Have You Tried Making Money With Your Blog Yet?

I am usually very skeptical when it comes to make money online programs. However, when my friend Garry Conn mentioned about it in his blog and after talking to him on IM, I have decided to give this a go.

PPJ NetworkPepperJamNetwork is a affiliate marketing network that has just launched but brings a lot of experience to the table being a affiliate marketer themselves. Having meddled with just Google Adsense so far, I am excited at this new platform of monetization here and elsewhere in my other blogs. PepperJam has a nice and trendy interface going for them and have a nice array of various advertisers already in their network that I can see fit this blog.

If you are a newbie to the affiliate marketing network arena, PepperJam has a nice FAQ section that answers a lot of questions in detail. Plus, the PepperJam accoutn comes with a chat facility and a knowledge vault that helps in this area as well.

This could be another one of those programs that comes out with nothingto show for, but I wouldn’t know that and I don’t want miss out on getting in early.

I don’t like to pepper my posts with referral links and I am transparent about things I do here. If you are interested in joining PepperJam, you could be nice to me and use the referral link below to sign up for it. Yes, they offer $5 for every sign up you refer so don’t forget to blog about it after you sign up. I hate to sound like a make money commercial, hey if it’ll pay for a nice dinner once in a while, why not give it a shot right?

    I, too, am excited about Pepperjam. Not only do they have a nice and growing collection of advertisers, but those advertisers I believe are more compatible with my blog and some others I frequent. Additionally, some of these advertisers offer handsome lead generation compensation, which is better than PPC, but not as difficult as hoping for someone to make a purchase.

    Hey, buddy, your blog’s really looking good. 😉

    Till now, I haven’t put up any advertisements on my blog. But sooner or later, I will surely do that.
    As far as pepperjam is concerned, I will definitely use your referral link for sign up. No worries……

    Susan, welcome to ShanKri-la and thanks for the kind words. Looking forward to seeing you around. 🙂

    Kris, thanks for stopping by. I love the PJNetwork interface.. very nice work with it and looking forward to seeing more advertisers that would fit the ‘tech blog’ category although I like the one’s there right now.

    Mark.. that’s very true about the advertisers that would fit a blog. Thanks for commenting on the look buddy.. it is getting there but now I am looking at changing the front page to a magazine style layout. 😀 I think that’ll be a fun exercise plus a useful feature.

    Rakshit.. monetizing a blog is fun. I put off monetizing for the first 8 months of my blog’s inception but then i finally started out with just Adsense. In 2 months, it paid enough cover a year’s hosting and I’m a happy camper. Now, I am venturing further with other options and PepperJam is one of them. Thanks in advance for using the referral link. 😛

    I’ve tried monetizing my blog with AdSense and AdBrite, but so far no success that’s been enough to get me a check, so I’m worried about putting more ads up that will just sit there. Based on your experience of this network (and I know it’s new), do you think it would be something that’s worth checking out at this point?

    Troy, it looks really promising at the moment. But, only experimenting will tell if it’ll fit a blog’s personality or not. I’ll give it a month to see what kind of results I get and start over with another program if this doesn’t work for me. After all that’s the fun of blogging right. Constantly experimenting and improving and learning as we go. 😛

    I’m sure everyone here is curious how you do. Keep us updated, OK 🙂

    Troy, I sure will buddy. 😆

    Some of you have higlighted some of the problems associated with monetising your sites too early. Even owners of established blogs shy away and, in this example, partialy apologises for it. Why? There should be no need to, afterall, it is the major driving force behind this online industry. I for one will look into the affiliate network.

  11. K February 15, 2008 at 2:48 pm #

    That’s very true and I plunged into monetizing almost after 7-8 months of blogging.

    I’ve tried a few different affiliate networks and had various degrees of success – mostly zero success admittedly!

    I’ve got signed up with Pepperjam and I keep hearing good things, but I really struggle to find related products/stores – or maybe I’m not thinking in the right way?

    What is their payment method (can’t find it on their faq)? I’m doing quite good with another aff. network but they send the payment trough check. It will take too long, 1 month for the check to arrive and 1 month for the money to arrive at my bank account. I’m not from US. Paypal will be faster. 🙂
