How to make money with your blog

Making real money with affiliate programs

If you have a blog or a website and you want to make money I have some info that can help you. I created my website over 10 years ago as a resource for plus size clothing, as my audience grew I added affiliate links to make an income. As a wife, mom to a special needs child, and caretaker for my elderly grandparent, I have a busy schedule, and the flexibility of running a blog has been great.

To make money you need the traffic to your blog. You can write a press release about your blog. If you need a profession freelancer to write a press release at an affordable price go to Fiverr. Once you have your press release go to 24-7 Press Release Newswire and it will get syndicated to news sites. I get most of my website visitors through the blog posts I've created. Once I create a blog post, I promote the link to the blog post through social media websites like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+.

You can create blog posts using your affiliate links about your niche products, special promotions, sales, and offers. You can also use banners and add them to your sidebar and header of your blog. Use your blog to create a useful source of information for customers.

If you own an online store join an affiliate network. You get publishers like me to market your products to their audience for a commission when a sale is made. Merchants can recruit bloggers they desire to work with to target their ideal audience. Affiliate sales are a great way to market products in more places and make sales that otherwise wouldn't have been made. It's a win for both the blogger and the merchant.

Affiliate networks I use on my site

  • Share-a-sale: I have used this network for years they always pay on time and have instructional videos and customer service to help you. The have many categories from cars, health, travel, and more. Merchants that send out newsletters, update links and offer personalized higher commissions do very well.
  • Awin: I just joined this network and learing to use the it. I already made a few sales!
  • Shopify: A majority of small business merchants through my affilite networks use shopify to open a online store to sell products. They have a easy to use platform and customer service to help your business to be a success.
  • Amazon affiliate: great program and tons of products to promote

Residual Income

In a two-tier affiliate program, or a multi-tier program (two or more levels), the first tier of the commission is the same as in a regular affiliate program. The only difference is the additional tier(s), whereby marketers also earn a commission on sales generated by people they referred to the program for life.

A typical strucure looks like this

  • 1st tier= 10% commission on all your direct sales referrals
  • 2nd tier= 3% commission on all your sub affiliate sales referrals

When you become a sub-affiliate it won't affect your commission, payment is direct from the merchant. To become a successful affiliate always promote the affiliate product, not the program. This is not a Multi-Level Marketing MLM or get rich quick scheme.
