5 Things to Get Right if You Want to Make Money Blogging
Making money blogging is the dream- you can do it from the comfort of your own home, doing something you genuinely enjoy.

But of course, it’s not that easy.

Creating a blog that companies will pay to work with takes time and effort, but if you stick with it it’s definitely something that could be possible for you.

Here are some ideas for going about it.

High quality content

First things first, if you want to make money blogging then your site needs to feature high quality content.

This is content that’s valuable to a reader, free from plagiarism, offers useful (non-spammy) links and is generally pleasing or interesting to consume.

When you’re working on building a blog, really focus on your content- the words you use, your language, grammar and the photographs that will bring the words to life.

It takes time and effort to create this kind of content, so don’t rush it and focus on filling your site with things your audience will want to read.

A professional design

While content is king, the design is also important.

A professional design will be clean and easy on the eye, it will make your site look appealing so that people will want to read what you have to say. At some point in your blogging journey, you’ll need to focus on website design to bring it up to standard.

Advertisers and sponsors will want to work with sites that look nice, as well as provide useful content.

Follow options

If you want to build a readership and ensure people come back, you need to give them follow options.

Sign up with a blog follow site like Bloglovin, and link to your social media pages. That way, readers can follow you and will see your tweets and posts each time you release new content.

Give as many options as possible, as different people will want to follow in different ways. Some will only catch up with your updates on Instagram, whereas others will prefer Facebook or Twitter.

Some users, especially those that don’t use social media might prefer for your latest post to be delivered to their email, so have email notifications set up.

Contact details

In time, you will start to gain the attention of advertisers who want to work with your site- so make sure you have contact details easily available.

Be sure to use an email address that you check frequently to avoid missing out on opportunities.


Finally, when sponsors are choosing sites to work with, they’re most likely to choose those that have engagement from their readership.

So encouraging comments and shares will not only mean your content reaches more people (something we all want as bloggers and writers) but that sponsors are more likely to work with you too.

Meaning more earning opportunities!

Ask a question at the ends of your blog posts to encourage comments, network with other bloggers and support each other.

Build genuine friendships with bloggers, it’s rewarding as well as mutually beneficial.
