One of the first things you can do is affiliate marketing.
Although you need to drive traffic to your website, blog, or “mini-site”, getting set up with a Digital Products Retailer can be very important for monetizing your blog.
For instance, Clickbank is a huge marketplace of e-products. You can take products and sell them to others, and you will make a hefty commission, usually at or over 50%, for each sale.
If you go to Clickbank.com you will find it remarkably easy to establish an account.
The most difficult part will be choosing a name that may not already be taken.
Keep in mind that later on you may use that name when you sell a product, so don’t make it too funky. Something marketing related like myproducts would be good.
Now head on over to the Clickbank “marketplace” and you will see that it is divided into various niches. You will be able to create a “hoplink” for each one of those products, that would lead to paying YOU the commission if you sell that product.
Another Affiliate Network is JVZoo. JVZoo is perhaps the most talked-about affiliate network among Internet marketers today.
There’s a very good reason to love them: they pay your affiliate commissions instantly to your PayPal account.
