Most people start a blog because they hope it will grow into a successful online business; successful enough to replace a full-time job. I know it was a goal for me!Blogging can become a great source of income. #blogging #passiveincomeClick To Tweet
You can partner up with brands and get paid for writing content about their products. You can become affiliates to write about your favorite products and services. And then there’s Google Adsense where you can earn money when visitors click on ads displayed on your website.
But making money with your blog is not limited to paid content and Google Adsense. Oh no, no, no!
Your blogging journey will have many twists and turns. You will discover traits you might not know you had like perseverance during tough times and pick up a new skill like learning how to customize websites.
And even though you had no blogging experience when you first started, you can evolve into one of the best writers out there.
All of that experience can open the doors for passive income. In this post, I’m going to give you three passive income stream possibilities when you start a blog.
3 Ways Blogging Can Open The Door To Passive Income
How Blogging Can Create Passive Income
If there is anything I’ve learned about blogging in the past nine-and-a-half years it’s that there is no limit to what you can do to start making a passive income as a blogger.
Here are three ways blogging can open the passive income flood gates.
#1 Turn Your Blog Posts Into eBooksWriting eBooks is probably the most common strategy for bloggers who are making a passive income. #ebooks #passiveincomeClick To Tweet
You’re probably wondering where you’re going to find the time to sit down and write an eBook. Well, if you’ve got tons of content on your blog, you’re halfway there!
First, do some research. Select a topic for the eBook and what content you want to use. The easiest way to figure that out is to filter your blog posts by category. The category with the most blog posts wins!
Sort blog posts into subcategories like blog traffic, blogging tools, etc. These can become eBook chapters.
Put them all together, update the content if it needs it and bam, you have yourself an eBook!
#2 Teach Others What You’ve Learned By Creating Online Courses
Online courses is another type of passive income. Many successful bloggers go on to create online courses to teach others what they did to reach success.
For example, you can create an online course to show new bloggers how to grow a blog, make money blogging, or how to create quality content.
#3 – Create Products Or Services With The Blogging Skills You Pick Up
Other bloggers who pick up a new skill teach other bloggers what they’ve learned.
Let’s say you learned how to create stylish fonts using free tools. You can create an online course to show other bloggers how to create their own fonts.
Some bloggers go on to create digital products like printables and if you’ve ever been on Etsy, you’ll know printables are a big deal right now!
Here are more examples of passive income:
- Create apps
- Design websites
- Sell stock photography
