How to start making money on your new blog using affiliates
There are many ways of making money off your blogs and websites. One way is to display advertisements from affiliates on you website or blog. Commercial websites have specialised software running; serving impressions of advertisements paid for by clients and brands.
For the rest of us, the casual blogger or beginner influential, we need a different option to serve advertising on our blogs since commercial software tends to be complicated and expensive.
One way of getting some advertising on your website is making the use of free affiliates (in-between companies that link the website owners and people that want to advertise something). Two of the most known affiliates that we recommend to start you off are Google AdSense and Amazon Associates; but there are many more on the internet.
This is the first one we signed up for on our blog. Google AdSense is a advertisement serving service by Google. All you need to do is have your blog running with a little bit of content (if you have nothing they will reject your application to join) and you will need to fill out an application form. Once you get approval (in a few days time), go to My Ads and create a few advertisements for your website. Once you have created the advertisements; put the codes for them on your website (in WordPress you can put them in text widgets or in the theme advertisement zones).
As users come to your website, the advertisements are displayed (impressions – one full load of the advertisement viewed by a user on a browser for that session) and users can also click on the advertisement for which you earn a return. You will notice that the advertisement impressions are paid per thousand views (lower rate) and the click on advertisement is where you earn most (higher rate).

With in AdSense remember to link your YouTube (see how to monetise your YouTube video here).
Amazon allows you to join and promote products from their website via their Affiliates program. All you need to do is sign up by filling out an application form; and once approved you can start promoting products for your website. Every product is tracked and once somebody buys a products which you promoted on your website you get a fee paid to you. Easy.
