How Affiliate Programs Work For Personal Finance Bloggers
Want a quick rundown of how affiliate marketing can work for your personal finance blog?
Here are the general steps on how to get started with making money from the programs below.
1. Make sure you have an established blog that has some content already. Don’t have a blog yet? Follow my step-by-step tutorial on how you can start your own personal finance blog.
2. Sign up with affiliate networks. Each affiliate network will house a variety of finance affiliate programs that you can apply to after you’ve signed up with the network. You’ll have to pick and choose which ones to join depending on which brands they offer, their commission rates, and commission periods.
Here are a few good affiliate networks that I’ll be mentioning in the post below:
- Rakuten Linkshare
- Awin (A $5 deposit is required when you first sign up but this will be returned to you once you cash out your earnings for the first time)
3. Apply to your affiliate programs. Once you’ve been approved by the network, you can apply to each individual affiliate program.
Be sure to carefully read the fine print of any contracts that you have to sign. You’ll then have to wait to get approved by the affiliate manager before you are a part of the program.
4. Ta-da, you’re approved! You can now start adding the affiliate links to your blog posts and social media posts and get promoting. Be sure to check out my post on my recommended affiliate marketing resources for beginners, which will teach you how to achieve higher conversion rates.
If you aren’t approved, take note of the reasons why you were rejected. They will usually outline these in an email. Sometimes you need to create more content or need more traffic. You can always try again at a later time.
