Unless you're a blogger who have been living under a rock, you'd know about how affiliate programs can increase the power of your blog. Though I must admit that I have joined a couple of promising networks that I thought could give me some moolah to help keep my blog up and running, most of them did not quite work for me, in the sense that keeping up with their updates is hard enough for me.
Now that I have amassed quite a list of popular posts and my readers are getting acquainted with my activities, all that's left me throughout these years are bills for my annual domain fee, additional Google back up files, and other website applications that I needed to pay. I'm glad that I was able to find ways in managing the needs of my website. I'm not too O.C. when it comes to having a great blog, however I do owe my followers and readers, so in return I just have to go on and continue discovering great places of interests and more unique epicure finds to please them, and of course including me, after all, this blog is a major advocate for my sanity.
Thanks to affiliate programs, this proven method of increasing web site sales and profits, have given me enough funds to not only sustain this blog but also gave me more freedom in buying online not only with the stuff I need to beautify my blog more so get stuff to enhance my lifestyle as well.
Simply put, affiliate programs, also called associate programs, are bloggers modern BFF's (best friend forever). These are arrangements in which an online merchant website pays affiliate websites a commission to send them traffic. These affiliate websites provides links leading to the merchant's site and are paid according to some agreements. Agreements are usually based on the number of people the affiliate sends to the merchant's site, or the number of people they send who buy something or perform some other action.
Over the past few years, affiliate programs have tremendously grown in popularity, in forms that are many to describe. If you have a website that don't deal much in e-commerce (marketing products or services online) themselves, functioning as an affiliate is a good way to participate in e-commerce.
To put into perspective what rendering in affiliate programs means to me, let me give you some of the benefits that have kept me from getting my blog off the online space.
One is that, I don't even need to sell anything on this site to benefit from having affiliates. Do you know that a lot of content-based blogs get most of their money from advertisers, which are attracted by high traffic numbers? Because of this, traffic translates directly into profit for these sites. Pay-per-click affiliate programs are an excellent way to increase traffic.
However, if you run an e-commerce site and would like to increase your sales, you might want to start your own affiliate program or if you are a member of an affiliate program like ALFAcashier and have generated a total of 1200 dollars in affiliate earnings, you may opt to level up by joining VIP level, specially for those who are most active affiliates who own popular blogs, forums and websites.
You can register to most of the e-commerce affiliate programs for fee, including VIP level of ALFAcashier.
What's more is that The VIP level offers affiliates as much as 20% of all future referred currency conversions. The VIP status is granted for a lifetime and is non-revocable. ALFAcashier offers users a complete set of banners of different formats that can be easily inserted into any webpage or a personal signature block of a user’s forum posts. Obtaining the VIP status in the ALFAcashier affiliate program enables users to generate stable passive income by referring new users to the system. Payouts can be made to the user’s PerfectMoney purse when the accumulated amount of affiliate commissions reaches $100.
This is an excellent way both to serve your visitors and to make money off your Web site's traffic. don't you think?
