Making Money Online with Advertising and Affiliate Programs

Thursday, February 11, 2010 @ 11:25 pm by ProBlogit.com

Making money online with advertising and affiliate programs is not at all simple. It is just not easy making money online no matter what other people say on their blogs. I joined several advertising and affiliate programs for the past few years and for the past few months but I still have to see if I can really make money from them.

Making money online needs a lot of effort, discipline, patience and perseverance. It needs good planning and goal setting. It is not just enough to sit in front of your computer and write content for your blog. Content is king but no matter how many articles you have written, you will not get a lot of traffic if you are not promoting your blogs.

Even if you get a lot of traffic but if your visitors do not click on the ads, links or banners, then you will definitely not earn. But even if I have not earn from some of those advertising and affiliate programs, I did not regret joining them. I will give it a few more months and see if I have to continue having those ads, links, and banners on my blogs.

What are the Advertising and Affiliate Programs that I have joined so far?

Google AdSense

Make Money Online with Google Adsense. Google AdSense is a free advertising program that allows web publishers like bloggers and probloggers to display ads on their blogs and then earn from valid clicks and impressions on those ads.

Text Link Ads

Make Money Online with Text Link Ads. Text Link Ads is a kind of text based ads widely known as Site-wide Ads or Site-wide Links. It is not a pay per click advertising program so if you join this advertising program, you will earn immediately the moment an advertiser purchases a link from your site.

So far, those are the affiliate and advertising programs that I have joined and explored. I will be exploring more affiliate and advertising programs in the next few months. There are still a lot out there that I have not tested yet. I might even try writing sponsored posts just to see how it works. I have to find out if it is really worth it writing sponsored posts.

If you plan to become an affiliate, make a plan and set your goals. Have a lot of patience, discipline, patience and perseverance. It is not going to make you rich overnight but it will pay off later on if you work for it. Work smartly to achieve your goals.
