Monetizing Your Blog with Affiliate Marketing
Many businesses have learned to harness the power of bloggers and social media to increase sales. It is a win-win for the company and social media influencers alike.
How many messages about Amazon Prime Day did you see besides those from Amazon? My newsfeeds were full of suggested items and wishlists.
These Amazon affiliates (bloggers and other social media folks) helped promote the one-day sales event to their audience. Any sales made by people clicking through the personalized link resulted in a payment to the affiliate. All for writing a social media post or sending an e-mail.
There are all sorts of affiliate opportunities. Big companies like Amazon. Smaller organizations like the IBA. There are networks that manage the affiliate business for hundreds of companies while some companies handle things themselves.
