I for one loveee talking, chatting and writing about food. So much so, I feature a fair few home recipes, as well as some firm favourites.
I have often dreamed of opening my own restaurant and taking my love of food full time but have remained a little sceptical. However, there are other ways I, as a blogger, can turn my love of food into a great money earner.
Currently, the food industry is extremely lucrative, and there are many successful bloggers who have found that it is ever so easy to make a profit from their food blog, and without having to have buckets of cash waiting, or running a fully fledge restaurant.
Make sure you set up an e-commerce store that is linked to your blog so all of your followers can easily place their order.
Another great way to make some dollar from your blog is to collect your best recipes and publish them into a book. People love a good cookbook as they are great sources of kitchen inspiration. Even with the update of electronic devices, many reach for the old fashion book, since they’re much easier to navigate mid recipe.
You will no doubt have a DSLR camera for lots of pretty pictures of food for your blog. Did you know that being able to take great food images is a skill that many large food companies need on their team? Quite a few of the big food companies hire freelance food stylists to create dishes and photograph them for all their marketing materials and adverts.
This is one service that you could advertise on your blog.
If you are a really skilled cook, you might want to see about setting up a pop-up restaurant. This isn’t a permanent restaurant, so you don’t have to worry about giving up your day job! It’s just a small restaurant that occupies a space for a couple of days. Your followers can then come and buy your meals and dishes. You might want to do a pop-up supper club instead so that you know exactly how many people you will be cooking for. These supper clubs are also a lot easier to prepare for in advance as well! This is a real easy way to gain support for your food, ahead of bigger ventures like a cookbook.
