5 Easy Ways You Can Earn From Your Content

It takes time, effort, energy, and sometimes money to write content. Surely then it makes sense to want to turn this effort into profit.

The good news is that with a plan in place, you can profit from content and build your bank reserves. Here are five more ways to earn from content.

1. Comparison Charts are a great way to earn.

Comparison charts are charts that essentially compare similar features in several products. You’ll often find them for electronics. For example, a comparison chart might compare five different smartphones in five different categories. If you represent a few affiliate products that are related you can create a comparison chart.

An example might be if you’re an information marketer and your niche is home organization. You might compare five books on home organization or five label makers. The chart makes it quick and easy for your readers to find what they’re looking for and when you provide affiliate links to the products you’re comparing you’ll generate click-throughs and sales.

2. Do you use affiliate schemes to earn commissions?

Do you give away a free report to build your email list? If so, perhaps a great way of monetising this free report is to include a list of resources in the appendix? You can then link these resources to affiliate schemes and earn from the click-throughs.

You might also include a few affiliate links in the body of the report.

3. Promote your opt in list with free downloads.

Many audiences love free downloads.

For example, continuing with the home organization website theme you might offer room organization checklists, an organize your pantry checklist, an organize your junk drawer checklist, an organize your bookshelves and so on.

These lists can be downloaded in exchange for an email address. It’s a great way to build your opt-in list and profit from email marketing.

4. Create a membership program.

Does your audience respond well to free reports? If so, consider creating a membership site where you provide a monthly report.

For example, you could create an Organize your home in a year membership site and provide members with a report that will help them organize one room from top to bottom each month. By the end of the year they will have a perfectly organized home. Charge for the membership and you earn a nice profit. (Note, you can also upsell in the report and offer your organization services or consulting.)

5. Drive traffic to your sales page with free downloads

Back to those free downloads. You can use them to drive traffic to your sales page. Continuing with the checklist example, you can include a call to action at the bottom of each checklist that sends people to your website sales page where you sell a book, products or even your organization services. It’s a great way to convert prospects into customers.

Take a look at your audience, your current business model and the content that your prospects respond to. Find a content monetization tool that fits your niche and start making more money from your content efforts.
