6 Ways to save money as a new blogger.

In 2021, do you want to start a new blog?

You could wonder whether you should invest in your new blog or start it for free.

Although you can create a blog for free, there are certain benefits to establishing a blog with some investment.

We can discuss those benefits in another article. But, for the time being, let me teach you how to save money as a new blogger.

If you're serious about making money from your blog, you should definitely invest in it. Even if you're not sure whether it'll be profitable or not, give it a shot. It will work if there is consistency and the proper content. However, as a beginner, spending money on a lot of stuff is not a good idea... you may work on this once you've gotten better at blogging.

Let's get started with the topic, shall we?

1. Vocal media!

This isn't a paid or sponsored post, but yes! If you're just getting started, start with vocal media.

You can write and publish stuff in your own name, exactly like you do on your blog! This will help you decide whether blogging is right for you, and it will also give you a head start on improving your writing skills as you save money for your own blog.

The power of the spoken word pays off! It pays up to 3.(something) dollars for 1000 views.

You can earn money and save it to invest in your site this way!

You may even attract an audience to your content and then use vocal to market your blog to that audience! Isn't it intriguing?

And writing on vocal is entirely free, all you have to do is sign up... I'll give the link here.

Also, take a look at "How I began Blogging?"

I wrote it on Medium; it works similarly to Vocal, but I don't encourage it because it only pays to certain countries; double-check that yours is one among them before signing up. Even if it doesn't pay, you should give it a shot because the UI is cool and can help you hone your writing abilities... Here is where you may join up for Medium.

2. Plan your Blog content.

Now, once you've set up your blog, you won't want to waste time thinking about what you'll write about or what will pique your readers' interest, because if you choose a monthly hosting plan, you'll wind up paying your dues with no profit from the site. So, before you walk on stage, whether it's by vocal, medium, or any other site you're familiar with, attempt to comprehend your content and analyze what goes on in the minds of your audience. It is not required that you do so using your own content. Look at other blogs that are comparable to yours and see whether stories are receiving more views or being highlighted in their blog. Make sure your content is planned and scheduled accordingly.

3. Pay annually.

When you're ready to create your own blog, you'll want to make sure you pick the correct host. Examine all of the features it provides and select the one that best suits your needs. But when it comes to the budget, don't go all out in the start and end up broke.

Pay your dues on an annual basis; some hosting services even allow you to pay once every three years... this allows you to save money while also earning money from the blog you started prior to paying the dues.

4. Advertisements and Referral credits!

Consider monetizing your site as soon as you get it up and running! The first thing you should consider is ads... yeah, affiliate marketing is a quick and easy way to monetize your blog... try to discover affiliate marketing sites that do not demand a certain amount of followers... this way, you can generate money right away.

Promote products or leave subscription links to earn referral credits on each product purchased... this can also help you raise your income and hence your chances of saving money.

5. Discounts

Discountss! Grab them as soon as possible! Every year, a large number of products, services, and tools offer significant discounts. You'll be missing out on something important for the success of your blog if you don't take advantage of these deals.

You may save a lot of money with these discounts and improve your blog to your liking while saving a lot of money from your site!

it's all happening at the same moment!

Check for discounts on any blogging tools you're considering purchasing!

6. Free Alternatives!

While blogging, there is a lot of editing and design work to be done... and even for your promotion posts, you may need to pay an external agency... but... "what if there are free alternatives to all of these?"

You heard me correctly!

Try to locate free alternatives to whatever you want to use, but keep in mind that paid services are sometimes worthwhile!

Here are a few freebies:

Tailwind is a free social media posting and scheduling tool.

Buffer is similar to this.

Invideo is a free video editor with no watermark. It's worth a shot!

Astra Wordpress theme: The most popular and free WordPress theme ever!

Get blogging and save your money!
