How to get a paid blogging job

Whenever someone is first introduced to the world of blogging, invariably the first question is “How do bloggers get paid?

They want to know how writing articles and posting them on a webpage can turn into cash. It is a fair question for sure. After all, if you are not familiar with the concept at all, then you wonder if it is a legitimate way to earn an online income.

Before I dive into the types of income streams that bloggers can create, it can be extremely beneficial to think through the goals, passions and struggles of your ideal audience. Once you understand the audience you want to serve, you’ll have a better idea which of the following income streams work best.

How Do Bloggers Get Paid?

The 2 Types of Blogging Income

1. Low Maintenance Passive Income – This is really the most ideal type of income because it can provide you and your family with freedom. This is most often recurring passive income streams that you can enjoy. This type of money happens without your personal involvement. It is scale-able.

Meaning that you can earn money without exchanging time for money in the moment. Some examples would include Google Adsense (or any paid for clicks campaign), membership sites, selling advertisement space, affiliate marketing sales, and even ebook sales.

If you can get paid for something while you are sleeping and it does not require you to exchange future time for money, then you have a low maintenance passive income stream.

The individual transactions are smaller but they happen more often and don’t require your time. Every morning when I wake up I can log into my Google Adsense account and see that I made money while I was sleeping.

2. Personal Involvement High Income – The idea with this strategy is that if something involves your personal time, it should cost more. After all, your time should be valuable to you, right?

If you offer personal consulting for your niche you should charge what your personal time is worth to you. It also matters the type of reach that you are able to get as well.

For example, you do not have to charge as much for a webinar with 100 participants as you might with a personal consultation. You would charge even more for live speaking events as well.

The ideal strategy would be to set up low maintenance passive income streams that meet your household budget so that you can spend your time in higher income events that require personal involvement. To be honest each has their benefits.

Passive income streams allow you to enjoy the freedom to use your time how you choose. Personal involvement income ideas allow you to interact with others and make a difference in other people.

How to get a paid blogging jobOver the past couple of years, I’ve seen the amount of income I make from blogging grow steadily. Some months now, it’s half my income. That can mean $5,000 a month or more from blogging.

How did I build a lucrative business as a paid blogger? Here’s how to make money writing.

  1. Start my own blog, which became Make a Living Writing.
  2. Promote my blog on Twitter and LinkedIn. Keep building my audience and learning about what makes a great blog post.
  3. Ask existing clients if they need a blogger, using my own blog as a sample. Entrepreneur magazine says yes.
  4. I become their anchor blogger, posting three times a week. This was summer 2009.
  5. Many small businesses approach me after seeing my Entrepreneur posts and ask me to blog for them as well.

I thought it would be enlightening to give those interested in earning from blog-writing fees a look at what it takes to earn a decent living as a paid blogger and how to become a freelance writer. The short answer is: Be able to write a lot of very powerful, well-linked, properly formatted, well-researched, short blogs. Never run out of story ideas.

Learn as much about the technical end of blogging as you can, so you can show clients you know the ropes. At this point, I’ve used WordPress, Blogger, Movable Type, you name it.

Then, pitch high-traffic sites and try to get on as a regular, paid blogger. From there, if you’re writing well, other clients who need help from a professional blogger will begin to find you. If you can understand what they need to say and the audience they are trying to reach, you can grow your stable of blogging clients.

Here’s a breakdown of my blogging activity for a typical recent month. Without breaking any confidences by telling you what any specific client pays, here is the amount of blogging I do for paid clients in a month:

  • 12 posts a month for Entrepreneur under my byline
  • 22 or so posts a month for BNET under my byline
  • 4 posts a month for a small-business-finance client, half-ghosted, half my byline
  • 4 existing blog posts rewritten for the same client, to conform to good blogging style, add images, links, etc.
  • 4 posts a month for another small-business-finance client – ghosted for business owner
  • 12 posts a month for a collaboration-software startup, mostly ghosted for their team.

Total blog posts: 58

Gawd, I’m tired just looking at that blog total! No idea how I do it. This figure, of course, doesn’t count the posts about writing I create for this blog…so you can add another 8-10 posts a month there. To sum up, I’m a blogging fool these days!

My point in showing you this is that even at decent rates, blogging is a grind. You have to create a lot of blogs to earn well. A background filing on daily deadlines is definitely a plus.

My other point is to say, don’t blog for $10 a post. There are living-wage blogging jobs out there. Anywhere a company or publication needs to talk to a specialized audience, there’s an opportunity. Blogging really can pay the bills.

Yes, this isn’t that moonshot way of earning that so many are dreaming of, where you monetize your own blog and make six figures on autopilot. This is an everyday, working-class sort of way to earn from blogging. Simply helping publications and companies communicate powerfully with their readers and customers.

While I really love writing long features, I’ve also kind of fallen in love with blog format. It’s short, sassy, fun, and connected. Guess that’s why I’ve ended up doing so much blog work lately.
