I have recently been experimenting with monetizing my craft blog and wanted to share with you some of the programs I have found so far that work for me other than adsense.
Speaking of wish about adsense. Oh! Don’t get me wrong, That I don’t dislike them or anything. I love adsens, however, my blog which focuses mainly focus on crafts project especially, crochet in particular ,has very specific traffic. That’s why I start to look for some alternative way. So I am researching to an affiliate network and found a great one!
Shareasale is quickly becoming my favorite. They are one of the oldest affiliate networks around with over 2,500 merchants joining them. There are a variety of products that you can choose to promote and fit with you blog.
From my experience, a lot of the merchants offer bonuses from 5-25 $$ just for putting up an ad campaign on sidebar or writing a post about their special sale during a bonus weekend. Yes – that’s right, no sale required. I only have to let them know where the ad was placed during the bonus period.
So which one did I picked?
Craftsy! is a site and community where crafty people share craft project , learn about crafts, like sewing, knitting and much more or even chatting.
I was a fan of craftsy myself (I am sell my crochet designs there) before I even know that they have affiliate with shareasale.
What’s good about joining craftsy’s affiliate program?
– You will earn $1 commission for each person who registers on the craftsy site
– Get 30% commission for each craftsy course sale
– You get monthly newsletters and promotions, content, and codes that you can use for the benefit of your business.
