Make Money Blogging
So if you have a blog, then you are probably trying to make money bloggingwith that blog, right? I am usually the first person to help people learn how to actually do this. It is a great way to make some extra income and it is a great way to be able to free yourself from the ordinary 9-5 job! I know, I was blasted out of the work force about 2 years ago when I had to turn to blogging. It is a great way to make money!
However, if you have started a blog, then you probably already know that it is going to take some time in order to make some money. It’s sad, but true. You have set up a great blog that other people would benefit from, but you are nowhere near anyone’s radar. You are not even close to the first page of Google, and your social media traffic is far from great. You are learning the hard fact that, in order to make money blogging, it does take some time.
Another Way To Make Money…Blogging?
Most all great bloggers are great writers. Now, I am far from great at writing, but I like to think that I have some good articles and blogs floating around the net somewhere that people like to read!
This is mostly true of all bloggers. You know how to write. Now, don’t worry, I’m not fixing to tell you to try and get a freelance job at Elance or Odesk. Competing with others for the price of your writing is ridiculous in my book. If you are a great writer, then why would you price an article for someone for $2? A great writer gets top dollar!
I don’t think that I have ever done this, but I now want to let you in on some information about how to make some extra money. This has nothing to do with your blog either!! I know, I know, I have probably let some of you down, but this is a legitimate way to earn some extra cash while waiting for your blog to bring in the big bucks!
As I said before, you don’t want to under-price your writing. So what you are going to do…yes I said you were going to do it, lol, is to write something!
Write about something to do with your blog, write about something that will help someone succeed at something, or simply write a funny short story. I don’t care, but just start something today!
If you are a blogger, and you haven’t tried to create anything like an ebook yet, then you need to do this anyway!
How Will This Help Me To Make Money Blogging?
Well, here is how it will help you. You ask me, “Why do I need to create an ebook?” You need to create an ebook because this is what you are going to do. You are going to upload it to Kindle!
Write your ebook just like I said before. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, and it can be anywhere from 12-3000 pages. Once you finish, go to Amazon Digital text Platform and create an account. Next, you upload your content in one of the many supported formats. Amazon recommends uploading HTML files, but you can upload your Kindle content as a Word document, text file or PDF. (PDFs are not recommended as there are sometimes formatting problems with PDFs on the Kindle.) You will find step-by-step instructions for publishing your content at Amazon’s Digital Text Platform. within a day or so after uploading, your book or other content should be available in the Kindle store.
How Much Do You Get Paid?
You set the price for your digital products, and Amazon pays a 35% to 70% royalty on all sales. Currently, prices from $.99 to $2.98, and those greater than $9.99, receive a 35% royalty. A 70% royalty (minus a few cents as a download fee) is paid on Kindle ebooks priced from $2.99 to $9.99.
Now, I know what you are thinking. How am I going to make money on this? How can someone even find this ebook?
You will. After you upload your product, you can enroll it into something called KDP Select. This is a new option to make money and promote your book. When you make your book exclusive to Kindle for at least 90 days, it will be part of the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library for the same period and you will earn your share of a monthly fund when readers borrow your books from the library. You will also be able to promote your book as free for up to 5 days during these 90 days.
More Ways That Creating An Ebook Will Help You To Make Money Blogging:
- You can use this on your site. You can use this to help build your list for free or you can use it to make money blogging. Sell the ebook on your site. Do whatever you want to with it! It’s your’s, you are just letting Kindle sell it for you.
- Kindle Traffic- Make sure that you put your site links in the ebook so that the people that actually purchase your book on Kindle can come and visit. This is going to also help you make money blogging as well, because now you have a different traffic source!
Don’t Try To Make Money Blogging At First
It is going to take some time for your site to make money. Use other alternatives to help you start earning that extra cash while you are waiting. So why not create something that you can sell somewhere else AND use on your blog too? So get out there and get yourself published and come back and tell me about it! Hey, who knows? I may want to sell it here!
