“Tired of not making the money you want with your blog? We about why you need to get you started with making money with your blog using easy affiliate marketing.
You already spend SO. MUCH. TIME creating blog posts, shooting videos, taping podcast episodes, and interacting with your audience on social media.
All of these things could be a full-time job in itself. Since you’re an entrepreneur, you probably are juggling all of these things at the same time that you’re working in your business. No wonder we find ourselves tired and exhausted at the end of the day.
Producing valuable free content on a consistent basis has become an essential part of virtually everyone’s business marketing strategy. It’s not enough to show up at a networking event once a month and send out a few cold pitches every quarter to get a solid client base. But how can you utilize your free content so you can start making money with your blog?
We have to show clients and customers that we are experts and are the right choice for them to work with, meaning free content creation becomes a huge part of our day-to-day lives. But how do we make sure we’re optimizing our efforts even with free content?
What if I told you that many entrepreneurs are making money on autopilot from their free content, even years after publishing a blog post or video?
Wait, there must be some kind of catch, right? It seems crazy to think that bloggers could create an income from content that their readers aren’t paying for, but there is a way.
I’m talking about affiliate marketing.
Why affiliate marketing to make money blogging?
Affiliate marketing is performance-based marketing that rewards its users for promoting its products and services to their network. You can earn a cut of every purchase that is made through your unique affiliate link.
Did you know 15% of all digital media revenue comes from affiliate marketing? The percentage continues to grow as more and more bloggers take a serious look into how they can incorporate affiliate marketing into their overall marketing strategy.
You may have heard of popular bloggers and online educators like Pat Flynn and Melyssa Griffin who make sizable incomes from affiliate marketing, but what about those who are just starting out? Are you still able to make an income online through affiliate marketing?
While it’s unrealistic to put a few affiliate links into your blog posts and expect to quit your day job or take an all-expense paid trip the next day (although that would be awesome!), you CAN start building affiliate-driven blog content with massive long term potential.

Instead of putting everything I know about affiliate marketing into one blog post (which would make it multiple novels long and no one wants that!), I wanted to created some additional quick-start guides for entrepreneurs like you who want to learn more about it.
The next month will be dedicated to peeling back the curtain and giving you real insights into incorporating affiliate marketing into your business model.
What inspired this topic?
I remember what it was like to enter the world of affiliate marketing as a total newbie, feeling my way through the process as I turned my affiliate links into major dollar signs. I’m sharing everything I’ve learned about affiliate marketing, including the wins and (major) losses.
I was also inspired by my time at Alt Summit last month when part of our Get Found Stock team connected with other creative entrepreneurs and got feedback about our stock photo membership community. I was amazed to see how many people were interested not only in joining our GFS membership community, but also in becoming one of our affiliates.
After talking with the team, we decided to devote the rest of this month to affiliate marketing. Stay tuned in the next few weeks for even more information on how to get started with affiliate marketing. In the meantime, sign up for our newsletter for blog post updates!
