This is one of the reason everybody is doing it.
Whether or not we're doing it right, it's always a question that troubles most of us...well all of us, including the so called experts that claim to know all the secrets of earning through blogging and affiliate marketing.
So, I don't claim to have all the answers, however I read the 'Affiliate Marketing, Just the FAQs' book and I can honestly say, it's a good insight into the business and worth reading.
Below you'll also find a list of my top five performing brands that I work with as a blogger and affiliate marketer.
No, commissions are not rolling in, unfortunately, but they do pop up when I least expect them... sort of a passive income, I guess.
