Create a Music Blog
From there you are set to build your blog, now how do you begin making money off of it? There are many ways to make money off of your blog. One way is to join affiliate programs through companies around the world. How an affiliate program works is you join under that company and refer people through your website to their website. Then, as people go to the company’s website through yours, whatever the person buy’s you get a certain amount of money (commission) off of their purchase.
Join Affiliate Networks
The amount made varies from company to company and it even varies among the different products sold. The big name companies you’ll often make huge money off of, such as Commission Junction (Now: CJ by Conversant) and Amazon Associate you’ll make approximately 30-50% on all sales. Smaller companies sometimes offer more through their affiliate programs, but people sometimes will opt to go to the well-known companies instead.
For a music blog you’ll obviously want to join affiliate programs dealing with entertainment of some sort, though but can be difficult to get into when you’re just starting out.
Clickbank.com is an affiliate network that is extremely good to join as you instantly gain access to you choice of over 10,000 digital products to sell on your website.

Where you can find the registration form for the affiliate programs is on the companies’ homepage, and it is usually listed on the bottom of their homepage as affiliate program. When doing a music blog or website you don’t have to just stick with music affiliate programs either. You can focus on entertainment as a whole that way you can join affiliate programs for games, movies, posters

Another bonus to affiliate programs is that there is no limit as to how many you are allowed to join and put on your website.
