I started blogging way back in 1996 but seriously I have been blogging since 2009, at that time I was not really looking for ways to make money online but as time went by and I saw so many finding ways to use their blog to earn a bit of money, I too started searching for ways to earn money, real money. I have to tell you, I have tired many affiliate programs and have finally found one “Share a Sale”. As you can see I just received a check in the mail, that I can take to the bank.
Share a Sale is a 14 year old company, they are very selective as who they have in their directory as affiliates. And I am selective as to who I signup with that it would be a company that is compatible with my blog. If you have not and want to check them out and see what companies they have in their directories. In the beginning there is a 5 step signup to get started as an affiliate;
- You choose a user name and passwords then you would add your website/blog link (you can add more than one site you will be using now or add later)
- Then choose the language that your website/blog will be using
- They will ask you a series of questions pertaining to your blog, i.e., whether your blog is adult only, if you utilize coupons, do you display ads on your site, etc.
- Your contact information
- They will ask 5A. TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF (AND YOUR WEBSITE)!
- And how you will want to be paid, i.e., PayPal, Direct Deposit, or Check
- And sign the agreement
- You will also need to fax in a a document for 1099 tax information
Its that simple and then you will get an email from Share A Sale quickly. You can sign up for different companies, some will be approved immediately some take some time.
They also offer Webinars in ways to help you learn about being an affiliate, up to date schedule through 2014, tools and easy to use backoffice to find banners and links with your own affiliate link embedded.

Now here are some hints of how and why I choose affiliate programs after being with Share A Sale for over 3 years.
First like I mentioned at the beginning, I choose companies that are compatible for my blog and my audience. There are many, to include clothing, crafts, home decor, books, even GoDaddy, health products, weight loss, you will find plenty to choose from.
Then after looking through the merchants I choose ones that have cookies at least 60-90 days. This is important.
Then I decided how much they pay out on sales and choose those that do have a higher rate of pay per sale. And I look for “Top 100 Power Rank.” (You can search those out when looking for companies to apply with)
There are plenty of affiliate programs but I have enjoyed working with Share A Sale.
