18 Programs to Monetize Your Blog


Most bloggers fail at making money because they don't have good programs to help them make money.

I have compiled two blog posts sharing some great affiliate programs that pay a decent amount.

If you have a blog, you might want to take a look at these and see if the programs would fit your specific blog.

You can read the two articles here:

The 18 programs vary across many niches. There are programs that fit food blogs, financial blogs, fitness blogs even romance and adult blogs.

There are a couple of key factors to make these programs work and without boring you to death, I'll give you three tips to help you increase your chances of making money. Check out these 3 short tips.

1. Collect your visitors name and email address!

Using a lead magnet, ask your readers for their email and name so you can contact them with future blog posts, special offers, and other interesting and valuable content. Most people that visit a blog for the first time will not come back so it is critical for you to build your email list right away to invite them back.

I recommend one of these three services to manage your email autoresponder and newsletter: Aweber, Getresponse or Mailchimp.

2. Sign up for affiliate programs instead of ad networks.

Signing up for ad networks like Adsense is easy and quick, but unless you have some really good traffic, and I mean really good, like 3000 or more visitors per day then Adsense may not be the best way to monetize your blog. Instead, look for individual affiliate programs offered by brands and products that your readers can relate to. You can also sign up for affiliate networks that have many merchants organized under one dashboard.

Three of my favorite affiliate networks are: Shareasale, Refersion, and Peerfly.

3. Use a branded email address.

You're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but people do. When you apply for a new affiliate program or a new affiliate network using a branded private email address, you'll look more professional than if you used a free email address like Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail.

Most hosts have free email that comes with them when you host your website with them. If yours doesn't, you can take a look at one of these to get email branded with your own domain to match your website: Inmotion Hosting, GreenGeeks Hosting, or Siteground.
