So, you want to figure out a way to monetize your written content? Whether you write on an online publishing platform, blog, write e-mails or Substack newsletters, or even informative social media threads, there are numerous ways to monetize the content. It’s possible to monetize any form of written content; you just have to know how. The untapped potential of turning your written content into lucrative income is mindblowing. Here’s precisely how to make money from your written content.

Digital product sales

Digital products are the easiest to create and have the potential to be very lucrative and not to mention; passive. Digital products can be E-books, courses, templates, etc. Digital products cost you nothing but time to create. Once your digital product is created and for sale, you can start driving traffic to it from your written content. Embed the links in your blog posts, newsletters, or social media posts. When the content is consumed, people will click on your links, and that can potentially turn into sales. This is a great way to make money while you sleep.


What are you an expert in that you can coach people on? Here are some lucrative examples of coaching:

  • Book writing coaching
  • Business coaching
  • Fitness coaching
  • Life coaching
  • Manifestation coaching
  • Marketing coaching
  • Mindset coaching
  • Product launch coaching
  • Social media coaching
  • Writing coaching

You can write about topics related to your niche and embed links to your coaching program. For example, if you offer fitness coaching, you can write blog posts on healthy recipes and at-home workouts and include links to your coaching. In addition, you would need to set up a sales page that details what type of coaching you offer and what your clients will receive when working with you.


If you sell services, advertise them using your written content. Use your content as a lead generator to drive traffic to your service business. This content could be blog posts, e-mails, and social media posts. For example, if you offer graphic design, you could show glimpses of your work on social media and link to your services so that people can book with you. You could also write blog posts related to your offer and embed links.

Other examples of services you could offer:

  • Accounting
  • Consulting
  • Social media management
  • Writing


There are many websites you can use to collect donations from your readers. For example, you can use these donations to buy a cup of coffee or pay your bills, and everything in between. Websites you can use to accept donations are Ko-fi and Patreon, among others. To make money in this way, link to your donations page throughout your written content or link to it as a call-to-action at the end of your social media posts. Some online publishing platforms, such as Medium, have even started to implement a tipping feature so that readers can tip you for your content.
