloggers/influencers to share content on their sites. I only shared brands and products that were true to my blog and that I felt were valuable to my readers. There are so many more networks you can join, but those are the top ones that earned my site money. You can also cut out the middle man and go directly to the brand you want to partner with.
