Difference Between a Blogger and an Influencer

Talk about blogging and influencers right now has skyrocketed. It is a hot topic. Many millennials do this to earn cash, and it is quite an effective way to make money.

There is a huge difference between bloggers and influencers. I consider myself both. I have multiple streams of income; both of these are my side gigs.

A blogger is someone who blogs. I know, duh, right. An influencer is someone who is influential online and shares products or services to their audience on one or many platforms. It depends on what the client wants. A blogger can be an influencer if they have an influential blog. The two can honestly go hand in hand, but sometimes people might want one or the other.

If brands want to be seen on social media, they will most likely hire an influencer. However, sometimes they want more than that such as a blog post. The best part about this is that it can lead to affiliate links, which in turn also adds another revenue of income. It’s like a three-way system. Do you see what I mean?

In the blogging world, influence is measured by the number of monthly visitors and engagement. Engagement means shares, comments, clicks, etc. People aren’t always concerned about your social media following but would rather have a high level of engagement over anything else.

However, just because you have a blog, doesn’t mean you’re an influencer.

What Is An Influencer?: You have seen celebrities get used as influencers: Oprah, Rush, Kim Kardashian.  From a brand perspective, this method is powerful since the influencer can transfer their story and knowledge to their audience.

Most of us, though, have the expertise and a personality which is an excellent benefit for influencers. If you do not have a fun, humorous personality, then being an influencer might not be for you.

  1. Focus On Your Niche: It’s ok to have varied interests but make sure your niche is defined. Having this narrow field established is critical to know your audience and what they are looking forward to the most in your posts.
  2. Include Yourself In Your Visual Content: Audiences connect with people, so that means your personality and imagery matter the most. Put yourself out there, and do custom photos. You don’t need to be in every picture, but avoid the use of stock images on your posts.
  3. Keep It Real: Authenticity is key with being an influencer and even a blogger. People can’t connect if you aren’t unique and personal. It is a proven fact. Keep your wording with posts and always follow disclosure information rules.
  4. Engage With Your Audience: People who follow you want to connect with you. You have something interesting to say that they like. Reach out and give them a chance to communicate with you. Something as simple as commenting is important.  

Here are links for some of my favorite influencer programs:

Influencer marketing is one of my favorite ways to make money. I love being able to share custom stories and images on my social media platforms (and even blog). Are you looking to get started with influencer marketing? Shoot us a message for some additional tips.

How to Make Money Blogging?

There is a constant question of “how do I make money blogging,” and “is it even a real job?” The thing is, it can be if you know what you are doing. Nothing happens overnight, but it is well worth it to earn money each month from blogging.

Here is how to make money from a blog:

  • Set up your blog
  • Start creating useful content
  • Get off your blog and start finding readers
  • Build engagement with the readers that come
  • Start making money from the readership you have through one or more of a variety of income streams

Now let’s break this down…

  1. Start a Blog

To make money blogging, you’re going to need to have a blog. I recommend using Weebly. This selection is a perfect platform to get your blog ready and started.

  1. Start Creating Useful Content

A blog is not a blog without content. The trick here is that you need useful content. It is about you, but your audience too. What about you makes you different and draws people in to want to know more? This discovery might take some time but ask for feedback on social media, etc. Find out what people respond well to in your topic(s).  


Start by thinking about the type of reader you’d like to read your blog. Once you figure that out, you can start to plan content and targeting.

  1. Many Ways to Make Money Blogging

You can make money from blogging in so many different ways. You have to find out which methods are best for you. With so many options, finding what you want to offer and implementing it is key.

     4.   .Advertising Income

This choice is where I started. You have a monthly retainer, and it often runs in a similar matter as a magazine or newspaper sells ads. As your traffic and brand grow, you’ll find advertisers will be willing to pay to get exposure to your audience. I am not a huge fan of this for my audience, but for some, it works great.

     5. Affiliate Income

Affiliate income is when you link to a product that is for sale on another site and when someone follows your link and ends up buying that product, you earn a commission on that sale. It’s simple and easy. Here are some of my favorite affiliates; ShareASale, Amazon, and BrandCycle. 

     6. Recurring Income

This choice is where readers pay a regular, recurring amount to access either premium content, a community area, some kind of service, tools, or coaching. This method is becoming more popular and fun. For example, if you are a food blogger, you can create a membership group of recipes for your audience and make money off of it.  ‘

      7.  Promoting a Business/Influencer

This way has become extremely popular over the years. It basically means that you promote a product or service to your audience. You have to have an active and engaging audience; you do not always need to have a large following as long as it is engaging. It is one of the biggest ways I make money right now.

     8. Services

A common way that bloggers make money is offering services to readers. This choice can be anything from coaching and consulting, to writing or copywriting, design, training, or other freelance services.

These are just a few ways your blog can make you money, and it all depends on your audience as well. I would love to set up a time to chat with you to see how I can help you grow your blog.
