Make Money Online With Your Talents

We all have different talents and abilities, but as bloggers we must learn to recognize what we’re good at and use our unique traits to help us make money online. Obviously as bloggers we should be able to write and we should know what we’re writing about, but there is more to us than just that! Everyone has a multitude of talents, and all you’ve got to do is think about what they are and put them to use, implementing ideas no one else would think of.

A huge part about making money online is being unique. Think about one of the most popular blogs in your niche, whichever one that comes to mind first. Did that blogger get successful by copying others and never doing anything new, never sharing their unique talents? Of course not. You need to separate yourself from the crowd and offer something different.

Right now I challenge you to sit down and grab a pen and a piece of paper. Jot down at least ten things that you’re good at, and think about how you can use these abilities to make money online. Take notes on how you can apply those talents to new projects or how you can work them into your existing blog or site and create linkbait or money-making potential. This might seem hard, but honestly it isn’t. The key thing here is to be open-minded, to think out of the box. Open your eyes to a new perspective so you can see how your talents can be used in a different way from the norm.

It’s obvious that you can use your talents and abilities to start new projects. For example, if you’re a great cook you can start a baking blog, posting photos and recipes to some great dishes or even a video of you in the kitchen. But there are already plenty of blogs like that, and unless you can think of even more ways for yours to stand out, it could end up being a wasted effort.

Think about how you can use your talents and apply them to your current blog or site, no matter what its niche is. If you can draw, draw a picture of an A-list blogger and it’ll probably get plenty of attention. Can you sing or write songs? Make a video of you singing a song you’ve written about your niche – it might go viral like Kina’s song about Digg did. Like mentioned above, maybe you can bake. Bake a dessert or cookies that resembles something in your niche, such as a popular site’s logo. Use your abilities and your creativity to your advantage!

There are thousands of ways to create linkbait and draw attention to your site, thus helping you to make money online – all you have to do is open your eyes and look around for something unique that you can do. One of my New Year’s resolutions for this blog is going to be offering something different and being more unique. What about you? Share your ideas and opinions in the comments section!

    Awesome post, you simply just can’t just wait to be successful you’ve got to work to it.

    PS: I love your template (Check mine lol)

    Thanks Danny! Even though I am a lazy person, I’ve always known that I can’t just sit back and wait for the success and money to flow in – but I’m getting better at working harder too. Another realization I’ve made is that you need to stand out from all the blogs out there and offer something different, which is going to be one of my resolutions for 2008.

    I love your template as well! Haha. Pop Blue has always been one of my favorites. Keep up the great work. :)

    This is so true! I think that many people are very good at something that they don’t even realize has a great deal of value. Our talents and ability can seem so common and natural to us, that we don’t realize how important the knowledge that drives those talents can be to others.

    Excellent post!

    Thanks for your insight Christine – what you said couldn’t have been worded any better! You’re right. Often times we don’t realize one of our capabilities is worth something to someone else, or we don’t think of a creative way to put it to use. If a person has any talents at all (and we all have more than we think we do!) they can think of a unique way to implement them, which is extremely beneficial in helping a blog stand out. You just have to put your mind to it!

    Thanks again, I appreciate it. :)
