[Blog Post] 7 Ways To FINALLY Make Some Money Doing Affiliate Marketing

I work with A LOT of business owners who are intrigued by the idea of doing affiliate marketing but don’t know how to do it ethically or (especially) effectively!

I was chatting with a gal the other day and she was a little glum. She didn’t want to feel icky by selling products on her website or to her email list, BUT she really needed to make money with her website or she would have to take on more hours at work. AND she felt like she had tried affiliate marketing before and it never worked and so she was more than a little discouraged.

Etsy Shop Case Study - SallyJGoodrich (Just Starting Out and Needs A Little Help!)

I have a really cool Etsy marketing newsletter and one day a gal named Sally replied back to my welcome email saying..

Awww, so nice that she is still working and hopeful!!! I clicked over to her first shop and was not confused at all about why she wasn’t getting many sales. Her shop was a hot mess.

Why Writing Things Down Matters For Retention

We all know that one person that can only be counted on to do something if they write it down. I actually know a few. I don't mean typing a note on their phone, but physically writing a sticky note, index card or a note on a calendar. They seem to have science on their side too! It's been scientifically shown that writing things down helps you to retain them in your memory better.
