There is this crazy notion going around the internet that you have to wait at least one year to monetize your blog! I’m here to tell you that is absolutely NOT true. Creating, maintaining, promoting and growing your blog is hard work. Why wait a year to reap the reward?!
Monetizing your blog to full-time income is totally possible with the right strategy.
The strategy starts with diversification. Below is my income chart for October 2016 through July 2018. As you can see, there is ad income, Amazon affiliate income and “other income”, which is a collection of small affiliate programs and sponsored posts payments.
As you can see, affiliate marketing makes up a large portion of my income each month.
Affiliate marketing is when an online retailer pays you for sales completed based on your referral. This means the customers price is not effected, it’s the seller than pays you!
You can promote the products and services on your blog that you love and use daily and make commissions for doing so. Chances are, you have already mentioned a product or service on your blog that you could have monetized!
One of my favorite Affiliate Marketing programs is Amazon Affiliates. I consistently make thousands of dollars a month promoting products available on Amazon!
Mastering Affiliate Marketing is a step-by-step guide to making money using affiliate links. The strategy shared inthis book is the same strategies I used to help grow my brand new blog from $0 at launch date to $5,000 monthly in just 6 months (and it’s still growing like crazy!) Feel free to check out the blog where all the action happens at Swaddlesnbottles.com.
Here’s what other Blogger have to say about this eBook:
“Affiliate market completely confused me! Outside of sporadic links I’ve never truly known where to start when it comes to making money from my blog. Caroline addresses not only different
avenues of income but how to maximize each one to bring in reoccurring profits. She breaks down each avenue into easy, actionable steps and the little tips she gives you make a big difference to the “big picture”.
“I have taken some of the most expensive and well-known affiliate marketing courses, but find the Mastering Affiliate Marketing ebook to be the highest value resource available. The book breaks down the steps necessary to effectively implement a successful affiliate marketing strategy in a more detailed way than the top affiliate marketing courses – at a fraction of the cost. I highly recommend this ebook!”Shelby
