You don’t have to be a financial advisor to start a finance blog. What you really need to do from the start is have a passion or interest in it and share your views on finance. Better yet, if you have any tips or methods to improve your finances, then your blog will become popular very quickly if you have a lot of value to offer.
But how can you really make money with a finance blog? It is very simple although there are several ways and variations.
The most obvious way to make money with a finance blog is of course selling your own services. If you are already a financial advisor or financial planner, then all you need to do is post some type of content on your blog that demonstrates your credibility in the field. Many financial advisors or brokers offer consulting through their content because they can be found easily through various online channels.
This gives you a huge advantage as the online world is vast and huge which means lots of opportunities to explore different segments of the market.
There are other ways to make money through a finance blog even if you are not a financial expert at all. You can post content and sell courses or services offered by others and earn bonuses or referral commissions. This is an affiliate marketing concept and is often used with other blogs in different industries such as food, fashion, or even travel.
You can even partner or joint venture with financial advisors and post content promoting them, while you receive commissions from their referrals. It’s just a simple concept actually.
Another very popular way to make money from a finance blog is advertising. Ever wondered how many magazines, TV or press or other media make a lot of money? Well they just get a lot of audience to see their material while having few ads and ads on the side. You can do the same with a finance blog if you have ads everywhere related to your niche.
Google Adsense is a method based on this concept. You basically allow Google to load your blog with ads and then you get paid a little bit every time someone clicks on it. All you need to do is drive traffic to your finance blog.
You don’t even have to write your own content. You can always hire writers who are financial experts or at least knowledgeable in the field to write your finance blog while driving traffic to your site and services. You can easily create a simple WordPress blog and start posting content and promoting it via social media or search engine traffic.
Once you have these things in place, all you need to do is get people to see your content and listings through your finance blog and you are on your way to boosting your finances at the same time!
