How to Make Money Blogging About Your Passion for Biking

They say that if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. And while any creative can tell you that is not at all true, it does ensure that the work feels meaningful. Which is why so many people are trying to make money today with whatever they are passionate about.

If you want to make money from the realm of biking, there are a number of ways to do so. One of the most accessible is by blogging about biking. You can create a blog in minutes using a website builder, and learning how to monetize a blog is fairly straightforward. As long as you are willing to put in the work, you can start making extra income by blogging soon.

Not sure you have what it takes? By following these simple steps, you will be able to join millions of people earning cash by writing about their passion.

Find Your Niche

Technically, biking itself can be the niche you choose. However, if you really want to be successful without hiring a team, you are going to have to figure out what you specifically can offer. This may be reviews of gear, how-tos, editorials about current biking news, or anything else.

While you may be tempted to go with the most lucrative niche, remember that your blog will succeed based on what you are able to put into it. Use your particular knowledge and skills.

Write Some Posts

All it takes to get your blog started is one post. But launching a blog with just one post makes it impossible to keep readers on your site. They have nowhere to go once they have finished your blog article. For this reason, you should write a few articles, publish some immediately and keep a few for the next few weeks. And make sure to take some good bike pictures, since each blog post should have at least one photo.

The reality is that you may not be able to fit blogging into your regular schedule and will have to take the moments you get. Blogs should go out regularly on certain days of the week, and having a backlog to post when you don’t have the opportunity to write will get you through tough periods.

Optimize It for Search Engines (SEO)

Search engine optimization (SEO) refers to the methods used to help search engines find your blog. This includes things like using search keywords in both your landing page copy and posts, writing about terms that people commonly search for, including metadata, and more.

SEO is not difficult to pick up, but it is always changing as search engines improve their algorithms. Occasionally having a look at SEO blogs online will ensure you don’t get left behind.

Decide on a Monetization Strategy (Or Strategies)

Monetization can refer to a number of strategies when it comes to blogging in 2022. The traditional technique of including ads on your blog still works, but unless you anticipate high volumes of traffic, it won’t be all that lucrative. Still, you should use it as a starting point.

    You can include sponsored posts, which companies pay you to host on your blog. Contact companies that sell gear, host events or do anything that relates to biking.

    You can also include affiliate links in your posts. This refers to speaking about products of which you approve and leading readers to the sites where they are sold. You will get a commission when your readers buy products after clicking your link. You can sweeten the deal by providing discounts for readers who use a unique code you provide. For example, if you were to write a post about your favorite bike designs, you could earn a commission if a reader bought one of the bikes you mentioned through an affiliate link on your blog.

    These are just some of the ways you can monetize your blog. Once you’ve gotten started, you will find that there are endless possibilities. If people love your how-to content, you can write a guidebook to selling in digital format. If people like your brand, you can start selling branded merchandise using techniques like dropshipping or print-on-demand.

    Monetization should not take just one form. Use various strategies to make extra income from your blog. If you are very successful with one or two of them, you could earn your primary income this way.

    Enjoy Yourself

    There’s another saying for people pursuing passion projects: do what you love and you turn your enjoyment into work. Too many creatives can tell you that making a living from their passion has robbed them of, well, passion. This is a risk but there are certainly plenty of people who have found a good balance.

    Always remember that you are pursuing this means of making a living (or just some passive income) because you love it. If you find that you’re not enjoying it, try to figure out why. It may be that you have started writing content that makes money rather than content you feel passionate about. Enjoying yourself should be one of your primary goals, and if enjoyment is no longer there, you might have to rethink your approach to blogging. And of course, don’t forget why you are writing in the first place: your love for biking.
