How Do Tech Blogs Make Money?
Can tech blogs make money? Yes they can – and in many different ways.
Let’s look at the top ways tech blogs can make money blogging.
1. Affiliate Marketing
A tech blog lends well to affiliate marketing since the entire niche is about reviewing tech products.
As a blogger, you can sign up to Amazon to do some affiliate marketing with Amazon products.
With Amazon, you can find the right tech product and promote that on your blog.
And some of the best ways to review that product is to write an in-depth guide on the product.
For example, your post would have information like:
- What the tech product is
- Why you need it
- How it works step by step
- Compare to other similar products
- The best things about this tech product
- Your recommendation
When you provide a reader with that type of information, you can help them make a decision to buy that product you are recommending.
2. Display Ads
If your tech blog gets a lot of traffic, one thing you can start doing is displaying ads.
For example, Cool Mom Tech is a big blog with a lot of traffic and they monetize their blog one way by displaying ads.
3. Sponsored Content
Sponsored content is when brands share their product with you in exchange of a review of their product on your blog or on social media. You get paid for that sponsored content.
For example, Kris of Little Teach Girl uses sponsored content to make money with her blog.
4. Sell Your Own Product
One of the best ways to make money with your blog is to create your own products. Instead of promoting someone else’s products with affiliate marketing or relying heavily on traffic, you can create a product for your audience.
This is what Beth of Techie Homeschool Mom does.
How do you create products to sell?
One of the things you need to know is your audience’s challenges and problems. What do they need help with the most and why do they come to your blog?
If you can find the answer to those then you have your product idea.
You can survey your audience or ask on social media with market research questions.
From there you should start an email list to start nurturing your audience to trust your advice and look at you as the go-to resource in your niche.
Creating your product can be easy or more challenging.
The easiest is creating printables and the more challenging is creating a video course.
In either case, having a platform to sell your products is essential. I personally use Teachable and host all my courses on that platform.
How Do I Start a Tech Blog?
If you love all things tech, then you can start a blog all about tech stuff.
Or, you can start a lifestyle tech blog with varied topics – tech, parenting, and travel.
In any case, the important thing is to start your blog and get your blog online to start aging. The older your blog is the faster it can start ranking in Google and gaining some amazing blog traffic!
