In today’s post, 12 Favorite Affiliate Marketing Link pins we’ll be looking at some of my favorite pins to help you learn about Affiliate Marketing.
“This post contains affiliate links, which means I will make a commission at no
extra cost to you should you click through and make a purchase.“
To see all of my 229 pins for affiliate marketing, please visit my Pinterest account, PinArtwork Blogger – Affiliate Marketing Links.
What is Blogtober?
Blogtober is an annual event for bloggers. It’s one of the best ways for how to grow your Blog
It’s a blogging event held in the month of every October where participating bloggers blog every day the entire month! Yes, every day!
The Blogtober Challenge from last year (2020) brought me so much traffic that it has become my number #1 Pinterest Board with over 2 million Pinterest Impressions within the last 90 days. And to this day I still get traffic from those old posts.
12 Favorite Affiliate Marketing Link pins
The first one is 10 Best Affiliate Marketing tips for Success in 2021 and the other pin is 10 Affiliate Marketing programs everyone should join, with or without a blog. In the 1st pin you’ll learn 10 powerful tips for beginners to become successful at affiliate marketing and make money online. The other one (10 Affiliate Marketing Programs) is a pin from 2020 that describes Affiliate marketing programs every blogger and non blogger should be using to generate up to $450 in commissions.
For the next two pins for my post on 12 Favorite Affiliate Marketing Link pins I have selected the Best Affiliate Marketing Courses and 13 Reasons why your Blog is not making money from Stray Curls. Unfortunately, the link to the 1st pin doesn’t work anymore because I got the page was not found error. But there are still a lot of good affiliate marketing resources that might interest you so I’d suggest you check out the other Ballen Blogger Affiliate Marketing programs.
If you’re constantly seeing other Bloggers showing off their Income Reports and they’re making so much moolah and you want in on the picture and find out how they’re doing it, please check out her site, by clicking tell me how below. The basic principle of how most Bloggers make money and what you need to aim for is my making Sales Funnels.
On the site, Stray Curls, there’s mention about blogging consistently and niche down:
“This means blogging about 1 thing consistently until your audience (which includes people landing on your blog every day) understand that you are an expert in your niche.” This is why most of my recent posts (other than the Blogtober posts) have been about improving your SEO.
“For instance, if I have 100+ posts about make-up on my Blog, no one is going to question that I’m an expert in make up. When you niche down, you will notice that your blog traffic will grow much faster, your bounce rate will decrease and you will earn subscribers/followers faster too!”
Ten profitable affiliate marketing strategies and Affiliate Marketing for Beginners. Darn, there goes another one, I liked the pin (10 profitable …) but it doesn’t work anymore, so I’ve removed the link from the description. I do like this pin, so sometime in the future, after people start buying things from my affiliate links, I’ll make my own affiliate marketing strategies pin with a similar format.
From the pin on the right (Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers) I learned a very important lesson about affiliate marketing today which helps explain to me why my blog hasn’t been doing fairly well in monetizing (a grand total of $19.90):
“Focus On A Single And Appealing Niche
While creating your blog, think of a particular niche or category that you want to focus on when writing your blog so that your blog design – color schemes, photos, and menus complement one another.
Don’t bombard your blog with different niches because they don’t normally sell out. A multi-niche blog is only applicable when creating a personal blog. It doesn’t monetize for you. On the other hand, a blog that focuses on one niche proves to generate sales traffic and you employ other strategies like link building and search engine optimization. Narrowing down your category helps direct your audience with specific interests to your blog site.” This is why I’ve tried to narrow down the posts that I write to concentrate on improving your Search Engine Optimization in order to improve monetizing my blog.
– Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers
From the 1st pin, you’ve heard me say it before so I’m creating a mantra for myself and reinforcing the importance that you need to follow the advice listed below from Hearmefolks.com about selecting a specific niche. The topic I’m passionate about is Pinterest; however, that in itself doesn’t rank or monetize very well so my new focus is on improving your SEO, especially with using Rank Math SEO. One way to improve your SEO is by utilizing my SEO Audit Checklist.
“As a quick reminder, make sure to select a niche that’s ready to make money. Just because a keyword ranks well on Google, it doesn’t mean that you should create a website around it. You should be passionate about the topic personally.Hearmefolk$.com
Once you have decided on your niche, it’s time to start your own money-making blog and take all the necessary steps for effective affiliate marketing. If you’re surpassed all these steps and failing to make money, that’s when you should take all these necessary steps for effective affiliate marketing.”
From the 2nd pin it’s mentioned to make affiliate marketing your priority.
As of lately my personal priority has been to focus on improving my site’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO) scores. I’ve been optimizing most of my posts to get the best and highest possible scores. I’m more than halfway through optimizing post with about 180 more posts to optimize. That should take me through nearly the end of this month to finish that task. So the month of November after Blogtober is finished will be to readjust my focus from SEO to Affiliate Marketing to further monetize my site so that I can demonstrate my Affiliate Marketing expertise.
“Affiliate marketing can be one of the most passive and easiest ways to make money from a blog. Almost every niche can capitalize on the money making opportunities from affiliates. However, having the right attitude will get you the sale. Remember to start by building your reader’s trust. Use numbers, evidence, and videos to help establish it.
The more eyes, the better chance of conversions. Pinterest is a great source of gaining lots of traffic really quickly. Don’t be afraid to invest in your business!”
With the improved traffic that focusing on SEO has been bringing to my site, it’s time for me to make the transition from SEO to Affiliate Marketing and to review my Affiliate Marketing notes from previous classes that I’ve enrolled.
One of the ways for me to make the transition to Affiliate Marketing is to complete the rest of this post (the last four pins) on Affiliate Marketing pins and review my other Affiliate Marketing posts. And make some Pinterest pins to promote this post.
One post that I’m definitely going to put a lot of time and effort into which is getting a lot of clicks (379) within the last 30 days but no conversion is my Fall Decor post called Top 40 Fall Decor Ideas for “important” Holidays with more than 7,000 Social Shares so that I can monopolize on it and actually begin to have it start monetizing.
NOTE: Just in case if you’re wondering, after the Blogtober Challenge is finished, I’m going to be going through all of the Blogtober posts for 2021 and updating the links so that it’ll be easier for you to jump to a topic that might interest you. The reason I haven’t done right now is in case that the suggested title I’ve written has changed it’s that much easier to make one swoop through all of the posts and copy and paste all of the links once they are all published.
In the meantime, if you want to jump to that post you can type the contents of that post in the search bar at the top of the sidebar (i.e., October wallpaper). Another reason that you will want to update all of your links is so that you don’t leave any orphaned files left behind so that your site’s SEO is well structured.
