1M/1M: Affiliate Network For Entrepreneurship Blogs

Posted on Thursday, Apr 28th 2011

Does anyone know if an affiliate network exists for entrepreneurship bloggers? I know from personal experience writing a well read and highly regarded (but relatively way smaller than the TC or GigaOm/VenutreBeat type properties, making it irrelevant for ad based monetization) that smaller entrepreneurship / tech bloggers have a hard time monetizing their efforts.

Would it make sense to have an Affiliate Network that helps these blogs monetize?

A related question I am toying with is what if we pull together an affiliate program for 1M/1M, which is a relatively high-end and high priced solution ($1000 annual membership fee), and we can offer a solid monetization model to the affiliates (say, 10% affiliate fee with a 9-12 month cookie duration).

Any thoughts from entrepreneurship and tech bloggers on whether this would be interesting to you? Conceivably, even if you have 10,000 readers, the monetization could be interesting.

I would appreciate any feedback you offer, as this is a serious strategy question that our team is contemplating. Thanks.

Hi Hari,

Affilate networks are a very well known monetization models for web sites.

The reason you would join the network is to monetize your traffic. As a broad strategy, I suggest you read up on how affiliate marketing works, there is a lot on that topic on the internet. Typically, affiliates get commissions for selling a product.

There is no other reason to join the group than wanting to monetize the synergistic traffic you may have.
