Depending on how topic-specific your blog is it may be hard to fit in posts for them. At Simply CVS I post
exclusively about saving money while shopping at CVS, so to fit these in I created an Off-Topic Saturday Series where I could share other money saving or money making opportunities with my readers. Here are a few of my posts:
- Earn Prizes or Amazon Gift Cards While you Search the Web with Swagbucks
- Earning Money Online, First in a Series
- Earning Money Online, Second in a Series
Some of the possibilities of referral advertising opportunities include:
You can add a list of links to your sidebars under a title describing them, such as "Make Money Online;" and of course if they offer a banner you can include it in a sidebar either alone or in a scrolling button box or a table of button banners. You can also add them to the bottom of random posts you put up as advertisements--they often offer a variety of sizes so it gives you many options.
So when think of monetizing your blog, think not only of those opportunities that will net you a pay check but include those that will increase your earnings outside of your blog thru program referral bonuses.
