Getting Paid to Post Guest Blogs

While there are several blogging constants, the world of the online writer is constantly evolving. As a blog owner and writer, I have had a front row seat to watch the landscape change over the years.

2008: Seeking some search engine love, bloggers bust their butts to produce a high volume of content.

2009:
Bloggers realize that if they are lucky enough to have a few dollars at their disposal, they can hire people (mostly overseas), to write content for them.

2010:
The world of guest blogging took off. Bloggers embrace “free” content and marketing pros rack up valuable backlinks.

So what’s ahead in 2011? Well, dear blogger, you know all of that talk about making money with your blog? This could be THE year. Read More

Music Bloggers – Make Money with the iTunes Affiliate Program

If you write a blog about music or the entertainment industry, then this post is for you!  Even if you just occasionally write about music, podcasts (that are available on iTunes) or simply have your iTunes playlist published in your blog’s sidebar, you can make some passive income from that content with the Apple iTunes affiliate program.

To join the iTunes affiliate program, you simply have to apply using the iTunes affiliate application, which is administered by LinkShare.  When you’re application is approved, you’re directed to log into your new account with LinkShare where you can manage your account, access your ad code, and so on.  You’ll receive a second email from iTunes within a few days notifying you whether or not your blog was accepted into the iTunes affiliate program.

The earnings potential for the iTunes affiliate program isn’t huge at just a 5% commission on qualified revenue generated from affiliate links on your blog or in your emails.  However, if you’re already talking about music or podcasts on your blog and you’re already linking to content on iTunes, why not include your affiliate ID in those links and make a bit of money from them.

Keep in mind, the iTunes affiliate program is only valid for the U.S. iTunes store, so make sure most of the visitors to your blog are likely to make their digital music purchases from the U.S. iTunes site before you take the time to apply, insert your ad code, and so on.

You can get more information on the iTunes affiliate website or on the program’s FAQ page.

Of course, if you don’t qualify for the iTunes program or would prefer not to join it but still want to earn a passive income from digital music links on your blog, you can always link to music downloads as part of the Amazon Associates affiliate program.

Blogging for Profit: 4 Successful Strategies

This is a guest post by Claudia Gonella, an active real estate blogger covering international real estate in Nicaragua, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama.

What’s the goal of business blogging? To trade your words for attention and sales. But the ‘selling’ must be done indirectly. A blog full of overly promotional posts, or a ‘catablog’’ with post after post featuring a product or service is not going to make the grade. Successful business blogs build credibility with their readers by providing them with value. Do this for long enough and you’ll cultivate such a strong relationship with your readers that when they’re ready to buy they won’t even think about contacting one of your competitors.

Here are some practical examples of how to use blogging to increase the profits in your business. Our sector is overseas property, but the insights hold true for other business categories. Five years ago we started a real estate blog and it has had a transformative effect on our business. Here are 4 changes we made, and how they added to our bottom line. Read More
