Great New Affiliate Tip!

I mentioned to you before that from time to time I'd love to share a great new opportunity for bloggers to monetize their sites. I know that, like me, a lot of you are mommies trying to make a couple bucks off of your blog, whether it be through Google Adsense or affiliate links or selling crafts.

I've just discovered a great way to earn a bit of pocket money (and here's hoping it grows to be more than just that!) with Aside from having a great affiliate and referral program, this website also has great access to coupons and discounts as well as a whole bunch of thriving forums for similarly frugal mamas! ;)

As for their referral program, if you sign up to be an affiliate, they will automatically deposit $3 in your account to start you off. From then on, there are two different ways to generate earnings: you can place banners and links on your blog (or in your emails or newsletters) and earn on a pay-per-click basis. I like this site because their minimum cash out balance is only $25 which is very realistic and will hopefully be a reachable benchmark several times a year!

The even better way to generate earnings is by referring friends to sign up. For each new affiliate that signs up, will deposit an additional $10 into your account.

Good luck with this one, mamas! If you do decide to sign up and go ahead with it, please do let them know that CDcontests sent you when it asks who you were referred by! ;) And let me know what you think!
