It’s time for me to set aside the spatula and turn the focus inward to talk about blogging! This time ’round, I’m talking about one of my favorite income sources—the Amazon affiliate program. Since January 1st of this year, I have sold $35,594.13 worth of items through my Amazon affiliate account. Now, only a small percentage of this total goes in my pocket, but still, a small percentage of $35,000 isn’t so small!
Having a strong strategy for Amazon affiliates is one of the most important parts of my blog’s monetization plan. Amazon is a wonderful affiliate program to be part of because almost everyone orders from Amazon! In our house, we have packages coming from Amazon multiple times per week. Amazon is well-trusted, priced right, and your readers are, without a doubt, already shopping there. So you might as well make a little kickback when they do!
