Blogging is one of the best ways to start your business. In part 1, I showed you the first popular option to turn the blog into a business on Shopify.
Here are the next options:
A photoblog is a great way to engage your target audience when content becomes increasingly visual. Users can post or “reblog” images and share captured or digitally created photos of their daily lives by using the sites such as Tumblr.
Photoblogs are similar to traditional blogs. They can have words along with images, such as words complementing the scene or captions. However, instead of word entries, the page is primarily lined with pictures.
For example, the founders of Lens Between Us, Zuzu Galova and Peter Sedlacik, travel around the world, take photos and share them on their blog. The trip started in Portugal. They want to document their travels like a diary. Thus, they can know exactly where they were if they looked back. In the beginning, they just intended to use this as a side project but Lens Between Us wound up going viral. That results in 33,000 followers on their Instagram. Then, they both head up the design studio Crea Crea.
If you find a concept you like, you should keep working on it and you can start a business.
You can share your insight through videos, usually of yourself via vlogs, or video blogs. There are various budding vloggers in YouTube including makeup artists and comedians. They make up this rapidly growing segment of the blogging community.
For example, a popular vintage-inspired vlogger known as Emelyne Behr has nearly 160,000 followers on her YouTube channel. Besides writing for her personal blog, she records videos of baking and beauty tips. She usually uses primarily to share recipes. She grows a connection with her audience by pairing the two platforms. In addition, she also promotes her content on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook. These social media remind people to check out her content.
The brands are recognizing the power of vloggers and are more willing to work with them instead of the competition is getting steeper on YouTube. It’s much easier for vloggers to get sponsorships and brand deals with companies.
Behr gives the advice that you should be yourself. you will stand out by creating videos that excite you and express your talents and passion. Additionally, you’re able to engage with your audience.
Earning income from your blog
You can succeed as a well-known and well-respected blogger with the right mindset, dedication, and effort. The founder of Trump Excel named Sumit Bansal, the bloggers can make a profit in many ways:
Providing digital services/products
Providing your own relevant services or products is one of the quickest ways to make money.
You can offer an e-book or a short video course to your audience and make money if you’re an expert in a niche. Because you can keep all the money you make, this can be extremely profitable.
For instance, Bansal, an expert in Excel spreadsheets offers online training courses to consumers. Besides, you can offer to create graphics for your followers, if you’re a designer who blogs about Adobe Photoshop.
Selling affiliate products
Instead of creating your own products to make a profit, you can attract businesses looking for partnerships to promote and sell their brand with a decent number of subscribers.
You can get a commission on every referral sale by pitching other people’s products if you use many amazing affiliate networks to refer their products and make a cut on every sale.
