Blogging Freebies That Can Make You Money.
People always asking me how do you make money with blogging.
Do you just write a post and get paid?
Yes, that is one of the ways I get paid to blog, but we can talk about that later.
Today we are talking about these freebies ideas that can help you make money with your blog.
These are the top
ideas that I have seen other bloggers offer in many different niches over
Therefore I followed their lead and used these Ideas to grow my blog and my income.
These are gathered from top bloggers in bunches of different niches so
that you can all get an idea of what seems to be working the best across the
You can choose to use all them on just one it’s up to you… Hopefully, this will help to get some of the wheels in your head
It’s also key to make sure that the freebie that you are offering is
going to be helpful.
Remember: what works for one person might not work for you. Just because
another blogger is killing it with a mini-course doesn’t mean that kind of a
idea would fit your audience.
Knowing your reader, your people, and their needs specifically will be
the key here in making the most out of the Freebie that you offer.
And don’t forget – if it doesn’t work, try again!
It is important to keep trying to find the perfect fit for your
people and for the freebies that you have to offer.
You can create printables that will help your people take the next steps
on the email freebie that they just received.
This could be an outline of an
email challenge, a page of notes, a blank journal page, or instructions with an
example filled out of how to use the freebie you gave them.
There are no rules here! Just add extra value to your people!
I say a “mini-course” because I don’t want you to think that you should
be giving away a full course for $7-12!
A “mini-course” could be 1-3 lessons that will still provide value to the reader without being as overwhelming as a full course.
This also gives the bonus of an extra place to go after they finish the mini-course:
they will have the option to buy the next step up!
Never underestimate the power of video!
This has never been truer than right now!
Create a few videos to show your reader how to get the most out of
Make a video for each day of an email challenge that they can
only get from the ideas.
Add bonus tips and tricks to add to what you give
away in a post or freebie.
This can get a little technical, but it will likely convert very well!
4. Video Course
This is another option: make a specific course that is just based on
videos you’ve done about the topic of a freebie.
1-3 videos walking them
through some easy steps is all you need.
You can do a screen share video showing how you do something
technical. You can share how you meal prep.
Show how you decluttered a room in 5 minutes (real time).
This doesn’t have to be difficult.
But since it’s a video course, this might
be a $12+ idea! Bonus if you have a course to sell after this one!
5. Ebook (or physical book)
Ebooks can be made as round-ups of your own popular posts on a topic.
The freebie could be the first chapter of a book you wrote and the idea
could be the whole book.
Making and printing a book on Amazon is fairly easy and people put a
high value on books that they can hold in their hands for the most part.
you will likely make less money per sale if you did it this way.
This goes back to the printables idea but takes it a step further.
especially useful if your freebie is an email challenge.
Having a workbook to
help people along with your email challenge is very valuable.
Just add a few easy-to-make pages from Word or Excel spreadsheets
and then it’s easy to go from there.
Or you can get more creative and make
the workbook in Photoshop or Canva.
But that’s something more specific for
a graphic designer.
Keep it simple to start!
This is another one that piggybacks off of the idea of a workbook.
A guide that will give more details or
more tips and tricks to help your new reader through their freebie will be very valuable.
Maybe it’s a guide about the steps to take after they finish getting their use out of the freebie.
It could be an easy print out of what steps they need to
Again – the key here is simplicity! The simpler, the better!
No matter what your niche is, having a planner page is easy to make
and is viewed as a high-value thing to your audience.
You can easily create a
page using templates from Canva and editing them to your niche.
Or you could create your own in Word or Excel.
Making a planner that is specific to the needs of your reader is
Spend some time making this freebie and it will pay off.
9. Quote pages
People LOVE inspirational quotes.
Wall prints that they can print out at home and hang are in high-demand.
This is a bit more graphic-heavy so you might need to hire a designer
But you can also make some on your own just using some of the
pretty fonts in PicMonkey and Canva!
If you did choose to hire a designer, you can check them out on
Fiverr.com or Upwork.com.
People love to see what worked for you. Do you have a template of an email that worked well for selling?
Do you have the secret to having a child who loves to read?
Are you an organizational wizard who has unlocked the secret to folding fitted sheets?
Do you have the script to use when you want
to have a tough talk with your husband?
Share them! People are looking for the easy way to do things – give it to
If you’ve found the way to spell something out in easy steps, exact
words, or magic formulas, share it!
If you have a small service (emphasize small here – your time is
valuable and should be treated as such!) that you offer, you can offer that as a
Maybe you will do a video review of someone’s website, look over
someone’s budget, help someone upload things to the cloud, convert images
to PDFs… anything!
You can offer your services as an entryway to get your newest readers

This is also a great way to jumpstart the process of getting them into paying clients if you offer more or higher-end services as well.
It will introduce new readers to the amount of help that they can get
Remember – it’s always easier to make a customer into a repeat
customer than to start over again!
12. Mastermind/ membership sites
This is a way of making recurring income from your readers by
providing exclusive information to them through a mastermind group or a
Provide recurring value to them through a private group or as a way to
get one-time pricing on a membership site that is usually priced higher for a

But this is also a way to make money not just once, but repeatedly from a
