As marriage bloggers, you can help them make their dream a reality. Providing ideas and inspiration to guide them along the planning process is a rewarding job!
Making money from your marriage blog is not impossible, though it may be difficult at first.
Strap yourselves in for the adventure of monetizing your marriage blog. Keep reading for five ways you can make your dream a reality!
1. Try Google Adsense
In short, Google Adsense helps you make money by letting companies run ads on your site.
There are two ways this can happen.
Either you can get paid per hits on your site, or paid per click on the ad itself. Either way works, so give it a try.
2. Write an E-Book
With the rise of self-publishing, writing an e-book is another great way to make a quick buck.
If you’re well-established as an author, blogging can be extremely lucrative. However, even if you’re new to the blogging game you can make some fast money for a small amount of work.
3. Gain More Traffic
If no one is coming to your blog, then how much money are you actually going to make from it in the first place?
Here are a few quick tips to help boost your blog’s traffic.
Strategize Blogging Times
Blog no less than 2-3 times a week. The more content you have on your website, the more web pages a search engine like Google has to index, and the more likely it is to rank it higher on a search.
Your posts don’t have to be novels; 200-400 words is more than adequate.
Utilize Key Words
Sit down and research a list of popular key words typically associated with marriage and marriage blogs. For example, you can try “honeymoon” or “marriage ministry.” Once you have a list of 20 or so words, incorporate a few of them into each of your blogs.
Hire Professional Writers
You don’t have to tackle all of the blog writing yourself. There are some great professional writing companies willing to help fill your blog with content, so do a little research and find ones with experience writing in your niche.
Invite Guest Bloggers
Guest bloggers can help increase your exposure within the market of marriage blogging. Find experts who have something to say and that fit your demographic, and ask them to contribute to your blog!
4. Use Affiliate Marketing
Once you have people coming to your blog, it’s time to start making money. Affiliate marketing is one of the more popular ways to do this.
All you need to do is find a product to promote and promote it. It will help with the integrity of your site if you stick to products and services which have some loose association with marriage and marital bliss.
If someone visits your blog, clicks on the link, and purchases said product or service, then YOU get a cut of the profit.
Depending on the product, you can make up to 75% of the sale of the item. Not too bad of a deal!
5. Sell Products or Services
Since this is a marriage blog, it might be a great place to offer your services as a marriage counselor, public speaker, etc.
This is the most direct way to make money on your site, as the money is coming directly to you. Do your research — payment sites will take a percentage off of each transaction.
Find the best method of payment for you (Shopify, PayPal, etc.) and give it a try.
So what are you waiting for? With the right tools and a little persistence, you could start making money from your marriage blog this month!
