It was around year ago now at the start of 2018 that I decided to really invest in my blog. I had been blogging for a good year before then; I was getting an ok amount of views per month, I was consistently creating content & was gradually starting to grow my audience.
I was becoming a brand.. a name that people recognised.
Investing in my blog
Spring 2018 saw me take my first ever course in blogging… I wasn’t sure if I really needed it or if I knew everything that I was going to be told and it was just going to be a waste of moneybut I felt I needed a push.
I felt I needed someone to tell me what I was doing was right and guide me through the next stage of blogging; the making money bit!
That go-to person was to be the queen of affiliate marking, making 30% of her £100k turnover in 2018 from exactly that.. Emma Drew.
Best affiliate marketing course
*How to Smash Affiliate Marketing as a UK Blogger, was the best course I could’ve taken at the start of my journey to making money from my blog.
It gave everything I needed to know to give affiliate marketing a good crack lets say!
I didn’t want it to take over my life, I didn’t want to deviate from the content I was regularly producing just because I wanted to get a link in in the hope someone would buy something but it gave me insight to a way to make money from my blog.
It wasn’t that expensive I thought either given the fact you are being taught by a fellow blogger who makes an income from doing exactly this.
An affiliate marketing training video
The course is presented in video format which I loved… it find it easier to take in something when I feel like someones directly speaking to me.
Although I’m not as hot on affiliate marketing as I can be (mainly because I just forget to link things!) that course taught me exactly what I need to do and how I need to do it to get on the ladder of making some money from my blog.
The course shares Emma own affiliate marketing secrets with you, including:
- How she choose which products and services to affiliate to.
- The secret to her success with affiliate marketing.
- The companies she has affiliate marketing success with…
- What she doesn’t have affiliate marketing success with too!
- & how she utilises social media to increase her affiliate income.
Best place to learn affiliate marketing
A year on.. and at just short of 10k views per month, that course is still the go-to course I recommend to people starting out with affiliate marketing and will continue to be until I too am earning five figures sums from affiliate income (we can all dream right!?)
Hope that helps!
