Affiliate marketing is another approach to monetise your site, but it requires a significant amount of effort and a large audience www.snobessentials.com is a very successful blog that uses affiliate marketing and for you aspiring fashion bloggers they are making a mint!
Basically, you register as an affiliate; with a company such as www.commissionfactory.com.au and sign up for a couple programmes. These affiliate companies then supply you with a tracking code, which allows you to earn a commision even 30 days after someone clicks on the link or photo with your tracking code and purchases a product. However, if you have too many affiliate links in your blog, Google may consider it spammy.
These days you need to be established to be accepted so we suggest working on getting your content on your website such as blog posts and news.

By reducing your affiliate link with an online link shortener, and crafting a clever statement, you may utilise it in your social media as well. Always mark an post that has an affiliate link as #affiliate ALWAYS because If you don't do this you will never be credible.
To make decent money from affiliate marketing, you'll need a large following and an interested audience.

The most important thing you must do when using affiliate links in your blog posts is to declare it up front! Have a mention at the top of the post. You can also add a disclaimer at the bottom such as this one that Deb uses on her blog Sydney Chic.
