For many, it’s the cost that stops them from attending university, with sky-high fees and expensive living costs driving them to avoid studying for the degree they’ve always dreamed of.
One fun way to make money while you study is to create a lucrative blog. There are many different ways you can make money from blogging, but if you’re keen to take your blogging to the next level and earn an income that will really make a difference, then read on to find out more.
Collaborate With Your Fellow Students
A great way to make engaging content that other students will want to see, and which companies will be keen to sponsor, is to involve your fellow students. Try living in a student accommodation property that has lots of communal space, so you can interact and bond with some of the most influential and creative students in your area. In Edinburgh, premier student accommodation provider Collegiate has quality properties boasting communal study areas, gyms and in-house cinemas, meaning you’ll be able to bond with and create content alongside your housemates.
Work With A Student Blog Promotor
With the rise of student blogging, many companies have started offering services to help you to promote and monetise your blog. Student blogging agencies can give you access to the companies that want to collaborate with you, teach you tips and tricks to help you improve your site and organise guest blog posting opportunities for you. They will charge a fee for their services, which will eat into your profits, but if you select a dedicated PR specialist then they will be able to boost your returns and be more than worth their fee.
Keep Creating Quality Content
The most important thing to do when you’re blogging is to keep posting quality content. Regular, relevant content is vital for your site’s SEO, reader retention and more, so keep creating great posts, videos and images that your followers will want to see. Even if you can’t get a sponsor for all of your content, you should still post to keep readers interested. If you only post sponsored content then your followers will find you disingenuous and might stop following your blog, reducing your chances of earning money from it. As such, it’s important that you keep them happy by posting regular content they’ll enjoy. This can be a challenge, particularly when you’re busy with your studies, so consider offering guest posts to other popular student bloggers to save yourself time and develop your network within the student blogging community.
Blogging can be a fun way to earn yourself money while you study, without having to be tied to a traditional job. These tips should help you to boost the value of your blog and earn the money you need to create the lifestyle you desire.
