How To Earn Money With Your Blog

I wrote  a post back in July about different programs I had found to monetize my blog and wanted to give an update with what’s been working for me. I only started to monetize my site this year and have been earning more money. Mind you, there’s more costs too (like hosting, design work, giveaways that I sponsor myself, etc).

If you are curious as to what I do to monetize, here’s the programs I use and how they have worked for me:

Sponsored Tweets

I’ve made a little over $170 since starting with them. I used to get a lot more offers than I do now. Now it’s just one every few weeks or so if that. The suggested price for me is $8.16, but I lowered it to $3 to see if it would bring more offers. Maybe it goes in spurts- I really don’t know, but I will stick with it since it has been pretty good in the past for me. You need to make $50 before you can get paid (without any fees) via Paypal.

MyLikes

I’ve made about $130 with them to date. I get more offers from them and it’s usually one every couple days. I like that they pay weekly via Paypal when you are over $2.

Logical Media

I started with Logical Media this summer and they have been fairly decent. They have a large number of campaigns to choose from. I am picky with the ones I post though and don’t do everyone that they send out. I’ve earned $127 through them. Click Here if you are interested in joining their program.

My Savings Media

Promote brand name coupons and free product samples on your web site or blog. Click Here

This is my favourite program. They always have high quality offers and they do pay. I received my first cheque last week actually! I’ve earned $83 to date with them.

Escalate Media

This is another good one too that seems to really care about their affiliates. Their offers are pretty decent. I have made $63 with them.

WeUseCoupons.com

This is another good one and there’s two ways to earn money- with each click and with each referral. I have received two cheques so far from them so they are legit.  My grand total with them is $175!

Shareasale

They have a large number of affiliate programs from high quality retailers. I like that they don’t kick you out of the program like some other affiliates if you haven’t earned enough money. Crazy that some do that and I can’t be bothered with programs like that. I’ve made $24 with them. Join shareasale.com

Sponsored Reviews

Blog Advertising - Advertise on blogs with SponsoredReviews.com

This is one that pays too! I’ve earned about $50 or so with them. They pay via Paypal.

Other Newer Programs I Have Joined:

Savvy Savings & Scholarships- advertises family friendly deals cross the US.

Chango- Earn money on your search engine traffic (and not your regular readers).

Chitika- Same thing as Chango- earn $$$ from your search engine traffic. I am still trying to decide which one to keep on my site between the two of them.

What other programs do you use? Have you tried any of these ones? How are they working for you?

    Stacie,

    Thank you for this post! I’ve seen other posts, but you have given different information w/ a lot more detail about your own experience. That is helpful! I am new to the blog world… I’ve had a blog, but didn’t use it regularly until recently (due to working 60 hrs/wk at a job that was killing me) so I had never considered monetizing prior.

    Take care!

    Thanks for the update. I read your last post & did join a few that you mentioned. The only one I really like is Sponsored Tweets… although I am not making too much. I started about 2 months ago and I have only made about $11. I got discouraged. I did have a lot of offers but it didn’t seem to bring in much money. I kinda gave up. It seemed like I was ALWAYS tweeting. Maybe I’ll start back up and raise my suggested price. I am at around $3 right now.

    Thanks for this post!

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with each company. Honest personal ancedotes, complete with monetary values, is one of the best ways to judge offers without doing them yourself.

    I would like to look into some of these. The MyLkes and Sponsored Tweets were duds for me.

    I just started this one, I’m liking it compared to others I’ve tried. Referrals is the main way to earn or surveys and reading ads. The emails are easy, click to look, click to confirm, done. You get a $5 sign on. I hope the link below comes through. If not I posted it on my blog.
