For many artists and crafters, an additional source of revenue can be earned from the blog portion of their websites.
Affiliate programs (like the one Side Arts offers) are designed so that bloggers can earn revenue by sharing information on products and services. If someone clicks on that link and buys the product or service, the the blogger receives a commision on that sale. Often the commission is somewhere between 10-50%!
Finding stellar art affiliate programs to join is time-consuming, which is why it’s remained at the bottom of your lengthy content creation to-do list for some time now.
Plus, you’re already part of the popular craft affiliate programs. Why branch out?
I hear you. Careful curation is wonderful and responsible. You want to promote products and companies you can feel good about and build trust with your readers.
Here’s the thing. Not all products will resonate with all readers, no matter how much you may love them. A better affiliate approach would be to experiment with a new product promotion each month or quarter. See how your readers respond and how your commissions are affected and keep tweaking until you find the most profitable product mix for your unique situation.
To help you start experimenting, I’ve rounded up a list of 59+ art affiliate programs for crafty and creative bloggers.
