      It’s a great opportunity just to get the book for free for yourself, even if you never decide to go on and promote the affiliate offer on your site! There;s not much in life which is free these days!

    I signed up. Do you use the “Make a Page” and “Make a Video” option in Shareasale? If so (and if you have time) could you write a post sharing some of your page campaigns and how successful using those options has been for you. I couldn’t tell if these links were going to your special pages or to the site. You can email me directly if you choose, i’m desperately trying to up my anty in this affiliate marketing game. I have to say that i’ve been a little successful with Linkshare using them only on my Beauty Blog. They have all the good ones like Nordstroms, Sephora, Beauty Bridge, Beauty Encounter, bh Cosmetics, Saks (only 5% so I don’t really use them), Folica and so many more beauty related. So my post have been promoting specific products using the “Deep Linking” option and focusing only on sale items. This is saving me money because I was buying makeup and only writing makeup reviews. My sales has really boosted almost 100% with Linkshare. Now I want to focus on Shareasale and use my six other Blogs for the same way, i’m getting crazy desperate. My husband is retiring in March and I haven’t worked since 2008, thank goodness for Youtube and my Wigmaking business

      Hi Lily, no I’ve never used those options for make a page or video. I usually use simple text links and an occasional banner. I feel a text link doesn’t appear to add more advertising to the site in the same way it would if I added banners or product pages. Although I do have an Amazon store on my sewing site – but i gets NO sales. I should consider closing it really and promoting my ‘for sale’ patterns instead. It’s a great idea to promote sales on your site because, yes, no product to buy yourself and you are doing your readers a favor by saving them money too. Linking out to free content might also be a good idea – use your deep link to link to a page without any products – such as a make up tips or tutorials page. The affiliate link still counts. I do think makeup is challenging to sell online. Your readers can easily go to the dept store to buy it and would probably prefer to do so anyway because they get to see the product before choosing. The fact that you are making some success with make up and beauty products is very positive.

    I signed up for Blurb. I read your blog frequently. I love all the blogging tips. I followed you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google Plus. I was already following on Pinterest.

      That’s very nice of you to leave a message and tell me you find the site interesting. I’m glad it is helpful. I’ve been browsing your site too. Your weight loss is inspirational – I could certainly do with losing a few pounds myself so I’ll be reading all of your tips later today.

      Have you tried writing an email to ask them? Sometime just reaching out and saying that you are really keen and want to participate in this promotion, or work with a certain vendor can help and show you are serious about being a member. Give them a try, there’s nothing to lose.

    Yet another interesting post by you, wow you are simply great!! However i am unable to understand blurb too well. How can i make money by selling books on blurb- i mean can i create any book and then may be promote it on pinterest and earn? Is this so, please let me know

      Yes if you have some great content, such as recipes to share, craft ideas, beautiful photos, you can actually use Blurb to design your own book and have it for sale in their online store, so that people can go and order it. Its printed on demand and no doubt some bloggers probably do well with this. In this post however, I was suggesting using Blurb in the more traditional way that your readers would use it. To make a photo book of their year, their family or a special occasion and earn affiliate commission by sending them to the site. But that’s another great idea for a follow up post – I’ll ask around and see if anyone has done it.

        Just had a look at blurb, but i think its not free, that’s a major turn down

          The only thing at Blurb you have to pay for, as far as I can tell, is to have a book printed and sent to you. Joining, becoming an affiliate to sell their products, and designing a book for sale, those are all free.
