Earn Income Through Affiliate Marketing
Have you heard those stories about bloggers who are working for themselves making money off their blog? Have you wondered how feasible or attainable making money off your blog really is for anyone? For those of you who have been blogging, or those who are even interested in blogging, let me be very clear here -- you, too, can make money off your blog!
I am so excited to tell you how you can earn affiliate income from blogging! Before this year, I had a vague knowledge about affiliate marketing. Then, I started digging deeper into learning more about what is affiliate marketing. The more research I did about creating a blog, the more I was interested in affiliate marketing. I continued to dig a little deeper, and found this course online calledMaking Sense of Affiliate Marketing. One of the very neat things about this course is that the person who created this course, Michelle Schroeder-Gardner, has been doing affiliate marketing for several years now and was able to quit her full-time day job to pursue her blogging business!
Michelle is currently making over $50,000 a month in affiliate marketing alone. Her success was not an overnight success, rather it took her time to build up this business. Now, she gets to travel full-time with her husband while working on her blog. That sounds amazing, doesn't it? Essentially, affiliate marketing is a marketing arrangement in which you receive a commission for traffic or sales generated from referrals. If you have started a blog then you should also start looking into affiliate marketing. It is actually semi-passive income, where you get the opportunity to also promote products that you love!
Michelle blogs over at Making Sense of Cents, and details frequently about budgeting, savings, and all things money related. The course that she created walks you through all of the details, the ins and outs, of truly what it takes to do affiliate marketing, like she does on her blog.
Here's what the course goes through:
What affiliate marketing is and how it works
Why affiliate marketing is great
The exact steps she's taken to earn over $300,000 from a single blog post
How to pick the right affiliate products to promote
How to increase conversions
How to build trust and not lose followers
Required disclosures that you need to know about
The one major tool you need for affiliate marketing
Different strategies to use to promote your affiliate products
How to use Pinterest to succeed at affiliate marketing (yes, this includes the newest Pinterest affiliate rules!)

This course is not free, and it definitely needs to work within your budget before you click on purchase. However, I have learned far more about my website and blogging from taking this course than I could have learned all on my own. I definitely feel there is a return on investment. Since I am new to the blogging scene and have just started my business this year, I have not made actual money from affiliate marketing yet. What I have seen is very specific growth in my page views on my blog, and visits to my website. I believe that if I continue to produce content, grow, and expand my blog I will start seeing the commissions coming in.
As always, I am here to answers your questions - so feel free to drop me a line. . . And, remember to stay within your budget!
