Make Money on Your Weight Loss Blog with Pepperjam Network

October 17, 2008 · 4 comments

Do you make money from your blog? I think you should be. Should money be what drives your blogging? No - if you only blog because of the money then I think you will fail. Or at least have a poor blog. But folks, there is nothing at all wrong about making a little money to help for the expenses you may incur for hosting, advertising, contests, and whatever else you spend your hard earned money on as it pertains to your blog.

I’ve seen a lot of bloggers in the weight loss sector with great, heavily trafficked blogs with no advertising. Is it because they think they are selling out? Or because they don’t know how to go about finding advertisers? The major reason why I write this blog is to help me on my weight loss journey but there is also an aspect of learning that I am constantly embarking on. When I first started blogging I didn’t have any advertisers until Google Adsense arrived. For a long time that is the only form of advertising I used. And it works pretty well.

But then I started digging in a little more, learning about how to introduce banner ads and other different forms of advertising. That is when I learned about the Pepperjam Network.

Want to make some money displaying banner ads on your website? Then check out the Pepperjam Network. That’s the simple way of understanding what they are about. You find programs that would be interesting to your readers and you sign up for them. Upon approval you will be given access to a number of banner links which you can then put on your website. If one of your visitors clicks on an ad and ends up buying something, then you MAKE MONEY. Simple as that.

For a more descriptive explanation of what makes Pepperjam Network unique I will quote from their website:

Pepperjam Network (PJN) is a next generation affiliate marketing network, which addresses two primary issues that have been lacking in the affiliate marketing industry for years: (1) poor and unreliable communication tools and (2) lack of transparency. With PJN, affiliates and merchants can communicate in real-time via Pepperjam Chat™, thereby providing a reliable communication system to build better, more profitable partnerships. PJN also provides affiliates and merchants with a measure of transparency, which helps to establish trust and lays the groundwork for open, long-term, profitable relationships.

PJN is designed to make the experience of affiliate marketing profitable and educational for both merchants and affiliates. Unlike most other traditional networks PJN uses Web 2.0 technology to provide affiliates and merchants with an easy-to-use, clean interface. In addition, PJN offers industry leading SID-level tracking and reporting - this robust technology is especially beneficial to search marketing and sophisticated super affiliates that want to take advantage of the most up-to-date technology available to track at the keyword level.

I also belong to a few other affiliate marketing programs and I like Pepperjam Network the best.

Sign Up for Pepperjam Network and Get a $10 Sign On Bonus

That’s right, get $10 just for signing up. But the bonuses only start there. As part of their Blogger Incentive Program they pay $10 per post, up to 5 per month, for you to write about any aspect of their service. Yep, this is a paid post and I will be paid $10 for it. Not bad! Now, am I going to start writing 5 Pepperjam posts a month to get the maximum? Of course not - then this would be a pepeprjamNETWORK blog and not a weight loss blog!

so what do you actually make monthly with these ads? I’ve found working with advertisers just doesn’t bring in much money … like less than a dollar a week with Google. Seems to me that the $10 sign on bonus might be the best you can see from one of these programs.

There are a variety of different advertising options some which are more consistent than others. Certainly I have found that private ads offer a more predictable revenue stream. Adsense is good too, although I have found that on blogs like this one it doesn’t do so well because most of the readers are regulars who don’t click on ads. It is for that reason that I actually hide adsense ads from you. I think the best way to monetize with an affiliate program is to find a product you trust, like and can honestly endorse.

Hi! Is this really effective? If so, then cheers to you! Making money on your blog is not a bad thing, as long as you don’t lose sight of your original purpose.

“as long as you don’t lose sight of your original purpose” - that is a real challenge, that’s for sure. I’m trying to maintain balance.

I’ve actually decided to remove advertising from my blog. My blog is not about making money it’s about sharing my journey.

The only thing I’ll do from now on is endorse sites and services I love - but for free.

I think that’s a fine approach and I can see going that route at some point. For now my monetization efforts are as much for learning as for actually making any money.

John, I know this post is already nearly a year old, but are you still endorsing Pepperjam? I am member of a few of the big advertising companies, but so far I have not had much luck yet :( To me Adsense has worked out best so far.
