Affiliate Marketing and Blogging
With Affiliate Marketing you can make a percentage of money off items other companies are selling. So if you have a website that has a lot of traffic this is also a good one for you. It works like how I have on the right side of this blog. I have links setup with my associate id embedded into the code that is provided to you. When someone clicks on that link and purchases one of the items you make a small percentage of that sale.
Now this all sounds simple but there are a few things that need to be done so that way you get accepted by both Affiliate Marketing and Google AdSence.
- Get your account setup with a company like Amazon Associates, they are great for selecting pretty much anything you can think of.
- Create your account and start selling – now if you have a store front and want to sell specifically Amazon product you can do so by creating an Amazon Store code to put into your blog page.
Before going all out remember what I said about being careful, you need to keep in mind that if you want best of all the worlds you need to keep this to a minimum so that way you get accepted by Google AdSense program. I have heard from others that they had to many other links and html banners in their site and was denied access to Google Adsense.
This has never happened to me but its a possibility that I don’t want to chance when making money on my blog.
I found a great post on the internet by UberAffiliate Group. They have some fantastic Ideas on what to do. But like I have said before, take it all as a grain of salt. Grab all the information you can and put it into your own perspective. What worked for them or anyone else may not work for you. So take all the goods that you like and mesh it all together and then check out my previous blog about “how to make money while blogging“.
