Blog to make money?
How! I started looking into a new way of earning money a few months ago. I was looking for something I could do within my own timeframe, in my own home and in my own way. The internet was the obvious conclusion and a blog was the extension. Thousands of us are thinking along the same lines.
So ok, how do we start making money from our blogs? This is the most popular question that is being asked and….. the most answered question being sold today. And that is the basic answer to that one question right there.
Thousands of people are making money from us. Search on Pinterest or on the web and you will find thousands of people willing to share their secrets with you. They promise to give you the tools to grow your own online income from a blog – for free. Just click on this link or subscribe to my video. Each time you click on a link you make them money. Each time you subscribe to a video you make them money.
I am not saying that you will not read any good tips when you trawl through them – you will. The tips are given as an incentive to reel you in and get you to click and share. I have read so many of these blogs and really, I have had enough. I look at the titles and turn off quickly. That may be a little unfair to some bloggers but they are the few in the middle of an ocean of ‘money making from me’ bloggers.
I am certainly nowhere near making an earning from blogging but I have made a start. How? By joining a company that allows me access to thousands of affiliated companies. Yes you do pay £5 to join but, if successful, they return your fee back to you. I have not yet heard of anyone that has been rejected. You must have a blog and that blog must be within the boundaries of decency.
What happens next? That is up to you. You choose the company to advertise. When a reader clicks on the advert within your blog and purchase an item, (most companies keep this particular link to your reader for 30 days), you get paid a commision. It’s as easy as that. I personally have chosen companies that compliment my blog. If I am talking about shoes then I decide on a shoe company that I would personally use or buy from. Often. I will purchase an item to ensure the company is good to share. There is nothing worse than receiving a recommendation only to find they are the worst company ever and the goods are poorly made. So, check them out if you can so your conscience is clear.
The company that I find the best (but there are many many more) is Awin. They have thousands of affiliated companies to choose from and they colour code each one on performance. It helps. Take a look by clicking on the linked advert below. It will take you directly to the site you need.
If you want to make a start then this is certainly one way to try. Good luck and if you find it helpful please ‘follow me’. You will then receive an email when I publish further tips that I want to share with you. X
