Hi! I'm Jennifer - known as 'PotPieGirl' online. Welcome to my blog! I just want to let you know that this post may contain affiliate links which means, at no cost to YOU, that I might receive compensation if you purchase something through a link on my site. In the blogging world that's called "affiliate marketing", and it's a very common way bloggers make money by sharing products they love (like I do). Yes, that's how many blogs make money. For example, This blogger makes $50,000+ a MONTH with her blog - blogging is solid home-business idea for just about everyone.
Thinking About Starting Your OWN Blog? If YOU'D like to learn how to make money blogging with affiliate marketing like I do, feel free to read my Free Blogging 101 E-Course here.
Along with all the other things I do to make money online, I am also a Content Producer for Associated Content. AC pays up front for well-written, and well optimized, articles that are more than 400 words in length.
I started working with Associated Content at the end of May this year, and while I don’t write for them constantly, I have really enjoyed the site. AC also offers what they call a “page view bonus”. In a nutshell, each time your article gets viewed, you make money. No, it’s not a lot, but it’s just one more stream of passive income that I have coming in. The “work” part is done when I submit the articles,- now the articles are working for me!
And, THAT works for me! 🙂
As of this recent page view update, my articles have had over 13,000 page views. Not bad – it’s an extra $20 or so.
Here’s the thing that made me go “hmmmm” when I reviewed my page view stats on Associated Content. I have ONE article that has received over 7,600 views! I was innocently scrolling thru my stats…. a hundred here, coupla hundred there…. then “WHOA! 7,697?!?!?!?”
That ONE article is responsible for over 60% of ALL my page views?!?!?! How could THAT happen?
Thing is, I remember stumbling across that keyword. I was doing my usual browsing thru my keyword tool, browsing thru Google…browsing thru AC….and this phrase seemed pretty “un-tapped”, but was highly searched for. So, I took a chance, researched the content…and wrote an article on it.
Associated Content paid me less than $5 for that article….I’ve already made twice that in the form of page view bonus…in a VERY short amount of time.
This makes me happy 🙂 (<--- See me smiling?)
Seems I’ve got a few readers of my blog now so—-
