Blogging is one of the best ways to make money in this digital era. We are aware that to some, blogging is a way to document their life experiences and share it with the wider world while to the others, it is another money making avenue.
Now let’s get back to the reason why this post was birthed. I know you might be wondering what an affiliate marketing means but just read on because I will explain all about it in a bit.
Affiliate makerting is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals. Sounds easy right?
Today, we will focus on making money through affiliate marketing. Most people still underrate affiliate marketing but I’m here to tell you that it works.
In this post, I will teach you how to monetise your blog by choosing these 3 affiliate sites (please note that this is not the only way bloggers earn money but for today, we will focus on affiliate marketing).
1. KONGA AFFILIATES
Konga is one of the largest online malls in Nigeria. By joining Konga affiliates, you stand the chance of earning from 1 to 6% of every purchase made through your blog. The good thing about konga affiliates is, that once you apply and get approved, you get 500 Naira commission instantly (but it won’t be paid immediately).
Konga makes use of banners and rotators and you choose where to place the advert (depending on your wordpress theme for bloggers who hosted their blog on WordPress.com). You will also need to update them with your account number. Then sit patiently and await your money. They use both cookies and IP address to track referrals
