In this post, I promised I was going to reveal a strong secret to make money with your blog. As a matter of fact, this post is part of the revelation.

Before we get to the meat of this post, let me remind you that this is part 12 in the series of creating a blog that makes money. If you missed the previews 11 parts, you can find theme on the front page
Let’s get straight to the point …
1 – Tutorials
If you want to write blog posts that make money almost on auto pilot, you must consider creating tutorials for essential products in your niche. If you study Pat’s and Matt’s income reports, you’ll find out that these guys (and others not listed here) make a lot of money from tutorial posts. There is absolutely no magic about it. Just do a detailed tutorial of a paid product that’s much needed in your niche. Use screen captures, videos, graphs and link to the product page through your affiliate link.
Tutorial posts will in a more sure way add more to what your blog can generate as income. Tweak your post, optimize and make it search engine friendly. They more traffic you get from search engines, the more the conversion and the more money you make.
2 – Products reviews
Reviewing products (linking to them through your affiliate link) is another way to create blog posts that generate short and long term earnings. For better CTR and CR, you should review products you have used, showing your readers how effective they are and how practically you use them to get results.
Don’t just write short reviews for the sake of commissions. Do in-dept reviews that create a need where there is non. What makes people buy the product is when they see a need for it. If you don’t succeed to projecting the need and showing how the product brings a solution, you fail in making the much required sale.
3 – Interview Authors
Interviewing an author of a hot product is another excellent way to generate income. Such interviews are wonderful content types that make money. However many bloggers are yet to discover this. In the interview, get the author to sell the product. Ask questions that will push him/her to reveal high points of his product. Make the interview a sales conversation. Shift a bit from the traditional questions and make yours more unique.
Most product creators will be willing to have that interview on targeted blogs because this will help to boost sales.
– > To make this point even sweeter
Of course you know you will have to be an affiliate of the product promoted in the interview. Link therefore to it through your affiliate link.
You can even make more sales by asking for a unique coupon code for your readers. This is a powerful strategy. Ask your interviewee to generate this code that’s only available on your blog. For the most part, you will get a 10% or 25% discount. This makes the sales hot.
4 – Create coupon code Posts
People don’t just buy online these days without searching for coupon or discount codes. It’s a pretty nice way to save money buying online. one thing is that coupon code pages get shared so often making it more popular and generating more income.
You may want to create coupon codes for specific services (Web Hosting coupon codes) or specific products or companies (Hostgator Coupon codes, Godaddy .com domain discount code), etc. While visitors benefit by saving on their purchases, you are making your commissions.
I have a Godaddy coupon code post. I didn’t realize this post is at work until I had the following payment in Paypal just yesterday. This makes me want to tweak the post to get more traffic from SEO
