101+ Hobbies That You can Make Money With Today In Some way or Another
Everyone needs a hobby
! Hobbies are gifts from God unto men so they will have something to do when they have nothing else to do!
So you can have something to do that you enjoy doing. And hobbies are such a great way to relax and be a great pastime. But more than this, hobbies can also be a great way to earn you a passive secondary income to supplement your main one. Yes, you can make money from your hobbies and here I want to talk and share about some of the hobbies I know of that you can make money from today. After all, that's why we're all really here on SEOClerks isnt' it?
Okay I know this one is so obvious
but a lot of people do blogging
just because they enjoy doing it! Sure, it can be lucrative
as well. Because there are many ways in which you can earn money with a blog. Just the other day our man Razzy posted a great article here on How to make money from your blog without ads
and that has some great ways you can make money from blogging (and a couple more from me in it) without putting ads on your site. But let's talk about some more ways you can earn money from a blogging hobby!
How to Earn Money from A Bloggin' Hobby?
How to Get Started Blogging?
- Placing Ads on your site
Okay so firstly, the most obvious way to earn money from your blog and bloggin' hobby is to place ads on it. You'll need to be getting some nice traffic to it to actually earn anything worth wtiting home about but with a good blog, a popular blog in a big niche, that's not too hard to do (not is it anyways really). The downside is you'll be sending people away from your blog.
- Affiliate Marketing
Another way to earn from your blog is to place products on it that you're an affiliate for. That way when ever someone clicks through and purchases it, you'll earn a commission from it. You could be an Amazon affiliate or with someone else. And you'll also need a fair bit of quality traffic and to make a lot of sales before you can earn a lot but it can be lucrative. The downside to this again is that you'll be sending people away from your blog and not neccessarily making anything if they don't purchase that product.
- Selling Ad Space
Another way if your blog has a lot of traffic and some good domain stats and metrics is to sell ads on your site such as banner ads or or even text ads in your site somewhere such as in the side bar or in the footer. Sitewide ads or even on certain pages etc. This can be quite lucrative if you take payment in full upfront for 12 months or something and sell a lot of them. The downside is you'll have all these ads on your blog for a certain time and that means sending people away from your blog again. Plus Google doesn't like it at all if it thinks you're doing this and can smack you for it.
- Create A Subscription Service
This is where the money is at right now in blogging. A lot of big blogs are doing this now where instead of just posting content for all to read. They provide you with exclusive content of some kind that is a lot more valuable to know about. Such as a guide on how to do something like set up a successful affiliate network, social site or even blogging tips etc etc. And all you have to do is create some content that people would have to pay for and then charge for a subscription to this content they pay every month for or something. The great thing is, you don't have to send them away from your blog and can actually send them back to it through the links within your exclusive subscription content.
How to create amazing high quality blog posts?
- 1. Pick a Niche You are Interested/Passionate About.
- 2. Start a Blog using your own new site or even WordPress/Blogger.
- 3. Learn as much as you can about that niche from other successful blogs within it.
- 4. Focus on posting the highest quality blog posts on your blog.
Here's a trick I like to use! So I'll search my main targeted keywords and look and read all of the sites that are ranking say top 10 or even top 20 for it. I'll then read it all maybe in one day or over the course of a few days while researching. Sometimes I'll skim but the point is just to see what kind of content those sites have for that keyword. Then what I'll do is take notes about it while I'm looking at each site and then digest everything. Then I'll basically just regurgitate everything I've just learned about it into a new blog post on my blog about it. Which will have everything more or less those other blog posts had on it and more. But in my own way, in a way that I think and feel is more helpful, more insightful and more informative than all of those blog posts combined. What I'll actually do is look for problems people are having with it too and then research some working solution to these and provide them along with in the blog post. That is a winning formula for me and I always see much more engagement and shares on my blog posts when I take the time to research an article like this. It takes more time but definitely better in the long run!
How Much Can You Earn from Blogging?
How much you earn depends on how successful your blog is. According to Pro Blogger's monthly blog earning reports. Approximately 10% of bloggers make next to nothing. 28% make under £7 per month. Up to 25% make between £7 to £70 and 17% make from £70 to £350. While 7% earn from £350 to £700, 9% make from £700 to £7000 and 4% make £7000+ Again, which percentage you're in will largely depend on just how successful you are with your blog and your hobby. But if it's something you really enjoy doing, on something you are interested in / passionate about, you can't help but be in one of the larger brackets and you should be after a few years (or less) if you work hard at it.
Okay this is getting quite long now so I'll close up on this one here for a while and then do another post on something else, another hobby that you can make money with. Hopefully I'll be able to do a long series of these as there are quite a lot of hobbies that people have and each one can be turned into a cash cow if you just know how!
