You’ve picked your niche and created your blog. Now you are working hard to drive traffic to your blog. But you know that the path to making money through affiliate marketing could take some time while your work on building your traffic. However, you don’t have to wait for huge amounts of traffic and conversions before you make money on your blog.
Making money with a blog is easier than you may think. Consider signing up with a pay per post site while you are working on building your traffic. These are sites that will pay you a set amount to write an article on behalf of an advertiser. These sites can pay anywhere between $5.00 to upwards of $20 for a single article. Sites such as Blogvertise will accept your blog so long as it has original quality writing regardless of your pagerank or how much traffic your bring in and pay out an average of $20.00 per assignment. In addition, many of these sites also have traditional pay per click or pay per impression advertising campaigns that you can join.
You can take on a few assignments a month and easily earn enough money to cover your overhead for your blog and earn a little profit for yourself. You may consider setting aside a page on your site for these articles, so you don’t divert from the main topic of your blog.
In the meantime, you can continue building up your traffic in preparation for earning larger profits through your affiliates in the future.
