As a regular reader of my blog, you might have seen my recent income reports, and how I have taken my affiliate income from £581.59 in October 2015 to £5,195 in August 2016. I increased my affiliate income by a massive £2,299.93 in just one month after taking this course by am always inspired by Michelle from Making Sense of Cents, who has hit a massive $50,000 (around £38,000) per month just from affiliate marketing! Can you even dare to dream about how much that amount of money would change your life? I know exactly what I would do with that sort of monthly income.
I left my full time job in November 2015 and my husband soon joined me and left his job in January 2016. Being self employed is beyond fantastic. When we were both working we were on opposite shifts and it meant that we saw each other for less than 2 hours a day – around 30 minutes in the morning and around an hour at night. Now we are loving life – we are free to work when we want, where we want. We can travel, go on days out, have Netflix duvet days and we are so much happier.
When it comes to my income, I have some big goals to hit. I want to be earning £5,000 a month by December 2016 and beyond that the sky is the limit. I have learnt a lot about affiliate marketing on my own, but in order to reach my goals I knew that I would have to take some further action and look into how I can increase my affiliate income.
I have recently finished a fantastic course on affiliate marketing run by Michelle called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.
So far I have learned so much and I am already seeing increases in the areas where I have implemented changes. This course is fantastic for both new bloggers (so that they can start their affiliate marketing properly from the start) and established bloggers like myself. I wasn’t sure that I had too much more to learn, but not only is the course bursting with the practical advice needed to be successful at affiliate marketing, Michelle shares her own hints and tips with you!
The Facebook group has also been amazing to be a part of. It is a great community of like minded people, all at different stages of their affiliate marketing journey, from massive names to people who haven’t yet set up their websites. I have learned so much from the group, whether it is help with a plugin or some feedback from Michelle herself.
In this course, there are 6 modules, over 30 lessons, over 20 worksheets, bonuses, the exclusive Facebook group and more. Michelle goes through everything when it comes to affiliate marketing, such as:
- What affiliate marketing is and how it works
- Why affiliate marketing is great
- The exact steps she's taken to earn over $300,000 from a single blog post
- How to pick the right affiliate products to promote
- How to increase conversions
- How to build trust and not lose followers
- Required disclosures that you need to know about
- The one major tool you need for affiliate marketing
- Different strategies to use to promote your affiliate products
- How to use Pinterest to succeed at affiliate marketing (yes, this includes the newest Pinterest affiliate rules!)
What’s more is that you can access the course at any time, and you have lifetime access to both the course and the Facebook group.
Everyone loves bonuses, right? By purchasing Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing, you gain free access to these helpful bonuses from Michelle.
Bonus #1: Access to the private Facebook Mastermind group
By purchasing this course, you will receive access to the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Facebook Mastermind group. This exclusive group will help you connect with others who have taken the course so that you can get feedback, ask questions, learn from others in your community, and offer help of your own.
Bonus #2: Free Group Coaching Sessions
This adds, even more, value to the course. I want to help you with your blog so that you can increase traffic, your income, and so that you can help your followers, so what's better than this? Every other Saturday there will be a group coaching session in the private Mastermind group for students in the course. It will be called “Ask Michelle Saturday.” This is your time to get feedback and support from me, and you can ask any questions related to your business, course material, your affiliate strategy, blog, and so on. I will answer every question in the group coaching session.
Bonus #3: Pinterest Strategy – How To Receive Hundreds of Thousands Of Visitors From Pinterest a Month ($34 value!)
I learned my Pinterest strategy from the best, Rosemarie Groner from The Busy Budgeter. She is a Pinterest consultant and helps bloggers increase their Pinterest traffic tremendously. Because I am a huge believer in how Pinterest can help you to improve your affiliate income, I asked Rosemarie to share her Pinterest strategy for my course as a guest instructor lesson. She charges $34 for her Pinterest Strategy Guide, but you get it for free with Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing! I use this same exact strategy for Pinterest, and it has helped to increase my traffic tremendously. This strategy has allowed both her and I to receive hundreds of thousands of visitors from Pinterest each month, significantly improving both of our affiliate incomes.
Bonus #4: 9 Things You Must Do When Something Goes Viral
Every blogger and/or online influencer dreams that their brand, social media post, or blog post will go viral. However, your brand or post going viral doesn’t mean your work is finished. It actually means your work is just beginning! You'll receive a PDF outlining exactly what to do and how to benefit from something going viral.
Bonus #5: How To Increase Your Page Views
You do not need millions of page views per month to make money blogging, but it is something you will want to increase if you hope to improve your income. Once you understand what your readers want, understand how to effectively reach out to companies for partnerships, and know how to charge the correct rate, you can make a good income online, regardless of the number of page views you receive. Increasing your pages view is necessary to make money blogging, but there are many different ways to grow that number. You'll receive a PDF outlining exactly what you must do in order to increase your page views.

My own experience
Money talks, and it is so important to let you know the positive impact that this course has had on my income. I finished the course in July 2016, where my affiliate income was at £2,895.07, which in itself is amazing. In August, after implementing everything I had learned, my affiliate income was a massive £5,195.00. This is a massive increase of £2,299.93 in one month from this course. In one month this is over 15 times my initial investment!
