By invention of the Internet, times changed. In the beginning, only people who could code could make websites, and make a profit off the Internet.
But, recently, times changed again and more people were able to make websites and make a profit. This was because companies like WordPress and Blogger made it easier for people to build a website from a template and to start posting regularly.
So, how did they make money?
Contrary to popular belief, they did not just make money by posting. Firstly, they had to post about something that they had a genuine interest in and then they had to join affiliate programs, so that they can advertise products on their blog or website.
How do affiliate programs work?
In an affiliate program, you will be given some links or banners to post on your website. If one of your readers clicks the link or banner and then they buy something, you will get a share of the profits. The share will initially be small, around 5% of the total profit, but the more popular your blog becomes, the more people will click on the products and the more money you will make.
However, a lot of people go into the idea thinking that they can post about one thing and advertise about something else. But, it does not work that way. You have to post about an area similar to what you want to advertise.
For example, if you want to have a link to a dining room table in your article, you can't write an article about football and expect to make a sale. You would have to write an informative article about how you would design a dining room, such as.
This is because the readers need to know that you have knowledge about dining tables so that they can trust your word. Your blog or website will be more successful if you are more reliable about your niche.
So, what about furniture affiliate programs?
Affiliate programs surrounding the niche of furniture are very successful. This is because customers are always buying furniture. You might not see a lot of repeat business from one customer, but they will always need something.
There is also a lot to write about when it comes to furniture. You could focus a blog post on designing, buying furniture on a budget, or even repairing and selling old furniture. You can't really go wrong.
You could write an article reviewing certain items, or having a top 10 list for the best pieces on the market. If you were to do this, you could have multiple links in the same article, but make sure that you have built up an audience before you go bombarding them with links.
The trick is to make the article useful and to make the reader feel like you are helping them with something. This builds up trust between the writer and the reader.
Which furniture program?
You can choose whatever furniture program you like, but you should stick to a store that you like and have bought from before, so you are more passionate about the items.
Choosing a company that is environmentally friendly and makes custom furniture is also a good option because you will be showing your readers that you care and that you are giving them the chance to have something nice that isn't mass-produced. Just show the readers that you care about furniture and you won't go wrong.
