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). My full policy is here. Thanks for reading!
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—-
