Make Money Blogging Part 2

So I hope you have already set up your Adsense account and if you have some traffic coming into your site, you should have already made some money. For the second portion of this I want to focus on affiliate programs. What are affiliate programs? With these programs you're partnered with online retailers and you promote their products on your blog or website. They provide you with text or image links to put on your blog and when someone clicks on those links and makes a purchase, you get a commission from that purchase.

The affiliate program is a little time consuming because they're constantly running promotions so you have to change you links or banners to stay up to date on the latest ads. If you can keep up with the updates, the commissions can be very rewarding especially on the big ticket items. I will post links to several affiliate programs that I'm associated with and you can check them out. They're free to join, but you have to be approved.

Connect Commerce is a Google Affiliate Network

Commission Junction


These are the top 3 in my opinion so check them out. Once you're approved, you have to apply to individual partners to see if your blog/website is fit for their products. Hope you make some money!
