      In my knowledge, many blogger don’t try other ways to make money and they mostly depent Google Adsenses. However, some blogger earn money without using Google Adsense

  7. To be successful in affiliate marketing, one has to take efforts. The products should be chosen correctly and should also be promoted through appropriate channels. However, once you begun, it will be advantageous.

    1. Hi Rajaraman,

      You are correct, making money by affiliate marketing is not easy as says but once you start making money you will earn monthly a decent amount.

      Most blogger never tries to achieve next level because hardwork and patience without these it is impossible to earn money from blogging

  8. Hi Vineet,

    People always do the mistake while being an affiliate of any company.
    they never check that the product the are going to sell is appropriate for their readers or not?

    As you have said that niche should be chosen. The product should be related to the niche of your blog so that your reader will live to buy it from you.

    If you are going to enter in this field then come with your mind and set it to do work hard.
    Promotion of the product is really important.

    You should use social media for the promotion.

    Great post indeed.:)


    1. Hi Ravi Chahar ,

      Yes, choosing right product for your blog reader is an important factor as well as we should be careful when choosing product sometimes, you may be cheat.

      Many blogger provide inappropriate affilate product to their visitor because of high commission but never think about money think about right product

      1. Hi Krishnan,

        Affiliate marketing is all about making money but bloggers who only think about money instead of their reputation then it’s not a good approach towards their work.

        I want to tell you that bloggers shouldn’t start their affiliate marketing in the starting of their blog because it would let them become greedy.

        They should wait for the proper time.
