August 6, 2011 By AngEngland 23 Comments This post was written as part of the Blog Hop Conference at Home and you can check out the other 2 dozen + conference sessions being offered at Blog Conference Newbie’s Blop Hop Conference Agenda! Something that has been coming up a lot recently is whether affiliate sales is useful for bloggers, or is a waste of time.
Here are some tips for increasing your revenue using affiliate sales wisely, without spamming your readers or junking up your sidebars. Price and Revenue Share Considerations – Look for affiliate programs with either a high percentage of revenue share or higher priced item (or both).
When I tell my readers, try Genesis or Headway, they can trust that I’m familiar with those two themes and have used them. I was so afraid of this at first but once you start getting the hang of it you learn your audience. What you’ll also find is that many small business owners, ebook authors and bloggers have affiliate programs as well. However my gardening website, my Untrained Housewife website, etc all use Adsense and I make payout every month almost (during UTH redesign things were wonky for awhile so that obviously effected click throughs. The second I decided to get rid of all those ads and put up my own prices, people started contacting me about wanting to advertise on Dagmar’s momsense. I have ten times the response rate from text links built into my posts than from any banner ad.
Coloring Pages for children is a wonderful activity that encourages children to think in a creative way and arises their curiosity.
For example, this post about relieving back pain during pregnancy is something I felt the need to source my information on. This just means that if someone clicks your link, checks out the product, but then leaves, will you still get credit if they buy later?
It’s a great place to link up many of the most common tools or books or items that you use personally, or that you often recommend to clients and friends. For example, I had two very affiliate-oriented posts this month because two of the programs I’ve been with for awhile had time-sensitive specials.
Maybe I’m wasting valuable real estate there….I hate to abandon Amazon because I love promoting books, but if I want to make money as a blogger, I think it has to go. I would stick with your books if that’s your thing, but examine other book possibilities. First you will have to build 2 to 3 niche sites selling products which gets sold frequently and get above that 4% commission mark..!


If you mention a product or service in a blog post, and that product or service has an affiliate program, you should link that mention with the affiliate link. Two years seems to be the turning point for a lot of bloggers where they start making very real, much more steady income.
You can join an affiliate network like Linkshare (I have a button in my sidebar) which makes it easy to find a variety of stores of brands in many different topic areas.
It is an educational tool and is considered an important contribution to a child's development. A pregnancy website will have affiliate links to maternity clothes, baby diapers and cord blood banking. And my click through rates on banner ads are pretty high on this site, but still not THAT high. In addition to that, the sales percentage you are given is minuscule, only 4% or so, compared to many of the other affiliate programs available. When comparing two similar products, price and percentage should be taken into account when making a final decision. With cookies, the website will know that YOU sent the reader first so when the reader goes back a week later and finally purchases, you will still get credit. I love that on this page she lists not only what the item is, but what she loves about it, who it will help, when you should get it, etc.
It might feel that giving more options will lead to more sales but that simply isn’t true. There are some large affiliate networks that make it easy to sign up with big-box stores or large companies. Look at Ejunkie or clickbank or private affiliate programs like my ebooks, problogger, etc where the payout is a bit higher percentage. I suppose it mainly varies for niche to niche, but overall, I’d love to know if you have a specific preference. Look for affiliate programs within Linkshare that you mention or use on a regular basis and start there! Beyond the educational virtues, coloring sessions allow us, the adults, a little peace and quiet while the boy or girl enjoy coloring. However, affiliate links as part of an overall blogging plan (you have one, right?) can be highly successful! Anything where you would source your information or include additional resources for your readers to confirm or expand on what you’re telling them.


This website has affiliate links to WordPress Themes, ebooks and educational stuff for bloggers. My husband, a point guard in high school, is a basketball freak and even with that it took me 5 years and marriage before I realized there were plays in basketball. I like to set up my affiliate programs with a 30 day cookies because that gives a full month for a purchase to take place.
Got the email, thought hey 50% off is a great deal, it was time sensitive, I checked it out, I bought the recordings myself and wrote the post while I was downloading my own learning lessons. The page looks nice and her readers consider it HELPFUL…a useful tool to bookmark and come back to, not a hard-sell-car-salesman feeling thing. Not to mention the result: coloring pages for preschoolers are proudly presented at the nursery, kindergarten or even grandma and grandpa's living room!
Please note the images are not hosted on our servers, hence some of the images might not download. Just add the affiliate link to the book title anytime you mention a book as a source or recommended reading. For a good, recent sample you can see the post I wrote about the Savvy Blogging Summit Recordings Special. I know bloggers who offer affiliate programs for menu planning services or blog design referrals.
If you like to completely remove your website from our search engine index, please follow the instructions below, "Remove from Index". Especially where there are so many other affiliate opportunities that ARE things I actually care about.
That converted so much better for me because people reading the post were more likely to click that link, and also more likely to buy.
They were automatically interested in the topic because they took the time to read a post about that topic.
