Make Money Blogging When You Don’t Have a Blog?
So, is it true that you can actually make money blogging even if you’ve never started a blog of your own? The answer yes…
Now this comes from a completely different stand-point than what most people have in mind when they think of how to make money blogging. You won’t make as much, but the reality is… you can bring in a little extra on the side that can continue to increase over time.
Here’s one way to make money blogging without a blog.
What you’ll actually be doing is writing content for other people’s blogs. These people will become your clients and they can be anyone from individual small business owners to large corporations.
Even though most people have their own blogs and use them to either brand themselves or market their own products, many business owners don’t do the writing themselves. You’ve heard of outsourcing, right? Well… you can get clients of your own who use your blogging or writing services. You’ve now become the “outsourcee” and you’re able to make money blogging for someone else.
Let’s imagine for a moment that you wake up extremely ambitious one day and you decide you want to make money blogging, but you don’t have your own blog. What do you do?
You join one (or more) of the sites that offer internet marketing services (specifically, article writing) for people who want to out-source. You’ve decided that you’ll charge $10 for every 500 word article that you write, and you land ten jobs for the day. You just made a quick $100.
I know this is very little money compared to what you usually hear about most people make money blogging, but for a college student who could use some extra cash from time to time, blogging for others could be ideal.
Keep in mind… At just $10 for a 500-word article, your clients aren’t expecting a masterpiece. As long as the information you give is clear, accurate, and on topic, you’ve provided your clients with the service they paid you for, but always give your best.
In addition to writing the article, your job is to make sure that you deliver on time and stay in touch with your clients. If an emergency happens that causes a delay, don’t just hope your client won’t notice. If you fail to deliver on time, it won’t be good for your business, and they won’t be likely to use you again. A quick phone call explaining the dilemma will usually satisfy your client.
So, now that you understand how you can actually make money blogging without having a blog, is it really worth your time and effort? The answer is yes. You won’t make as much money when you’re blogging for someone else, but it’s really simple and it works. Do a decent job and you’ll get paid for it.
And if you want to step it up and really enjoy the process, be proactive and find clients yourself. Look for businesses within a niche that you have an interest in. With some work and effort, you can actually find company’s who either don’t have a blog or aren’t keeping up with the blog they do have. Most businesses don’t have the time and often don’t have people designated to do that type of work. You can make money blogging by becoming the person who regularly maintains the blogs of these businesses.
So why take the time to search out businesses within a niche that you enjoy? When you blog about a topic that you really like or are familiar with (even if it’s not yours) it will be a lot more fun for you. You can write more quickly and could earn a quick $100 before lunchtime.
With a little hard work, and a decent sized clientele, you could be earning around $200 a day. Multiply that by five days a week, for a half day’s work and you’re earning an easy $1000 a week. And the best part, as long as you have an internet connection, you can work from anywhere!
