Do you want to earn extra income so you can pay off debt, build savings, or have some extra “fun money” each month?
Do you want to find a way to make passive income while you’re asleep or on vacation?
If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, I highly recommend that you look into affiliate marketing.

What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is one way that bloggers make money.
A blogger posts a link to a product or service on her blog (or on her social media account) and when someone clicks on the link and makes a purchase, the blogger receives a commission on the sale.
If you’ve been blogging for a while, you know that it’s not as simple as slapping up a few links and waiting for the money to roll in. If you want to succeed, you need to have a solid strategy in place.
Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course
Michelle of Making Sense of Cents earns over $100,000 blogging each month – yes, you read that correctly. She’s a master at affiliate marketing and she shares her best tips in her course, Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.
Prior to taking Michelle’s class, I was only making a few pennies each month as an Amazon affiliate. Now, I’ve earned hundreds of dollars through multiple different affiliate programs (including Bluehost, Ebates, Ibotta, and more) and I’m confident that I can continue to grow my affiliate income.
What You’ll Get
The course is 100% online and it includes 6 modules, 30 lessons, worksheets, bonuses, and a Facebook mastermind group. You’ll learn everything that you need to know about affiliate marketing, including:
- How affiliate marketing works
- How to choose the right affiliate products to promote
- How to increase conversions, build trust, and not lose followers
- Legal disclosures you need to be aware of
- Strategies to promote affiliate products
- The tool you need to master affiliate marketing
- The specific steps Michelle has taken to earn over $300,000 from one blog post
The course costs $197 and you’ll receive unlimited access to all course content.
Is the class worth it?
Yes! I was concerned about this before signing up for the course. Michelle makes a ton of money blogging, but she also receives over 500,000 page views per month. My blog is much smaller – I get anywhere from 20,000 to 30,000 page views each month.
I questioned whether or not I could really make money with affiliate marketing, but I’m so glad I took this course. Since taking it, I’ve earned hundreds of dollars through multiple different affiliate programs and I’m confident that I can continue to grow my affiliate income!
As an extremely frugal person trying to dig out of massive debt, I know how valuable money is and I never spend money on things that aren’t worth the cost. This class was definitely worth it!
Whether you have a smaller blog or a large blog, you’ll learn so much in this course that will benefit you.
The only thing that I disliked about this course is that the overview of social media is pretty broad for the most part. She doesn’t go into a lot of specifics (except with Pinterest), which would have been really helpful.
Social media is extremely important for growing traffic and you aren’t going to make money with affiliate marketing if no one reads your blog.
While I would’ve appreciated more thorough information on social media, the class isn’t specifically about social media, so it makes sense that that section was just a general overview.
Who should take this class?
This course is ideal for anyone who wants to make money through affiliate marketing. If you’re brand-new to blogging, you’ll learn everything you need to know to start off on the right foot.
Been blogging for a while but haven’t had much luck with affiliate marketing? This course will teach you how to avoid common pitfalls and increase your income.

I’m still working through the course. I bought it a year ago and then life got crazy. I think the biggest thing for me was Michelle made it seem possible to make money with a blog. I was so scared to even touch affiliate marketing – or monetization of any kind! I’ve started making a few dollars here and there, and I know the possibilities are limitless once I start putting in the time!
I know what you mean. Prior to taking the class, I felt like affiliate marketing wasn’t really worth my time because I had no idea what I was doing. After taking the class, I’ve finally started to earn money with it and I know I can make a lot more if I put in the effort!
