1. Create or Promote a Product
A great way to earn money is to produce and ship a product and make some extra money from that. It can be a digital (downloadable) product too; such as e-book or even an online course. Creating your own digital or physical product as a blogger should be an exciting path to online success.
Types of products a blogger might create and sell:
· Retail (or wholesale) merchandise
· Ebooks, Webinars, Online Courses
· Software, Plugins, Apps
· Video, Audio, DVD
Note: a successful product launch also begins with great timing. You probably will feel a sense of urgency in introducing your service or product, but rushing could also foil your ambitions. If after second thought, postponing your product launch until everything is perfectly in place could mean the difference between experiencing no traction or receiving glowing reviews.
