Monetizing Your Blog With VigLink

I would like to share this website that I've joined back in September 2012, one that helps me to earn a wee bit of side income while blogging. Firstly, I'm not the type of person who likes to promote products in order to meet sales quota or earn commission etc. Secondly, for me, the lesser things I have to do, the better. So let's get down to more details on this...

I like this website because I only need to put in a few codes one time and that's it. Once you signup successfully, the steps to install the codes are as below:

1. Copy and paste the Javascript code into your website. The code should be inserted at the very end of your webpage, just before the </body> tag. The code needs to be present on every page where you'd like VigLink to work. The best way to install this code everywhere is to add it to your site's template.

2. Check your code Installation by entering your website URL in the next field and click the Check button.

3. Configure your settings by making sure VigLink is optimized for your website.

4. You might be required by law to disclose that you're using VigLink. You can read up more on this in their link later.

What happened when the codes start running on your website? Some of these available options are for you to signup on / choose from:

  • The VigLink Convert option converts your existing links into links that earn revenue. Clicks that turn into purchases from anyone in their 35,000 retailers, turn into commissions for you.

  • The VigLink Insert option is a state-of-the-art semantic technology that automatically links merchants, brands, and products to the most relevant and valuable destination.

  • The VigLink Anywhere is where links posted to Twitter, Facebook or even emails can take the earning power of VigLink along for the ride. You just build the URL with VigLink, shorten if you like, and share anywhere on the respective social medias. You will then get paid when clicks turn into purchases.

  • With VigLink Spotlight, it makes your content more shoppable while boosting revenue. Adding this option to your website enhances your content by showcasing the products discussed on each page, making it easier for readers to buy (and you to earn revenue).

Now, remember I mentioned earlier that I'm not the type of person who likes to promote products in order to meet sales quota or earn commission etc so this is good for me as I just put in the codes and let it run by itself. Of course, do not expect to earn a lot of money from the clicks (unless your website has gazillions of traffics and clicks) but for me, it is nice to be getting few USD here and there every month for just putting in the codes one time. No need to promote or sell stuff, or rush to meet quota, or whatever. Payment is made directly into your PayPal account.

Do give it a try, no harm done, tried and tested by yours truly.
