As you begin to read this, you may be thinking I’m suggesting you write for affiliate marketers. Well, you certainly can, although I know many product/service owners expect a lot of writing while paying the writer very little money. I can’t advocate that.
What I’m actually suggesting in this post is that writers consider looking into affiliate marketing as another way to add to their income. Given that writing clients can come and go at will, the passive income earned through affiliate marketing is a natural fit to keep money coming in. Another plus is that with your writing talents, you can modify any text the product or service owner might provide. If the provided copy isn’t up to your standards, or you can see better ways to write it, then you’re free to rewrite it.
I’m still learning about affiliate marketing myself, so I thought I’d share a couple of posts from Melanie Kissell, the Solo Mompreneur. She’ll be guest posting later this month. She’s written two posts for a multi-post series on her blog appropriately named Solo Mompreneur. I’ve noted the first two here – you can join her list or her RSS feed to read future posts in this series.
Do you participate in affiliate marketing now?
Did you, but stopped?
