Smart Blogging Skills – Week 8

Week 8 of Smart Blogging Skills is all about Getting Started With Affiliate Marketing By Making Simple Recommendations

You've been looking for a way to monetize your site and affiliate marketing is a good way to create passive income and work smarter.

Passive income is income received on a recurring basis and requires little effort to maintain.  For instance, it is possible that after this blog post is written, I will make money from the affiliate links shared in it.  I've done the work once and the money will come in each time someone makes a purchase through my link based on what they've ready.  I don't have to do much to maintain that income except give the post some love every so often.

Do not be ashamed of making a recommendation. You can read my post on making affiliate sales without selling and Kelly McCausey's post about not psyching yourself out of doing affiliate marketing for more inspiration.

Creating the good habits that Kelly discusses this week now will only help serve your business for the better as you grow.

Like all of the lessons, there is a pdf “summary” and short audio where Kelly give you practical information that breaks this week's tasks down into bite sized pieces and shares what you need to do and why you need to do it.

This Lesson Will Teach You:

  • How to create a list of products to promote
  • An simple but smart way to find affiliate programs for your specific needs
  • Tips on how to write a blog post to recommend a product
