What is affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is often the easiest way to start earning money on your Blog as a newbie blogger.
This is because it is often about promoting other people’s products that you have used before, or you believe in.
By promoting these products, you make money by getting a commission once you make a sale.
Product creators use this idea to get people to market their products, It’s a win-win idea.
For some of the affiliates I mentioned in my checklist, you can make up to 60% of the products price as a commission when you make a sale.
Affiliate marketing is one income avenue you can easily use to start monetizing your blog right from the beginning without creating your own products.
If you are good on affiliates, you may even find it earns you a chunk of your Blog income before you start creating your own products.
There is one snag about affiliates though, not all affiliates will accept your application to be an affiliate of their products because they have their own specifications on the type of audience they want and the number of followings you have on social media.
While that reason can motivate some people to go work on their numbers, it can also discourage some few people.
What you need to know about Affiliate Networks
When I started my blogging journey, I thought I will be accepted on every affiliate network I applied to once I had my domain name and a few posts on my blog but it wasn’t so.
I wished there was a list that could show me which ones will accept me and which ones will not so I could focus on applying to those ones instead of going through rejects.
So I have created a checklist of some affiliate networks that will easily accept a newbie Blogger.
