Using Affiliate Ads in Your Posts

Posted Monday, September 1, 2008 by momscashblog | 27 Comments so far

Here’s some good views and advice about using Affiliate ads on your blog from another blogger. Robert Cyr is one of the many good blogger friend’s I have made here on MomsCashBlog so he has written a post about his experience with Affiliate ads and Affiliate Marketing.

Making Money with Affiliate Marketing – Crash Course

I have been an avid follower of MomsCashBlog ever since JJ took over the reigns. My name is Robert Cyr and if you have read some of the comments here my name might be familiar to you. If you have researched blogging I am certain that you have read that blogging is about networking and establishing friendships. I am pleased to let you know that JJ and I have emailed back and forth on several occasions sharing and helping each other out.

Let me give you a little of my background; I started blogging back in March of 2008 with the sole intent of making money. Yeah, I know they say if your goal from the beginning is to make a ton of money chances are you will fail. I am proof positive that what “They Say” is not always true!

I have four blogs, two of which I keep secret as they are my “Bread and Butter” and are very niche specific. When I comment on JJ’s blog I always leave a link to one of my blogs about Wholesale Closeout Merchandise. In addition to my own blogs, I am a freelance contracted writer on several other blog like TopTenWholesale.com

I am going on my seventh month blogging and I am making money. I am making more money than I thought possible…and it grows each month. I have shared one of my last checks from Commission Junction with MomsCashBlog readers….Here it is again.

JJ asked if I would take some time to help her community understand affiliate marketing and I am pleased to share what little information I have learned since I started. Please note that there is tons of information on the Internet showing you how to make money blogging, but I will honestly tell you that there is no “One Guaranteed” way. My success has come from intense reading and trial and error.

I want to share with you a simple concept today that has brought serious dollars my way. In the affiliate world there is jargon to learn. Every industry has terminology which you need to understand. Today I will share a couple of terms:

Landing Page –- A Landing page is simply a page your visitors reach by some means of Internet search. This page is typically where the affiliate marketer would review and talk about a product and hopefully send the visitor on to the site selling a product or service. A Landing page is where you, as a publisher, must convince your visitor that the product or service you are reviewing is worth the purchase.

If you investigate landing page techniques on the Internet you will find that many affiliate marketers spend hundreds of dollars in PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising to get visitors to Landing pages.

Do not be afraid! Here is what I have learned and I have made thousands of dollars without spending one cent on PPC advertising… Are you ready for the big secret?

Every blog post you write is a landing page. Blog posts are indexed almost immediately in Google. I can write a blog post and within hours someone out there has found it by keyword search.

When you write a blog post and fill it with appropriate keywords you will get Organic Traffic.

Organic Traffic -– The best traffic to have to your website or blog because it is FREE. Organic traffic is any traffic that comes to your site without being paid for

Lets make a little formula for earning money through affiliate marketing:

Start a blog + Write blog Posts (Landing Pages with affiliate offers) = Commissions through Organic Traffic

Caution! Make sure that each post you write has value. This is why most successful bloggers will tell you that you must be passionate about the topics you blog about.

For example: If you love cooking, blog about cooking. Write blog articles about preparing meals, buying ingredients and maybe entertaining with food. You can integrate affiliate offers in each blog post such as… A blog post about pan frying steaks might chronicle the advantages of using Rachael Rays non-stick cookware. And then, of course insert your affiliate link to Rachael Rays cookware, where your blog readers can visit and hopefully buy the set of pans you are promoting. Viola! You have just earned a commission!

You cannot monetize a blog without first having a blog. If you have been reading JJ’s blog for sometime thinking about starting your own blog…what are you waiting for? If you want to become an affiliate marketer making money blogging about your passion (Whatever that might be) get started with JJ’s FREE blog tutorial. It will guide you through the process of staring your own blog and hopefully a second income!

Questions about affiliate marketing? Ask me through comments- Let me know if you learned anything through my rambling and maybe I can make a future guest post.

I am so sorry to keep everyone waiting. I have read some of the comments and thanks for all them, I will try to answer some of them. Thanks neeshy.com for your comment “jj is a new blogger and things are probably a little hecitc for her.” New, hectic Hell I’m shaking in my boots. I only hope I can get through these next few days. Kyrsti has been training me and I do mean training I need everything she has inside that pretty little head of hers. She is one smart and savvy woman, but she had faith that I could do this so I have made my mind up that I will do it and hopefully do it well. I know I will have a few stumbles along the way but can only hope that you will all stick with me and help me out. I do want this MOMSCASHBLOG to be an interactive vehicle where we will help each other in our quest to make money blogging online. Earlier today I had a post all written and looked it over several times and thought it was good and ready to go out into the WorldWideWeb (that’s a scary thought) I hit the button Publish and it is not anywhere to be found. So much for the WWW, tonight when I get my tutoring from Krysti I hope she doesn’t give me a bad grade. I take notes but somewhere along the line I messed up, when I find out what I did wrong I will share with all of you. Hopefully you will also share your “first times” on blogging, publishing, or any of your other first. I had plans for my first post to tell you how I first began back in
December looking for a way to make money online. I had put in several searches and came up with many different ways to make money at home online by filling out surveys. I started to sign up for the surveys and would sit at the computer minutes upon minutes checking off the apporiate boxes. Then it would turn into hours and when one page had been checked off you hit next and then another page, there seemed to be no end. It was like a black hole-next-next well when I finally finished a couple of those surveys, I will tell you I have never received any money from any of the survey companies. I am sure a lot of you have gone down that survey road with little or no results. Let us all know about your experiences with surveys or any other money making scams on-line. You will see to the right that MCB has an ad for SURVEY SAVVY now this is one that I will be filling out and working on. I feel anything that Krysti has endorsed is worth all of us signing up for it. Even if it is only $20. here and there that will help all of us out one way or another. With the economy the way it is, gas prices and the rise in certain food product then we can all use any money that we can make. I just have issues with making $2.00 or .50 cents on filing out surveys for hours at a time. But let me explain that I never made any money from any of the surveys that I did fill out. As Krysti explained in her webcam I am new to the blogging world and I have so far made a grand total of 11cents. That’s it, honestly why would one kid about something so important as their income. lol I promise to tell you all the very interesting stories of how I made that 11cents on-line. I want to make mcb an interactive vehicle where we can all share our flips

or flops from online experiences. I just filled out the SURVEY SAVVY form tonight and it was very easy. I also saw that Krysti had made about $300.00 from filling out surveys and that was for a month! So I guess we had all better get right onto that and fill out the form for SURVEY SAVVY. As I had said I trust anything that Krysti endorses and this is definitly one of those endorsements. I also wanted to bring to your or anyones attention that if you click on the free tutorial above you will find an informative and an easy to follow guide on how to set up your own blog online. Blogging is a new way to make money online, I guess it’s not all that new but to some of us especially myself it is something I came upon in the last few months. If you click on the above tutorial on how to set up a blog then click onto Mr. Lincoln the shiny new penny and use your credit card or your debit card to pay your one cent you will get a host for only a penny after you enter the info.,codes ect. You are now on your way to starting your own blog and hopefully make money online. So please feel free to drop by and leave your comments or any suggestions that you would like to see on the new mcb. I am hoping that we will make this a community of bloggers who will help each other with the money, technical, content, and artistic ways of putting a great blog out to the world. Don’t forget to tune in again to hear about my very interesting story of how I made “now hang on don’t get too excited” a whopping big 11cents!!!!!! Yes you heard me right…don’t hate me for making money.

See ya,
