We talk so much about how to increase your profits, increasing your services and encouraging you to step “outside the box” to add those extra dollars so necessary in this drab economy.
Today I want to mention adding affiliates to your website or to your blog to generate income. Actually, once the affiliate “button” is added to your blog or website’s side bar, it’s just a matter of people clicking through to that affiliate site, making a purchase, and presto! A few extra bucks in your pocket.
One affiliate program that really is in line with what’s going on in this economy is one that is selling both a hand crafted deluxe padded coupon binder and the pattern so the customer can choose their own fabrics and make their own coupon binder.
The affiliate program for CouponClutch.com pays a whopping 7% of every sale to you. You have several styles of banners to choose from to put on your website when you register for the affiliate program. Once the nice looking affiliate banner is in place on your website or blog, you will have true “residual income” (do the work one time and it continually makes extra money for you). Then you can draw your customers’ attention to it by doing a post about it and they will do the click throughs to check out the coupon holders.
