It took a little while when I got my first sale through affiliate link, and its normal. As it takes time to develop audience and visibility of your blog and then good things come to those who wait!
My first ever sale was with Amazon Affiliates Program and it was thrilling, even it was peanuts. But it was progress and that deserved a celebration. It encouraged me to keep on working hard and putting my best efforts.
For affiliate programs, it is better to start with services and products that you have used personally. For instance, if your blog is about websites or online services, check if your web hosting provides an affiliate offer. If your blog is about fitness and health, try promoting workout equipment’s or health supplements (that you have used personally).
Promoting products that you have used personally help gain trust between your audience and your content, which is critical for you as a blogger. People buy only from those whom they trust and find credible!
Important: Affiliate links require disclosures. Make sure you write a disclosure statement on your blog that shows affiliate links.
Hope you will try out some of the affiliate programs that will surely give your blog a boost. Feel free to ask anything along the way!
