Whether you started a blog with the intention of earning money or not I am sure that has crossed your mind at some point.
And why not. What if I told you that you can earn up to $1000 or more in a month considering you get a large amount of traffic?
Yup, all you have to do is find the right channels to monetize your blog. You do not want to drive away users but rather help them out, right?
So here are 4 ways you can monetize your blog in 2020 that won’t negatively impact your site.
1. CookBook and Ebooks
Most food blogs get traffic because of the yummy recipes they give out and thus having an Ebook or CookBook on sale of the special recipes is one of the seamless ways to monetize the blog.
And why wouldn’t people buy it, they already trust you. Plus, writing can be really fun and you have full control over the pricing, discounts, etc.
Not to forget, writing it will barely cost you making it one of the most profitable business ideas for a food blogger.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Recipes need equipment and machinery and if you have been using a specific oven, stand mixer or hand mixer that you like then why not recommend your readers that as well.
Yup, tons of eCommerce sites such as Amazon, Flipkart, ShopClues, Myntra have affiliate programs.
Just sign up, link products on your page to their product pages and voila, you will soon be making a commission on every purchase.
Plus, you can link pretty much anything and everything thus increases your chances of earning a commission
3. Sponsored Posts
Not exactly my favorite method but it is one of the easiest ways to make money for any blogger.
The only reason I do not like it is the poor quality of content that is delivered sometimes plus, you are likely to be spammed with thousands of emails in a day.
But if you have the time to make edits and go through the emails to find genuine bloggers, you can earn anything between $50 to $400 or more per post. Not to forget, new posts mean your writing workload reduces.
Once your blog is well-known brands will automatically find their way to you. These collaborations can range from writing a review about their equipment or ingredient to even talking about it on social media
Now brands usually suggest a barter system which is great if the product is something you would like to use or you can also simply charge them up from.
The cost for a post can vary from 25k to 50k depending on your stats.
5. Recipe Development
Recipes are your forte so why do it just for the blog? There are tons of cafes, restaurants or bakeries out there looking for a recipe expert so they can stand out in the market with keto recipes or creating a pizza that is healthy.
This is where having a good social media presence can be helpful as the brands can easily find you. Otherwise, you might have to do a little hunting for clients.
