Hello from rainy Tokyo, Japan. I’m am literally hours away from watching my first son being born and am feeling an intense mix of awe, excitement and utter fear While, I’ll be busy for the next few days (well, OK years), I wanted to let you all in on an Affiliate Marketing opportunity you might want to consider. If you don’t know what affiliate marketing is, basically it’s when you get paid for recommending a product that is eventually bought. It is one of my monetization strategies here as well as on Todd’s Wanderings and last month I earned around $500.
Adam Baker from Man vs Debt has created an amazing concept called the 72 Hour Sale where he and a partner gather together 22 online ebooks and courses around a certain theme. This is the second time they have done it, and the last one about Internet Business and Blogging had over 2,000 buyers in just 3 days. The concept is simple, for 72 hours you can buy 22 Personal Development Courses and Ebooks for only $97 that would normally cost $1,087 if you bought them separately.
What does this have to do with you? Last time, I bought the package and became an affiliate. I ended up earning my money back and $100 on top of it. Not to mention getting access to all the online products I had been drooling over for the past year for a ridiculously cheap price.
This time (the last 72 hour sale was 7 months ago) is all about Personal Development. As many of our travel blogging readers are also looking to improve their lifestyles, this might be a good fit to promote on your sites. Besides being a great deal for anyone interested in the subject, you also have the opportunity to earn a 50% commission on all sales, will stay an affiliate for the next time the sale comes around, and you will get to see what type of products sell well on the internet. This last point was great for me in the Online Business and Blogging theme and has given me a ton of ideas for my own products and where I might fit in the market. Now I get 23 more chances for research at a cheap price as well (yes, I already bought mine).
If you are interested check out the 22 Personal Development Package. If you want to become an affiliate you do need to buy it first and then you will have access. Since this is the case you should either: be happy to read the material or believe you can earn commissions on it from your readership due to their interests…or hopefully a combination of the two!
And of course if you decide to buy it through the links here on TBC then I also get a commission and I will be able to buy a round of beers once my son is born. If not, that’s cool too. I just wanted to let you know some of the ways I earn money from my websites to help you out. And yes, I do realize that some of us might have the same readers, and you might “steal” a few customers. That’s cool, the internet is a big place and I want everyone here on the TBC to do well and earn money from their travel and lifestyle websites
