Creating a store within your blog

When we think of making money through a blog, we tend to automatically think of advertising and sponsorship. This makes sense, after all, ads and sponsorship tend to be the primary way that any form of online influencer or writer makes money. Here’s everything you need to know about this potential money making venture!

When your blog has a huge following, a large volume of traffic passes through it, and a variety of businesses (ranging from large to small) will get in touch with you, offering to pay to advertise on your page, or offering to pay you to advertise one of their products. However, it’s important to remember that this isn’t the only way to make money through your blog. An alternative option (or something that you can do alongside receiving an income from ads and sponsorship) is to open an online store within your blog. 




Why You Should Consider This

If people are reading your blog on a regular basis, chances are that they’re interested in you. They’re likely to have similar tastes and interests to you, and they also already listen to you on a regular basis. This means that you are already in the perfect position to sell things to them. You know what they like, you know what they want, and you already hold influence over them. This could truly prove to be a big money spinner for you!




Creating a Store In Your Blog

Now, creating a store in your blog is a relatively simple process. You already have a website up and running, and chances are that you’ve already collaborated with a web designer or gained a little web design knowledge yourself in order to get to this point. All you need to do is get in touch with the same web designer you previously used (or get researching store creation yourself) and set up a section of your site for your store. This section should contain categoried pages of products with high-quality product photography and appealing product descriptions. Then use BlueSnap services to be able to take secure payments from your customers.




What You Should Sell

You may be asking yourself, “what should I actually sell?” Well, nobody knows the answer to this better than you. Try to keep it relevant to your blog and its aesthetic. If you blog on being minimalist and eco-friendly, you could set up your own range of bamboo toothbrushes, reusable water bottles, and mason jars to replace food packaging. This will all inevitably appeal to an audience who come to you because they are interested in bettering the world! If you blog about books, you could create your own range of bookmarks. Remember that sales from even small items can quickly mount up if you have a large and dedicated enough readership.



As you can see, there are alternative ways to make money from your blog, and if you intend to turn blogging into a full-time career, it’s a good idea to embrace as many blogging-based money making schemes as possible!
