There is many a blogger who has gone online with hopeful dreams of one day being able to tell their boss to shove it because they can finally live off their blog’s income. While not many actually achieve this status many can claim that their blogging efforts does bring in a substantial income. I’ve tried many ways of using my blog to add to my general income and I always share anything that I have learned from those experiences with my readers. This post is yet another weapon in my money making arsenal.
They say that the one way you can make money on the net is for you to create a product and then sell it to your list. Well, I don’t have a product to sell and I can’t see myself creating one anytime soon, so I can’t go down that route. They also say that you can make money from selling other people’s product as an affiliate and while I am making some money doing that it’s not quite enough.
Then there are those who say you can make money by selling a service online. That got me thinking as to what services I could possibly offer that others would be willing to pay for. Then it hit me! The thing that I do best online is blogging and it’s a well known fact that heaps of people are venturing into the blogging world every day, and perhaps some of them would consider hiring me to set up their blogs for them. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before and if someone hadn’t approached me to design a website for them I probably wouldn’t be writing this post now.
As it turns out they took my advice and let me set up a blog for them which went live a little over a week ago. They were so happy with their new Madonna Di Montevergine blog they even asked if I was willing to help them out, at a price, if they ever needed something more done to it. Naturally I said I would be happy to help them out. If you think I did a great job you can show your appreciation by giving it a +1.
Now, I could offer my services via sites such as Freelancer, and while it would certainly give me more exposure it didn’t quite fit the sales model I had in mind. You see, I wanted to offer my services for free! No, I’m not crazy and I can actually make money setting up a blog for someone as long they meet certain requirements, those being that they buy their web hosting and blog theme from my affiliates. Luckily for me the FlexSqueeze theme made it really easy to set up a Hire Me page, one that looks both professional and allows me to highlight all the advantages of allowing me to set up their blog.
Do you have a Hire Me page? If you haven’t and you have a particular skill that others could use then you should consider setting one up as you could be missing out on a considerable amount of income.
