This post contains affiliate links. If you click on my link and sign up for VigLink I will make a commission.
If you have ever heard of affiliate marketing and think that it is super confusing you’re not alone. When I started blogging, I thought I would never see the day that monetizing my blog would make sense. There’s just too much to learn. But when you dive in and start actually learning, it’s not too bad at all. And most bloggers eventually look to monetize, because hey it’s just awesome to do something you love and make money doing it right?
So, there is a FREE plugin on WordPress that allows you to make your monetizing much more simple. An affiliate program is where you would sign up with say Walmart, and when you write a post recommending one of their products and someone clicks the link and purchases, you would make a profit off that sale. Instead of joining a million and a half different affiliate programs, you can join one called VigLink. VigLink has connections with thousands of popular companies including Toy’s R US, Etsy, and Ebay.
How does VigLink work?
- Sign up for a free account at VigLink.com
- Install the FREE plugin on your WordPress blog.
- Start linking to products around the web.
- VigLink automatically creates a monetized link as long as they’re partnered with that company.
- You make 75% and they keep 25% of any sales made on your link. You get paid from them monthly via PayPal.
Take for example, my daughter loves Shopkins…These cute little houseware/food themed little collectible figures. Seriously, they’re adorable. I want to purchase her a Season 6 Mega Pack from Walmart. I think it’s amazing that they are only $14.88 on Walmart.com so I decide to share with you this awesome deal by giving you a link for the Season 6 Mega Pack. Now if you’re to click on it and make a purchase, I will get a commission. At least we can look at it this way… Helping my readers out and then they can in turn help me too! So thank you to my awesome readers for making this happen! 🙂
