How to monetize your site and earn money online

You’ve started creating a travel blog and you’re starting to monetize your site. In This post you will find a complete guide to the best affiliate services to earn with your travel blog. For some of them I will also start guides (possibly also video) to explain better how to integrate these services in your blog and how they work.

Premise: In This post you will find affiliate links suitable for a travel blog. You will not find the full directory on the affiliate links on the net because it would be almost endless. In addition to the affiliations with sites that offer trips, vacations and flights you will also find other interesting solutions that I wanted to personally bring in this post.

PREMESSA2: Remember all the login data of the various sites is impossible. If you have a Gmail account you can comfortably use the sheets online to save the various passwords. (or write them down on a certain note!)

Sell Travel and holiday packages

You don’t necessarily have to be a travel agency to sell trips! This is the bright side of history. The downside is that you will clearly take only a small commission (usually around 5-10%) for every transaction you carry out. The suggestion is to tighten affiliations to networks that you know personally too. Because if you do not know a site probably even those who visit your site will not know it and even if you reinderizzerai it on the same to buy a vacation in the Maldives is very reluctant to do so, not trusting the site.

You can make affiliations with almost any of the aggregators travel sites you see. Some are collected under a single platform and for this reason, fortunately, you will not have to subscribe to every single site but only to the platform that manages the affiliations of the various sites. Let’s start the discovery!

Selling travel is really all about?

Not always selling trips on a travel site is really the winning move. Maybe your audience can be interested in something else. For example if you have a successful blog you might be interested to know how you did to create such a nice travel blog. In this case you could create an article in which to recommend your hosting provider (and affiliate with it)

Or do you usually treat sea or mountain trips? You could sell Amazon products that you usually use in your travels! A good book? Why not.

Are you good at taking pictures? Why not recommend your photographic equipment with a lot of affiliate links (always on Amazon or other electronics retailers)

Other ideas

Affiliations with partners that allow travelers to print their travel photos:)

Snapfish.it, PhotoBox.com, VistaPrint.it

The first offers 0.30 cents for each registered, the second allows to earn on 4 euros per sale metre the third 0.04 euro per click and a maximum of 8 euros per sale.

Are you a good photographer? You could sell your photos online!

The services are so many and it is difficult to choose the best… surely the most famous and complicated ones to access it are the ones that make more. Try with Shutterstock, 500px, iStockPhoto, Fotolia, and then the Dreamstime app that allows you to directly upload your photos from your mobile phone (even if the sale makes very very little)

Do you go on holiday with your four-legged friend? Why not recommend to the visitors the same products/items that you use too?

ZooPlus.it has many objects and products for animals.. And you can earn up to 5% on every sale!

Do you like doing business? Also recommended to the people who follow you! There are some portals like musement that allow you to sell activities in your city or wherever you want in the world!

And so on!

Whatever the theme of your post, there will always be something to recommend! Whether it’s a bottle of wine, a hotel or a discount.
