As a part of the Blogging Tips series here at Frugality Is Free, I am going to introduce several ways that help you earn money from blogging. The most successful way to monetize your blog is by using several different methods such as adsense, affiliate programs, money earning programs and private ads, because it is the combination of these monetizing methods that will provide you with a proper income from blogging. One of my favorite affiliate programs is Escalate, because of the variety of promotions and because they offer a few pay to click (not pay to sell or pay to sign up promotions) as well.
Escalate is a great way to earn money from blogging, because you can choose which promotions work for you, your blog and your readers. They pay fast and they pay on a monthly basis, once you have reached the minimum payment of $25.
Earning money with Escalate works best, when you write about the promotions versus just having banners on your site. One way to do this is to include links to coupons, once you post your deals, or write about your experience with the company that you are promoting.
Some of the Escalate promotional offers include:
- Free American Baby Magazine Subscription
- Free Baby Talk Magazine Subscription
- Sunday Coupon Preview
- Glade – Right At Home Newsletter
- Kelloggs Newsletter
- Home Depot Newsletter
Whenever new promotional offers appear, Escalate will send you an email with updates. I love that it is entirely up to me how often and which offers I want to promote, because it means that I can include only those offers that fit my blog audience.
Escalate pays via paypal or check, and they pay no later than 15 days after the end of the month, if you have reached minimum payment of $25. I usually reach minimum payment every month, and Escalate always pays fast.
Escalate also pays $3.50 per person, who signs up through your personal referral link. I have included my sign up link in this post, in case you would like to sign up.
