Shake The Money Tree and Monetize Your Blog

 

Shake The Money Tree and Monetize Your Blog

I want to wish you good luck monetizing your blog and I am here to help you learn how!

Time to Shake The Money Tree and Monetize Your Blog!

I have worked as an affiliate manager for over 2 years on multiple blogs and I would love to share what I have learned with you. Do I know everything about affiliates? No, but I bet that whatever I miss someone here will have that company affiliate or information you need.

Before I get started I ask that if you do share this information with other bloggers please let them know you got it from me. I would also appreciate your use of my referral links below to sign up as a "thank you" since I am giving you this great information on how to Monetize your blog free of charge, and I know it will help you if you follow these simple steps!

NOW to get started!

So you want to make money, and Monetize your blog with affiliates aye?

Well let me tell you, it is no walk in the park. I am not saying that to scare you off, only to inform you. Once you get into affiliates, it's like a black hole. LOL There are so many options and companies out there, that you can become stuck and put off. If you go gung ho you may burn out. I remember there was a week that I had so much going on managing affiliates that I did burn out & I had to step away for a few days to get my bearing again. Like I said, I say that to prepare you. Do not be scared of making money via affiliates and remember you can always step away from the computer.
So if you are ready to take the plunge, read on!

Remember that you do not want to over run your site with affiliates unless it is an affiliate driven site. Most people find a good medium of 70% Content-30% affiliate or 80%-20%.

Step 1.
What kind of blog do you have?
You always want to take to mind what type of blog you have. If you have a blog that is all about your dog for example you do not want to have affiliates for baby toys.
Keep your content, and affiliates closely related in some way.

Step 2.
KNOW Your Audience!
What do your fans like? Do you think if you spend time writing a post for say parachuting are your fans going to go read it? If your audience base is moms you want affiliates moms can relate to or something they would buy for a family member. Affiliates are there to make You Money not Waste Your Time.

Now that you have thought about the first two steps lets take some time to talk about affiliates and payday.

One of the things you should take a look at when signing up with affiliates is:
How much money you need to accumulate to be paid, and Net payout (How long it will take for them to pay you). You also want to see how they pay you. Paypal, check or direct deposit.

Sometimes this can get confusing with all the different companies out there & that's why I keep a google doc of who I work with and when they pay.
Some companies will pay you at 5 days from the end of the month, and other's have a net 30 meaning you won't be paid for 30 days after the month ends. Sometimes that 30 day wait can be hard especially if it's your top money maker for your affiliates. There are a few affiliates out there that will only pay by check so if you can't do that I suggest not signing up for those.

I bet your ready for me to post my favorite affiliates to work with now!
Well I am!

I am going to post my favorite sites to work with first! I am using my affiliate referral links I would appreciate it if you signed up under them. If you don't want to I understand, but I would be very thankful!

 

1.
My Number 1 all time favorite affiliate network is:
Share A Sale Join Here —>
 Join shareasale.com, Earn Cash!

ShareASale is a great affiliate network for all blogs. They have so many different companies in their network that you are bound to find something that works with your blog. Plus you can get reviews from quite a few of the companies on ShareASale. Payout as low as $5o and they pay on the 20th of the month.


Another reason I love ShareASale… BONUS POSTS!
Bonus Posts are from companies you are signed up with. They will email you a "sample post" that you can put your own twist on, or in some cases they tell you want they want & you write it. Most pay between $5-$10 a post. I have had a few $20 bonus posts one $50 post & 1 $100 bonus post. You can also get an email to have their banner on your site to get a bonus from them.(I will list companies I know that have bonus posts below).


Bonus posts make great money around the Holidays. If you are signed up with enough you can make a decent profit in November and December. Last year I made about $600 just in bonus posts in November. A few of the brands on ShareASale also have blogger giveaways, and contests. (I will post these companies at the end of this post). There is 1 downfall with ShareASale & that is that a handfull of companies do not work with New York Bloggers due to tax reasons.
***A bonus post is like a sponsored post. You are paid to post an article that has your affiliate links in it promoting new products or giveaways. The affiliate links help drive more income from these posts as well as being paid to write the post***

2.
My #2 is Amazon.com
Join here —>
 https://affiliate-program.amazon.com 
Amazon has everything, and once you get use to the set up it is fairly easy to use.
writing a post using your amazon links has great advantages. You can do a round up post for something like "Top 5 baby toys", and include your amazon link for each item. Once your post gets around and goes viral your bound to make some cash. Amazon is really great when they have specials for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. All you need to do is keep and eye on the deal and share it on your page.

