05 February, 2022 (Saturday)

Food blogging, something that was initially considered a hobby, has transformed itself into a full-time job. When we speak of it as a job, the basic understanding of any person would indicate that it brings back certain benefits or monetary returns. Luckily, it is true! Food bloggers have changed through the years and have found unique solutions to earn returns from this industry! 

We’ve listed down some of the most effective ways to earn as a food blogger- 

1) Sponsored content 

Sponsored content can take many forms, but the basic principle is that a brand pays for content on a food blogger’s site or on social media to promote one of their goods. The brand usually contacts a blogger based on their past sponsorships and engagement delivered. 

2) Being brand ambassadors 

There are some similarities between this and sponsored content. The most obvious is that a Brand Ambassadorship is a long-term commitment that can last anywhere from three months even a year or beyond. However, it is necessary that the terms decided benefit both, the blogger and the brand. 

3) Freelancing

Freelancing in the food blogging industry allows the bloggers’ countless options to earn or get a benefitting barter exchange. Various freelancing work includes-

  • Food styling
  • Food photography 
  • Food video production
  • Testing recipes 
  • Food writing
  • Menu development
  • Menu makeovers 

And so much more! 

4) Sharing the knowledge 

If a food blogger has certain skills, they can focus on what they are best at and start training other potential bloggers or the ones who generally fantasize about it! Such classes can take place via social platforms in form of blogs, live sessions, personalised content, websites, etc.

5) Personalise 

A great way for food bloggers to get monetary returns is to write a book and market it over digital platforms. One can also make their own product line or collaborate in personalising items to earn back revenue.  

Instagram and other such platforms help in the growth of such creators and hence the latest features that help legally and for the engagement should be used wisely to make the optimum use of such opportunities!
