I have being using InfoLinks for almost a year now and this InfoLinks review is based upon my experience of using this service. InfoLinks is an in-text advertising service, which means they scan your post, and converts some keywords into advertisements by showing a double underline below them. There are advantages and disadvantages of using the service and below are each of the discussed in detail. Also I will explain how you can increase your InfoLinks earnings and how you can get more targeted advertisements. [Read more…]
You can make money online in Sri Lanka, but it’s not a matter of creating a websites and displaying ads all over the place.

One of the best and the easiest ways to make money from your blog is to sell affiliate products. Especially in a niche like Making Money online where people are blind to ads and are more aware of ads and actual content its a bit difficult to make money from programs like Chithika and Adsense. This blog makes me 300$-500$ a month and most of the earning are through affiliate products. A blog is a great place to sell affiliate products because you can promote different products according to different users and because of the diverse search engine traffic you are constantly exposed to possible relevant buyers. Although I have promoted quite a few service through this blog I have only recommended handful of products for anyone to buy. Let me share with you the posts that are making money for me from this blog.
My Twitter Sniper review post makes me around 100$-200$ a month. Last month it has fetched me 125.10$. Currently I rank no 1 for the search term Twitter Snipe review in Google. Some of my other posts about Twitter like how to grow your Twitter followers organically and Twitter software to get more followers also rank well in search engines so I’m getting some decent relevant traffic to my affiliate link. Unfortunately Twitter Snipe has sold out and they are going to release a new product that is pretty similar to Humming Bird. The great thing is I don’t have to change my affiliate link and they are going to introduce an up sell which is going to make me even more commissions 🙂 . They are going to release a demo for affiliates so be on the lookout for a brand new Twit Sniper review ( yep they have shortened the name 🙂 ) => 125$
The next Twitter product I promote is the TweetAdder and at the moment there is a sweet deal for you as well.This ain’t targeted Twitter follower thing but a full blown Twitter affiliate marketing system. You get keyword targeting , Geo targeting , multiple account management and the lot. The price of the software depends on how many licenses you buy, so that is what determines your affiliate commission as well. This is a great opportunity to try out the best Twitter Marketing software out there for half of the prize , so if you are interested about making money with Twitter go get it. I make 40$ – 80$ promoting this and I don’t even rank in search engines for this term 🙂 => 40$-80$
OIO publisher is another money maker for this blog and to learn about all the features of OIO publisher you can check out my OIO publisher review. Its a complete ad management software for blogs and you can see it in action in the side bar of this blog. If you are ever consider doing private ad sales then this is one of the best WordPress plug in’s out there to do that. I made some sales in the initial promotion period but now it around 1-2 sales per month which is 17-34 $. This is not bad since I don’t rank that well for the related terms. => 17$-34$
I know this is post is getting a bit long but please bear with me for a bit longer 🙂
Although I make money from this blog this is not the only source of my online income. Forex trading is one of the easiest way to make money but if you don’t know what you are doing then you can loose big as well. Most people are scared of Forex trading because of the complex numbers and graphs. That is where a broker like e-toro comes in handy. I personally use e-toro to do my Forex trading and I promote it heavily as well.You can check out my e-toro review to get the full details. The affiliate payout ranges from 100$-200$. So even if you make one sale per month you are doing good. => 100$-200$
Finally I promote Kim Roach’s Instant Payday Formula. This is without doubt one of the best products that teaches you how to make money online and I have no problem recommending it to any one. You will learn all the basic stuff you need to know to start making money online and for a bit advanced users there are lots of other stuff too. This is a gold mine of information and it is arranged in a neat easy to learn order. If you want to learn how to make money online but afraid of buying a crappy product out there I highly recommend you buy this one. Check out my full Instant PayDay Formula review to learn more about what you are getting for 97$. => 50$-150$
As you can see there are lots of ways I make money from this blog. Combined affiliate sales plus the Adsense earnings make me around 300-500$ from this blog alone , and it continues to grow. If I get product reviews then it goes even higher. You might be thinking I’m getting bucket loads of traffic to make this much from the blog.My average visitors are less than 300 per day, but most of them are highly targeted search engine traffic.
There is no big secret to making money from blogging , its about promoting affiliate products and getting relevant traffic to those posts about affiliate products. The biggest mistake most blogger make is writing about some product and forgetting about it. Find some products related to your blog that are of high quality. I’m personally using or have used all the products I’m recommending so I have no doubt about there quality. Then write a detailed post about those products. Build some back links to that post and rank in search engines. Money will come , no doubt about it.

Today I stumbled upon a great picture that summarizes the dream of making money from your blog. Making money from blogging is possible but it isn’t easy or instant . Enjoy the cartoon 🙂 .

I didn’t publish this post to discourage people from blogging. Blogging is a legitimate way to make money online and it’s fairly easy to scale to very high levels as well. Having said that I come across many bloggers who have started blogging for the sole purpose of making money from their blog.
In my post about making money online in Sri Lanka blogging is featured in the third place. Even the first one creating Squidoo or Hubs require some writing ability. Writing isn’t for everyone. To make money from blogging you need to be a good writer or very good at outsourcing your article writing. I have seen people outsource very well but they are very few indeed.
If you’re not sure about blogging then the best way to start is by creating some Squidoo lenses or hubs. They make it super easy to come up with media rich beautiful articles. You can easily add images, videos, polls, Amazon product links and the lot. If you cant come up with great articles using those two services then you have little chance of doing well with your own blog.
Another things to remember is that writing alone wont make you money. You need to learn to market your website. These marketing techniques range from search engine optimization to social media marketing. You wont learn these skill overnight but with time you’ll be able to master them. Once you do that you will start seeing a steady stream of traffic to you blog. And once you start getting traffic it’s a matter of monetizing that traffic.
I know it doesn’t sound complicated. And if you know what you’re doing it’s not that complicated. But as with any skill this also take time to master.
