Yep, this section is on MONEY MONEY MONEY, MONEYYYY (sings song)! Blogging is fun, but sometimes it can be nice to make a little dough. And if this is your business, then of course, you need to see the green.
Brands will often sponsor you as an influencer, through products, services, and even compensation. But what about easy, cash? Let me introduce you to affiliate marketing. This is where you recommend a product within your content, using a special link that will give you a portion of the commissions if purchased. A.k.A. passive income!!!
How can you get started?
Choose your niche.
Research different affiliate programs and products.
Build a site.
Produce excellent content.
Build an audience.
Promote your affiliate product(s).
An affiliate promotes one or multiple affiliate products and tries to attract and convince potential customers of the value of the merchant’s product so that they actually end up buying it.
I use affiliate marketing across my blog and social media sites. It may take a while to get going, but soon you will be reaping the benefits.

So, let the passive income begin! 🙂
