Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing

Blog By Number
This course is without a doubt one of the best courses I have run across. Suzi has an incredible way of breaking down the process of building a blog into small achievable pieces. She helps you feel less overwhelmed and instead feel excited.
Blog and Be Legal
Did you know there was legal matters involved in blogging? Did you know that if you don’t take proper legal actions you could be endangering your blog? Neither did I. This course will walk you through everything you need to know about making sure your blog is legal in every way.
Divi by Elegant Themes
Getting Divi is the best thing I have ever done for my websites!! I was looking for a great theme for my new websites and I happened to find the greatest theme ever.
My favorite features are:
- drag and drop capabilities
- no knowledge of code required
- the visual builder (this one feature has changed my life)
- A/B & split test pages
- using Divi’s premade layouts
- wide variety of modules
- save your own layouts to use later
- using global modules
One of my favorite words in blogging “automation”. Tailwind is one of my favorite automation tools!!! It allows you to schedule on Pinterest. Being able to schedule pins has seriously upped my Pinterest strategy game. in the first 2 months of using Tailwind, my number of repins and followers more than doubled. It’s a life saver for any blogger. ***A new feature allows you to also schedule on Facebook and Instagram***
In the beginning of my blogging journey I thought using a free email service would always be the way to go…I quickly changed my mind. With CovertKit you can tag subscribers so they are only getting the emails they want instead of everything!!! This is a huge benefit and the number one reason I chose them. As a bonus, their system is super user friendly, setting up automations is a breeze, and creating forms & landing pages is a cinch.
I have worked with a couple of other hosting companies and the only one I truly like is Bluehost. They are affordable, extremely user friendly, very helpful (I personally love their live chat feature).
I am a BIG believer in giving children easy access to books. After 6 years of only buying my niece books at Christmas and on her birthday I signed her up for Bookroo. Upon signing her up she started receiving 2 books individually wrapped in the mail every month. She loves it!!! She says (and I quote) “Getting books in the mail is the best!!” I strongly recommend this for any child.
Check Out The Literary Goodness
Get paid to shop. Yeah I know, I thought it was a scam too but…it’s not!! You actually do get paid to shop at stores affiliated with Ebates (PSST Amazon is one of them). All you have to do is download their browser add-on and then when you go to an online store you will see a popup telling you to activate your cash back rebate. That’s it, it’s that simple!! I’ve only been using Ebates for about 6 month and so far I’ve made $91.05.
