And, it has many rewards linked to it. Some of them being monetary are visible whereas most of them are social rewards and are yet invisible.
Here are some invisible rewards you gain through blogging:
- Blogging helps you to give sound voice to your opinion.

- It can even help you to promote yourself as a brand.
- It can get you an essence of satisfaction.
While most of the bloggers try and monetize their blog, I try and socialize it more because socialization leads to monetization at a higher level directly!
However sometimes, we work very hard on blogging, yet we are unable to get the deserves rewards. Yes, blogging is not just about writing, sharing and optimising. It is even about maximisation of outputs.
So here we will talk about some point which can help you gain maximum profit out of your skills.
The power of Social Media like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest lies in sharing your content on them and getting traffic from them. This referral traffic is free and is more productive in monetisation terms. My past experiences says that people coming from twitter often ends up clicking Adsense ads placed at correct positions.
Not just this, you can also make new clients and friends using these networks which can be fruitful for your blog too!
If you have been working for a while in blogging (say 2-3 years) then i am sure that you would’ve already learnt the basics of HTML, CSS and some part of PHP too. Bloggers from technical background may even have learnt about wordpress codex, theme development etc.
So you can try learning them a bit more and then can provide services in the form web-designing for small clients. WordPress can help you in it as it can be used to develop all kinds of sites. And, you can easily get -100 for a small static website of 5-6 pages.
SEO and Keyword Research
Some of the serious bloggers do a lot of research in terms of keywords, phrases and tags. And with time, you don’t even realise that you gained a lot of information about optimisation and keyword research.
You can use these SEO skills to earn money online as there are many people looking to buy those service online.
Online Product and Service Promotions
With time, even if your blog hasn’t got a lot of money, it might’ve got a decent amount of traffic. You can monetise it by doing product and service promotion for someone. You can even write reviews for companies and small businesses. In this way, you don’t just earn some bucks, but also increase your business relations.
There are many companies, who are looking for getting a blog being setup on a custom domain and then need some good writer who can write 10-20 posts per month for them.
You can approach them with some blogging-deals about blog etc. and you never know, you might succeed.
Or alternatively, you can provide them blog setup service etc. and then they can manage them on their own.
