When starting a blog, the question I get most is ‘How do I Make Money Blogging'? Well, I'm going to share with you the basics of where to get started. Plus a few secrets. So let's get started. If you still need to set up your blog, check out How to Start a Blog. Then come back here and get started.
Few things to keep in mind. Now you need to have content on your blog, and some of these affiliates will require you to be 30 – 60 days old. Some won't, so you will have to apply in batches.
Now you need to have content on your blog and some of these affiliates will require you to be 30 – 60 days old. Some won't, so you will have to apply in batches.
These first few get offers that change all the time. Offer cap out fast and sometimes in just a few hours so if you want to run something do so quickly. Make sure to follow the rules for each offer.
Most will pay via check or PayPal unless stated.
Escalate – This was one of the first affiliates I signed up with. They have coupons, kids friendly offers, family offers, freebies, financial and more.
Shop Her Media – This was formally MySavings. They have lots of great changing offers, with restriction on some like having to use certain verbiage or not using certain words. Just read it over.
Panthera Network – This one has some offers that are unique to them. Make sure you sort through them and do the offers your self first because they do have as many spammy ones as they do good ones. It's worth signing up and looking around.
Dedicated – What you see listed in their offers section isn't always everything they have. They have many offers they get a certain amount of leads on so they only offer it to websites that fit what the advertiser is looking for. So be on contact with your affiliate manager.
The following affiliates are Networks that have different companies in them. Do if you talk about Best Buy you can have a link and anything bought from your link you earn a commission. It's great way to not change how you are posting and just link to item you talk about and earn money! They don't have to buy THAT item they can buy any item on the site as long and they go through your link. Each network will have a different variation of sites and some companies may be on more than one network.
With these networks you will have to ask to join each individual advertiser separately, so make sure your profile is fully filled out this si what they will approve or deny you on.
Link Share – This one has companies like Best Buy, Crocs, e.l.f cosmetics, Nordstrom and Starbucks.
FlexOffers – They work with companies like Macys, DirecTv, Kohls, Trip Adivsor and more.
Then this is the mother of all affiliates.
Amazon – You can link to almost anything on Amazon and any of their program earn you money too! Link to your recipe ingredients or items needed for that craft project. Talking about the new curtains you hung up? Link to curtains on Amazon, the possibilities are endless.
Also, I recommend the Zycon Influencer Program – This is my biggest way to save money on meat and I am able to earn money by promoting. You would be surprised how many of your readers would love it!

I am a Wife, mom to 4 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
