4 Ways You Can Boost Your Retirement Income With A Blog

Blogging is a great way to generate income during your golden years, sharing the wealth of knowledge, experience or ideas you have can actually be extremely lucrative.

The best part is, you can do it from the comfort of your home, on vacation or on the road. If you are retired, living on fixed income with little play room, following are only a few of the ways you can make money off blogging.

1) Sell Digital Products

If you have a unique set of skills, knowledge or information that has real value, creating a digital product to sell on your blog is a great way to not only establish yourself as an authority in the field, but generate income for years to come. The great thing about creating products to sell online is that you can sell purely digital products, such eBooks, access to a set of videos, or tutorials and advice. Once the product is created, you can resell and auto-deliver the product for years generating regular income easily.

2) Sell Advice And Consulting Services

Remember products aren’t the only thing you can sell, if for example, you have years of experience in business or finance, then offering consulting sessions via Skype is a great way to generate income easily, and on the schedule you wan tot keep. This doesn’t only relate to business, if you have a unique skill that few can boast, helping tutor others in it can be a great way to generate some extra income in fairly little time.

3)Affiliate Sales – Earn A Commission

Even easier than selling your own product, is promoting other products and collecting a commission on every sale. This is actually one of the most common, and valuable monetizing methods as there is no over head, or time investment in creating a product to sell. Sign for as an affiliate of the company you hope to promote, and post the special links they provide on your site or within your content to start making money today.

4) Pay-Per-Click Ads

PPC advertising is another way blogs are monetized, and although they can be extremely lucrative, don’t earn as much per client or user. The idea is simple, if a user clicks one of the links you get paid a certain amount, regardless of whether or not they bought something on the target site. Although this can be very lucrative, it’s important to take into account that you are driving users away from your site, which could mean you lose out on a larger affiliate sale and make only a few cents, so place your ads carefully.

Boosting your retirement income online can be done easily by setting up a blog, and writing about  your hobbies, travels, skills or interests. It’s important to make sure your posts provide useful information that people will be interested in and come back for more. Finally, monetize your website, using one or a variety of methods so you can make money while you sleep!
