Million Dollars: A Blogger’s Affiliate Earnings For Inspiration


Total Affilate Income of ShoutMeLoud

In a previous post, I shared a detailed report of my 5 year AdSense earnings, and one of the Shouters suggested that I do a similar post for affiliate marketing income, and it made sense to me that I should share such a report with my readers.

Prior to earning income from AdSense, my initial earnings came from the affiliate marketing where I earned my first $47 as affiliate income, and that was a considerable amount at that point in time.

The funny thing is that when I started blogging I had no idea what AdSense or affiliate marketing was, but I soon came to realize how blogs are making money.  That is a story for another post, but for now, let’s talk about affiliate earnings.

Since I have used various affiliate programs and networks, it ‘s hard to offer an accurate report here, but I will use the report from my major affiliate program and calculate the earnings using that income.

2022 Update: My first million dollar with single affiliate program:

Here is my income proof of an affiliate program where I have made one million dollars:

Here is another affiliate program where I have made more than $700K in the past 10 years:

I will also share with you the related network names, which will help you to identify some affiliate networks that can work for you. You can also check out my earlier posts on Affiliate Programs for the WordPress Niche which will offer you a great list of affiliate programs.

Note: I last calculated this report in mid-November 2013.

List of working affiliate programs with earnings:

Total – $79330.3 ( 50 Lakh INR Approx)

For the curious Shouters, I’m attaching a screenshot from the dashboard of three of my most successful affiliate programs. I have taken this screenshot today, so you will see more earnings than you see stated above.

Other blog monetization program earnings:

The following are not direct affiliate programs but are representative of the monetization networks and techniques that have worked relatively well to date. I am adding this to show you other ad networks in addition to AdSense which will allow you to monetize your blog.

One network which I have tried but have not profited from so far is, a network which is getting mix reviews.

Total – $15106.24 (9.25 Lakh INR Approx.)

Where to begin with affiliate marketing:

There are countless numbers of affiliate models that people follow in an effort to earn money online.  I follow the technique of sharing what I use,  and earning income by doing so.

If you are using monetization techniques other than AdSense, I recommend that you make a slow transition to affiliate marketing as well. Add one or two banners of related affiliate products on your blog sidebar, and see how it works out for you.

I strongly suggest that if you are getting into affiliate marketing, you work on creating a sustainable model rather than a hit-and-run model. The affiliate marketing model is very lucrative and well worth your time if you are doing it the right way.

This year I’m focusing more on turning my ShoutMeLoud monetization techniques into a more product-based model rather than techniques involving affiliate and other contextual ad networks. I will continue to share my education and my discoveries with you.
