This post is for my fellow bloggers!
For those of you new to the game of affiliate marketing, it can seem incredibly overwhelming. And, lets face it, after putting in hours and hours of work, you want (and deserve) to see results. When you’re a new blogger, monetizing is hard. I remember jumping for joy the day I made my first affiliate sale (a whopping $1.00) thinking I finally figured out the key to monetizing my blog!
Although $1.00 will get me little more than a candy bar, that first sale helped me realize that making money through affiliate marketing was a definite possibility…not just something you read about from seasoned blogging pros on Pinterest.
This course discusses one of my favorite blogging resources. Read more about the basics of affiliate marketing in my post: How I Made My First Affiliate Sale.
Just to make sure we’re both on the same page, affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick scheme. You want to be sure that you’re sharing products you believe in. Your readers trust you – don’t trick people into clicking on affiliate links or spam your readers with a tacky sales pitch.
If you’re just starting out, focus on high paying affiliate programs of which you can provide personal, detailed opinions. Build your readers’ trust by sharing high quality products you know they will appreciate. Gemma from Seaside Sundays published a step by step guide that I highly recommend. Her Affiliate Action Plan eBook helps you start monetizing your blog via affiliate marketing without being pushy or “salesy.” This resource was my go-to guide and, honestly, I would have been lost without it. She gives it to you straight!
So, if you’re tired of spending time monetizing your blog without results, this is the eBook for you. This is for those of you who get a ton of clicks, but no sales – so frustrating, I know! It helps you promote products without alienating your readers and becoming a dreaded sellout. With an emphasis of connecting with readers, this awesome tool provides strategy for finding the right audience and totally maximizing your profits.
