Fridays with Vicky 111
In this often male-dominated industry of online marketing, I thought I would give a shout out to 9 awesome women who are crushing it online.
They are making thousands and thousands of dollars each and every month with affiliate marketing.
Nothing against you guys you are doing a great job but this time it’s the ladies turn to shine 🙂
Making Sense of Cents – $139.233.11
- Income $139.233.11
- Expenses $8064.11
- Net Income $131.169 before taxes
Michelle is crushing it online with her blog Making Sense of Cents where she shares financial tips and blogging advice. In January she made over 130K, yup in one month. A big chunk of that comes from affiliate marketing. She also makes money from her own programs, sponsorships, and advertising.
After her husband persuaded her to live in an RV, she now enjoys full-time traveling and 70-degree weather at all times. She still put her time into her blog, around 40-60 hours weekly.
I wonder if she thought this was possible when she started back in 2011 with the blog.
Michelle, did you ever dream of making over a $100K monthly when you first started out?

Have a productive day,
Wow! I’m in such great company, thank you!
Sponsored ads, I’m with AdThrive and love them. Sponsored posts? I have sponsors approach me, but I believe in working hard and improving photography. I believe that quality photography = more opportunities.
Great tips, thank you for sharing them. Does AdThrive require you to have a certain amount of monthly visitors?
Since images are important are you a big fan of Pinterest?
Suzi Scheler says
Thanks so much for including me!
For traffic tips, let me preface by saying that my traffic didn’t grow overnight. It’s a mix of SEO and patience!
Ahh patience 🙂 Yes
How long did it take you to get where you are now? How many years have you been blogging?
Thank you so much for including me in this round-up, Vicky!! I really appreciate it 🙂
My biggest tip for making more money blogging in 2017 is to learn all you can about affiliate sales (that’s my biggest money maker) and create your own product! I’ve created two products so far and both have done fairly well. Plus, they are so fun to create and share with your audience!
My personal goal is to make $30K this year blogging, which I think will happen! I’m also striving to grow my traffic simply by experimenting with different social platforms and guest posting!
Best of luck to all the bloggers out there!!
Great tips Sarah!! Do you have any go to training when it comes to affiliate marketing?
Go get that 30K this year!!
Tara Tierney says
Thank you so much for featuring me! 🙂
My best blogging tip… learn SEO and apply it to all of your posts! This is how you get found online (Google searches, by far, are the #1 way my content gets found online.)
SEO is not as hard to learn as people think and it will make a world of a difference in just a little bit of time. Feel free to contact me for references on where to learn!
Great tip SEO is super important and over time it really becomes a snow ball effect if implemented correctly.
Great tips but you should proofread your article lest people lose faith in blogging overall.
So just a simple suggestion for next time…
Since English is my second language, why don’t you in a kind way point out the errors so that I can fix them.
The internet would be a much nicer place, if we help each other instead of just leaving passive aggressive comments 🙂
