Ileane Smith's curator insight, December 16, 2013 12:38 AM

I’m not really big on monetization, although I do a little just to cover the costs of keeping the blog running. I use affiliate marketing with ClickBank products like SEOPressor and Facebook Timeline Slicer Pro and the rest is Google AdSense.


Most of the AdSense income is generated on my YouTube channel right now since I scaled back on using it so much on the blog. One strategy I’ve used successfully is to create YouTube video tutorials that help my audience understand how to use a product and what actual benefits they can expect.


I think this works well because most product developers concentrate on promoting their product’s benefits but often they fail to mention the pitfalls or demonstrate real-life outcomes. One last affiliate program I would like to mention is Blog Engage. I sold a couple of really big packages that made both me and Brian smile.
