Want to Make More Money ? Do This Simple Crazy Thing Now!

If you want to make more money online, especially if you are into affiliate marketing, there is this one thing I want you to do right now (except you’ve done it already). This is certainly going to help you see more drops of earnings as from this month.

As a matter of fact, I brought up more details on this and many more result-driven methods in my ebook “Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers“. If you still haven’t gotten your copy of this ebook, you may want to grab it now to take your money making online business to the next level.

Affiliate marketing is without doubt, one of the most lucrative ways to make money blogging. The way it works, you don’t have need to own a product. You simply promote others’ and get paid.

But there are many ways to do it. I have written extensively on this blog and I’m convinced it’s never going to be exhausted.  Julian Sakanee recently shared with us 4 Ways to Promote Affiliate Products on Your Blog. This is one hot piece I recommend you check out.

Now, the method I want to share is already getting talked about around. Pro bloggers are using it and telling their readers about it. The reason is that they see results.

Lisa Irby mentioned it as a credibility boosting tactic that helps convert more affiliate sales. So you see it’s proven to work. Unfortunately, many of you reading this post ain’t just going to see any results because you will end at reading about the method. But anyone who does the exact same thing explained here will surely make more money.

Here we go…

Showcase Your Tools to make more money!make more money

Human beings will always copy what they perceive to be successful in others. If you blog with this understanding, you are soon going to discover how important it is to show your readers those tools and plugins you use to power your success.

Once they read your blog and find out you have a beautiful design, fast-loading blog, irresistible lead capture window, etc, they would start trying to know what is it that you use. This makes it a big opportunity to talk about your tools and earn from the recommendations.

Here is the point…

  • If you have premium WordPress theme that’s attractive.
  • If you have premium plugins you use to run your blog.
  • If your blog is self-hosted on a paid space (Web hosting)
  • If you are using a professional email marketing tool.
  • If you are using a drag & drop content builder.
  • If you are using premium SEO tool.
  • etc

Do the following two things if you are excited about affiliate marketing:

  1. Find out if these tools you are using have affiliate marketing programs. Sign up to them.
  2. Tell your readers about your tools and be sure to use your affiliate links.

A better way to do it

Once you’ve signed up to these affiliate programs, what I recommend (and what I think works well) is to create a tools/resource page. This is simply a page (not post) on your blog where you tell your readers more about your tools. An attractive resource page looks like this:

Check out my tools page here

Give your page more exposure!

It’s one thing to get this page up and it’s another thing to get it visited. The easiest way of course is to link to it from your sidebar or top menu.

How do you know if readers are interested in your tools page?

It’s not enough to link to your tools page. You should be able to know if your readers are actually clicking the link to view your resource page or not.

Whether the link is on your top menu or sidebar, the more exposure you give it, the more clicks you stand a chance to get. But how do you measure the click activities on your tools page link?

Simple!

Use a heatmap tool like Lucky Orange. (It allows you see everything visitors did before leaving your blog)

A heatmap tool will record mouse cursor movements and clicks on your blog. Once it’s installed, it will count clicks on links on pages, menus and sidebars. This will help you measure the performance of your button or call-to-action. This is what looks like:

You may also want to use affiliate tracking IDs on your tools page to track every sale it generates.

So that’s it…

If you want to make more money from your blog, just go ahead and follow these simple steps to create your resource page. This will surely generate more income from your blog.

  • Sheeroh says:

    Those are great tips Enstine. You make a valid point. That many times we will read a post till the very end but we won’t take any action. That is the biggest challenge people face. Taking action. I hope to take the necessary steps that you have outlined in this post!

  • Hi,
    Making money is a long run which requires one special quality which is the patience. The success metrics mentioned above are worth following.
    The interaction you’re having with your readers, matters. What are the number of shares, Advertise, subscribers etc matter.
    The attractiveness is yet an another metric to focus on. Chasing just your dream wouldn’t do. It’s important to keep the pace with a better design.

    Thanks for this wonderful post.

  • Hello Enstine,

    This article is right on the dot for all affiliate bloggers including me. I have started my affiliate marketing posts recently with a couple of TOP 10 articles.

    To look for affiliate programs for the plugins/themes that we use is an awesome idea, i had never thought about that.

    Will be back here soon.

  • Hi Enstine,

    Nice having you here again.

    I have a resource page created on my blog too. And from the data collected, the page is doing pretty well-receiving hits.

    Affiliate marketing has been my #1 source of income online so this information comes handy.

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Hey Enstine,

    People strive to make money online. I like how you managed to keep the pace by showcasing the tools you are using.

    It’s always good to let people know what’s the secret formulas of your success. Using the premium theme, plugins and sharing it with others can be lucrative.

    Enjoy your day.

      Do have a wonderful weekend

  • Raghu Rao says:

    I do have a resources page, but I guess I have not created enough exposure for it. Thanks for the advice, I am sure to start using it on my own blog.

  • Hi Enstine,
    Thanks for sharing this amazing post. I have not known these things.
    So, keep sharing.
    And have a good day.

  • Hey Enstine,

    Great way to start off after you’ve been away from the blogging world for a while.

    This is a great strategy and I have implemented a resource page already. This gives your tools exposure to your audience as well as getting more sales.

    I haven’t heard of Lucky Orange before. It will help to see what my visitors are clicking on and where exactly so I can make some adjustments.

    Thanks for the share Enstine! Have a great weekend!

    • Yeah I’m glad to be back bro and thanks for stopping over for a chat 😉
      Yes Lucky Orange is an excellent tool to record activities on your blog. Take the free trial and share about your experience on your blog.

      Do have a wonderful weekend man

  • Babanature says:

    Hello bro,
    Long time no chat 😉

    What you have mentioned is the truth and it is one way to make money as an affiliate marketer.

    Though I haven’t executed it, but it is in my To-do list and will surely add this to my blog.

    I still dey wait for Genesis theme to approve my affiliate application.

    Have a good weekend bro…

    • Haha Bab,
      How are you bro? I have been a ghost on your blog for the past couple of months especially on my mobile. Thanks for making time to interact with me here. I’m gradually coming back.

      Genesis affiliate platform is ShareAsale right? I don’t remember waiting for their approval when I started promoting them. Maybe they’ve changed though. Good luck brother.

      Have a wonderful weekend as well

  • Adeel Sami says:

    Hey, Enstine!

    You pounded it, buddy!! 🙂

    The “tools” thing is really the apt one! I see it happening on many blogs and I can really say that it is the great one to score some (you know what I meant, right? 🙂 …)

    Lucky Orange seems a good heat map tool! I did try HotJar in the past and probably SuMoMe has one inbuilt.

    I quit using heat map as you know I am not into the commercial side of the blogging (still) but have a strong plan in place to be on it very soon. 🙂

    So, great work as always! 🙂

    ~ Adee;

    • Hey Adeel,
      Good to see you here man. I’m gradually coming back to blogging in full.
      Aha! will be glad to see you on the money making side of blogging. A couple of things we will be sharing together 😉

      Hope you are set for a wonderful weekend

  • Monna Ellithorpe says:

    Hello my friend, Enstine

    It’s been a while. Good to be back reading your posts and great ideas for marketing.

    I’m slowly edging my way back to the full time online status and looking forward to implementing new strategies that you recommend.

    Have a great day.
