Although there are a ton of ways to make money as a mom blogger, but I highly recommend you to give a try to the following 4 money making strategies.

4 proven ways to make money as a blogger in 2017
#1. Offer services
Let me tell you the quickest way to make money as a mommy blogger: start offering services.
You can make money from day 1 if you offer services to your audience.
There are so many mom bloggers out there who offer freelance services like writing, designing, private coaching, speaking engagements etc.
So what kind of services can you offer?
Well, it depends majorly on your niche (read industry).
If you’re a food blogger, you can get contracts to supply different dishes for occasions to a specific client or a restaurant. If you’re a photography blogger, you can take your client’s birthday photos or wedding photos to make money literally from day 1.
Are you getting me?
If you’re so desperate to make money as a mom blogger from day 1, offering services is probably the fastest way to succeed.
#2. Create and sell online courses
Online courses are becoming insanely popular.
They offer a TON of value to the students who enroll. They are also great for making huge profits.
Just have a look at Ramit Sethi. Then there’s Derek Halpern and Amy Porterfield.
All these guys make millions of dollars every single year by offering courses to their students. Have a look at the following screenshot which shows that Ramit Sethi from I Will Teach You To Be Rich (aka IWT) makes 95% of his income from selling online courses.
Here’s my question to you. You are already teaching some useful things through your content in your blog. Then why not create a paid online course?
Just set up some x-week course through automated emails. And how much you can get profit by selling your online courses depends on your brand authority, how many people purchase your course etc.
For a sample, you can try offering free pdfs which has valuable content to gain trust from the users and also to know how many are really interested in your products.4 proven ways to make money as a blogger in 2017. A guest post by Rahul @ pvariel.com Click To Tweet
#3. Recommend products that you love
Pat Flynn – whenever I hear about affiliate marketing, the guy “Pat” comes to mind almost always.
He’s the one who earns over $100,000 every single month from affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is undoubtedly the best way to make passive income from your blog. But the only thing about affiliate marketing is that it is NOT easy. It takes a lot of time to master the art of selling.
Here are few affiliate marketing tips just in case if you’re thinking about using it to make money as a mom blogger.
- Focus on promoting only those products that you love and use. That way, you can better explain your audience why should they buy the products that you recommend. Make sure to use affiliate links (and disclose them with a quick note saying “this is an affiliate link and I make some money if you buy using it”) while promoting those products.
- Write product reviews. Don’t be too generic. There are a lot of bloggers like Anil Agarwal who are successfully making money by writing great product reviews. Remember if you write complete positive about any product then you lose trust of your customers. Write your genuine opinions. If you have used that product then you can show video or images if any problem you faced (to show your audience how the products help).
- Find what other successful bloggers are doing. Find out how they are promoting their affiliate products. You will learn a lot!
#4. Offer 1 on 1 coaching
Donna Merrill is a great example who’s monetizing her blog by offering “mentoring” aka 1 on 1 coaching.
So how it works?
You offer 1 on 1 coaching usually through a Skype call, email chat or directly (depending upon your convenience) and you get paid upfront. Sounds amazing, right?
Offering 1-1 coaching is the BEST way to make money when you’ve loyal audience.
It helps you in 2 ways.
- To make more money (in your spare time)
- To help people to build successful business
It’s a lot like “fun with profits”, right?
Final verdict about making money as a mom blogger
Making money as a new blogger is NOT hard. There are a ton of mom bloggers out there who are successfully making money in their spare time. Not only blogging allows you to spend quality time with your family but it also helps you earn some extra income. So why not give it a try?
