You’re new to the world of blogging and ads aren’t really working for you.
You make some small change but maybe you’d like to increase your revenue a bit. No shame in that!
Back in the day, when my travel blog was born, I relied solely on ads. For a while, it worked. But I wanted to explore other options on how I can increase my revenue.
And that’s when I found affiliate marketing!
Affiliate marketing is a form of marketing where bloggers/creators/influencers, display products or services of another company on their blog. When a reader purchases a product or service from that company the blogger is advertising, the blogger makes a commission!
The amount of money you make depends on the amount of traffic and clicks you get on your blog.
One dilemma you might be facing when it comes to affiliate marketing is ..
‘I’m a small blogger. They will not accept me because I don’t have thousands of visitors on my blog yet!”

There are some affiliate programs that having thousands of visitors a month is a requirement. Like Canva
However, luckily, there are programs that accept small bloggers like you and me!
Before delving into the list, I thought I’d give you my top three tips I learned when it comes to affiliate marketing throughout my blogging journey ✨
- I always recommend using a program that you actually used before or that you like.
Over on Yours Truly Rebecca, I signed up to be an affiliate with Get Your Guide and Booking.com. I use both of them for all my travels and I want to recommend a service to my readers that I actually like. On both YTR and this blog, I use SiteGround’s referral program. Why? Because I use SiteGround, I love it and I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat!
- Audience > Affiliate. What do I mean by that? What I mean is, let’s say you signed up for a couple of programs and got accepted. Don’t start adding links and widgets all over your blog or after every paragraph in your blog posts.
- Be honest about how much traffic you get. Usually, before being accepted as an affiliate, you will have to fill out a survey where you give info about your blog. This includes the amount of traffic you get to your blog every month. Be honest. Companies will do a background check on your blog and they’ll find out if you’re saying the truth or not.
And now for the moment of truth .. the list of affiliate programs I promised you!
