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

19.  Be a Consultant

You could monetize your blog by offering consultancy in your specific niche. You need to have a large number of followers and have built a good reputation in your field for this method to earn you money. You can offer oneon-one consulting to people over the phone or via Skype for a fixed rate. People would be willing to pay a premium for this service as they are paying for your undivided attention for an hour or more.

For example, you have built a reputation as being an expert in health and fitness and have a successful blog talking about methods of weight-loss and healthy eating. You could offer a consultancy service, where for one hour a day people can arrange to talk to you via web-cam to plan out a personal tailored exercise regime. You

might charge $100 for the hour and the individual might not need to contact you until the next month.

As previously stated, you do need a reputation for this to generate you any money. This is not a method for a start up website, but it could be something to aim for in the future as you grow your website.

20.  Find Sponsors For An Event

If your website involves organizing events, such as a workshop (See Method #17), or a weekly podcast, etc., you could find companies to sponsor them. Then at the beginning and at the end you would have to promote the sponsor.

You see this type of advertising a lot on TV and in Sport. Many TV shows are sponsored to generate income.

The advantage of this method is that it gives website owners more options to monetize each aspect of their site. Advertisers are attracted to sponsorship deals on high traffic websites as it allows them to reach a targeted audience.

21.  Selling Services (Hire Me)

This is often the reason why many people start a website in the first place. You might have a profession in the real world, such as a stock trader, architect, life coach, etc. You could build a website advertising your services to increase your client numbers. Visitors can pay for your professional services through your website and receive your help, as in the previous example this could mean full financial planning and strategies on stock trading.

Obviously, with this method you only get paid when you are working. A great way to find clients is to have your own ‘Hire Me’ page on your website.  That way, people can see that they can hire you to help them out.
