You may not see an immediate ROI (return on investment) from blogging, but the good thing is its pretty much passive income when you start getting some traction. Blogs can generate income based upon the amount of traffic they get. If you’re volumes come up then you can get advertisers or use Google AdSense to start generating money.
You can promote your affiliate links on your blog or your social media accounts. Just make sure you promote something that’s going to actually add value to your followers. And remember to let your blog readers know that you may receive compensation for the affiliate links in your articles.
You can promote sponsored products via video marketing. You can do video reviews and tutorials on YouTube and monetize it with ads and affiliate links! See #2 regarding the need to disclose the fact that the links may generate for you.
Social media influencer
When you’ve got a considerable following on social media, and you get pretty good engagement rates on your content, then you’re technically a social media influencer. You can easily command premium rates from brands who want to do business with you.
Social media manager
Not all businesses know what to do with their social media accounts. As a social media manager, you have the opportunity to make a significant impact on businesses. The great thing is you can have many different clients at the same time because it’s relatively easy to automate social media activity!
Sell information products
Selling eCourses and eBooks are very popular nowadays. They’re relatively easy to create or if it’s easier you can just outsource the projects to freelancers who can write faster and better than you.
If you’re interested in freelancing online - like writing, designing, building apps and websites, etc. – then you should check out sites like Upwork (https://www.upwork.com) and Freelancer (https://www.freelancer.com).
Note, however, that these are global marketplaces. So, you’ll have people from all over the world competing on price and skill. If you want to set yourself apart from the competition and you’re extremely confident in your skills, then don’t be afraid to bid rates you know you deserve!
