Direct Sales and Affiliate Opportunities Directory ♥ Blogging As I Learn It ♥ Want to make money with your blog? Need ideas on things you can sell? Here's a directory based on the recommendations of sales people and affiliates from these places including beauty, home decor, and even pets.


What's the difference between direct sales and affiliate advertising?
There isn't much of a difference except that most affiliate advertising, you get paid to refer a person and they purchase, but with direct sales companies, they generally require you to keep an inventory and manually deliver products to your clients, but the pay-out is usually bigger. Both require you to sell something in order to make a commission. 

So in order to make money blogging, you need to have something you're selling.

Generally, if you're selling something where you make a few dollars, you need to sell a lot more of that than something if you're making a few hundred dollars per sale. As a result, Affiliate and Direct Sales usually works best on high traffic sites, but people do make a decent passive income with medium traffic. Most bloggers I know who utilize affiliate marketing have other sources of income where affiliate sales account for about 10 to 20% of that.

Some questions to ask yourself...



What is your site about?
What might your target market buy?
What do they NEED to function?
What are they already buying anyway?


Note: I am not an affiliate in most of this, so any affiliates linked to any of these accounts are people I heard about the product from, but they are not me. The places I am an affiliate, I will let you know, but I get nothing for this if you sign up for an affiliate account.

 AFFILIATE 

PRIMARY AFFILIATE PLACES

These places do affiliate marketing, and when you sign up with one, then you can apply to the companies they have on their list. From your dashboard, you can obtain links, banners, etc. They offer all types of affiliate marketing for just about every major category or niche you could possibly write about. 

AMAZON ASSOCIATES

Many bloggers love the amazon affiliate site because it allows them to earn a percentage on any product sold through Amazon, and Amazon has something for everything. When in doubt, sell books in your niche. 

VARIOUS WEBSITES


What I did was write a list of things I bought for my niche because those are things that I wanted to buy, needed to buy, and can easily recommend. Then I went to all their websites and looked at the footer and throughout for AFFILIATE or PARTNER WITH US links. Some of them are in the affiliate companies listed above (like Share A Sale), but others operated out of another company or as themselves. But I aimed for stuff I was planning to recommend anyway, like from woman to woman la mano to mano. 


INTERNET HOSTING


Internet hosting providers usually offer two types of programs to earn money: Affiliate (you provide a link, and for every sale you refer, you get paid) and ReSeller Programs (you pay extra to sell your own hosting and domains via a hosting company, ideal for graphic artists). These links are to the affiliates, but you may want to look into reseller programs.

I am affiliate with LyricalHost, and I chose them because I want to recommend the best, and that's the company I use now for my own things. What's awesome? They have better customer support and offer more free tech. While GoDaddy has an 800 number, they still require you to pay for tech support for most problems, like Wordpress issues. LyricalHost provides more free tech support for even things that are unrelated to the actual hosting, though it's all through online tickets (no 800 number). Their prices are also honest and transparency is a priority with them, like most of these sites, they claim it's only 3.99 a month to get a site (but only if you get the crappy one and pay for 3 years in advance). This site doesn't do that. And they donate to charity and plant trees so there's that. And once I signed up to be an affiliate, they have some nice resources to help you along your way, and is so far the only affiliate place I signed up with who had a good disclosure tutorial. The link provided is not an affiliate link, so it doesn't let them know I sent you and I get nothing for it. If you want to sign up for hosting through them, you can save 10% by using my affiliate discount code: BLOGGINGLEARND

The other one I recommend is WPEngine for Genesis Framework as the framework that normally runs $60 is free with them, and they also give you some free themes to work with which usually run another $60. But I'm utterly in love with Hello You Designs, and for people going Wordpress needing a drop dead gorgeous site without any coding knowledge, Hello You and Genesis is the way to go. You can obtain their affiliate place in Share A Sale.
