6 Small Business Ideas for Bloggers

Blogging is hard work, and for some, it may be all for little or nothing in return. I always like to look at the big picture, and looking at the Blogging Industry, I know it will be around forever, but will continue to evolve. And that is why I keep thinking of additional ways of making money from home. Which has pushed me to writing this post about 6 Small Business Ideas for Bloggers. I hope someone out there finds this post and the small business ideas useful.




Small Business Ideas for Bloggers
Blogging Coach

The Blogging Coach field has taken off with a bang, starting from the US and now in the UK. There are so many coaches in various fields, and it may look like a saturated market, and it is, but I believe there is always space for Quality. For you to be a Coach of something, means you are a Guru in that field. It means you are successful in what you do, and you want to guide, inform and educate others on how to achieve the same level of success.

The issue I have with many Blogging Coaches and Coaches in general, is that many of them are not successful in what they do. You can’t teach me how to earn £3,000 a month from blog, when you are not earning half of that. The same way you can’t help me get up to 20,000 monthly views on YouTube, when you are only getting 1000 views a month. Many of these Coaches just sell the dream, and take your money. That is a scam, the success dream is free.

Before you pay a Coach to lead or mentor you, make sure the person has a successful track record in the niche. A good Blogging Coach would put the success where the mouth is!


Ghost Blogger

Apart from writing your blog, you could also write for other blogs as a Ghost Blogger. The way it works is, you write articles for other websites and blogs and the blog owners go on to publish the articles as their own, with no reference to you or your blog. I know a couple of people who are Ghost Bloggers and they make a decent income from it. If you are super creative and a good writer, this might be the best job for you.



I am a copywriter. I have a few clients I supply articles on a monthly basis, and I enjoy it. It is a great additional income stream, and it keeps me busy. Most of my clients find me through my blog and my social media platforms. I also find some clients on Upwork and People per Hour. It can be tricky to get paid what you are worth, but I know what I am happy to accept and stick to it. At the end of the day, the quality of my work speaks for itself, and I only target clients I know would appreciate my work and my rates.



I wrote an eBook – How to Cash In as a Blogger, last year, and although I am yet to get rich on it. It has opened doors to loads of collaborations. I plan to write some more books in future, and I think it is a great way of having an additional income, if you have a great topic or theme to write about. It is unlikely you would get rich or even comfortable from your book sales, but it may open doors to greater things. It may also give you the credibility you need to excel in your other businesses. And it could also be a bestseller. You will never know until you try.




Many Bloggers are Vloggers, so YouTube is worth paying some attention, as there is a whole new market waiting to be tapped. I know many Vloggers many crazy amounts of money, some earning more than my GP. It is a field I am seriously contemplating getting into. If you are happy and confident being in front of a camera, this might be the right job/hobby for you.



This is like the audio version of YouTube, and worth looking into if you have great content to share and you rather stay off the camera. Plus it helps if you speak well and have a great voice. I love the Pro Blogger Podcast.


These are just some of the many small business ideas available to bloggers. Do you find any interesting?

  1. Great ideas. I always wonder about writing for others, but worry my writing style won’t ever be right! I have completed a couple of guest posts recently which were well received, so that’s a good start! How do people find ghost blogging jobs?

  2. I’m honestly far too busy just blogging to think about diversifying. There are only so many hours in the day. Great suggestions though, if I ever wanted a career change.

  3. I really need to get back into vlogging, not that I ever made any money from it, but just because I think it’s a good skill to have and if you get good at it can of course lead to revenue too x

  4. This was really interesting to read as somebody about to start up full time blogging due to childcare issues with going back to my job following maternity leave. I would love to work as a copywriter so I’ll be looking into this x

  5. This is really interesting. I am trying to get my first book published at the moment and I’m hoping my blog and the following I have built will help me do that.

  6. What a great list! I fluctuate with blogging so much (and have even given up a few times with it and had to start a fresh) so there are some great ideas here for me to keep writing if it happens again!

  7. Oh super helpful! I’m going to have some free time in September when the kids go off to school and nursery so definitely want to fill the gaps with work. These are great ideas x

  9. I like the way you taccled the coach idea. One of my teaches likes to say that you can’t take someone to a place you have never been to yourself. And thanks for the great ideas, I’m still trying to get over hating my own voice to start a podcast. But I’ll get htere.