3.
My #3 site is:
Escalate join here
Escalate has never been my top money maker, but I love the low $25 payout at net 15. Escalate also has a great Enfluencer program that connects brands to bloggers. One of the latest programs they had was for American Doll. They also have a great coupon widget if you include coupons on your blog. Escalate is starting to do bigger things so it's a great site to join even if the offers they have right now don't fit your blog.

4.
My #4 site is:
CPADNA (Dedicated Media)

Join CPADNA here 

CPA has been one of my top earners in the past. It's easy to use, and has a lot of great offers.
You may think why is it not #1 if It made me so much. Well here is why: $100 payout, net 30, and pays by check only. I also think that some of the offers they have can be spamy so you have to be careful when you check them out. Some offers are 3rd party offers, and that means you could have converting issues.


Why I like them: Some offers allow you to post direct links! This is great if you don't want to write a full post. You can just put the direct link on your FB or Twitter pages. My account manager is amazing. She always tries her best with any questions or concerns I have.
Pay Per Click campaigns! They get a few of these campaigns a month, and most of those are able to be direct links. My favorite is Amazon Local which usually pays 35 cent a click. In May I made $800+ just on amazon local. (I did have a site with 25,000 Fb fans & 10,000+ twitter followers) so If you have a smaller following you may not make that much. These campaigns go fast though so you have to be quick.

FUN Attractions and Events for your family FREE:

I don't do as much affiliate work as I use to because I wanted the chance to do more with the family. I love going and visiting new places/attractions. I want to share a great network that does just that for bloggers!

Do you need to add a monitor but don’t have the traditional port open? No problem, this is perfect for adding additional monitors quickly and easily! Very simple to use! An adapter is required for every monitor you wish to connect via USB, up to six adapters per PC.  I did find that  it is not Windows 8 compatible. That is a downer for the new laptop I purchased last Christmas.

Liztek TechnologyLiztek USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI Video Graphics Adapter Card for Multiple Monitors 

This adapter is excellent as well for connecting multiple monitors. As a blogger, this is perfect for me. I can have several screens open at once and see everything I need. One slide of the mouse and I am off to the other screen and able to do what I want over there too! I would highly reccommend this to my blogger pals, anyone training in a classroom setting, and gamers! Well worth the cost, easy to install/use, and excellent quality.

Details
Stylish space-saving design that complements any room decor.
Engineered to generate more air velocity with noiseless airflow.
Features 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to help you sleep, relax and comfort you, and 3 whisper-quiet speed settings with 90 degree oscillation for optimal air circulation.
Includes 12 hour timer that can be programmed in 1 hour increments with push-button ease, and a remote control that conveniently stores in the fan.

Ozeri Tower Fans with Noise Reduction Technology  Ozeri 3x Tower Fan (44") with Passive Noise Reduction Technology


Details
Fan blades that utilize blade curvature to generate opposing sound waves to reduce blade noise and isolate the soothing sounds of the airflow itself.
The 3x Tower fan is engineered with 3 independently controllable fans and 3 fan speeds, offering up to 9 levels of cooling and customized airflow.
The 3x Tower fan is among the world's thinnest fans at less than 3 inches thick and is a visually attractive design.
Features 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to help with sleep, relaxation and comfort. 90 degree whisper-quiet oscillation for optimal air circulation.
Remote control and the touch sensitive LED control panel provide easy access to all features, including a 7.5 hour timer that can be programmed in 30 minute increments.

 

 

 

Both of these fans are excellent, quiet, and have a great amount of air out-put! My friends thought the 44" fan was a stereo speaker. They were shocked when I explained it and demonstrated it for them! We have the 42'" fan in the living room for those evenings when we need that gentle breeze to help the temperature stay even. It has the temperature reading and we watched it reduce as it ran. It cooled off the living room without making it too cool. We keep the 44" fan in the bedroom. We have the upstairs apartment and always hot when we try to sleep. The neighbor loves the thermostat! We are melting and she is kicking it on more and more. Whew! We have tried other fans, but they are so loud! This one is quiet and works on a timer.

No matter which one you choose, they both offer equal comfort and a gentle breeze without the loud noise of regular fans!

Hot Hasbro Toys

Hot Hasbro toys have landed on the Thoughts of Happiness Holiday Radar!

Hot Hasbro Toys

Thank you Hasbro for providing the Easy Bake Ultimate Oven & NERF Rebelle Agent Bow Blaster for review!

Hot Hasbro Toys

The special edition color of this Easy Bake Ultimate Oven commemorates the 50th anniversary of Easy Bake bringing baking fun to the little foodies of the kitchen! This oven comes with baking pan, pan tool, chocolate chip cookie mix and instructions! Perfect for young children, ages 8+, that love to cook, bake, and create!

