I talked about how many different ways there are for artist and crafters to make money online in one of my previous articles, today I would like to talk about Affiliate Marketing.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
If you are already a blogger and you would like to turn your blog into your business there is something you can do.
First, be clear about what your goals are when you are a blogger.
There is two kinds of bloggers, the one who wants to share with the rest of the world about he or she does, its art and crafts.
Blogging this way can be a way to keep a personal diary about your work. You might get some visits or not but you will be happy doing this.
But if you decide to turn your blog into a money making stream to make a living or to support your passion, crafts and arts are not cheap, to work on them can mean lots of money on your materials.
When you get to this point, after you have been reading about different ways to make money online, you will discover from the simplest way to do it to the most elaborate and expensive ways to do it.
To make money you need to invest some money.
Lest talk about if you decide to sell your art or crafts on line, you have your own blog and you want to sell your products from it, you will need to produce some products to have them in stock, when someone buy one from you then you can ship it to your client.
To have a stock will cost you money, to own your own online store on your blog will cost you money and also you will need to learn how to do it, and I’m sure you will learn it and you will do it ok.
But there is a easy way to start making some extra money from your blog and you can learn how to do it and won’t cost lots of money from you.
Start promoting some products from your blog and you will get a % of each sale, affiliate marketing.
Let me explain a little bit more about it.
Lets talk about your typical day is to work on your studio doing what you love to do, but if you don’t sell what you do, the chances to get the money to pay all those bills you need to pay every month, the probabilities for you to work full time on what you love to do will be little.
What about if you give the chance to start making affiliate marketing from your blog.
There is always people interested on the same niche you do. They will stop at your blog to see your pieces of art, and they might dream of one day be able to do the same, this is all about what blogs are, aren’t they?
Each of us who writes a blog is to help others, we use to share what we do and how we do it.
And we also share the tools and the knowledge we use to make every piece of art we do.
Your blog visitors will see on your pictures you use certain kind of brushes when you share a painting, or they might be wondering where did you get that beautiful yarn to knit that sweater you’re sharing the pattern.
Well, making money on affiliate marketing is about this, when you talk about your tools and materials you use to make your art, you can share a link where your blog visits can buy it.
Every time your blog visits buy from an affiliate link you will get paid a % of the price your visitors paid for it.
You will get paid via your PayPal account every month, then you will be making an extra income.
It might begin little at the beginning, an online business is not the magic some people promise to you, you won’t be making 10 K the first month.
You will need to learn more about how to set your blog and how to link and talk about it from your blog.
With time and good work you will do it better and better, and one day you can make a full income on affiliate marketing.
Many people are doing it and they are doing it good.
