I just received another check in the mail today….from one of my affiliate programs. Yes, they pay by check (cash), which I love.
If you are a blogger and are just starting out, you may not have even realized that you can earn a bit of extra money through what’s called an affiliate program. I’m an affiliate for many different programs, and it has provided income for my family, and helped me continue this blog.
So, today I received a check from one of my favorites: My Savings Media
With any affiliate program, you will have to provide your personal information. The first question I get asked is WHY? You will be working with them. You will be earning income from them. They must report this to the IRS. So, if you want to earn money on your blog through reputable affiliate programs, you will have to provide either your Social Security number or a Tax ID Number. The first time I did it, I was nervous, but I’ve never run into a problem. I receive checks in the mail routinely from all programs, and just this past month I’ve started getting those tax forms.
Look around my blog, you’ll see promotions from various companies or deals. Many, but not all, are from affiliate programs. I’ve been featuring several of the programs over the last couple of weeks….there’s no reason not to help out other bloggers who may be just starting out. Any extra money is helpful! Here’s another:
