The chances are good that you have learned a lot about blogging by now — so much that you feel like you are an expert! There are many people out there who do not have the training that you have had. They think of the word “blog” and feel very intimidated about running one themselves. That means that you can make even more money by offering to set up blogs for people and businesses!
There are a few different ways you can make this happen. You can actually do all of the work; choosing a domain name, doing the market and keyword research, setting up the script, writing the content, and setting up the monetization. You can even maintain the blog on an ongoing basis for your clients. This can net you quite a bit of ongoing work and income! It all depends on how you present your offer, and what type of clients you go after (for instance, you will probably make more setting up a blog for an “offline” client than you will for someone who wants a blog geared toward affiliate marketing).
If you find that you enjoy writing the content but not the technical aspects of it so much, you can earn money by writing blog posts for people. You can even outsource this writing to others, and act as a middle-man. It’s definitely possible to earn some excellent income as a ghost-blogger.
You may be wondering how you would go about setting up this type of business. First, people are going to want to see examples of your work. You might want to showcase your own blog so they know what you’re capable of. Make sure they understand that you will take their wishes into account, and that your own blog is reflective of your personal style. Then, you may want to make a website offering your services. You can drive traffic to this website by putting it in your signature file on Internet marketing and business forums, and by talking about what you do on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
As you start to get some clients, they will hopefully be so pleased with your work that they refer you to other people. It’s a great thing when you become a blogging master since everyone wants to run their own blog these days! You can even purchase reseller hosting and offer hosting packages for people so their blog is completely hands off for them. The sky is truly the limit when you take this on as another stream of income for yourself.
