Normally, I try to avoid the use of terrible puns, but in this case, I can’t resist. It’s a sad fact that most methods of monetization on the Web don’t make cents. Actually, that’s not entirely true—all they make is cents, and therein lies the problem.
If you’re going to use valuable real estate on your site to host ads or promote a product, then you need to be getting some sort of return for your sacrifice. Now, you may know that affiliate marketing is one of the most lucrative ways to make money online, but in order to really drive home the returns as an affiliate, you need to cover two key bases:
- First, make sure you’re promoting something that you genuinely like! People are equipped with remarkable crap filters, and if you’re just out to make a buck, they’re going to know it.
- Second, you need to promote a quality product. An affiliate program can offer you unbelievable payouts, but if no one buys the product, you won’t earn a dime.
So, why am I talking about all this? Starting today, the DIYthemes affiliate program is alive and kickin’, and now you have the chance to earn back those license fees you paid out when you signed up for Thesis. In fact, I think you’ll probably earn a heck of a lot more, simply because so many of you have been so genuine and enthusiastic with your responses to the theme. That type of attitude sells like crazy, and I hope you’ll consider leveraging that to build up your cash flow!
In order to get started, all you need to do is sign up for the free DIYthemes affiliate program. Hope to see you on the “affiliates” list soon!
