Great Affiliate Program for Web Designers

If you are a web designer and you have a blog, or several blogs like I do.  Then it might be a good idea to start selling related products and services via affiliate marketing.  If your blog is focused on the web design, you can make quite a lot of money if you choose the right affiliates to work with.

I am an affiliate of WP Engine, and they pay a very generous referral fee for sales.  I won’t go into too much details here, as you can read about it on their website if you click the banner below.  But, they offer $200 per sale, which is way more than most others and they have great, reliable services also, so I don’t have to worry about my clients when I refer them.

Furthermore, they even pay you when you get someone else signing up on your site as a referrer, I think it’s $50 for each one.  But check out the details on their site.

Earn up to $7500 for one sale!

If you know of any that are better, please state which ones and why and I’ll consider adding them.

Add a Privacy Policy To Your AdSense-Enabled Website To Earn More Cash

Add a Privacy Policy To Your AdSense-Enabled Website To Earn More Cash

When I’m laying in bed at night, I often search for blogging tips, ways to make money, and things of that nature using my phone. Every once in a while I will come across a tip that I include in my blogs, but never like the one I found tonight…

Add a Privacy Policy To Your AdSense-Enabled Website To Earn More Cash

I was browsing the Internet as usual, making Google searches about how to make more money with Google AdSense and I came across a post on Christian PF about how to make money on a blog. In the post, Bob talks about the importance of a privacy policy for AdSense publishers, which is something that I have never heard of before (and I have been using AdSense for over two years). Basically, if you provide your website readers with a privacy policy (it doesn’t even have to be fancy), Google will be happy with you. If not, they will trim your earnings and give you pennies when you should be getting dollars.

I immediately got out of bed, grabbed my computer, and started adding privacy policies to all of my AdSense-enabled websites. I found a free online tool on Serp Rank to be very helpful in creating the privacy policies. All you have to do is insert your website URL into one box and your email address into another and the program writes your policy for you. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t use a privacy policy of this quality for legal purposes, but if you’re just trying to earn more money through AdSense, it’ll do just fine.

It’s now 2:10 AM, but my websites now have privacy policies so I will have to wait and see how it affects my earnings.

How To Make Money By Selling Linux On eBay

How To Make Money By Selling Linux On eBay

Make Money By Selling Linux On eBay

As anyone familiar with Linux knows, it is free to download and free to use on as many computers as you want. The problem with Linux though, is that it requires some geek knowledge to take the .iso image and put it on a bootable disk or flash drive. Sure, I have written a guide on how to replace Windows with Linux, but the guide may be complex for many users that simply want the easy way out… Well, the easy way out is never free, and that’s where us geeks come in.

Because Linux is free to download, that means you can download and distribute as many copies as you want. I have seen vendors selling flash drives loaded with Ubuntu for about $13 each. If you can find a cheap flash drive on eBay or Amazon for $2-4 that can house a Linux install, everything after the initial flash drive cost is profit. All you have to do is follow the instructions to make a bootable flash drive, load the Ubuntu .iso image, and start selling. If you wanted to, you could create 10 flash drives in just a short amount of time. At $3 a piece, the bill for all of the flash drives would be around $30. If you sell each flash drive with a Linux install for $13, then you are making $10 on each one… Sell all 10 and that’s $100 in your pocket for simply loading Linux onto a bootable drive.

I have seen some vendors selling Linux CDs and DVDs on eBay, but the flash drives seem to be the more popular method. And like selling anything on eBay, I’m sure this business takes time and persistence. If you add in the fees that it costs to list items on eBay and then collect your payment with PayPal, you would probably make about $85 from the entire deal… Still, that’s good money for setting up a couple of flash drives.
