Okay, so who here has heard of affiliate programs? If you’re a blogger and you’re interested in making money (without needlessly spamming your readers) you probably have. But, if you haven’t, I love you all and would be quite happy to share with you.
Affiliate programs are basically an advertising scheme for bloggers; instead of hosting annoying ads that your viewers don’t particularly want to see, you can advertise specific products and deals and – if anyone purchases through your link – you receive a small commission of usually 5-10%. Now, this is quite useful for makeup and beauty bloggers because, when they post a review, they can just add a link to the product they’re reviewing and, if anyone buys it, they receive a little money.
And, because your readers won’t read or click or even be interested if you’re just endlessly spamming them, it doesn’t really effect the quality of your writing. (See, you’re not a sell-out. It’s okay!) Also, you have to individually sign up for each program, so you only really pick the sites you like.
Now, because I love you all, I’m going to include a list of all the sites I’m an affiliate for, so you can either check them out, or join them: (A lot of these are really easy to get into, so you don’t need to worry about your blog following or anything like that)
