This post contains affiliate links that help us & hopefully help you, too!! 🙂
There are new ways to make money blogging popping up every day and I wanted to share three of them them with you today.
Well they are all new to me- I’ve known about #3 for a while, but I”m finally putting it into play on my blog.
They have finally made the “switch”. We had been hearing about it for MONTHS, but it has arrived! Are you signed up? You “bid” on jobs that you want. You look through, find what you want and make a bid. (Similar to Sverve). You can bid on sponsored tweets, posts or other social media updates.
I was so confused because you only get three bids, so I e-mailed them and they told me that I can upgrade (so can you) to have unlimited bids for $1 a month, but to do this you have to put a credit card on file or use the money that you have made through them. They have their payout after 6 weeks, so you might need to put a card on file to do this sooner (instead of waiting the 6 weeks to use your balance). Find out more here.
I literally JUST signed up for this one, but it looks great. You can find jobs that you like, similar to Izea. They even have coupons & deals that you can share and you make money every time someone prints the coupon or uses the deal or code. I suggest you click “take the tour” when you join to find out all of the perks! Find out more here.
3- Affiliates of other places.
So, what I have started doing lately is finding popular companies and sharing about them! Here are my favorite ones (click on the links to be taken to the sign-up form for affiliates)
A few examples:
I love Jane.com and so do my readers. I know this because I shared a few things that I liked on there and found that my interaction (via Facebook) was high. So- I joined share a sale and became an affiliate of Jane.com. Now I try to share at least one thing a week from there- something that I LOVE! I don’t make a ton of money, but it is easy money. Last month I made around $100 and I only posted 4 times, I think, on Facebook. Easy money & sharing something that I would share either way!
Another example is GroopDealz. Similar to Jane. Its awesome.
Another example is ABCmouse.com. I post about Kindergarten a lot on my website, so adding a few great teaching tools in there is a no-brainer! I joined CommissionJunction and I just tell my readers about the free month on ABCmouse.com (free trial) and they jump on board. I know that they will love it because I love it (I actually have a year membership to it because our kids are crazy for it!)
Bloggers- help other bloggers by sharing things that you love. Paula and I used Bluehost as our host for a very long time. When you tell OTHER bloggers about it, you make $65 for the referral! I started telling other blogging friends that if they joined, they could use our referral link and we would split the cost of the referral fee that I would make. So- instead of them paying their fee and neither of us getting anything, I would make $32.50 and they would make $32.50. It really was a win-win!
I hope that was helpful! If you are looking for more ways to make money- I have a huge list right here.
