Many bloggers create and sell physical or digital products on their websites, such as ebooks, courses, merchandise, etc. Digital products are more scalable and don’t take as much work to put together. For example, with ebooks, you write the book one time, and then can sell thousands of copies year after year. Example of digital products for sale on a beauty blog An example of digital products sold on the Hot Beauty Health blog. How much can you earn? Again, this depends on the products you’re selling. But it can be anything from $4 for a book to $50 for merchandise items like T-shirts.
Online courses are a great way for bloggers to monetize their websites. As a topic expert, you can create an online course related to your niche and sell it on your website. There are even instances of people with successful personal blogs selling courses on “blogging tips” or “how to make money from affiliate category email list marketing.” Example of a blog course Example of courses available on the Authority Hacker blog. How much can you earn? On average, courses sell between $400 and $1,000 per sale. But of course, it depends on the niche and how much of a following you have.
Coaching and mentoring
Bloggers can easily pick up a cult following of aspiring bloggers who want to be just like them. With expertise in your niche, you can offer one-on-one coaching or mentoring services to help others learn. As someone who has mentored many EA Leads times, I can say from experience that it can be rewarding. Coaching and mentoring example Example of Women In Tech SEO’s mentoring program. How much can you earn? That depends on how well-established you are, but you can earn $50–$150 per hour on average. Pros Not only can you earn a solid income from coaching, but it can also be extremely rewarding to see former mentees build and develop their own successful careers.
