La Piccola Italia is all about living the best, most luxurious lifestyle that you can. After all, we’re only here once, we only get one shot at life so we need to make sure that we make it count. I realise though that not everyone can afford all the luxuries we share here, but there are ways you can make some extra money to help fund your luxury lifestyle.
Funding your luxury lifestyle
Living a life filled with luxury doesn’t have to cost the earth, but let’s face it, many of us do need to find some extra money from somewhere in order to fund our trips abroad, meals out and spa days. They don’t come cheap no matter how hard we hunt for bargains.
These days, it’s not uncommon for people to take on extra hours at work to pay for the finer things in life. But what if that’s not an option for you? What if there aren’t the hours available or you can’t get the childcare to make it worthwhile?
Side hustles are becoming increasingly popular with people who desperately need or want to make more money. Whatever you’re saving for, side hustles are a fantastic way to make extra cash.
Blogging for extra money
One of the all time best side hustles we’ve come across is blogging. It often starts off as a hobby for many and soon becomes a really profitable second income stream.
But how do bloggers make their money?
The truth is that every blogger will make their money in different ways.
Many use blogger outreach agencies to source sponsored content. This means that the blogger will be paid for either hosting pre-written content on their blog, or writing content containing links to the client. This is probably the main way that most bloggers earn their money.
Blogger outreach benefits both the blogger and the brands paying for content. It’s a fantastic way for brands to get their products seen by their potential customers in a natural way. People buy from people they know, trust and respect and bloggers have often built up a really loyal following. Blogger outreach strategy varies a little between different agencies, with some contacting bloggers directly and others posting jobs for bloggers to apply for, but the end result works really well for everyone.
Then there are bloggers who make money with affiliate marketing too, they share products or services that they love with their readers, and they receive a commission payment when somebody clicks through their link and makes a purchase.
Blogging really is a fantastic way to bring in a second income, it’s a great side hustle and in the long run it can actually earn you enough money that it takes over from your actual job. Can you imagine sitting at home, typing away at your leisure and earning enough money to jet off around the world? It really isn’t as far fetched as you might think. The key is to get started and start to reach out to agencies, you never know where it might lead.
