In this digital age, the importance of valuable content cannot be understated.

I’ve been blogging for 9 years and I can tell you, it has taken me a LOT of time, dedication and hard work.
Do you have a Do-It-Yourself beauty blog and wish to utilize it as a means to earn money? Wondering how to monetize content? This is where you will need to learn monetizing techniques so you can earn some extra money while writing helpful beauty blogs. I hope my experience can give you a few ideas!
It All Starts with Love & Followers
If you love fashion, beauty and writing, you are on the right path as it takes dedication and love for the things you write about to attract readers to your blog. By providing vital and valuable information, you can keep on attracting visitors to your blog.
Keep in mind – turning your blog into a career will take time and lots of love from your side! You will have to put in the time and the effort to make it successful.
With the advent of social media, you can have your friends and family share your blogs on their profiles and pages and spread it further through their friends and family.
How Do I Get More Social Media Followers?
It’s no secret, bloggers and influencers in every niche will get paid more money if they can reach a larger audience. Social media followers numbers matter! So how do you get more followers?
In order for you to get the followers, you will have to create content relevant to the DIY beauty niche. As you know, everyone loves to look their best so providing them with helpful tips and beauty recipes can greatly increase the number of readers you get.
Don’t just promote your own content. Become a reliable expert in the field by sharing other videos, news, and helpful tips from other bloggers and brands.
As a blogger, you will need advertisements to generate a steady flow of income. In fact, ads can be a fantastic way to earn passive income without having to do much actual work.
However, before you can do this, you will need to make sure that you have visitors coming to your website for your useful DIY beauty tips and health recipes. The best way to get started is through Google Adsense as not only is it simple to setup but it automatically places adverts on your blog. Google Adsense was one of my first advertisers and even though the payout is lower than other networks, it’s a fantastic first step.
Once you start getting visitors, they will see ads relevant to their search history and interests. Once they click on anything they’re interested in, it will generate income for you. After your blog grows in popularity, you will start to have a large number of visitors, resulting in you getting bigger advertisements. Then, you’ll have the traffic stats that will allow you to apply for larger (and higher paying) networks.
Take Advantage of Beauty Affiliate Programs
As a beauty blogger, you will get the chance to have access to various affiliate programs that can get you to generate a good load of income. There are so many beauty products out there from numerous companies, chances are once your blog starts attracting a good number of visitors, brands will notice and start offering you affiliate programs such as beauty products, passes to spa, beauty salon coupons and skin health products, etc.
You should keep in mind not to start signing up for all the affiliate programs at once. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself. It is best to accept only those programs that you genuinely care for. If you go against what you stand for, you will end up disturbing your reader base.
Only join affiliate programs that you would use yourself and recommend to your family and friends. The best way to go is to use the products yourself, try them out and see whether they truly are what they say or not. Review the product on your blog and then offer it once you are satisfied with the results.
Among the benefits of accepting an affiliate program is that you will get a lot of these products at a much lower price, allowing you to buy as many as possible for your blog’s photo tutorials. You can even offer discount codes to your readers so they too can buy these products at lower prices.
Be Patient & Don’t Give Up!
The most important rule of digital content monetization is to never give up! Don’t think that you will start earning money within weeks or months. Your DIY beauty blog might take time to make waves, but you have to persistently keep at it and grow your readership. Also, be on the lookout for the best monetization tools. Keep doing your best to offer the best advice, tips and valuable information that attracts more and more readers, resulting in you growing your followers.
