  3. This is an amazing list, Kally.

    One thing bloggers who want to make money from affiliate marketing don’t understand is that by a large margin, affiliate marketing play by a different rule for them.

    Here is what I think: if your blog is not or doesn’t function like a sales funnel of some sort, you would be leaving some money on the table.

    I exposed this in one of my articles about affiliate marketing for bloggers.

    If you are a blogger, break the rules a little and stray from the usual article-link approach and try persuasive writing.

    By this, I mean that every blogger who wants to make more affiliate sales should write their articles in a way that would expose the reader’s challenges, assure them that they are not alone and subtly point them to areas in their article that contain links to those “helpful” affiliate products they promote.

    Before now, Kally, I knew nothing about VigLink.

    I guess it is time to check it out.

    This is such a great list.

    Thanks for this.

The idea of being able to promote other people’s products for commissions is awesome. No overhead, no dealing with customers, etc. Amazing. Great read! Thanks!
