Happy Monday!! Today I am back with part 2 of my “How to Make Money Blogging” mini series! If you missed part one last week you can check it out HERE.
Last week I told you about my favorite blogging networks to join to get sponsored posts and today I will tell you about a few more ways to make money blogging.
Affiliate Marketing is something I used to do but haven’t in a while. It doesn’t work well for me but I know some people who make lots of money from it! Basically Affiliate Marketing is done a couple of ways. You can out ads on your page and get paid per click or you can write blog posts full of key words and get paid per click. Affiliate marketing is good for you if you have a ton of interaction on your page. Some of the Affiliate Marketing networks I used were ShareASale and Ebay Enterprise. I have also heard amazing things about the Amazon Affiliate Marketing network but sadly it isn’t available in some states, such as Arkansas.
If there is a company you really and truly like reach out to them!! Most companies have brand ambassadors that are bloggers and if you are truly passionate about the company/product then more than likely they are a perfect fit for your blog. Reach out and email the company and share your passion and your blog info and see what happens. You may get a new product to review and that may turn into a brand ambassadorship! You never know unless you try! Some of my faves have been with Chobani and Soda Stream!
You have to spend money to make money. Have you heard that one before? I sure have. Yes, blog conferences cost money but you can also make relationships that could lead to money making opportunities in the future. I have been to two Bloggy Boot Camps and have made some of my best relationships with brands this way. Exchange business cards like crazy with the brand representatives and follow up after the conference and you may just land a great opportunity!!
I hope you have learned a few things both last week and this week and I really hope you will follow up and join some networks or pitch some companies!! We are all in this together!!
