I’ve written before about how I like to take advantage of affiliate programs. This means if you buy, say, the Thesis theme for WordPress.org through my link (which I like to endorse because I use it) or the Negotiating Your Sabbatical toolkit (which I need to write a post about), I get a cut.
Affiliate partnerships are win-win: The affiliate wins because they make money off someone else’s product, and the creator of the product wins because they reach a new audience and sell more products.
I’m now offering an affiliate partnership for my e-guide: How to Build a Part-Time Social Media Business. And it’s a generous affiliate share: If you sell my guide on your website, you’ll get one-third of the profits.
Just like I didn’t envision most of the readers of this blog would buy the guide, I don’t envision most of you will join the affiliate program. Not only do you need a self-hosted website, you’ll also want to have the right audience before you sell this guide, enough readers who might want to become social-media consultants. If this is you, boo-yah!
The people who join my affiliate program also might not need this explanation of how it works. But I like to share these things with my community so you can see the little steps I’m taking toward making money off this blog. It’s kinda fun, right?
