This is a contributed post, written by Laura Scott.

Building up a blog to become profitable isn’t easy, it can take a lot of time and effort. However, once you’ve built up your site to bring in a good income, it can set you up for life. So it’s more than worth the time and effort it takes, as it will give you the opportunity of a brighter and more financially sound future. That being said, while your blog is building up, it can really take its toll on your finances. The good news is that you don’t have to struggle financially, while building up your site, as there are lots of options for earning around it.


Below are a list of simple ways that you can boost your income while building up your blog. These are all easy to do, not too time consuming, and can bring in a fantastic income. What more could you want?


Become a virtual assistant

A great option if you’ve got assistant or receptionist experience is to become a virtual assistant. This is, for all intensive purposes, the same as being a personal assistant and receptionist rolled into one. The only difference is that you will be working virtually instead of in person. You can either opt for a part-time or full-time role, depending on how much money you need to make. Even if you go full-time, you’ll have plenty of time to devote your blog.


Work as a freelance writer
As a blogger, you should have already mastered the art of creating great content, so why not earn from it? If you’re a skilled writer, a great way to supplement your income while building up your blog is by working as a freelance writer. The rates of pay can be great; it’s work that’s easy to do, and you can fit it in around your blog. There are lots of sites that advertise freelance writing work, including AllWriting. So you shouldn’t struggle to find work. You could even advertise your services online on Twitter and Facebook and see whether you have any clients approach you.


Complete online surveys

A great option for earning money easily around your blogging is completing surveys online. This isn’t like a proper role; it’s just something that you can do as and when you want to. Although there are lots of surveys that only pay in pennies, there are others that pay well; it’s just a case of finding them. You won’t earn as much as you would with an actual role, like working as a virtual assistant. But doing online surveys can still be a good way to boost your income.


Be a product reviewer
When a new product is launched, the company need people to test and review it. Sign up online to become a product reviewer and you’ll be sent various items to test out and review. As well as getting to keep the product, you should also be offered a financial reward for your review. The amount that you will receive will vary depending on what the product is and how long the testing process takes.


So there you have it, some simple ways you can boost your income while building up your site.

Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to.
