Being a Stay-At-Home-Mum is not easy. Juggling the time to keep the house clean and the kids occupied is no mean feat. The rare pockets of time that I managed to get, I napped. Not throughout the day though. I would use the time to find some affiliates to link. I’ve used quite a number of affiliates in the past. Adsense was one of it. However, I stopped doing them when I got too caught up in life.
The deal with affiliates is that one has to keep linking and updating because traffic to the site happens only with latest updates. It need not be daily. Even a weekly update would do good. So, I’m trying to get back into the momentum in updating again. Affiliates are pocket money to me. Not a way to live life since affiliates change constantly too. My most recent affiliate is with Rakuten Marketing. There are so many links from there to be used as long as the site is deemed qualified. Come Join the #1 Affiliate Network!.
I prefer to have my own money that I’ve worked for since it just feels better to use it. Although, some might say it’s even more shiok to use money that people give to us. True also. Since affiliate marketing is sort of like digital marketing, I’ve decided to study Squared Online where it provides a 5-month long digital marketing course. It’s developed with Google. Now, we use Google for almost everything. Might as well trust something that has proven itself in its best tool, Google search. Digital Marketing is after all, partially about organic search results.
As I also buy from Qoo10, I’ve become a curator. There are times I found stuff that are worth buying and will introduce them here now and then. It’s another form of affiliate money. Affilite marketing is my favourite form so far as it doesn’t require me to travel to another place to work. I just use my internet that I’m already paying for and use the blog to promote items. We love buying stuff. It makes us happy. Amazon also provide affiliates however, my traffic was deemed unsuitable and thus, I’m no longer affiliated with it. However, if your site has good traffic, you can try your hand using Amazon affiliate.
Here’s my signup link for E Junkie: Join our Affiliate Program!. A place to sell your products too. In case you buy from a lot of different sites, ShopBack is a great way to get back some of that money. Get your 1st $5 from my referral link.
A realistic way to view affiliates for most of us is that the accumulated amount takes time and might take longer than those sites that have higher traffic with higher chances of people clicking and actually buying via the affiliate links. Thus, I would say that affiliates is pocket money for those whose traffic is average. Meanwhile, have fun using affiliates.
