The food industry has really changed. In fact there are many famous food bloggers and online restaurant critics. They used their love for food and created a business. You can, too!

Here’s how!


Making Money by Sharing Recipes

There are a few different business models you can embrace. One model is as an affiliate marketer. You can blog about your favorite recipes, create video cooking demonstrations and offer information about food and cooking. While discussing various recipes and cooking topics you can include links to relevant products. When a visitor clicks on the link and makes a purchase, you earn a commission.

You can also profit from advertising sales and PPC clicks like Google AdSense. You can write reviews for restaurants in your area and make money on advertising sales.

The second business model you can choose is an information marketer. You can create cookbooks and sell them online. You might consider creating a blog or website that supports your cookbook sales.

For example, you could blog about various recipes and offer cooking demonstrations while also selling your cookbooks.


What Do You Need to Get Started?

First and foremost, you need a love of food! If you enjoy eating, and who doesn’t, then you’re set. The second thing to consider is a specialty. Do you want to focus on sharing soup recipes? What about bread or baked goods? Will you review restaurants? If so, will you focus on a type of restaurant or will you cover them all?

Before you hop online and start blogging or reviewing, create a business plan. Set goals for your business and strategies to achieve them. You’ll also need basic equipment. You’ll want a computer with an internet connection. You’ll also want to create a blog or website. If you’re creating video content for your blog or website then you’ll also want a camera.

Chances are you already have a computer, an internet connection and you may have a video camera. That means all you need is a domain name, hosting and a website or blog. You can create that for just a few dollars. Of course you can spend thousands on a website too. However, there’s no need to spend a ton. You can create a great blog or website all by yourself for very little.


Marketing Your Business As an affiliate or Information Marketer

Your biggest marketing tool will likely be your content. Content will help you rank on the search engines. You can also use pay per click advertising to drive traffic. Social networking is free and it’s a great way to increase awareness for your website.


Create a newsletter

Email newsletters are a great way to stay in touch with your readers. They’re also a fantastic way to promote a few affiliate products and earn extra money. If you love food and you enjoy talking about it, consider building a business around your passion. Create a food blog. Write cookbooks. Share resources, recipes, reviews and information and earn income at the same time.


Whether you love eating, creating or sharing recipes, you can make money doing what you enjoy. Everyone’s taste buds aren’t the same and your unique perspective can be made into a profitable business if you follow these steps.
