A few weeks ago I published a group interview with 26 different bloggers talking about their favorite methods for monetizing a blog. Many of those blogging experts mentioned affiliate marketing as one of their favorite ways to make money from a blog, and so I thought it would be helpful to write a detailed article about why and how bloggers can make money through affiliate programs. If you’re looking to make more from your own blog one of the best possibilities is to increase the amount you are making as an affiliate.
One of the most effective and most popular ways to make money online is affiliate marketing. As an affiliate marketer you will probably be managing several different websites and promoting multiple affiliate products, which can become quite cumbersome to manage. Fortunately, there are a number of excellent WordPress plugins that affiliate marketers can use to accomplish different things that will help to save time and make more money.
In this post I’ll feature 25 different affiliate marketing plugins for WordPress users. These plugins cover a wide variety of functionality, so please browse through the collection and I think you’ll find at least a few that can help you in one way or another. Some of them are free and others must be purchased. Basic pricing information is included in all of the descriptions below, but please click through to the site of the seller for more details.
If you want to sell products from your website or blog you will be faced with the decision of creating your own products to sell or acting as an affiliate to promote other people’s products. Both provide excellent opportunities, but there are some unique pros and cons that should be considered. In this article we’ll take a look at these pros and cons, and hopefully this can help you to decide which path is right for you.
