One of the most discouraging factors for most is getting traffic. You need to have good, original and interesting content to bring and maintain visitors. Once you are done with the issue of traffic you can monetize your blog with programs such as Google AdSense and more.
Affiliate marketing deals mainly with promoting other companies, products and in return getting a commission when someone purchases the product. This is equally easy though not for all. The more people you can get to purchase a product the more your pay and vice versa. Most of this programs give you a unique link to share on social media, the more people use your unique link to purchase a product the more you earn. To increase your earnings, you can create a mini online market where you drop your affiliate links. So, instead of promoting links on social media, you can just promote the blog or site. That’s a professional approach.