How many of you remember the easy bake oven? I loved mine. I would bake treats for my siblings! Actually, they would just take the treats and run off leaving me pretty agitated. Being the youngest of 7 children, I didn't stand a chance of winning the battle. Those yummy snacks were for my Daddy's lunch box and a surprise for him! I'm not sure how my Mother didn't pull all of her hair out with all of us fussing about silly things.Those were the days! 

Speaking of the good ol' days, did you know that Easy Bake Oven made the big debut in 1963? In its first year, over 500,000 lucky kids talked their parents into spending $15.95 and it was turquoise. It was invented by designers at Kenner Products (now a division of Hasbro). You can read the 50+ years history of the Easy Bake Oven here.

CAUTION – SUPERVISION REQUIRED ELECTRIC TOY- UNPLUG WHEN NOT IN USE. 

Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. As with all electric products, precautions should be observed during handling and use to prevent electric shock. Input: 120V AC, 60Hz, 100W, UL Listed

 

Hot Hasbro Toys

NERF REBELLE AGENT BOW BLASTER – Secrets and Spies set allows you to send secret messages right on the arrow! The removable red decoder that is included with the bow reveals what the designs conceal on the arrow shaft! The bow has an electronic red-dot sight so you can line up your shot. Press the trigger to activate the sight as you prepare to release the arrow. Nerf Rebelle Message Arrows shoot up to 85 feet away and the arrows make a whistling sound as they fly through the air. I thought that I was hearing things at first when we did a trial shot!

This is a lightweight & durable toy! We had a blast trying it out, reading the messages, and trying to hit a target. The arrows really flew far! Mine didn't go the full 85 ft. because I didn't want to walk that far to recover them. I guess I am getting lazy in my older blogger age! It is a little different than the bows that I grew up with! I had the youth sized compound bow and practiced so I could go out hunting with my brothers. They never let me go with them, but a girl can dream!

You can really have a lot of fun with this bow and arrow set. BUT…you aren't Katniss! Do not fire the arrows at someone! This toy is for children ages 8+ and parents need to monitor the use of this toy. It does have projectiles! The archery set comes with bow, quiver, arrows, and decoder. It will require 2 AAA Batteries for the electronic red dot sight to work. Assembly by an adult is required with a phillips screwdriver, not included!

CAUTION: Do not aim at eyes or face.

TO AVOID INJURY: Use only arrows designed for this product. Do not modify arrows or bow. Discontinue use if either end of arrow shaft becomes exposed.

Time for the gift wrap and pretty bows for these hot Hasbro toys! One very special young lady will be very excited to show off her baking skills and archery skills on Christmas morning!

Which one of these toys would your child like the most?

The EX – We all need one!

The EX

So, how many of you thought I was talking about an old relationship? Well, you are slightly right! The EX is a great knife set that is a fun conversational piece that you can't resist showing off. You will also take great pleasure in putting the knives back in the holder! It aggravates me to no end when the knives don't go back into the cutlery block! Not a problem anymore. Everyone here seems to really enjoy putting them up now! Hmmm…. I wonder why??

If you’re looking for a beautifully crafted luxury-designer gift that makes a statement, I would  suggest  The Ex Voodoo Knife Holder perfect for the bachelor or bachelorette! Ever feel like getting back at your ex? Well, here’s your chance! 
Celebrating a divorce or a difficult breakup? Meet The EX knife holder, a one of a kind kitchen display designed in Italy by Raffaele Iannello. It’s a conversation piece that can be placed in your kitchen, displayed in your living room or even on your coffee table. And with all the holidays coming up, It makes a great gift! I have many friends asking for mine. Uh…NO!

The EX
Raffaele Iannello is a noted designer in Europe and his products are varied. He was born in 1974 and has established himself in Italy as one of the finest young designers in Europe. As most designers, Raffaele Iannello takes his designs quite seriously while adding both the elements of humor, and tongue in cheek qualities in each product as well as an innovative style.

The Ex has been featured on a number of news outlets including The View, NBC’s Open House, The Rachel Ray Show, The Today Show, and numbers NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX affiliates across the country.

Not only is this a fun addition to your home, it is also well made! The knives are quality Molybdenum-vanadium stainless-steel knives! The patented Magnetic Suspension System holds knives firmly in place. No worries, you can tilt the Voodoo Doll forward (as seen in the photos above) and the knives don't fall out. My EX knife set is made of ABS Plastic and sells for an ARV $159. It has an updated figure with tapered base, weighted bottom to add stability,  and crystal clear and form-fitting knife sheathes. Hidden rollers protect the blades and the handles are ergonomic! They are comfortable in your hand and make cutting much easier. Careful, these are razor sharp blades! This unit comes with a 2 year warranty!

So if you have a bad day or have a need to stick it to an EX, this is the way to go!
