Using Affiliate Marketing is Simply means that you Sell other People’s Products to your Audience. If you see any Blog with an Amazon Bookstore, that’s an example of Affiliate Program.
Many People like and trust Amazon, so they feel comfortable promoting Amazon Products to their Readers.
Tips to Promote Amazon Affiliate Links are Given Below:-
I love Affiliate Marketing and that is the only way, which I’m using until now by the time of writing this post (dated April 7, 2019) for my Ease Bedding Dot Com, may be in future I’ll use More Ways as well.
In my opinion When you start a New Blog and your Blog is not getting any Traffic at all, even few visitors can Click your Affiliate Ad or Affiliate Link and can make a Purchase, but on the other side Adsense works for those Blogs, which really have Good Traffic.
So Affiliate Marketing is a Best way to Make Money with your Blog, even when you just started your New Blog. Most people believe that you need a lot of Traffic to Make money with your blog, but while using Affiliate Links, that’s not the case.
The Secret is to Join some Social Networks; such as PINTEREST. Whenever you Publish a New Article, then Share it with all these Channels and second if you have big following it’s all about having Loyal Readers, who are Interested in What you’re talking about.
One more thing, which is so important that you make sure you Fully Disclose to let People Know that you’re using Affiliate Links.
I use Affiliate Links in my Ease Bedding Blog(in all posts/Pages) I tried on my Sidebar(Banners), but they didn’t worked for me. So right now I don’t have any Banners on my Blog’s sidebar, but I do have Affiliate Links in my all posts and Pages.
Is Affiliate Marketing the Right Way to Monetize your Blog?
In my opinion yes, because this is the Alone Way, which is Making around $500-700 Monthly with Ease Bedding Blog.
Affiliate Marketing works best for those people, who are not interested in Creating their own Products, but do Enjoy engaging like me with their Audience and Recommending Products or Services based on the Audience’s Needs, Affiliate Marketing is for them.
Affiliate Programs you can Sign Up to, are written Below
- Amazon Associates, I use this one on my Ease Bedding Blog and Recipes with More Dot Com and I love this program

One of the most popular systems to make money with your blog or website is Google Adsense.

Direct Ad Sales
You can Make Money by Selling Banner Ad Space, but right now I’m not using it, choice is yours.
Even I got few emails from few companies as well as one from a Blogger, but I don’t want to put banners on my Blog’s Sidebar, because I’m trying to focus on bringing Organic Traffic with Free Ways. So once I’ve More Traffic, then only I can think, but not right now.
Yes, I’ve good Traffic on my Ease Bedding Blog, still I don’t use Banners from other Companies, despite of getting emails.
I prefer to use my own Blog Posts on Sidebar and they’re bringing even more Money, because Readers can find them easily from sidebar.
The best thing about Selling Direct Sales is that You are able to Choose, How much you want to Sell the Space and for How long you want to Place the Ad? For example, 3 months, 6 month or even more.
If they Purchases a Selected Time Period to display the Ad, then you can ask for Payment.
The benefits of using this Ad is that you’ve your own choice to choose the who you want to Advertise on your Blog and offer a range of payment plans.
This type of Program has some Cons; such as,
- Nowadays it is not popular anymore, as it was a few years ago
- This Ad can misleading to Visitors if the Advertisement is not Relevant
- Too many Ads can Slow down your Site Performance
You can use your Blog to Sell Services. Selling Service is, when you do something for a Client in return for Payment.
By offering your Time and Expertise to Businesses that need your Service, you can Make an Income from your Blog.
Services has the good Profit Margins as you’re effectively Selling your time, but not a Physical Product. But your Income is limited to the Number of Hours that you’re available to work.
For example-Promoting your Expertise to deliver Training or Consultancy Services to Business can be a Really Profitable Way to Create an Online Income. Whatever is your Expertise, you can Build up your Profile on your BLOG.
Starting a Blog with WordPress is easier than ever before, because you don’t have to learn Coding or do something etc to start a Blog anymore.
You can Offer Freelance Services, like Writing or Design. You can also be a Consultant and Offer your Knowledge and Opinion to make money Online.
If you’re good at DESIGN, then there are lots of Opportunities to Offer your Services to Businesses or even to other Bloggers.
