I’ve been blogging for a little over three years now. I wish I could say that I’m making thousands a month from blogging. The sad reality is, I’m not! Not yet. Since the Google Adsense program is no longer an option for my blog (long story), I needed to look into a new way to monetize my blog. In comes affiliate programs. Today I’m sharing some tips for choosing the right one for you.
Affiliate Programs: Tips For Choosing The Right One For You

Join Programs You Are Comfortable Promoting On Your Site
There are lots of programs you can choose. The key is to find programs that you love and can promote on your site without it coming off as “forced.” Share A Sale is a great place to find some amazing programs.
Be Selective Of The Programs You Join
Remember my confession about suffering from shiny object syndrome? It might look like a splendid idea to join 101 merchants, but trust me. It’s not! You’ll end up being overwhelmed and unable to focus. Which means, no money! We don’t want that!
Stop Copying Everyone Else
I’m guilty of this one. Not every program you see is right for you. I sometimes get emails about joining programs, and the company doesn’t even ship to Canada. Just because a blogger is promoting a merchant, doesn’t mean that you should too.
There you have it folks, my tips for choosing the right affiliate programs for you. I hope you found them useful. Are you using affiliate programs on your site or blog? What other tips would you give to someone looking to start?
