30 PROVEN WAYS TO MAKE MONEY WITH YOUR BLOG- (Part VI)

16.  Teaching Program

The next step from writing tutorials would be to create an online teaching course. You could charge people a membership fee or a fixed amount for joining a course that you have set up.

These courses could be about anything and could include podcasts, videos, tutorials, etc. For example, you may be an expert photographer. You could set up a 2 week online training course detailing how to be a better photographer. You could make videos describing all of the different equipment that you might need, techniques that help achieve excellent quality photos, how to develop photos in a dark room, etc.

You need to make sure that the information that you offer to your paying customers is different to any free content that you offer on your site. You will receive a lot of complaints if you just charged people $100 for information that they just read in your free blog! You can only charge people premium prices for premium content.

17.  Live Workshops

The next step from creating an online teaching course is to have a live workshop. Live workshops let you interact with your audience and find out what they like about your website. People who come to your workshops get to meet you and ask you questions face-to-face.

Many people find these types of workshops appealing as they can get so much more out of it, than just following an online tutorial. This is why some people are prepared to pay a lot of money to attend these workshops.

As well as charging people for a ticket, you can make money in other ways from these gatherings. You can promote your own products or books at the end of each workshop. If you invite guest speakers to attend your workshops, then you can also collect 50% of everything that they make from promoting their own products.

You can also record the whole event and upload it to your website afterwards, perhaps advertising a future workshop.

Workshops aren’t hard to arrange. Many hotels have conference rooms that you can book for an event. Once booked, you have a date to promote to your readers of when the workshop is taking place. You just have to prepare some kind of presentation, and keep advertising your upcoming workshop.

18. Host A Webinar

Webinar’s are basically a live workshop online. People go on to Webinar’s to hear you talk about your specialist subject. This is great for people that live over-seas that can’t get to one of your workshops.

You make money from Webinar’s by charging an individual for a virtual seat on your presentation. They

pay to watch you perform your presentation online and they can interact during the process.

Webinar’s can incorporate power point presentations, web-cams, photos, microphones, polls, etc., making them fully interactive with your audience. Questions are usually left till the end of the Webinar, where each viewer has the opportunity to ask any questions that they want to you.

You don’t have to charge your audience anything to view a Webinar that you are conducting. You could just use it as a marketing tool promoting your website, but the majority of people often host an initial Webinar for free and then charge people for the subsequent ones.
