One of my absolute favorite strategies for blog monetization is affiliate marketing.
This is such a key way to make money on your blog, because it will be around for a long time. Affiliate links create a passive income for your site. All you have to do is re-promote a post and you will likely see some new affiliate purchases!
A few tips to help you up your affiliate marketing game:
1. Don’t limit yourself to posts – You can share affiliate links on social too! Try to find fabulous deals, or share something so spectacular people can’t help but click. Toy around with it and see what you audience responds best to, and do a lot of it! Always remember to disclose affiliate links, even on social!
2. Make it enticing – You don’t have to give a full on description of what you are linking. Make it feel natural to the flow of your post. In writing a recipe post you could seamlessly link out to your favorite mixing bowls, or even the ingredients you are using, if some of them can be purchased on amazon!
3. Do a round up – Yes, a round up of affiliate links! Be careful that it doesn’t come off as too commercially, but you can pull of a successful affiliate round up with some creativity and of course being careful to make the post relevant and useful for your readers!
