Are you big time into botanicals and natural medicine? Would you like to make money from your hobby and actually turn it into a career? There are a number of ways that you can make money both in person and line with your hobby. Here are a few great ideas to get you going on the right track.
Online Blogging For Money
If you want to make lots of money and make money fast, online blogging might be the trick. This is especially true if you have a knack for writing and a good friend base on places like facebook. Start a blog and just write about botanical subjects. You have all the knowledge in your head now. Knowledge that can help people and that can make you money. But how do you monetize a blog?
The internet is already monetized in every way. People are buying and selling advertisement space. The easiest way to make money is by simply inserting Adsense into your blog. Every time someone clicks on the links, you get a cut of the money that Google gets. The golden days of Adsense are over though and although it is the easiest way to make money, it is no longer really the best way. So what is the better way?
Affiliate advertising will probably make you far more money. Affiliates make money by mentioning or reviewing a product and then posting a link to the product. When a visitor buys the product through your link, you get a percentage of the purchase price. Nice right? There are many companies that want to pay you to mention their products but the easiest one to work with is probably Amazon.
When you sell ads on your blog whether they be through direct advertisements or product links, you need to be upfront with your users. Be sure to mention somewhere on your blog that you are selling links or advertising an affiliates content. This will keep you looking legit and it can save you some legal trouble.
Open A Botanicals Shop
Want to work closely with people and share your knowledge? Open a small botanical natural medicine store. This could be anything from a large store to a small kiosk. The easiest way to go might be to open a small kiosk. Consider specializing in one or two areas with a small range of products. Anti Aging medicines are always a big hit as are performance enhancing herbs for Sports and Fitness.
Make sure that you know your stuff if you decide to open your own store. If you do not consider yourself an expert on a subject, it might be best not to go this route. Also be sure to consult an attorney for legal advice before offering people botanicals for health needs. Best to prevent any possible legal trouble.
Go To Work For A Botanical Company
There are lots of companies that can use educated employees. These could be local retailers such as Whole Foods, specialty shops or online retailers.
