No Need To LOOK For Income!
My journey since joining Wealthy Affiliate has been absolutely incredible and I just wanted to share some insights with you all about earning from your websites.
When I first started blogging I didn't quite understand how to make money with my websites, I read about it and it seemed so HARD.
What I have now come to realize is that once your website is a few years old and you have some regular traffic as well as some content that has ranked you don't need to try so hard to make an income.
I have found recently that people come to me and ask me for things and I can decide whether I want to or not.
Here are some of the cool things that have come my way this week (without me having to do a thing):
1) An email marketing service has contacted me asking for a review on my online marketing website. We negotiated and I am going to be paid $175 for that review plus I get to use their service free for a year.
2) A marketing company has contacted me and asked me to review a microwave oven. I get the oven for free valued at R2999 (appr $230) and I am being paid R1500 (appr $115)
3) An SEO company contacted me and asked me for a text link on my mommy blog home page and on my addiction website and they have paid me $250 for these links for 6 months, with the possibility of continuing - we'll see when the time comes.
These are not services that I offered on my websites, in fact I don't really even have a price list. The truth is that I just sort of make things up as I go along.
The point here is to keep going with your website even if you are not sure now how to make money. Once you have traffic, a social presence and some content ranking in your niche you will be able to make money in so many different ways and it will come to you.
The work you put in today will pay off big time in a few years time. It is an investment in your future!
Have a happy Friday!
