I've launched a new eBook Affiliate Program to help promote my book on How to Earn Passive Income at eHow.com. Affiliate links are a great way to monetize your blog and earn extra money ... and can be another great source of passive income.
The eBook sells for $25, and affiliates earn 50% commission on sales they generate. You can link to the eBook from your blog, website, social networking site, email or other electronic media.
One of the best ways I've found to make money as an affiliate is to create content articles on a related subject, optimized for search engines and readers alike, and include a simple text link to the product or program I'm promoting.
Text links for affiliate programs seem to be more successful than flashy banner ads, in my experience.
You'll need a steady stream of traffic to your blog or content in order to sell products, so promote your work through social media, online forums and blog carnivals.
Best of luck ... leave me a comment if you have any questions!
