CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Blogging may be old-school, but it remains popular and is actually enjoying a bit of a comeback as people tire of having their internet time curated by social media algorithms. Can you make a career out of blogging or at least a decent side income? The answer is yes, but it’s important to understand that there will be a lot more to it than just writing posts. The tips below can help you find success.
Choose a Focus
First, you need to choose your niche. This can be broad, like lifestyle, or it can be narrow, like model trains sets or hiking in the southwestern United States. If you choose a popular area, such as books, travel, cooking or fitness, you may want to consider what will set you apart from the many other blogs on the same topic. At first, you might not be certain what will make you unique. It could be something that you gradually realize is a good niche once you have started. It’s okay to take a little while to develop and find your voice.
Set Aside Money
While you may hope to eventually make some money from your blog, you might have to spend some at first. You may need to pay someone to design your site. There could be costs to getting your own domain. You may also want to spend some money on promotions. If you are looking for ways to save on your monthly expenses, you might want to be creative. For example, you may be able to consolidate your student loans using a private lender. This can simplify monthly payments by reducing them from several to one and may save you money as well that you can put toward your blog.
Use Other Platforms and Income Strategies
You can use social media platforms to promote your blog. You don’t have to use them all, and in fact, you should stick the ones that appeal to you the most and where the bulk of your audience will be. This can be a great way to keep people alerted about new content and draw in new readers. You may also want to consider having a newsletter. In addition, think about how you will make money from your blog. Affiliate marketing is a big thing for many bloggers. As you grow in reputation, you may find brands coming to you.
Provide Solid Content
It sounds obvious to say you need good content, but a look around a few random sites will indicate to you that it might not be. You need to give your readers something of value. What counts as value may vary; if you are a talented writer, it could be your style. In other cases, it could be the quality of your photographs or the well-researched information that you offer.
It takes time to find your audience as a blogger and even longer to start making any money off of it. Your site needs to be a labor of love to start with. If you are patient and consistent and continue offering top-quality content and promoting your work, you will eventually find an audience of loyal readers.
