Back in May, Herbal Academy sent me an email saying that the Herbal Materia Medica Course that I liked so much would be featured in an Ultimate Bundle packet. If you remember, I LOVED the Herbal Materia Medica Course. It really helped me focus my interest in local herbs as medicine and inspired several blog posts. (Hibiscus Tea, Cilantro Tea, Tamarindo, Garlic, Matali Tea)
The email from Herbal Academy suggested I sign up for the Ultimate Bundle Affiliate program so that I could feature this bundle on my blog. So I did. (See Herbs and Essential Oils Super Bundle). I thought I’d make the bundle available and be done with it.
Little did I know that the Ultimate Bundle group offers several of these bundle packages per year. I soon realized that these would be excellent items to offer my readers! I did pass on featuring a bundle or two. They couldn’t really be classified into one of the categories I typically write about. However, there were some that did fit.
For instance, I often write about my most recent income generating failure. Enter The Ultimate Work At Home Bundle. I also am a proponent of natural alternatives for health issues. Let me present the Gut Health Super Bundle.
Then there’s the Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle which came out just at the end of my transition year. Perfect!
In August, you can bet I’ll be featuring the Parenting Super Bundle. I aim to be a Super Parent after all!
The best part of this affiliate program is the work I don’t have to do. I don’t have to find images. I don’t have to code links. I don’t have to figure out how to add the buy now button. Why not? Because it’s done for me. I can pick and choose from a whole slew of banners, buttons, and images for each bundle.
How about promotion? Studies say that the average person must be presented with something an average of 7 times before buying. Well, I post to my blog. Then my blog posts to Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Google + and my email followers. That’s pretty much all the promotion I do. I’m not one of those pushy types. If you want it, great, if not, that’s ok too.
So how has it been going? In the two months since I’ve become an affiliate, I’ve made $30 USD. No, it’s not a lot of money, but it sure is less work than some of my other business ventures recently. (See Failing as an Online Book Reviewer). I’m not in the business of blogging to get rich. Really my goal is to cover my blogging expenses like domain names and hosting and if there is a little left over, maybe splurge on something fun. (Failing at your own business-Blogging) With such modest goals, I’ve found being an affiliate for Ultimate Bundles to be a great fit for me!
