Mom's affiliate/google adsense or other suggestions?
« on: Jul 23, 2015 @ 05:20 AM »
So I have been looking into ways to earn money with my blog and I have come up with a few great sites, but I would like everyone else's opinions as well.

1. I use google adsense, but I have made a whole whopping $0.20 with it. Has anyone else had luck with it? I have around 3,000 page views per month (maybe more).

2. Mom's affiliate. I liked this site because I could easily change my banner ads when I wanted to fit with my topics for the month or to match my site when the ads were not purchased. Now, they changed to socialite and I can't find all the programs I signed up with, only programs that you have to write a post for, and these are very limited.  I want to only promote things I believe in, and since I can't find how to change my ads now, I may drop them. Anyone else had issues?

3. Skim links. I really like this one because it changes your links into affiliate links on your site with no extra step, and it tracks your clicks. I have had the most luck with this one, but this is only links to products or stores, which is fine, but I don't link everything.

What I want is to know what you all think of these programs. Also, have you used any other programs and had good luck with them? If I drop mom's affiliate I would like to run ads on my sidebar where the moms affiliate ads are now, so I would like something similar to that. I would also like to have some control over what I advertise on my blog, I don't want random things that look spammy, I want to promote things I believe in!

Thanks in advance for all your help!

I started with Shareasale.com before I learned about any others. I have received a good amount of money from them, so I know it's legit. Their affiliates also occasionally offer a $5-10 bonus for promoting their sales (i.e. Adidas and Reebok). I found Shareasale simply because I wanted to partner with Fitbit and Fitbit uses Shareasale.

I also use MomsAffiliate although I haven't made any money from them. I haven't been to their site for a few days, but I wasn't aware of the change you describe. I will have to check it out (am on my iPhone at the moment).

Thanks! I have heard of share a sale and actually just applied with them, just waiting to hear back. I am glad you have had good resluts with them. I think I have made about $4 with moms affiliate, but that is only for referrals for sign ups.

Please let me know what you think of the changes. I am very frustrated over them. Since you have used them in the past you know what I am talking about when I say it WAS easy to change your ads when you wanted to, now I can't seem to find where to change them or how!

Thanks again!

Hi -

This topic is interesting to me because I just started my blog and would like to monetize it. I know I am new and I don't have a lot of traffic to my blog yet (working on that!!).

Iowaworkingmom - would you be willing to share any tips on how you were able to make money from  Shareasale? I've been with them now with some affiliate for a few weeks and haven't made anything ...yet.

Do you find better luck when you write  a full post about a particular deal with suggestions, etc or just with the affiliate images on your sidebar?

Thanks so much.

Sure, I've made money mostly from advertising coupon codes on Social Media. I also always take advantage of the $5-10 offers for writing a full blog post about the topic of their choice. By the 2nd month I was with them I made about $500 and I've continued to have good luck.
