GoDaddy – Affiliate Program
May 21 2008

I’ve never really tried too much to monetize my blog so I’ve decided to start experimenting.  I do have BlogHer Ads on the right side of my blog and recently activated Google Adsense, but that hasn’t really brought in a lot of money yet.  I have kept BlogHer Ads because I support many of the things that BlogHer does and stands for.

I figure if Fred Wilson who blogs at A VC (he’s a venture capitalist) can make $30K a year from his blog, maybe I can make a few bucks that I can invest back into Babble Soft.  I’ve been so busy on other things that I haven’t really taken the time to figure out this whole blog monetization thing.  Now that I have a reasonable amount of subscribers, I figure I’d try my first affiliate program.  So I signed up for the GoDaddy Affiliate Program.  If you click on one of the images below, you will get some great discounts on domain names and hosting packages and I’ll get a little money to put in the company coffer!

If you are thinking about starting a business and you have some great domain name ideas, I suggest you go ahead and check to see if they are available, set up and account with GoDaddy, and possibly buy one or more just in case.  They have great introductory prices that start at $6.95 per year.  I have purchased several domain names with them and have really liked their service and prices.  I have not used their hosting but if their customer service on hosting is as good as their customer service on domain names, then it’s probably pretty good!

    Good advice! One of the best ways to monetize a site and get residual income is advertising sites that can generate you a monthly income as an affiliate. One example are hosting accounts, it also can be autoresponders, membership sites and any other service which has to be paid for monthly.

    Hi Anthony – Please give me some examples of the affiliate programs that have monthly programs. I’m not sure what you mean by autoresponders. Sounds like something interesting to pursue.

    Hi Aruni,

    In my previous comment I was talking about programs or services which carry a monthly membership.

    When you are an affiliate for one of this programs, you can earn residual income on every prospect who purchases the service through your affiliate link. That means, you close the sale once and keep earning passively for as long as your prospect stay as a customer.

    Hosting plans, autoresponders, and sales trackers are typical affiliate programs which earns you monthly passive income on every customer you send to them.

    If you are interested, drop me an e-mail and I can send you information about the services I use.

    Hi Anthony – I just sent you a note. I would be interested in learning about the successful monthly residual affiliate programs. I don’t really monetize this blog very much but if it’s something easy to do that throws some cash my way, I certainly would love to know about it! 🙂
