If you design a wildly popular app (which is harder than it sounds), you might be pleasantly surprised with the income they generate. Offering one or more apps at the iTunes or Android app store gives your creations wide exposure to prospects, and income can be generated by charging for the app, displaying in-app ads, or charging for in-app features and upgrades.
Having said that, don’t be discouraged. My recommendation is to try all kinds and see which works best for you. All blogs are different and all bloggers have different levels of success when it comes to the types of ads they use.
And yes, if you do commit to something like blogging, or writing and freelancing, you can and will make a living (you could even make way more than you could ever at your day job. That said, no matter how much time and effort you put into things like surveys, paid to click sites and things like that, they are not gonna replace your day job. They are just an attitudinal income generation options that you can use in your free time.
I recently started a blog (I became an Amazon affiliate) and I just launched (a few days ago actually) my own online store. I’m familiar with blogs, ebay, etsy, etc. I have searched and searched online for information on affiliates, blogs, etc. You are a lifesaver because your blog seriously is the easiest way to understand PLUS you even GIVE us some affiliates. I’m tring LiveMocha now and I already now what I’m going to write about in my next blog (Hello Espanol). Anyway, looking forward to getting your emails for sure. Oh…question for ya…how can I add an etsy link to my blog? Not sure if it’s just a banner or an affiliate banner somehow…? I’ve seen people who make things on etsy-they have a link/banner on their site? My MAIN goal is to somehow link all my stuff together…my store…my blog…my facebooks (heck I got educated and opened an twitter account but thats slow going b/c I’m so new)…etc. PLUS advertising is so darn exspensive espec. when you are just starting out… Thanks 🙂 Cheers! Happy bloggn!

Affiliate marketing is also called “performance marketing”, in reference to how sales employees are typically being compensated. Such employees are typically paid a commission for each sale they close, and sometimes are paid performance incentives for exceeding objectives. Affiliates are not employed by the advertiser whose products or services they promote, but the compensation models applied to affiliate marketing are very similar to the ones used for people in the advertisers’ internal sales department.
There’s some interesting results there but it was the last category (of bloggers not knowing what affiliate marketing is) that I wanted to write this post for with the hope of answering the question. It’s pretty basic and quite beginner focused but for the 14% of you who don’t know what affiliate marketing is – here’s a brief introduction.

I found this site while looking for places to advertise my own affiliate program. I have the web site and commission engine in place. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best sites to advertise it?
It is not a waste of time to write meaningful, helpful posts that don’t contain a single affiliate link. Too often bloggers ask, “how could this post earn me money?” and not, “how can I position my blog as one that is a valuable resource?” Build the trust with your readership through solid, quality content so when you do have the right opportunity to share an affiliate link or two – you’ll have a captured audience and not a desensitized one.

There is this misconception about “making money online” where people think because it’s online, it’s easy and quick. Unfortunately, there are a lot of opportunistic bloggers and so called marketers out there who make it even worse by selling people all kinds of get rich quick “courses” and eBooks that are nothing but hyped up crap.
The terms of an affiliate marketing program are set by the company wanting to advertise. Early on, companies were largely paying cost per click (traffic) or cost mile (impressions) on banner advertisements. As the technology evolved, the focus turned to commissions on actual sales or qualified leads. The early affiliate marketing programs were vulnerable to fraud because clicks could be generated by software, as could impressions.
