Y'all.  I WROTE A BOOK.  Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!  How crazy is that?  I can hardly believe it myself, but I did it.  Affiliate Marketing for Bloggeris done, and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

If you are usually here for DIY and home decor goodness, you can check out my recent dining room makeover reveal or the details on the metal prints that I used in my dining room gallery wall.  And of course, check back later this week for more DIY projects–I have some FABULOUS tutorials coming up :)  But today's post is for all the bloggers out there who want to learn how to earn more money doing what they love.  If you fall into that category, read on!

Soooooo, let's take a little trip down memory lane, shall we?  I launched my blog on October 28, 2013…about 20 months ago.  It all started with my check out my recent dining room makeover reveal.  I was so excited to have a dedicated laundry room with a window that I decided to tackle a makeover to make it pretty, but had almost no money to spend on the project.  So I decided to get creative. Somewhere along the way, I thought, “hey, my friends and family may want to see what we are doing in this house” and so I decided to start a blog.  I read several DIY and home blogs, so I had a general idea of what to do.  I set up a free blog through Blogger and started posting whenever I had something to write about.

My $71 laundry room makeover was my first blog project AND the subject of my first blog post!

Soon thereafter I discovered link parties and joined in the fun.  And my little blog posts started getting some attention.  I couldn't believe it!  TRULY.  In any event, I was quickly hooked on blogging.  I mean, I was completing the DIY projects anyway, why not combine that with my love of photography and writing?!  I started spending more and more time on my blog and at the end of December, 2013, I decided to get more serious about it and I migrated from Blogger to WordPress {you can read all about how and why here}.

With the switch to WordPress came the expenses.  They weren't huge, but I was losing money every month on my blog.  Then I heard about how to monetize my blog and thought I should give it a shot so that I could at least cover my expenses.  I quickly learned about sponsored posts and placing ads on my blog, but affiliate marketing eluded me.  I understood what it was, but I just could not find a comprehensive resource to explain how to effectively use affiliate marketing on my blog and through social media.

spent the next 12 months figuring it out on my own and now I earn at least $1,500.00 from affiliate sales every month.  One month I earned $5,300.00.  When I learned that other successful bloggers were making $50 to $100 per month from affiliate sales, I was SHOCKED and frustrated!  These are talented bloggers and they should be earning more through affiliate sales.  So, I decided to write a book explaining everything I have learned about affiliate marketing and all the strategies I use.  That is how Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers was born!

This book was a labor of love, y'all!  I cannot ever recall working so hard in my life, which is saying something because I have taken 2 bar exams and am a trial attorney.  But you know what?  I loved every single minute of it because I know that my book is going to help other bloggers increase their affiliate sales so that they can keep pursuing this crazy, wonderful passion for blogging!

If you want to learn more, head over to my landing page where you can see the full table of contents, the details of the basic and advanced packages.  You can even watch a video of me telling you more about why I wrote the book.  Most importantly, see what other bloggers who have had a chance to preview my eBook have to say about it.  Don't wait!  You could be losing out on an affiliate sale RIGHT NOW!

But that's not all . . .  If you order the advanced package before Labor Day, you can use the code LAUNCHDEAL to get $10 off the advanced package.

Trust me, you want the advanced package if you are serious about increasing your affiliate sales!  The advanced package includes the 125 page eBook, 6 bonus spreadsheets and checklists, 8 video tutorials (totaling over 2 hours) AND access to my exclusive Facebook group dedicated to affiliate marketing strategies and questions for only $30.  That's an amazing deal and I hope you will take advantage of it!
